What is it?
With age and after childbirth, women start noticing symptoms related to their vaginal health that affect their lifestyle on different levels. Vaginal atrophy or dryness is a common symptom in postmenopausal women. Stress urinary incontinence is another symptom, as well as vaginal laxity after childbirth, which can impact satisfaction with sexual intercourse.
Nearly 50% of postmenopausal women suffer from stress urinary incontinence, and nearly 80% suffer from vaginal atrophy.
What should I expect?
When will I see results? Typically, 3 treatments are needed to see optimal results. and achieve the desired outcome on the vaginal layer. In clinical evaluations, women reported feeling improvement after 1-2 treatment sessions.
What can I expect after treatment? Immediately after treatment you may feel a very mild heat sensation, which can be relieved with the recommended hydrating gel. The sensation should not last longer than a few hours.
How does it work?
FemTouch Technology. FemTouch addresses vaginal health related conditions by promoting the remodeling of the vaginal mucous layer. The fractional CO2 laser beams are applied along the vaginal wall, resulting in regeneration of the tissue.
The Treatment. Before treatment, we assess your vaginal health to ensure you are a good candidate for the treatment. During the procedure, your physician will move the sterilized applicator along the vaginal wall in an outward motion, applying the laser in a 360 degree pattern covering the entire area. The procedure should take a few minutes.
There are different lasers available which have been designed or modified to treat vaginal issues. Based on Dr. Peterson's experience with surgical lasers as well as thorough research into other models such as the MonaLisa Touch by DEKA laser and Selene Touch by Focus laser, the FemTouch model by Lumenis is superior in quality, design, and functionality. Lumenis produces advanced surgical lasers used in U.S. hospitals, using the same technology in the FemTouch laser, whereas other manufacturers like MonaLisa Touch have simply added a new attachment to a laser originally intended for aesthetic use.
Here is what one of our patients shared about their experience:
"I was having problems with Vaginal dryness and light incontinence after having a total hysterectomy 10 years ago. Dr. Petersons office recommended the Femtouch Laser treatment. Jessica Gering was very knowledgeable, and compassionate. I felt very comfortable having her do the procedure. It was painless and quick. I have done all three treatments, and very pleased with my results!! The dryness is gone and i was able to run outside without worry. Jessica Gering was great! "
