104 | SignatureMT To Your Health Sydne Skaer, FNP-BC A Game Changer for Women FemTouch Laser Therapy: pproximately 24 percent of women between the ages of 18 and 44 experience urinary incontinence. And, nearly 50 percent of postmenopausal women suffer from stress urinary incontinence, or the unintentional loss of urine caused by physical movement such as coughing, sneezing, laughing, running, or heavy liing. For years, women have been told that these unpleasant issues are simply a part of aging—something they must deal with silently on their own. ese problematic symptoms, which are caused by various physiological changes, can damage a woman's self-confidence and result in deep psychological distress. You no longer have to live with these unpleasant and embarrassing issues. ere is a new treatment available that can help resolve a number of issues for women. FemTouch CO2 laser therapy is a real game changer. FemTouch treatments can alleviate vaginal dryness, laxity, and discomfort during intercourse, as well as urinary incontinence issues. FemTouch treats vaginal health conditions by revitalizing tissue in a full 360-degrees. e laser treatments stimulate collagen and elastin to create new, healthy tissue and promote blood flow. Women can ultimately gain restoration of the vaginal canal to a premenopausal-like stage with FemTouch treatments and can experience fewer adverse symptoms that are accompanied by vaginal atrophy and incontinence. FemTouch is suitable for nearly all women, including those: • in peri-menopause, menopause, and post-menopause • with symptoms caused by surgery, cancer medication, or those who are unable to use hormone-based treatment • who haven't responded to topical estrogen or find administration unpleasant • with painful perineal scarring post-birth • with recurrent yeast or bladder infections • who experience pain, vaginal discomfort, or bleeding during intercourse • with lost elasticity, mild prolapse, or light bladder leakage Women who have had low or suppressed estrogen are also great candidates for FemTouch treatments. Low or suppressed estrogen can occur with prolonged progesterone-only contraception, prolonged breastfeeding, premature menopause, natural menopause, and induced menopause. Induced menopause may occur aer certain surgeries or cancer medications. FemTouch laser treatments are a safe and comfortable outpatient procedure that take less than five minutes. It is a minimally invasive procedure that does not require anesthesia, and women can expect to return to normal activity immediately. At least two to four sessions spaced four to six weeks apart are recommended for optimal outcomes. As aging continues, some women may require another single treatment every one to two years to maintain the beneficial results. FemTouch can help improve the quality of life for many women who suffer from these common symptoms.
