Questions about FemiLift
North Valley Plastic Surgery in the USA answers questions about FemiLift vaginal laser treatment.
What can women expect after the FemiLift treatment?
The enhanced vaginal tone promotes lubrication and blood circulation which improves sexual stimulation. Women that were suffering from urinary incontinence often see an improvement in their symptoms that can be significant enough to forgo corrective surgery.
How long after the treatment do I have to wait to have sex again?
Who can benefit from the medical benefits of the FemiLift?
- Women experiencing urinary incontinence.
- Women experiencing dyspareunia (painful sex).
- Women experiencing atrophic vaginitis (vaginal atrophy).
- Postpartum women experiencing vaginal laxity after childbirth.
- Any woman looking for enhanced sexual sensation, for both herself and her partner.

How long does one FemiLift treatment take?
Each FemiLift treatment lasts approximately 15 to 20 minutes. Your appointment will take about 30 minutes.
How many FemiLift treatments are recommended for optimal results?
Each patient experiences a different level of vaginal laxity, but three treatments spaced about four weeks apart is recommended for optimal results. Additionally, one maintenance treatment every year thereafter is recommended.
When should the patient begin to see results of the vaginal rejuvenation procedure?
Most patients can sense a healthier, tighter vaginal wall immediately. However, the natural repair process will continue to progress during the weeks following the FemiLift treatment. Collagen remodeling takes time and will continue to progress months after treatment. It’s after the third treatment that patients should get their maximum benefit.
How long will the results of the FemiLift procedure last?
As long as the patient follows the instructions of the medical provider, the results are long-lasting, usually several years. Patients are instructed to perform Kegel exercises at home to further expedite and enhance the ongoing tissue remodeling and collagen contraction occurring after treatment.
Does the FemiLift treatment hurt?
Patients will feel comfortable and relaxed during the FemiLift procedure. The procedure is painless but we can give you a topical anesthetic if needed. Patients report almost no discomfort during or after the procedure.
How should patients expect to feel after the FemiLift treatment?
Since increasing vaginal tightness is the goal of the FemiLift procedure, patients should expect vaginal tightness after the treatment. No other side effects should be expected.
When can patients resume normal activity after the FemiLift procedure?
Patients can resume normal activity immediately after the FemiLift treatment, with a couple exceptions. Patients should not have vaginal intercourse or use a tampon within three days after treatment or longer if instructed by the medical provider.
How common is vaginal laxity?
Nearly half of all women who have had vaginal childbirth have some level of concern over vaginal looseness. A worldwide study conducted by OBGYNs recently revealed that vaginal laxity is the number one concern of women after childbirth, even more so than weight gain and stretch marks. Many other middle-aged women experience urinary incontinence and vaginal laxity as a result of the aging process. With the FemiLift procedure, women have a pain-free, non-surgical answer to vaginal laxity.
What is urinary incontinence in women and how can the FemiLift help?
Urinary incontinence is the loss of bladder control, which results in inadvertent urination during low-level stress placed on the bladder, such as laughing, coughing and exercising. It is common in women who have delivered children vaginally. This leaking occurs when the pelvic floor weakens, which causes the urethra to sag. Exercises to restore the pelvic floor, such as Kegels, often are not enough to rejuvenate the pelvic floor. This is where the FemiLift Arizona can help. The fractional CO2 laser energy restores the pelvic floor and counteracts the sagging urethra, which in turn fights incontinence.
