“Sexual confidence is about more than just sex.
It influences your entire life; if you can be confident in the bedroom,
you can be confident anywhere”
Each labia is as unique as a fingerprint, and many women experience discomfort, irritation, or a lack of confidence due to the size or shape of their labia. This is by no means rare and there are many ways to remedy the problem, however, for years societal pressures have prevented open discussion around female sexuality that would allow people to seek help.
Labiaplasty is a simple, near pain-free procedure performed to refine and contour the appearance of the labia or vaginal lips.
A labiaplasty is designed to change the size or shape of the labia, remove any unwanted dark skin, to reduce the length of the labia or to correct any vaginal asymmetry. It can increase pleasure during sex, reduce pain during sex and exercise, and increase your confidence in the bedroom.

THE FOUR STEPS OF LABIAPLASTY
Prior to surgery labia may be elongated, asymmetrical or enlarged, causing discomfort.
With the use of a laser any excess skin is gently removed to reshape and resize the labia.
After this, any necessary further reshaping is performed to ensure increased symmetry and improve aesthetic appearance.
Once completed the labia is symmetrical, aesthetically pleasing and any irritating or discomforting excess tissue has been removed.

Non-Surgical Laser Labia Tightening
Changes to the labia are no longer inherently surgical. Vaginal Laser Tightening is a safe and non-invasive procedure, designed to tighten the vaginal canal and reinstate strength and rejuvenated healthier vaginal wall and greater sexual satisfaction.
The treatment involves laser-induced thermal effects on the vaginal tissue, stimulating collagen remodelling and the synthesis of new collagen fibres.
It’s a 30 minutes pain-free procedure and as little as 2 treatments (4 weeks apart) are required. Unlike surgical intervention, this procedure carries no risks or complications and there is no downtime.
It’s a lunchtime procedure. You will leave immediately after the procedure and continue your daily routine. There may be some minimal sensitivity after the procedure and a transparent discharge for 2-3 days afterwards.
Sexual intercourse is not recommended for 1 week after the procedure. The treatment is popular following childbirth and is also a common treatment for stretching that results naturally as a result of ageing.
