diVaTyte FAQS

What is the treatment like?

The diVaTyte light energy is delivered in a sequence of rapid, gentle pulses that begin by warming the vaginal tissue. A series of pulses will cover the area in a motion technique similar to getting a massage. The sensation of warmth increases homogenously throughout the treated tissue as the pulses are delivered. While the process is completed typically within 10-20 minutes, it can depend on the anatomy and goals for the end result.

What should I expect after treatment?

The warming sensation subsides almost immediately. You may experience some mild redness in the treatment area. A return to your normal skin color may occur as soon as a few minutes to approximately an hour. Sometimes the skin swells slightly as the water in the tissue is heated. We sometimes refer to this as “happy edema” as it is a sign that the tissue is responding.

What aftercare do I need?

Since this is a non-invasive procedure, in most cases you may resume regular activities following the treatment. This can include bathing, swimming, and sexual activity. Your practitioner will guide you if a particular activity should be avoided in your situation.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of treatments needed may vary from patient to patient as well as the recommendation by your practitioner. A treatment assessment plan can be personalized for the level of improvement you desire. A typical plan is 3-5 treatment sessions based 2-3 weeks apart.

What results should I expect?

diVaTyte procedure results may vary from patient to patient. The diVaTyte procedure is recommended for patients who desire mild to moderate noticeable tissue improvement without having to undergo surgery. Your practitioner can consult with you on your level of improvement and goals. Full results of firmness and elasticity are built around the body’s tissue remodeling process which can take up to 4 months for the foundation to be strengthened.
