What is FemiLift?
FemiLift Vaginal Rejuvenation treatment is accomplished with cutting-edge laser technology that allows us to treat postmenopausal issues with a non-surgical, FDA-approved procedure.
Many women have postmenopausal concerns, such as vaginal dryness, itching, urinary incontinence, vaginal laxity, and painful intercourse. And all of these can be treated with FemiLift. Using a fractional CO2 laser, FemiLift resurfaces vaginal tissue to give you your desired effect.
What Kinds of Women Should Get FemiLift?
Laser vaginal procedures are ideal for women who have already gone through menopause. Many of the issues that a FemiLift procedure addresses are a result of the vaginal architecture that is lost through menopause symptoms. FemiLift is great for women who want to achieve a more youthful vagina, especially those aiming for increased lubrication and a decrease in painful sex.

How Is Laser Vaginal Tightening Performed?
FemiLift Laser Vaginal Tightening is performed by using a fractional CO2 laser to resurface the vaginal tissue. The laser is inserted into the vagina and will deliver energy throughout the surrounding tissue of the vagina. The laser will deliver pulses to achieve a deep thermal effect, stimulating the renewal of vaginal collagen lost through menopause. As a result, the vagina will become more elastic, rejuvenated, and feel much more youthful.
At La Belle Vie, FemiLift is only performed by the most qualified clinicians who will make you feel extremely comfortable throughout your procedure.
What Should I Expect During a FemiLift Treatment?
When you come into the La Belle Vie office, you will see why we are not only the first ones to do this Femilifit in Utah, but also the best! Only a trained medical professional can perform a FemiLift treatment.
The procedure is minimally invasive with no pain or downtime. An intra-vaginal laser will be inserted into your vaginal canal, and laser pulses will cause the canal to contract.
The entire procedure will take about 15 minutes to complete, and you can return to your normal activities immediately afterward.
What Should I Expect After a FemiLift Treatment?
You might feel mild warming sensations in your vaginal canal for 24-48 hours following your treatment. This is completely normal! You should also abstain from sexual intercourse for two days following your treatment. However, you will not need to refrain from your usual activities following FemiLift, as there is no downtime necessary! You may even feel improvements in your vaginal condition immediately following treatment.
Are There Any Complications Related to FemiLift Lasers?
There are very few risks or complications associated with FemiLift laser treatments. Some women worry it will worsen their condition. But FemiLift will not leave your vagina looser or cause more urinary incontinence than before.
There is no risk of infection because the laser is much like an internal ultrasound wand. All the equipment is thoroughly sanitized, and a sterile disposable cover is used for every procedure.
You should not proceed with this treatment if you have an active infection, are taking blood thinners, or take medication that may interfere with the procedure. Other than that, FemiLift laser treatments are very low risk.
How Much Does a FemiLift Treatment Cost?
At La Belle Vie Medspa, we offer an all-inclusive package for our FemiLift treatments. The total cost is $3,500 and includes four standard treatments plus an extra fifth treatment for those who need a “touch-up” after a year for maintenance purposes. The procedure is not currently covered by health insurance.
How Painful Is a FemiLift Treatment?
FemiLift is painless! If pain level is a significant concern for you in weighing whether or not to get this procedure, do not let that deter you. Getting a FemiLift treatment is a lot like having an internal ultrasound. And many women find it more comfortable than their annual pap smear.
Although thermal heat is used in FemiLift treatments, the temperature is lowered when the laser is used for vaginal therapies, so there is no concern about burns. Also, there is no recovery period following the procedure, so you won’t experience any pain after the fact.

How Many Sessions Are Required for an Effective FemiLift Treatment?
Most women will experience relief of their symptoms within three to four weeks of their first treatment. However, the current medical recommendation is to have three to four sessions done, each one month apart from the other, for maximum benefits.
Occasionally, more treatments may be necessary for severe incontinence or vaginal laxity. The all-inclusive package at La Belle Vie includes four treatments as well as an additional “touch-up” treatment after a year. In most cases, this package is enough for women to experience relief.
How Long Does FemiLift Last?
Presently, FemiLift has similar long-lasting effects to many other cosmetic procedures. Many women see relief from their symptoms for years following their FemiLift treatments. This is especially true if the patient does not undergo vaginal births following their treatment. However, some women will need additional treatments for maintenance if they see a resurgence of their symptoms.
At this time, La Belle Vie experts recommend that women come in for yearly maintenance appointments with FemiLift. Overall, FemiLift Vaginal Rejuvenation and Tightening procedures are an excellent way for women to maintain their sexual autonomy following menopause!
