What is FemTouch?
The FemTouch laser procedure is a minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure that uses CO2 laser treatment to improve vaginal health. FemTouch treatment can improve many common vaginal issues such as dryness, irritation, stress urinary incontinence, and burning sensation.
Who can Benefit from FemTouch?
Women looking to improve their vaginal health can benefit from FemTouch laser treatment. Candidates might range from as young as 20, to as old as 80. Many women who have experienced childbirth or menopause have greatly benefited from FemTouch to improve vaginal health and the quality of their life. After menopause, women may begin to experience thinning vaginal walls, reduced vaginal secretion, and reduced estrogen levels. This can all lead to dryness, itching and painful intercourse which could all be minimized with a FemTouch treatment. It can also address stress urinary incontinence (SUI), a common problem that can cause a leakage of urine during everyday activities.
How does FemTouch Work?
FemTouch uses CO2 laser technology to promote the growth of new vaginal tissue and new collagen production. During treatment, an applicator will be inserted and moved along the vaginal walls in a 360-degree pattern to ensure the entire area is covered. The process is comfortable and painless and does not require any numbing or anesthesia. Treatment sessions only take a few minutes and can be repeated for optimal results, however, women can notice results after just one or two sessions.
What can be Expected After FemTouch?
Because it is non-surgical, there is no recovery required with a FemTouch treatment. Patients can return to their normal daily activities; however, it is recommended to wait 72 hours after treatment to engage in sexual activity. There are no major side effects to receiving FemTouch treatment but some patients may experience itching in the hours after. Your doctor may give you a vaginal hydrating gel to sooth the vaginal lining for a week after treatment.
While some patients report noticeable results immediately after treatment, changes in the vaginal mucosa can take three to six months to produce results. During that time, new fibers are being produced and vessels are formed. Once the process is complete, you can notice the results of your treatment with decreased dryness and irritation and an overall improvement in vaginal health.

How long does a FemTouch treatment take?

Is the FemTouch treatment painful?
