How does FemiLift work?
FemiLift can be a perfect treatment for those looking to tone and rebuild the collagen of the vaginal walls. Performed by a trained gynaecologist, FemiLift, involves using a uniquely-designed laser probe enclosed within a single-use tube to protect both the probe and the skin. Using breakthrough CO2 laser technology to carefully heat the tissue, FemiLift contracts existing fibres and helps to stimulate the formation of new collagen. It encourages normal blood flow which can help to restore the strength and elasticity of the vaginal tissue as well as improve incontinence problems.
What are the main concerns FemiLift can help to target?
FemiLift can help to tighten loose vagina walls with out the need for vaginoplasty surgery. This minimally invasive treatment can help to address a wide range of female intimate concerns such as stress urinary incontinence, vaginal dryness and vaginal tightening.
Ideal for those looking for a non-surgical procedure without the downtime or having to take time off, FemiLift can be easily integrated into your everyday healthcare routine. It is designed to help improve lifestyle management for all women, no matter what age.

Step by Step FemiLift
1 NO OBLIGATION CONSULTATION
Initially you need to book a complimentary consultation with one of our highly experienced Treatment Coordinators. They will talk to you about the treatment and take your full medical history and should you decide to proceed with FemiLift your next appointment with the gynaecologist will be booked.
2 MEET YOUR PRACTITIONER
During your meeting with the gynaecologist you will have the time to discuss your medical history and all of your concerns. Our highly experienced and friendly gynaecologist will request your smear test results within the last 18 months. If you haven’t got recent results they will run a Smear test for you the week before your treatment to determine whether you are a suitable candidate for this procedure.
3 BEFORE YOUR TREATMENT
After assessing your Smear test results your gynaecologist will be ready to determine whether you are able to have FemiLift. Before your treatment you will have some time to speak to your gynaecologist for any last minute questions. The treatment doesn’t involve anaesthesia.
4 DURING YOUR TREATMENT
A single-use, sterile, disposable tube will be used deep inside the vagina. The CO2 laser that will be emitted through the probe is the same kind of laser that has been used for many years on facial rejuvenation treatments. Your doctor will be controlling the depth and the amount of laser energy that will be transmitted. The laser can trigger the production of new collagen to achieve the desired tightening effect or correct urinary incontinence. Clients report minimal discomfort during the treatment, however if you feel any pain or sensation during the treatment, the doctor can adjust the laser settings to make it more comfortable.
5 AFTER YOUR TREATMENT
Since it is a non-surgical treatment, downtime is minimal, however, you should expect to experience some tenderness and sensitivity in the area. You should abstain from vaginal intercourse for 5 days and may be asked to avoid strenuous exercise for 3 days. Usually, we recommend a course of 3 treatments with each treatment being four weeks apart.
Is it safe?
FemiLift is a safe, FDA approved treatment. CO2 lasers have been used for the past 30 years and have shown to be safe and effective for many applications including Gynaecology. However to ensure optimum safety and results it is mandatory that the equipment is used by a trained gynaecologist.
Will any form of contraception such as pills, coil or implant interfere with the treatment?
No, there is absolutely no interference with coils, implants and contraceptive pills.
I suffer from vaginal dryness. Will this treatment make it worse?
Many women suffer from vaginal dryness, especially during menopause. FemiLift will not deteriorate vaginal dryness, on the other hand it may help to improve hydration of the area.
How long after giving birth can I undergo treatment?
It would be advisable to wait 3 months after a vaginal birth to ensure the area is fully healed and naturally recovered.
Can I have the treatment while breast feeding?
Yes, FemiLift does not interfere in any ways with breast feeding.
Can I get an infection from this treatment?
Single-use, sterilised, disposable tubes that cover the probe prevent any risk of infection transmission.
Can I have if I am on my period?
It is advisable not to have FemiLift whilst on your period as the blood may interfere with the laser treatment and make it less effective.
