Most people who are concerned about the effects of the aging process on our skin and bodies have heard of collagen. Collagen is an organic compound containing amino acids that are responsible for maintaining the structure of connective tissue such as ligaments, bones and skin.
As we age, collagen slowly begins to break down and our bodies’ ability to replace this damaged collagen dwindles. This is what causes a downward drooping of facial characteristics, wrinkles, age spots and lines.
The vaginal tissue area begins to suffer from this lack of healthy collagen as well. This condition can be made worse from the aftereffects of childbirth. Surgery, hysterectomies, obesity and bad habits like smoking can aggravate this condition. These lead to diminished elasticity and the ability of the vaginal tissue to recoil after being stretched. A lack of sexual fulfillment for women and their partners is often the result. Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI), a disorder that causes urinary leakage while laughing, sneezing and coughing, is another symptom of damage in the vaginal region.
FemiLift is a new cutting-edge skin resurfacing procedure that can tighten the vaginal tissue and surrounding areas. As the FemiLift procedure is developed over time, there is enormous potential for the advancement of vaginal procedures that can improve the quality of life and self-confidence of women.

The FemiLift procedure utilizes the Alma CO2 Laser for maximum accuracy and precision. The Alma CO2 Laser has been successfully used to counteract the effects of aging on the skin. The light that the laser emits penetrates the skin with tiny thermal channels. It produces an intense vaporizing effect on only these channels without disturbing the surrounding areas. This is what is called a micro-injury. The tissue around the micro-injury begins the healing process, leading to faster healing and recovery. The FemiLift procedure only takes about 30 minutes.
The probe on the laser features a 360 degree rotation, which adds to the accuracy and precise nature of the procedure.
The thermal heating of the inner layers of the vaginal tissue is what eventually leads to the regeneration of elastin and proteins in the treated area. It triggers the natural wound healing process of the body’s immune system. The end result is a complete and long-lasting rehabilitation of the vaginal tissue due to the creation of new, firm and stringy collagen fibers that tighten and elasticize the vaginal area while increasing muscle tone. There is also a strong potential for an increase in pleasurable sensations during sexual intercourse. FemiLift also alleviates Stress Urinary Incontinence and vaginal dryness.
Since FemiLift is a pain free operation, there is no need for any kind of sedation. It’s performed by gynecologists, actual professionals in this medical field, and there is no down time necessary in order to completely recover.
Collagen breakdown can be caused by many other factors including obesity. It happens to most women, but some feel it more than others. The FemiLift procedure is a proven, readily-available solution to the problems it can cause.
