Women have vaginal health concerns that they are often too embarrassed to talk about, and surgery is often the recommended solution. However, there’s now a state-of-the-art procedure known as FemiLift that is an effective remedy for many of these issues.
What is FemiLift?
FemiLift is an FDA approved non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation treatment that uses fractional CO2 laser technology to tighten and strengthen the vaginal tissues. It is a minimally invasive, out-patient procedure that takes only 15 minutes to perform.
Since FemiLift is a non-surgical treatment it requires no anesthesia and there is no pain or downtime. However, patients are advised to refrain from sexual intercourse for at least three days after treatment.
It usually takes a series of three treatments done over a period of three months to achieve optimal outcomes with FemiLift. The results are immediate and long lasting.
How FemiLift Works
The small single-use probe containing the CO2 laser is inserted into the vagina. The laser can be rotated 360 degrees. The fractional CO2 laser pixelates the laser beam, creating tiny microscopic channels throughout the vaginal tissues. The thermal effect triggers the production of collagen and elastin, resulting in the tightening of the entire vaginal cavity.
FemiLift Can Treat The Following Feminine Concerns
Urinary incontinence is the involuntary leakage of urine. It is a condition that can be particularly embarrassing because it can be triggered by simple actions such as laughing, coughing or sneezing. Urinary incontinence in women is often the result of damage to the pelvic support structure, which weakens the bladder muscles. This is often due to factors such as childbirth, obesity and menopause.
FemiLift uses fractional CO2 laser technology to revitalize the vaginal tissues. Rejuvenating the tissues of the vaginal wall helps to tone the muscles and ligaments, making the urethra more elastic. Strengthening the components of the pelvic floor provides the support the urethra needs, thereby reducing the symptoms of urinary incontinence.
Many women struggle silently with vaginal laxity, a condition that is usually the result of collagen depletion. Collagen is a well-known structural component of the skin, but it’s also found in the vaginal tissues that keep the vaginal cavity tight.
Unfortunately, the body produces less collagen as you age, along with factors such as childbirth, menopause, and surgery. All contribute to the depletion of collagen levels in the vaginal tissues.
FemiLift stimulates collagen production, and more collagen helps the vaginal walls to become thicker and more resilient over time.
Vaginal Dryness and Painful Intercourse
Vaginal dryness is often the result of a reduction in estrogen production as a consequence of menopause. Estrogen is a hormone that contributes to the health of the vagina, and also keeps the tissues lubricated. Without sufficient estrogen the vaginal walls become less elastic, often resulting in painful intercourse. FemiLift remodels the vaginal mucosa, and prompts the body to produce more collagen. This improves moisture levels in the vagina, and also enhances vaginal sensitivity.
GSM (Genitourinary Syndrome of Menopause)
GSM previously known as vulvovaginal atrophy describes the symptoms associated with shifts in hormones (especially estrogen), brought on by menopause. Decreasing estrogen levels can cause vaginal dryness, recurrent infections, urinary urgency, burning and irritation in the vaginal area. It can also make the vagina thinner and less elastic. Women with GSM may have some or all of the symptoms mentioned.
FemiLift helps GSM by rejuvenating the tissue layers of the vaginal wall, which stimulates collagen and strengthens the existing collagen fibers. The vaginal tissue then becomes thicker and stronger, leading to a reduction or reversal in GSM symptoms.
Benefits of FemiLift
FemiLift is often preferred to traditional surgical options because it is fast, effective, and less expensive. The procedure can be performed in 15 minutes, so there is little or no disruption in your normal routine. You can have it done during your lunch break and go right back to work without any interference in your workday.
