FemiLift & Breast Cancer

Pink_Ribbon_(Transparent)FemiLift & Breast Cancer

The lifesaving treatments for breast cancer can affect a woman’s quality of life in unexpected ways. Chemotherapy and other hormone blocking medications can induce the onset of menopausal symptoms. The lack of estrogen causes the vaginal tissue to thin, become fragile and lose its natural lubrication and elasticity. This often results in itching, burning, painful intercourse and, in some women, recurring urinary infections.

Vaginal dryness is a particular problem and can lead to uncomfortable intimate relations. This is especially frustrating for breast cancer survivors as the only available treatment until this time was estrogen therapy. Estrogen is not usually recommended for breast cancer survivors due to the risk of recurrence. Fortunately, there is an alternative therapy for vaginal revitalization that can help millions of women who are silently suffering and unable to undergo other treatment options.

About the FemiLift treatment

FemiLift is a minimally invasive CO2 laser procedure that stimulates the development of new vascularity and collagen formation in the vagina. Through the use of thermal energy, rejuvenation occurs in the tissues and reduces the pain of intimacy. This procedure has helped many breast cancer survivors overcome their feminine concerns and return to living a normal life.

FemiLift also has the added advantage of being virtually painless and quick. Each treatment takes just 15 minutes to perform and patients do not need to undergo any type of anesthesia. On completion of each treatment, normal daily activity can be resumed right away although we recommend abstaining from penetrative intercourse for approximately 4 days.

Most patients achieve lasting results after a series of 3 treatments. Some women require a rejuvenation boost at 12-18 months.

The results of FemiLift are powerful, making discomfort caused by feminine issues a thing of the past. For patients with breast cancer, FemiLift is a source of relief for painful feminine issues and can help them return to feeling normal again.
