The simple process of aging affects every aspect of the body, including intimate areas like the vagina. Changes to the vagina over time can impact more than your appearance; they can also result in dryness and discomfort in this sensitive area. Now, there is a nonsurgical method of vaginal rejuvenation that reverses these changes and the uncomfortable symptoms that often accompany them. Tidal Wellness features the revolutionary FemiLift for women looking to turn back the clock on their most personal areas.
FemiLift is a safe, noninvasive vaginal rejuvenation treatment used to improve the appearance and function of the female private area. This state-of-the-art device corrects intimate issues that occur from childbirth or aging such as looseness and wrinkled appearance of the labia (vaginal lips), painful or decreased sensation with intercourse, weakening of the vaginal muscles, and urinary incontinence. FemiLift shrinks, tightens and rejuvenates the entire area inside and out. The device uses CO2 energy, which emits gentle heat that stimulates collagen to remodel and tissue to shrink.MicroChanneling Radio Frequency Energy Treatments
With the effects of menopause, aging, and childbirth, the tissue and skin of the inner and outer vagina can lose elasticity, causing functional complications. Laser vaginal rejuvenation with Alma FemiLift utilizes a laser to tighten the inner vagina and address issues, such as vaginal dryness, stress incontinence, and sexual health issues. When undergoing laser vaginal rejuvenation, we stimulate the production of collagen by warming the inner and outer vaginal tissue. This exciting, noninvasive treatment enhances the beauty of your vaginal area and reduces a variety of uncomfortable symptoms. For more information about laser vaginal rejuvenation at Tidal Wellness in Wilmington, NC, please schedule a consultation with Dr. Erin Griffin.
Does laser vaginal rejuvenation work?
Laser vaginal rejuvenation can reduce vaginal laxity, enhance comfort, increase lubrication, and address other feminine health problems. It may also improve the beauty and texture. An increasing number of patients choose to have this procedure because of its beautiful results and minimal recovery time.
Does laser vaginal rejuvenation treat loose skin?
Laser vaginal rejuvenation works well for patients who want to increase elasticity inside the vagina. Factors, such as childbirth, significant weight loss, or even aging, can place stress on the vagina and cause laxity. However, we can reduce these issues with laser treatment. Women who experience sagging tissue, like overly large or lengthened vaginal lips, may require an aesthetic surgery, such as labiaplasty. This surgery removes the sagging skin on the outer lips and helps patients feel more confident in the appearance of their vagina.
Can I combine laser vaginal rejuvenation with other procedures?
Women who recently gave birth or lost a significant amount of weight may combine laser vaginal rejuvenation with additional treatments to address skin laxity and other conditions. For a complete transformation, you may want to combine laser vaginal rejuvenation with a mommy makeover, vaginal tightening, a tummy tuck, or a breast lift. Additionally, patients often combine labiaplasty and laser vaginal rejuvenation to boost functionality while enhancing the appearance of their outer vaginal area.
What is the recovery like for laser vaginal rejuvenation?
During your initial consultation at Tidal Wellness, we will let you know how many sessions you need to attain the best results. With only a little discomfort or recovery time, you can often resume your daily activities after the procedure. To help the vaginal tissue rejuvenate itself, patients should avoid using tampons or having sexual intercourse for 3 – 4 days after their procedure.
Many women live with a disorder called endometriosis that can cause intense pain and significantly impact their overall health and well-being. This condition happens because of a hormone imbalance or other events, like post-hysterectomy complications or C-sections. Endometriosis occurs when the endometrium (the inner layer of the uterus) starts forming outside the uterine cavity so it becomes blocked without a means to exit the body during your menstrual cycle. This can cause excruciating menstrual cramps in addition to the development of ovarian cysts and scar tissue adhesions. At Tidal Wellness, Dr. Erin Griffin uses the Alma FemiLift Pixel CO2 laser system to help address the symptoms associated with endometriosis and increase your chances of getting pregnant.

Can you get rid of endometriosis?
If you suffer from endometriosis, you probably know that the condition does not have a cure. However, you can help manage your symptoms with specific treatments, like removing endometrial tissue or using hormonal therapies. Although these options offer significant improvement, your symptoms can still return within a year or two.
Does laser endometriosis treatment lead to weight loss?
Treating the abnormal tissue can reduce bloating, which is a symptom of endometriosis. Based on the severity of your bloating, the treatment could help with weight loss.
What are the benefits of laser endometriosis treatment?
Compared to traditional surgical procedures, laser treatments are not as invasive. The laser allows for faster healing and less pain. Additionally, the treatment can ease common symptoms of endometriosis, like pain and bloating, and increase your chances of becoming pregnant.
Does endometriosis cause fatigue?
When your body has endometriosis, your immune system makes the affected tissues release cell-signaling proteins called cytokines. This process leads to low levels of energy and exhaustion. Unfortunately, it can make you feel like you don't have the strength to continue your daily routine.
At Tidal Wellness, our caring group understands the difficulty and awkwardness you may experience when dealing with urinary incontinence. Also referred to as lack of bladder control, the issue can happen when physical stress occurs in the bladder, such as sneezing, coughing, laughing, or engaging in strenuous activity. This unintentional condition often happens because of changes in the body during menopause, pregnancy, and childbirth. Even though it is more common in women, men can also experience this issue. Dr. Erin Griffin utilizes the Alma FemiLift Pixel CO2 laser device to treat urinary incontinence. This minimally invasive procedure stimulates your body's collagen and elastin production, which can strengthen your bladder muscles and reduce urges. Proudly serving Wilmington, Jacksonville, Pender County, Leland, and Hampstead, NC, please contact our team to learn more and schedule an appointment with Dr. Griffin.
How many treatments will I need?
The exact number of sessions needed to address your symptoms will change based on your particular problem. In general, most people will need 2 – 3 sessions spread out over 3 – 4 weeks. As soon as Dr. Griffin has an opportunity to sit down with you and identify your symptoms at Tidal Wellness in Wilmington, NC, we can then help you get a more detailed outline of the treatment process.
What are the different types and causes of urinary incontinence?
All of us have specialized nerves and muscles in our bodies that help the bladder pass urine. If these muscles and nerves become damaged, it may dramatically impact our ability to hold in urine. Females have a higher chance of experiencing urinary incontinence because of childbirth, pregnancy, and menopause. There are numerous categories of urinary incontinence, such as:
Is urinary incontinence permanent?
No, patients can treat urinary incontinence with many different approaches. In some cases, such as if the person is suffering from a UTI, vaginal infection, or constipation, it will likely recover on its own as soon as the urinary tract has fully healed. More severe cases can require attention that could range from several weeks or months, depending on several factors. These issues generally arise when a patient has weak pelvic floor muscles or damage to the nerves.
