Likewise, aging can bring about undesired changes.

  • Laxity: childbirth & aging stretch & weaken the vaginal lining.
 
  • Aging causes thinning and drying of the vaginal lining.
 
  • Stretching & thinning of the lining causes loss of support for the bladder & can lead to urinary incontinence when laughing, coughing, jogging, dancing.

FAQs


FemiLift is a CO2 laser treatment done internally to rejuvenate the vagina. It can tighten the vagina, improve menopausal dryness, and reduce urinary incontinence.*

In the doctor's office, a laser probe is inserted into the vagina. Laser energy is delivered which causes tiny injuries to the vaginal lining. As these injuries heal, collagen is produced which thickens and tightens the lining.*

 

The equipment that comes into contact with patients inside and outside the vagina is a single-use sterile disposable sleeve.

The same kind of laser has been used for many years on the face for rejuvenation and smoothing of wrinkles.

This is a walk-in, walk-out procedure with no downtime. 

 

Laser vaginal resurfacing with the FemiLift can bring about vaginal tightening which can enhance sexual gratification for you and your partner.*
 
Urinary incontinence can improve.* 
 

Post-menopausal vaginal atrophy (thin dry, irritated tissue) can improve.*

FemiLift is suitable for most women who are experiencing vaginal looseness, post-menopausal vaginal dryness, and/or mild urinary incontinence. 
 
In some cases, problems are too severe for the laser to be effective enough, and surgery needs to be considered. This is the case in moderate to severe prolapse (falling of the bladder, uterus, or rectum into the vagina). 
 
It is not suitable for women who have had surgery involving insertion of mesh or slings (bladder suspension) or those who have undergone radiation treatments to the area. 
 
You can't have treatments if you are pregnant, have an active Herpes infection, or you are on your period (blood will prevent the laser energy from reaching the vaginal lining).

Traditional alternatives are surgery and/or hormone therapy, both of which carry risks.

The treatment is virtually painless. There may be some mild discomfort. Most women report that it is more comfortable than having a Pap smear. 
 
Usually, no anesthetic of any kind is required. Occasionally patients need topical anesthetic (benzocaine spray applied to the vaginal lining). 
 
There is no pain after the procedure, and you can return to normal activity immediately with the exception of intercourse which you will avoid for three days.
Risks are minimal because of the limited surface area that is damaged and the very shallow penetration of the laser.
 
Because the vaginal lining has been disrupted, it is at risk of infection, but this is extremely unlikely.
 
Mild internal swelling will occur, and this will resolve in a few days. 
 
Genital Herpes can be triggered if you are prone to it.
 
Occasionally there is mild discharge, and this might be blood-tinged.
 
On rare occasions, there is bladder or urethral irritation. This might cause urinary urgency and/or burning for a few days.
 
The FemiLift laser can injure the surface of the eye. Laser glasses will be provided to protect your eyes. 

Absolutely not. The wavelength of light that produces cancer is in the ultraviolet range of the spectrum.

The FemiLift produces light at the opposite end of the spectrum in the infrared range. It will not cause cancer.

The FemiLift treatment is trying to reverse damage from overstretching and aging of the vagina. It doesn’t stop the aging process. Poor vaginal tone and weakening of the lining will eventually return. Maintenance treatments are needed, perhaps one treatment every two years. * 

Generally, three sessions are required for the initial treatment. Maintenance usually only requires a single session every few years.

We will be booking 30 minutes for your visit, but the treatment portion only takes about 10 minutes.

We usually book your 3 sessions at 3 to 5 week intervals.

For 3 days you should avoid penetrating sexual activity, tampons, hot-tubs, and pools.  
 
You can return to your normal activities immediately. This is a walk-in, walk-out procedure. There is no downtime.
 
No special after-care is required.
Vaginal rejuvenation depends on new collagen production and new blood vessel formation, both of which require time. Peak effects are seen 3-6 months after the last treatment.

However, many women report positive effects almost immediately.* Initially, this is probably due to a bit of swelling. There is a also some instantaneous contraction of existing collagen that will give immediate tightening.
 
And it will keep getting better, since the full benefit will be evident about 4 months after your third treatment.*

There are several devices out there. They use CO2 laser, erbium laser, or radio-frequency treatment modalities.

The manufacturer of the FemiLift laser (Alma Lasers) builds devices that use all of these modalities. They could have chosen any of them to develop a vaginal rejuvenation treatment. They chose CO2 because it was the most effective.

No. This treatment is considered to be cosmetic.

Generally speaking, extended health insurance will not cover the cost, but this depends on your policy. Check with your insurance agent.

Health Spending Accounts can probably be used to cover the cost since the treatment is provided by a physician. Check with your Human Resources officer.

Starting in 2010, tax credits could no longer be claimed for cosmetic treatments.

We require 48 hours notice for cancellation of your consultation or treatment, in order to fill the appointment time. If sufficient notice is not given, the full value of the treatment to be done may be charged. The minimum charge for a missed appointment or late cancellation is $100 (one hundred dollars). If you have booked a package , the missed treatment will be deemed to have been given.

Can I have FemiLift if I have a coil (IUD) already fitted?

Yes.

I want a baby in a couple of years, should I wait?

FemiLift is expected to be effective for about two years. If you are planning pregnancy within two years or less, we suggest that you wait until after the birth.

Can I get an infection from this treatment?

Single-use disposables prevent any risk of infection transmission.

If I have vaginal thrush, will this treatment make it worse?

No, it will not make it worse, but yeast infections should be under control during treatment. Otherwise, the yeast plaques can block the laser energy from getting to the vaginal lining. If you are prone to getting thrush then it would be a good idea to obtain an over-the-counter treatment such as Canesten about 4 or 5 days prior to your planned laser treatment.

I am having laser hair removal on my bikini line. Is it ok to have FemiLift?

No problem.

I think I might have a STD, can I have FemiLift?

It is better to have this checked out and treated before you have Femilift. 

Can you exercise straight after?

Yes. You can return to your normal activities immediately except for penetrative sexual activity. 

Can I have a hot shower or bath or use the sauna after the treatment?

Yes, but no hot-tubs.

Will this treatment help or prevent prolapse?

It may help with mild prolapse but is unlikely to prevent prolapse long-term.

Can I have this treatment if I have had a hysterectomy?

Yes.

I suffer from vaginal dryness. Will this treatment make it worse?

No. If anything it may help. Recent studies showed improvement in the dryness caused by menopause.

How long after giving birth can I undergo treatment?

After a vaginal birth, it would be advisable to wait 3 months to ensure that any scars from tears or episiotomy have had a chance to heal and the vaginal tone has recovered naturally.

Can I have the treatment while breast feeding?

Yes

Can it hurt my clitoris?

No, the clitoral nerves are safe and far from the treated area.
