Many post-menopausal women experience lots of symptoms like vaginal dryness, discomfort, itching, burning, dryness, discomfort, or pain with sexual intercourse as well as increased urinary frequency. It is due to a lack of an essential hormone after menopause known as oestrogen. Oestrogen is vital to maintain vaginal health and keep it wet by causing vaginal secretions. Loss of oestrogen as in post-menopausal, can cause thinning(atrophy) of vagina, dryness, itching, pain, and it also increases the risk of urinary and vaginal infections.
What is vaginal laser rejuvenation?
Vaginal laser therapy is a lunchtime, minimally invasive, non-surgical, non-hormonal laser vaginal procedure which stimulates new collagen production in the vagina. Lumenis, the leading company for aesthetic medical laser has developed FemTouch laser (available @Derma Circles, New Delhi) which causes an increase in blood supply, hydration, and thus new collagen deposition as well as remodelling of the vagina.
How many sessions of FemTouch are required?
