About our FemiLift™
Many sexually active women suffer from decreased sensation due to advanced age or childbirth. This often leads to a lack of personal self-esteem or problems in the bedroom. Unfortunately, some patients are too uncomfortable to discuss these issues with their physicians. At Greater Hartford Urology Group, our practice is pleased to offer a solution in the form of laser vaginal tightening. The FemiLift™ Fractional CO2 laser treats patients with mild to moderate feminine health issues without invasive surgery.
So, what is a FemiLift procedure, and how does this vaginal tightening treatment work?
When you visit with board-certified urologist Dr. Erica Lambert, we can explain the process in full and determine if FemiLift can restore your wellness once again. If you are interested in finding out about FemiLift benefits and nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation, we invite you to contact our office in Hartford, CT for a consultation. FemiLift treatment is known to be safe and effective for most adult women.
What Is a FemiLift Procedure?
So, what is a FemiLift procedure? FemiLift is a breakthrough technology that can improve issues related to vaginal atrophy and restore the function of the vagina. To complete the procedure, Greater Hartford Urology Group uses specialized CO2 lasers manufactured by Alma Lasers, a worldwide leader of aesthetic procedures. This technology is designed to deliver thermal energy and fractionated light and stimulates a healing response in the tissue. Dr. Lambert can perform FemiLift laser treatments to tighten the delicate tissue for better feminine health.
Candidates For Nonsurgical Vaginal Rejuvenation
Do you suffer from painful sexual intercourse, a shift in hormones due to menopause or stress urinary incontinence? Some doctors recommend pelvic floor exercises or other at-home remedies to strengthen the vaginal area. Other times, invasive surgery is recommended to restore the tissue. If these options have not shown much success or if you are not interested in surgery, you may qualify for laser vaginal tightening at Greater Hartford Urology Group in Hartford, CT.
To be considered a candidate for FemiLift treatment, patients need to have a recent exam. This is because problems, such as infections or vaginal discharge, need to be addressed prior to the procedure. Please inform Dr. Lambert about your full medical history, including any previous pelvic surgeries. It is recommended to wait at least three months after childbirth to schedule FemiLift.
Vaginal tightening treatment may be effective for women with the following concerns:
- Vaginal tissue atrophy
- Vaginal dryness and itchiness
- Painful sexual intercourse
- Stress urinary incontinence
- Recurring urinary tract infections
How We Perform Laser Vaginal Tightening
FemiLift treatment is performed during multiple office visits at Greater Hartford Urology Group in one of our comfortable treatment rooms. To begin nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation, a thin FemiLift probe is inserted into the vagina. There is generally no need for sedatives or anesthesia since this treatment, typically, does not cause pain or discomfort. The probe has a 360-degree rotation capability and delivers pulses of laser energy in precise, controlled amounts. Dr. Lambert can perform the procedure in less than 15 minutes.
What Happens After FemiLift Treatment
The great news is that vaginal tightening with Femilift does not require any extended downtime. Patients can return to their daily activities following the treatment. This makes FemiLift a convenient alternative to surgery. Keisha, a knowledgeable member of Dr. Lambert’s team, will give you a short list of instructions and guidelines to follow at home. To receive full FemiLift benefits and avoid future complications, we ask that you avoid inserting anything into your vagina for three days.
Because each patient has their own goals for treatment, Dr. Lambert will let you know what to expect during treatment. While most women feel marked improvement after only one session, we usually suggest three sessions spaced four weeks apart to deliver the best possible outcome. After these appointments, patients should notice a decrease in stress urinary incontinence and vaginal dryness. Long-term benefits also include the tightening of the vaginal tissues.
