What is FemiLift vaginal rejuvenation?

 

As women go through the natural stages of life such as pregnancy, childbirth, hormonal changes during the menopause and weight fluctuations, the associated physiological changes may have a negative impact. Problems can include involuntary urine leakage, vaginal laxity, vaginal dryness and recurrent infections.

FemiLift is an FDA approved, non-surgical laser vaginal rejuvenation treatment. It’s ideal for women of any age looking to increase their confidence in daily activities, improve their sex life – or do both.

 

As the aging process occurs, the collagen within the vaginal wall and pelvic floor muscles deteriorate. These structures are also damaged when overstretched during pregnancy and childbirth, resulting in decreased mucosal tone of the vaginal wall and pelvic support structures that cause vaginal prolapse and stress urinary incontinence. As the oestrogen levels change during the menopause, the ability of the vaginal to stretch and lubricate decreases, as does the thickness of the vaginal tissue, resulting in vaginal atrophy, vaginal dryness and recurring infections

 

These medical conditions can have a significant negative impact on a woman’s quality of life and intimate relationships.

 

FemiLift is available at Urban Aesthetix Clinic as a procedure that’s fast, painless and safe – with little or no downtime – with highly effective results.

 

FemiLift uses clinically-proven fractional CO2 laser technology to restore the strength and elasticity of the vaginal walls. The laser gently heats the vaginal tissue, contracts existing collagen fibres and stimulates the development of new collagen and new blood vessels to improve tissue firmness, increase lubrication and boost immune resistance to restore strength.

 

The ageing process and hormonal changes also causes thinning and less plumpness to the labia majora (outer vulval lips) and a darkening to the labia minor (inner vulval lips. All this can also be improved with FemiLift.

 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Why consider FemiLift vaginal rejuvenation?

FemiLift vaginal rejuvenation can be used to treat a number of different vaginal conditions all at the same time:

  • Vaginal tightening: to increase tightness and improve your sex life by toning and rebuilding the collagen of the vaginal walls.

 

  • Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI): to support the urethra by increasing the thickness of the vaginal walls and strengthening the pelvic support structure. This helps to stop urine leaking when there’s pressure on the bladder due to coughing, sneezing, laughing or exercise.

 

  • Peri- and post-menopause: to increase the thickness of the vaginal walls, increase blood flow and restore natural lubrication. As well as helping with itching and burning symptoms, this can improve your sex life.

 

  • Post-pregnancy rehabilitation: to strengthen and tone vaginal tissue that may feel stretched and dry, with a weakened pelvic floor.

 

  • Vaginal dryness and vaginal Infections: to increase blood flow and generate new, healthy tissue with normal PH levels to resist infection.

What does FemiLift vaginal tightening laser treatment involve?

Just like any vaginal ultrasound exam, a hygienic, single-use probe is inserted into the vagina through which a gentle yet powerful CO2 fractional laser achieves a deep thermal effect. This stimulates the production of new collagen and rejuvenates vaginal tissue.

 

FemiLift is an FDA approved CO2 laser. Treatment is simple and safe if carried out by Dr Unnati, who is an experienced and fully qualified clinician, following a detailed consultation to examine the area to treat and decide on what is best for you.

 

The entire treatment takes under 30 minutes and is virtually painless with minimal downtime.

How soon should you notice a difference?

FemiLift creates an immediate thermal effect which results in noticeable vaginal tightening and vulval plumping within days. The induced healing cascade triggered by the FemiLift laser treatment results in the production of collagen and new vessels within a month and continues beyond three months.

How long does FemiLift last?

The results of FemiLift are long lasting: up to two years. The number of treatments needed will vary on patient needs and expectations, although up to three treatments every four weeks are recommended for optimal results.

Are there any side effects to FemiLift?

Side-effects are minimal, if any, and may include slight vaginal discharge or bleeding in the first 48 hours after treatment.

Points to consider

At the initial consultation, Dr Unnati will discuss the recommended number of treatments needed for you so that they are tailored to your needs. She can also perform an up-to-date smear and sexual health screen at this time if needed.

 

It is important to avoid sexual intercourse or to use tampons for five days post-treatments.

 

Any clinical procedure carries a risk of complications, which is why it is always highly advisable to have cosmetic treatments safely performed by a doctor. Dr Unnati is a GP and specialist Non-Surgical Aesthetic Physician, trained in dermatology, gynaecology and medical cosmetics.
