Vaginal Rejuvenation Q & A
What is vaginal rejuvenation?
Vaginal rejuvenation refers to treatments aimed at relieving certain vaginal complications, such as:
- A decrease in elasticity and collagen
- Pain and discomfort during intercourse
- Vaginal appearance
Dr. Chin provides FemTouch® — an innovative and highly successful laser technology that restores vaginal health.
What is FemTouch?
FemTouch is a minimally invasive, non-hormonal, non-surgical treatment that can improve vaginal health and, for some women, vaginal appearance.
The treatment works especially well for women who’ve experienced a loss of estrogen — for example as a result of aging, a hysterectomy, or a cancer treatment.
FemTouch is a CO2 laser treatment that's applied to the vaginal walls and delivers gentle and controlled laser energy to stimulate your body's natural healing response and collagen and elastin production.
FemTouch was developed by the leading aesthetic medical laser designers who collaborated with top gynecologists to create a fast and efficient treatment for vaginal health complications.
What can I expect during my FemTouch treatment?
There’s no numbing or anesthesia required for the FemTouch.
During your treatment, you’ll lay with your feet in stirrups and once you’re comfortable, Dr. Chin inserts a sterilized applicator into the vulva and gently, strategically moves it along the vaginal canal, applying the laser to the vaginal tissues.
Dr. Chin then removes the device and treats the external vaginal area before the treatment is complete.
The actual laser treatment is fast, painless, and only takes two to five minutes to perform.
You’ll need to avoid sexual activity for at least 72 hours after, and you might need multiple treatments, with around four to six-week intervals.
What are the benefits of the FemTouch?
The FemTouch is an excellent treatment option that offers benefits for women in many different walks of life. FemTouch plumps and lifts the labia majora, tightens the vaginal canal, enhances blood flow to the clitoris, and much more.
Many women opt for FemTouch because it’s successful, comfortable, and there’s no downtime — you can get right back to enjoying your day immediately after. You’ll notice the improvements and result of FemTouch right away.
Some women report a mild, tolerable, warm and/or vibrating sensation internally when the device is inserted and active, but there’s no pain.
