FemiLift for stress incontinence

It’s time to talk about those things you may be uncomfortable talking about.

Urinary incontinence.

There – we said it. And we want you to feel comfortable discussing it with us.

Many people believe urinary incontinence is an indignity you just have to deal with as you age but that’s not the case. You don’t have to suffer in silence out of shame or embarrassment.

Age Management Institute in Calgary is pleased to offer Femilift, a fast, painless treatment for stress urinary incontinence.

Dr. Lizette Lourens in Calgary is the first physician in Western Canada to offer FemiLift™, an essential treatment for women’s vaginal health.

Forget the jokes about jumping on a trampoline. Seriously, how many of us do that on a daily basis?

We’re talking about how stress incontinence impacts your life every day – when sneezing, coughing, running, exercising and sometimes just having a good laugh. We want to help.

Urinary incontinence (UI) affects 33% of women over the age of 40 but only 26% have discussed it with their doctor. Nearly 50% of women suffering from UI experience stress urinary incontinence.

FemiLift™ for stress incontinence is performed in Dr. Lizette Lourens’ office at Age Management Institute in Calgary. The FemiLift™ treatment takes approximately 15 minutes to administer, is pain-free and requires no anesthesia. There is virtually no down time. You will be able to return to your daily routine immediately, however you should refrain from having vaginal sexual intercourse and using tampons for approximately three days following your treatment.

FemiLift™ consultations with Dr. Lizette Lourens are available at Age Management Institute in Calgary and Canmore. Consultations are free.

What to expect during your FemiLift™ treatment

Prior to treatment, you will meet with Dr. Lizette Lourens to discuss your challenges and determine if the treatment is right for you. A recent pap smear (within the past 1 – 2 years) is required prior to treatment and this can be administered by Dr. Lourens, if needed.

The FemiLift™ treatment uses fractional laser technology to assist in revitalizing the vaginal walls and tissue. During the treatment, a small rod containing a CO2 laser is gently inserted into the vagina. It is then carefully pulled back so that the laser treats the full length of the vaginal wall. From start to finish, you can be in and out in less than 30 minutes.

The laser tightens the vaginal walls and stimulates collagen growth in the vaginal tissue.

In addition to treating incontinence, FemiLift™ can also restore vaginal lubrication and increase vaginal tightness, improving sensation during sex.

Who is a candidate for FemiLift™?

We know that stress urinary incontinence (SUI) isn’t just for those who have had children. Other lifestyle and genetic factors can also cause incontinence, including age, weight, menopause, urinary tract infections and pelvic floor conditions including vaginal or uterine prolapse.

How long do the FemiLift™ results last?

The results are long-lasting – usually 18 months to two years or longer, depending upon your health and lifestyle.

How many FemiLift™ treatments are required for urinary stress incontinence?

The number of treatments and results will vary, depending upon the severity of your condition.

Most patients find three treatments provides optimum results for urinary incontinence, though some women may be happy with their results after one or two treatments. More severe cases may require four treatments. During your consultation, Dr. Lourens will advise you of the recommended number of sessions prior to commencing treatment.
