Vulvovaginal atrophy (VVA) accompanies the natural aging of a woman and her vagina and affects up to 80% of women after menopause. CO₂ lasers have recently been developed to address VVA symptoms in women, and these treatments have been shown to significantly relieve some of these symptoms.
Femtouch™ is an innovative state-of-the-art CO₂ laser technology treatment that is applied along the vaginal walls and delivers a very gentle and controlled ablation and coagulation of the vaginal lining addressing common vaginal health related issues and improving Women’s health. This is a minimally invasive fractional scanning procedure, delivering a continuous wave of fractional energy that provides uniform coverage along the vaginal wall. The microbeam penetration into the lamina propria is controlled using the available settings, which range from 7.5-12.5 mJ.
FemTouch promotes the growth of new vaginal tissue through stimulation that triggers collagen production. The treatment takes between 2 – 5 minutes to perform and patients will often need 3 – 4 sessions to get their desired results. Typically, your practitioner will perform the treatments with a 4-6 week interval in between sessions. Each treatment will cost $550 + GST
