What is vaginal atrophy?
Vaginal atrophy is a condition that causes the lining of the vagina to become thin, dry, and inflamed due to a decrease in estrogen. Less estrogen causes the vaginal tissues to become lax and fragile. Ample hormone levels are also responsible for keeping the vagina moist and healthy. Without proper lubrication, the vaginal walls become dry. This can lead to uncomfortable symptoms, like discomfort during sex and itching.
Although a drop in estrogen can occur during breastfeeding and while on certain medications, like oral birth control, low levels are common during the years leading up to and during menopause. In some cases, estrogen may not drop until a few years after menopause has begun.
Vaginal atrophy symptoms
Some of the most common signs and symptoms associated with vaginal atrophy include:
- Vaginal burning
- Vaginal dryness
- Genital itching
- Frequent urination
- Pain when urinating
- Urinary incontinence
- Frequent UTIs
- Decreased vaginal lubrication
Vaginal atrophy after menopause
Vaginal atrophy is a common occurrence for many women who are going through menopause. It’s a normal part of getting older, but thankfully, it can be treated.
What is FemiLift?
Xage Medical Spa is pleased to offer FemiLift to address vaginal atrophy. FemiLift is a vaginal rejuvenation treatment that utilizes state-of-the-art technology to stimulate collagen and elastin production, which increases the thickness of the vaginal wall. This treatment not only strengthens the vaginal tissues but also tightens the vaginal lining, boosts lubrication, and promotes blood circulation.
What to expect after a FemiLift treatment?
After a FemiLift treatment, most women experience a noticeable improvement in the health of their vagina. Our Provo, UT patients often report increased lubrication, greater comfort during sex, and a decrease in involuntary urination.
How many FemiLift treatments do I need?
While great results are achieved with just a single FemiLift treatment. Dr. Porter usually recommends 1 – 3 treatments to achieve optimal outcomes. Treatments are usually spaced one month apart and take about 30 minutes to complete.
Will it hurt?
No. FemiLift is a nonsurgical treatment that uses controlled light energy to target the inner lining of the vagina without harming the surrounding tissues. Most patients report feeling little to no discomfort during treatment.
Any required downtime?
No. Since FemiLift is not a surgical procedure, there is no required downtime. This is another benefit of undergoing this vaginal rejuvenation procedure.
How soon will I experience results?
Most women will notice a difference right away, but results will continue to improve over the next few weeks following your initial treatment. Optimal outcomes are generally seen after a few months.
How long do results last?
On average, results from a FemiLift treatment usually last about 18 months. We generally recommend yearly treatments to maintain the desired results.
When can I have sex again?
Following a FemiLift treatment, women often ask when they can resume sexual activity. Dr. Porter usually recommends that patients wait 2 – 3 days before having sex. This is a minor precaution to prevent any unwanted discomfort.
