How many FemiLift treatements are needed

FemiLift produces noticeable improvements after a single session, but maximum improvement after 3 sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart. FemiLift works by stimulating collagen formation, but collagen breaks down over time, so results are temporary and require an annual booster session.

Three Treatments

Femilift is an FDA approved treatment to improve your vaginal health through the stimulation of collagen, improving laxity, atrophy, moisture and urinary incontinence.   It is recommended to have 3 treatments at 1 month intervals.  A yearly treatment is recommended to maintain the results as our body continues to age and breakdown collagen.

CO2 vagina health

A series of  treatment (usually3 ) is  required to achieve desired results.  The improvement in tightness, lubrication and incontinence can be noticeable after the first treatment but continues to improve over time. Maintenance, a year plus  later, is required because  our bodies continue  to change especially after the menopause.

How many Femilift treatments are needed?

A series of 3 treatments, each one month apart, is recommended. Although some results may be noticed in the month after the first treatment, to achieve results as expected long term requires 3 separate treatments.

How Many Femilift Treatments are Needed?

The Femilift is a non-surgical FDA approved treatment using a CO2 laser to rejuvenate the vaginal lining. This helps to improve vaginal tightness, lubrication, sensation and urinary stress incontinence. Generally three treatments are offered one month apart. An annual maintenance treatment may be desired. There is virtually no discomfort and no recovery following each treatment. Many women notice improvement following the first treatment and generally the satisfaction rate is extremely high with this procedure.

Surgical Labiaplasty vs. Laser Rejuvenation

With the availability of recent technology, there are few nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation options available for our patients. CO2 fractionated lasers include the #FemiLift, #MonaLisa Touch and #IntimaLase. The #ThermiVa as radiofrequency energy that can also treat the outer Labia to reduce and tighten this area. It can increase blood flow, sensitivity , and orgasm. It can increase moisture and decrease stress urinary incontinence for many women.
However, surgery is the most common treatment. I perform a variety of treatments and surgeries to enhance, restore and rejuvenate the female genital region. This includes the labia minora, labia majora, the clitoral region and the vestibule of the vagina. When necessary and capable, a vaginoplasty may be combined with a #Labiaplasty. Or, if the outer labia or labia majora may also be excessively large, uneven, or may be too small, the size may be increased with fat injections.

There is no one right solution for all patients, but there is a solution for every woman. The outcome of a Labiaplasty is a more youthful appearance, ability to wear all types of clothing without discomfort and/or embarrassment, and a more confident sex life.  The best procedure approach will be discussed in greater detail during your one-on-one consultation.It is very important to find a surgeon who is #Board Certified for your #labiaplasty.

Although there is risk with any procedure there is very little risk of excessive scar tissue or desensitization with the FemiLift 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

Always Aging!

Alma, the company that designed the FemiLift laser, suggests that a woman have three treatments spaced a month apart, as well as a yearly maintenance treatment.  In our practice, we have found that the women who follow those parameters, tend to have the best results.  That being said, occasionally, a woman may be satisfied with her results after two treatments and every now and then, a woman feels that she would benefit from a fourth treatment.  This is because, each woman is different and every situation is unique, and at V Femina, we like to treat everyone accordingly.

Femilift Treatments

The Femilift treatment is designed to be done three times, each treatment being four weeks apart.  Many patients opt for a fourth treatment although it is not indicated in most cases.  Women also find that a touch up treatment 6 months to one year later helps to maintain the results of the initial series.
