At Anti-Aging Art – a medical aesthetic and holistic wellness centre owned by Dr Reza Mia in Houghton, Johannesburg – the newest lasers and radio-frequency devices and injectables promise tightness and smoothness, and they’re not focused on crow’s feet. The new frontier for plastic surgery is between your legs. However, vaginal rejuvenation, the V-Shot for women and the P-Shot for men are as mysterious as they are enticing.
Nips, tucks, and designer vaginas!
For many generations, vaginal health has been considered taboo and procedures for female genitalia weren’t available. But if celebrities have taught us anything in recent years, it’s that beautification treatments below the belt aren’t off-limits. Regardless of the exact reason behind the ‘designer vagina’ trend, vaginal health and plastic surgery in and around the vagina are getting more attention than ever before, says Dr Reza Mia.
Exilis Ultra Femme vaginal rejuvenation – a pain-free, mini facelift for the vagina available at Anti-Aging Art – treats vaginal relaxation, a common condition associated with childbirth and ageing. The one-of-a-kind technology provides complete vaginal rejuvenation, including labial remodelling and vaginal tightening with a single device.
According to Dr Reza Mia, Exilis Ultra Femme is becoming an increasingly popular procedure for women to have following childbirth to repair and tighten the vaginal muscles and tissues that were overstretched or damaged. It may also be an effective treatment option if you’re in your perimenopause or postmenopausal phases of life – menopause leads to a drop in oestrogen levels, and vaginal tissues naturally thin out.
During the session, a vaginal probe is inserted into the vaginal canal. The therapist then moves the tip inward and outward while the wand heats up to a considerable temperature. In turn, the heat elevates your internal tissues – the increased blood flow plays a crucial role in tightening the tissue, along with the radio frequency. You’ll feel no pain or irritation; only a warming sensation. In less than 15 minutes, you’re done!
While Exilis Ultra Femme vaginal rejuvenation is mostly an aesthetic procedure, it can also be functional as it involves tightening the inner and outer muscles and structures of the vagina, enhancing vaginal muscle tone, strength and control. Exilis Ultra Femme is designed to treat health concerns such as bladder problems, bowel problems, weakened pelvic muscles, pelvic floor disorder, tears in vaginal connective tissues and vaginal disposition after a hysterectomy. It also improves your comfort as a woman by correcting large, uneven, hanging or wrinkled labia minora; pain and discomfort caused by physical exertion and sports; decreased sensation during sexual intercourse; multi-directional urine streams and stress incontinence.
Best of all, Exilis Ultra Femme vaginal rejuvenation at Anti-Aging Art is a long-lasting investment. Although it’s normal that all parts of the body relax as we age, the vaginal area should never return to the degree of relaxation experienced prior to the procedure unless another vaginal childbirth occurs. Aesthetic therapist Lerato has experience in performing Exilis Ultra Femme on a weekly basis. After an initial assessment, she’ll advise how many treatment sessions you need based on the severity of your symptoms. In general, Lerato recommends one session every week for 3 to 6 weeks.
Hit me with your best V-Shot and P-Shot!
Of all the things you could do in a quest for better orgasms or harder and longer-lasting erections, getting platelet-rich plasma (PRP) sourced from your own blood injected directly into your vagina or penis may seem a little extreme. Still, that’s what the Diamond PRP V-Shot for women and P-Shot for men is – and both women and men are more than happy to give the non-invasive treatment a go, says Dr Reza Mia.
As Dr Reza Mia explains, the V-Shot and P-Shot use PRP to stimulate the growth of new cells in a woman’s vaginal walls and clitoris or specific areas of a man’s penis. The platelets, which the body utilises to naturally generate tissue, increase not only the number of cells but also collagen production and the formation of new blood vessels to further aid in tissue repair. For women, the benefits include greater pleasure and sensation, enhanced overall sexual function, enhanced ability to orgasm, a tighter and healthier vagina, reduced pain or discomfort during intercourse, increased lubrication and reduced incontinence. Men, on the other hand, will enjoy stronger, firmer erections, improved sexual stamina, increased penile length and girth, improvement in penile curvature, resolution of penile pain with erection and better blood flow to the penis.
For the Diamond PRP procedure, your blood goes through a centrifuge where platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is separated from platelet-poor plasma (PPP). The process involves drawing a small amount of blood from the arm and then transferring it to the centrifuge, where it spins for about 10 minutes. The PRP is then placed in a special glass vial with activator solutions to activate the platelets before it’s reinjected into the vagina or penis, which stimulates blood flow and makes it appear rejuvenated. This assures that the platelets are active and able to release growth factors when injected back into the skin.
Dr Reza Mia is confident that the in-office Diamond PRP treatments, which take about 20 minutes and can only be done by a certified doctor or nurse, will be the answer for women and men looking to boost less-than-satisfying sex life. He generally recommends a regularly scheduled annual treatment to maintain the results. However, some women and men will require secondary initial treatments to begin noticing results, which usually take place within 3 months after the first treatment.
