With age and after childbirth, women start noticing symptoms related to their vaginal health that affect their lifestyle including vaginal atrophy or dryness. Stress urinary incontinence is another symptom, as well as vaginal laxity after childbirth, which can impact satisfaction with sexual intercourse.
FemTouch™ is a non-hormonal, laser-based procedure that stimulates new collagen production to treat these symptoms. Performed in the office, FemTouch™ doesn’t require anesthesia, has minimal post-procedure care and each treatment takes only a few minutes.
How does it work?
FemTouch™ addresses vaginal health related conditions by promoting the remodeling of the vaginal mucous layer.
The procedure should take a few minutes. You may experience a minor heat sensation during the treatment, but it is very gentle and you should not feel uncomfortable. During the treatment, your physician will move the sterilized applicator along the vaginal wall in an outward motion, applying the laser in a 360° pattern covering the entire area. Fractional laser beams are applied along the vaginal wall and promote the remodeling of the vaginal layer.
When will I see results?
Typically, 3 treatments are needed to see optimal results, but in clinical evaluations, women reported feeling improvement after 2 treatment sessions.
What can I expect after treatment?
Immediately after treatment you may feel a very mild heat sensation, in which case your physician will recommend a hydrating gel. This sensation should not last longer than a few hours.
Energy-based treatments are not suitable for everyone and carry some risks. Be sure to consult with your treatment provider before choosing this procedure.
