Femtouch

Femtouch™

Femtouch™ is a treatment for vaginal health and it can help stimulate new collagen production. It is a fractionated CO2 laser treatment, which is innovative and has been developed by Lumenis. Femtouch™ is often chosen by women because it is a non-surgical and non-invasive treatment. This means that there is normally minimal downtime or side effects from the procedure.

A lot of women experience changes with the vaginal health after childbirth and menopause. These changes are not always what are desired and this is where Femtouch™ treatment from epiclinic® can help. Femtouch™ can help with the growth of healthy tissue and improve the elasticity in the vagina, as well as combat dryness, discomfort during intercourse and urinary inconvenience.

Conditions Femtouch™ Can Help:

Femtouch™ can be used to improve a variety of conditions. This includes helping vaginal dryness. This treatment can help to increase vaginal lubrication, which can relieve itching and pain during intercourse. Femtouch™ treatment for women provides an alternative to those women prefer not to use hormonal supplements during peri-menopause. Vaginal atrophy, vaginal dryness and uncomfortable intercourse can be a feature of post menopause, which can cause the reduction of the normal joys of intimacy.

Femtouch™ can also be helpful for women who are experiencing vaginal laxity. This can happen after childbirth, as well as through aging. Femtouch™ reduces vaginal laxity by transforming lax fibres into new collagen that has both resilience and responsiveness within the vaginal wall.

Women who experience stress urinary incontinence may also be able to benefit from Femtouch™. This is a condition that is normally age-related, but it can also happen to young women after they have given birth. Femtouch™ can be used to increase new healthy tissue that can help return natural bladder control, improving confidence and reducing anxiety and the fear of embarrassment.

The Femtouch™ Procedure

The Femtouch™ procedure is quick and simple. The sterilised applicator is inserted into the vagina and gentled moved along the vaginal wall. This treatment with Femtouch™ only takes around 10 to 15 minutes in total. The applicator will be moved in an outward and 360-degree motion.

Pain is not experienced or associated with the treatment in the vast majority of patients. Patients have reported negligible discomfort with the procedure and only feeling a slight heat or vibration sensation during the treatment. Because of this, no anaesthetic is needed for Femtouch™.

While every patient will be different, it is sometimes necessary to have a series of 4-6 Femtouch™ treatment sessions. Our professionals will help you decide on how many treatments, spaced 6 weeks apart, you may require for you.

After the Procedure

There is minimal downtime associated with Femtouch™. This means that there is normally no required time off work or away from your normal routine unless you want to do this. Strenuous activity should be avoided for one week, as well as temporary coital abstinence during this time. There are some after effects that are common with Femtouch™. This includes an itch after the procedure. The best way to combat this is to avoid hot baths for around 72 hours after Femtouch™. In addition, some swelling and minor inflammation are not uncommon after the procedure. This normally subsides within 72 hours of having the treatment.
