The FemiLift is a fractionated CO2 laser. This minimally invasive and painless procedure is recommended in the following situations:

  • Genital Atrophy (post-menopause or following medication in patients with a history of breast cancer)
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Vaginal looseness (after giving birth)
  • Stress incontinence
  • A minor prolapse
  • To improve the appearance of the labia
  • To improve sexual satisfaction

How does the FemiLift work?

This Pixel CO2 laser (profractional and fractionated) can be used inside the vagina (profractional) and outside the vagina in on the labia (fractionated). The FemiLift causes regeneration in the vaginal mucous membrane which causes it to thicken and tighten. The mucous membrane is a tissue which is especially easy to rejuvenate. The use of PRP (platelet-rich plasma) on the tissue post-treatment promotes healing.

In general, we use a series of 3 procedures carried out every 4 weeks.

You should note that, contrary to popular belief, these treatments cause very little discomfort.

What results can I expect with regards to vaginal atrophy and dryness?

The FemiLift CO2 laser allows the vaginal mucous membrane to rearrange itself by stimulating the production of elastin and collagen. This happens gradually through the body’s capacity to regenerate. This process will evolve over 12-18 months and this will give results that will which last over time.

The presence of a supple and thick vaginal mucous membrane allows better lubrification and more comfort during sexual relations, as well as in day-to-day activities. Your sexual satisfaction will also increase, for both female and her male partner.

What results can I expect with regards to urinary incontinence?

So, the FemiLift is the treatment of choice to use before surgical intervention is considered in cases of stress urinary incontinence, cases of mixed urinary incontinence and even in cases of urinary urgency incontinence. It should be noted however that patients with urinary urgency respond to treatment in just under 71% of cases. Mixed incontinence responds to treatment in 83% of cases.

What results can I expect with regards to vaginal tightening?

The use of the Femilift laser technology increases the pressure in the vaginal area at rest and when contracted. This may be used alone or in combination with Kegel exercises. Here are the results obtained in a study which was published in 2015.

What results can I expect with regards to the appearance of the labia minora and the labia majora?

The use of difference different energies on the labia majora and the labia minora gives us an alternative to surgical nymphoplasty. Age, giving birth, hormonal changes and sometimes even just congenital issues, can lead to women not being satisfied with the appearance of the vulva. Surgical options are invasive, whereas going down the technological path opens the door to changes which women could not have hoped for before.

At Dermaskin, we combine monopolar radiofrequency and defocused CO2 laser to achieve impressive results. A series of 3-6 treatments is required, 7-10 days apart.

What results should I expect with regards to my sexual satisfaction and my partner’s?

A thin vaginal mucous membrane, which does not provide much lubrication, will definitely result in reduced sexual satisfaction. However, even in patients who do not present with sexual problems, densifying the vaginal mucous membrane, in particular in the G-spot area, will bring about an improvement in sexual satisfaction. Moreover, injecting the clitoral area with filling agents can also be used to increase pleasure.
