Labia filler

post care instructions and FAQs

Labia filler, sometimes referred to as labial puffing, is a procedure that adds volume to the labia majora for a youthful appearance. The natural aging process causes collagen production to slow down throughout the body. In effect, you may begin to notice wrinkled and drooping skin. While typically noticed on the face first, the vagina is no exception. The natural process of aging, pregnancy, childbirth, and menopause can all cause volume loss in the labia.
Hyaluronic acid fillers can be injected for an instant improvement in the size and fullness of the labia. It is common for labia augmentation to be combined with other vaginal rejuvenation treatments PRP injections for sexual wellness and satisfaction. During this simple procedure, a topical numbing cream may be applied to the labia for patient comfort. Dermal filler will be injected into the labia majora. Immediately following treatment, results will be noticeable and patients will be able to resume all normal activity.
The goal of labia augmentation is to create a more youthful, and full appearance of the labia majora.

What are the possible side effects?

Swelling: depends on multiple factors and just because you didn’t swell one time, does not mean you will not swell the next time you do a treatment. Sometimes an anti-swelling medication will be given after your injection.

Bruising: While we rarely see them in patients, some people are predisposed to bruise. We suggest that you avoid fish oil, alcohol, and ibuprofen products to minimize the chance of bruising. Bruises can last 2-3 days or up to 2 weeks depending on type and location. Arnica pills can be purchased during your visit that can help heal bruises more quickly.

When will I see my final results?

With filler, the immediate results are a view into the future but aren't the final results. If you like your filler right away, you’ll love it in two weeks as the work begins to settle. The swelling you notice will go down and you'll quickly see your longterm results. While you may have some soreness initially, the area will start to feel and look more natural in no time!

What if I want more?

We offer complementary consultations 2 weeks after your filler appointment. We can discuss your plans for further treatments then!

The Basics
