Vaginal dryness is one of those intimate issues some women find difficult to discuss because they don’t realize that it’s a common problem. Vaginal dryness affects countless women, but they often don’t know that the condition can be effectively treated. Are you wondering how to treat vaginal dryness?
At Best Self Medical Arts, we understand that treating vaginal dryness can help women regain control of their bodies, so we offer several non-surgical treatment options.
How Should I Treat Vaginal Dryness?
Vaginal dryness is an uncomfortable condition that can cause pain with intercourse, and affect a woman’s self-esteem and quality of life. The vagina changes with age, and factors such as childbirth and menopause also affect the strength and flexibility of the vaginal tissues.
Vaginal Dryness Caused By Hormone Changes
Vaginal dryness often occurs as a result of a drop in estrogen levels. Estrogen is an essential hormone in the body that helps to lubricate the vagina and keep the tissues thick and elastic. When estrogen levels decline, the vaginal tissues become thinner and drier. While vaginal dryness can affect women of any age, it is very common in women over the age of 45.
diVa Laser Therapy For Vaginal Dryness
diVa vaginal treatment is a quick, comfortable laser treatment that uses dual fractional laser technology to rejuvenate the vaginal tissues and alleviate vaginal dryness. diVa utilizes innovative technology that combines both ablative and non-ablative lasers, which makes it possible to customize treatment.

How diVa Works
diVa simultaneously delivers ablative and non-ablative energy to the walls of the vagina. The laser energy resurfaces the vaginal wall, resulting in new, healthy tissue, and heats the layers of vaginal tissue, triggering collagen growth. The fresh collagen restores the structure of the vaginal tissues, which thickens the vaginal lining and increases blood supply and lubrication.
How Many DiVa Treatments Do You Need?
Three diVa treatments are recommended for optimal results, and sessions are spaced about one month apart.
Bioidentical Hormones For Vaginal Dryness
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is another proven treatment for vaginal dryness. Bioidentical hormones are plant-derived and have an identical molecular level chemical structure to the original hormones in the body. As a result, they can replicate the functions of the hormones produced by the body.
When used to treat vaginal dryness, bioidentical hormones replenish and balance hormone levels, and this helps to relieve vaginal dryness and other symptoms of vaginal atrophy.
BHRT is a precise treatment that is designed to address hormonal deficiencies. Bioidentical hormones are considered safer than synthetic hormones as they are compounded by a pharmacist, and customized to meet the unique needs of each patient.
Bio-identical hormones may be administered in different forms including creams, patches, pills, and gels.
