Laser technology has revolutionized medicine’s ability to rejuvenate vaginal muscles and tissue without surgery. This ground-breaking technology restores vaginal form and function that can be lost as a woman ages or after childbearing, excessive weight loss, breast cancer treatment, or a hysterectomy. Whatever the cause, vaginal laxity can make it more difficult for a woman and her partner to receive pleasure during intercourse and other sexual activities. Vaginal rejuvenation procedures work to shrink and tighten the tissues through the stimulation of collagen and increasing the amount of moisture available to the vaginal area.
After conducting his own comprehensive research and participating in various clinical studies, Dr. Lipeles chose the FemiLift® laser system. Treatment takes just 30 minutes, is pain-free and does not require anesthesia. A disposable sheath is placed over the laser wand where it emits pulses deep into vaginal tissues. The wand can be rotated so Dr. Lipeles has access to the entire area that is to be worked on. Women can return to their daily activities immediately following the procedure but must refrain from intercourse for four days. This is a major improvement over surgical vaginal rejuvenation which requires four to six weeks of recovery and abstinence. The procedure is performed once a month for three months for optimal benefits.
Women who do not want to go undergo surgery or use estrogen replacement therapies are ideal candidates for this type of rejuvenation therapy. In significantly advanced cases of a loose vagina, the FemiLift may be used in conjunction with estrogen vaginal creams for maximize results. Women who want the results of tissue rejuvenation without the pain, expense or lengthy recovery of surgery. It may also be beneficial for women who have problems with mild incontinence.
