There’s a lot more to menopause than the ‘hot flashes’ so often talked about, because it often brings with it other unwanted side-effects. However, there’s an innovative new laser vaginal rejuvenation treatment known as FemiLift that can ease these symptoms, and bring much needed relief. But how does FemiLift work to address issues associated with menopause.
Menopausal issues that FemiLift can address
Vaginal laxity and vaginal dryness are two of the most common issues associated with menopause. The decrease in estrogen levels during menopause leads to a thinning of the vaginal walls, resulting in vaginal laxity. The decline in estrogen also reduces moisture levels in the vagina.
Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) is another common problem that affects menopausal women, and is caused by the weakening of the muscles in the pelvic area that would normally support the bladder. When these muscles become weak, unwanted leakage occurs even during simple actions such as coughing or sneezing.
How FemiLift works to address issues associated with menopause
The FemiLift treatment utilizes a cutting-edge CO2 laser. The thermal energy from the laser penetrates deep into the vaginal tissues, and triggers the regeneration of collagen. The additional collagen improves the tone and suppleness of the vaginal tissues. This causes the vaginal canal to contract, and also promotes lubrication.
FemiLift tightens the vaginal tissue and this helps to reinforce the weak muscles in the pelvic area. This makes it easier to exercise bladder control, and helps to reduce SUI.
