We all know that estrogen is the principle hormone behind vaginal health. Deficiency of this hormone leads to a variety of physical changes in the vulva, vagina and urethra. These include vaginal dryness, burning, irritation, painful intercourse, as well as urinary symptoms of involuntary urine leakage, urgency, painful urination and recurrent infections. These symptoms may worsen with time compromising sexual function and the quality of life.
Laser vaginal rejuvenation has been shown to be safe and effective in treating the vulvo-vaginal as well as urinary conditions of menopause, increasing sexual function and improving the quality of life.
Femilift is CO2 fractional laser that works on the vaginal walls through a special robotic probe. It creates very fine micro-lesions that trigger the production of new collagen, which in turn reorganizes and regenerates the components of the vaginal mucosa and the urogenital structures.
Tissue regeneration and remodeling is triggered with each laser treatment. Significant improvements can be seen after 3-4 weeks of the first treatment. Vaginal pH is corrected, which helps to maintain the natural protective barrier and reduce the risk of infections. The vaginal epithelium becomes thicker, more toned and elastic. Tone of urethral sphincter is improved with each session and urinary complaints of incontinence are very well taken care of. Overall sexual function is improved but laser vaginal rejuvenation in itself cannot guarantee a heightened sexual response because desire, arousal and orgasm are complex and highly personal responses.
