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
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 hand piece 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.
