All About The Procedure

Intimate Wellness treatments are normally safe when performed by qualified aesthetic doctors. Nevertheless, as with any treatments, there is always a possibility of complications, including bruising and/or infection. You can reduce your risks by closely following Dr Wilkinson’s advice both before and after treatment.

It’s important to conduct your own research into the treatments and what they entail before your initial consultation. This way, you can prepare questions for me to ensure you receive all the advice you need. After your examination and based on your medical history, medication and overall health, we can decide which treatments are suitable for you. In your initial consultation, it’s important to discuss your expectations frankly and to listen to my opinion. I will discuss the variables that may affect the treatments: such as your age, medical illnesses and social habits. I will describe the treatments in detail, explaining their risks and limitations. When you make the decision to proceed with treatment you will receive documentation from my assistant to help prepare you for your treatments both before and after.

  • Schedule and complete any pre-operative tests requested.
  • You should have a recent Pap Smear and vaginal examination by your gynaecologist prior to treatment.
  • Stop taking aspirin, anti-inflammatories, herbal medicine, diet pills, etc. (2 weeks before).
  • Hair should be shaved in the treatment area the day prior to the procedure.
  • The hair should not be waxed or chemically removed.
  • Start taking medication prescribed by me 2 days prior to treatment to prevent outbreak of Herpes Zoster.

Ensure that you are comfortable and understand the treatments to be performed. You should be clear on the outcome, duration of recovery, side effects and risks. If not ask!

Take normal daily medication e.g. blood pressure, diabetic, anti-depressants. Wear comfortable loose-fitting clothes with easy to slip on flat shoes.

  • After the treatment you may apply a water based lubricant or Ecarin Aquaphor.
  • Gently cleanse the area with mild cleanser and water twice per day.
  • Avoid sexual intercourse or anything placed into the vagina for 7 days.
  • Don’t use tampons for 7 days.
  • No tub baths, Jacuzzi’s, or swimming until skin is completely healed.

NB: Failure to adhere to these instructions may lead to complications and jeopardize the results of your treatment.
