Femilift – A Vaginal Rejuvenation treatment

Femilift is a minimally-invasive CO2 laser out-patient treatment delivering state-of-the-art optimal care for multiple feminine concerns. The Femilift treatment tightens the vaginal canal, reduces urinary incontinence, and improves postmenopausal vaginal dryness.

Why Rejuvenate the vagina?

Just like the skin, the vagina changes with the process of Aging. Hormonal changes, childbirth, weight changes, cancer treatments all can lead to the altered vaginal mucosa,  causing mucosal atrophy or overstretching of the tissue.

What are the symptoms?

As a result of the above-mentioned changes, certain Symptoms can develop:

  • Postpartum vaginal laxity – stretched vaginal canal after babies
  • Stress urinary incontinence – leaking with coughing laughing or exercise
  • Recurrent urine or vaginal Infections
  • Itching, and burning 
  • Vaginal dryness and thinning mucosa – causing micro-tears and discomfort
  • Post-menopausal Painful intercourse
  • Reduced satisfaction with intercourse- due to decreased sensitivity and overstretch of the canal

How does Femilift treatment work?

Femilift delivers a powerful CO2 laser for thermal heating and micro-ablation of the vaginal wall. This laser treatment process stimulates your body to produce new elastin and collagen returning the vaginal canal to a more youthful state. As a result, the vaginal wall will have a thicker mucosa, be smaller and tighter in diameter, and have more elasticity.   The femilift treatment also stimulates the growth of new blood vessels and improves the local tissue immune response. Therefore the vagina will lubricate more easily and have a restored PH and flora, meaningless itching, burning, or recurrent infections.
