Childbirth and menopause can take a toll on your vaginal tissue. Your vagina can become dry and loose, and you may leak a little urine when you laugh or sneeze. You may even find that intercourse feels painful, especially during penetration, or that you are experiencing less sexual sensation than in the past.
If any of these symptoms are interfering with your quality of life or sexual enjoyment, treatment with the FemiLift laser vaginal tightening system could provide relief. FemiLift is a noninvasive, surgery-free system that uses gentle laser energy to restore the appearance and function of vaginal tissue.
Here at Genesis Cosmetic Laser Center in Florence, South Carolina, board-certified gynecologist Edward O’Dell and his experienced team are pleased to provide FemiLift treatment to women who are suffering from vaginal atrophy symptoms.
How vaginal tissues change
Vaginal atrophy is a condition in which vaginal tissue becomes thinner, drier, or stretched out. It may also become inflamed.
Falling estrogen levels associated with menopause can reduce the flexibility and pliancy of vaginal tissue. Less estrogen may also lead to a reduction in the production of collagen in vaginal tissues. Collagen is a protein found in the tissues of your vagina and skin.
Vaginal childbirth may also affect the condition of vaginal tissues and cause them to become lax.
FemiLift to the rescue
FemiLift is an innovative, state-of-the-art treatment that uses a type of laser energy known as fractional CO2 to penetrate your vaginal tissue.
As the energy from the FemiLIft laser enters your vaginal tissue, it stimulates the production of collagen. An increase in collagen causes your vaginal tissue becomes stronger and more flexible. FemiLift treatment also leads to greater vaginal lubrication, tighter vaginal tissue, and less urine leakage.
