Maintaining optimal sexual health is essential for a woman’s quality of life and self-confidence. Aging and childbirth can affect vaginal health in many uncomfortable or disheartening ways, but FemTouch™ by Lumenis® may alleviate these effects. FemTouch™ is a nonsurgical laser that addresses vaginal health concerns by stimulating the regeneration of the mucous epithelium layer and tightening compromised tissue. By choosing to undergo FemTouch™ treatment at our serene TriBeCa surgical suite, patients can expect improved lubrication, a reduction in physical discomfort, decreased urinary incontinence, enhanced vaginal elasticity, and heightened sexual satisfaction.
Women who are considering FemTouch™ treatment must be healthy and have realistic expectations of the procedure. Ideal candidates can relate to any of the following feminine concerns:
- Vaginal pain, itching, or dryness
- Vaginal laxity
- Urinary incontinence
- Discomfort during intercourse
- Decreased libido
Treatment with FemTouch™ is performed in our office, only takes a few minutes to complete, and does not require the use of anesthesia or special aftercare. We place the cylindrical device into the vagina and rotates the applicator so that the laser can treat the entire lining of the vaginal wall. Patients may feel a slight warming sensation, but it should not be painful.
Because there is no downtime required after FemTouch™ treatment, patients can resume their daily routine immediately. However, it is recommended to avoid strenuous activity for at least five days and abstain from sexual intercourse for three days.
Most patients achieve the best results after two to four sessions with FemTouch™. Results will continue to improve within six months of the procedure as new collagen forms in the target area. FemTouch™ does not halt the natural aging process, so additional treatment may be required once every year or two to maintain the effects.
FemTouch™ is not recommended for patients who are prone to developing keloids or have taken Isotretinoin six to 12 months before treatment. Some of the risks involved with this procedure are:
- Changes in texture
