In search of a female dryness cure

The vagina is an incredible organ that self-cleans and self-lubricates. Arousal spikes hormones for added lubrication and the vagina is able to maintain balanced moisture levels for comfort in and out of the bedroom. Or, at least, it’s supposed to. Vaginal dryness, also known as vaginal atrophy, can result in burning or itching sensations, post-coital bleeding, and pain or discomfort during sex. The umbrella term is quite broad, and it covers a wide range of symptoms with an even wider range in severity. Before we look for a female dryness cure let's understand what causes this issue.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_type="row" use_row_as_full_screen_section="no" type="full_width" angled_section="no" text_align="left" background_image_as_pattern="without_pattern" css_animation=""][vc_column][vc_column_text]FemiLift female dryness cure patient[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height="20px"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_type="row" use_row_as_full_screen_section="no" type="full_width" angled_section="no" text_align="left" background_image_as_pattern="without_pattern" css_animation=""][vc_column][vc_column_text]

When does vaginal dryness occur?

Short-term bouts of female dryness can occur and may be linked to anxiety, allergic reactions, dehydration, and even the use of cold or flu medication. However, the root cause of long-term vaginal atrophy is almost always caused by low estrogen levels. This can occur during:
  • Menopause
  • Pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding
  • Surgical menopause with the removal of the ovaries
  • Cancer treatments or taking anti-estrogen drugs
 

How does this happen?

The ovaries are the main producer of estrogen in the body, which keeps the lining of the vagina thick, elastic, and lubricated. With decreased estrogen, it becomes thinner, less elastic, and dry. In some cases, the lining may even change color due to dehydration. Some estrogen drops are initiated by medication, but female dryness is primarily experienced during natural hormonal shifts.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height="20px"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_type="row" use_row_as_full_screen_section="no" type="full_width" angled_section="no" text_align="left" background_image_as_pattern="without_pattern" css_animation=""][vc_column][vc_column_text]

What can you do about vaginal dryness?

A 2017 article in Climacteric found that an estimated 40% to 50% of all peri- menopausal and post-menopausal women experience vaginal dryness. However, only less than 4% of women explore treatment options. Lubricants and OTC moisturizers are a great first option to consider, but may not be enough. Although there is no magical female dryness cure, treatments can alleviate pain and discomfort. Women of all ages are encouraged to contact their OB/GYN for an exam and advising on treatment options. These options include the FemiLift Vaginal Laser Treatment by Alma Lasers. This treatment is minimally invasive and virtually painless and can significantly improve symptoms.

Vaginal dryness solutions interview with doctor

How to treat vaginal dryness?[Interview with Dr. Hollinger] 30 May

[vc_row row_type="row" use_row_as_full_screen_section="no" type="full_width" angled_section="no" text_align="left" background_image_as_pattern="without_pattern" css_animation=""][vc_column][vc_column_text]This article is based on an interview with Dr. Barbla Hollinger, Switzerland. The famous Gynecologist sat with us and talked about her experience with the FemiLift CO2 laser treatment and how it helped many of her patients who suffered vaginal dryness and other symptoms.

Q: Is the FemiLift a mature technology? Are women already being treated with it?

Yes, it is! earlier this year the treatment has reached an impressive milestone. Over 100,000 women were treated by it worldwide! This technology helps patients with a variety of problems, such as vaginal dryness, infections, urinary incontinence and bladder infections as well as vaginal laxity after childbirth. I hope more studies take a closer look at the positive impact of laser treatments. It would be a great leap forward in our field.

Q: Is FemiLift suitable for women of all ages, or is there a minimum/maximum age restriction?

Yes, it is suitable for women of all ages. I have treated about 35 women whose age ranged from 18 to 80. These women were cancer survivors, women suffering natural menopause issues and young women with recurring infections or seeking vaginal rejuvenation after giving birth. Young patients can bare higher energy levels during treatment than older patients. Therefore, it is important to be very careful and adjust the levels accordingly. In either case, the results are great! For example, an 80-year-old patient suffered from severe urinary incontinence and pain caused by vaginal dryness. I started out the first session with a low energy level. For the second treatment, I increased it up a bit. For the last session, I already used a high level of energy. This process ended with astonishing results and a very happy patient.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_type="row" use_row_as_full_screen_section="no" type="full_width" angled_section="no" text_align="left" background_image_as_pattern="without_pattern" css_animation=""][vc_column][vc_column_text] [caption id="attachment_18352" align="aligncenter" width="520"]Vaginal dryness expert Frau Dr. med. Barbla E. Hollinger[/caption] [/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height="20px"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_type="row" use_row_as_full_screen_section="no" type="full_width" angled_section="no" text_align="left" background_image_as_pattern="without_pattern" css_animation=""][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Q: How is FemiLift better than other solutions such as hormonal treatments or lubricant gels for vaginal dryness?

Hormone supplement therapy is as effective as laser treatment for vaginal dryness alone. However, keep in mind the hormonal treatment is only effective for as long as you take it. In order to reach substantial and long-lasting regeneration of the vaginal mucosa, the FemiLift laser or an equivalent treatment is inevitable. In Switzerland, hormonal treatment is covered by public health insurance whereas the FemiLift treatment has to be fully paid by the patient. But I know that in many countries this is changing and there are levels of insurance that cover it too. Nevertheless, subscribing hormones to patients with breast cancer or other hormone-related tumors is strictly forbidden! the risk is too high. They can either use a lubricant gel - which in my experience has hardly any effect at all - or undergo the FemiLift laser treatment. For them, FemiLift can really make a difference!

Q: How is the treatment conducted? How long before any results are achieved?

Normally we see major improvement after the second session. In order to obtain the best possible results, I advise my patients to book 3 sessions at 4-6 week intervals. The collagen in the vaginal tissue requires some time to completely regenerate. One should bear in mind, that we are treating live-tissue which fully recovers only after 3-6 months.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height="20px"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_type="row" use_row_as_full_screen_section="no" type="full_width" angled_section="no" text_align="left" background_image_as_pattern="without_pattern" css_animation=""][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Q: Is the treatment painful?

The treatment, in general, should not be painful. However, the patients will feel a tingling sensation. It also depends on the energy level applied. I start at a low level and increase the energy step-by-step, which causes only slight discomfort. Sometimes it is best to conduct 4 sessions with a low level of energy instead of 3.

Q: Are there any side effects patients should expect?

So far we haven't encountered any severe side effects. There are very rare exceptions to that. In one case a patient reported that for 24 hours after the treatment she had little pinkish colored vaginal discharge. I also had one patient who felt slight irritation in her bladder. Therefore, I always recommend postponing sexual intercourse 24 hours after the treatment.

Q: How many treatments are needed? How long does each treatment take?

3-4 sessions are usually enough. In some cases, I recommend 4 sessions, especially to patients with a high degree of tightness. That's because I have to start with a low energy level. Each session takes about 15 to 30 minutes.

Q: Who administers the treatment?

A doctor or a certified family nurse can perform this treatment. That refers to Switzerland. When it comes to different locations I know regulations differ.

Q: You've mentioned cancer survivors. Can FemiLift relieve cancer therapy side effects?

A common side effect of cancer therapy is vaginal dryness, mostly right after chemotherapy or due to a surgically-induced menopause. This happens because the vaginal tissue loses its moisture and flexibility. Vaginal dryness provokes an uneasy feeling when you sit, walk or even while keeping still.  It also may cause pain during sexual intercourse. FemiLift improves these symptoms significantly. More importantly, the results of the FemiLift treatment are long-term. The earlier the treatment process begins, the better the results are – you can even use it alongside cancer therapy to gain the best possible results. That is of course if the patient is ready for it. Let me give you an example. I recently treated a 65 years old patient who had breast cancer many years ago. Since her recovery, she has suffered severe vaginal tightness. The standard instruments used at gynecological check-ups caused her extreme pain. At her first FemiLift treatment I could only use the slim FemiLift probe. It is Only 18 mm in diameter. At the fourth treatment, I could treat her with the standard 28 mm probe and the pain was gone. From now on gynecological check-ups as well as sexual intercourse are no longer painful to her.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height="20px"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_type="row" use_row_as_full_screen_section="no" type="full_width" angled_section="no" text_align="left" background_image_as_pattern="without_pattern" css_animation=""][vc_column][vc_column_text]FemiLift for vaginal dryness[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height="20px"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_type="row" use_row_as_full_screen_section="no" type="full_width" angled_section="no" text_align="left" background_image_as_pattern="without_pattern" css_animation=""][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Q: Is FemiLift only effective for women who fully recovered from cancer?

Not at all. It is effective regardless of which stage you choose to have it. You can commence treatment alongside cancer therapy. However, for many women who undergo cancer therapy, this is not the top priority. Therefore, I only recommend FemiLift during cancer treatment if the patient reports vaginal dryness or pain. Otherwise, I’d recommend waiting until the cancer treatment has been completed. The ultimate solution for dryness is the FemiLift laser treatment.

Q: Is there any research supporting the claim FemiLift helps cancer survivors?

There are a couple of excellent studies published. Unfortunately, it’s still a relatively understudied topic. Pagano et.al. “Evaluation of the CO2 Laser Therapy on Vulvar-Vaginal Atrophy (VVA) in Oncological Patients: Preliminary Results”,  is a study I consider to be one of the most thorough studies on this topic to date. Also, there was one conducted by Paolo Scollo, director of Gynecology at the Cannizzaro Hospital of Catania. This study was published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology. Women who participated in this study reported a satisfaction rate of 80%, which is very high.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_type="row" use_row_as_full_screen_section="no" type="full_width" angled_section="no" text_align="left" background_image_as_pattern="without_pattern" css_animation=""][vc_column][vc_column_text]Dr. Barbla Hollinger is a Swiss Gynaecologist and owns a practice in Oberwil, BL.

A brave new postmenopause world 25 Mar

[vc_row row_type="row" use_row_as_full_screen_section="no" type="full_width" angled_section="no" text_align="left" background_image_as_pattern="without_pattern" css_animation=""][vc_column][vc_column_text]

What is postmenopause?

We have discussed menopause extensively in previous posts. What happens afterward? Menopause is the time frame that marks the termination of a woman's menstrual cycles. It is a normal part of aging and marks the end of a woman's reproductive years. For most women menopause usually happens between the ages of 40 and 50 years and can last about 5 years. Normally,  women are deemed to have reached menopause when monthly periods have stopped for around 12 consecutive months. However,  women who had their ovaries surgically removed experience "sudden menopause" no matter how old they are. Postmenopause is essentially the rest of a woman's life after menopause has completed and can last over 30 years.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_type="row" use_row_as_full_screen_section="no" type="full_width" angled_section="no" text_align="left" background_image_as_pattern="without_pattern" css_animation=""][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Some astonishing menopause-related stats

  • The average age of menopause is 51 years, however, the age can range from 40 to 58 years.
  • The average life expectancy (in the US) is 84 years and rising. Combine this with the previous stat and you can conclude that many women will spend 50% of their life as post-menopausal.
  • By 2025 the number of post-menopausal women worldwide is projected to be 1.1 Billion!
  • Studies show that nearly 60% of women suffer from more than one symptom of menopause. Nearly 25% of these women claim that it affects their lives in a way they must seek medical assistance e.g therapy or medication.
[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

What actually changes during menopause?

Essentially, during menopause, the ovaries no longer produce high levels of female hormones- estrogen and progesterone (they also produce testosterone). These hormones enable control of the menstruation cycle. Estrogen also affects how the female body uses calcium and maintains cholesterol levels in the blood. Menopause can be typically divided into 3 periods: Perimenopause or "menopause transition"- a gradual normal process which usually starts in women's early 40's but might start earlier. It can last as long as 8-10 years leading up to menopause. In its last stages, the drop in estrogen accelerates. Many women might experience menopause symptoms yet still have menstrual cycles and can become pregnant. Menopause. Menopause is the point when women no longer have their menstrual periods. The ovaries have completely stopped releasing eggs and no longer produce most of their estrogen. Menopause is officially diagnosed when a woman hasn't had a period for 12 consecutive months. Postmenopause. The years after menopause. As written earlier in this post, many women now spend most of their lives post-menopausal.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_type="row" use_row_as_full_screen_section="no" type="full_width" angled_section="no" text_align="left" background_image_as_pattern="without_pattern" css_animation=""][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Common postmenopause symptoms

The list of menopause common symptoms is very long, therefore, many women share different experiences about that period. Many have hot flashes, Insomnia, emotional instability, worsening of premenstrual syndrome while others suffer other types of discomfort. In most cases, these symptoms ease gradually once postmenopause begins. Truth is, many women have reported that once they became postmenopausal, they felt newly energized and experienced an improved overall feeling of well-being. On the other hand, there are women who experience a few lingering symptoms that may last for as long as 10 years after menopause. Here is a list of the most common postmenopause symptoms: Vaginal dryness or itching - due to the decreased production of estrogen, women's vaginal walls become thinner and even atrophy. This causes dryness which leads to constant itching, soreness, and pain during sexual intercourse. Vaginal discharge - this can often be a sign of vaginal atrophy much like the dryness and itching mentioned above. In some cases, it might be tinted with blood which is not necessarily a problem but if it becomes stronger and more frequent medical advice should be sought. Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) - studies suggest that nearly 40% of postmenopause women suffer from mild to severe urinary incontinence. This loss of bladder control during physical activities such as laughing, sneezing, coughing or exercising. The Weakening of the muscles that control the bladder is related to the low levels of estrogen. This symptom which causes distress to many women can be improved to a degree with Kegel (pelvic floor) exercise and even more some with energy based vaginal treatments as the FemiLift. Weight gain - a common phenomenon for women at this stage is an inexplicable weight gain of about 5-10 kgs. Insomnia - Some women find it very hard to sleep regularly during first years of postmenopause.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

What about sexual life?

Whether it's due to the symptoms listed above, or just prejudice established earlier in life, some women believe they should give up on sex when they reach menopause. Loss of sex during menopause or later is not a predicament, as many women are finding out today. Moreover, remaining sexually active when older holds many health benefits, especially for women. Here are a few: Improves blood flow and reduces stress Strengthens the immune system Promotes better sleep Supports bladder control By addressing the aforementioned troublesome symptoms and restoring your the self-confidence you are taking a huge step towards an extreme improvement to your well-being.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_type="row" use_row_as_full_screen_section="no" type="full_width" angled_section="no" text_align="left" background_image_as_pattern="without_pattern" css_animation=""][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Treating postmenopause symptoms

[caption id="attachment_18247" align="alignright" width="400"]Postmenopause couple Many women choose to improve their well-being[/caption] Women who choose to improve their well-being by addressing these symptoms directly can usually choose between 4 approaches. Each of these approaches can help with several but probably not all symptoms together. Therefore women should consider combining and trying out at least Two of these according to their needs. Lifestyle change— This one can be tricky. On paper, its the most obvious and safest approach but it is not always so easy to implement. It includes exercising regularly, engaging in stress-reducing activities, and keeping a well-balanced postmenopause friendly diet. Alternative medicine— There is a wide range of treatments of course. These include hormone regulating natural herbs, massage, aromatherapy, and biofeedback.  Medication— In the past, especially in the USA there were many women who chose hormone replacement therapy (HRT). However, researchers have suggested the introduction of synthetic hormones increases the risk for life-threatening conditions dramatically. These conditions include heart disease, breast and ovarian cancer, blood clots and more. None-invasive surgical laser treatment such as the FemiLift— These are targeted specifically for issues such as vaginal dryness, urinary incontinence, and vaginal laxity. By addressing and treating these issues many women find they can rediscover and rejuvenate their sexual life, confidence, and femininity.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_type="row" use_row_as_full_screen_section="no" type="full_width" angled_section="no" text_align="left" background_image_as_pattern="without_pattern" css_animation=""][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Where to get help?

You should always start off by meeting with a doctor, preferably a Gynecologist but a family doctor or GP can also help. We have a list of providers you can check out here.

Breast Cancer survivors FemiLift campaign

FemiLift helps rediscovering your body and sexuality after cancer 02 Nov

Cancer- this illness has touched almost everyone's lives- Who of us hasn't had a relative dealing with it?

October was the Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We have decided to shed some light on the issues women deal with after they have recovered. While there have been substantial advancements in medicine and technology there are still many troubling side effects that follow most of the conventional treatments, especially for women. Just when these brave women think the battle is over, they are proven wrong when they face the "collateral damage" and it's devastating effect on their emotional and sexual well-being.

The Symptoms

Chemo and radiotherapy, and also hormonal therapies, may cause skin rashes, vaginal dryness and other side effects that may undermine cancer survivors' sexual life. In essence, some of these women, those who are well below the expected age, experience premature menopause. However, solutions do exist, starting from a correct choice of detergents and underwear to a laser that stimulates collagen production. Not only the skin, but even genital organs and consequently one's sexuality may be subject to the side effects of Oncological therapies on patients' bodies. Disturbances such as vaginal atrophy, incontinence, difficulty or impossibility in having sexual intercourse are frequent consequences of female tumor treatment with hormone therapy, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy. Yet, this is not a “toll” that needs to be paid without even trying to put up a fight. This topic was discussed during the 6th edition of the Scientific Board “The Rediscovered Body”, composed by dermatologists who have been working for several years on the damages caused by Oncological therapies.

The role of the dermatologist

When dealing with sexual disturbances the first physician that comes to mind is the gynecologist. However, when these disturbances are the consequence of a tumor and its relative therapies, women need to take a wider perspective, given that oftentimes they do not have the courage of talking about these problems with an oncologist. According to the Italian Association of Medical Oncology, only 10% of the patients speak to their doctor about this. “As dermatologists, we're often called upon for specific problems: atrophy, the appearance of symptoms such as itching, stenosis, ease of inflammation, difficult recovery following local infections (candidiasis, trichomonas, herpes)” – says Maria Concetta Pucci Romano, specialist in dermatology and president of the Board The Rediscovered Body. “Furthermore, this area can also be the site of dermatological illnesses: psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, atrophic lichen sclerosis.”

Effects of aromatase inhibitors

In a very high percentage of cases, women with cancer and subject to chemotherapy during their fertile age suffer early menopause. Not only that: “In case of hormone-dependent breast cancer, in addition to traditional chemo and radiotherapy, a therapy with drugs called aromatase inhibitors is prescribed in order to increase the survival rate and prevent the risk of metastasis. These drugs destroy all deposits and production of estrogens, eliminating their presence” – explains Pucci Romano. “This therapeutic ‘umbrella’ undoubtedly saves lives and needs to be administered over the years, but for women aromatase inhibitors are an insidious and wicked enemy: androgenetic alopecia, dry skin, body hair growth and genital mucosal disruption are some of the most frequent side effects, and even arthralgia, ease of losing weight, mood disorders. And this occurs in situations where the patient is very far from old age” continues the specialist.

What types of disturbances do these cancer survivors suffer from?

According to the data provided by the Italian Association of Medical Oncology, 70% of women with breast cancer suffer from vaginal atrophy when subject to hormonal therapies used to fight the illness. This problem affects all of the patients operated for ovarian cancer due to the removal of the organ. Even chemotherapy and radiotherapy can determine these kinds of problem. “Chemotherapy” – explains Gabriella Fabbrocini, associate professor of dermatology and venereology at the University of Naples Federico II and head of the outpatient clinic ‘The Rediscovered Body’- “stimulates xerosis, which means dry and arid skin, and this occurs both at the level of the skin and genital mucus. In women in menopause operated for breast tumor, whose hormone level is altered, this symptom becomes much more evident with vulvodynia and limitation of their sexual life. In men, and also in women, there may be fungal or bacterial fractions” concludes Fabbrocini. Skin rashes, in the same way as it occurs on the face and body, may also appear in genital areas. “In the case of Egfr inhibitors” – explains Fabbrocini – “the rash can be localized, even if occasionally, at the genital level and in the hairy zones of this area. The most annoying symptom is itching accompanied by the fear of showing intimate areas which are not intact to the partner, which may invalidate a person's sexual life.”

The suggested solution - collagen stimulation by CO2 laser treatment

Until now, the only therapies available were hormonal treatments. These cannot be used on women diagnosed with tumor given the high risk of relapse of the illness. Other solutions are lubricant gels, which are only effective in the short term. However, today new instruments are available such as a laser capable of effectively treating vaginal atrophy, the condition which occurs in more than 50% of the women suffering from menopause and, most of all, in Oncological patients. Lasers are considered very effective because they directly stimulate the production of collagen, which during menopause hardens and loses thickness.

How does collagen growth help?

“The collagen regains the capacity of producing mucus and the vagina returns to its original elasticity and lubrication as before menopause,” explains Paolo Scollo, director of gynecology at the Cannizzaro Hospital of Catania. A particular instrument, a CO2 laser such as the FemiLift, is also suitable for Oncological patients because it has a smaller probe than the one used for transvaginal ultrasound scans. Three sessions are needed, once every month, lasting about 10 minutes each. “The new application field of these tools” – continues Scollo – “is indeed with these patients, oftentimes young and suffering from menopause induced by surgical intervention, chemotherapy, hormonal therapy or radiotherapy.”

The clinical study

A pilot study was carried out at the Cannizzaro Hospital of Catania on 35 oncological patients to evaluate the production of collagen after laser treatment: "The study, published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, has demonstrated that thanks to laser treatment, collagen thickness tripled. In addition, we conducted a survey of patients after 6 months and a year and a half in order to assess their degree of satisfaction. The satisfaction score reported was 80% and it was also confirmed by the results of the biopsies carried out,” continues Scollo. This study was the starting point of the national campaign ‘Femilift for the quality of life of oncological patients’ presented this past March at the Ministry of Health. Another application field of this laser is in vulvar dystrophy, in particular with old and oncological patients: “It is a condition which causes burning sensations, itching, insensitive skin and the laser works very well in this case,” states Scollo. Another international study on the effectiveness of laser in this field is currently undergoing and being led by the Cannizzaro Hospital of Catania. The departments of gynecology of the Tel Aviv and Buenos Aires hospitals also participate in this research.”

Other important tips for cancer survivors to consider

The right detergents

However, what can be done during everyday life in order to alleviate these disturbances? “Cleaning the area with delicate soaps free of parabens, silicones and useless disinfectants which may further alter the local balance,” suggests Pucci Romano. “Cleansing oils, moisturizing, with fatty components of vegetable origins are good (jojoba, karite, pumpkin, olive oil) and also the ones derived from chemical syntheses as long as they are green (glycerin, cholesterol, glucose, rhamnose, lactic acid), which leave a soft and moisturized mucous.”

What to avoid

Lubricant gels that need to be applied internally have led to the growth of a market full of products that promise hydration, lubrication, eased sexual intercourse. However, do they really work? “The majority of them are a triumph of bad chemistry (Vaseline, Paraffin, PEG and many other components),” warns Pucci Romano, who also adds, “As president of Skineco, a scientific association which promotes the eco-dermo-compatibility of the products that come into contact with the skin and mucous, I cannot abstain from advising against the use of these products. Their active ingredients are much praised (hyaluronic acid, vegetable oils, aloe, etc.) and they are certainly valid and reliable, but the vehicles which transport them to their final site of destination (vulva and vagina) are almost always of the worst quality.”

Underwear

Even choosing correct and dermo-compatible underwear is important for cancer survivors. “As Skineco,” tells Pucci Romano, “we have carried out a study on cotton. The results are disconcerting: the presence of contaminating substances used for several purposes, from spinning to coloring, was really high. And we did not test samples coming from market stalls or Chinese productions but famous brands”. A report was particularly frightening. The presence of optical bleachers (such as formaldehyde, perchlorates, peroxides) used to whiten cotton was reported as active in the fabric after well over 10 washing cycles. Skineco experts have also analyzed underwear recommended for gynecological problems, whose fabric is weaved with silver fibers (praised as “anti-inflammatory”). In the tests carried out, these have demonstrated an extremely high level of cytotoxicity, i.e. cellular death.

Laundry detergents

Finally, care must be reserved for laundry detergents used to wash underwear. In particular, softeners which are based on quaternary ammonium salts, and are difficult to rinse. These toxic salts remain trapped in the fabric for a long time. “That ‘soft and fragrant’ feeling that is so seducing comes back as mucous secretions which are somehow reactivated. This is not healthy for the physiological balance of cancer survivors. Ut also affects the microbiota of the genital mucous,” concludes Pucci Romano.

Woman reading about SUI
Sep 13 2017

Misbehaving bladder? Help is here. 13 Sep

You know the feeling.

A good old sneeze is making its way up. You are just trying to fight it as best as you possibly can because you know – when you sneeze, you pee. It's annoying, embarrassing and messy, to say the least! Laughing is no longer a laughing matter either…. What used to be a funny moment is not so fun anymore. You might be surprised, but you are definitely not alone. Truth is many women suffer from SUI (stress urinary incontinence).

A common problem.

Millions of women around the world suffer from this. Simple everyday actions such as sneezing, coughing, laughing or even just bending over often lead to unwanted urinary leakage. For some ladies daily bladder control problems are so severe they have to run to the bathroom often regardless of what they were doing. This problem is known as Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI). SUI is an extremely common issue that can lead to frustration, embarrassment and an overall decrease in quality of life. After all, nobody wants to feel self-conscious about their bladder all the time, or have to run to the bathroom so often. Why can't I control my body anymore? SUI is essentially the weakening of muscles and tissues that support the bladder and regulate urinary release. This weakening makes it harder to control regulation of urine, involuntary and unwanted leakage is experienced. [caption id="attachment_17666" align="alignright" width="300"]Urinary leakage issues This awkward posture is defiantly not a solution to SUI[/caption] As mentioned earlier, the triggers can be anything from sneezing to coughing, lifting something heavy and even having sex. There are various reasons that lead to SUI, including age, hormonal changes, childbirth and increased body weight, to name a few. Sometimes it is a combination of several of these – or for no apparent reason whatsoever. The fact is this – SUI is very common, and thankfully – very treatable. It's just a matter of getting over the embarrassment and getting on with a solution.    

Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) is real and can be very annoying.

Now, there's a solution that really works.

Modern day science makes SUI easily treatable. Energy-based technology has made huge progress in recent years. We have seen so much innovation in safe, non-surgical lifting processes for the face and body that resulted in an abundance of options for women (and men) who want to improve their physical and mental being safely and effectively. In recent years, cutting-edge technologies used for the face and body, are being directed towards the improvement of vaginal and urinary functioning. That includes dealing with the issue of SUI. The same principles that have been working successfully for years are now available for women who want to feel better and lead a more fulfilling feminine life. Controlling your urinary release is indeed one of the most significant issues that affect how well you live. Hence, regaining that control is essential. [blog_optin title=" have any questions? Contact us for help."][contact-form-7 id="16705" title="blog optin"][/blog_optin]

This solution can fix your SUI issues (and other issues, too!)

How does it work? Same as with any tightening or rejuvenation process works on your face, or any other part of your body, so can your vagina be tightened or, essentially, "lifted". Consequently, this technique reinforces the weakened muscles and tissues that lead to leakage. Afterwards, you can easily control your urine release and no longer experience loss of bladder control. A very successful solution called FemiLift utilizes highly advanced CO2 laser technology to treat a wide range of feminine issues. These issues include SUI, vaginal laxity and post-menopause indications such as dry vaginal lining and thinning. Moreover, it helps to clear up recurring infections or irritation.

Painless and comfy.

[caption id="attachment_17670" align="alignright" width="400"]SUI treatment clinic You don't need to go to the hospital to treat SUI[/caption] Most noteworthy- regardless of your age or issue, this treatment is completely safe and virtually painless. Hence, you can leisurely have it done in a comfortable outpatient environment. You don't need to take any time off and you'll be surprised to learn how quickly the results are experienced! Would you have to consult your gynecologist first? Of course, but remember – every woman who feels like something is not quite right can be helped. Isn't it a shame not to?    

So what can you do now?

First of all, you should stop worrying – You are not alone and what you are experiencing is completely normal and common – and most importantly – treatable! Next, you should contact your healthcare provider (GP or gynecologist) to share your concerns and symptoms and discuss proper treatment. Last but not least, you should find more online resources to educate yourself about the latest solution available and make sure that it is right for you.

The questions you were too embarrassed to ask..answered! 25 Jun

FemiLift Patient Interview

Deborah Cruz, the TruthfulMommy blogger has found answers to the questions about the FemiLift treatment you were too embarrassed to ask.

FemiLift procedure – I had a million, some very personal questions. I wanted to speak with someone who actually experienced the procedure, and Jackie Jorge was a great sport and answered every single one of them. On a scale of One to Ten, how painful was it?  I would say it was a Two if Ten is the worst pain ever. (Wow! Less painful than I expected.) How invasive did it feel? I hated the early pregnancy ultrasound wands so how does it compare to that? It’s way smaller than the ultrasound pregnancy wand, but there is definitely something going “in” you, so you can feel it. I think a pap is more invasive (and painful) than FemiLift treatment. (Good to know because my paps are pretty painful) How many treatments did you need? Doctor recommended 3 FemiLift treatments. What was your personal recovery time? There is no recovery time. I was able to go about my day just as usual. The nurse said I shouldn’t have intercourse on the night of the treatment. (Definitely shorter than I expected.)

Can you tell a difference? How? Is it visible or strictly internal and a change in sensation?

Yes! I can absolutely feel the difference. I had two major issues that I was trying to address. The first was stress urinary incontinence and the other was dryness during intercourse. By the 3rd week of the first treatment, I noticed I wasn’t peeing when I laughed or sneezed. By the second treatment, I had actually caught a cold and it was the first time I didn’t need a mini pad during my cold! Another great difference is when I take my daughters to the bathroom. I used to have to use the toilet first or I would pee myself! Now, I’m able to let them go first! As far as intercourse… after the first FemiLift treatment, I noticed right away that I was able to “last longer” and I didn’t need to stop my husband to get the lube out! What does your husband say? Has he noticed a difference? I actually wasn’t expecting this… but he said last week that he thinks I’m tighter. He never complained before, but it was nice to know that he is enjoying the benefits too. Has it improved your sex life? How? OMG… 100% yes!!! After the second treatment, sex feels incredible!! It is a gift to be able to really enjoy and want sex at 40 (Something)… You have no inhibitions so you’re able to reach climaxes that you never knew existed (and in record time). Has it made you more confident in bed? Yes. See above statement ? I’ve never really had confidence issues in bed, but I can say that after FemiLift, I am so much more excited to have sex! Has it made it easier to achieve orgasm through penetration? Yes. I am like totally blown away how much more sensation I have. It’s like FemiLift treatment has re-awakened my vagina. It’s pretty amazing!

Would you recommend it to your friends? Sisters?

YES. I DO RECOMMEND FEMILIFT EVERYTIME IT’S BROUGHT UP IN CONVERSATION! I’M ACTUALLY NOT SURPRISED THAT IT COMES UP AS OFTEN AS IT DOES… MORE OFTEN THAN NOT, I’M NOT THE ONLY ONE WITH THE SAME ISSUES. I HAVE FOUND THAT WOMEN ARE LOOKING FOR RE-ASSURANCE THAT WHAT THEY’RE DEALING WITH IS “NORMAL”… I WOULD SAY TO ANY WOMAN WHO COMPLAINS OF DRYNESS/PAIN DURING SEX, STRESS INCONTINENCE OR THE CONSTANT URGE TO PEE… THAT YOU CAN FIX YOUR LEAKS AND URGES TO PEE AND THAT SEX CAN BE AMAZING AGAIN! MY FRIENDS AND SISTERS HAVE BEEN FOLLOWING MY PROGRESS AND I HAVE GIVEN MY DOCTOR’S NUMBER A FEW TIMES! :))

5 REASONS WHY WOMEN NEED FEMILIFT 04 Jun

Divinelifestyle.com blog review of FemiLift

Stacie Haight Connerty is a blogger from Atlanta, GA that specializes in social media, tech and foodie lifestyle. She has tried out the FemiLift procedure at Dr. Myla Bennett's clinic and would love to share her experience with other women.

Did you know that One of out of Three women over the age of 45 will have a feminine health concern within their lifetime?

I have to admit when I first heard of FemiLift and indeed all laser vaginal treatments, the first thing I said to myself is, “Not me. I don't need that.” Isn't that the normal reaction? Why would I need something like this? Well, I should have read a lot more because if I had, I would have had this procedure done years ago. Seriously.

FemiLift for Urinary Incontinence, Postmenopausal & Other Vaginal Symptoms

Dr. Joke Haartsen of the Netherlands shares her experience treating women with FemiLift.

"I meet many women who experience stress Incontinence"

What is Urinary Incontinence?

"Urinary Incontinence means you leak urine under exertion. It happens when the body experiences pressure such as laughing, sneezing, coughing, or sports. It is the single most common form of undesired urine loss and can happen at any age. It’s not uncommon for young women, especially young mothers." Study Case I "Today Ms. X came for a check-up. She first came to see me for her Urinary Incontinence while running. She’s 40 years old, has 3 children, and is very athletic. She hated that running had become virtually impossible – physiotherapy did not do the trick for her. She was less than excited about surgical options. After 3 treatments with the FemiLift (a vaginal fractional CO2 laser), one every 4 weeks, she is completely symptom-free. She had outpatient treatments, who took only minutes and were completely pain-free. After her treatments, she could immediately continue with her day as normal. Not only is she able to run without urinating again, she even told me that she can trampoline with a full bladder again!" The Major Advantage "It’s non-surgical. There is no downtime, I only advise my patients to abstain from sex for 3 days. The treatment itself is relatively painless. Improving the quality of de collagen of the vagina, and through that, the firmness of the vagina leads to a restoration of continence in 85-90% of treated women."

The Ideal Solution to Postmenopausal Vaginal Symptoms

"I meet outpatients with postmenopausal vaginal symptoms every day at work"

Why Does It Happen?

Because the estrogen production stops after the menopause, the vagina gets drier, more prone to infections, and less elastic. These changes can cause discomfort, blood loss, and pain during sex. In the past, only estrogen treatment could provide help in these cases. Nowadays, vaginal laser treatments provide the ideal solution

Study Case II  "Ms. Y came to see me at the clinic because she suffered from vaginal dryness to the point where sex became virtually impossible. Lube did not help. She had been using Estriol vaginal crème for a while, and although it had an adequate effect she had to stop using it because it caused painful swelling in her breasts. As a result, the dryness then went stayed. Not only did she suffer from it a lot, it also affected her relationship. After 3 treatments only with the FemiLift, she was completely free from these symptoms; her lubrication was completely restored. She was able to have sex without pain again. After 3-4 outpatient treatments, 1 every 4 weeks, 90-95% of all women are liberated from their vaginal symptoms. There’s no need for anesthesia, as the treatment is virtually painless." The Major Advantage "The women I’ve treated with the FemiLift are now completely symptom-free and weren't required to start over with the hormone treatments they used before. There are no complications. Because the treatment does not stop the aging process, repeat visits are necessary once every 1 or 2 years. However, because of the simplicity of the treatment, this is no cause for concern for most women." [blog_optin title=" Any of this sound familiar?

Women smiling FemiLift

It’s time to have that conversation, ladies. 14 Feb

Here's some good news for women of all ages.

Even as mature, knowledgeable women, we still feel a bit awkward sharing information about our private parts. After all, they are, well, private.

 

Isn't it a shame that we often compromise our pleasure, or our comfort, because we're embarrassed? Or don't know who to ask? Or not even sure we even have a problem? For many women, just like yourself, part of the problem is acknowledging that something is bothering you. You may feel like something is not right, or that it used to be better or different, but many times we as women just sort of accept it. We are so used to  just getting on with our lives, or getting used to changes in our body, that we don't stop and ask - "is this ok? can anything be done about it?" Well, ladies- here is the good news: YES! There is plenty to be done! So, let's start by getting into some detail, shall we?

 

Let's start with some facts...

First of all, a bit of scientific info (not too scientific, don't worry). As we age, our bodies change, inside and out. That includes our female anatomy, and yes – our vaginas, too. Natural hormonal changes that come with age, along with changes in our anatomical structure due to childbirth, menopause or surgery, can lead to loss in vaginal laxity (that means your vagina wall is stretched out) or stress urinary incontinence (which is why you may find yourself running to the ladies room so often). Another uncomfortable result may be a loss of sensation and decrease in sexual pleasure. Well. Nobody deserves that. Especially when there's something that can be done about it. Times are changing and as technology moves forward at a fast pace, so do the options you have to take care of these issues – easily, and most importantly – safely.

Here's some good news for your vagina.

[caption id="attachment_16798" align="alignright" width="510"]FemiLift - vaginal Rejuvenation Deep thermal effect for vaginal tissue rejuvenation[/caption] Energy-based technology has made huge progress in recent years. We have seen so much progress in anti-aging and safe, non-surgical lifting processes for the face and body, that it seems like there is an abundance of options for women (and men) who want to maintain their youthful looks over time. Everything and anything from laser treatments to radio frequency techniques seems to be having a huge impact on body contouring, face lifting, anti-aging, wrinkle reduction, pigmentation, hair removal and even tattoo removal. So, what about our vaginas? Well, the truth is that in recent years, cutting-edge technologies used for the face and body, are now being directed towards the improvement of vaginal functioning and appearance. The same principles that have been working successfully for years are now available for women who want to feel better and lead a more fulfilling feminine life. One solution for numerous issues. Just like any tightening or rejuvenation process works on your face, or any other part of your body, so can your vagina be tightened or, essentially, "lifted". Using highly advanced CO2 laser technology, a very successful minimally invasive solution called FemiLift is being used to treat a wide range of feminine issues, including SUI (stress urinary incontinence), vaginal tightening, post-menopause indications such as dry vaginal lining and thinning, as well as clearing up recurring infections or irritation. Regardless of your age or issue, this treatment is completely safe and virtually painless and can be done in a comfortable out-patient environment. There is no need to take any time off and results are really quick. Of course, you would have to consult your gynecologist but basically, every woman who feels like something is not quite right can be helped. Isn't it a shame not to? [blog_optin title=" Any of this sound familiar? Contact us if you want to hear more."][contact-form-7 id="16705" title="blog optin"][/blog_optin]

So, here are a few tips:

  • First of all, don't be shy. There's really nothing to be embarrassed about. These issues are so common, they really should be part of any conversation (ok, maybe not every conversation – but you get the idea.)
 
  • Get in touch with your body. Ask yourself some basic questions such as: "Does this feel right?", "Am I running to the restroom more often than I think I should be?", "Does my vagina feel dry or irritated?, "Am I enjoying sex as much as I used to?", "Does something feel different?". You have to start the conversation with yourself first if you want to get answers and solutions for your body.
 
  • Ask your doctor. Any good gynecologist or even your GP should know about this and will be able to help you find the best solution for your needs. If you want to get more information on your own, check out femilift-dev.ussl.info. This website will provide all the answers to your questions, and also has a contact page so you can feel free to contact them if you need more assistance. It also refers you to a doctor in your area, if you want to contact a professional in person.
 
  • Don't wait. As with anything else in life, putting it off doesn't make it go away. It usually just makes it worse. The sooner you decide to take care of your issue – as minor or major as it seems – the quicker you will be able to benefit from a better, more satisfying and enjoyable feminine life. You deserve it.

50% of all women experience vaginal issues after menopause. 17 Jan

Post Menopause women

FemiLift: The ideal solution for post-menopause vaginal issues

Menopause is not an easy experience. It changes the body in several ways, and many women suffer from vaginal problems during and after this natural phase. FemiLift by Alma Lasers (a fractional CO2 laser) has proven to be a safe, efficient solution for these problems. Postmenopausal hormonal changes cause differences in the mucous membranes and connective tissue surrounding the vagina. As a result, almost 50% of all women experience vaginal dryness, pain during sex, and Urinary Incontinence after menopause. FemiLift stimulates the mucous membranes of the vagina which fortifies it, improves blood circulation, and rejuvenates the lining of the vagina. The elasticity of the vagina is regained, and lubrication eases – which improves sexual arousal. Additionally, fortifying the vaginal wall also reduces Urinary Incontinence. The treatment is suitable for all postmenopausal women who experience vaginal symptoms and pain during sex. It also an essential solution for women who have survived breast cancer and can not be treated by hormone supplements. It is outpatient and virtually painless. There is no downtime – after the treatment, you can continue as normal. We would, however, recommend avoiding sex for up till 3 days afterward. After only 3 treatments 85-90% of all women are completely symptom-free – there are no complications. Because the treatment does not stop the aging process, repeat visits are necessary once every 1 or 2 years.  

FemiLift is a revolutionary risk-free treatment that restores control of your bladder.

  Dr Joke Gynocologist Joke Haartsen MD, "I am a Gynecologist with over 20 years of experience. My areas of interest are Urogynecology, vulvar pathology, and Cosmetic Gynecology.

After birth ? Everything in your life has changed and so is your body 01 Dec

Dr. Alexandros Bader – Talks About Post Delivery.

Now that the pregnancy is (finally) over, you've been rewarded with a living, breathing wonder - and a new title: Mom. Like just about everything else in your life, your body faces significant changes in the weeks and months following your baby's birth. In this postpartum period, which begins immediately after delivery, your body will heal from childbirth, rebuild its strength and begin to regain its pre-pregnancy shape. The more you know about what to expect, the better prepared you'll be to cope with the physical and emotional changes that come post-pregnancy. Women may experience a wide range of postpartum problems, some more serious than others and each with its own symptoms. Some of the more common problems include:
    • Postpartum infections, (including uterine, bladder, or kidney infections)
    • Excessive bleeding after delivery
  • Pain in the perineal area (between the vagina and the rectum)
  • Vaginal discharge
[blog_optin title="find out more about femilift"][contact-form-7 id="16705" title="blog optin"][/blog_optin] Luckily, there’s a solution – and it’s called FemiLift. FemiLift is a non-surgical, quick, pain-free and safe solution this simple, pain-free procedure can make a huge difference in women lives. These issues are much more common than you would ever imagine – and now they’re really easy to solve. We think it’s time to get the conversation going – and do something about it.

We asked Dr. Alxandros Bader, from his experience on post-delivery –

Dr. Bader who specializes in aesthetic and cosmetic vaginal surgery and urogynecology has performed over 1,500 operations worldwide and has operated on patients from more than 45 different countries. What are the main complications after delivery? What are their main complaints? The main complications are the relaxation of local muscles and multi wounds of the introitus and entire vaginal canal. The main complaints are feeling of loose muscles and lack of control on them. Symptoms, in this case, are lack of urine control with leakage every time the patients are pressing on the lower abdominal walls (gym, cough, sneeze, sexual intercourse). Also, the laxity of the tissues at same area will alert these patients with lack of sexual satisfaction and alteration of sexual life quality. What are the age groups SUI and Laxity are most common at? Is there any difference between the age groups? Usually, the age group here is young women in their reproductive age. So we can talk in between 30 and 45. Of course, the older is the woman it gets worse because of tissue elasticity which is definitely getting affected by age and the number of deliveries. Statistics in the USA shows that 28,000,000 women suffering from UI and among them, 15,000,000 are suffering from SUI only!!  Meaning more than 50% of urine Incontinence patients suffer from stress type of Incontinence which is mainly related to post-delivery anatomical defects. Are the complications show up after first pregnancy? Second? When should the woman seek for treatment? It could happen after any pregnancy. This depends on the nature of the pregnancy and the delivery itself. Has the woman had a difficult delivery, if vacuum or forceps have been used, how big is the neonatal and of course how experience is the obstetrician. Bear in mind that in some countries normal deliveries are in the duty of midwife and not even a doctor. In this case, complications might be even greater.

How long after the delivery will you recommend undergoing the treatment?(/h4>

My recommendations are 3 to 4 months. Usually, I include this during the routine check-up 3 months after the delivery. Can breastfeeding Interrupt with the treatment? Not at all. This is one of the laser advantages. We can use it without interfering the synergy between a mother and her baby. A laser is safe in this case. What is the success rate of FemiLift treatments? The success rate is extremely high. About 83% of SUI and Vaginal laxity issue treatments are considered as the success. We have a high prevention percentage of the same symptoms. From my statistics’ we are talking about 87% of success!!! Do you see growth in women seeking a treatment after delivery? Definitely yes. Patients are constantly asking about the procedure. I can say that after 5 years of experience in this field, every 2nd woman is asking to be informed about it and every 3rd woman is asking to undergo the treatment!! This is massive if you add the numbers.

This Jilted Bride Rejuvenated Her Life And My Vagina 22 Nov

Sandra Lamorgese, Ph.D., author and podcast host visits Nicole Contos, owner of NY's "Smooth Synergy" spa to speak about her FemiLift vagina rejuvenation treatment and to try it herself.

A life-changing event

What if, 30 minutes after your wedding was supposed to start, the best man shows up and announces that the groom is not coming? This type of sudden, severe, and tragic event can completely crush our balance, make us utterly vulnerable, and force us into a life forever changed. Nearly 20 years ago, Nicole Contos was that bride left at the altar. She was devastated, but not only did she survive this heartbreaking event, she thrived and created a brand new, decidedly unusual life. She decided to go forward with the reception, which was now transformed into a celebration of living life through positivity.” Since that confusing and temporarily life-crushing day, Nicole continued soaking in this wisdom of positivity by surrounding herself with family and friends and stubbornly believing in the truth and strength of her own identity.  

A happy ending

These days, she can be found at her successful female-empowering Cosmedical Spa called Smooth Synergy in New York City. She owns and operates the spa with her husband of more than 15 years, George Liakeas. Together, they have created something they call the “FemiLift Vagina Rejuvenation treatment,” which is a treatment designed to increase natural vaginal lubrication, improve mild urinary stress incontinence, and even tighten the vaginal walls to help increase pleasure and the likelihood of orgasm during intercourse. The process is pretty painless and takes only a few minutes, so while I visited Nicole and Dr. George in New York for this interview, I decided to give it a try. (Afterwards, I was little sore for about 24 hours, but then I felt great. I give their vagina rejuvenation treatment two thumbs up!)

DO YOU HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT FEMILIFT TREATMENT 06 Nov

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?

Three days.

 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.
  • Breast cancer survivors that can't be treated with hormones for any of the above indications.

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.

“Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) is a widespread syndrome in women”… 19 Oct

Interview with Dr. Femopase about Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation with Alma Pixel CO2 femopase2 Treatment of genital areas within the aesthetic medicine has not only left any form of tabooing behind it but has also won a continuous increasing relevance in the past years.Thus in 2012 around 7.000 surgeries have been performed on the genital area only in Germany. We interviewed Prof. Dr. Gabriel Alberto Femopase from the University of Cordoba, Argentina (UNC) about his practical experiences with the usage of the CO₂ Laser in the case of treatments of two different feminine indications. In your clinic, you are offering a wide spectrum of surgical and aesthetical surgical procedures. What are these treatments? Prof. Femopase: In our private clinic, we offer a range of therapeutic options for pathologies of the lower genital tract, vulvovaginal reconstruction (hypertrophy of labia minora, lifting of the clitoris, vulvar correction, reconstruction of pelvic muscle floor and vaginal tightening with intimate aesthetic Surgery). Another important indication is Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) that can be effectively treated. All procedures are done using the FemiLift CO2 Laser System. How important is vaginal tightening or intimate aesthetic surgery to women in the 21st century? Prof. Femopase: The concept of quality of life is now more present in our society and sexual aspects are taken more into account by women. This results in more frequent consultations about restorative surgical alternatives. For example, obstetric damages result in hyper-laxity and sensitivity alterations that are generated by damage to regional innervations, hypogastric nerve, pelvic and pudendal. This produces in 80% of women over 40 years of age some degree of sexual sensitive response dysfunction. These procedures are offered as an effective and ethical solution for these conditions. Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) is a widespread syndrome in women. What are your experiences in treating these women with the vaginal probe and the Alma CO2? Prof. Femopase: SUI is another reason for very frequent consultations in daily gynecology and the use of the specially designed Alma device is an excellent option to treat this pathology. The technique is completely outpatient, low cost and does not require anesthesia, giving great results in short and long terms. Which advantages does the laser procedure have? Are there any risks? What are possible side effects? Prof. Femopase: The advantages we obtain by these procedures are many: treatment is pain-free, minimally invasive, outpatient, high success rate percentage, and quick recovery, not affecting normal activities for the patient. Regarding possible complications, they are nearly inexistent if the professional use the established protocols by our research group together with Alma. Is the laser procedure able to solve the problem of SUI alone or are other actions to be taken? Prof. Femopase: The procedure used for SUI with Alma Lasers are highly safe and effective (with minimal side effects compared with surgical procedures as vaginal sling procedures) but other considerations like hormonal correction could be added to adjust estrogen deficit by hormonal therapies, Kegel exercises to rehabilitate the pelvic floor, etc. What is the ratio of the cost of laser treatment What is the ratio of the cost of laser treatment compared to surgery? Prof. Femopase: The cost difference is very big due to the possibility to perform the procedures in an outpatient way without the need of hospital stay, anesthesia etc. We also should consider the lower social cost due to patients returning to work and personal activities immediately. Do you use the vaginal laser for other indications? Prof. Femopase: The device is used in all surgical vaginal procedures that require a modification of its tension and improved vaginal blood supply and lubrication. Women that undergo FemiLift treatment will be less susceptible to vaginal infections. In addition, FemiLift treatment is associated with a significant improvement of sexual function. Women who suffer from Stress Urinary Incontinence have a good chance to achieve significant improvement with minimal side effects. Femilift system_new-color

A FemiLift roundtable discussion with Gynecologists and Urogynecologists from around the globe.

A roundtable discussion, held in Rome on April 2016, aimed to collect information from gynecologists and urogynecologists around the globe, who bring years of experience in treating thousands of women for the genitourinary syndromes of menopause (GSM)-related symptoms. All participants have been using the FemiLift – Pixel/Fractionated CO2 laser for several months/years.

 QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

What is your overall impression? What are the main indications for which you find benefits from the FemiLift Procedures?

Prof. Yona Tadir Having 40 years of experience with laser treatment in gynecology, and in developing tools and treatment protocols for minimally invasive surgery, I have to admit that my initial reaction to publications on “vaginal rejuvenation” was somewhat skeptical However, the results looked "too good to be true…. We face a significant breakthrough in women’s health".

Dr. Alexandros Bader

…" I see some differences in patient preference, namely, patient priorities differ from one culture to another. For example, in the U.K., it is easier to discuss SUI as compared to Greece…"

Dr. Martinec Ksenjia

The last 27 months, 388 procedures performed with the FemiLift for SUI and vaginal laxity (VL) The procedure is very simple and the system is user-friendly. The main indication in which I see the benefit for the patients is in treating mild to moderate SUI and an improvement on vaginal laxity and dryness, as well. The most significant improvement was on SUI symptoms after coughing & sneezing. Among the 94 patients, 52 reported VL pre-treatment. In this group, 16 reported no VL following the treatment." (17%).

Prof. Scollo Paolo

Dr. Scibilia Giuseppe "The laser procedures are very simple… This treatment concept opens a wide range of potential applications in treating GSM symptoms, including SUI

Prof. Femopase Gabriel

"Out of 131 patients, ages 35-60, 82% of the patients reported a significant decrease in the frequency of SUI-related events, and all patients noted improvement in their quality of life as related to their urinary problems. It is an ambulatory, fast painless and easy procedure."

Dr. Jorge Elias

The FemiLift procedure is easy and user-friendly… I used the Pixel/Fractional CO2 laser for other indications, with good results. These include dyspareunia caused by vulvar and vaginal atrophy, vaginal tightening in young women, and post-partum dyspareunia.

What is stress urinary leakage ? 24 Apr

What is Stress Incontinence?

Stress Urinary incontinence means you leak urine when you increase the pressure on the bladder. SUI occurs when an activity, such coughing, sneezing, laughing or exercise, causes a small amount of urine to leak from the urethra, which is the tube urine passes through. This condition is caused by a loss of strength in the urethra due to a weakened pelvic support structure. With stress incontinence, movements and activities put greater abdominal pressure on the bladder. That causes the leakage of urine. Over time, especially after childbirth, vaginal tissue can overstretch, create a feeling of looseness (laxity) and reduced sensitivity in the vaginal area. If you have stress incontinence, you may feel embarrassed, isolate yourself, or limit your social life, especially exercise and leisure activities. With treatment, you'll likely be able to manage stress incontinence and improve your overall well-being. FemiLift treats the entire area, supporting the urethra, increasing the thickness of the vaginal walls and strengthening the pelvic support structure. The treatment reduces the symptoms of SUI and effectively restores urinary continence. It takes only 30-minute procedure with little to no downtime and minimal side effects. This is how it works:

A Survivor Shares The Hardest Part Of Sex After Breast Cancer 14 Feb

A breast cancer survivor shares her story

Breast cancer and its treatments wreak all sorts of havoc on the body. Survivors (a group that includes me) know that hair falls out from chemotherapy, skin gets burned from radiation, and breasts never look or feel the same again. We call this “collateral damage.” But we’re rarely warned about other brutal symptoms: vaginal dryness, itching, burning, and painful intercourse, which can mess with our sex lives for years.
