Energy Based Therapy
Just Changed The Game
DiVa is the only vaginal rejuvenation procedure that uses a hybrid fractional laser, the same technology used in the Halo laser to produce remarkable antiaging effects of the face, neck and chest.
Two separate lasers are combined in one treatment, each treating at a different depth of the vaginal skin. This synergy between the two lasers leads to rejuvenated and more plump vaginal skin by increasing the supportive structures such as collagen and elastin as well as new blood vessels and nerves endings.
Also unique to the diVa is that the treatment settings on the two lasers are adjustable so that each patient can receive a treatment that customized to her starting condition. These treatments are administered by board certified gynecologist, Dr. Roberta Huang.

The Leader In Energy-Based Therapies
Treatment with the diVa laser rejuvenates the vagina leading to an improvement in vaginal moisture and lubrication. The diVa doesn't use any hormones so is an excellent and effective treatment option for women who have had breast cancer or other estrogen dependent tumors who may not be candidates for using estrogen to treat vaginal atrophy.
The diVa laser is an effective treatment of vaginal laxity as it thickens the vaginal skin and also increases the amount of supporting elastin and collagen. Women often report after treatment an improvement in experience during sexual intercourse for themselves and for their partner.
The diVa can also help reduce stress urinary incontinence (SUI) where urine leakage occurs with laughing, coughing, sneezing, and exercise. SUI can really diminish a woman’s self-confidence and limit her desire to be physically active or even be intimate with their partner. Often times the urine leakage may be too mild to treat with surgery. Now with the diVa, there is a minimally invasive treatment option. The diVa can be an effective stand alone treatment but results can often be further augmented with the O-Shot using a patient’s own platelet rich plasma (PRP) to further rejuvenate the vaginal tissues which support the urethra.
Diva by Sciton
Gynecology has taken a new and exciting turn with the development of energy-based devices that rejuvenate the vagina with minimal downtime and no surgery.
These new technologies have the potential to have life changing impact on a woman’s quality of life and to revolutionize the way physicians manage vaginal health after childbirth and through perimenopause and menopause.
Conditions like Stress Urinary Incontinence, VulvoVaginal Atrophy, Dyspareunia, Vaginal Lubrication, Orgasm & Vaginal Laxity.
The diVa laser is the most cutting edge technology in this class of energy-based treatments. At Lumera we are excited to offer Sciton's latest most effective line of energy-based treatments.
What Causes The Vaginal Wall Issues?
Changes in the vaginal wall are inevitable as a result of childbirth, aging, and hormonal changes of menopause. Vaginal dryness (lack of lubrication) is a common occurrence after childbirth and breastfeeding, as well as a common symptom in menopause. The decrease in the amount of estrogen leads to thinning of the vaginal walls which can lead to painful intercourse.
What Is Vaginal Laxity?
Vaginal laxity occurs during the stretching of the vagina during childbirth. The vaginal canal becomes “looser.” The problem is worsened through further thinning of the vaginal skin due to changes brought about by menopause. Laxity differs from pelvic prolapse where there is actual protrusion of the vaginal tissue or pelvic organs.
How Fast Will I See Results From The Diva Procedure?
You may observe improvement after a single session. The results will typically depend on the severity of the issue. Some patients need 3 treatments over a 3 month period.
How is urinary incontinence diagnosed?
The condition is diagnosed mainly on the pattern of symptoms. Keeping a urinary diary (a record of daily urination, urine accidents and fluid intake) can help your health care provider determine patterns and establish the working diagnosis. The provider will also ask questions about your general health, your history of incontinence, past surgeries, illnesses and any medication you're taking. A physical examination, including a pelvic exam, will be done, and a urine sample will be tested.
Sometimes other, more complicated tests may be needed to establish or confirm the diagnosis or to guide treatment.
How does incontinence relate to age?
Incontinence should not be considered to be a normal condition of aging. Elderly patients should be evaluated in essentially the same way that patients of any age should be evaluated. Incontinence is certainly more common as patients age, but incontinence can be seen in children, adolescents, and adults.
Why should I care about my bladder control problem?
People often live with incontinence without seeking help. Many cases can be cured or controlled with appropriate treatment. Urinary incontinence is the second leading cause of institutionalizing elderly people. The problem can contribute to decreased socialization, decreased quality of life and depression. Getting up at night to urinate also increases the risk of falling and fracturing a hip.
What's It Like?
Remarkably, the diVa vaginal rejuvenation treatment that takes about 7 minutes to complete after the application of a topical anesthetic. Most women experience minimal or no discomfort during treatment. The diVa treatment is highly automated, which means there are no uncomfortable and repetitive manipulations of the vaginal treatment probe associated with many other available vaginal rejuvenation devices.
For 48 hours after treatment, it is recommended that a woman refrains from sexual intercourse or placing anything in the vagina such as tampons.
The number of treatments recommended varies depending on the age and condition of the vaginal tissue prior to treatment but results can be seen by some women after one treatment, whereas others may require three treatments scheduled about a month apart to achieve desired results.
