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.

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.

A series of 3 treatments is recommended

FemiLift CO2 Laser Vaginal Tightening is performed as an in office 15 minute procedure with no downtime. a series of 3 treatments 4 weeks apart is recommended. You would then benefit from one LVT annually.

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.

Thank you for your question.
FemiLift or Laser Vaginal Rejuvination is a procedure which need to be customized to your condition and for what purpose you are doing it. You will need between one to three procedure.
Mean while if you might want to augment this procedure with Oshot or PRP ( Platelet Rich Plasma ), depends on your condition and what you are looking for to achieve.
Good Luck and Best of Health

How many FemiLift treatments will I need?

We only offer FemiLift as a series of 3 treatments, spread apart at 4 week intervals. We do offer a 4th treatment at no additional charge any time within 90 days of the 3rd treatment. We recommend to our patients that they have an annual "maintenance" FemiLift treatment to maintain their gains. We do also pair the Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) O-Shot treatments with FemiLift in many cases. We believe that the PRP treatment results are complimentary  to the FemiLift treatments.

Number of treatments

We usually recommend 3 treatment each 5-6 weeks apart.   However, if at the end of 3 treatment an additional treatment is deemed necessary then we do not charge the fourth treatment and offer it as a courtesy.
