Many people think of cosmetic laser treatments as being predominantly for the face and other highly-visible areas of the body. Fortunately, there are cosmetic treatments that can address issues in those areas that we like to keep private. Vaginal Health is of utmost importance to women and has physical and mental repercussions in their daily lives. One of the most popular treatments to address vaginal health concerns is known as FemTouch.
What is FemTouch?
FemTouch is a laser cosmetic treatment that focuses on the vagina. In addition to rejuvenating the area, making the vaginal walls stronger, tighter and more akin to how it was before childbirth, it also boosts the health of this intimate part of the female anatomy.
FemTouch works by using laser technology to stimulate the growth of new vaginal tissue. It does this by triggering the production of collagen, the main structural protein found in skin and other connective tissues. Childbirth, aging, and certain medical conditions can all affect collagen levels in the skin, causing them to deteriorate. As a result, the area loses elasticity and becomes thinner and looser. However, by stimulating new collagen growth, FemTouch can thicken and rejuvenate the skin and tissues inside the vagina, making them smoother, tighter, thicker and stronger.
Benefits of FemTouch
As a result of the collagen boost provided when patients undergo FemTouch, they can benefit from:
- Stronger vaginal walls with increased elasticity
- Enhanced natural lubrication thanks to also rejuvenating the vaginal mucosa
- Enhanced sexual pleasure
- Improved sexual confidence
- Decreased urinary incontinence
- Easier use of tampons
What happens during a FemTouch procedure?
The FemTouch procedure is a completely non-surgical process that can be carried out in under six minutes. There is no need for any anesthesia, and you will not feel any discomfort while the FemTouch procedure is taking place.
During FemTouch, a lubricated and sterilized applicator, that is similar to those used in internal ultrasound scans, will be placed inside your vagina and moved along the vaginal wall slowly in an outward motion. The laser emits from this applicator in a 360° wave so that the entire inside of the vagina is treated. You may feel a warm sensation, but you should not feel any pain.
Once your treatment is complete, you will be able to re-dress and go back to work or your usual activities straight away. Many women find that the use of lubricant means that they may want to freshen up shortly after their treatment. You will be advised that you should not have sex or use tampons for a minimum of 72 hours after your treatment.
How many FemTouch sessions will I need?
Many women start to notice the results of their FemTouch procedure fairly quickly, sometimes even after just one session. However, typically between two and four treatments are needed to reach the optimal improvement in the quality and health of the vaginal lining.
