FemiLift by Alma® Lasers is an FDA-cleared treatment that tightens and tones vaginal tissues using controlled CO2 laser technology. By delivering fractionated light and thermal energy, FemiLift triggers tissue contraction and collagen rebuilding to help the vaginal wall become thicker and stronger.
This treatment isn’t intended to have a tightening effect (though you may notice subtle improvement); it targets urinary incontinence, vaginal dryness, and alleviating painful intercourse. The laser makes controlled micro injuries along the vaginal wall, which encourages an increase in blood flow and triggers the body’s natural healing process.
Is FemiLift painful?
You will likely feel a warming sensation or a small amount of pressure, but the laser created micro injuries are not painful. Most describe the procedure as much more comfortable than a routine pap smear.
Following the procedure, some women may experience mild cramping for a day or two, but this is generally mild and subsides quickly.
Is there downtime after the procedure?
You can return to normal activities following treatment. However, avoid baths, hot tubs, tampons and vaginal sexual intercourse for three days after your treatment to allow your body time to heal.
How many treatments are needed?
A FemiLift package consists of a series of three treatments spaced approximately four weeks apart, followed by an annual treatment to maintain results. Each treatment lasts approximately 10 to 15 minutes.
Your provider will advise that you do regular pelvic floor exercises to obtain optimal results.
