If you’re among the millions of women who suffer from vaginal dryness, no longer are messy lubricants and hormone creams your only treatment options. Dr. Jamie Lipeles and Dr. Hope Vermaire of Marina OB/GYN, located in Marina Del Rey and Hawthorne, California, are among the most experienced OB/GYNs serving women throughout Marina Del Rey, Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach, Venice, Westchester, Playa Vista, Culver City and the greater and South Bay area, who provides long-term relief from vaginal dryness with the ground-breaking FemiLift CO2 laser.
The most common cause of vaginal dryness is a drop in production of the hormone estrogen that accompanies menopause. Vaginal dryness can also occur after childbirth, during breastfeeding, and is a common side effect of chemotherapy.
This revolutionary CO2 laser offers a long-term solution that actually restores a woman’s natural ability to produce moisture, thereby reducing vaginal dryness, itching, and discomfort or pain during sexual intercourse. FemiLift treatment is a quick and pain-free office procedure that requires no anesthesia or downtime. As seen on TV’s “The Doctors,” the procedure takes only 30 minutes. A small, thin probe is inserted into the vaginal canal . It uses thermal heat to improve blood circulation and stimulate collagen production, which promotes thickening and tightening of the vaginal wall tissues and increases elasticity and moisture production. The laser can also be used to shrink the external labia tissue for a more youthful appearance. Most women enjoy immediate improvement but undergo two to three treatments for optimal benefits.
Not at all. In fact, many women who seek CO2 laser treatment at Marina OB/GYN are in their 30s and 40s. Anyone who experiences vaginal dryness and needs to use a lubricant during sex can benefit from this procedure. In addition to improving moisture production, CO2 laser treatment helps with vaginal laxity and stress incontinence that can occur as the result of pregnancy, vaginal birth or excessive weight loss at any age.
As with any medical procedure, it’s imperative to seek a credentialed professional with extensive experience in the specific treatment being sought. Dr. Lipeles’ has performed hundreds of vaginal rejuvenations using the FemiLift CO2 laser with excellent results and patient satisfaction. He thoroughly researched all types of CO2 lasers before selecting the FemiLift, and he personally performs every procedure himself. His practice is also equipped with the very latest FemiLift technology, including the new vaginal camera that shows women before and after photos.

I am actually pregnant again (yay!) and I will be going back to this office throughout my pregnancy. They're amazing, and I had a great experience.
He delivered my baby and both baby and I are healthy. I was up and walking right after the delivery and healed perfectly so I couldn't be happier!
He performed the surgery with a robot so recovery was not bad. His staff was extremely helpful and pleasant.
The staff are amazing, very friendly and helpful. I'm definitely going to keep coming here for check ups and birth control because I love it that much. I would recommend
Nervous about the delivery all the anxiety disappeared the second the doc walked into the room. My hubby loved visiting as much as I did!
Dr. Lipeles was gentle and kind (First Male ObGyn experience for me). He was hilarious with bedside manner and actually had me laughing throughout the entire experience.
