FACE is excited to be the only clinic in Michigan to bring together both FemTouch™ and VIVEVE Geneveve vaginal rejuvenation treatments, called The Love Lift™ for improved intimacy, bladder function, and overall quality of life. FemTouch CO2 laser treatments have been shown to promote restoration of the physiology of the vaginal canal to a pre childbirth and premenopausal-like stage, as well as aid in the reduction of the vulvo-vaginal aging symptoms that accompany vaginal atrophy and incontinence.
Symptoms of vaginal atrophy include:
Symptoms of laxity can include:
During the 5 minute treatment, a sterilized applicator will move along the vaginal wall in an outward motion, applying the laser in a 360 degree pattern covering the entire area You may experience a minor heat sensation during the treatment, but it is very gentle and you should not feel uncomfortable as there is no pain.
Q. What is Vaginal Rejuvenation?
A. Female health restoration and vaginal rejuvenation are becoming more mainstream topics, so women no longer have to suffer in silence. Studies show that the number one complaint post childbirth is vaginal laxity. Studies also show almost half of all post-menopausal women suffer from stress-related urinary incontinence, and eight out of 10 post-menopausal women live with vaginal atrophy or dryness. Young and more mature woman have intimacy challenges such as lack of desire, arousal, orgasm, lubrication, satisfaction, and painful intercourse. Most women feel too embarrassed to speak about these problems. The few that do find their voices to discuss such intimate concerns are met with resistance due to a lack of experience or understanding. As laser rejuvenation and wellness experts, we recognize the importance of vaginal health to women, both from a clinical and emotional standpoint. Our team is here to provide you with the professional insight and support you need to regain your sense of femininity and enjoyment of life.
Q. What are the benefits to FemTouch™?
A. FemTouch™ is a laser-based system that is specifically designed to treat conditions related to vaginal health. The treatments work by applying CO2 laser energy to the mucous layer of the vagina. FemTouch™ helps with: Vaginal aging in general Vaginal atrophy Vaginal dryness Frequent pain and itching, including during sexual intercourse Vaginal laxity that affects a woman’s ability to be satisfied during sexual intercourse Stress urinary incontinence which often occurs in women between 20 to 45 years old after having children.
How does FemTouch™ compare to DIVA?
The FemTouch has no pain or downtime. The DIVA is not a CO2, and is the only Erbium used in the vaginal canal because it was an offshoot of their Halo laser on the face. Erbium is too attracted to water, so the Halo is only a very surface treatment. With that you get more discomfort, pain, and bleeding. DIVA also uses numbing. The FemTouch uses no numbing as there is no pain.
Q. How is Vaginal Rejuvenation with FemTouch™ Performed?
A. The FemTouch™ system is designed with a special unit that easily fits inside the vagina. The treatment only takes 5 minutes and it is painless and doesn’t require any numbing or downtime. The CO2 laser energy is emitted from the device and absorbed by the walls of the vagina, and triggers a coagulation response in the vaginal lining helping to build collagen and tighten the tissue. You may feel a mild warming sensation and vibration during the treatment.
Q. What are the side effects or recovery with FemTouch™?
A. There are no known side-effects associated with FemTouch™ vaginal rejuvenation treatments. Immediately following treatment, some women may feel a very mild warm sensation for a few hours, but most feel nothing. FemTouch™ vaginal rejuvenation does not require any downtime for recovery. Women can have solutions without medications, surgery, hormones, anesthesia, side effects, or specialty care. Just three, five minute treatments produce significant improvement. You can resume your normal activities after each treatment, but you should avoid sexual intercourse for at least 72 hours.
