What Could Go Wrong With FemiLift Vaginal Rejuvenation?

Updated: Nov 28, 2023

Being truly prepared for something means understanding every possibility; a great outcome, a neutral outcome, and an adverse outcome. And so it's only natural to find yourself wondering what could go wrong with FemiLift treatment when considering having it. In this article you'll learn about adverse outcomes with FemiLift, while truthfully there are not many, and why they happen. Keep reading to find out what you could do to significantly minimise the risk of adverse reactions after your FemiLift.

What Adverse Outcomes Can Happen with FemiLift?

There are 3 adverse outcomes that could happen with your FemiLift, and they are:

Infection After FemiLift

Infection is the most common adverse reaction following a FemiLift treatment, but it is actually very avoidable. This is because the main cause of these infections is improper aftercare for the treated area; follow these 4 rules after FemiLift treatment to minimise your risk of infection and get the best results possible.

A rule of thumb is to make sure you don't have a current infection before having FemiLift. Tell your practitioner if you do, and you may be prescribed a course of antibiotics prior to beginning treatment.

Contact your gynaecologist or FemiLift provider if you're experiencing any of these symptoms of post-treatment infection:

  • Fishy smelling discharge.

  • Pain and excess bleeding.

  • Any kind of fever.

While the infection can be treated well with a course of antibiotics, you should act quickly to avoid any potential complications.

Burn from FemiLift Mistreatment

The idea behind the FemiLift laser is to gently heat the tissue, commonly referred to as a "controlled burn". This shouldn't be painful during treatment, and it shouldn't be continuously painful during recovery. You may feel some discomfort and minor pain for less than a day, and this is what you'd expect from a normal recovery from FemiLift.

Burns occur when the area is overtreated; either the laser power is set too high, or areas are lasered for too long. Contact your gynaecologist or FemiLift provider if you are on a significant amount of pain during the recovery period, or suspect you may have a post-treatment burn.

Lack of Results from FemiLift

A lack of results is most commonly a result of an infection or a burn, but it can also occur due to undertreatment.

The treated area cannot recover optimally when you have an infection or burn post-treatment. As you'd imagine this will significantly impair your results, as the purpose of the controlled burn is to activate your body's natural healing process to recover to an improved state than before.

When undertreated your body's healing process is not quite activated enough. You will recover, but not to a significant degree that brings about improvement to your symptoms. This is not the only reason that you may not experience benefits from treatment, but it is the most common explanation.

You should now have a great idea of what could possibly go wrong after FemiLift treatment. While adverse events are very rare it's best to just be aware of all of the possibilities of treatment, not just the good ones.
