WHAT IS FEMTOUCH?
FemTouch is a state-of-the-art, minimally invasive outpatient procedure developed by Lumenis, the leading company for aesthetic medical laser devices, in collaboration with leading gynecologists. FemTouch treatments can alleviate vaginal dryness, laxity, discomfort or pain during intercourse, as well as urinary incontinence issues.
WHO NEEDS FEMTOUCH?
Approximately 24 percent of women between the ages of 18 and 44 experience urinary incontinence. Nearly 50 percent of postmenopausal women suffer from stress urinary incontinence, or the unintentional loss of urine caused by physical movement such as coughing, sneezing, laughing, running, or heavy lifting.
FemTouch is suitable for nearly all women, including those:
• in peri-menopause, menopause, and post-menopause
• with symptoms caused by surgery, cancer medication, or those who are unable to use hormone-based treatment
• who haven’t responded to topical estrogen or find administration unpleasant
• with painful perineal scarring post-birth
• with recurrent yeast or bladder infections
• who experience pain, vaginal discomfort, or bleeding during intercourse
• with lost elasticity, mild prolapse, or light bladder leakage
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 energy levels in a fractional pattern to remodel the connective tissue and stimulate new collagen growth. FemTouch treats vaginal health conditions by promoting remodeling of the vaginal mucosa and revitalizing the tissue in a full 360-degrees. The laser treatments stimulate collagen and elastin to create new, healthy tissue and promote blood flow.
Women can ultimately gain restoration of the vaginal canal to a premenopausal-like stage with FemTouch treatments and can experience fewer adverse symptoms that are accompanied by vaginal atrophy and incontinence.
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. Our patient below was more than grateful to share her experience and results with FemTouch at La Jolla Cosmetic Gynecology.
FemTouch laser treatments are a safe and comfortable outpatient procedure that takes only minutes. It is a minimally invasive procedure that does not require anesthesia, and women can expect to return to normal activities immediately after treatment. Three sessions spaced four weeks apart are recommended by Dr. Mohyi for optimal outcomes. As aging continues, some women may require another single treatment every one to two years to maintain the beneficial results.
FemTouch can help improve the quality of life for many women who suffer from these common symptoms. If you are one of these women, call La Jolla Cosmetic Gynecology today to learn more and see if you are a good candidate for this treatment.
What is FemTouch?
FemTouch is a minimally invasive vaginal rejuvenation treatment that uses laser technology to gently restore collagen and elastin. The FemTouch vaginal rejuvenation procedure is ideal for treating vaginal dryness, laxity, pain or discomfort during intercourse, and symptoms of urinary incontinence.
Is FemTouch Covered by Insurance?
FemTouch is not currently covered by insurance providers. If you are concerned about the cost of your treatment, you may want to consider some of the financing options that are available.
How Much Does FemTouch Cost?
The cost of FemTouch will vary depending on the number of treatment sessions needed to achieve optimal results. Most women need about three treatments for best results, although some women may require more or less depending on their symptoms.
When Will I See Results from FemTouch?
After a FemTouch treatment, you can expect to start noticing results within weeks. As collagen and elastin is stimulated and additional treatment sessions are received, you will enjoy a gradual improvement in vaginal health concerns. These results may continue to improve for a few months after your final FemTouch treatment.
Are FemTouch Results Permanent?
FemTouch produces long-lasting results, but it cannot prevent changes from developing in the vagina in the future. As the natural aging process continues, patients may choose to receive additional treatments to maintain their results. Most patients are able to easily maintain their results with yearly treatments.
