What is FemTouch™ Laser Treatment?
FemTouch™ is a minimally invasive, non-surgical, non-hormonal, outpatient rejuvenation procedure for women looking to improve their vaginal health. Using CO2 laser technology, this treatment is focused along the vaginal wall and delivers controlled ablation (vaporization) and coagulation (regeneration) to the layer of collagen responsible for elasticity of the vaginal muscles.
Why You Might Need FemTouch™ Laser Treatment
While the FemTouch™ technology is suitable for most premenopausal, menopausal, and postmenopausal woman aged 20 and up, many patients seek treatment when they notice symptoms related to their vaginal health after childbirth or during menopause.
For women with mild urinary incontinence, the FemTouch™ procedure can provide relief. Urinary incontinence, or loss of bladder control, occurs twice as often in women as in men, and is caused when muscles become weak. With laser technology, the vaginal muscles surrounding the bladder are tightened and rejuvenated, which in turn, helps prevent leakage.
Those looking to improve sexual pleasure and eliminate burning and pain, can also look to this laser treatment to eradicate dryness while increasing sensation.
How FemTouch™ Laser Treatment Works
FemTouch™ uses third-generation fractional CO2 laser technology to vaporize, then reproduce elastin in the vaginal lining. A licensed physician will insert the sterilized applicator, applying pulsed thermal heat in a 360˚ pattern to shrink collagen so that regeneration can occur. The procedure takes just minutes, and yields better results with two to four treatments.
Benefits of FemTouch™ Laser Treatment
As women get older, they tend to experience changes in their vagina and urinary system, due to decreasing levels of estrogen. Loss of estrogen can lead to irritation, itching, dryness, and painful intercourse. This minimally invasive procedure can improve vaginal health and help women feel more confident in their everyday lives.
