Vaginal Rejuvenation Q&A

by Patricia Faraz-Eslami, MD

What is Vaginal Rejuvenation?

Vaginal rejuvenation is a procedure that helps increase elasticity, strength, and mucus production in vaginal walls. At Pacific Women's Center, vaginal rejuvenation process is done with a state of the art system called Lumenis FemTouch. Lumenis FemTouchâ„¢ is a painless, minimally invasive, non-surgical, non-hormonal laser vaginal procedure, requiring no anesthesia that stimulates collagen production in the vaginal wall and can treat the following conditions:

  • Vaginal Laxity that may be caused by child birth
  • Vaginal Atrophy caused by normal process of aging or post-menopausal or cancer chemotherapy or lowered estrogen in nursing mothers
  • Stress Urinary Incontinence
  • Sexual Dysfunction
  • Vaginal Itching/Dryness

Why do Women Seek Vaginal Rejuvenation?

The reasons that women seek vaginal rejuvenation can vary, but the most common issue for most women is vaginal laxity. After childbirth, many women have an increase in vaginal laxity. This can lead to an inability to feel friction, an inability to get stimulated, and overall decreased sexual satisfaction for both partners. These type of issues can also be problems for post-menopausal women. During menopause, the decrease in hormones can lead to vaginal atrophy, dryness, and pain during intercourse. Many post-menopausal women also experience stress urinary incontinence, although it can happen in women who are 20 to 45 also. The Lumenis FemTouch laser can treat these issues in a non-invasive and non-surgical way.

What is the Vaginal Rejuvenation Process Like?

FemTouchâ„¢ is a simple and comfortable procedure that can improve your quality of life. The procedure is painless, requiring no anesthesia. It takes just a few minutes for each treatment and usually 3-4 treatments are needed to achieve the desired outcome on the vaginal lining. In clinical evaluations, women reported feeling an improvement already after 1-2 treatments.

How Long Will the Vaginal Rejuvenation Take?

In most cases, it is a fairly short procedure, lasting just minutes. Most women need a total of 2 to 4 treatments for optimum results.

What is Recovery After Vaginal Rejuvenation Like?

Recovery after Lumenis FemTouch laser treatment is very fast and easy. There is no downtime required, so patients can return to their usual routine and activities right away in most cases. Immediately after treatment, you may feel a very mild heat sensation in which case your treatment provider can prescribe a hydrating gel. This sensation usually should not last longer than a few hours. You are advised to refrain from intercourse for 72 hours post treatment.
