Vaginal Rejuvenation with Lumenis® FemTouch™
The intimate areas of a woman’s body are susceptible to changes due to the natural process of aging, bearing children, and other factors. But that doesn’t mean that discomfort and self-consciousness can’t be improved. While labiaplasty may be appropriate for some patients, non-surgical options are also available and can help. Our extensively trained plastic surgeon, Dr. Richard Zeff, offers minimally invasive Lumenis® FemTouch™ laser therapy to help women address a wide range of concerns affecting their feminine anatomy.
What Is Vaginal Rejuvenation?
Non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation addresses common concerns of a woman’s genitalia that can develop over time. Some of the issues that can occur include dryness, muscle laxity, urinary incontinence, physical discomfort during sexual activity, and other unwanted effects typically caused by a decrease in the hormone estrogen. Laser vaginal rejuvenation stimulates cell regeneration in the area, leading to firmer muscles, improved sensation, greater urinary control, and increased comfort.
How Does Vaginal Rejuvenation with the FemTouch™ Laser Work?
One of the many benefits of laser vaginal rejuvenation is the simple and typically quick procedure. Once the evaluation is complete and you are determined to be a good candidate, a hands-free wand is placed within the vaginal canal. This thin, smooth wand emits fractional CO2 laser energy, which heats the tissue and causes tissue contraction and regeneration, as well as collagen production. Fractional CO2 lasers are often utilized to rejuvenate the skin elsewhere on the face and body, and FemTouch uses this evidence-based approach to achieve similar youth-stimulating effects within the intimate anatomy.
What Is the FemTouch™ Vaginal Rejuvenation Procedure Like?
Your care is our highest priority, and we want you to feel at ease during your procedure. The non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation wand is placed into the vaginal canal gently, and then directed to deliver treatment in a 360-degree motion across the entire treatment area. This can be completed in a few minutes, and then the procedure is over. You may experience warmth or tingling during the treatment, although these sensations should pass quickly. The procedure is performed by a female RN.
Is There Recovery After Vaginal Rejuvenation with FemTouch™?
Most patients report little or no discomfort, and you can return to normal activity immediately after FemTouch treatment. Most women will benefit from having a series of procedures, typically between two and four, to optimize the results, but most patients report noticeable improvement after their first treatment. We can estimate during your initial consultation how many sessions can provide the ideal outcome for your needs and goals.
