Diva for vaginal rejuvenation
The diVa procedure is very safe and effective and has been approved for patients above the age of 25. You can expect to be in the office for 30 minutes or so. The first 20 minutes are for numbing and changing into a gown. The procedure itself takes 3-5 minutes and there is no manipulation of the machine during the procedure like the other lasers on the market. Also, the portion of the laser that is inserted is disposable making it very hygienic. You will experience so spotting for a day or two. There can be a mild pressure sensation for an hour or two after the procedure as well. We don't recommend vaginal intercourse or submerging in water for a few days. Other than that, not much else to expect or worry about.
All the best!

Does age matter?
The minimum age for treatment is 25. If you are 25 or older, I suggest consulting with a Pelvic specialist to address any vaginal concerns. See someone who is well versed in the many different vaginal lasers and RF therapies on the market so that they can determine the right treatments based on your needs/goals. Therapies and treatments may be different or even combined and is dependent not only your age but on your on vulvovaginal symptoms, urinary issues anatomy and or past medical history.
FDA has cleared the procedure for women over age 25, but every woman's body is different and depending on circumstances like childbearing and hormonal changes you could see meaningful improvement in vaginal health at any age.
