There are some women who have issues with very large labia minora (inner lips of the vaginal opening). These women may feel uncomfortable (when intimate) due to the appearance. In some cases the size of the labia may cause them to become irritated with certain clothing or may be prominent while wearing some types of swimwear. Activities such as cycling or horseback riding can also cause irritation or discomfort. Sometimes intercourse can be uncomfortable.
A recent improvement in the treatment of large labia minora is to use a noninvasive, nonsurgical labia reduction technique.
Advantages of Nonsurgical Labia Reduction
Traditionally, a surgical procedure known as labiaplasty has been performed to reduce the size of the labia minora and most women are extremely pleased with the outcome. Labia reduction is a very successful outpatient procedure with excellent results. The disadvantage is, however, that labiaplasty is a surgical procedure with the necessary recovery.
Exilis can achieve results that are equivalent to surgical labiaplasty, but without any downtime.
The use of Exilis Ultra Femme 360™ to shrink the labia minora is very, very successful. This is an in-office procedure; there is no pain, no recovery and no restriction of activities after the procedure. The Exilis treatment takes about 30 minutes and normally only two treatments are needed. Exilis can also be used to tighten the surrounding areas as well.
Exilis nonsurgical labiaplasty, in my opinion, represents a dramatic improvement in the treatment of large labia minora and is an excellent substitute for a surgical labiaplasty in all but the most severe cases.
