Did you know that most women do not know the difference between their vulva and vagina? The vulva is the external female genitals: Your labia, clitoris, vaginal opening, and the opening to the urethra. Your vagina is the inside – the part you cannot see. Unfortunately, most women mistakenly refer to their external genitals as their vagina, and we believe this distinction and education are essential. As women relearn and reconnect with their bodies, they can take control of their self-care. Women's health is a priority, and taking care of your vulva doesn't have to be an awkward topic at all. In fact, it can be very healing for your self-esteem.
There are many ways to take care of your vulva. "Laser hair removal is mainstream and a great way to take care of unwanted hair in the area. Laser hair removal is better than waxing – it's more permanent, won't cause ingrown hairs, and can be less painful," says our aesthetician, Emma. While it isn't a completely permanent solution, it significantly reduces unwanted hairs around the vulva. Most patients achieve their desired results with 6-12 sessions, seeing hair growth reduced considerably.
A procedure you may be less familiar with is Femilift. "Femilift is a laser that goes in your vagina," says Emma. "It can seem intimidating, but it's actually a straightforward procedure. The treatment can be done over lunch and takes about 20 minutes." Femilift helps with vaginal dryness as it stimulates moisture. "If you've had children, it'll help tighten things," continues Emma. "And while it doesn't hurt, you'll need to refrain from having anything in the vagina for 3-5 days after the treatment." This can be an excellent option for rejuvenation if your vagina has been feeling like a stranger post-childbirth.
Another option is the G-spot shot. "Hyaluronic Acid filler is placed in your G-spot. The nurse will use a speculum during this procedure, like when you go to the gynecologist," says Emma. "Once your g-spot is located, a filler is injected. The filler enlarges the G-spot, so you're more sensitive, giving you better orgasms. This can be an excellent option for women who have historically struggled with sexual pleasure.
The O-Shot is much like the G-Spot shot. Emma explains, "Hyaluronic Acid filler or platelet-rich plasma is injected in your clitoris and helps increase sensitivity and pleasure in the area." Depending on where you currently experience pleasure, both injections can enhance your experience or create new sensations you've never had before. Sign us up.
Lastly, for those desiring to take things a step further, there are surgical rejuvenation options like a Monsplasty or Labiaplasty, where you can adjust the shape of both the labia and the entire pubic area. Every woman's body is so unique and different, so these enhancements are up to personal preference and can be a very liberating refresh after childbirth.
Regardless of how you care for your vagina or vulva now, she can always use a little extra attention. Self-care is a meaningful way to reconnect to your own wisdom, pleasure, and sensuality. If you're considering this treatment, know that these procedures can have a lifelong improvement in both pleasure and self-confidence.
