FemiLift is a non-invasive treatment for urinary stress incontinence, vaginal laxity, menopausal conditions and vaginal pain

When FemiLift was first mentioned in the UK press it was with some criticism that women should want to tighten their vaginas.  It seems that few journalists had investigated the procedure or taken the time to read some of the reviews posted by women on American websites.  It appears that many are happy with the outcome of the treatment.

Rather than being ‘just’ a cosmetic procedure designed to play on women’s insecurities, as suggested, the FemiLift has a number of physical benefits.  It can help with urinary stress incontinence (USI), improve sexual function and satisfaction, increase lubrication and even ease pain and discomfort.

FemiLift vaginal rejuvenation – how does it work?

As we age we lose collagen and elastin throughout the body.  The scaffolding which has held up our faces starts to sag and internally the vagina becomes more lax.  This can create pressure on the urethra causing urinary stress incontinence.  The trauma of childbirth can also leave the vaginal walls damaged, making sex unsatisfactory and even painful for some women.

FemiLift rejuvenates the vagina with a fractional CO2 laser.  Similar to facial rejuvenation, the fractional laser creates tiny wounds within the walls of the vagina which stimulate the body to produce more collagen.  This in turn tightens and strengthens the walls of the vagina lifting the urethra and relieving the pressure.

The slight trauma caused by the laser is like cutting your finger when the body rushes to heal the wound by creating new skin.  FemiLift stimulates the healing response in a similar way, producing new collagen and elastin fibres.  For many women this treatment offers a quick solution with no downtime.  The procedure takes 15 minutes, and should be repeated 3-5 times depending on individual needs.  You don’t need any aftercare but you should abstain from intercourse for one week after treatment.

Who is FemiLift suitable for?

Women of all ages who are experiencing vaginal problems could be suitable for FemiLift.  If you are suffering urinary stress incontinence, menopausal symptoms such as vaginal dryness or discomfort during sexual intercourse then it might be worth investigating FemiLift.

After an initial complimentary consultation you will be referred to a gynaecologist who will assess your most recent smear test or take one before the treatment proceeds.
