About Vaginal Rejuvenation
Through the side effects of aging, childbirth, and menopause, the skin and tissue of the internal and external vaginal areas can become slack, causing functional difficulties. Nonsurgical vaginal tightening with Alma's FemiLift technology uses a CO2 laser to tighten the inside of the vagina and treat issues such as vaginal dryness, stress incontinence, and some sexual dysfunctions. During a nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation procedure, the body’s natural collagen production is stimulated by heating the exterior and interior of the vaginal tissue. It is a good noninvasive option to help restore appearance and treat some medical conditions. To learn more about nonsurgical vaginal tightening, schedule a consultation with medical director Dr. Melanie Carreon at LCS Medical Spa in Seguin, near New Braunfels, San Marcos, San Antonio and Austin TX.

You may be an ideal candidate for nonsurgical vaginal tightening if you are looking to address certain vaginal issues or appearances without having to undergo plastic surgery. This procedure can help to tighten your vaginal canal, improves urinary control, increases natural vaginal moisture and lubrication, decreases sexual discomfort, and enhances sexual arousal and orgasm. It is also able to create results with no downtime. Most individuals return to their daily activities immediately following treatment.
Nonsurgical vaginal tightening is an in-office procedure that can take 15 – 30 minutes to complete. No anesthesia is generally needed for the treatment. For the procedure, the FemiLift wand applicator will be slowly waved over the exterior of your labia and vulvar tissues. The wand may also be inserted into your vagina as it emits strong ablative CO2 energy to the tissues and other internal structures to stimulate collagen, which tightens the area. A built-in thermometer is included on the wand to adjust the temperature as needed for comfort, controlled safety, and accuracy.
What to Expect
After the FemiLIft, you can resume your normal activities the same day and return to sexual activity in 3 days. For optimal results, Dr. Carreon recommends that you receive three treatments set one month apart. Most patients will notice results after the first or second session, while some may not notice them for up to three months following the procedure. These results can last up to around 18 months, but annual touch-ups and follow-up treatments are recommended to preserve them.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does this cost?
Laser technology has come very far in recent years, helping to bring the costs down. Laser vaginal tightening is priced based on what is being addressed and how many sessions are needed to achieve the appropriate outcome. We realize this procedure is an important process for many women as they gain back their confidence and improve the look, feel, and function of their intimate area. Therefore, we work with our patients on flexible payment plans and financing so they can afford and achieve the results they need and desire.
Does it work?
Yes, it also helps with overall sexual dysfunction due to dryness, looseness, and other issues. It also helps improve the aesthetic look and feel. More and more women are turning to this procedure because of its outcomes and minimal recovery downtime.
Does it treat loose skin?
Laser vaginal tightening is recommended for women who seek a higher degree of vaginal tightness within the vaginal walls. Events such as childbirth, a massive weight loss, or even aging can strain the internal muscles and create laxity, which can be improved with laser treatment. Women who have loose skin, such as an oversized or stretched labia majora, may be better candidates for a surgical procedure such as labiaplasty.
Is it painful?
Typically most patients do not experience any extreme discomfort as the treatment is quick and relatively comfortable.
What is the recovery like?
During your consultation, we will discuss with you how many sessions it will take to get the best results. There is no pain or downtime associated with the use of this laser. You should be able to resume your day as normal after the appointment. We do recommend refraining from using tampons or engaging in sexual intercourse for several days after the treatment to allow the treated area to properly heal.
Restore your Confidence
