Avoid surgery, scarring and potential complications with a non-surgical labiaplasty at The Rejuv Lab.
Enlarged labia majora can be a significant source of embarrassment and even pain for many women. Women who have large labia may find sexual intercourse to be too painful or have pain when sitting on a stool or riding a bike. Some women may have difficulty with using tampons and may even experience discomfort when walking or running. Until now surgical intervention has been the only option, until non-surgical labiaplasty.
WHY HAVE NON-SURGICAL LABIAPLASTY?
Femimine Rejuvenation (non-surgical labiaplasty) has rapidly increased in popularity for the management of functional and aesthetic problems associated with prominent labia. Women choose to have labiaplasty for a variety of reasons; including aesthetic purposes (about 33%), functional impairment (ie, pain, discomfort, difficulty maintaining hygiene) (about 33%), and a combination of both.
There are a number of surgical techniques which can be used to treat labial hypertrophy (ie, trim technique wedge technique, etc). All operations carry their inherent advantages and disadvantages, and there is little evidence to guide which is best for a given deformity.
Potential complications of surgical labiaplasty include scarring, irregular edges, over-resection, wound dehiscence, narrowed vaginal opening, pain, paresthesia, dryness, and asymmetry.
The reduction of the labia has both aesthetic and functional benefits. Many women report less discomfort wearing certain items of clothing and also during sexual intercourse.
WHAT IS THE ALTERNATIVE TO SURGICAL LABIAPLASTY?
Any procedure that does not involve incisions, scars or general anaesthesia is always seen as being very attractive for patients as there is no downtime or recovery period.
For many women, this means they can return to their normal activities of daily living very quickly compared with having a surgical labiaplasty procedure.
It is important to be aware that despite there being a very large number of treatments that are claimed to be non-surgical labiaplasty, none of these treatments can produce results identical to surgery - however, Feminine Rejuvenation at The Rejuv Lab will give results to improve the areas of concern. a labiaplasty procedure.
PlasmaLIFT is a revolutionary NEW medical grade, non-surgical treatment, giving you surgical like results without the need for surgery.
Plasma can be used for wrinkle smoothing and the reduction of excess skin and is often used on the following areas:
* eyelid/hood tightening and reduction (blephoraplasty)
* smokers lines
* marionette lines
* crows feet
* frown lines
* neck lines
* stretch marks
* nasolabial folds
* cosmetic tattoo removal
* feminine rejuvenation - labia majora tightening
- anywhere wrinkled and loose that you would like smoothed or tightened!
This innovative technology utilises plasma - formed through ionisation of atmospheric gasses - to stimulate instant contraction and tightening of skin fibres. This technology does not use a scalpel or laser to remove excess skin, thereby avoiding the complications associated with surgical procedures.
The treatment is performed through minute spots made with a pen type device at a certain distance one from the other, to stimulate instant contraction and tightening of skin fibres.
Results can be seen immediately but continue to improve over 6-8 weeks. Results can be cumulative and in some instances, 2 or 3 treatments may be required to deliver optimal results.
Treatment time can be 30-60 minutes, with results seen instantly - although the best appearance is seen after 6-8 weeks following full healing process.
HOW DOES PLASMALIFT WORK?
The Rejuv Lab offers you the most advanced medical grade, computerised Plasma technology in the world. You can trust you are in the safest and most skilled hands with our TGA approved Plasma device and expertly trained Anti-Ageing Specialists.
The plasma device converts electrical energy into an electrostatic energy which is then transmitted to the probe. At about 1mm from the skin, oxygen and nitrogen are mixed and the electrostatic energy produces an arc of plasma which is discharged on the surface of the skin. The excess skin is sublimated causing an immediate contraction of the skin surface and a thermal disruption in the dermis.
This controlled trauma causes an inflammatory response, resulting in tiny carbon crusts which look like freckles, and fall off after 4-7 days - leaving tightened, fresh and rejuvenated skin.
Another important factor of this treatment is the release of Growth Factors, which send a chemical message to the skin, instructing collagen strands to lay down.
Increased levels of Type 3 Collagen continue to occur post-treatment and the fibroblast cells continue to produce new collagen for weeks and months after the treatment.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED WITH PLASMALIFT?
PlasmaLIFT can treat a variety of areas on the face and body, and you may choose to treat more than one area in an appointment.
It is recommended to treat a maximum of 2-3 areas per appointment.

HOW DO I PREPARE FOR MY PLASMALIFT TREATMENT?
- It is a requirement by law that you bring your own numbing cream to your treatment. Order your numbing cream NOW from your pharmacist or compounding pharmacy, and bring it to your appointment.
- Complete your consultation form PRIOR to the day of your treatment. This will be emailed/sms'd to you in advance.
- If you wish on the day of your treatment and the following day, you may take a non-drowsy anti-histamine tablet. This will help to reduce swelling.
- Do not have injectables in the 2 weeks prior to your treatment, or 2 weeks after.
- Avoid alcohol the day before and on the day of treatment.
- Ensure you arrive 15 minutes prior to your treatment to complete your treatment forms and for application of your numbing cream.
- Your specialist will discuss with you after-care guidelines thoroughly at your appointment.
You must ONLY use aftercare as prescribed by your specialist post treatment. This includes the Soothe treatment balm (not included in price of treatment).
- Avoid alcohol for 24 hours post-treatment.
Ice packs may be used to aid in the cooling of treated areas.
- Do not touch the treated area.
- Do not pick or scratch at the crusts on your skin.
Some people feel some heat-related discomfort during the treatment. This discomfort is usually temporary during the procedure and localized within the treatment area.
Plasma treatments will cause varying degrees of redness and swelling in the treatment area. These common side effects vary in severity and duration from patient to patient.
Itching can sometimes occur as part of the normal wound healing process or may occur as part of infection, poor wound healing or contact dermatitis.
A flare-up of acne or formation of milia, tiny white bumps or small cysts on the skin, may occur. These symptoms usually resolve completely. Although not necessary, on occasion a series of prophylaxis antibiotics may be prescribed by your Doctor.
During the healing phase, the treated area may appear to be darker. This is called PIH, post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. PIH occurs as a part of the normal skin reaction to injury. This pigmentation usually fades in 3 to 6 months.
In some patients who experience pigment changes, the treated area loses pigmentation and becomes a lighter color than the surrounding skin. This type of reaction can sometimes be permanent.
PlasmaLIFT may cause pin point bleeding and/or oozing. Crusting or scabbing may form after the drying of clear fluid or blood. These reactions are rare and should be reported to the clinic for additional post care instructions.
Heating in the upper layers of the skin may occasionally cause blisters or burns and subsequent scab formation.. The blisters usually disappear within 2-4 days. A scab may be present after a blister forms, but typically will disappear during the natural wound healing process of the skin.
Scarring is a possibility due to the disruption to the skin’s surface and/or abnormal healing. Scars, which can be permanent, may be raised or depressed, and scarring could lead to loss of pigment or hypo-pigmentation in the scarred area.
It is very important to be consistent with sun protection. For your safety you should avoid sunbathing and solariums for at least 3 months, as hyper or hypo-pigmentation can occur.
Enjoy your fresh, new, rejuvenated and tighten skin!
