Skincare for down there

Itching, stinging, dryness and soreness. Lots of us suffer dryness down under and yet very few of us mention it to anyone. It remains a silent condition that many women feel embarrassed to even talk about with their partners, not to mention doctors

Vaginal dryness is commonly experienced during the premenopausal and postmenopausal years, although it can occur at any age. Inadequate lubrication is often a sign of vaginal atrophy—the thinning and inflammation of the vaginal wall due to a reduction in oestrogen. And, as if the dryness wasn’t enough, the symptoms that come with it often include itching and stinging.

Thanks to its taboo status, unfortunately many of us go untreated and are unaware that there are effective solutions to the condition. We’ve rounded up an expert-endorsed selection of treatments to help you navigate your options and perhaps even kickstart a conversation with your doctor.
 
AQ Vaginal Rejuvenation System 
AQ skin solutions has harnessed cutting edge methods of producing human growth factors to create skin care products that rejuvenate cell production. Growth factor (GF) technology refers to a group of specialised hormones, which increase the production of cells, blood vessels, collagen and elastin.

GF technology has been proven to help people achieve a more youthful and vibrant look, from wrinkle reduction to fuller hair and now it’s being put to good use with vaginal rejuvenation.  The specially formulated serum can help to improve vaginal function, including elasticity of vaginal walls and sexual arousal and intercourse.

Julva cream
Julva is a specially formulated and carefully researched cream for your delicate area, which utilises the naturally occurring hormone dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) to address the symptoms of vaginal atrophy. Like testosterone, DHEA is an androgen. Androgens are a group of hormones, important to the health of skin, muscle, and bone and play a role in maintaining libido.

Vaginal probiotics 
Widely known for helping to balance the bacteria in your gut, probiotics can also play a beneficial role in combatting vaginal atrophy and in protecting against infections, such as thrush and bacterial vaginosis. Researchers have discovered that the bacterial makeup of the vagina varies according to a woman’s reproductive stage, suggesting that certain probiotics could be helpful for tackling vaginal atrophy.

Lactobacillus and bifidobacterium are the probiotics most commonly used for vaginal health and can be taken orally or as a suppository.

Juliet Laser Vagina Rejuvenation

The Juliet laser treatment is fast, safe and painless laser treatment, which utilises the beneficial effects of light on the skin to stimulate the vaginal membrane and produce new collagen. Unpleasant symptoms such as itching, irritation, poor lubrication, dryness and pain during sex can be significantly improved and put and end to without any downtime or anesthesia.
