Vaginal Problems – Common Causes and Simple Solutions 

Did you know that over 80% of women experience vaginal problems at some stage in their life? While some of those women will take action and make an appointment to speak to someone about their discomfort, many women feel embarrassed or ashamed. Instead, they ignore any problems or try home remedies that may not fully resolve things.

At Elite Aesthetics, we are proud of the many treatments that we offer to help women regain confidence and control. So, if you’re suffering from discomfort or pain ‘down there’, read on to see how we can help…

What Causes Vaginal Problems?

There are many reasons for your vaginal problems, here we’re going to list some of the most common causes, however, this is not an exhaustive list. During your consultation, we will be able to get a better understanding of your personal circumstances and tailor a solution that suits you. 


The effects of ageing on your body are from top to toe; from greying hair to more painful joints. But one area that doesn’t get talked about much is your vagina. Ageing has a significant impact on your labia, vulva and surrounding tissue. 


Anyone who has given birth already knows the strain your vagina goes through. Following birth, it may take up to a year for your vagina to feel ‘normal’ again, but there’s a chance that there are changes that won’t revert. Scarring, weaker muscles and a change in shape are just some of the differences you may notice.

Medication and Medical Treatment

The stress of a medical condition can be added to by the side-effects of any medication, treatment or surgery you require. From chemotherapy to HRT, there are lots of triggers for vaginal problems.

What Are The Symptoms Of Vaginal Problems

Vaginal problems can affect you in many different ways. The most common symptoms are; 

  • Muscle weakening
  • Laxity – loss of fullness in the labia majora and minora
  • Vaginal Atrophy (thinning of the vaginal wall)
  • Loss of Libido
  • Scarring from surgery
  • Weak pelvic floor muscles

Vaginal Problems: What’s The Solution?

Vaginal problems can affect women in so many ways, but fortunately, at Elite Aesthetics, we have a variety of treatment options to help you feel more confident, comfortable and capable. 

Here are our most popular sexual wellbeing treatments;  

The O Shot

The O Shot is one of the most exciting treatments we offer for sexual rejuvenation. For years there has been a variety of solutions to male impotence, but now, with The O Shot, we can address women’s sexual problems too.

Hormone fluctuations can have a negative impact on your desire and libido, as well as your ability to climax. Not only is this frustrating, it can also knock your confidence.

The O Shot is a non-surgical treatment that harnesses the power of your body’s own resources to increase sexual desire and heighten sensation during intimate activity. 

The treatment is simple and is performed in under an hour. A sample of your blood is drawn, just like in a blood test, and then it’s spun in a machine that separates the red blood cells from the plasma and platelets. This is what’s known as PRP (platelet-rich plasma) and it’s injected into your clitoris and vaginal wall. 

The platelets release growth factors that help to stimulate new cells, making the area more sensitive when aroused. Over 85% of patients have reported a dramatic difference in the strength of their orgasms as a result of The O Shot. You can read one account from Cosmo’s Sophie Blackman here.

The O Shot can help with; 

  • Improving your sexual desire
  • The sensitivity of your clitoris 
  • Your orgasm frequency
  • Your orgasm intensity
  • Better vaginal lubrication
  • Stress incontinence

Ultra Femme

Ultra Femme 360 is a new approach to women’s sexual health. The revolutionary device provides a non-surgical solution to vaginal problems such as vaginal laxity, stress incontinence or vaginal atrophy.

The Ultra Femme 360 device uses gentle heat to stimulate collagen production and blood flow to the vaginal area. The result is a plumper, more sensitive vagina with greater muscle control. 

Since the Ultra Femme 360 is able to treat so many vaginal problems without the need for invasive and personal surgery, it has risen in popularity. Women who have previously opted to live with their condition now have a solution that is both affordable and effective. 

So, what can you expect during your treatment? Firstly, you will be asked to relax in a discreet, private room in our clinic. Our clinicians are highly qualified professionals who are ready to help alleviate any anxieties you may have about such a personal treatment.

While you relax, the disposable tip of the device is inserted into the vaginal canal, where it emits radiofrequency waves. These waves penetrate into the surrounding tissue, disrupting your old collagen fibres and triggering a healing response. Patients who have had the Ultra Femme 360 treatment describe the feeling as a gentle relaxing warmth. 

Dr Shirin, owner and medical director at Elite Aesthetics, is the UK’s ambassador for Ultra Femme so you know you’re in the best place to receive your treatment. You can see Dr Shirin performing the treatment on ITV’s This Morning here.

Labial Puff

The latest innovation in women’s sexual rejuvenation, the labial puff is an exciting treatment that helps resolve vaginal problems such as labial laxity. 

The loss of collagen in the labia can result in loose, sagging labial tissue which not only affects your body confidence but also causes physical issues like vaginal dryness, discomfort when sitting or during sex, as well as a loss of libido.

The Labial Puff helps to restore volume to your labia majora using a dermal filler. This soft, injectable gel is made from hyaluronic acid, a water-binding molecule that’s already found in your body. The filler is gently injected into your labia, where it plumps and tightens your loose skin. The results are immediate and there is no recovery time (just a couple of weeks abstaining from sexual intercourse and vigorous activity, like mountain biking or horse riding).

Had a consultation with Elite yesterday, I must say I was a bit nervous, but Dr Shirin was so friendly and helpful.
I was given lots of advice and was given treatment options that were within my budget.
A few weeks after the P Shot I've really started to see a difference and have gained my confidence back.

Thank You!



Elite is an outstanding professional clinic with high standard treatments. All the staff members are friendly and offer you honest opinions when it comes to products and treatments. This is a welcoming clinic that I can 100% recommend. Treatments are spoken through and explained in detail, also aftercare. I have been going nearly a year now and am happy with all the treatments I’ve had, wouldn't go anywhere else. The Bocox treatment started to work within a few days, which I was surprised about. So glad I went to Elite for treatment.



Thank you Dr Shirin, the O Shot has really helped me with my Lichen Sclerosus. I'd heard about the treatment on the LS Facebook Groups and message a few people that had treatment with Dr Shirin. I was like many in the group who had run out of treatment options and using creams on a daily basis. I have to say a few months after treatment, I can see a real positive change and I'm hoping my LS will continue to improve. Dr Shirin did say that I might have to have a second treatment given how severe my case is.




A great discovery in the neighbourhood ! There is no need to go up to London for a beauty treatment of any kind. You'll find a whole range of different treatments suiting all age groups and concerns. Welcoming, reassuring, friendly, professional, high tech. I shall be back for more. I love the results of the Thread Lift I had.


Great service as always, skin is glowing very happy


Very happy with the result of my recent visit. For sure will continue with Elite in future

Hi, Alex here,Just had my Lichen treatment today with Dr Shirin,The whole team at elite are very friendly, comforting and understanding, and did everything they could to give me a wonderful and welcoming experience. They are all so kind, friendly and knowledgeable, world experts at what they do. I am lucky to have them near London. They are also super responsive on the phone and email, so I know they care about thier patients, and I'm very well taken care of, (as with other clinics I have been to, its often difficult to get them to respond to questions), but this clinic is the most responsive I have ever seen!This is a beautiful and wonderful place and I highly recommend it, and I will be recommending it to all my friends as well. They definitely deserve the super high reviews they are getting, so I'm happy to add another one! A Big thank you from me and my family for all you have done for us during this journey!

Yesterday I had a 'body sculpt' session, to help lymphatic drainage. I was zipped into a suit up to my waist. This massaged and lightly squeezed my feet, ankles, calves, thighs and abdomen. I was breathing oxygen rich air via nasal tubes. It was very relaxing and I slept really well last night. Thank you Elite Aesthetics.
