FemiLift

FEMILIFT™–AN INNOVATIVE SOLUTION FOR INTIMATE CONCERNS

AgeDefy is a caring, supportive place where women can feel comfortable addressing sensitive health issues. We offer a full range of medical and elective procedures, including the new FemiLift treatment for intimate rejuvenation.

 

FemiLift is a breakthrough, noninvasive treatment for mild to moderate vaginal changes due to childbirth or age. This procedure, pioneered by Alma Lasers, utilizes thermal energy in a pixel CO2 laser wand to gently stimulate production of collagen and elastin in the vagina. This improves tissue tone and elasticity to alleviate discomfort, dryness, and urinary incontinence. The physical benefits alone make FemiLift an important development in women’s health, but the positive impact it can have on self-confidence, improved marital relations, and overall wellbeing adds immeasurable value to this new treatment option.

MORE REASONS TO CONSIDER FEMILIFT

  • FDA-approved, with thousands of successful applications
  • Minimally invasive, virtually painless treatment of pelvic health problems
  • No post-procedure downtimes
  • Excellent patient satisfaction and long-term results

SIMPLE PROCEDURE, SIGNIFICANT RESULTS

Dr. Joi Davis is the first physician in Wisconsin to offer FemiLift for safe, painless, and significant improvement with just three 15-minute treatments. “I am impressed with the results we are seeing with even the first treatment,” says Dr. Davis. Maximum benefits are achieved in a few months, as the repair process continues over time. Although results can last for years, annual treatments may be necessary to offset natural aging.

 

“The procedure does require careful patient selection, so I feel that my 22 years of experience as an OB/GYN is important for success,” explains Dr. Davis. FemiLift is an excellent alternative to estrogen therapy or surgery, and a simple solution for improving quality of life for the millions of women who struggle silently with these common but uncomfortable symptoms.

FAQS ABOUT FEMILIFT

Below are the answers to some of our most frequently asked questions.  We encourage you to contact us if you have any additional questions.

WHAT IS FEMILIFT?

Femilift is a FDA approved pixel CO2 laser for vaginal remodeling. It is indicated for women with mild to moderate vaginal relaxation, mild to moderate stress urinary incontinence, and vaginal dryness. It also can enhance sexual sensation for both partners.

HOW DOES FEMILIFT WORK?

Femilift works by superficially heating the vaginal tissue, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. This increases the tone and elasticity of the vagina. Unlike surgery, it is painless and non-invasive. It is performed in an outpatient setting with no downtime.

WHAT ARE THE EFFECTS OF REMODELING OF THE VAGINAL TISSUE?

Childbirth, hormonal changes, weight changes and aging contribute to weakness and thinning of the vaginal tissue and bladder. Femilift treatment increases collagen remodeling therefore improving the tightness, firmness and lubrication of the vagina. Sexual experience and symptoms of stress urinary incontinence are significantly improved. There is also enhanced vaginal lubrication and reduction of pain with intercourse.

HOW DEEP DOES THE LASER PENETRATE THE TISSUES DURING TREATMENT?

The laser penetrates.about 300 microns (0.03 mm) in depth. This is enough to penetrate the superficial layer (epidermis) of the vagina. This recruits new elastin and collagen production.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NECESSARY?

Patients have 3 treatments 1 month apart and 6 month follow up visit. At this time, it is recommended patients have single annual treatment to maintain results. Results and timing of maintenance treatments will vary individually.

WHO IS A CANDIDATE?

Any woman who wants to improve vaginal lubrication, sexual satisfaction and or mild to moderate urinary stress incontinence (from laughing, sneezing, coughing, some exercise). This is great alternative for women wanting to avoid use of estrogen and surgery. The procedure would not be performed during pregnancy or breast feeding. However, it can be performed 3 months after delivery or pelvic surgery. This allows the natural healing of the body to occur.

WHAT PREPARATIONS ARE NECESSARY BEFORE STARTING TREATMENTS WITH FEMILIFT?

Patients should have a pelvic exam within the past year. Pap smear should be normal and up to date according to current guidelines and personal history. Patients should not have any active vaginal infections, including HSV or HPV, at the time of treatment. No vaginal bleeding present. Pregnancy should be ruled out.

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?

Most patients report NO side effects during or after the treatment. Some women may experience a light discharge for a day or two after the procedure. Others report mild warmth or tingling in the pelvis lasting no longer than a few days. To date, there have been no adverse events reported using the Alma Femilift.

IS IT SAFE?

Yes! This procedure is non-invasive and pain free for women. There is no sedation or anesthetic needed for this procedure. Each patient has their own probe cover used during their procedures. The laser treatment does not cause vaginal infections. No vaginal or pelvic traumas, including burns, have been reported with use of Alma Fernilift laser worldwide since 2011.

HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?

The procedure itself only takes 10-15 minutes and requires no downtime.

The results of Femilift vary from woman to woman but generally last 1 year or longer. It is important to continue kegal exercises even after treatment. Women may benefit from additional annual treatments.

WHEN WILL RESULTS BE NOTED?

Most patients sense tighter vaginal walls, improved lubrication and less urine leakage almost immediately after the 1st or 2nd procedure. However the repair process continues for the weeks following the Femilift treatments. As with other laser procedures, collagen remodeling continues to rejuvenate tissue up to 4-6months after treatment.

ARE THERE ANY RESTRICTIONS?

There is no downtime. Routine physical activity and exercise can be immediately resumed following Femilift treatment. Tampons should not be used for 3 days following the treatment.

HOW LONG AFTER FEMILIFT TREATMENT CAN INTERCOURSE BE RESUMED?

Intercourse can be resumed 3 days after the procedure.

CAN THE FEMILIFT PROCEDURE BE PERFORMED WHILE TAKING OR USING ANY FORM OF BIRTH CONTROL?

Yes. It can be performed with all types of birth control including coils, implants or IUD. It can also be performed after a hysterectomy.
