How to Improve Menopause Symptoms Without Taking Hormones

Menopause symptoms can be frustrating and make enjoying life more difficult. While hormones can help, not everyone has this option.  Femilift® can address menopause symptoms without hormones. If you experience vaginal or bladder symptoms related to menopause, Femilift® can help. 

What is Menopause?

Doctors officially diagnose menopause when you have not had a menstrual period in twelve months. However, you may deal with symptoms for years before reaching that point. Aging causes hormone levels in your body to decline. As a result, changes occur throughout the body. Menopause affects everyone differently, but issues with the vaginal area and bladder leakage are among the most common.

What are the Symptoms of Menopause?

While menopause is a natural process, it can have uncomfortable symptoms, including hot flashes, cognitive and emotional changes, and changes to the vaginal area. For many women, these vaginal changes can be one of the most disruptive and challenging parts of menopause. Vaginal symptoms include discomfort during intercourse, lack of lubrication, and loss of tone in the vaginal walls. Bladder leakage is often a related issue that can cause embarrassment or distress. 

How to Improve Menopause Symptoms Without Taking Hormones

Not all women can or want to use hormones during menopause. Many women find relief from many of the physical symptoms of menopause with Femilift®. This laser treatment rejuvenates the vaginal tissues to address age-related changes and restore your healthy, active intimate life. Treatment with Femilift® requires no hormones and does not cause hormonal changes. It can relieve even those who cannot use hormone replacement therapy (HRT) due to breast cancer or other medical conditions. 

How Does Femilift® Work?

Femilift® is a CO2 laser that gently removes old, damaged layers of cells and replaces them with healthy new ones. It also reaches into the deeper layers to stimulate collagen production. This new collagen firms and tightens the vaginal tissues, improving symptoms such as lack of enjoyment or discomfort during intercourse. The rejuvenated vaginal tissues produce more lubrication, put an end to dryness and itching, and can even provide extra support to the bladder for less leakage. The CO2 laser triggers a healing process that can restore your vaginal health and intimate enjoyment. It also improves blood flow to the vaginal tissues to keep them healthy and nourished. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Femilift®?

Most healthy women make good candidates for Femilift®. You may be a good candidate if you want to treat vaginal symptoms of menopause without hormones. You do not need to be in or near menopause to benefit from Femilift®. Many women have the treatment to address the changes to the vagina caused by pregnancy and childbirth. Femilift® can improve vaginal health and function for many women regardless of age. Femilift® offers a hormone-free, safe option for women who are not good candidates for HRT. 

What Can Femilift® Treat?

While hot flashes are among the most well-known symptoms of menopause, loss of vaginal function and intimate enjoyment are also frequent occurrences. While many women hesitate to discuss these issues with their doctor, they respond to treatment. If you experience these problems, Femilift® can help. 

Vaginal Dryness

Vaginal tissues stop producing as much lubrication as you enter menopause. The resulting dryness can cause itching, burning, or discomfort during intercourse. Femilift® improves vaginal lubrication to reverse menopausal dryness. 

Discomfort During Intercourse

Uncomfortable intercourse is a common issue during menopause. Vaginal dryness contributes to the problem, but the vaginal walls can also weaken with age or childbirth. Femilift® triggers collagen production that restores elasticity and firmness for a more enjoyable experience.

Bladder Leakage

When ligaments and muscles around the bladder weaken, you may experience bladder leaks. Femilift® treats this issue by strengthening the vaginal walls, which help support the bladder. This added support can provide you with significant relief from leaks.

How Much is Femilift®?

The cost of Femilift® varies widely depending on your location and your provider’s skill and experience. The national average cost of Femilift® is $2500, but your price may differ. This average may not cover some of the fees and expenses associated with the procedure, so we recommend a consultation to discuss your actual cost. 

Is There Any Downtime with Femilift® for Menopause Symptoms?

Femilift® treatment only takes about 15 minutes. Most people experience no discomfort, and you can immediately return to work or daily activities. You might experience some watery discharge for a day or two. We recommend avoiding baths or hot tubs for three days after treatment. You should also wait three days before using tampons or engaging in intercourse. 

What Results Will I See With Femilift®?

You may see improvements after your first Femilift® treatment. Maximum benefits occur after three treatments spaced four to six weeks apart. Results continue to develop for several weeks as collagen continues to evolve. You will enjoy the benefits of Femilift® for about a year before you need to return for a maintenance treatment.
