Until recently, it has been difficult for most women with vaginal laxity (looseness) to find help for their condition. Although problems with vaginal laxity can cause loss of sexual sensation and may impact quality of life, self-confidence, and erotic intimacy, vaginal looseness has often been treated as an inevitable consequence of aging or giving birth.
What is vaginal laxity?
Vaginal laxity refers to the stretching and loosening of the vaginal canal. Vaginal looseness may occur in women who have given birth, especially if there have been multiple deliveries in a short period of time.
Laxity also occurs as women age. As estrogen levels decrease with menopause, the body produces less collagen and greater vaginal laxity may be experienced. These changes cause a reduction in friction and sensitivity during intercourse, which may lead to a lessening of sexual satisfaction.
How is vaginal laxity treated?
Prior to recent innovations in noninvasive laser procedures, for many years women with vaginal laxity were encouraged to perform Kegel exercises. However, these isometric exercises do not significantly strengthen the vaginal walls. Vaginal hormonal gels are sometimes prescribed to enhance lubrication and collagen production; although these gels are helpful, approximately 10-20% of women will experience residual symptoms.

FemTouch is a state-of-the-art approach to improving vaginal laxity. The CO2 fractional laser stimulates new vaginal tissue growth by promoting collagen regeneration, elastin fiber formation, the production of new blood vessels, and vaginal lubrication.
