Many women suffer from skin laxity and loss of plumpness around the labia minora and labia majora- the inner and outer lips of the vagina. This may happen after childbirth or due to hormonal changes as they age. However, skin laxity and loss of plumpness can also occur in younger women. When such changes occur, women generally notice it, and these changes often lead to a loss in body confidence and even reduced sexual satisfaction. Until now, the only way to rejuvenate this intimate part of a woman’s body was with vaginal surgery, a rather painful and invasive procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions:

The Intima™ procedure is not painful at all. The patient typically feels a pleasant warming sensation during the treatment.
Tightening of the treatment area can be expected because new collagen and elastin fibres are formed. The labia is remodelled (e.g. smaller) and the treatment area is smoother due to sebum secretion of the sebaceous gland—also, blood supply increases, which improves libido and sexual satisfaction. The research suggested that tightening can be expected on the external and internal vulvovaginal tissues.
The procedure is ideal for women who have hypertrophy of the labia minora (enlargement in inner lips) or/and enlarge labia majora (enlargement of the outer lips). The Intima procedure is also performed for aesthetic reasons. For example, laxity or deflation of the labia or perineal loosening due to childbirth.
One session takes around 20 minutes, and a course of 4 procedures over four weeks is generally recommended. An annual maintenance course is recommended to maintain the results.
