Some patients may experience some discomfort during the procedure. It is similar to having a smear test done.

You will be asked to abstain from penetrative intercourse for 7-10 days.

Some may experience spot bleeding that may last for up to 24 hours.

The equipment that comes into contact with patients inside and outside the vagina is a single-use sterile disposable probe that prevents the transmission of infections. The energy that is used to bring about the desired tightening effect or correct urinary incontinence is in the form of a specialised laser that induces new collagen to form in the underlying vaginal tissues. Treatment outcome is complete vaginal remodelling and tightening of the vagina walls with enhanced elasticity.

Femilift is effective for 3-5 years. If you are planning a pregnancy within three years or less, we suggest that you wait until after the birth.

Single-use disposable probes prevent any risk of infection during transmission.

No, it will not make it worse, but if you are prone to getting thrush, then it would be advisable to purchase an over-the-counter treatment, about 2 to 3 days prior to your planned laser treatment.

It is advisable not to have it during your period as the blood may interfere with the penetration of the laser into the vaginal skin and make it less effective.

This treatment has not been associated with any worsening of cystitis type symptoms such as increased urination frequency or burning sensation when passing water.

In most cases yes but if you suffer from intense deep pelvic pain during intercourse then the gynaecologist may advise against it. Fill out the online medical history questionnaire when booking your appointment and if you are likely to be a suitable candidate the appointment will be made.

It is advisable to check with the Gynaecologist first.

It is better to have this checked out and treated before you have Femilift. The quickest way to arrange this is to attend the local genito-urinary medicine (GUM) clinic.

The laser probe is inserted full length into the vagina up to the cervix about 6-8 cm deep. The laser light beam travels about 0.5 mm (usually about 200 micron) into the vaginal skin.

CO2 lasers have been used for the past 30 years and have shown to be safe and effective for many applications including Gynaecology. It is mandatory that equipment be used by a trained physician.

Most exercises can be continued after 7 days but strenuous exercises should be avoided for up to 14 days.

We think that about 90% of patients will have a good response in 3-5 treatments. The doctor will prescribe the correct course of treatment for your condition following the initial assessment.

Treatment effectiveness can last up to 3 years. You may then require top-up treatment sessions to maintain the tightening and control.

It may help with mild prolapse but is unlikely to prevent prolapse long-term.

In most cases, yes. If there was any mesh used to repair the prolapsed, then the gynaecologist may choose to advise against it. When booking your appointment be sure to complete the online Medical History Form, which the gynaecologist will review prior to your appointment.

No. If anything it may help to improve lubrication. Recent studies showed improvement in the dryness caused by menopausal symptoms.

After a vaginal birth, it would be advisable to wait 3 months to ensure that any scars from tears or an episiotomy have had a chance to heal and the vaginal tone has recovered naturally.

We will provide you with an aftercare advice pamphlet following treatment.
