Childbirth and aging can have major impacts on the vagina. There has recently been much focus on the appearance of the vulva and more specifically, the labia minora and labia majora. The precise term for reduction of the labia minora and/or labia majora is labiaplasty. The demand for labiaplasty has increased tremendously over the years.

Radiesse is a dermal filler that is used to treat moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles. It also helps to correct facial volume loss due to the natural aging process. Apart from that, Radiesse is able to stimulate the collagen regeneration, helping to naturally heal the skin. As a result, signs of aging are significantly reduced. More recently, Radiesse has been approved by the FDA for hand augmentation. Radiesse is also ideal for augmenting the chin, nose, and lips.
How does Radiesse work?

At the same time, it fills out folds and wrinkles for dramatically younger looking skin. More importantly, Radiesse exerts its effects gradually to promote the body’s collagen synthesis, helping to replenish the lost collagen in the skin. The biodegradable microspheres will eventually be metabolized by th ...
