Q

Is there any downtime following my vaginal rejuvenation procedure?

Q

How do I know if I am a good candidate for laser vaginal tightening?

A
Laser Vaginal Tightening is safe for most women, including those with other vaginal concerns such as pelvic relaxation, vaginal prolapse, stress urinary incontinence, endometriosis, and pelvic pain. It is ideal for women who have recently given birth and are breastfeeding, especially if they want to have more children. It is recommended to wait 3 months after childbirth to have the procedure. Women may use all forms of birth control including an IUD, or have had previous pelvic surgery such as a vaginal repair or hysterectomy.
Q

Am I a candidate if I’m post-menopausal and will I get relief from my vaginal dryness?

A
Laser Vaginal Tightening is ideal for the post-menopausal woman. The FemiLiftTM promotes collagen production and remodeling in the vagina which in turn results in a return of the rugae, or architecture, that is lost with menopause. Women report improved lubrication and a decrease in pain associated with penetration. There is a return of a more youthful vagina.
Q

Are there any side effects I should know about?

A
Women should be prepared to experience increased vaginal sensation and pleasure following each treatment. Vaginal lubrication may improve and orgasms may become more intense. Associated risks are minimal. Some women may experience a watery discharge or spotting for a day or two. Any concerns you may have will be discussed during your consultation.
