Vaginal Laser Treatment

 

What is FemiLift?

A non-surgical, painless 15-minute office procedure utilizing a CO2 fractional Laser Pixel technology delivered into the vagina via a vaginal-shaped probe. The procedure consists of 3 treatments over 12 weeks, with a “touchup” one year later. The results are a noticeable tightening of the entire vaginal barrel for increased friction, lubrication, and pleasure during sexual intimacy.

What makes this laser different than any other on the market is the use of disposable sleeves. This ensures better cleanliness and reduced risk of any contamination. Also the FemiLift is the only laser on the market to have multiple sized vaginal probes.

What does FemiLift accomplish?

FemiLift works via pulses of laser energy into the collagen layer of the vaginal mucosa, where concentrated thermal heating leads to collagen and elastin “shrinkage” and secondary regeneration, producing a tightening of the vaginal tissues.

By altering and rearranging collagen fibers, enabling the formation of elastin and better collagen formation, FemiLift can provide long-term reversal of the atrophic effects of aging on the vaginal walls. Improving thickness, lubrication, and decreasing pain with intercourse.

How does FemiLift work?

A laser generator produces safe pulses of patterned pixel-screen laser energy delivered via a tube-shaped intra-vaginal device. These pulses generate laser beams in a grid less than ½ mm apart and 0.6 mm deep via a microscopic laser-produced opening at intervals of several millimeters into the collagen under the dermis (the layer just underneath the vaginal skin). This causes a 360° symmetrical micro-contracture of the entire vaginal barrel, leading to overall tightening in the case of laxity, including tightening of the upper vagina, producing added support for the base of the bladder. In a different power mode, FemiLift may be utilized solely to stimulate collagen and elastin formation to enable better “stretchability” of the vaginal tissues.

Who is a good candidate for this procedure? Who is not?

Candidates: 

  1. Vaginal dryness

  2. Postmenopausal females with symptoms of itching, burning, and thinned vaginal tissue

  3. Breast cancer patients who cannot use estrogen therapy

  4. Pain with sexual intercourse, patients with decreased lubrication

  5. Lichen Sclerosis, often accompanied by itching on the outside of the vagina

Not Candidates:

  1. Women with a significant pelvic floor vaginal laxity involving significant widening and muscular separation; these women need a surgical repair and will be disappointed with a solely laser procedure.

  2. Women with significant urinary incontinence and/or prolapse; these women need a surgical repair/“sling” or “tape” procedure.

What women are saying:

"I am more than happy to write about my experience with FemiLift. First, this procedure changed my life so much, and second, Dr. Regan is my hero! I had been having non-stop UTIs and sex was impossible. I was in constant misery. Dr. Regan explained the procedure thoroughly and the staff even held my hand and talked me through it, although all I felt were little pin pricks. My UTIs have gone from monthly to almost nonexistent! And, I am able to have sex again! No more pain! I am so thankful to Dr. Regan for suggesting FemiLift. I highly recommend this procedure for any woman experiencing similar issues. It’s a life changer!"

"The aging process, my medications and hormonal changes left me with vaginal dryness, irritation and frequent UTI's. Dr. Regan's expertise with the FemiLift laser procedure alleviated my discomfort. The FemiLift procedure was carried out in the office on my way home from work. One year UTI free and no complaints from my hubby either!" 
-Sharon, 2019
