Q&A with Dr. Weiss
+ Is there any downtime following my vaginal rejuvenation procedure?
Most patients return to normal, daily activities shortly following their procedure. However, sexual intercourse should be avoided for 5 days. A patient who is treated on a Monday may have sex by Friday night.
+ Am I a candidate if I’m post-menopausal and will I get relief from my vaginal dryness?
Laser vaginal tightening is ideal for the post-menopausal woman. FemiLift promotes collagen production and remodeling in the vagina, which in turn results in a return of the rugae, or architecture, that is lost with menopause. Women report improved lubrication and a decrease in pain associated with penetration. With FemiLift, there is a return of a more youthful vagina.
+ Are there any side effects I should know about?
Women should be prepared to experience increased vaginal sensation and pleasure following each treatment. Vaginal lubrication may improve and orgasms may become more intense. Associated risks are minimal. Some women may experience a watery discharge or spotting for only a day or two. Any concerns you may have will be discussed during your consultation.
