Did You Know…
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The word “Cosmetic” is derived from the Greek word “Kosmos” which means “of this world.”
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.
The same laser that is used for hair removal, can get rid of toe nail fungus.

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.
