Until recently, women have long suffered poor vaginal health in silence. Thanks to an increased awareness among doctors about women’s quality of life issues, new laser technology is available that answers the call. At Columbus Anti-Aging Medicine and Aesthetic Surgery, Dr. Gene Meisenberg offers diVa® laser vaginal rejuvenation to his clients in Brooklyn, New York, which restores vaginal health in a noninvasive procedure.

There are two main culprits behind poor vaginal health:
After the birth of your baby, your body’s natural healing processes work to restore the walls of your vagina and your perineum, which were stretched to their limits during the delivery. While your body has a fantastic ability to heal itself, sometimes your vaginal tissue doesn’t bounce back completely.
Hormones play a vital role in how your body operates, facilitating your body’s many processes according to the task at hand. While you’re in your childbearing years, your estrogen manages your reproductive systems, which includes vaginal health.
When your estrogen levels drop, whether due to menopause or outside medical issues, your vaginal health can decline, leaving you with vaginal dryness and thinning vaginal tissue.
In the simplest of terms, laser vaginal rejuvenation signals your body to produce collagen and elastin in your vaginal tissue, restoring it to good health.
To accomplish this, Dr. Meisenberg uses diVa laser vaginal therapy. The diVa system features hybrid fractional laser technology, which provides independent levels of ablation and coagulation. The technology also allows Dr. Meisenberg to adjust the levels of density according to the varying needs of his patients.
One of the advantages of the diVa system is that it features a dual laser device, including a handpiece called the diVaTyte™ for tightening external genitalia. This device allows Dr. Meisenberg to address your vaginal health both inside and out at the same time.
Ultimately, the diVa laser system allows Dr. Meisenberg to precisely target the area you’d like treated with controlled energy pulses that are designed to prompt a healing response in your tissue, without damaging it.
During your consultation, Dr. Meisenberg sits down with you to review your goals and creates an appropriate treatment plan. In general, most patients undergo one to three treatments, spaced four weeks apart. That allows time for your vaginal tissue to respond in between treatments.
Each treatment lasts only three to five minutes, and you’re free to return to your normal activities directly after. You should, however, refrain from sexual intercourse for 48 hours after each treatment.
Results are gradual, as your body increases its collagen and elastin production. In general, you’ll notice results after four to six weeks, with optimal results in 12 weeks.
If you’re suffering from poor vaginal health, you no longer have to grit your teeth and bear it. Call Columbus Anti-Aging Medicine and Aesthetic Surgery for an appointment, or use the online booking tool to schedule a visit.
