Our practice recommends 3 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart to ensure long lasting results. It is important to have a good history and physical exam with your treating physician before the treatment to assess overall health and function.

It usually takes 3 treatments, about a month apart to see final results. You can see some results after the first treatment. It is important to have an evaluation before having the first treatment.

I recommend my patients have 2-3 treatments.  This is necessary for full results.  After one treatment you may notice a difference early on.  This can be related to inflammation that occurs after the treatment.  However, for the results to last 2-3 treatments are required.

I recommend 3 treatments, each about 1 month apart from the initial treatment.  Some women may need yearly maintenance treatment depending on the severity of their symptoms.   

DiVa requires a series of treatments for maximum benefit

While you will see some benefits from a single diVa treatment, to achieve long lasting results we recommend a series of 3-4 treatments spaces 4-5 weeks apart. After the initial package patients may want to invest in a yearly maintenance treatment.

Our practice recommends a series of three treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart for optimal results. Then, yearly treatments for maintenance, usually scheduled at their Well Woman visit.

3-4 treatments recommended

You really need 3 treatments to realize full benefit of diVa.  While you will see improvement in some symptoms such as dryness in as little as a week, the vaginal tissue needs repeated thermal injury to create meaningful new tissue growth.  We space treatments 4-5 weeks apart and recommend a "touch-up" treatment yearly.

We recommend that patients has a series of 3 diVa treatments 4-6 apart. We also recommend a maintenance treatment, however, patients are different. Some patients get a single maintenance treatment every 6 months, MOST patients it is recommend to do a single treatment once a year. Others have gone to 2 years. One thing to keep in mind is that we want to restore health to the vaginal and then maintain that, if a patient waits too long and then starts to have symptoms again, they may need to go back and have the initial 3 treatments again. 

hope this helps.

All Vaginal therapies recommend 4-6 wks

The vaginal laser therapy revolution is underway. There are two types of lasers a fractional Co2 ( MonaLisa) or Erbium (Diva). The MonaLisa has extensive scientific studies showing benefits at this time. But, vaginal laser treatments in general are best repeated every 4-6 wks for a total of 3 sessions. I try and tailor the timing of the treatments to the patients anatomy and medical history. For example, some breast cancer survivors on Tamoxifen may take a little longer to recover between treatments (7-8 wks).

For best results, 3 treatments based 4-6 weeks apart is my recommendation for long term results.
