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.

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.

How does FemiLift work?

FemiLift works via pulses of laser energy into the collagen layer of the vaginal mucosa. The 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).

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

Who is a good candidate for this procedure?
  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

    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!"
