Having a family is one of life’s profound purposes. Childbirth, though, takes a toll on a woman’s intimate area. Mothers in the Mountain View, CA area have a painless, nonsurgical option for vaginal rejuvenation. The doctors at Menkes Clinic & Surgery Center offer FemTouch.
What changes when you have a baby?
You may deliver vaginally, without tearing the perineum (area between vagina and anus), but tissues are stretched and bruised. If the perineum tears or you have an episiotomy, skin is sutured to foster healing. Even with a C-section delivery, pregnancy puts a great deal of pressure on pelvic organs and strains the vaginal area.
Following childbirth (especially after multiple deliveries), a woman may experience:
- Lax vaginal tissues.
- Reduced sensation for both partners during intimacy.
- Dryness and irritation.
- Stretched labia.
- Urinary incontinence.
Feeling like yourself again
Pelvic floor exercises (Kegels) may improve some of these conditions, but effectiveness is limited. FemTouch vaginal rejuvenation helps your body feel like your own again.
Lie back and relax while FemTouch CO2 laser therapy is applied to internal (and external, if you wish) intimate areas. You feel a sensation of warmth as energy penetrates, but little or no discomfort. Laser energy stimulates natural collagen production thickening, tightening, and rejuvenating vulvar/vaginal tissues. A session takes only a few minutes, and there is essentially no downtime, although you should abstain from sex for 72 hours. Some women report improvement right away. Dr. Menkes generally recommends three treatments spaced about a month apart for optimal results, and annual re-treatment to maintain benefits.
Not just for moms!
FemTouch is ideal for any woman who wants a drug-free option to increase lubrication, reduce irritation, improve sexual satisfaction, and address urinary urgency or incontinence. We treat post-menopausal women and those who have had hysterectomy, chemotherapy, or radiation therapy.
