From childbirth to menopause, women experience significant moments in their lives that also greatly impact their overall health and well-being. As hormonal levels change or fluctuate this can also play a role in vaginal health. It’s not uncommon for certain health conditions, hormonal changes and other factors to cause vaginal dryness, pain, and irritation.
As if the physical discomfort wasn’t enough, we also know that this can be difficult for a woman’s sexual health, as well. Vaginal dryness and irritation can also cause intercourse to be painful. As a result, you may find yourself dealing with a loss of sex drive. Here at the Skin Center, we understand that this is a serious and common problem that women face and that it’s not something that should go ignored. FemTouch provides a simple, painless and non-surgical solution for these issues.
In the past, CO2 lasers have been used for a variety of gynecological services, from fertility treatments to endometrial ablation. FemTouch also uses a CO2 laser for the purpose of vaginal rejuvenation. This painless procedure only takes a couple of minutes and most patients can get the results they need in just 2-4 sessions.
During the FemTouch procedure, an applicator is gently placed within the vaginal canal where the laser is then able to target the tissue from every angle. The laser treatment heats up the vaginal tissue to stimulate blood flow and the production of elastin and collagen within the walls of the vagina to improve elasticity and tightness.
The entire session will take about 15 minutes, there are no side effects and you’ll be able to return to your everyday activities immediately after; however, we will recommend that you avoid certain strenuous activities for about five days after your rejuvenation session.
Results of FemTouch vary from patient to patient and some women will see an improvement after just one session. In most cases, women will notice an improvement after their third session. Those with severe vaginal symptoms may require four or five FemTouch sessions each about a month apart from each other.
It’s important that you not only feel comfortable but also confident in your body. We know that the changes that occur as a result of aging can sometimes be physical and emotionally tough, but our team of board-certified dermatologists can provide you with the care you need to improve your wellbeing, quality of life, sexual health and everything in between.
