Can a Laser Improve Your Side Effects of Menopause?

A painless laser treatment for your most intimate body part can reboot your intimate life post-menopause!

While your post-menopausal years often bring greater freedom and free time at home, this stage of life introduces physical changes in and to your body that can affect your intimacy.  It’s a well-known fact that your estrogen levels take a nose-dive during the menopause (defined as not having had a cycle within 12 months) and the years leading up to it (peri-menopause).  In fact, more than one-third of women in perimenopause or who are post-menopausal, report having sexual difficulties, including less desire and difficulty in becoming aroused, and 50% report vaginal dryness, itching and burning. Although the complaint of “hot flashes” is one of the most well-known (and joked about) symptoms of menopause, one of the most overlooked symptoms is the decrease in sex and intimacy.  Aside from the possible psychological symptoms (depression, anxiety, etc.) that can affect intimacy, there are many physical symptoms that can affect the vagina, making sex painful. The uterus can also prolapse and lead to discomfort, painful sex and urinary leakage.

Many women will manage these symptoms through hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and surgery (bladder sling for leakage). However, HRT is not an option for many cancer survivors or women who are uncomfortable adding that health regimen into their lives.  Fortunately, for women seeking to improve their bladder leakage without surgery or their intimate life without hormones, several new lasers have been introduced in the United States during the past five years, including the fractional CO2 laser, FemiLift, which is now available at Premier Vein & Body by Schwartz, located in Kansas City!

What is FemiLift?

FemiLift is a non-hormonal laser treatment for women with vaginal dryness due to decreasing hormone levels at midlife or postpartum. It is a gentle CO2 energy-based treatment designed to rejuvenate the vaginal tissue, naturally restore collagen and elastin, and improve the blood supply.   FemiLift uses precision laser technology via a probe that is inserted into the vagina (much like an ultrasound probe) and rotated 360 degrees, micro-ablating the vaginal tissue to break down old collagen and stimulate your body to produce new healthy collagen and elastin. The vaginal tissue also develops new blood vessels that allow for increased lubrication and better vaginal health over all.   The benefits usually begin to emerge within hours and continue to improve in the weeks that follow.  A series of three treatments spaced four to six weeks apart is recommended for optimal results, and an annual treatment is recommended to preserve vaginal integrity.
