The FemiLift is a safe procedure with no "down-time". The patient can immediately resume work and daily activities. It requires no anesthesia and has mild-zero discomfort.

FemiLift Safety

Yes. FemiLift is a safe, FDA-approved procedure. It helps with a number of issues including dryness, mild urinary incontinence, urgency, and dyspareunia (painful intercourse).   Most patients require three monthly treatments.  Treatments are painless and only take 10 minutes.   Please see an experienced physician for an evaluation.

Femilift safe?

The Femilift procedure is very safe as long as it is done in the candidate based on the protocols of the company.  The risk of injury to the vaginal canal or urethra is nearly zero and the results are fantastic.
Our patients are extremely happy with their procedure.

Best of luck

Safety of femilift

Although there is risk with any procedure there is very little risk of excessive scar tissue or desensitization with the FemiLift, Mona Lisa or ThermiVa devices. FemiLift™ and Mona Lisa™ procedures use CO2 laser technology and the ThermiVa™ uses RF (radiofrequency) to shrink vaginal tissue and increase lubrication if dryness is a problem. The tightening is often sufficient to improve or correct urinary stress incontinence and/or mild cystoceles. The procedure is done in office and requires little or no post procedure down time.
The advantages are :
  • Minimally invasive, virtually painless procedure
  • Gentle treatment for controlled safety and accuracy
  • Maximum precision with Alma CO2 laser, the right wavelength and perfect pulse
  • Fast and efficient delivery of fractionated laser energy split into micro pixels
  • No post treatment downtime
  • Excellent patient satisfaction and long term success The Disadvantage of the FemiLift and MonaLisa is that is is only for vaginal treatment whereas the ThermiVa RF device can be used to shrink the labia minora as well and is more comfortable. These procedures cannot narrow the vaginal canal as much as a vaginoplasty surgery

Safe and Non-Invasive

Femilift is a comfortable and non-invasive treatment tightens the vagina and strengthens the supporting ligaments surrounding the bladder and urethra.

Is FemiLift Safe?

FemiLift nonsurgical vaginal resurfacing for vaginal rejuvenation, vaginal tightening, mild urinary incontinence and menopausal vaginal atrophy is very safe. The laser energy is much lower than that used for laser peels of the face. Also, since the skin of the vaginal canal lacks pigmentation, the risk of burns is negligible.

Low Risk, High Return

The FemiLift procedure is very safe.  It is an FDA approved procedure, which basically means that the laser does what it is supposed to do, with little to no risk to the patient.  The risks the procedure presents are minimal- infection, bleeding, swelling. The results are many-fold, decreased to eliminated urinalysis stress incontinence, increased lubrication and greater sexual stimulation for both partners.  Some patients even report an aesthetic improvement of their labia, making vaginoplasty almost obsolete

At our practice, we screen our patient to make sure that they are not at risk for infection.  We also pre-treat  our patients who have a history of the herpes virus, as any inflammation may cause an outbreak.  

After performing the procedure on many patients, we have not seen any side effects, other than mild spotting for a day or two. And all of our patients have reported a very high level of satisfaction with the results from FemiLift,  and this is clearly demonstrated by the positive patient reviews on this website.

FemiLift safety

Yes, the FemiLift is a very safe procedure when done by those who are properly trained.  The incidence of side effects is very low.  Most women find they may have some vaginal discharge for a few days following the procedure, but no discomfort during or after the procedure.

S FemiLift a safe procedure?

Very common question everyone ask.
The Answer to your question is a big YES.
FemiLift is a FDA approved Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation procedure , where a Fractionated CO2 Laser is being used to increase Collagen and Elastin in subcutaneous tissue of vagina. As result vagina feels tighter and more lubricated. This is an excellent procedure for patients with Atrophic Vagina, or ladies who leaks urine specially after giving birth or do not feel their partner as before.
The only Side effect you will notice post procedure is some mild vaginal discharge for few days, which is the sludge of the dead tissue. We do suggest nothing in the vagina for 3-5 days post procedure.
When you are having your procedure make sure you do not have monilia vaginits, nor have an IUD in place, nor you had mesh placed surgically in past.
Good luck and best of Health.
