FemiLift Vaginal Rejuvenation: Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’S)
What can women expect after the FemiLift treatment?
The enhanced vaginal tone promotes lubrication and blood circulation which improves sexual stimulation. Women that were suffering from urinary incontinence often see an improvement in their symptoms that can be significant enough to forgo corrective surgery.
How long after the treatment do I have to wait to have sex again?
Typically we have our patients try to wait 3 days.
What can FemiLift help with?
FemiLift is used for the treatment of these five main feminine concerns:
• Vaginal Tightening: As deep thermal heating encourages collagen production, skin laxity begins to improve, leading to a tighter sensation. Increased collagen levels also created thicker vaginal tissue, which decreases the diameter of the vagina for a smaller feeling.
• Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI): In the United States alone, this distressing condition affects almost 28 million women. Individuals with SUI suffer from involuntary leakage of urine in response to abdominal pressure (like the kind produced by laughing, sneezing, heavy lifting, etc.). FemiLift minimizes SUI symptoms by stimulating collagen and elastin renewal, which increases the thickness of the vaginal wall. As a result, the urethra is better supported and strengthened, making it less likely that individuals will experience involuntary leakage.
• Vaginal Dryness & Recurrent Infections: FemiLift rejuvenates the vulvo-vaginal, which increases natural lubrication while normalizing the vagina’s pH balance. As a result, the vagina feels lubricated, and infections begin to disappear.
• Post-Menopause Issues: As women go through menopause, the hormonal changes can lead to vaginal walls becoming thinner, drier, and inflamed. FemiLift helps rejuvenate the vaginal wall for more lubrication, strength, and greater elasticity.
• Post-Delivery Rehabilitation: After childbirth, the vaginal area may feel stretched and loose. FemiLift helps to strengthen and tighten the vaginal area through increased collagen and elastin production. Additionally, FemiLift can help improve elasticity and lubrication levels.
Is vaginal tightening effective?
Wade Laser Clinic specializes and is trained in vaginal treatments and woman’s health. We focus on women’s health, seeking treatments that help to improve your overall quality of life. Vaginal tightening with FemiLift is a treatment that does have a positive outcome on the look and function of the vagina. Patients with positive outcomes see improvement in the muscle tone, elasticity, and strength of the vaginal tissue. Patients also find they have stronger sensation during intercourse and have greater control over urinary incontinence.
When can patients resume normal activity after the FemiLift treatment?
Patients can resume normal activity immediately after the FemiLift treatment, with a couple exceptions. Patients should not have vaginal intercourse or use a tampon within three days after treatment or longer if instructed by the medical provider.
How long does one FemiLift treatment take?
Each FemiLift treatment lasts approximately 15 to 20 minutes. Your appointment will take about 30 minutes.
How many FemiLift treatments are suggested for optimal results?
Each patient experiences a different level of vaginal laxity, but three treatments spaced about four weeks apart is recommended for optimal results. Additionally, one maintenance treatment every year thereafter is recommended.
When should I be able to see the results of the vaginal rejuvenation procedure?
Most patients can sense a healthier, tighter vaginal wall immediately. However, the natural repair process will continue to progress during the weeks following the FemiLift treatment. Collagen remodeling takes time and will continue to progress months after treatment. It’s after the third treatment that patients should get their maximum benefit.
How long will the result of the FemiLift procedure last?
As long as the patient follows the instructions of the medical provider, the results are long-lasting, usually several years. Patients are instructed to perform Kegel exercises at home to further expedite and enhance the ongoing tissue remodeling and collagen contraction occurring after treatment.
Does the FemiLift treatment hurt?
Patients will feel comfortable and relaxed during the FemiLift procedure. The procedure is painless but we can give you a topical anesthetic if needed. Patients report almost no discomfort during or after the procedure.
How should patients feel after FemiLift?
Since increasing vaginal tightness is the goal of the FemiLift procedure, patients should expect vaginal tightness after the treatment. No other side effects should be expected.
How common is vaginal laxity?
Nearly half of all women who have had vaginal childbirth have some level of concern over vaginal looseness. A worldwide study conducted by OBGYNs recently revealed that vaginal laxity is the number one concern of women after childbirth, even more so than weight gain and stretch marks. Many other middle-aged women experience urinary incontinence and vaginal laxity as a result of the aging process. With the FemiLift procedure, women have a pain-free, non-surgical answer to vaginal laxity.
What is Urinary incontinence and can FemiLift help?
Urinary incontinence is the loss of bladder control, which results in inadvertent urination during low-level stress placed on the bladder, such as laughing, coughing and exercising. It is common in women who have delivered children vaginally. This leaking occurs when the pelvic floor weakens, which causes the urethra to sag. Exercises to restore the pelvic floor, such as Kegels, often are not enough to rejuvenate the pelvic floor. This is where the FemiLift can help. The fractional CO2 laser energy restores the pelvic floor and counteracts the sagging urethra, which in turn fights incontinence.
What causes vaginal tissue problems?
Millions of women suffer from vaginal irregularities related to structural changes in the body from child birthing. Women deal with changes directly to the vaginal canal, vaginal wall, and pelvic floor. Vaginal dryness and laxity of the pelvic floor can make intimacy difficult, sometimes painful for women. Many women become embarrassed and frustrated about these issues, which can increase the risk of self-esteem problems and depression. As women deal with such changes, it can place strains on relations, leading to additional challenges in life.
What to expect when restoring vaginal tissue
Patients will be able to receive treatment without the need for anesthesia, as the procedure takes approximately 15 minutes, without downtime following treatment. Patients will be able to return to normal daily routines, but it is recommended to paid 24 hours before performing regular exercise routines, and to avoid sexual activity for 72 hours.
How many treatments are required?
Most often, with just one treatment of FemiLift you can begin to have relief from incontinence with a painless, fractional CO2 laser treatment that requires no anesthesia and down time. Gentle pulses allow 360 degrees of treatment in one procedure to allow maximum effectiveness.
Incontinence is usually best treated in three sessions, each scheduled about one month apart. Schedule your consultation with Wade Laser Clinic today to discuss all of your options and to learn more about how issues of incontinence can be eliminated with FemiLift.
Is there any downtime?
NO! FemiLift provides a non-invasive vaginal solution that solves incontinence without any downtime.
What results can be expected?
Most of our patients experience initial relief of symptoms within the first week, with complete effects being felt after your full course of treatment. As the musculature that controls urine flow is energized by new collagen growth, issues of atrophy are overcome, and increased control of your bladder and relief from issues of stress incontinence are achieved.
What does the FemiLift treatment feel like?
FemiLift laser treatments are pain-free, requiring no surgery or needles, as it is a fractional CO2 laser treatment that is fired inside of the vagina and takes less than 10 minutes. Most of our patients describe the actual laser firing as feeling like a mild vibration.
Why should I get a FemiLift treatment?
A laser-based treatment, such as FemiLift, is much less invasive than alternative procedures. Other procedures to treat urinary incontinence often require surgery and will result in a significantly lengthier recovery period. FemiLift will eliminate the need for any downtime after the procedure.
How long will it take?
Patients typically experience relief from symptoms within a week of the first treatment. Effective treatment of urinary incontinence typically takes three sessions over a three month period. This will allow ample time for the body to regenerate collagen between treatments.
Will it hurt?
FemiLift is a pain-free treatment. The use of a laser eliminates the need for surgery or needles. The procedure usually takes less than ten minutes and patients report that a slight vibration is the only usual sensation.
How much does a treatment cost?
Although nationally FemiLift treatments average around $1000-$1500, our price is $800 per treatment with a package of 3 running $2100. Schedule an appointment today to see how many treatments are recommended for your unique situation.
