Summer is finally here! That means holidays, beaches and bikinis! For many of us, the idea of stripping off and walking around in a bikini all day can be a real struggle, especially if you feel self-conscious about the more intimate parts of your body; yes, we\u2019re talking about down there! You may feel self-conscious about excess hair or stubble rash around your bikini line, or you may feel concerned about skin discolouration on the usually hidden parts of your body. It is also normal for women to have concerns about changes in their vaginal anatomy, which can occur as we age, after childbirth or during hormonal changes. These changes can affect the size and shape of your vaginal tissues as well as the moisture levels. Intimate health and the vagina are often very taboo topics, and many women feel embarrassed or uncomfortable talking openly about these subjects, however they do not have to stop you from feeling good on your holiday. At EF MEDISPA, we are passionate about women\u2019s health, and that includes talking openly about common intimate health concerns and providing effective treatments. To help boost your confidence this summer, we want to share some common intimate health concerns and discuss some of our most popular treatments\u2026 Skin discolouration If skin discolouration on intimate areas of your body is concerning you, our Intimate Peel treatment could be the answer you\u2019ve been searching for. The Intimate Peel is suitable for both men and women. This vaginal and anal bleaching treatment helps to improve hyper-pigmentation around the vagina or groin area, as well as around the anus. Each treatment takes around 30 minutes and doesn\u2019t require any post-treatment downtime. The active ingredients help to lighten the skin on your intimate areas. A course of 4 treatments is usually recommended, along with some home care products to maintain results. Unwanted hair There are many options when it comes to hair removal; but for long lasting results we recommend our award winning Laser Hair Removal Treatment. Using advanced diode laser technology, the Soprano Laser passes light through the skin and into the hair root to destroy the cells. This effective treatment prevents new hair from growing without causing any damage to the surrounding skin. Our laser hair removal treatment has been described as a \u2018warming sensation\u2019. Sagging skin Sagging skin on the female genital area is one of the most common intimate female concerns, therefore, you should not feel embarrassed about contacting us for treatment options. For women that do not want to undergo Labiaplasty surgery, we would recommend FemiTight & Smooth. This revolutionary, pain-free treatment utilises the latest laser technology to heat the labia and improve microcirculation. This procedure triggers the production of new collagen and elastin, which helps to smooth and tighten loose skin on the labia. Dryness Despite the high number of women who experience vaginal dryness, it is still a condition that many feel embarrassed to share with their partners, friends and doctors. Vaginal dryness is a common symptom experienced during the premenopausal and postmenopausal years. However, the symptoms can be increased by hot weather and even by swimming pools and hot tubs, where the chlorine can dry you out further. To address concerns such as vaginal dryness and irritation we recommend the AQ Vaginal Rejuvenation System (VRS) This home care treatment uses patented growth factor technology to help increase lubrication, improve elasticity, and can potentially enhance arousal. Urinary\u00a0Incontinence Do you worry about an accidental loss of urine when you cough, sneeze or laugh? This can be particularly stressful when you are trying to enjoy yourself on holiday. However, the good news is this common issue can be easily treated without major surgery. FemiLift is an effective and minimally invasive laser treatment that can help to tighten loose vagina walls, improve incontinence problems and combat vaginal dryness. A perfect vaginal rejuvenation treatment for all women, no matter what age. If you have a holiday coming up and you would like to discuss your intimate health concerns with one of our Treatment Coordinators, please get in touch to book a private consultation. At EF MEDISPA we understand that women need complete discretion and understanding when it comes to discussing suitable Intimate Rejuvenation Treatments. You can rest assured that your privacy and comfort will be respected at all times. Our clinics offer a warm and welcoming environment to all our patients and your choice of treatment will be handled with complete privacy and discretion.
