Vaginal injections, or labia majora injections, can restore the labia to create a plump, youthful appearance. This procedure is customized to match the patient's anatomy and performed with a dermal filler. If you are uncomfortable with the appearance of the outer vaginal lips, these injections can create a youthful curve in the area without surgery or downtime.
What Are Vaginal Injections?
Vaginal injections are performed with hyaluronic acid-based fillers. Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by the body and commonly used on the face to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. The filler adds soft, plump volume to the vaginal lips, with results that look and feel entirely natural. You will need regular injections at six to twelve-month intervals to maintain the rejuvenated look.
What Can Vaginal Injections Do?
Vaginal injections can dramatically improve the appearance of the labia majora. It can make the labia appear:
- More youthful
It can also correct asymmetry, making patients more confident in intimate moments. Another positive side effect is that these injections can improve sensitivity in this area.
What Are the Benefits of Vaginal Injections?
While the primary benefit of vaginal injections is a more youthful-looking labia majora, the added volume strengthens the protective function of the outer vaginal lips for greater comfort. Unlike other treatments available to improve the aesthetics of the labia, vaginal injections are non-invasive and require little to no downtime. That means you can go about your day soon after your injections without concerns about side effects.
How is the Procedure Performed?
Vaginal injections are a straightforward, non-invasive procedure. Before the injections are administered, a topical anesthetic will be applied to the area, so you will not feel any discomfort during the treatment. After the area is effectively numbed, the outer vaginal lips are carefully injected with the fillers. Generally, the procedure can take in the range of 30 minutes to an hour to complete. You will be given aftercare instructions but do not need to plan for time off for recovery.
The Recovery Period
After your treatment, you may experience several mild side effects, including swelling, redness, and bruising at the injection sites. The pain can be easily managed with over-the-counter pain medication and can be expected to fade after a few days. It is essential to keep the treated areas clean and dry. Apply an ice pack on and off to help limit any discomfort.
