FemiLift™ Vaginal Resurfacing

Michelle Birkenholz

FemiLift™ is a fractional CO2 laser device that provides an innovative, minimally invasive treatment for vaginal resurfacing. This can improve painful intercourse associated with vaginal atrophy (thinning of the vaginal walls related to a lack of estrogen, either related to menopause or treatment for breast cancer) as well as urinary incontinence (involuntary loss of urine). In a quick 15 minute procedure with minimal discomfort, essentially no post-treatment down time and near immediate results, the vaginal tissues can be gently stimulated to enhance functionality. The FemiLift™ causes fractional ablation of the vaginal tissues and, through a process called neocollagenesis, stimulates regrowth of the epithelium (vaginal lining) to become thicker and more youthful with improved moisture and tone. This is an innovative treatment that provides a non-hormonal and non-surgical option for women with painful intercourse and urinary incontinence related to thinning vaginal tissues. Please contact our office to schedule a consultation to further discuss the impressive benefits of the FemiLift™ procedure and how it may enhance your quality of life.
