AUTHENTIC INNOVATION FOR HEALTHY, INTIMATE WOMEN
Vaginal dryness is thought to affect one in six women
Vaginal or vulvar dryness can occur in women of all ages as an iatrogenic condition (eg as a result of isotretinoin, tricyclic antidepressants, psychotic drugs, etc.) or as a symptom accompanying menopause, especially when hormone replacement therapy is not used.
During menopause, estrogen production decreases, which leads to a decrease in fibroblast activity and results in progressive disappearance of the dermis and flattening of the skin-epidermal border.
The vaginal mucosa becomes dry (the vascularisation of the connective tissue is reduced, the tissue is less moisturized and thinner, as is the whole body skin.) The decrease in the amount of nutrients supplied to the glandular cells causes their disappearance and disruption of their functioning.
The skin loses its elasticity. Collagen and elastin fibers undergo degeneration and their number decreases, followed by a decrease in fibroblast activity, the production of type III collagen increases, while the production of collagen type I decreases.
This leads to symptoms such as dryness. Loss of elasticity, flaccidity and increased skin sensitivity. The decrease in estrogen concentration causes a gradual disappearance of the labia majora, accompanied by dry vulva.
HIGH QUALITY. STABILIZATION. LONG-TERM ACTION
Partial or complete disappearance of the labia majora is also a common complaint.
Its essence is the disappearance of the fatty lining of the labia majora (so-called Lipoatrophy), and the generalized process of atrophy within the skin tissue. This condition may be genetic or occur in the postmenopausal age as a symptom accompanying a very advanced stage of vaginal dryness.
In both cases, the labia becomes too small or disappear completely and is not adequately protect the vulva, causing itching and discomfort, significantly hindering the daily functioning of the patient. The labia play an important role in preventing vulvar scars, especially when dressing, wearing tight clothing or doing sports (horse riding, cycling).
The disappearance of the labia may occur earlier (on average, about 46 years old). In some patients the first symptoms are observed around 37 years of age (physical predisposition, premature menopause, lifestyle, etc.)
By injecting DESIRIAL® hyaluronate acid into the skin of the labia it improves its hydration, results in biological stimulation and stimulates the activity of fibroblasts, enabling the proper functioning of the female genital tissues.
How it's working?
Who is this treatment for?
For women around the menopause or in childbearing age who have had insufficient hydration of the vulva with or without concomitant irritation. For women around menopausal age, during menopause or in childbearing age with a tendency or symptom of moderate or severe partial or complete disappearance of the labia majora.
