Debunking the Myths Behind Vaginal Rejuvenation

Debunking the Myths Behind Vaginal Rejuvenation



Do you know the truth about vaginal rejuvenation treatments or have you been hearing the myths floating around? Dr. Nathan Guerette at Virginia’s Female Pelvic Medicine Institute has heard them all. 

Women express many concerns regarding vaginal rejuvenation procedures.   These include social issues, fear of bad outcomes or long downtime, and fear of loss of sexual function. Dr. Guerette would like his patients to know none of these are the case.  Using our office-based laser vaginal rejstoration option, the diVa™ laser treatment, women now can treat numerous areas of concern with minimal downtime in the time it takes for a routine medical appointment. He’s here to set the record straight by debunking these common myths about today’s methods of vaginal rejuvenation.

Myth: “Vaginal rejuvenation requires surgery and recovery time”

Fact: diVa effectively restores the vaginal area without surgery or downtime. The diVa laser treatment uses a dilator that is inserted into the vaginal canal and systematically releases energy that will stimulate collagen growth throughout the canal. Not only is it minimally invasive, but this entire procedure only takes 3-5 minutes! Yes, you heard us right. That’s less time than waiting in line for a coffee! After your procedure, you may return to work or your typical activities without any concerns about recovery time.

Myth: “Vaginal rejuvenation is only for women who have had kids”

Fact: diVa treatments can be effective for a variety of vaginal concerns, not just vaginal laxity or looseness due to childbirth. These concerns include: vaginal dryness, weak vaginal tissue, stress urinary incontinence, or discomfort/pain during sex (dyspareunia).  As we age, our skin loses collagen which can lead to vaginal changes.  diVa can reverse that process.

Myth: “Vaginal rejuvenation is too embarrassing”

Fact: Our team at The Female Pelvic Medicine Institute in Virginia is committed to ensuring all of our clients are completely comfortable and confident with any procedure they want to pursue. They will take time to hear your concerns about the diVa process and help alleviate any concerns you may have about the procedure. By pursuing vaginal rejuvenation with such a simple and easy process like diVa, people will not even know that you decided to help your body by addressing your vaginal concerns.

Don’t let any of these myths keep you from improving intimacy and correcting discomfort. If your vaginal concerns affect your self-confidence, relationships, health or you are curious about how the diVa laser treatment can help you, schedule your initial consultation with Dr. Guerette today.

I put off seeing a doctor because I was embarrassed about my condition. Dr. Guerette put me at ease and, ultimately, he made me feel like a new woman.
