Premier Vein & Body by Schwartz in Kansas City is owned and operated by Dr. Craig Schwartz, a triple board-certified surgeon.

What is FemiLift?

FemiLift is a cutting-edge laser treatment for women of all ages who desire to reclaim their intimate health and well-being while they suffer through some of the effects that menopause can create.  The Alma® FemiLift Pixel CO2 laser system is used to apply laser energy to the internal vaginal walls, which strengthens the tissue and enhances the development of collagen and elastin, making the area firmer and healthier without the use of any hormones.

Although menopause brings many undesirable health challenges to so many women, cancer patients and survivors can have extra challenges during this time, as Chemotherapy and other cancer treatments often have side effects that are rarely talked about, such as vaginal atrophy.  Vaginal atrophy is a devastating condition that causes vaginal itching and burning, along with painful intimate relations. Many breast cancer survivors are frustrated and unaware of their options.  Although topical estrogen or hormone replacement therapy can help many menopausal women, it is not a viable option for those who have battled, or are currently battling, breast cancer.  Until recently, there has been no realistic option to solve this frustrating problem – until the FemiLift laser treatment!

How Does Femilift Work?

An inserted wand delivers laser energy to the vaginal wall, causing the tissue to firm and thicken, and also triggering improved blood flow. This healthier tissue produces more of its own natural lubrication, and the vaginal walls become stronger and more resilient, making intimacy comfortable again. 

The laser energy stimulates healing in the vaginal tissues and also stimulates collagen and elastin development. These structural proteins will enhance the health of the vaginal walls and increase strength and thickness even more over time. 

FemiLift even addresses incontinence issues by strengthening the tissues that help support the bladder. With better support, leaks and sudden, strong urges will become less frequent or disappear altogether. 

How Does FemiLift Help Women With Breast Cancer?

Many breast cancer treatments involve manipulating estrogen, which can help control the growth of cancer but can wreak havoc on other estrogen-dependent systems in the body. Women with breast cancer deserve a life of healthy intimacy and self-confidence that FemiLift can help give them. 

Many women in menopause choose some form of hormone replacement therapy to treat issues related to estrogen, including the decline of vaginal tissue health. However, for many women with a history of breast cancer, hormone replacement therapy is not an option. Femilift requires no hormones at all and safely provides vaginal rejuvenation – even for breast cancer patients and women who cannot use estrogen therapy. 

What Results Can I Expect?

While many women see improvements after just one treatment, we recommend three treatments, each scheduled four to six weeks apart to allow for full collagen and elastin development to start. Treatment will last about a year, at which point we recommend that women return for annual maintenance treatments to keep their excellent results. 

Am I a Good Candidate for FemiLift?

Although FemiLift is ideal for all menopausal women who desire an improvement in their feminine health, it’s especially helpful to women who have either survived breast cancer or are currently undergoing breast cancer treatment.  FemiLift offers entirely hormone-free, long-lasting vaginal rejuvenation for all patients seeking relief.
