Welcome to another edition of our ongoing “Ask the Gynecologists” series. This month, we have decided to focus our attention on one of the most in-demand gynecological services we offer: FemTouch™ Non-Surgical Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation. FemTouch™ is an amazing treatment designed to treat a woman’s most intimate concerns including vaginal laxity, vaginal dryness, stress urinary incontinence, and more. Despite its significant increase in popularity in recent years, there is still a lot about this fantastic service that many women may not know. With this in mind, our board-certified gynecologists we are happy to answer a few questions about FemTouch™ Non-Surgical Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation.
Q.) How does FemTouch™ Non-Surgical Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation differ from vaginal rejuvenation surgery?
A.) Non-surgical laser vaginal rejuvenation treatments and vaginal rejuvenation surgery are designed to treat the same vaginal health symptoms. The main difference between the surgical and non-surgical approach is how each procedure is performed. During vaginal rejuvenation surgery, the vagina is tightened using surgical tools. Laser vaginal rejuvenation treatments (like FemTouch™) use a laser to naturally stimulate and rebuild the vaginal wall. Surgical vaginal rejuvenation may not be right for some women due to a variety of reasons including their specific condition, time constraints, or a natural aversion to surgery.
Q.) Is there anything I can do at home to replicate the effects of FemTouch™ Non-Surgical Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation?
A.) Unfortunately, there are no home remedies for vaginal laxity, the other common vaginal health symptoms, or stress urinary incontinence. In some cases, Kegel exercises can provide modest vaginal tightening. However, they can only do so much. There are some medications that may be able to help women with vulvovaginal atrophy, including estrogen vaginal cream, Intrarosa®, and Osphena®, although they don’t work for everyone.
Q.) What Will My Recovery Be Like Following FemTouch™ Non-Surgical Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation?
A.) One of the things women love so much about FemTouch™ Non-Surgical Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation is that they can achieve excellent vaginal rejuvenation and tightening results without any downtime needed for recovery. We perform FemTouch™ treatments in our office, so no hospital visits will be required. Generally, women can resume their normal daily activities after their treatment session is complete.
FemTouch™ Non-Surgical Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation can provide outstanding, life-changing vaginal rejuvenation results for women of all ages. However, it’s important to consult with a board-certified gynecologist first to make sure that FemTouch™ is the most appropriate treatment option for your reproductive healthcare needs.
