One of the major barriers for women’s vaginal health has always been the invasiveness and discomfort involved in traditional treatments. Physicians and gynecologists are determined to remove those barriers, with the help of FemTouch by Lumenis®.
FemTouch is the result of half a century of innovation in laser technology. The technology is easy to use and provides your physician with a pain free treatment option to help improve your vaginal health. There are a number of vaginal health conditions which can be treated with FemTouch, without the use of hormones or invasive procedures.
What Is FemTouch?
This revolutionary laser treatment stimulates collagen production in women of all ages. FemTouch is a treatment which is non-hormonal. The treatment is carried out as an outpatient procedure, so you won’t have to spend time in the hospital.
FemTouch is a laser vaginal treatment, which promotes the production of healthier tissue. This procedure has shown improved vaginal health in clinical trials, after only 1-2 treatments. For most patients, 2-4 appointments are enough to produce dramatically beneficial results.
Due to the minimally invasive nature of FemTouch, most patients experience nothing more than a mild heat sensation after the procedure. There is no need for anesthetic or any type of special care after the procedure. With no downtime for recovery, you can live your life as normal during and after treatment.
Who Should Consider FemTouch?
FemTouch is designed for women who are experiencing vaginal atrophy symptoms or incontinence. FemTouch may bring improvement or relief for women experiencing these symptoms:
- Dryness or burning of the vagina
- Pain or lack of sensation during intercourse
- Loss of tissue tone in the vagina
- UTI’s or bladder infections
- Incontinence or urinary leakage
These symptoms are common in women in the pre-menopausal and peri-menopausal stages, and even more so for post-menopausal women. These issues can also occur in women following childbirth in some cases.
How Does It Work?
FemTouch uses precision Co2 laser technology to directly target desired areas of the vaginal lining. By targeting these areas collagen production is improved. The result of controlled collagen production is the stimulation of healthy tissue growth.
A physician will need to assess you prior to treatment, just to ensure that FemTouch is right for you. Once you are cleared for treatment, each session takes no more than a few minutes. A sterilized applicator is used in the procedure to focus the laser on the vaginal wall. Using a 360o pattern, the physician will apply treatment to the entire area of focus.
You will not feel any discomfort during treatment, as the procedure only produces a mild feeling of heat in the vaginal area. Once treatment is complete the mild feeling of heat usually disappears in four hours or less.
FemTouch can be used to treat common vaginal health issues, post-natal vaginal restoration, and restoration of tissue in postmenopausal patients. Your physician may also use FemTouch in conjunction with other treatments, in order to optimize the benefits of combined treatments.
What to Expect?
Patients can expect to experience better vaginal health after FemTouch treatment. There is no post treatment downtime associated with the procedure, so you won’t have to take additional time off work. Although 3-4 treatments are recommended, patients have reported improvements in vaginal health after 1-2 sessions.
Patients can expect a range of results from FemTouch, including:
- tightening of the vagina
- restoration of tissue to premenopausal-like conditions
- increased natural lubrication
- lessening of incontinence symptoms
- promotion of better vaginal health
- Results can vary, depending on a number of factors. Based on your assessment, your physician will be able to provide you with a more detailed prediction of beneficial treatment outcomes.
