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 is used for non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation. It uses fractional CO2 laser technology to treat a variety of vaginal conditions, including:

  1. Vaginal dryness: Femtouch can help to increase lubrication and moisture in the vaginal area, which can alleviate discomfort during sexual activity.
  2. Vaginal laxity: As women age, their vaginal tissues can become loose or saggy, leading to decreased sexual sensation and urinary incontinence. Femtouch can help to tighten and firm the vaginal tissues, improving both sexual function and bladder control.
  3. Vaginal itching or burning: Femtouch can help to relieve vaginal discomfort caused by inflammation or irritation, such as that associated with menopause or certain skin conditions.
  4. Vaginal infections: Femtouch can help to reduce the risk of bacterial or fungal infections in the vaginal area by restoring a healthy balance of vaginal flora.

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.
