Women’s healthcare groups worldwide recognize FemiLift® (produced by Alma) as a proven safe, effective, quick, pain-free, and minimally-invasive procedure. This “gold standard” technology utilizes CO2-powered lasers to gently remodel soft tissue in the vagina for various purposes.

Specifically in the anti-aging context, FemiLift tightens the soft tissues in the vagina while restoring their natural flexibility and elasticity. The result following FemiLift treatment is a healthier vagina and an elimination or significant reduction in uncomfortable symptoms like painful intercourse, recurrent vaginal infections or urinary leakage.  

What Causes Issues with Women’s Vaginal Health as They Age?

A number of life events and natural processes can impact the appearance and function of the vagina, including:

  • Menopause. The transition into menopause is one of the biggest triggers of vaginal issues. Surveys have found that vaginal issues arising during and after this often-difficult period can commonly impact quality of life:

“Vaginal symptoms are a common complaint of women during and after menopause, with up to a third of postmenopausal women reporting problems with vaginal dryness, soreness, itching, irritation, or pain that can affect their day-to-day activities, feelings, and relationships.”

A primary feature of menopause is a decline in estrogen, the main female sex hormone. These menopause-induced changes are associated with a decline in collagen and elastin: “Vaginal wall connective tissue components, including collagen, elastin, and smooth muscle, all degenerate as a result of estrogen deprivation.” (more on how FemiLift restores collagen and elastin levels later)

  • Vaginal childbirth. From Women’s Health: “Vaginal childbirth is the most common mode of delivery and it has been associated with increased incidence of pelvic floor disorders later in life… Stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse are strongly associated with vaginal childbirth and parity.”
  • The natural hormone-related aging process. Over time, hormone changes in general increase likelihood of developing conditions such as vulvovaginal atrophy/genitourinary syndrome increases exponentially, frequently causing itching, bleeding, and dryness. 
  • Weight gain. Obesity is associated with an increased risk of stress urinary incontinence and other markers of poor vaginal health. 

How Does the FemiLift Work?

FemiLift works by stimulating collagen and elastin production. This has the effect of fortifying the vaginal wall that is often weakened by natural aging, hormonal changes during menopause, childbirth, etc. that we talked about above. 

As the evidence shows, boosting collagen production via laser is essential for restoring vaginal health:

“Laser energy in the mid-infrared invisible light spectrum stimulates collagen/elastin contraction, neocollagenesis, and neovascularization and thus improves vaginal lubrication by revitalizing and restoring the elasticity and hydration of the female lower genital tract mucosa.”

"The Femlift process"

The FemiLift process, simply explained: as you lie back, the provider gently glides the single-use probe into the vagina to target the vaginal wall for treatment. During the process, the laser rotates a complete 360 degrees, issuing thermal energy from the probe deeply into the vaginal tissues. The resulting heat triggers the collagen fibers into contraction, stimulating new collagen production.

The increased collagen, in turn, revitalizes the mucosa, producing vaginal tightening, greater lubrication, and reduced incidents of urine leakage.

What the Science Says About FemiLift’s Safety and Efficacy

Understandably (and wisely), many patients want to see the hard evidence of a treatments’ effectiveness before receiving it. Here’s what the research published in the International Journal of Women’s Dermatology says about laser treatment’s usefulness for vaginal rejuvenation:

“Laser and RF technologies are widely and successfully used for treatments in dermatology and aesthetic medicine, stimulating the remodeling tissue properties and inducing the production of new collagen and elastic fibers. Thus, their application in the vaginal canal for feminine rejuvenation simply represents an expansion of therapeutic indications and hallmarks their versatility and the reactivity of biologic tissues to the beneficial effects of their mechanism of action. In the hands of well-trained physicians, energy-based devices are likely to benefit millions of women by aiding them in reclaiming, relishing, and reveling in their femininity at full capacity.”

The bottom line: FemiLift is clinically proven to deliver results. The large-scale adoption of FemiLift is still in its infancy but there’s no need to wait if you are one of the millions of women who can benefit. 

What Issues Does FemiLift Treat in LowTE Florida Patients?

Based on the mechanism of action, FemiLift’s anti-aging applications for women’s health are wide-ranging. It can treat various conditions associated like:

  • Stress urinary incontinence (SUI)
  • Recurrent infections
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Post-menopausal symptoms (itching, dryness, etc. that we discussed earlier), and.
  • Intimacy issues – Painful intercourse due to dryness
  • Post-delivery rehabilitation following the birth of a child

The majority of patients receiving FemiLift see a resolution or significant improvement to their symptoms with just a single round of treatment – which brings us to the proven benefits of FemiLift.
