HerKare Southlake, Frisco, and The Woodlands offers FemTouch vaginal laser therapy. FemTouch is a laser treatment performed during a short office visit with minimal post-procedure care. Typically, no anesthesia is required.
FemTouch vaginal laser therapy is a minimally invasive, non-hormonal treatment that is used to help improve some vaginal related symptoms that women may experience.
With age and after childbirth, women start noticing symptoms related to their vaginal health that affect their lifestyle on different levels. Vaginal atrophy or dryness is a common symptom in postmenopausal women. Stress urinary incontinence is another symptom, as well as vaginal laxity after childbirth, which can impact satisfaction with sexual intercourse.
FemTouch addresses vaginal health related conditions by using a fractionated CO2 laser along the vaginal wall to promote the stimulation of new vaginal tissue through collagen production.
Before treatment, your medical provider will assess your overall vaginal health to ensure that you are a good candidate for the treatment. During the procedure, your provider will move the sterilized applicator along the vaginal wall in an outward motion, applying the laser in a 360-degree pattern covering the entire area. The procedure typically takes less than 30 minutes. You may experience a minor heat sensation during the treatment, and generally there is minimal to no discomfort.
In clinical evaluations, women reported feeling improvement after just 1-2 treatment sessions but typically 2-4 treatments may be required to achieve a desired outcome.
Immediately after treatment you may feel a very mild heat sensation, in which case your treatment provider can prescribe a hydrating gel. This sensation should last no longer than a few hours.
Energy based treatments are not suitable for everyone and carry certain risks. Consult with your medical provider about the appropriateness of this therapy for you.
