CO2 lasers have been in use for the past 30 years and have shown to be safe and effective for many applications, including gynecology. A similar laser technique is used for skin rejuvenation and reduction of wrinkles of the face. It is mandatory that a trained individual use the equipment. As with any medical intervention, treatment by untrained individuals can lead to excessive scarring or difficulty in passing urine.
FemiLift is not performed during a patient’s menstrual period, as the laser will not achieve optimal results.

The laser probe is inserted into the vagina up to the cervix – about 6-8cm deep. The laser beam travels about 0.05mm (usually about 300-500um) into the vaginal tissue. This is deep enough to reach the level of the sub mucosa where the new collagen is formed.

We do not recommend undergoing treatment with FemiLift. If you are experiencing active or acute vaginal infections.
A specifically designed, single use, sterile disposable probe is used during treatment, which prevents transmission of infections. This is placed on top of a special laser hand piece, which is used to deliver the laser energy (through the disposable probe).
