Does This Sound Familiar?
You feel a sneeze coming along. Usually, one might just sneeze and move on. But this is a big deal. You fight it as much as possible because you know when you sneeze, you pee. You cross your legs in preparation and dread the coming messy cleanup you’re going to have to deal with. Every time you sneeze, it’s an annoying, embarrassing spectacle. The same goes for laughing. While laughter may be the best medicine, you don’t care anymore. You dread funny moments because laughing is not fun and games anymore. Surprisingly enough, this is a pretty common problem. Many women suffer from Stress Urinary Incontinence. We promise; you’re not alone.
It’s More Common Than You’d Think!
Everyday we cough, sneeze, laugh, bend over, and do other simple actions. We used to be able to do this with no problem! So why does it lead to urinary leakage now? Some women find it so hard to control their bladders that they have to drop everything and run to the bathroom immediately. These bladder control problems are known as Stress Urinary Incontinence, or SUI for short. When the muscles and tissues that regulate the bladder and the release of urine are weakened, this is called SUI. These muscles and tissues are integral to controlling your urinary release, so when they are weakened, they can’t do their job as well. This causes you to leak urine unexpectedly and involuntarily. This phenomenon can be caused by a variety of factors. For some, it can develop over time as they age. For others, it can happen after childbirth or it can come about quickly as their hormones change. It can even happen if you’ve experienced an increase in body weight. There are many other factors that can cause it as well, and unfortunately, it can also happen for no reason at all. The important thing to keep in mind is that it’s not your fault, you’re not alone, and the best part of it all: it’s not permanent. This is where Femilift comes in. We can help you get rid of this problem once and for all.
What is Femilift?
Femilift is a vaginal resurfacing laser. It’s FDA approved and uses fractional CO2 laser with pixel technology to rejuvenate the tissue in the vagina. The laser is delivered using a probe that is vaginal shaped. This procedure is completely non-invasive and can be administered in less than half an hour. It is completely painless and there are no side effects whatsoever. You can come in during your lunch break and get back to work with no downtime and none the wiser that you just rejuvenated your best friend!
Femilift works in different power modes. One power mode will result in noticeable tightening in the entirety of the vaginal canal, which leads to increased frictional contact and therefore more pleasure during sexual intercourse. Another power mode reverses the weakening experienced in the vagina, which we’ve discussed is the cause of SUI. The treatment process includes a total of 3 treatments administered 4 weeks apart, and a 4th treatment one year later for a touchup. In as little as 12 weeks, you can go back to sneezing and laughing without a care in the world! Laugh to your heart’s content, it’s the best medicine after all.
How Does It Work?
The vaginal mucosa has a layer of collagen and elastin, similar to the rest of your skin. Femilift works by pulsing energy in the form of focused thermal heating into this layer, which causes the elastin and collagen in the vaginal wall to shrink as well as secondary regeneration. The vaginal skin thus experiences increased elasticity and resilience for about 12 to 18 months. The area along the base of the bladder and the pre-urethral area experience tightening, which improves SUI. This also increases intra vaginal friction and the pressure experienced at the G spot.
Femilift for Stress Urinary Incontinence
Femilift stimulates the renewal of collagen as well as the tightening of the elastin fibers using a powerful thermal laser that achieves effects deep into the vagina. The long pulse energy creates a powerful effect, which induces rejuvenation as well as the remodeling of the tissue. The pre-urethral area is the main affected area. The thickness of the vaginal walls increase and the mid urethra underside experiences a much better support. This results in a significant decrease in SUI symptoms and improvement in urinary control. The patient will also experience better continence in the long term.
Studied and Backed by science!
Femilift has had clinical studies done, which prove its efficiency and back it with science and evidence. One study took 85 women with SUI symptoms and validated the ICIQ UI SF, a form used to gauge urinary continence, using the cough stress test. These women were treated with two sessions of the Pixel CO2 laser in Femilift in a one-month interval. Before the trial, the ICIQ-UI-SF concluded that 276.1% of women experienced mild SUI symptoms, 24.7% experienced moderate SUI symptoms, 45.9% experienced severe symptoms, and 2.4% experienced very severe SUI symptoms. After the trial was finished, with only 2 treatments administered, the severity of the symptoms experienced were significantly reduced. At the 6-month follow up, scores showed that 45.8% of women had no symptoms, 18.8% had mild symptoms, 20.8% had moderate symptoms and 14.6% had severe symptoms. Notice that none of the women experienced very severe symptoms 6 months after the trial was completed. None of the patients experienced adverse effects or significant pain during or after the procedure, and the trial proved that the laser was safe and effective for treating Stress Urinary Incontinence.
Does It Actually Work?
Yes! Not only did the clinical trial prove that Femilift is a safe and effective treatment for SUI, but women suffering from SUI have found this laser to be extremely helpful. The laser delivers thermal energy that stimulates collagen, remodels the vaginal tissue, and strengthens the muscles and tissues that support the pelvic area. As a result, it helps reduce mild to moderate bladder leakage.
