Vaginal Rejuvenation With Dermal Fillers

Vaginal rejuvenation is a cosmetic treatment that uses dermal fillers to improve the appearance and function of the vulva. Dermal fillers inject into the skin of the vagina and vulva to restore volume, increase elasticity, and tighten sagging tissues. Dermal fillers can also use for labiaplasty (surgical reduction of excess labia tissue), clitoral hood reduction (excess tissue removal from overhanging clitoris), or other procedures such as buttock augmentation or breast enhancement surgery. Vaginal rejuvenation with dermal fillers can also reduce urinary incontinence by restoring strength in weakened muscles around the urethra, bladder sphincter, or pelvic floor joints due to childbirth (vaginal birth) or menopause

What is vaginal rejuvenation?

Vaginal rejuvenation is a cosmetic procedure that uses dermal fillers to restore the look and feel of the vagina. The results can last from three to six months before requiring a renewal or re-treatment.

Vaginal rejuvenation procedures use for a variety of reasons, including:

  • To improve vaginal tightness and looseness (looseness due to childbirth, menopause or aging)
  • To reduce vaginal dryness and other symptoms associated with menopause (vaginal atrophy)
  • To address urinary incontinence (also known as stress incontinence)

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, a substance that naturally occurs in our bodies and can be found in many foods. When injected into the skin, they add volume and smooth out wrinkles. But they can also use in other parts of the body, like under your eyes, on your lips and even on your hands.

They are also made from natural substances such as collagen or hyaluronic acid (HA). The most commonly used dermal filler is Restylane®, which contains HA. Dermal fillers also know as soft-tissue augmentation or soft-tissue augmentation products (STAPs).

How do dermal fillers work in vaginal rejuvenation?

The first thing to understand is that dermal fillers inject into the vagina. The filler will help increase the size and shape of your vagina, which can treat a variety of vaginal issues like dryness and pain. It may also use to treat vaginal laxity, prolapse (when pelvic organs fall out of place), and more.

Will my partner know I’m getting vaginal fillers?

No, your partner will not know you are getting vaginal fillers.

You can tell them if you want to.

If you do, let them know in a non-threatening way that it was for your own sexual pleasure and not theirs. They may surprise when they find out about the procedure but should be supportive of your decision if they care about you and your happiness.

Doesn’t vaginal filler only last a few months?

Yes, dermal fillers can last up to a year. The duration of results depends on the type of filler used, how much you use and your lifestyle habits (smoking and excessive alcohol consumption can both reduce the longevity of your treatment).

The two most common areas to inject with dermal fillers are the vagina or labia minora. If you have vaginal laxity (loose muscles) or vaginal atrophy (thinning skin), then dermal fillers injected into these areas will tighten them up. If you have dryness then injecting hyaluronic acid into these areas will moisturize them for longer lasting results.

How often will I need to get my vaginal fillers done?

How often you’ll need to get your vaginal fillers done depends on your needs and the results that you’d like to achieve. Some women may only need a single treatment session, while other women may require regular injections in order to maintain the look they want.

It’s important to see a doctor who has experience with dermal fillers so that they can assess your situation and recommend an appropriate treatment plan for you.

Does it hurt when the dermal fillers are injected into my vagina?

The amount of discomfort you might feel, if any, is minimal. In most cases, no anesthesia require and the discomfort is temporary. Most patients say they did not experience any pain. We may numb your area with a very small amount of a numbing cream prior to injection if you wish to make sure it is completely comfortable for you.

Which dermal fillers are most commonly used for vaginal rejuvenation?

There are many different types of dermal fillers available for vaginal rejuvenation. These include:

Hyaluronic acid (HA). One of the most common dermal fillers, hyaluronic acid is made from a naturally occurring substance found in your body and is used to restore volume and provide support to the soft tissue around your vagina. It’s made up of three parts: two monomers, which are linked together via a polymer chain. The polymer chains are what give HA its gel-like properties. They expand when mixed with water and create an interpenetrating network that binds water molecules together. This gives it excellent resorption properties as well as sustained release over time, allowing you to get a smooth look without needing daily application like some other fillers may need!

Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA). This substance is often used in breast augmentation procedures because it can be injected into the breast tissue itself. But it also works well on other parts of the body including those near your vagina (depending on how much swelling you desire). Unlike HA injections which only last about 6 months before needing another treatment. PMMA injections can last anywhere between 12 months up to five years depending on how much filler was used during your initial appointment!

Will I need an anesthesia for vaginal rejuvenation with dermal fillers?

You will receive local anesthesia during your procedure. Some patients may also give a sedative to relax them. If you are having a laser treatment, there is no need for surgery or general anesthesia. This can happen in the office without any interruption to your daily routine.

What are the advantages of vaginal rejuvenation with dermal fillers?

Reduced risk of infection. Dermal fillers have a lower risk of infection than other methods, such as surgery, which can lead to scarring.

No downtime. You’ll be able to return to your normal activities immediately after treatment, without needing to take time off work or school.

No scarring! In fact, there is no incision required with this procedure at all—your doctor will simply inject the filler into your vagina using a needle inserted through your vaginal opening (no need for a scalpel!). As far as anyone will know about it later on down the road. There’s only one way someone could ever find out that you had this treatment. If they were looking at your legs from behind while standing next to them in line at Starbucks and realized “hey waitasec–those aren’t my thighs.” Which would obviously be an awkward situation but probably less awkward than having sex with someone who has been “rejuvenated” by dermal fillers (not including myself).

Are there risks and complications from vaginal rejuvenation with dermal fillers?

The most common risks with dermal fillers are bruising, infection, and inflammation. These are usually mild and easily treated with home remedies or over-the-counter medication. The most serious risk is that the filler may migrate to other parts of the body, like your lungs or heart.


Vaginal rejuvenation is a safe and effective way to improve your sex life, but there are some risks and complications associated with it. The most common side effects of dermal fillers include bruising, swelling, tenderness and pain at the injection site. It’s important that you talk to your doctor about what kind of treatment they recommend based on your individual needs.
