Vagina nation: the latest and greatest for your intimate area
It may have started with the rise of the Brazilian wax a good decade ago, but these days it doesn’t just stop at lady garden maintenance. Today, a myriad of treatments and productscan make even the most body aware female curious about what’s on offer for their downstairs region. Read below for an insight into the most intriguing ways you can nurture your vagina.
A different kind of facial
Vajacials do exist and they are gaining popularity in many spas and salons. As a treatment for the vulva, a vajacial can help reduce ingrown hairs, improve skin quality and are quite the indulgence for the over waxed, stressed out skin around the bikini line. Many treatments will include a moisturising mask, a cleanse, exfoliation and even a steam.If you’re taking the time to rip genital hair out from the roots on a regular basis, it makes sense to nourish the skin to prevent irritation.
Nip and Tuck
You may have heard of a designer vagina, but the medical term for cosmetic surgery that reshapes or removes labial tissue is called labiaplasty. This procedure is surgical in nature and will involve some form of anaesthetic. Aside from aesthetic concerns, many women seek out this procedure to reduce chafing or pain during certain exercise, intercourse or even to just wear tighter pants or bathers with more confidence.Getting labiaplasty in a city location like Melbourne will mean you have a choice of clinics and practitioners to choose from, so attend some consultations and look into their reputations in order to get the highest quality care when undertaking this procedure.
Many people are aware of laser hair removal as a procedure, but resurfacing will address uneven areas and colour of the skin on the vulva, labia and clitoral hood. Added bonus of this treatment is that skin tightening is often a result of the laser and radio frequencies that are applied to lighten the skin colour in intimate areas. In a similar vein, tightening procedures are also available that can address loss of elasticity, dryness and incontinence issues. For an added extra, some clinics will offer dermal fillers or fat transfers in order to offer g-spot enhancement that is said to increase sexual pleasure.
At home products
Where to start? There is basically a product for almost every conceivable purpose when it comes to vulvovaginal health and grooming. The more straightforward include intimate wipes that are pH balanced for the genital area – great when you can’t make it to the shower for whatever reason, and good old Femfresh for a dedicated in-shower cleansing gel. The lesser known include Bush Oil for those who want to nourish their pubic hair, menstrual cups for an eco-friendly alternative to disposable feminine hygiene and pelvic floor tracking devices. Further offerings might be oral probiotics likeacidophilus to balance yeast and bacteria or vaginal tightening creams and gels. Then there are the literally hundreds of sex toys, one for every day of the year!
