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.

There is no pain associated with this quick, easy treatment. Femtouch by Lumenis is the most advanced laser available to treat a variety of symptoms related to women’s health.

Pain associated with fem touch

FemTouch is relatively painless and quick procedure.  There may be some slight discomfort when the probe is inserted but patients tolerate this very well.  After the procedure there should be no real discomfort.  In the clinical trials some  patients reported a slight burning sensation which was mildly uncomfortable.  We have had no patients report discomfort during or after the procedure.

Hello, this is a very common question.  In the procedures I have performed, I find that applying oil to the probe makes insertion more comfortable, therefore it is typically pain free; however, the external portion may be slightly uncomfortable if the patient is not numbed properly.

Fem Touch painful?

Hello and thank you for your question.The internal part of the procedure is painless. The skin on the outside is applied with a topical anesthetic. Patients do not complain of any pain. Some times if a patient has vaginal tightness, they may feel a little pressure with insertion of the vaginal probe.

Pain?

It takes 5 minutes; no anesthesia; no pain.  If laser is used on the outside of the vagina, you must use strong topical anesthesia

Femtouch is a painless in office procedure that takes about 10 minutes. Placing a small amount of lubrication on the probe makes it very easy to perform the procedure. Some patients may have a slight amount of bleeding for a day but most don't. It's a great procedure for increasing collagen deposition in the vaginal wall which not only tightens the vagina but also increases lubrication and helps with mild cases of stress urinary incontinence
