For Vaginal Health
Genesis Cosmetic Laser Center is proud to be the exclusive area provider for a new and innovative procedure that addresses problems with vaginal looseness or laxity, vaginal dryness, and mild urinary incontinence caused by loose vaginal tissue. Introducing FEMI LIFT, a revolutionary CO2 laser treatment that addresses all those issues.
After childbirth, with aging, and especially menopause the collagen of the vagina begins to weaken much like it does on the face. This causes the vagina to become loose and also to lose some of the support under the urethra resulting in leakage. Many patients complain of lessened sexual sensation and satisfaction due to the vaginal laxity. In addition, with menopause, lack of natural lubrication can result in even further sexual discomfort that requires lubricants or hormone cream. FEMI LIFT can address all these.
Medical CO2 lasers have been around for decades but this is one of the first ones to specifically address vaginal problems. The procedure is very simple. After a brief exam, a specially designed speculum is inserted into the vagina. Inside the speculum a small mirror deflects a modified laser toward the vaginal wall. When the laser is fired very tiny “pin like “ punctures or pixels are sent into the vaginal wall resulting in rejuvenation of the vaginal “skin” and new collagen growth that tightens the vagina. Along with tightening the vaginal wall and reducing the laxity there is a further tightening of the tissue around the bladder stem or urethra resulting in a noticeable lessening or elimination of annoying bladder leakage. The rejuvenation of the vaginal lining gives the woman more natural lubrication and moisture.
No anesthesia or numbing is necessary. The procedure takes about 10 -15 minutes and you can go back to work or other activities immediately after. We do recommend refraining from sexual activity for about 3 days. While many patients notice improvement of their symptoms after one treatment, two treatments and sometimes three are recommended spaced one month apart.
