Message from Dr. Cherie Richey
Hello, my name is Dr. Cherie Richey and I am an OB/GYN in practice in Columbus, Ohio for over 18 years. Over the last few years, my practice has expanded its offerings from women's health services to aesthetics and in so many ways it has been a natural and welcome evolution. Clearly, all of my medical patients are women and I love all aspects of caring for them.
The addition of laser services to help those patients who are struggling with intimacy issues with their partners “gave birth” to my aesthetic practice because the same technology that can improve the functionality of the vagina can also resurface other areas of the body. I have always been artistic and had a “great eye” so the addition of what some may consider “superficial” services have been “SUPER fulfilling” to me. My philosophy is to promote natural beauty whether that be via maintenance of youth or promotion of a more youthful look.
Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation
FemTouch is the laser vaginal rejuvenation treatment by Lumenis, Ltd., a company renowned for its development of medical devices. During FemTouch™ out-patient treatment, your physician will insert and move a sterilized applicator along the vaginal walls in a 360˚ pattern. FemTouch™ is the latest non-invasive, painless laser vaginal treatment, and triggers incipient tissue remodeling. This is great for women experiencing the following symptoms:
- Diminished sexual pleasure
- Stress urinary incontinence
- Pelvic organ prolapse
What to Expect from FemTouch™?
Throughout FemTouch™ out-patient treatment, you may experience a minor heating sensation. However, FemTouch™ is an extremely gentle procedure and discomfort should be minimal. The FemTouch™ procedure requires 2-4 outpatient sessions lasting a few minutes each. Multiple sessions ensure the desired outcome of vaginal tissue. On average, women who have started FemTouch™ treatment have noticed improvement after just 1-2 treatment sessions.
Columbus Women’s Care will discuss all treatment options available, based on your concerns and medical history.
Laser Hair Removal
Many desire smooth skin on the faces, legs, and across the entire body without the need for constantly shaving and waxing undesirable hair. With Vectus Laser, it targets and destroys hair cells responsible for hair growth without impacting the surrounding skin. After just a few treatments, the treatment area will be hair free!
How Does Vectus Laser Work?
Expect for the Vectus Laser Hair Removal treatment to be easy and practically pain-free. Dr. Richie will ask that your treatment area is clean-shaven prior to your appointment. Lasting anywhere between 5-30 minutes, this treatment has been benefits compared to traditional shaving or waxing. She will pass the laser handpiece over your treatment area, allowing cells in the active phase of cell growth to respond to this treatment. Most patients need between 4-6 sessions to completely remove hair follicles.
You will notice a gradual decrease in hair thickness and the amount of hair following each treatment. Dr. Richie will work with your schedule to deliver optimal results.

Laser Skin Tightening
Laser skin tightening is a non-surgical treatment that reverses signs of aging. Using heat on underlying layers of skin, laser skin tightening stimulates collagen growth for healthier and younger-looking skin. This comfortable procedure is most commonly performed on the face and neck as patients want to target fine lines and wrinkles.
