As women age, like many other parts of the body, labia majora (the outermost lips surrounding the vagina) lose their youthfulness and can become lax and somewhat deflated due to tissue loss. Changes in this region can be worsened following childbirth and the menopause, leading to both cosmetic and functional concerns for woman.

The changes make women feel self-conscious about their bodies.  Chronic irritation can sometimes develop, which results in genuine discomfort during sexual intercourse, exercise (e.g. bicycling, spinning, horse riding) and wearing tight clothes. It can cause recurrent urine infections and general discomfort.

This revolutionary filler ‘plumps up’ a woman’s most intimate areas – which can suffer loss of tone and elasticity in the same way as her face due to falling levels of oestrogen during and after the menopause.

Desirial can be used to rejuvenate the labia majora, conceal the labia minora for a more symmetrical appearance and improve dryness. It can also be placed inside the vagina to improve the hydration in the tissue and for those that require it we can enhance the G-Spot! The wrinkling and laxity can be addressed by two options-using injections of your own fat or now by using a longer lasting dermal filler called Desirial.

Desirial is a hyaluronic acid is a type dermal filler, a treatment used widely in removing facial lines and wrinkles. The difference is that Desirial has been specially formulated for improving the appearance of the area around the vagina.

Desirial, produced by the French company Vivacy, combines Hyaluronic Acid with mannitol, a natural antioxidant that is found in fruit and vegetables.

Hyaluronic Acid – which is already used in many facial fillers – behaves like a sponge and can improve water retention capabilities in the vulva-vaginal area. The addition of mannitol, an antioxidant, protects against the breakdown of the gel from free radical damage and preserves the hydrating effect and longevity of the treatment. This helps rehydrate and ‘puff up’ the area to maintain elasticity, firmness, and the proper functioning of female genital tissue. It also helps reduce any swelling that may occur from the injections.

Desirial is available in two formulations: -Desirial, for peri-menopausal women or in reproductive age suffering from dehydration of the vulva with or without irritation Desirial PLUS – for peri-menopausal, menopausal, and women in reproductive age with signs of moderate to severe withering.

Many women develop laxity and deflation of the labia majora as they age.

Decreases in oestrogen may contribute to ageing in this delicate area just like in the face. After childbirth and around menopause are common times when women notice this problem.

Is Desirial the Treatment for You? Ask yourself the following questions:

1 Do you suffer from vaginal dryness?
2 Is painful sex affecting your relationship & is it putting you off sex?
3 Does the appearance of your vulva affect your self-confidence?
4 Do you have painful scars following an episiotomy from childbirth?
5 Would you like your G-Spot enhanced to attain better orgasms?

If your answer was yes to one or more of those questions, then chances are this could be the treatment for you.

The process should take no more than 20 minutes.

local anaesthetic gel is first needed to be applied before the injection; the gel is inserted and held it in place with a tampon. If the outer labia majora is being plumped local anaesthetic is injected into the tissue to be treated.

The area is completely disinfected and then local anaesthetic gel is applied before the injection, to treat both the G-spot and just inside the vagina, the special vaginal anaesthetic gel is inserted and held it in place with a tampon for 30-40minutes.

For the Labial rejuvenation treatment (your outer lips) local anaesthetic is injected into the tissue to be treated. The product is then injected using either a needle or a cannula into the tissue. After the procedure you will feel a little swollen and sore but this will soon settle. Patients are advised to refrain from sexual intercourse for 5 days post the procedure to allow the product to settle into the vaginal tissues and to reduce the chance of infection.
