FemTouch Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation
As women age,
they may begin to experience symptoms related to their vaginal health which can negatively impact their confidence, quality of life and sexual pleasure. These symptoms are usually the result of decreased estrogen levels after menopause and may include vaginal dryness, itching, and pain and/or bleeding during sexual intercourse. These changes are referred to as vulvovaginal atrophy. Additionally, women may experience urinary symptoms such as burning and stress incontinence, or leakage with cough.
FemTouch Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation, available at Gynecology Associates of Gwinnett, PC in Lawrenceville, GA (north of Atlanta), is an effective way to treat vulvovaginal atrophy and improve vaginal health. FemTouch vaginal rejuvenation uses fractional CO2 laser technology by Lumenis to gently remove damaged tissue and restore the vaginal wall by promoting fibrin and collagen growth and increasing blood supply. FemTouch Vaginal Rejuvenation can improve overall vaginal health and its symptoms.
FemTouch vaginal rejuvenation treatments are safe, minimally invasive, fast and simple. Each session takes just several minutes and is performed in the office by board-certified gynecologist, Dr. Kristine Gould. During treatment, a sterilized device is inserted into the vagina. It is then moved along the vaginal canal in a 360 degree- pattern to ensure that the entire vaginal canal is treated. A warm sensation may be felt during the procedure. It is recommended to avoid sexual intercourse for one week after each treatment. Two to four treatment sessions may be required to obtain maximal results.
FemTouch vaginal rejuvenation treatments are perfect for women as young as 20. It’s important to consult with your board-certified gynecologist before treatment to understand all of your potential treatment options, based on your individual concerns and medical history. Additionally, FemTouch treatments are safe for women who have undergone a hysterectomy.
It is common for women to notice improvement after just 1-2 FemTouch vaginal rejuvenation treatment sessions. In order to see optimal results and achieve your aesthetic goals, we recommend between 2-4 sessions lasting a few minutes each.
There are no known side-effects associated with FemTouch vaginal rejuvenation treatments. Immediately following treatment, some patients may experience a very mild heat sensation. If this occurs, your Gynecology Associates of Gwinnett provider can prescribe a soothing hydrating gel. This sensation should not persist for more than a few hours.

Yes. Undergoing FemTouch treatments should be perfectly safe for women who have had an endometrial ablation to help treat excessive menstrual bleeding. Since these two procedures affect different areas of a woman’s reproductive system, having one should not interfere or deter a woman from the other.

Despite issues reported by some women about other laser vaginal rejuvenation treatments produced by certain manufacturers, FemTouch uses top-of-the-line laser technology by Lumenis. The treatment is considered very safe and effective for treating vaginal atrophy and its side effects.
