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.
Why does MDSkin offer Femtouch?
At MDSkin Lounge, we believe that every woman should feel confident and beautiful, no matter her age. That is why we offer Femtouch, a minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure to improve vaginal health.
Pregnancy and menopause can cause many changes in a woman’s body, including her feminine areas. Issues such as vaginal dryness, irritation, and stress urinary incontinence are common issues that plague women as they age.
We also understand that currently, there is no equality when it comes to men’s and women’s sexual health. While society is comfortable speaking about male issues such as erectile dysfunction, it is not the same for women. We believe that women’s sexual issues should be addressed just as openly as men’s and offer an open line of communication at our office.
By offering treatment options such as Femtouch, we can help women feel more confident.
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 do I know if FemTouch can help me?
FemTouch is an easy and quick procedure that only takes 3 to 5 minutes. It is nonsurgical, painless, and does not require any anesthesia or numbing cream. This laser resurfacing treatment is designed for women between the ages of 20 to 60 who are experiencing changes to their vagina due to hormonal reasons. Your vaginal health can be improved with FemTouch offering you relief from vaginal conditions like dryness, laxity, itching, and urinary incontinence. An in-office exam can help to determine if FemTouch can be beneficial to you. We will also take into account your individual aesthetic and feminine health goals to create a personalized treatment plan for you.
How long does a FemTouch treatment take?
One FemTouch treatment takes between 2-5 minutes to complete. This makes it a very quick and easy procedure, making it a great option for those with busy schedules. Typically, patients need 2-4 treatments to see optimal results.
Is there downtime?
After their FemTouch treatment, patients can return to their everyday activities right away. However, it is recommended that you wait to resume sexual activity until 72 hours post-treatment.
Is the FemTouch treatment painful?
Most women who have undergone the FemTouch treatment say it feels like a tampon being inserted. You may feel a heating sensation or slight vibration from the internal probe but there is no discomfort or pain. The feeling is usually described as a slight pressure which is similar to what you would experience during a vaginal examination. No numbing cream or anesthesia is required for your treatment. However, some women may experience vaginal itching after the procedure which resolves on its own. You can use a hydrating gel for relief from the itching sensation.
Is there any post-treatment care needed?
After treatment, patients are encouraged to sooth the vaginal lining with a hydrating gel for up to one week.
Can I have a FemTouch treatment while breastfeeding?
FemTouch addresses vaginal health-related conditions in women of all ages. The treatment only takes about 10 minutes to perform and you may require 2 to 4 treatments to achieve the desired results. You can return to your normal routine immediately after your treatment and it does not require any anesthesia or numbing. There are no major side effects of the treatment, but some women may feel some itchiness in the hours after the treatment. However, this can be relieved with a hydrating gel. The FemTouch treatment can be available for women who are breastfeeding.
What does the treatment regimen look like?
FemTouch is an innovative CO2 vaginal laser technology which promotes the stimulation of new vaginal tissue and addresses vaginal health-related concerns. During your procedure, a sterilized applicator is moved along your vaginal walls in an outward motion. It is a painless vaginal treatment that does not require numbing or the use of anesthesia and most women report feeling a slight heat or vibration. It is an effective and fast treatment lasting only a few minutes and you will experience a change with the first session itself. However, for achieving optimal results, you will need 2 to 4 sessions spaced about 4 to 6 weeks apart. Some women may feel itchiness for a while which can be soothed with a hydrating gel; other than this, FemTouch is a gentle and comfortable procedure with no side effects.
Are there side effects with FemTouch?
There are no major side effects that have been associated with FemTouch treatment. In some cases, patients might experience some itching in the hours following their treatment. This can be relieved with a prescribed hydrating gel. FemTouch is a safe and quick procedure that is almost painless and has no downtime. Laser energy is applied to your vaginal tissue to restore normal functioning. It is especially beneficial for women who are experiencing vaginal atrophy, painful intercourse, or urinary incontinence among other vaginal issues. After your FemTouch treatment you can return to your normal activities immediately. However, it is recommended that you avoid any strenuous activities or intercourse for a number of days after your treatment.
How quickly will I experience improvement?
Your provider might recommend 2 to 4 treatments so that you can achieve your desired results from the FemTouch treatment. These treatments will be spaced at an interval of 4 to 6 weeks. Some women experience improvement immediately after their treatment and this is mostly true in reducing urinary incontinence. The laser energy from the FemTouch applicator promotes the growth of new fibers and tissue but these vaginal mucosa changes take time. The production of new fiber and formation of new vessels is a gradual process and you will see your final results in 3 to 6 months from the treatment. Improvements in vaginal concerns and health like urinary incontinence and pain and dryness show a change immediately which only continues to get better with time.
