What is a Women’s Intimate Health Condition?

An intimate health condition refers to an intimate concern that affects the function or desired appearance of the female intimate area.

Undesired changes may be caused by ageing or childbirth, or a separate health condition affecting intimate wellness.

Intimate hyperpigmentation is a growing concern and one of the dermo-aesthetic treatments that generate the highest interest. To address intimate hyperpigmentation, we offer solutions to improve the appearance of pigmentation as well as manage intimate discoloration.


When overcome by extreme pain with penetration, women often fear having intercourse altogether. This condition, known as Vaginismus, can result in women totally withdrawing from any sexual contact. This can be treated with Muscle Relaxing Injections that work by relaxing these spastic vaginal muscles.

Aesthetic appearance

Many women lack intimate confidence due to an undesired aesthetic appearance of labia. For this, there are non-surgical solution available to improve the labia contours by increasing the size, enhancing the shape, and improving firmness.

Reduced sensation & arousal

Childbirth, menopause, and the natural ageing process can all affect sexual wellness. Loss of sensation and thinning of the vaginal mucosa can result in decreased sexual enjoyment and functional issues. The O-Shot and G-Shot are both popular treatments aimed at treating these concerns.

Vulvovaginal atrophy

Vulvovaginal atrophy (VVA) is a common and underreported condition associated with decreased estrogenization of the vaginal tissue. Symptoms include dryness, irritation, soreness, and dyspareunia with urinary frequency, urgency, and urge incontinence, all treatable with laser vaginal rejuvenation.
