Looking into vaginal rejuvenation is as normal as any other treatment to help keep your body looking its best as you get older, as all parts of our body alter with age. Childbirth and menopause are two of the most common causes of vaginal changes, which can leave you feeling uncomfortable and self-conscious in your own skin.
At Harley Skin and Laser, we understand this may well be a sensitive subject, and we work with you to fully understand your needs.
Vaginal rejuvenation is becoming a more popular treatment. However, many are worried about the pain and downtime of surgical procedures such as Vaginoplasty or Labiaplasty.
The Intima is a pain−free non−surgical procedure that can truly invigorate the vaginal area. The award−winning radiofrequency technology, Intima lumps and firms the vagina’s inner and outer labia.
With vaginal rejuvenation, you can see the results from the first treatment, with a more youthful look restored. The procedure not only improves confidence but often increases sexual satisfaction.
Due to heating at lower temperatures compared to ablative lasers, there is minimal risk of infection and it is, therefore, a safer alternative to other treatments.

During Your Treatment
It is important that you drink lots of water on the day before, the day of, and following your vaginal rejuvenation treatment. When you are sufficiently hydrated, delivery of the radiofrequency energy is enhanced. Not only does this make the treatment more comfortable, it also aids lymphatic drainage for superlative results. During the treatment, a sterile disposable grounding pad will be applied to your back. This is attached to the contouring machine to effectively transfer energy from the machine to the target tissue.

Remodelling or rejuvenation of the outer labia (lips) of the vagina – vaginal contouring. Aimed at targeting labial deflation (volume loss) or laxity, treating larger outer labia and hypertrophy of the labia minora (abnormal size of the inner lips pushing through the outer lips). Can also be used for perineal loosening caused by episiotomy during childbirth.
Vaginal contouring is not targeted at increasing the tightness of the vaginal canal nor improving sexual function.
Results take up to 6 months to develop fully. The longevity of those results will depend on the inpidual and the specific labial concern treated. Maintenance treatments are likely to be recommended periodically to maintain a good result.
It is possible that future childbirth may affect the result achieved with the Protégé Intima treatment, by causing the labia to stretch.
As long as you are generally healthy and don’t have any chronic illnesses, skin diseases or infections in the area treated, there are few medical reasons why you should not undergo this treatment.
It is advised not to have the procedure done whilst you have having your monthly period (menstruation).
If you are concerned that you have a sexually transmitted disease (STD) then this should be checked, diagnosed and treated, if required, before having a BTL Protégé Intima treatment.
You may well be asked to provide results from a PAP smear test that you have had within the last 12 months, or have a smear test before treatment, if it has been several years since you were last tested. The results of this will be used to evaluate suitability for treatment in case of any abnormal results.
Pregnant women are advised to wait to until after the birth of their child before having treatment. Breast feeding women are also not suitable for treatment.
A treatment programme of four to six sessions, spaces a week to two weeks apart, is usually recommended for BTL Protégé Intima, in order to achieve the best results. Maintenance treatments may be recommended annually.
The cost of BTL Protégé Intima treatment depends on the practitioner treating and the number of treatment sessions required. On average a course of four treatments will cost around £1,000 – £1,200. Top-up or maintenance treatments will cost £150+.
According to trial results from the manufacturers, 80% of tested subjects noted an improvement in appearance of the area as moderate or excellent; the remaining 20% noted only a mild or no improvement. 60% reported an improvement in sexual satisfaction of moderate or excellent and the remaining 40% mild improvement.
