What is it?

Women’s Intimate Wellness encompasses a whole range of treatments  which are designed to rejuvenate and restore a women’s intimate genital region.  Age, decreasing hormone levels, and previous childbirth result in many changes in this area, including loss of volume, decreased sensation, decreased sexual satisfaction, urinary stress incontinence, and darkening of the surrounding external skin.

With the increasing prevalence of waxing and laser hair removal, and an increased openess in discussing intimate issues, women have become more aware of these changes which often affect their self confidence and intimate relations.  More and more women are looking at non-invasive ways to rejuvenate the area without resorting to surgery

What conditions can be treated with Carboxy Therapy?

Carboxy therapy is the infusion of carbon dioxide gas into an area.  Carbon dioxide is a safe and inert gas which displaces oxygen from the treatment area.  The body recognises an oxygen deficit in this localised area and responds by increasing blood flow, containing oxygen and nutrients, to the area.   This helps to rejuvenate a treatment area.

Carboxy therapy can be used throughout the genital area to help increase blood flow and stimulate long term rejuvenation.

Who is a good candidate for treatment?

Any woman who is conscious of  aging and decreased sensation in the genital area is a good candidate for carboxy therapy.  An examination of the area to exclude any contra-indications to carboxy therapy will be done prior to treatments.

What does a treatment entail?

The area to be treated will be cleaned with a mild antiseptic solution.  The carbon dioxide gas enters tissue through a tube that is connected to a tiny needle.  Multiple small needle pricks are made to allow entry of the carbon dioxide gas into the tissue.

Is there pain and downtime?

Small needle pricks are uncomfortable. A topical anaesthetic can be applied to the area before treatment if desired.  A mild burning sensation and feeling of mild increased pressure will be experienced as the gas enters tissue.  This dissipates almost immediately.  Small needle-prick bruises may occur which disappear in a few days.  There is no downtime after a treatment.

When can I expect to see results?

Results take time to become evident.  A course of 6 treatments at two weekly intervals is recommended.

What about confidentiality?

You can rest assured that any consultation or treatments that you have are completely confidential and carried out in a strictly professional manner.  We understand that any concerns that you may have may be embarassing to talk about, and are committed to providing you with a safe and comfortable environment where you are able to discuss these.
