WHO NEEDS FEMTOUCH?
50 million women in the US have reached menopause and will spend at least 1/3 of their lives beyond menopause. Postmenopausal women can often develop vaginal atrophy due to decreased estrogen levels. The walls of the vagina thin out and vaginal tissue becomes ridged and prone to tears and rips leaving women predisposed to vaginal infections, painful sex and other complications including:
- Urinary function problems (stress incontinence)
- Uncomfortable or painful sexual intercourse
- Tissue tearing or rupture
- Loss of sexual pleasure
Additionally there is a decrease in blood flow to the tissue further causing thinning, dryness and a decrease in natural lubrication.
WHAT CAN WE DO ABOUT IT?
For the first time in human history doctors have an additional method other than surgery that can safely treat vaginal atrophy. FemTouch is a minimally invasive, nonsurgical, no downtime procedure that treats postmenopausal vaginal atrophy and all of the unpleasant side effects, safely and effectively.
HOW DOES FEMTOUCH WORK?
FemTouch utilizes CO2 laser technology to target the epithelium and lamina propria layers of the vaginal tissue to restore these areas with a simple and painless laser application. FemTouch delivers low CO2 energy levels in a fractional patter to remodel the connective tissue and stimulate new collagen growth.
WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?
The measurable results include a restoration of the vaginal epithelium thickness and fibroblasts synthesized into new collagen. Patients have experienced a reversal of their bothersome symptoms including painful intercourse, tissue tearing and loss of sexual pleasure. Patients often share their personal lives are dramatically changed as they are again able to enjoy intimate relations and experience an enrichment in their relationships.
