If you are a woman, you may already know that as women age, tissue volume loss can result in changes to the appearance and functionality of the vaginal area. In particular, the labia majora, the outermost folds of skin surrounding the vagina, may become lax overtime, particularly after menopause. Similarly, many women suffer from urinary leakage, also known as stress urinary incontinence (SUI), caused by a weakened pelvic floor. These changes are both aesthetic and functional. They can be a source of embarrassment and often impact a woman’s sexual satisfaction, which understandably leaves her searching for solutions.
Many women in Toronto know that dermal fillers can be used to smooth and volumize our faces, but did you know that fillers can be effectively used in the vaginal area? Some women, regardless of age have difficulty reaching orgasm even when sexually aroused and stimulated, which can lead to regular frustration. Luckily, each of these concerns can be treated with vaginal fillers, an innovative treatment option now offered at Philosophy of Beauty in Vaughan. We bring leading edge beauty and intimacy solutions to clients in Thornhill, Toronto and the GTA.
While facial fillers, such as Juvederm and Restylane, plump up the lips, fill wrinkles and smooth aging skin, fillers are also an excellent, non-surgical solution to treat stress urinary incontinence, provide vaginal tightening and G-spot stimulation, without the cost and recovery time associated with surgery. These natural and revolutionary fillers can be used to plump the treatment area, tighten loose skin and increase sensitivity to the vulvar area, while improving urethral control of urinary flow.
The G-spot, or Grafenberg spot, is located approximately two to three inches up the anterior vaginal vault and is believed to increase sexual arousal and stimulation, enabling many women to achieve vaginal orgasms. However, its location makes the G-spot difficult to find and stimulate, which can impact a woman’s ability to reach an orgasm, resulting in a disappointing sexual experience.
Pleasure enhancing injections is a vaginal filler treatment designed to increase sensitivity by enlarging the size and thickness of the anterior of the vagina, making the G-spot more accessible in order to encourage sexual stimulation and gratification. During this procedure, a hyaluronic acid filler such as Juvederm or Restylane is injected both into the G-spot and the outer vagina, which heightens its sensitivity and increases the response to G-spot manipulation.
Overtime, our body’s production of collagen and elastin gradually reduces, which causes changes in facial features like thinning lips and sagging. Although they are not visible, when the tissues within the vaginal canal also lose their elasticity and thickness, or arestretched as a result of childbirth, this can impact gratification for both sexual partners. In addition, the labia majora can also become droopy or wrinkled overtime, which can have a detrimental impact on your self-esteem and sex drive.
Vaginal fillers are a non-surgical method of vaginal rejuvenation, which temporarily and effectively tighten vaginal tissues and plump up the labia majora, restoring the appearance and functionality of female genital tissue. During your vaginal filler treatment, a hyaluronic acid filler will be placed with a fine needle into the vaginal walls, the outer lips, or both, depending on the desired results of the treatment. As a result of the filler’s ability to tighten the vaginal canal and restore the appearance of the vaginal area, patients experience increased confidence and sexual fulfillment- instantly!
Due to aging or childbirth, many women experience stress urinary incontinence (SUI), also referred to as involuntary urination. When the pelvic floor is weakened, everyday actions or activities that increase pressure such as coughing, laughing, exercise, and sexual intercourse can result in unintentional urine loss. Understandably, this condition can be a source of great embarrassment and affect a person’s social life. You don’t need to suffer in silence any more. There are simple and safe treatment options available at Philosophy of Beauty where our experienced medical staff use vaginal fillers to improve urinary flow resistance by augmenting the urethral wall. Bulking agents such as hyaluronic acid fillers will increase the thickness of the urethra wall so that it can seal tightly when holding in urine. Fillers are injected into the tissue around the urethra, outside of the muscles at the outlet of the bladder. This is an excellent alternative for patients who do not wish to undergo surgery.
Vaginal fillers are injected by our experienced practitioners in as little as 20 to 30 minutes, which means patients can be in and out during their lunch hour. Prior to the procedure, an an anesthetic gel is applied to the interior treatment area or a local anesthetic may be injected in order to ensure that you are kept comfortable throughout the procedure. However, because the injections are made in particularly sensitive locations, you may experience some discomfort. Luckily, the injection of the filler itself is often completed in as little as 5 minutes and HA fillers contain analgesics to numb treatment areas.
Afterwards, you can immediately resume your normal day-to-day activities, as no downtime is required. However, when the injections are used externally, swelling or mild discomfort may be present in the treatment area for the first few days and sexual intercourse should be avoided for at least 5 days. This allows the injected solution time to settle and ensure there is no chance of infection. Depending on the area being treated, results can last anywhere from 4 to 12 months. Over time, the fillers, made of natural substances, are gradually absorbed by the body. Thus, additional treatments are required to maintain optimal results, typically every 9 to 16 months, depending on your individual needs.
Due to the personal and sometimes embarrassing nature of stress urinary incontinence, sexual dissatisfaction, and lax or weakened vaginal tissue, many women do not reach out for cosmetic solutions.
