Women’s health can be a complex and nuanced issue. Some of the ways your body changes as a result of childbirth, menopause, or aging can be tricky to discuss, even with a doctor. You might think difficulties with sex are a sign of getting older, or that they aren’t worth bringing up. So you keep them to yourself. Then, you’re the one who suffers.
If you have experienced any problems enjoying sex, you aren’t alone. The hormonal changes we all go through as women can decrease our natural lubrication as well as our ability to climax. They can even cause incontinence. All of these issues can cause your self-confidence to take a big hit.
But it doesn’t have to be that way. There are treatments available to improve your sexual health and wellness. You deserve to feel confident, secure, and satisfied. And sexual vitality treatments like diVa can help you do just that!
What Is diVa?
The diVa treatment is a laser resurfacing procedure that improves vaginal tissue in just 3-5 minutes. It’s a treatment that has helped hundreds of women across the nation find relief from bladder leakage, vaginal dryness, and even saggy tissue.
The diVa sits inside a disposable dilator. The diVa autorotates during the procedure, ensuring that all vaginal tissue is treated. It might seem painful, but a topical anesthetic is applied before your treatment to minimize your discomfort. Most patients report feeling a slight pressure while the laser is active. After the treatment, you’re free to resume your normal schedule and may experience some discharge or spotting.
The real benefits of diVa come in the following weeks. Stretched skin becomes tighter, dry skin becomes more supple, damaged tissue is repaired, and sexual health and enjoyment increase. Many women get multiple treatments throughout the year to maintain their results. On average, the benefits of three treatments can last up to 12 months.
In the past, women have had to suffer through the damaged vaginal tissue that can come with age and childbearing. Today, there’s hope for a better sex life. With this treatment, you can recover the body of your youth, increasing your confidence and your ability to really enjoy sex again!
When Should You Consider diVa?
While diVa treatments are available for all women, we generally see women from their 30s into their 60s. Hormone fluctuations from childbirth and menopause can negatively affect your vaginal tissue, which can affect your sexual enjoyment. Here are some signposts to know if you may be a good candidate for diVa:
Regaining Your Body After Childbirth
We all know that having children affects literally every area of our lives. Unfortunately, many people never tell you what can happen to your vaginal tissue as a result of both hormones and tissue trauma during delivery.
While we can’t help with 3 a.m. feedings or the fact that you may never sleep again, the diVa treatment will help you regain the body you had before all that! Tissue damage and dryness are just a couple of things that can be reversed with diVa.
We recommend starting as soon as you’re finished having children—the younger you begin having this treatment, the better the results will be.
Recovering From Menopause
Are you going through menopause? If so, you know the massive changes that can bring to your body, and few of them are good.
Not only are you dealing with hot flashes and mood swings (hello, teen years re-run) but also decreased lubrication, which can impact your sexual enjoyment. The new dryness is also generally accompanied by tissue laxity which, simply put, is that your vaginal tissue has lost much of its elasticity.
Starting a diVa treatment series during or immediately after menopause can ensure that your sexual health doesn’t begin to decline.
Treating Bladder Leakage
Have you experienced frequent bladder leakage? Do you have a mini-panic attack if you feel a sneeze coming on? Are you worried you might have to start wearing a pad to Zumba class?
Mild urinary incontinence affects an estimated 15 million women in the United States. The longer you leave it, the worse it typically gets. So stop bladder leaks before they stop you from enjoying your life. As soon as you start to experience leaking when you exercise, stand up, sit down, sneeze, or laugh, schedule an appointment with the Matrix team to find out if diVa can help.
