Dryness/Uncomfortable Intercourse


What causes dryness, reoccurring infections resulting in uncomfortable intercourse?

Recent studies reveal that 75% of women do not discuss vaginal dryness with their doctor. Oestrogen is the female hormone that keeps the lining of the vagina thick and moist. When oestrogen levels lower around menopause, women experience vaginal dryness. This can result in discomfort during intercourse. Likewise, this change in oestrogen levels can trigger a pH imbalance that can lead to recurring infections.

What is FemiLift?

What is FemiLift?


FemiLift is a fractional carbon dioxide laser that is used to improve vaginal lubrication and increase the production of new collagen. The laser is delivered via a single use probe which is inserted 6-8cm into the vaginal canal.

The laser delivers energy approximately 0.5mm deep into the vaginal skin. This creates tiny, white, ablated dots of damaged tissue, which stimulates the healing response around each micro-dot. This healing causes an increased production of secretions and also causes new collagen to form, thickening the lining of the vaginal wall.

How can FemiLift help?

How can FemiLift help?


FemiLift can helps in two ways. It lubricates your vagina by stimulating the necessary secretion/glands and it creates new collagen which revives the vaginal tissue making it healthier and better equipped to fight off bacteria that can cause you discomfort.

FemiLift has been FDA-approved since 2014 for the treatment of post-menopausal vaginal atrophy with dyspareunia (thinning of the vaginal lining that occurs when oestrogen decreases after menopause).

An additional bonus is it is relatively pain-free, with most women reporting the sensation feeling on par with a smear test.

Steps to treatment

Steps to treatment


Your treatment begins with a full assessment with our registered gynaecologist Dr. Monika Antepowicz who has specialised in female reproductive health for over 25 years.

This vaginal examination is performed to check the health of your vaginal tissue so that Dr. Antepowicz can determine whether you are a suitable candidate and address any specific concerns you may have. Once approved for treatment, you can then book your first FemiLift procedure.

The number of procedures you need will depend on the condition of your vaginal tissue and what you want to achieve. Most women tend to have 3 procedures to build better collagen and enjoy longer lasting results.
