As we age, we all notice that fine lines and wrinkles start to appear on our faces, the skin starts to sag a little and we may also notice that our hands, neck and chest areas start to show signs of age; but how many women think about the fact that discomfort ‘down below’ may also be a consequence of ageing?
Thankfully more and more products and devices are coming to market that can address issues and concerns in the female genital area to target a number of indications, including vaginal dryness and tissue atrophy or volume loss.
These include lasers for vaginal tightening and hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers for re-volumisation.
I spoke to Dr Kathryn Taylor Barnes, a cosmetic doctor from the Real You Clinic in Surrey who has been pioneering a ‘labial puff’ treatment during this last year.
I started by asking her, what is Desirial and what it is being used for?
Desirial comes in two formulations, there's Desirial and Desirial Plus, which is the product with more G Prime, (a measure of resistance to deformation or the hardness of the hyaluronic acid gel).
They’re from the company Vivacy which is a well-known French pharmaceutical company. I think they felt that there was a need for addressing the re-volumisation of the (genital) labia as a woman gets older. Particularly with the menopausal hormonal influences, the skin in the labia does deflate, lose volume, elasticity and can add to the ageing effect.
With women now taking HRT and also embarking on relationships, maybe when they're a bit older or with younger men, and also having body hair removal, certain areas are more exposed, and it's also a confidence thing.
