FemTouch Vaginal Rejuvenation

Vaginal laser resurfacing or rejuvenation is the newest cutting edge treatment for vaginal health, especially for those suffering from post-menopausal vaginal dryness.

The highly effective CO2 laser from FemTouch made by Lumenis  is considered the gold standard laser for vaginal rejuvenation.

With FemTouch™ , women no longer have to live with painful and embarrassing situations such as painful sex or leakage.  Start your treatment today and get your sex life back again!

As women age, they will experience changes in their vaginal area which are largely due to decreasing levels of the estrogen hormone.

FemTouch Fractional CO2 laser is an FDA approved treatment that is being used for various conditions related to aging and childbirth as an off label use.

Various conditions that can be treated with FemTouch CO2 fractional laser include

  • Vaginal atrophy after menopause or cancer treatments
  • Vaginal dryness or itching
  • Painful  sexual intercourse

Using Co2 laser vaginal treatment has also shown improvement in certain conditions such as:

  • Vaginal laxity or looseness
  • Urinary incontinence specially related to exercise and physical activities
  • Inelasticity of the vagina
  • Frequent Urinary tract Infection

Usage of Femtouch laser for some of these conditions  is considered an off label use, however, significant number of patients who were treated for these conditions as an off label use have reported substantial improvement in their condition such as urinary incontinence, vaginal pain and frequent urinary tract infection.

How Does FemTouch Co2 laser Work?

An innovative CO2 laser, FemTouch treatment laser is applied along the vaginal walls to deliver very gentle, controlled ablation and coagulation of the vaginal lining for improved vaginal tightness and health.

The brilliant science of the FemTouch CO2 laser treatment is actually based on the human body’s amazing ability to heal itself.

Imaging when you get an small cut on your finger or have your blood drawn with a small needle. Immediately after this minor trauma to the skin and tissues underneath, your body quickly begins the process of repairing this  damage. Part of this repair is the production of a fresh and very important tissue called Collagen, which is a form of strong, elastic supportive connective tissue which provides both strength and flexibility to the tissues it connects.  At the same time, the skin cells around the cut area or needle puncture hole begin to produce completely new skin to cover and heal the injury. Around these changes, there are new blood vessels form that bring vascularity and increase blood circulation to tissue and its surroundings.

The way all the laser cosmetic skin resurfacing and vaginal rejuvenation lasers work is by making thousands of very small and deep holes on the skin or vaginal surface. These tiny holes promote a strong body response to rebuild new and strong collagen underneath the tiny holes while at the same time, new skin or vaginal tissue begins to grow on the surface. Collagen is produced naturally and quickly in our youth but as we age, its production drops significantly which is why a laser is used to create new and tiny punctures or holes- to cause the production of new collagen.

Vaginal Atrophy and Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation

As women age, they will experience changes in their vagina and vaginal area that are largely due to decreasing levels of the estrogen hormone. This results in the thinning of the vaginal wall and is often accompanied by dryness mostly during sex.

This condition is commonly  treated with the application of either vaginal estrogen creams or the taking of daily estrogen pills.

Unfortunately, as women reach the  age of menopause, Estrogen supplementation either through creams or pills, correlates highly with increased risks of stroke and heart attack among other conditions. In fact, women with a history of breast cancer can not take any Estrogen hormone replacement therapy.

FemTouch Co2 Vaginal Laser treatment is an alternative, safe and non-hormonal treatment to treat and improve vaginal health, especially for menopausal women who cannot or choose not to undergo hormone replacement therapy. The FemTouch laser helps to rebuild vaginal tissue without the risks of Estrogen hormone exposure.

Frequent urinary tract infection and Laser vaginal Rejuvenation

Inside a healthy Vagina, there are thousands of necessary bacteria called Lactobacillus, which help create and maintain an acidic vaginal environment and prevent the growth of other ‘bad’ bacteria which often cause urinary tract infections (UTI).  As women age, they experience changes in their vaginal area which are largely due to a lack of sufficient Estrogen. This leads to vaginal dryness and loss of the good Lactobacillus bacteria. As the number of lactobacillus bacteria decrease, the vaginal environment becomes less acidic, allowing bad bacteria which cause urinary tract infections to grow and multiply.  This is why as women age, they are more susceptible to getting frequent urinary tract infections(UTI).

The FemTouch Co2 vaginal resurfacing laser helps the body regenerate new, healthy vaginal surface which in turn allow the Lactobacillus bacteria to regrow. This regrowth of the good bacteria prevents the growth of UTI-causing bacteria.

FemTouch™ Co2 laser is an out-patient, minimally invasive, non-surgical, non-hormonal treatment for optimal  vaginal health. It consists of three painless, quick treatments, scheduled about six weeks apart.  With FemTouch™ you no longer have to live with painful vaginal dryness which leads to frequent urinary tract infections.  Start your treatment today and say NO to frequent UTI!

Stress Urinary Incontinence and Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation

While the FemTouch Co2 vaginal resurfacing laser is not specifically FDA-approved for the treatment of urinary incontinence, patients who have been treated with this laser procedure for other conditions such as post menopausal vaginal dryness often report a marked  improvement in their stress urinary incontinence.

There are several forms of urinary incontinence with the two most common diagnosed being stress incontinence and urgency incontinence.

Stress urinary incontinence is described as urine loss experienced during some type of physical activity such as playing sports, physical exercise such as yoga, coughing, laughing and even during intercourse.

This condition is caused by weakness in the muscles of the pelvic floor. Risks factors for developing stress urinary incontinence in women are multiple pregnancies and child births, natural delivery of large babies, and first pregnancy and delivery at very young maternal age.

The treatment of stress urinary incontinence include Kegel exercises, pelvic floor rehabilitation and biofeedback and in more severe cases surgery.

The FemTouch Co2 laser can tighten the muscles in the pelvis and provide additional support which in turn may reduce the amount of stress urinary incontinence. This laser treatment can also complement and enhance the effectiveness of other treatments for stress urinary incontinence.

Studies are ongoing to identify those who would best benefit from this novel treatment option.
