Why have vaginal fillers?
A loss of volume in the vulval and vagina area can lead to discomfort and a loss of confidence. Sex may become uncomfortable, and even riding a bike or a horse may be difficult when the protective cushioning tissue is depleted. Fillers can relieve tenderness, as well as enhancing and strengthening the mucosa and structures of the vagina, which in turn, improves appearance.

Yes, in that they work in a similar way, and both contain hyaluronic acid (HA), a type of dermal filler. Hyaluronic acid is found naturally throughout the body, with the highest concentrations in the joints, eyes, and skin.

Another difference is, vaginal fillers are not just used for aesthetic reasons, they can help with function too, improving sexual intimacy and allowing women to enjoy activities such as cycling and horse-riding more comfortably.
