Genital Whitening

The female external genitalia, the perianal region, the inner thighs are not exposed to the sun, however they can be stained for different reasons:

  • The skin phototype of the patient has an important role. Patients with dark skin have a greater chance of staining.
  • Birth control hormones increase the chances of hyperpigmentation.
  • Pregnancy too.
  • Diseases with hormonal disorder or polycystic ovarian disease.
  • Waxing with hot wax or epilation with intense pulsed light.
  • Excess weight can promote hyperpigmentation due to increased friction.
  • Tight clothing can also produce stains by friction, rubbing.
  • The passage of time favors hyperpigmentation due to the sum of these factors.

The darkening of the labia majora, the perigenital area, pubis and perianal region affects women psychologically and can cause a loss of confidence and self-esteem when having sex or simply wearing a bathing suit.

Lichen sclerosus or scleroatrophic

It is a rare disease that creates white spots on the skin, which becomes thinner than normal. It is a chronic inflammatory skin pathology, which mainly affects women in the vulvar and perianal area. In the case of men, it is usually located in the foreskin and the glans. The age of onset is variable and may appear at any time (including children's age), although it is more frequent in older ages.

What areas does it affect?

Lichen sclerosus can affect the skin of any part of the body. However, it most often attacks the vulva, the foreskin of the penis, or the skin around the anus. It is not a contagious disease.

Causes

Its cause is not well known, it may be due to an overactive immune system or previous damage to the skin. This condition commonly occurs in postmenopausal women, although cases are also reported in men and children. In women, lichen sclerosus et atrophicus usually affects the vulva. In boys and men, who are not circumcised, the risk of suffering from this disease increases, since it generally affects the foreskin.

Symptoms

One of the symptoms of Lichen is pain during sexual intercourse, itching, fissures, blisters. It can produce scars that narrow the vaginal opening. It is very frequent that the patients who suffer from lichen suffer alterations of the desire and the possibility of having sexual relations.

Treatment for vulvar or perianal lichen sclerosus

He Dr Ricardo Hoogstra performs a treatment at the Caballito branch in the surgical area Carbon dioxide laser both inside the vagina and the external genital area. This treatment is associated with the application of a large quantity of plasma enriched in platelets.

The combination of the Aphrodite Laser plus rich plasma produces a repairing and rejuvenating effect of the treated area. Treatment with Carbon Dioxide Laser in conjunction with the application of platelet-enriched plasma increases vascularity, elasticity and trophism of the affected tissue.

We consider that before or at the same time of performing this treatment it is convenient to perform biopsies to confirm through histopathological studies that what we are really treating is a Scleroatrophic Lichen. This procedure is performed under sedation and the patient must carry out previous studies. It is ambulatory and effective.

Umbilical or inverted nipples

The normal nipple projects approximately 1 cm from the areolar skin. We call flat, inverted, retracted and umbilicated nipples, to those nipples that do not have the usual conical shape projected outward.

Difference between retracted and inverted nipple

Usually both terms are used interchangeably, however the differentiation is important, since inverted nipples are generally benign. Technically it is called an inverted nipple when the nipple is completely inward of the breast. Instead, "retracted" is used when the subsidence is partial.

How to verify it?

To verify how your nipples are you can look at yourself in front of a mirror, if they protrude approximately one centimeter they are normal. Place your index finger and thumb on the areola and perform gentle massages, if the nipple is projected forward it is a sign of normality, in case this does not happen, it is possible that your nipple is flat. On the other hand, if by massaging the areola the nipple is dipped into the areolar skin, you have an inverted nipple.

Types of retracted nipples

umbilical retracted nipple

  • The flat nipples they do not protrude from the areola nor do they protrude outward when stimulated.
  • The sunken nipples they retract backwards, in the shape of a navel, when they are stimulated.
  • The inverted nipples or umbilicated nipples They occur between 5% and 10% of women, they are also frequent in men.

Causes

The causes are congenital due to a shortening of the ducts and fibrotic bands of the breast from birth, or acquired after mastitis, surgery or breast cancer.

Inverted nipple treatment

He Dr. Ricardo Hoogstra Make an incision below the nipple and cut the fibers that pull it inward.
After the release of the nipple some points are made to keep it in its new position and achieve a permanent result.
This is a minimally invasive procedure, it does not leave scars, it is ambulatory and immediate recovery.

Female Genital Rejuvenation with Rich Plasma

Use of Platelet Rich Plasma in internal and external female genital rejuvenation

One of the very little invasive procedures that rejuvenates the vagina and vaginal lips is the application of Platelet Rich Plasma.

For many years we have been using Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to reduce wrinkles, grooves, cellulite, stretch marks and ulcer repair. It is also used in orthopedics and dentistry for bone repair.

The use of rich plasma has no adverse effects on the body. It consists of withdrawing a small amount of blood from the patient himself, centrifuging it and using the platelet concentrate to reconstitute tissue. Platelets have substances called Growth Factors, which once injected into the desired area produces cellular rejuvenation.

For a few years now, at Hoogstra Medical Centers we have been using PRP for internal and external genital rejuvenation, sometimes as the only procedure, but more frequently in combination with laser, both for facial and genital rejuvenation.

It is a quick, painless and immediate recovery procedure, and the patient can have sex the next day. If combined with lasers, it requires a 7-day sexual abstinence.

Cost.

The application of rich plasma intra vaginal and in external genital organs is performed by Dr. Ricardo Hoogstra on Tuesdays and Wednesdays in the morning at the clinic in San Jose de Calasanz 176.

It has a cost of 21,000 pesos plus VAT.

More information.

With the injection of this fraction of PRP we seek to reverse the signs of aging of the mucosa and skin due to the action of these released growth factors. Growth factors stimulate the production of fibroblasts responsible for the synthesis of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, essential components to maintain the structure of tissues. Also due to its action, angiogenesis (formation of new blood vessels) and mitogenesis (formation of new cells) are stimulated. All these changes improve dryness, atrophy, flaccidity, dyschromias (color changes) and improves the texture, tone, color, brightness and luminosity of the skin and mucosa.

After applying the PRP, the skin can feel smoother, softer and younger. The same happens at the level of the vaginal mucosa: the secretion of hyaluronic acid, collagen and elastin is stimulated, which improves the lubrication of the vaginal canal and prevents pain during intercourse.

The frequency of sessions is one every month with a maximum of 3 per year. Results for some women are fast and in other cases it takes several weeks to achieve the desired effects.

Since 2009, when Dr. Charles Runels, a doctor from Alabama, United States, began applying PRP to the clitoris and vaginal ceiling where the G-spot is supposed to be, there are more and more women in the United States and Europe than request this procedure. Dr. Charles Runel says that his patients have "greater arousal, more intense orgasms, and younger, smoother skin around the vagina."

This procedure is the same that we have been performing to rejuvenate the vagina and external genitalia, although with greater application of plasma rich in the vaginal ceiling and clitoris. Sometimes we also associate the application of hyaluronic acid in these areas.

The results are produced by a decrease of the vaginal introitus favoring friction, rejuvenating and lubricating the genitals, obtaining a positive effect in the sexual act.
