How Laser Energy Can Restore Your Vaginal Health

How Laser Energy Can Restore Your Vaginal Health

The changes in your body after the estrogen drop of menopause can be dramatic. While every woman has her own unique experience at this time of life, there are plenty of common symptoms that combine in numbers and intensities to form each menopause encounter. 

Some women discover that vaginal health is a problem, which is usually due to the loss of collagen in the mucosal layers lining the vagina and genitals. When it reaches a problem stage, it can interfere with sexual satisfaction and urinary system performance. 

Radiance Wellness MediSpa offers treatments with the FemTouch™ laser system, addressing many of the problems caused by collagen loss. You’ll likely notice a difference after your initial session, and the benefits blossom with follow-up care. 

Vaginal rejuvenation with the FemTouch system’s laser energy restores your vaginal health and triggers a natural healing response so you’re not laden with side effects from medication. Here’s how it works. 

The far-reaching effects of vaginal atrophy

The ovaries are the primary production centers for estrogen in your body, so when they no longer produce the hormone — after menopause, hysterectomy, or illness — changes begin throughout your body. Some women see little effect while others experience symptoms of life-changing intensity. 

Vaginal health frequently suffers, with symptoms like: 

As well as affecting the vagina, loss of collagen in genital tissue contributes to changes to urinary system performance. You may notice more frequent urinary tract infections (UTIs), changes to urination patterns including frequency and incontinence, and burning sensations during urination. 

Medically, doctors refer to these collective symptoms as vaginal atrophy or the genitourinary syndrome of menopause (GSM). 

How laser energy can restore your vaginal health

Changes in estrogen balance can take a toll on the volume of collagen tissue in the walls of the vagina. Collagen is a substance that your body can continue to manufacture, but it usually does so only in response to an injury. 

The FemTouch system uses a carefully controlled, fractional CO2 laser to project light energy through the surface of the vaginal lining into the collagen support layer beneath. Laser light gently heats collagen tissue to the point where your body detects damage. All you feel is a comfortable warmth during the course of your short in-office procedure.

There’s no medication or supplemental hormone use involved with FemTouch. In the weeks after your treatment, old tissue flushes naturally from your body as new collagen takes its place. Your vaginal walls gain the benefits of this renewed collagen layer. Urinary symptoms subside and sexual enjoyment returns. 

While every patient has their own response, most women find suitable results with two to four FemTouch sessions.
