Is Vaginal Botox Really A Thing, and Why Would You Want It?
Botox in your vagina! Sounds really strange, right? Well, not until you learn just how much vaginal botox has changed many women’s lives. And the lives of their partners.
Many women looking for vaginal tightening and rejuvenation procedures consider getting Vaginal Botox. But, it’s important to note that using the Botox procedure is essentially the opposite of vaginal tightening. Botox injected into the pelvic floor muscles or vagina can help relax the tissue and eliminate the discomfort associated with penetration. This procedure is suitable for those women who have muscles that contract excessively during intercourse.
BHRC does not offer vaginal Botox but we do offer vaginal rejuvenation using Exilis Ultra.
While there are still no clear standards or professional guidelines on administering vaginal botox, studies have shown the procedure can positively impact on your health and lifestyle.
So exactly why would anyone want it and what problems does it solve?
Understanding Botox for Female Sexual Dysfunction
Vaginal Botox is one of the solutions for Female Sexual Dysfunction (FSD). According to WebMD, close to 43% of women may suffer from this condition at some time in their lives. And, the result is pain and the inability to have satisfactory intercourse. In younger women, it can also be the cause for the inability to conceive.
Female Sexual Dysfunction can be of two kinds:
- FSD where the walls of the vagina or pelvic muscles contract and make it impossible to have penetrative intercourse. Botox in the vagina or pelvic floor muscles can relax the tissues to a point where normal functioning is possible again. It is advisable that you get the treatment from a qualified OB-GYN who has the necessary training to perform the procedure.
- FSD where the walls of the vagina become too lax due to aging or multiple natural deliveries. In this case, women can opt for the Exilis Ultra Vaginal Rejuvenation method that can repair the laxity of the inner vaginal walls and make it possible to have satisfactory intercourse again. Such procedures can also repair the external appearance of the genitalia to restore confidence and self-esteem.
Common Causes of Female Sexual Dysfunction and Best Solutions
Vaginal Botox For Vaginismus
Vaginismus can range from mildly discomforting to extremely painful. It’s a condition where the vaginal muscles spasm or squeeze up whenever you try to insert anything including tampons or getting a pelvic exam. Often, painful penetrative sex is the first sign that a woman has vaginismus.
Doctors normally prescribe pain medication and advise you to try progressive desensitization exercise such as Kegels. You may also receive recommendations like relaxation techniques, getting couples counseling, and exploring the possibility of psychological reasons like say, trauma in the past.
Vaginal botox offers an easier way to desensitize, with faster and lasting results. Vaginal botox for vaginismus is safe, simple, and gives immediate results. And the vaginal tension that causes the spasmodic effects can heal completely over time.
Vaginal Botox For Endometriosis
Do you have the following symptoms:
- Painful vaginal penetration whether during intercourse or when using tampons?
- Cramping during intercourse
- Pain during pelvic examinations
- Pain and cramping during urination or bowel movements?
If you answered yes to any or all of these, then you better get checked for Endometriosis. Endometriosis is when tissue that normally lines up the uterus grows outside the uterus. The areas affected most include the ovaries, fallopian tubes, pelvic cavity, bowels, bladder, cervix, and the vagina.
Gynecologists traditionally recommend medication and surgery for the pain. Recent studies show that vaginal botox can deliver the same results at a fraction of the cost and with a shorter recovery period.
Interstitial Cystitis is a chronic condition also known as the painful bladder syndrome. It causes bladder pressure, pelvic pain, and general discomfort. Having the condition makes you feel like you have a painfully full bladder and need to go right away. But, when you get to the bathroom, you pass only a few droplets.
Vaginal botox has been shown to relieve the pressure and the pain, though there currently isn’t any cure for the condition.
Pelvic Floor Dysfunction
The pelvic floor is a group of strong muscles that hold and support your pelvic organs in place. These organs include your bladder, bowels, rectum, and uterus. By relaxing and contracting these muscles, you control your sexual functions, and bowel and bladder movements.
Pelvic floor dysfunction is a condition where the muscles contract, but do not relax. As a result, you may notice issues like:
- Pain in the lower back and pelvic region including the genitalia and rectum
- Constant urge to urinate, but the inability to initiate a stream
- Difficulty in bowel movements and constipation
- Inability or discomfort in having sexual intercourse
Getting the pelvic floor Botox procedure can help the muscles relax so that you get relief from the pain and ability to perform normal bodily functions including intercourse.
Vaginal Botox as a Cosmetic Procedure
Vaginal Botox has also earned the name “labia puffing”. Botox in the genital area and other dermal fillers have been used to boost the volume of the labia majora. The cosmetic procedure is said to also improve elasticity, remove wrinkles and creases, and boost libido.
A woman’s labia majora naturally plumps up when she’s aroused due to increased blood flow. However, because of aging and childbearing, the effect fades out with time. This makes the vagina look aged and to some, unattractive. Labia puffing makes your vagina look younger and boosts your self-confidence.
