We use topical numbing medication for about 20-30 minutes prior to the procedure. During the beginning of the procedure, the laser feels like a knocking sensation on the inside. As the laser moves towards the introitus, it becomes stronger. There isn't pain, but the sensation can be anxiety provoking. The best news is that the entire treatment lasts 3 minutes! If you are very nervous, we can provide medications that help make you calm if you bring a driver. There is absolutely no discomfort after the treatment is over. It is well worth it for the sexual enhancement it provides!
Is diVa vaginal laser therapy painful?
Doctor Answers 7
The diVa vaginal therapy is a comfortable in office procedure. We recommend the use of vaginal anesthetic cream prior to the procedure. Most patients report mild discomfort during the procedure which only takes a few minutes, and zero discomfort once the procedure is completed.
Patients have described the sensation as being "not as bad as my annual GYN visit". Most say 2-3 out of 10 discomfort. Topical anesthesia is key.

The DiVa Vaginal laser procedure is very fast, taking less than 5 minutes to perform. If topical numbing cream is used prior to the procedure, most women give it a 2-3 out of 10 for pain. If no numbing cream is applied, most women would give it a 5-6 out of 10 for pain, but the procedure is over before you really want to complain. No pain at all once done!

A topical anesthetic is applied in the vagina before the treatment. Patients describe the pain as a 3-4 out of 10. The pain varies with each patient but it's only 3-5 minutes.
