Frequently Asked Questions
What is FemiLift?
Over time, the natural processes of your lifecycle as a woman, such as childbirth, hormonal changes and weight fluctuations, can lead to various debilitating conditions, including: involuntary urine leakage, vaginal laxity, dryness and recurring infections. As a result, you may experience a decrease in the quality of your life – and sense of self.
FemiLift is the revolutionary clinical solution for restoring and optimizing feminine wellness at any age. FemiLift is a state-of-the-art, minimally-invasive outpatient procedure that incorporates CO2 technology to provide optimal care for various feminine concerns. The procedure is quick, painless, completely safe and provides highly satisfactory results, with no downtime, no need for anaesthesia and an immediate improvement in overall function with long lasting effects.
What does FemiLift treat?
Over time, especially after childbirth, vaginal tissue can overstretch, creating a feeling of looseness (laxity) and reduced sensitivity in the vaginal area. This can lead to decreased satisfaction during sexual intercourse, creating a significant quality of life issue. FemiLift tones and rebuilds the collagen of the vaginal walls, enhances the sensitivity of the vaginal receptors and contracts existing vaginal tissue, increasing vaginal tightness and improving sexual satisfaction.
Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI)
SUI is a term that describes involuntary leakage of urine during activities that increase pressure in the abdomen such as coughing, sneezing, laughing or exercise. This condition is caused by a loss of strength in the urethra due to a weakened pelvic support structure. FemiLift treats the entire area, supporting the urethra, increasing the thickness of the vaginal walls and strengthening the pelvic support structure. The treatment reduces the symptoms of SUI and effectively restores urinary continence.
The shift in hormones that occurs with menopause can cause the lining of the vagina to become thinner, drier, less elastic and inflamed. FemiLift rejuvenates the vaginal lining, increasing the thickness of the vaginal walls and restoring lubrication. The treatment reduces uncomfortable symptoms such as itching, burning and friction and helps improve sexual function.
Childbirth, a momentous lifecycle event, involves many physiological changes to a woman’s body. Post-delivery, the vaginal area may feel stretched and dry and the pelvic floor may be weakened. FemiLift rehabilitates the entire vaginal area by strengthening and toning vaginal tissue, and restoring its strength and flexibility.
Vaginal Dryness & Recurring Infections
FemiLift helps women suffering from dryness and recurring vaginal infections by rejuvenating the vaginal lining and restoring lubrication. The treatment increases the immune system response of the vaginal area, generates new healthy tissue with higher immune resistance to infections and allows the vagina to naturally maintain normal PH levels.
How does the FemiLift Procedure work?
Like skin, vaginal tissue is made up of collagen fibres which give it strength and flexibility. FemiLift uses the clinically established CO2 laser technology to gently heat vaginal tissue, contracting existing fibres and stimulating the formation of new collagen. The FemiLift treatment improves the functionality of the entire vaginal area.
A hygienic single-use probe is inserted into the vagina. The probe is rotated as the laser gently treats the vaginal tissue. The procedure takes less than thirty minutes, is virtually pain-free and has no adverse effects.
How Long Do result for FemiLift Last?
Results are expected to last 18 months to 2 years for control of urinary incontinence. You may then require top-up treatment sessions to maintain the tightening and control.
What are the risks and Side Effects of FemiLift?
Some women have noted that the treatment is more comfortable than having a smear test. It is expected to feel some warmth during the delivery of the laser energy. You can return to your normal activities almost immediately. It is advised to abstain from all forms of sexual activity or the insertion of tampons for approximately 5 days. Additionally, it is advised to avoid strenuous exercise for a week. Expect to experience some tenderness following treatment. Some women also experience a watery discharge or spotting for a day or so following treatment.
When will I see results for FemiLift?
A course of 3 sessions is recommended for FemiLift, spaced two to four weeks apart, or up to 5 sessions particularly in the case of significant vaginal laxity.
Most women will notice a significant improvement after 2 or 3 treatment sessions. You may be advised to have a top-up treatment after one year to maintain your results.
