Did You Know…
A tan can absorb some of the energy of laser light and prevent the laser light from reaching the hair follicle. Do not get a tan before laser hair removal.
In the 1450s, women would shave their pubic hair to get rid of lice. And then they would have a pubic hair wig made as a replacement.
Neurotoxins are medications developed from the bacteria known as clostridium botulinum. Researchers noticed that people infected with this bacterium had suffered muscle weakness. Dysport and Botox have been developed from this discovery.
The light from a hair removal laser passes through the skin and is absorbed by the hair follicle. The laser energy is absorbed by the hair follicle and is destroyed. Since people have different skin colors, we need to have lasers with a variety of colors of laser light.
The same laser that is used for hair removal, can get rid of toe nail fungus.
The word “Cosmetic” is derived from the Greek word “Kosmos” which means “of this world.”
The idea behind the CoolSculpt machine started after doctors noticed that children who sucked on popsicles lost the fat in their cheeks without damage to the skin. It is amazing what can develop from a simple observation.
Just before the laser is fired, a jet of frozen air is sent to the skin to protect the skin from the laser energy and to decrease the pain.
In the past some doctors tried to dye the patient hair dark so that more of the laser energy would be absorbed by the hair and thereby the laser would more effectively remove the hair. Unfortunately, it did not work because the dye did not reach the hair follicle.

FemiLift

Does FemiLift™ Have Side Effects or Risks?

Non-Surgical Solution For Vaginal Tightening

For many years, women had very few options for vaginal tightening. And, none of them were ideal in terms of addressing urinary incontinence or enhanced sexual pleasure. Doing Kegel exercises helps, but doesn’t provide an immediate or remarkably measureable difference and only affects certain vaginal muscles. Surgery is a major undertaking that involves downtime and a risk for common complications associated with any surgical procedure.

Then FemiLift with Alma’s CO2 laser came along, giving women a truly practical option with proven results, no risks and little to no side effects. Hallelujah!

FemiLift is a laser resurfacing of the vagina. The laser emits energy that promotes and stimulates collagen production to strengthen muscles – muscles that lose elasticity after childbirth and as women age. For middle-aged women who’ve had children and in menopause, it’s a double whammy that makes sex less pleasurable and stress urinary incontinence a problem. FemiLift tackles both.

Okay, So What is the Catch, Risks or Side Effects of FemiLift?

With the FDA-approved FemiLift procedure, you have everything to gain and nothing to lose. Though the treatment is more effective for some women than others, FemiLift won’t make stress urinary incontinence worse or leave vaginal muscles looser than they were before the procedure.

There are very few side effects and risks associated with FemiLift. It is a laser treatment following many of the same safety protocols that apply when using it on other parts of the body, like the face for laser skin resurfacing. A FemiLift treatment shouldn’t be performed if you have an active infection, take blood thinners, have a connective tissue disorder, or take medication that could interfere with the healing process. It’s important to review all of these with our staff.

There is no risk of infection since the CO2 laser wand looks a bit like an internal ultrasound wand. It’s covered with a sterile, one-time use, disposable cover. Unlike when used for skin rejuvenation, this laser treatment does not cause any peeling in the vagina. And, even though FemiLift uses thermal heat, the temperature is lower when used for vaginal tightening so it’s completely painless, takes just 10 to 15 minutes and has no downtime.

Non-Surgical Treatment for Stress Uninary Incontinence

Can Femilift™ Treat Stress Urinary Incontinence?

Kegels, schmegels. They’re not helping. You’ve stopped wearing light-colored pants because you’re afraid a little urine might leave a wet spot when you cough or sneeze. You’ve told your girlfriends on more than one occasion not to make you laugh or you might pee yourself. Little do they know you’re serious. You’ve resorted to wearing maxi pads or panty liners rather than deal with wet underwear.

So many women, of all ages, deal with the stress and embarrassment of stress urinary incontinence (SUI). So many women think it’s the price of motherhood or a natural part of aging. Child birth and aging are leading causes of SUI, but you don’t have to worry about it every time you cough, sneeze or laugh anymore. If stress urinary incontinence is affecting your life, it’s time to consider the FemiLift™.

How FemiLift™ Treats SUI

As we age, collagen is naturally depleted, which is why our faces (and vaginas) aren’t as tight as they once were. For younger women, childbirth can stretch vaginal muscles and lead to SUI.

FemiLift is an FDA-approved, non-surgical treatment for stress urinary incontinence using Alma’s CO2 laser. Similar to skin resurfacing, think of this procedure is laser resurfacing for the vagina. A slender vaginal probe safely emits laser energy in the vaginal canal – full length and circumference. This energy promotes and stimulates collagen production, just as it does when used for laser skin resurfacing. The result is a tightening of the muscles in the area. Since the CO2 laser promotes collagen, ligaments supporting surrounding the bladder and urethra are strengthened and reduces the leakage due to stress urinary incontinence.

Fremont Laser invested in Alma’s CO2 laser because we listened to our patients.

Another benefit beyond freedom from “peeing your pants?” Improved sexual experiences. Since FemiLift tightens vaginal muscles, sexual sensation is heightened.

The Gym for the Vagina

FemiLift, the “Designer Vagina Treatment,” is Here

You may have already heard about FemiLift. It goes by many names including, the “gym for the vagina,” “the lunch break vagina procedure,” and “the designer vagina treatment.”

FemiLift is being praised as revolutionary because it’s fast, painless, non-invasive, and more importantly, it gets great results. FemiLift uses lasers to achieve great results.   Doctors and patients alike are indeed very impressed the outcome. But who exactly is a candidate for a FemiLift? More than you might think… and you may be one of them.

Women Who Want Vaginal Tightening

Childbirth and age often cause weakness and laxity of the vagina.  This is aggravated by the loss of hormone production after menopause.  Sex is often no longer enjoyable.  The FemiLift offers great results for vaginal laxity. It uses Alma lasers to create new tissue and collagen, which results in increased vaginal thickness and elasticity. After a few FemiLift treatments, many women report that their vagina feels “18 again.”

Women Who Experience Vaginal Dryness

Vaginal dryness is loaded with problems. It can be painful and cause pain during sex for both you and your partner. Women can suffer from this dryness for lots of different reasons, including hormones, medications, age, irritants, lack of arousal, anxiety, stress and other psychological issues. It can be very frustrating and can seriously hinder your sexual life—but that’s one of the areas where FemiLift can help.

The same science that helps the vagina regain its elasticity can also help it regain its lubrication. By delivering the right amount of Alma laser energy, the collagen in vaginal tissues is increased, resulting in greater vaginal lubrication.

Women Who Suffer from Incontinence

Oh, the fun our bodies can go through. Stress urinary incontinence is caused by things like pregnancy, giving birth, menopause, weakened bladder muscles, and some pelvic surgeries. Despite popular belief, it is not caused by stress but by weakness.  Leaking urine is an embarrassing and frustrating condition. Who wants to wear a pad all the time. Which is why more and more women are opting for the Femilift treatment.  Just think, being able to cough, laugh, or sneeze in peace… ahhh.

FemiLift solves incontinence problems for thousands of women because the Alma lasers firm the supporting muscles and tissues under the bladder. It can take a few sessions, but results have been very successful.

If you’re considering this treatment, give us a call and see why patients are so satisfied with the results that FemiLift offers. At Fremont Laser & Skin Care, we are happy to answer all your questions! To learn more or schedule an appointment, call us or contact us here.

Vaginal Laxity and Urinary Incontinence Treatment Options Increase with FemiLift

Fremont & Monterey, CA – May 17, 2017- Women suffering from vaginal laxity, dryness, or urinary incontinence now have more treatment options available. Dr. William H. Brown is pleased to announce the arrival of the FemiLift Laser Treatment to both the Fremont and Monterey practices.

FemiLift is a non-surgical procedure that utilizes a laser to rejuvenate and tighten the vaginal walls. Painless, more economical, and quicker than other vaginal rejuvenation options, FemiLift requires virtually no recovery time.

The FemiLift uses a small handheld device to distribute heat to the vaginal canal, encouraging the production of collagen tissue, which strengthens and lubricates the vaginal walls. As a result, patients will see a notable improvement in vaginal tightness, lubrication, and even sensation.

“I’m so happy to offer this treatment to our clients. Vaginal laxity is a very common, yet highly unreported, problem for many women. FemiLift changes that. It’s an easy procedure, but the results are profoundly life-changing.”
