Am I a Good Candidate for the FemiLift treatment?


If you suffer from vaginal symptoms such as vaginal laxity and vaginal dryness, FemiLift may be the answer to your problems. FemiLift is a comfortable, quick, and virtually painless procedure that takes only15 minutes to perform. Women with feminine concerns that can benefit from the procedure are always curious to find out – Am I a good candidate for the FemiLift treatment.

FemiLift Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation
FemiLift is a non-invasive laser vaginal rejuvenation treatment. It uses a fractional CO2 laser to resurface the entire vaginal wall, in order to strengthen existing collagen, and promote production of new collagen. Doctors generally recommend 3 treatments at intervals of 4-6 weeks for optimal results.

The CO2 laser creates a strong ablation and thermal effect in the vaginal tissues, and this stimulates the cells that produce collagen and elastin. There is no post-procedural recovery, so patients can resume normal activitiesright away.

Are you a good candidate for FemiLift
If you suffer from symptoms such as vaginal dryness, vaginal looseness, or stress urinary incontinence, (involuntary leakage of urine when you cough, exercise, or sneeze), you may be a good candidate for FemiLift.

FemiLift is also beneficial for menopausal women who are experiencing changes in the vagina brought on by aging and the subsequent decrease in the hormone estrogen. Menopausal women with symptoms such as pain and discomfort with intercourse, increased infections, and vaginal dryness, are therefore very good candidates for FemiLift.

After FemiLift treatment, most women notice that their vagina is tighter and rejuvenated, and there is an increase in vaginal lubrication, as well as improved sexual sensation. Women with stress urinary incontinence also observe a significant reduction in leakage.

Non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation with the CO2re Intima

As some women age they experience real issues that negatively impact vaginal health. This may be due to factors such as hormonal changes, weight fluctuations, or childbirth. Non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation treatments such as the CO2RE Intima are now available to treat these issues. The CO2RE Intima is a simple laser solution that is specially designed to improve vaginal health.

What is CO2RE Intima?
The CO2RE Intima is a non-surgical laser treatment that rejuvenates the internal and external tissues of the vagina. CO2RE Intima is beneficial for symptoms such as vaginal laxity, vaginal dryness, painful intercourse, and stress incontinence.

CO2RE Intima is a virtually painless procedure that takes about 15 minutes to perform.

How does it rejuvenate the vagina?
The procedure involves the use of a sterile, single-use handpiece that is introduced into the vaginal canal, and delivers controlled laser energy to the tissues. The gentle energy from the CO2 laser works on the deep layers of the skin, and stimulates the cells to produce more collagen. The additional collagen improves moisture levels, and tones and tightens the tissue of the vaginal wall.

What can you expect?
The results of CO2RE Intima are long lasting, and can be seen after the first treatment. However, every patient is different, so treatments are customized, but it typically takes a series of 3 treatments to gain optimal results. Treatments are spaced about 3 weeks apart.

There is no downtime after the procedure, but patients are advised not to have sexual intercourse for at least 7 days.

If you think that the CO2RE Intima treatment may be right for you, contact Belle Vie Wellness and Medical Aesthetics, located in Cerritos, CA, to find out more.

There is help if your vagina is too tight

There is help if your vagina is too tight

Some women have a vagina that is too tight, and this makes intercourse very uncomfortable and undesirable. That’s because it often results in a lot of pain, and so intercourse is no longer enjoyable or pleasurable. In some cases even inserting a tampon can be unbearable. So what should women with this problem do? Help is available from the specialists in vaginal disorders at Fowler Gyn International.

What causes vaginal tightness?

Before a woman starts having intercourse, the vaginal opening may be naturally tight. It’s quite likely that this is because the vaginal covering or hymen has not been disturbed. As a result, even using tampons can be difficult or painful at this stage. However, intercourse will cause the hymen to tear, and this can be a very painful experience for many women. But even after this, many women may still find that their vagina is simply too tight, making intercourse very uncomfortable.

Some women who experience lower estrogen effect at the level of the vaginal   mucosa can experience this problem. Lower vaginal tissue estrogen can occur for a number of reasons including genetics, lower ovarian reserve with age, borderline  body weight or underweight, vigorous exercise, smoking, use of certain types of hormonal birth control and undergoing menopause.

As a result, the vagina shrinks in size, and also becomes drier than normal. When the vagina shrinks, it becomes shorter and narrower.  This happens, because the tissues are not getting the estrogen they need to remain full and elastic.

How to relieve vaginal tightness

In order to get the help you need for this condition, you need to contact a gynecologist. Most are well versed in the treatment of menopausal vaginal dryness and how to effectively treat it. But for other causes, consulting with a specialist in vaginal disorders is the best way to get a solution.

At the Fowler GYN International they offer personalized treatment plans for women suffering with vaginal problems. Using advanced microscopic diagnosis, they are able to identify the cause of vaginal tightness, and tailor an individualized program to remedy the condition.
