FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is unique about Liftique Blush as opposed to being treated by my Gynecologist?
Liftique Board Certified Urogynecologists specialize in the creation of customized treatment regimes based on patient complaints and the impact on their quality of life. This is all we do. We are not distracted by delivering babies or other gynecological care.
Your treatment regime will include a preliminary treatment plan as well as a long-term program in which there will be constant ongoing interaction with Liftique Blush personnel.
Liftique Blush services are NOT a replacement for your current gynecologist or primary care physician.
Are Liftique Blush Medical Services covered by insurance?
Not at this time. Liftique is a private pay medical practice. We will give you the necessary claim forms to file directly with your insurance carrier.
What is the Pelvic Floor and What are Pelvic Floor Disorders?
The pelvic floor is a hammock-like structure that keeps the uterus, bladder, rectum, and vagina where they need to be for proper functioning. The components of the pelvic floor – the muscles, ligaments, connective tissues, and nerves – all need to be strong and healthy to support these pelvic organs. But pregnancy, childbirth, menopause, certain cancer treatments, medical conditions, and even normal aging can stretch and weaken the pelvic floor, leading to a range of physical problems such as:
Bladder Dysfunction, including stress incontinence, overactive bladder, voiding dysfunctions, and chronic urinary tract infections (UTIs)
Pelvic Organ Prolapse, a common condition where the bladder, uterus, rectum, and/or vagina itself fall out of place, moving downward toward or into the vaginal opening
Female Sexual Dysfunction, including painful intercourse, low libido, or problems with orgasm due to dryness, vaginal laxity, or other unwanted physical changes caused by estrogen deficiency.
How do I know if I am a candidate for Liftique Blush?
If you suffer from one or more pelvic floor disorders and want to avoid estrogen therapy, long-term medication, or surgery, Liftique Blush may be the answer. Patients who benefit from Liftique Blush usually meet one or more of the following criteria:
Discomfort due to prolapse of pelvic organs
Bladder function problems, including leakage from stress or urge incontinence, urinary frequency, or nocturia (waking at night to urinate)
Vaginal laxity issues, including reduced sensation during intercourse
Painful or uncomfortable intercourse due to vaginal dryness or inflamed tissues
Embarrassment or discomfort from changes in labia or vaginal tissue
How does Liftique Blush work?
Liftique Blush is a non-surgical, hormone-free treatment that stimulates the body’s own repair process for improved functioning and appearance, both internally and externally. Liftique Blush uses new technologies to shrink and tighten vaginal and vulvar skin, while also stimulating collagen renewal for thicker, healthier tissue and increased moisture and lubrication.
Does the Liftique Blush procedure hurt?
Liftique Blush is gentle, painless, and safe. It is performed in an office setting, and requires no anesthesia. You will be completely comfortable during treatment, and there is minimal to no downtime.
How long does it take?
Liftique Blush requires just three treatments, six weeks apart. Each takes less than five minutes, and there is no post-procedure downtime. According to studies, no further treatment is needed for at least a year.
What type of results can I expect?
The results of Liftique Blush can be life-changing. Treatment of the internal vaginal walls can improve vaginal muscle function, increasing sexual pleasure for both patient and partner. Liftique Blush can heighten vaginal sensitivity, resulting in easier, more frequent, or even multiple orgasms. Additional benefits include an increase in vaginal moisture and lubrication, eliminating the need for added lubrication during intercourse.
What does estrogen have to do with Vaginal Dryness?
Many sexual and pelvic organ issues begin with falling estrogen levels. Vaginal skin is multilayered, and estrogen is required for cell proliferation at every level. When estrogen drops due to menopause, certain cancer treatments, or other conditions, vaginal tissue can become thinner, dryer, and even inflamed. This can result in vaginal and vulvar atrophy, a condition marked by painful intercourse, or what medical experts call dyspareunia (dis-puh-roo-nee-uh).
What are the conventional options to treat Vaginal Dryness?
Treatment options for painful intercourse (dyspareunia) have long been limited to topical lubricants or localized estrogen. But women with estrogen-positive cancer must avoid supplementing with estrogen, and topical lubricants don’t really offer a long-term solution. Two new medications, Osphena and Intrarosa, are now available for the treatment of dyspareunia. But these need to be used long-term for consistent results, and some women have trouble inserting the medication or tolerating the side effects. Another option for many pelvic floor disorders is surgery. But again, many women would prefer an alternative approach.
