Vaginal Rejuvenation

What does FemiLift accomplish (for vaginal tightening)?

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. The initial shrinkage and secondary regeneration produce improved pressure on the “G-Spot” and increase the stretch of the internal bulbs and crurae of the internal portion of the clitoris. Tightening also occurs along the base of the overlying bladder, with evidence shows that it also improves the pesky problem of minor urinary incontinence.

The outcome of this procedure is the complete remodeling of the vaginal mucosa, in addition to the re-establishment of robust “younger-seeming” vaginal tissue embedded with thick and long collagen fibers.

What does FemiLift accomplish (for vaginal atrophic changes)?

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.

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.

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

Candidates: Women with minimal to moderate vaginal looseness or laxity not severe enough to need a complete surgical repair (“Vaginoplasty”), but bothersome enough (less “grip,” too much “droop”) to diminish sexual pleasure and sometimes lead to modest urinary incontinence. Perfect candidates are:

  1. Women who have not yet had a child but either feel themselves “wide” inside or have a partner with a smaller-sized penis.
  2. Women with laxity after childbirth who plan on another child/children and need “temporary” tightening until their final childbirth, after which they may undergo a permanent surgical tightening procedure if the problem persists.
  3. Women who will undergo a Vaginoplasty (surgical tightening procedure) of the outer (lower) half of the vagina/vaginal floor, but also have noticeable widening in the far inner (upper) vagina (where a surgical pelvic floor tightening procedure traditionally cannot reach), which frequently occurs with a coexisting problem of occasional involuntary loss of urine, and who wish to avoid an in-hospital general anesthesia, which is sometimes risky for upper-vaginal repair.
  4. Women with mild urinary incontinence.
  5. Women with only modest vaginal laxity and decent musculature, who wish to avoid a surgical procedure.
  6. Post-menopausal women with dry, atrophic vaginal tissues.

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.
  3. Women with very tightened, atrophic vaginas; these women will first need to undergo re-estrogenization and mild mechanical dilation in order to physically accommodate the treatment probe
