Due to a variety of factors, women may face uncomfortable vaginal conditions including dryness and urinary incontinence. This is typically the result of the normal aging process and occurs during or after menopause. In addition, pregnancy and childbirth may result in these unwanted effects on vaginal health. Thankfully, minimally invasive procedures can help. At Birmingham Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Rouchdi Rifai offers laser rejuvenation treatment using the FemTouch device.
Vaginal laser rejuvenation can be completed through FemTouch technology. This is a laser treatment that remodels the vaginal mucous layer using fractional CO2 beams. Vaginal laser rejuvenation using FemTouch is surprisingly noninvasive and comfortable for patients. In just a few treatment sessions with Dr. Rouchdi Rifai, patients can experience reduced symptoms including vaginal atrophy, dryness, and urinary incontinence.
The vaginal laser rejuvenation procedure can be completed quickly in our comfortable office setting. The treatment is overall comfortable and no anesthesia is necessary. During treatment, the sterilized FemTouch handpiece is applied to the vaginal wall and moved in a 360-degree pattern, allowing the fractional CO2 laser energy to be directed to the entire surface area. This process takes only a few minutes to complete. During treatment, patients typically experience a warming sensation that is overall mild. Pain is not expected through FemTouch treatment.
Most vaginal laser rejuvenation patients undergo between two and four treatment sessions in total. In some cases, patients can reach their goal results in as little as a single treatment session. During your consultation with Dr. Rifai, a customized treatment plan for your needs can be determined.
FemTouch vaginal laser rejuvenation is most commonly recommended for patients who are menopausal or postmenopausal. The treatment can also be beneficial for patients experiencing symptoms following childbirth. Prior to pursuing FemTouch vaginal laser rejuvenation treatment, Dr. Rifai typically recommends that patients consult with a gynecologist to rule out any underlying conditions which could pose significant health concerns. Generally speaking, patients should be otherwise healthy before choosing FemTouch vaginal laser rejuvenation.

Vaginal laser rejuvenation with FemTouch requires no downtime. Patients can immediately return to their normal routines after their appointments. Dr. Rifai will recommend that patients wait at least 72 hours after their treatment before engaging in sexual activity. A hydrating gel can be prescribed to reduce discomfort through the healing process. FemTouch treatment does not result in any major side effects, though patients often experience itching. The use of hydrating gel, as directed, can help alleviate this symptom, which should last no longer than one week.
For most patients, improvement in vaginal health is noticeable about 3-6 months after vaginal laser rejuvenation with FemTouch. During a consultation, Dr. Rifai can provide realistic expectations for your results.
What Our Patients Say
“Fadi Mayta did my Botox & Juvaderm which I bought on Groupon. He did a fantastic job & I’m thinking of getting a procedure to eliminate the bags under my eyes.”
“I had 2 surgeries with Dr rafai (December 2022 and March 2023) both went very smoothly and both he and his staff were available and able to answer questions I had throughout my recovery. I’m happy with the results and will use Dr rafai again if I decide to proceed with future surgeries. (I previously had bariatric surgery and have a lot of excess skin but chose to only address my torso/abdomen at this time.)”
“Katelyn has done such an amazing job. She is so easy to talk to while being thorough and informative, always keeping me in the loop with what she is doing. I always felt comfortable and felt like she really cared about what was best for me. I cannot wait for my next appointment with her and would recommend her to anyone looking to be in the best of hands.”
