Breast cancer treatments can take their toll on the female body in several unpleasant ways and many survivors notice a reduction in their libido, as well as increased dryness in their vagina. Due to chemotherapy treatment, many women experience “medically-induced menopause” which causes a marked reduction in estrogen production. This can cause the tissue in the vaginal area to become thinner and drier. Vaginal atrophy is often a debilitating condition that results in recurrent infections, painful intercourse, discomfort and intense itching.
Many women find that hormone replacement therapy treatment with estrogen makes the sometimes aggressive transition into menopause much more gentle and comfortable. However, estrogen therapy is not currently available to women who have had breast cancer and are in remission.
How FemiLift Can Help Breast Cancer Survivors
Thankfully, there are alternative options for the thousands of women suffering from these uncomfortable symptoms. Topical creams and lubricants can help in giving temporary relief, but they are not a long-term solution to the problem.
The FemiLift laser technology makes it easy for women to rejuvenate the damaged tissues of the vagina. The procedure is minimally invasive and takes just under 30 minutes. Many patients report noticing positive improvements immediately after their first treatment.
How does it work?
The FemiLift utilizes CO2 laser technology that creates thermal heat to boost collagen production and thicken the vaginal walls. Vaginal dryness and itching are effectively treated, as well as the symptoms of urinary incontinence thanks to the stimulation of healthy tissue regeneration.
The innovative FemiLift treatment is FDA-approved, minimally invasive and entirely painless. It quickly and efficiently restores the vagina to its youthful state, and the best part is, there is no downtime associated with this procedure. Normal activity can be resumed immediately after treatment and the benefits include increased sexual gratification, natural lubrication and of course, better elasticity in the vagina.
