No doubt, you are feeling a little rough around the edges after being shut-in for so long. Let’s talk about the ways you can shower ourselves with love when lockdown ends. You deserve this!
Many post-menopausal women suffer from vaginal atrophy, which is classified as the thinning, drying, and inflammation of the vaginal walls. Symptoms include vaginal dryness, irritation, itching, burning during urination, and increased pain during intercourse. Simultaneously, the bladder’ structure weakens, raising urinary leakage incidences for many post-menopausal women.
Women experiencing these uncomfortable symptoms may see improvement with the FemTouch™ carbon dioxide (CO2) laser, which remodels the lining of the vaginal mucous layer by regenerating new lining with healthier tissue and stronger support. This remodeling and regeneration have been shown to eliminate or improve many of the symptoms of vulvovaginal atrophy and may improve urinary leakage.
Studies have shown CO2 lasers like FemTouch™ are probably more effective and longer lasting than radiofrequency tightening.
The FemTouch™ by Lumenis laser applicator is inserted into the vagina and rotated 360 degrees along the entire length of the vagina. Many patients will see some level of improvement after just one or two treatments.
In addition, the revolutionary FemTouch™ laser can also be used to tighten the vaginal opening, reduce the size of the labia majora (outer lips), and possibly decrease dark pigmentation of the labia minora (inner lips) and labia majora.
After a FemTouch™ treatment, it’s common to experience a mild-heat sensation lasting a few hours. An approved hydrating gel can help reduce this sensation. No intercourse is allowed for 72 hours post-procedure.
We recommend 2-4 painless treatments lasting about 10 minutes per session, with 4-6 weeks between treatments for optimal results.
