Does FemTouch hurt?

It takes 5 minutes; no anesthesia; no pain. If laser is used on the outside of the vagina, you must use strong topical anesthesia
Not at all
Pain with Vaginal Laser
FemTouch is a painless and quick procedure. The only thing that is slightly uncomfortable for some women is the preparation which requires the doctor to dry the vaginal walls with a gauze to maximize the penetration of the laser into the tissue. This can be mildly uncomfortable, but is not painful. The recovery is minimal. If there is a slight burning sensation, a hyaluronic gel that can be purchased without a prescription can be used for relief.
