Women who are experiencing feminine health concerns may be too shy to talk about it, but concerns such as vaginal atrophy, lack of natural lubrication, and stress urinary incontinence are all very common. Some of these concerns may even be caused by natural changes in vaginal tissue due to childbearing or menopause. Fortunately, when you visit Bala Aesthetics & MediSpa in Bel Air, MD, you can discuss using a treatment such as FemiLift for vaginal rejuvenation.
What Are the Benefits of FemiLift Treatment?
FemiLift is an innovative vaginal rejuvenation treatment that can be used by women of all ages to correct concerns related to feminine health. The fact that this treatment is so versatile is one of the major benefits, particularly because women who have complex concerns can use one treatment to address all concerns at one time. Other benefits of this treatment include:
Correct Vaginal Tissue Atrophy
Vaginal tissue atrophy can be caused by childbirth or can simply be a byproduct of the aging process. For example, vaginal tissue can be stretched during natural childbirth, and if you have given birth to multiple children, it becomes more difficult for vaginal tissues to remain elastic. Likewise, as you age, collagen depletion in all body tissues will mean vaginal tissue becomes weaker and thinner.
This treatment specifically encourages collagen production and stimulates blood flow that will prompt the body’s natural regenerative response to rejuvenate vaginal tissues and tighten vaginal muscles. Improving vaginal atrophy can improve other aspects of feminine health.
Improve Natural Lubrication
Women who experience dryness, itchiness, and lack of natural lubrication are often uncomfortable. A lack of natural lubrication can also make intercourse painful. Vaginal dryness is typically a byproduct of menopause, and until now, there have not been many treatments for women to correct the lack of natural lubrication.
However, when blood flow is stimulated in the vaginal tissues, the body also responds by regenerating natural lubrication that will make intercourse more comfortable. Natural lubrication in the vaginal tissues can also reduce other discomforts such as dryness. That said, continuing to use artificial lubrication after this treatment is safe and healthy, and may even make intercourse more comfortable.
Elevate Sexual Satisfaction
This treatment can also be used to elevate sexual satisfaction. Specifically, when blood flow increases in the vagina, the vaginal tissues become more sensitized to stimulation. Along with natural lubrication, sensitized vaginal tissues can also improve orgasm strength or make intercourse more enjoyable. Improving your sexual satisfaction can improve the psychological aspects of your sexual health, as well.
Relieve Stress Urinary incontinence
Stress urinary incontinence is a particular type of bladder urgency that is stimulated by physical stress, such as sneezing, laughing, coughing, or other movements. Stress urinary incontinence is caused by weakened muscles in the vagina, so by tightening these muscles with a feminine rejuvenation laser treatment such as this one, you can greatly reduce incidences of stress urinary incontinence.
Stress urinary incontinence is particularly common in women who have experienced natural childbirth and women who are post-menopausal. Sometimes, stress urinary incontinence may also be paired with other feminine health concerns, such as pelvic prolapse. You will need to be examined by a gynecologist to assess whether this treatment is ideal for relieving your stress urinary incontinence.
Why Should You Consider This Treatment?
There are a few reasons why women may want to consider a vaginal rejuvenation treatment. To be frank, some women may feel a lack of self-esteem associated with painful intercourse, so using a vaginal rejuvenation treatment can go a long way to improving self-confidence. If you want to connect more with your partner through physical intimacy, a vaginal rejuvenation treatment such as this one can be beneficial.
Furthermore, women who are experiencing stress urinary incontinence may also feel shame and self-consciousness about bladder urgency. A treatment such as this one can strengthen the muscles in the vagina, which will reduce urinary incontinence and drastically improve a woman’s self-confidence. Your physician may recommend using this treatment with other urinary incontinence medications to create an effective treatment plan.
How Does This Treatment Work?
This treatment works by using a special CO2 laser to stimulate blood flow, collagen production, and the natural regeneration of tissues in the vagina. Specifically, the laser used for this treatment involves a micro-ablative process, which causes micro-injuries on vaginal tissue that prompts the body’s natural healing response.
In the days after your treatment, your body will respond by producing higher levels of elastin and collagen, which will improve vaginal tightness, sensitivity, and strength. It may take several weeks for you to experience optimal results after this treatment.
How Fast Is This Treatment?
Your appointments will usually only take 15 to 30 minutes to complete. This means this vaginal rejuvenation treatment takes about as long as your average gynecological exam. With this fast treatment, you can immediately go back to work, exercise, or engage in any of your other scheduled activities after your appointment.
How Many Treatments Do You Need?
One of the most impressive things about this treatment is that it can produce results in as little as one treatment. Although the results are not permanent, you will be able to enjoy consistent vaginal tightening results for at least 18 to 24 months after one treatment appointment. After two years, you will be able to schedule another treatment and enjoy more long-lasting results.
That said, women who have stress urinary incontinence may require up to three treatments to see significant results. You will need to discuss the precise number of treatments necessary to achieve ideal results during your consultation.
What Can You Expect During Your Appointment?
This treatment is similar to a gynecological exam. During your treatment, you will be in a private room where the handheld laser device will be inserted into the vagina with a sterile covering. Once inserted, the laser probe will slowly rotate to give vaginal tissue an even distribution of the CO2 laser energy.
How Should You Prepare for Your Treatment?
Before your treatment, you may be asked to complete a basic pap smear or other gynecological exams to ensure you are healthy enough for this treatment. During your consultation, you should provide your full medical history, including medications, supplements, and other treatments you have tried in the past.
On the day of your treatment, please wear comfortable clothing and cotton underwear. You should avoid using douching products or other vaginal cleaning products for at least three to five days before your treatment. You may need to follow other preparation guidelines, such as temporarily discontinuing certain medications.
What Should You Do After Your FemiLift Treatment?
The two most important rules to follow after your treatment is to avoid sexual intercourse or any other sexual activity for at least three to four days to allow your vaginal tissues time to recover. You should also not wear tampons or use douching products for at least a week. Please avoid any soaking baths, hot tubs, or swimming pools for at least three days.
Who Are Good Candidates?
The best candidates for this FemiLift treatment are women who feel self-conscious or distressed about certain feminine health concerns. These concerns can include vaginal dryness, painful intercourse, stress urinary incontinence, or any other structural changes associated with menopause or childbirth. Sometimes, women who have low sexual pleasure can also experience improvements after this treatment.
Who Are Not Good Candidates?
Although there are many good candidates for this feminine rejuvenation treatment, there are also several medical restrictions that may prevent you from using this laser therapy. For example, if you are photosensitive, taking anticoagulants, pregnant, breastfeeding, or have uncontrolled heart disease or diabetes, this treatment may not be right for you.
Additionally, you will have to postpone your treatment if you are currently on your menstrual cycle, or if you have any other type of bleeding, discharge, or infection. Patients who have HPV or STIs will need to undergo treatments before they can use this laser treatment. You may also need to be screened for gynecological cancer before your appointment.
