What is FemiLift?

Depleted  hormones due to either the natural female aging process or the effects of certain surgeries (looking at you, hysterectomy), can lead to many issues affecting vaginal health, including dryness (atrophy), laxity and even bladder leakage (urinary incontinence). These conditions will never approve on their own and leave many feeling insecure and often increase your risk of infection, such as UTIs. These conditions will never improve on their own. The good news is that there is a non-hormonal FDA-approved laser treatment called FemiLift that is proven to treat these specific conditions by restoring collagen in the vaginal area!

How FemiLift Works

During a FemiLift treatment, which is performed by triple-board certified Dr. Craig Schwartz in the comfort and convenience of his office, a vaginal-shaped probe is inserted into the vagina, delivering CO2 fractional Laser Pixel technology directly to the area. As soon as the laser makes its way to the inner tissues of your vagina, it allows collagen and elastin to contract so that it can stimulate their regeneration. 

After three initial treatments that span over 12 weeks, you will enjoy optimal results – in and out of the bedroom.  A simple annual maintenance treatment is all that is required to maintain them! You’ll notice a tightening of all vaginal walls leading to increased pleasure during sexual intimacy and even a possible reversal of vaginal atrophy. The FemiLift device can be adjusted to meet various levels of intensity and movement so that you’re as comfortable as possible during the treatment. 

Believe it or not, a single FemiLift session only takes 15 minutes to complete and offers immediate results. Once you undergo FemiLift, you may resume work and your daily activities right away. We will ask you however, to wait 24 hours before you return to exercise and 72 hours before you get back to sexual activity.

Benefits of FemiLift

FemiLift offers a gentle, safe, and powerful approach to vaginal rejuvenation. It’s an FDA-approved treatment that offers a long list of benefits. If you undergo FemiLift, you may enjoy enhanced sexual gratification and sensation, improved bladder control, and a vagina that feels tighter and more youthful. FemiLift may also reduce the symptoms of stress urinary incontinence as well as the risk of UTIs and recurrent infections.

Good Candidates for FemiLift

Menopausal women are, by far, our happiest FemiLift patient! However, even younger women who have experienced changes to their vaginal health post-childbirth appreciate the improvements to their vaginal looseness and atrophy. Many women of all ages have been able to avoid surgery in the case of stress urinary incontinence (bladder leakage), although more extreme cases of prolapse may still require more advanced treatment. Most rewarding, though, is FemLift’s ability to help improve the vaginal health and sexual life of many cancer survivors who are unable to use hormones that can provide some relief for some of the symptoms. 

Patients who are pregnant, breastfeeding, suffering from active herpes or another active infection, or have keloid scarring should avoid FemiLift. During a private consultation in our office, Dr. Schwartz can answer your questions and determine if FemiLift is right for you.

Frequently Asked Questions About FemiLift

Is FemiLift safe?

Absolutely! In fact, FemiLift is a very safe treatment approved by the FDA. The lasers used in FemiLift have been around for over 30 years. As long as FemiLift is performed by a skilled doctor with the right equipment, you have nothing to worry about. 

How long do FemiLift results last?

FemiLift leads to great results that can last for several years. However, due to the fact that vaginal tissues change with increased laxity, a yearly maintenance treatment is recommended. This can be particularly beneficial if you believe your results have changed. 

Are there any side effects with FemiLift?

Since FemiLift is a non-invasive treatment, there are minimal side effects. After you receive it, you can expect increased sensation and pleasure as well as improved vaginal lubrication and more intense orgasms. Fortunately, risks are minimal and may include spotting or watery discharge for a few days. 

How many FemiLift treatments are necessary?

While everyone is different, we typically recommend 3 treatments over a 12 week period plus a yearly maintenance treatment for optimal results. 

Is FemiLift painful?

One of the greatest benefits of FemiLift is its comfort level. Once you undergo the treatment, you’ll find that it’s painless and brings about minimal to no discomfort. 

How long after childbirth can I receive FemiLift?

FemiLift is a great option if you’re concerned about the effects of childbirth on your vagina. After you give birth, we suggest you wait at least three months before undergoing treatment. This way you can ensure that any scars from tears hav healed properly and yoru vaginal tone has naturally recovered.
