Whether it’s a Real Housewife going in for vaginal rejuvenation, (Link NSFW) or someone in your spin class discussing labiaplasty (NSFW), vaginal concerns is top of mind for many women, especially moms.

Whether you’ve had children or just want a bit of maintenance, there are dozens of vaginal rejuvenation options out there. The best part? Several do not require surgery.

Here are seven treatments that address top vaginal concerns. Warning: Most of the links in this post are NSFW, so this is probably best read on a private device.



What it is: Vaginoplasty tightens the vaginal wall. This may be due to childbirth and can contribute to sexual dysfunction.

How it works: The separated muscles are brought together and the extra skin from the back of the vagina is removed. If aesthetics are a concern, external skin can be removed, too. It is typically done under general anesthesia, but some may opt for local anesthesia.

Side effects: Infection, bleeding and pain are the most common complications.

The G-Shot

What it is: A shot of hyaluronic acid targeted at the G-spot. The shot increases vaginal sensitivity leading to better orgasms.

How it works: After the patient does a self-exam to locate the spot that feels best to touch, the doctor administers a numbing shot and then the G-shot. The treatment lasts four to six months.

Side effects: Rare, but infection or issues with urinary retention may occur.

Vagina facial

What it is: The vagina facial, or the “vajacial,” is exactly what it sounds like — a facial for your vaginal area. The vajacial is said to aid in the prevention of ingrown hairs and acne, soothe the skin and treat discoloration.

How it works: A vajacial is a 20-minute treatment meant to be done 10 to 20 days after a bikini wax. After removing any ingrown hairs, a “V mask” is applied to the vaginal area. Then a high-frequency wand is used to enhance blood circulation and allow the mask to penetrate the skin more deeply.

Side effects: None reported to date.

What it is: A surgical procedure to remove excess tissue from the labia. This may be due to cosmetic reasons or physical discomfort.

How it works: Can be done under local anesthesia, local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia. Local anesthesia or local with sedation are the preferred methods. There are two methods for a labiaplasty: The trim method, which creates one, long incision along the edge of the labia, or the wedge method, which produces a shorter scar. The wedge method also tightens the entire length of the labia minora and is a more complex procedure.

Side effects: Risks may include asymmetry, pigmentation or sensory changes. Significant sensation changes are rare.

Editor’s note: The FDA issued a warning about vaginal rejuvenation devices on July 30, 2018. The concern is primarily around misleading marketing of the treatment, but the FDA also cites some reports of patient risks. Overall, it’s important to take this treatment seriously and do your research.
