diVa, the world’s first hybrid fractional laser for vaginal health, is a fully-automated in-office treatment. Just 3-4 minutes to perform, diVa is nearly 10 times faster than its competitors, which average around 45 minutes.
Helping Women Improve Their Quality Of Life And Self-Esteem
diVa, the latest innovation developed by Sciton, expands the broad range of JOULE™ platform capabilities to address a woman’s most intimate challenges. This new modality utilizes the revolutionary Hybrid Laser Technology developed for Halo™, the world’s first and only Hybrid Fractional Laser, to treat the vaginal tissue so that women can feel more like their younger, vital selves.
Two major events in a woman’s life can lead to decline in vaginal health:
Childbirth stretches the vaginal canal and surrounding tissue. The vagina can mostly be repaired by the body’s own healing response. With many women, however, the tissue may not return to the same state as before childbirth. This stretching damages the vaginal walls, perineum, and surrounding tissues, which often leads to diminished vaginal health and function.
Menopause and other events such as a hysterectomy, chemotherapy, or the process of breast-feeding, may lead to reduced estrogen production by the ovaries and may often lead to thinning, drying and inflammation of the vaginal walls. For many women this may decrease healthy vaginal functionality.
Science + Technology
Mechanism of Action
diVa delivers both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths to the same microscopic treatment zone: The 2940 nm wavelength is used to deliver 0 to 800 microns of ablation and the 1470 nm wavelength is used for delivering 0 to 700 microns of coagulation to the vaginal mucosa. This gives diVa the unique ability to provide customizable treatments based on the patient’s vaginal health concerns.
According to gynecologist Johnny Peet, MD, FACOG, “clincial evidence, including histology evidence, has demonstrated epithelial thickening and collagen remodeling of lamina propria which leads to returning vaginal wall tissue to an improved state in both pre and post menopausal women.” Visit Dr. Peet’s website at www.WoodlandsMedicalAesthetics.com.
Histological assessment showed evidence of an increase from a mean of 320 ± 26 μm to 434 ± 38 μm, Figure 1. At higher magnification, the Masson’s trichrome stained tissue, Figure 2, 3, showed a change from loose, haphazard collagen before to denser, horizontal streaming collagen. Fibroblasts were more activated after treatment with larger nuclei and open chromatin, which would suggest increased tone of the vaginal wall. Vascularity was more notable with endothelial enlargement in the superficial lamina propria and small vessels appeared more stented open.

Actual Patient Testimonials
“Before my diVa treatment I was very insecure during sex. The laser treatments have really improved my self-confidence. I am most impressed by how quickly my partner/spouse could notice a difference even after the first treatment.”
“After having the diVa procedure, I feel like I am 33 instead of 53. I think all women should have this…it really makes a huge difference.”
“I didn’t know what I was missing. diVa has allowed me to fully enjoy intimacy with my husband. I am so thrilled at the treatment as is my husband. It was a very worthwhile investment and I would certainly do it again. I was impressed that the procedure is quick with little to no discomfort, and no downtime.”
“I was a little self-conscious before diVa. I think the laser treatment made my relationship with my partner even better and even he noticed a difference. I am most impressed that this procedure is quick and offers tangible results. I look forward to the fact that I can have more treatments in the future to maintain the benefits and keep aging well.”
