In the past, women who experienced many of the most common vaginal health symptoms had few treatment options. Vaginal rejuvenation surgery could be of assistance, but some women may not be able (or simply prefer not) to undergo a surgical procedure. Femtouch™ Non-Surgical Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation can serve as an ideal solution for women who experience these symptoms but may not be good candidates for vaginal rejuvenation surgery. Since it is still a relatively new procedure, many women do not know about the benefits laser vaginal rejuvenation can provide. In the spirit of patient education, our board-certified gynecologists wanted to highlight and debunk a few of the more common myths about laser vaginal rejuvenation treatments.
Myth #1: Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation is only for older women
This is false. Vaginal health symptoms like vaginal laxity or vaginal dryness can be caused by several different factors that may occur at a younger age in some women. As long as you have no specific health concerns that would keep you from safely undergoing this treatment, adult women of all ages can be great candidates for FemTouch™ Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation.
Myth #2: Female procedures like Endometrial Ablation or a Hysterectomy can prevent women from undergoing Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation
Although every woman is different, and circumstances may vary, there is little reason that undergoing other gynecological procedures like the ones mentioned above would prevent you from getting laser vaginal rejuvenation. However, to confirm that you are a good candidate for laser vaginal rejuvenation treatment, it’s important to consult with your board-certified gynecologist before making any decisions.
Myth #3: Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation treatments can be very painful
One of the most appealing aspects of FemTouch™ treatments for many women is that the treatments are performed quickly and are virtually pain-free. In some cases, there may be a mild, temporary heat sensation immediately following your treatment, but we can prescribe a soothing hydrating gel if this occurs.
We hope you found this information helpful and informative. If you are experiencing vaginal dryness, vaginal itching, pain during sex, or stress urinary incontinence and think you might be a good candidate for FemTouch™ Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation, the first step is meeting with your board-certified gynecologist.
