Well, it’s been a year since we started using Femilift for Vaginal Laxity, mild urinary incontinance, and vaginal dryness. The results have been truly AMAZING. I first blogged on this revolutionaary devise a little over a year ago and I am happy to say that there has been virtually 100% satisfaction to date. We have had a mixture of patients come in with single complaints to many with multiple complaints listed above. One patient who had dryness from menopause could not use the vaginal creams due to irritation nor take the oral treatment due to extreme side effects. Vaginal lubricants burned so badly she could not enjoy sex. After one treatment she noted a 40% improvement in her symptoms after about 2-3 weeks. After the second treatment it was 90+% better to the point that she had a return of vaginal moisture and no further burning. Multiple patients treated for the minor incontinence are reporting similar results with no leaking on running or other activities that required a pad before treatment. All patients have experienced a tightenting of vaginal caliber and more fulfillment with sex for both her and her partner. I know it sounds too good to be true but it has been 100 % satifaction reported by all my treated patients. Now if you are having bulging from the vaginal opening with incomplete emptying of the bladder or a large amount of leakage then this may not be the cure as some of the more severe cases may need surgery. That can be determined by a simple pelvic exam.
Femilift takes about 5 minutes to do and can be done over your lunch break or even after work on the way home. No anesthesia is required although a numbing cream can be used if desired. However, to date, no one felt that numbing was necessary as any discomfort was described as a slight pinch on one or two pulses of the laser. ( we usually do 30-70 pulses depending on the vaginal depth). There is no down time afterward. Yes, it takes three treatments a month apart to get the complete lift and tightening but most patients are reporting that they are very satisfied after two sessions. The third one, I feel, will give you greater longevity of the treatment.
Femilift uses a fraxelated CO2 laser that divides the laser beam into about 16 small pin dots. These small pin dot lasers make micro damage into the collagen support layer of the vagina and also stimulate lining cell growth in the vagina. As healing and new collagen is formed there is a thickening of the lining cells and also a thikening and lift to the collagen support of the vagina. This results in an improvement of the vaginal looseness and a thickening and lift around the bladder stem or urethra that corrects the minor incontinence. Because of a return of normal lining cells or epithelium an increase in vaginal lubrication is evident.
