Is topical anesthetic necessary during the diVa Procedure?

Will a patient require topical anesthetic during this treatment?

DiVa numbing

The procedure is an in-office treatment, and topical anesthetic can be applied but its not necessary.  In our office we do suggest a numbing to keep our clients completely comfortable.

Topical Anesthetic

The topical anesthetic  is recommended to make the procedure more comfortable. Each patient's treatment plan is individualized so if you don't want the topical you can discuss different options with your provider.
