The FemTouch vaginal laser rejuvenation treatment restores vaginal health reducing and often eliminating the signs of vaginal atrophy. This includes vaginal dryness, sexual discomfort, itching, and burning, as well as stress urinary incontinence and laxity suffered by so many women after childbirth and menopause. This quick, painless, nonsurgical treatment carries minimal risk and can be life-changing.
Boise, ID plastic surgeon Dr. Dean Sorensen is proud to offer the FemTouch laser, a revolutionary technology that is considered one of the newest and most improved "gold medal" lasers on the market. Essentially, it is the Mona Lisa Laser upgrade configured with state-of-the-art improvements that set the technology apart from most others. Prior to the procedure, a full medical history will be obtained and an examination will be performed by Dr. Sorensen to make sure you are a candidate for the FemTouch treatment. We request that you have an up-to-date pap smear and no other contraindications to treatment. In most cases, if you are an ideal candidate, you may have your first treatment in a few short minutes. There is pre-treatment preparation required.
"I had implant removal procedure 10 months ago. I had evaluations with several other doctors. Their evaluations felt sterile and impersonal. Dr Sorensen and his team explained every step of the process and were always available for questions. I was very impressed with the courtesy, professionalism, efficiency and the overall quality of providers and nurses who work with Dr Sorensen and the rest of the surgical team. Since then, I have been seeing Dr Sorensen’s aesthetician Katie for micro-needling. I had very severe adult acne with scarring. I have always had beautiful skin up until about 3 years ago. I had my third mico-needling treatment today. My skin is so much better now. It is finally acne free with only a few areas of redness to my t zone, and I am confident that these will be gone in a few weeks. It is so nice to be able to go without makeup and feel good about my skin once again. It was not expensive and well worth it. I am so grateful to Dr Sorensen and his team. They’re a fabulous and amazing group of people. I highly recommended the services that Dr Sorensen and his team provide."- A.F. / Google / Jan 13, 2019

The FemTouch™ procedure is short, painless and simple taking no more than 15 minutes. The internal vaginal mucosa and the external vaginal area can both be treated during the same session depending on the issues we are addressing. A gentle, brief vaginal exam with a speculum will be performed and the vaginal pH measured. A lubricated sterile probe will be inserted and the laser applied to the entire vaginal wall. There is no pain associated with the internal treatment. In the case of external treatment, we can provide a topical numbing cream to eliminate any discomfort.
There is no down time with the FemTouch™ treatment and patients can return to their normal daily activities. We do ask that you refrain from intercourse for 3 days.
The results of the FemTouch™ treatment are excellent and most patients experience significant improvement after just one Fem Touch treatment. We do recommend 3 treatments 4 - 6 weeks apart. Some patients report improvement within days, but the effects are more noticeable after a few weeks with the remodeling of collagen in the vaginal mucosa and continue progressively for 6 months. We recommend maintenance treatments every 1-2 years.
Vaginal Atrophy Symptoms
FemTouch™ is a quick, non-hormonal, non-surgical treatment for symptoms of vaginal atrophy, urinary stress incontinence, and vaginal laxity often associated with menopause and pregnancy:
- Painful intercourse
- Vaginal dryness, burning or itching
- Vaginal Laxity due to loss of elasticity and tone (known as laxity or vaginal relaxation syndrome)
- Stress Urinary incontinence or urgency
- Recurrent bladder infections (UTIs)
- Vaginal or vulva pain
- Reduced sensitivity and sexual arousal
- Changes in external vaginal appearance
The most common cause of vaginal atrophy is a decrease in estrogen, which is essential for maintaining the health and function of the vaginal and urinary systems. This happens naturally just before and after menopause, This natural decline in estrogen will often exacerbate damage that may have occurred as a result of pregnancy, childbirth or other factors. However, any women at risk of being in a low or suppressed estrogen state can suffer vaginal atrophy symptoms, including younger women following:
- Prolonged progesterone only contraception;
- Prolonged breastfeeding;
- Ovarian failure; and Induced menopause secondary to
- Breast cancer medications/treatment
- Surgery where ovaries are removed
- Stress, depression and strenuous exercise
While many menopause symptoms like hot flushes will pass in time, vaginal atrophy does not usually resolve and can worsen over the years, causing a consequent decline in comfort, intimate activities, and quality of life. It is important for women to realize that these symptoms are very common and treatable.
Our practice provides the FemTouch treatments starting at $750 up to $1,200 per treatment. The price varies depending on the treatment protocols established in the initial consultation with Dr. Sorensen.

- Improvement of urinary urgency and stress incontinence
- Vaginal tightening and better elasticity

How does it work ?
FemTouch™ works by applying a fractional CO2 laser to the vaginal mucosa stimulating the body’s regenerative processes.

By restoring a healthy and youthful vaginal environment, many symptoms of pregnancy and menopause improve or simply disappear.
