For all women of a certain age, estrogen and collagen production declines. Skin wrinkles and sags, and we begin to look older. Not only does aging affect your appearance on the outside but also your most intimate areas. Vaginal atrophy, when the skin becomes thin, dry, and sunken results in a heavy, sagging feeling, itching, mild urinary incontinence, and painful sex. Common causes of atrophy are:
- Menopause: ovaries naturally decrease estrogen levels with age
- Removal of ovaries via hysterectomy surgery
- Medications that lower estrogen, used to treat fibroids or endometriosis
Treatments for Vaginal Atrophy
Your doctor may prescribe estrogen therapy to alleviate symptoms of vaginal atrophy. There are a few options, a pill, cream, suppositories, skin patch or vaginal ring. But these treatments need daily or weekly upkeep, and many are not even an option for women that cannot take estrogen hormone therapy. Women with
- Unexplained vaginal bleeding
- Liver disease
- Breast cancer
- Endometrial cancer
- Risk or history of blood clots
Are all ineligible for estrogen therapy. Without this treatment, there were essentially no other options until recently.
FemiLift Vaginal Tightening Laser Treatment
FemiLift uses a C02 laser wand within the vaginal canal, and using thermal heat, simultaneously firms vaginal tissue while promoting collagen production for natural lubrication. Because of FemiLift’s ability to tighten the vaginal structure, the vaginal laser treatment also cures mild urinary incontinence.
The natural and minimally invasive method was recently approved by the F.D.A. and has had successful results with many women in the U.K. New to American women, the treatment provided by Dr. Kowalski of NVSCC in Las Vegas offers this revolutionary option to women that had no other choices than a painful, costly vaginoplasty in years past.
FemiLift’s painless treatment takes about ten minutes and has no side effects or recovery time. Dr. Kowalski along with other FemiLift experts order you to refrain from sexual intercourse for four days after your treatment, but otherwise, FemiLift does not impede your lifestyle, and only improves it.
