Fort Worth Vaginal Rejuvenation with FemTouch
Vaginal health is a rarely discussed and often misunderstood topic—and many women view their concerns as something they just have to live with.
Like the quality of your skin, strength of your bones, or health of your joints, the vagina and surrounding areas are impacted by aging and life events. Childbirth, medical conditions, and menopause can all have an effect on the appearance, function, and sensation of the vagina.
Women experiencing vaginal dryness, urinary stress incontinence, or decreased sexual function have a new, non-surgical option: FemTouch.™
How does FemTouch work to improve vaginal health?
FemTouch is a CO2 laser technology specifically tuned to promote new tissue growth and collagen production in the vaginal tissues, helping to restore natural moisture and tighten and tone the vaginal wall. During treatment, the FemTouch device administers gentle, controlled energy along the vaginal wall, creating microscopic thermal “injuries” in the tissue without harming surrounding areas.
FemTouch is an FDA approved technology that provides safe and consistent results when performed by a certified clinician.
Your FemTouch treatment at Kirby Plastic Surgery
During a private consultation, Dr. Kirby and her team will assess your concerns and help you understand possible solutions. The FemTouch procedure is performed right here in our office in a comfortable, private exam room. Treatment typically takes just a few minutes and does not require anesthesia or numbing, as there is no pain.
The FemTouch applicator is cylindrical, and it was designed with your personal comfort in mind. The applicator is inserted into the vagina, rotated in a full circle and retracted gradually to ensure the whole vaginal wall has been treated. Depending on your needs, FemTouch can also be used on the external vulvar tissues.
Patients report that the procedure is very comfortable and produces only a minor heat sensation. For the first three days after treatment, you will need to avoid strenuous exercise, excess heat or hot showers, vaginal intercourse, and inserting anything into the vagina, including tampons and liquid products.
It is normal to experience some short-term discomfort, itching, discharge, or dryness in the days following treatment, so be sure to use any vaginal gels as directed by Dr. Kirby and her team. For the best, long-lasting results, most patients will need three to four treatment sessions.
