At Cotswold and County, we pride ourselves in giving holistic care to our clients, which extends beyond just facial treatments.
Our aim is to provide care and treatment specific aspects of women’s intimate health, to aid confidence and medical repair.
Focussing largely on womens health and the menopause, we have extended our treatment portfolio to include vaginal rejuvenation
During ageing and particularly the menopausal period, the vagina can become very dry and sore, causing discomfort generally and leading to aggravation, discomfort during sex and loss of libido.
Vaginal Rejuvenation & female intimate health
DESIRIAL® was created to restore hydration, elasticity, tonicity and sensitivity to the vulvo-vaginal area. This hyaluronic acid gel is directly injected into the tissues that need it. It contributes to reducing dehydration in the vaginal mucosa and strengthens the quality of the tissues.
Reinforcement of the Labia Majora’s protective function through volume augmentation
Hypotrophy, atrophy of the labia majora (volume loss)
Improvement to the aesthetic appearance of the vulvo-vaginal area
DESIRIAL® PLUS is a more elastic gel which is capable of remodelling the outer lips (Labia Majora) after volume loss (atrophy)3. As well as an improvement from an aesthetic point of view2, the inner lips (Labia Minora) are better protected indirectly4.
Menopause is a leading topic of conversation recently and following extensive studying in this field, we have made the important decision to include menopause support. We aim to hold regular menopause groups for women who require further advice and support during the menopausal transitional period.
what is menopause?
Menopause is when a woman stops having periods. Menopause means ‘the last menstrual period’. It’s not only those who identify as women who will experience menopause. Some transgender men, non-binary people and intersex people or people with variations in sex characteristics may also experience menopause.
Menopause is a natural event and transition that women experience, however, the timing and symptoms are different for everyone. You can look at your family history to get an idea of when you might go through it. It’s likely to be a similar age to when your mother or older sisters started theirs. Menopause can also occur due to certain surgeries or cancer treatments. This can sometimes cause symptoms to be more sudden and in some cases more severe.
Perimenopause is the time from the start of menopausal symptoms until after a woman has experienced her last period. Periods will usually start to become less frequent over a few months or years before they stop altogether. They might be more irregular and become heavier or lighter. For some women, they can stop suddenly.
Postmenopause is the time after a woman experiences her last period. A woman is said to be postmenopausal when she has not had a period for 12 months.
Perimenopause and menopause are a natural part of a woman’s life course and usually occur between the ages 45 and 55 years of age, as a woman’s oestrogen levels drop (although it can start earlier). In the UK, the average age for a woman to reach menopause is 51.
Life doesn’t have to be put on hold because
There’s a lot that can be done to help manage symptoms, including making healthy lifestyle choices, trying different treatments and seeking support from healthcare professionals.
