FemTouch™ Vaginal Laser Rejuvenation
Are you afraid to laugh or cough because it may cause you to urinate without control? Have you resigned yourself to abstention from sex because it hurts? You are not alone. Many women interested in vaginal rejuvenation visit our office in Roanoke, VA, for help with issues like these.
Women between the ages of 20 and 60 may experience vaginal dryness, laxity, itching, and urinary incontinence after childbirth and aging. Almost half of all post-menopausal women suffer from urinary stress incontinence, and nearly 8 out of 10 post-menopausal women have vaginal atrophy.
We offer the FDA-cleared FemTouch vaginal laser, which offers a non-surgical solution to both of these embarrassing situations. The FemTouch laser was developed by the Lumenis® corporation, a long-established industry leader in lasers, in conjunction with world-renowned gynecologists to help women with vaginal atrophy regain healthy, self-lubricating tissue. Additionally, the treatment has proved to be effective in restoring bladder control.
The FemTouch Procedure
This procedure is painless, takes about five minutes, and has no downtime. The process involves inserting a lubricated, sterile probe attached to a laser into the vaginal canal. The physician rotates and slowly withdraws the probe as the laser light is discharged onto the vaginal lining. The tiny spots where the laser hits (each smaller than a hair shaft) induce the lining to repair itself by thickening and restoring the lubrication glands.
Patients may experience mild itching or discharge for 72 hours and should abstain from sex or tampon use for that period. Three treatments, scheduled one month apart, are usually recommended.
Treatment of the external genitalia is also important to women who find that skin relaxation in that region is unsightly. The same laser, the AcuPulse™ fractionated CO2 laser, can be used with a different delivery probe to tighten the skin. A topical anesthetic cream is applied prior to the skin procedure. Treatment of the labia also takes only about five minutes.

Although these treatments yield excellent results, the aging process continues, and many women may need to return for an additional session every year or two to maintain their results.
