One of the not so welcome after effects of childbirth, especially after the age of 30 or so, is a general loosening of the vaginal skin and muscles. Another cause of vaginal “looseness” is the simple act of aging, which results in a loss of elasticity, lubrication, and tightness. Whether your loose, or less elastic vagina results from childbirth or age, the condition often results in a less satisfying sexual experience, leading some women to opt for a surgical solution called vaginoplasty, which can tighten the vaginal muscles and skin.
Another minimally invasive option is called FemiLift, a procedure that tightens the vaginal skin only. The results will be less dramatic, but nonetheless, the procedure is a viable solution for many women who would rather not take the surgical route.
You can get an idea of the difference by considering a woman wanting to reduce the signs of aging on her face. She can consider a facelift, which means surgery (and the risks that all surgeries entail), a large financial commitment and significant downtime, or opt for Botox injections to achieve a less dramatic, but still significant improvement in things like frown lines and crow’s-feet. The results aren’t as dramatic as they would be had she opted for a facelift, but Botox is minimally invasive and less expensive, and still offers real improvement.
FemiLift CO2 Laser Treatment Explained
With no downtime, no real pain and no need for anesthesia, FemiLift is an attractive option for women looking to tighten vaginal skin, resulting in improved quality of life and a real boost in self-esteem as well. Here’s how it works …
The doctor will first perform a pelvic exam, and then begin the procedure which involves inserting a fractional CO2 laser between 4 and 6 cm into the vagina. Once the laser is turned on, the laser penetrates approximately 0.5 cm into the vaginal wall, which is deep enough to reach the layer of skin where collagen is formed.
The effects include a tightening of the vaginal walls, a restoring of tone and increased blood flow, resulting in enhanced sexual satisfaction as well as increased lubrication. The treatment also strengthens the ligaments supporting the bladder and urethra, which helps improve stress urinary incontinence.
Is There Pain or Discomfort Involved?
The FemiLift procedure feels similar to the pressure felt when a gynecologist inserts a speculum during a pelvic exam. It feels a little strange perhaps, but certainly not painful. Also reassuring, is the fact that the entire procedure only lasts about 10 minutes, although most women need about three treatments spaced about 4-6 weeks apart, and then one follow-up session after a year goes by for optimum results. In general, the FemiLift procedure is gentle and most women report satisfaction and long-term success!
A Case of Technology Making Life Easier
You might say that the advent of lasers to treat a variety of medical and aesthetic problems has been one of the greatest benefits of ever-improving technologies. Today’s women have choices that their mothers didn’t have, and FemiLift is one of the very best. The Alma CO2 laser used in the FemiLift procedure offers a gentle, precision treatment with no downtime and great results!
