The Diva utilises the world’s first Hybrid Fractional Laser (HFL) technology and is changing women’s lives all over Australia indeed the world, by treating conditions including Stress Urinary Incontinence, VulvoVaginal Atrophy, Dyspareunia, Vaginal Lubrication, Orgasm & Vaginal Laxity. We keep hearing about the Diva treatment for women’s health from both patients and practitioners alike and found a patient happy to share her experience after she got some amazing results. In her own words, “Before Diva I would rather have poked myself in the eye with a piece of glass than have had sex with my husband!”
Our patient says her motivation for having the Diva treatment was recurring UTI (Urinary Tract Infection) symptoms and extremely painful intercourse. “I heard about the Diva through work. I was very relaxed going into the treatment and hopeful of the results.”
Does the Diva treatment hurt? During? After?
“The treatments were quick – maybe 20 mins in total? The first treatment was painless but they did get a bit more uncomfortable with the 2nd and 3rd treatment. There was a slight cramping/burning sensation afterwards which went away with Panadol with the first and third treatment, the 2nd treatment afterwards was more uncomfortable and the feeling lasted longer, maybe a few hours. There was no real downtime for any of the treatments.”
The Diva treatment is said to provide instantaneous results. Our patient agrees. “Yes, I noticed improvements both straight away and they also improved over time. No UTI symptoms at all since the second treatment and no more painful intercourse after 2nd treatment… and also no need for lubricant! I don’t think I need another treatment as I am very happy with my results.”
