FemTouch vaginal rejuvenation is a nonsurgical treatment that can help to diminish vaginal laxity and eradicate or lessen symptoms of vaginal atrophy including vaginal dryness, sexual discomfort, stress urinary incontinence, as well as unpleasant itching and/or burning sensations. At our Metairie and New Orleans, LA practice, we are proud to offer this innovative treatment option for women who are suffering from unpleasant vaginal symptoms that can occur after/during childbirth and menopause. Using a fractional CO2 laser, FemTouch helps to increase the production of collagen in the vaginal area to restore elasticity and tightness.
FemTouch works by applying the fractional CO2 laser to the vaginal mucosa stimulating the body’s regenerative processes. This process increases blood supply and collagen to the vaginal mucosa restoring integrity and elasticity, as well as the proper pH levels of the vaginal tissue. By restoring a healthy and youthful vaginal environment, many symptoms of childbirth and menopause improve or simply disappear.

"I had a breast augmentation done in 2011. The results were amazing!"- Anonymous / Vitals / Feb 11, 2016
"Khoobehi & Associates: 10 of 10 recommend. Exceeds Expectations. Dr. Khoobehi is without a doubt an extremely talented surgeon, and the proof is in the product I received. His eye is precise, and he was very honest and conservative about which services from his menu would be right for me. Every suggestion made by Dr. Khoobehi was dead on. The results of my abdominoplasty, fat transfer, and liposuction are beyond amazing. Dr. Khoobehi’s talent is surrounded by an amazing support staff of nurses, consultants, aestheticians, administrative staff, and others that were extremely helpful throughout my process. My husband and I were more then impressed with the all-inclusive plan provided for my services. There is no stone left unturned and no fiscal surprises after surgery. The surgery booklet answers ALL the questions, even the soft ones that may come through the emotional part of plastic surgery. The post surgery plan ensures the best recovery. It’s amazing how quickly I have been able to get back to the new normal. Thanks to Dr. Khoobehi and his team, my 40 is my new 20!"- AA / Office Visit / Jul 15, 2021
"I am a 65 year old woman who has always dreamed of having bigger breasts. I remember at age 40 I told my mother I wanted them (after being married 2 x and having 3 children) and my mother asked me “how old are you – you went this far, you don’t need that.” Well, I never stopped dreaming of having bigger and better breasts. Fast forward 25 years and after raising those children, caring for elderly family members, watching them die, and all the other caring for others… I decided that if I could lose 15 pounds and get my now post-menopausal body in better shape (flatten that tummy), then I would treat myself to a boob job. I did just that! Dr. Kamran Khoobehi was the doctor I chose as I knew he was the best in his field and I am so happy I did. His office staff are professional, friendly, sensitive, and very caring. Not once did anyone make me feel I was too old for this! Dr. Khoobehi is charming, witty and sensitive. He’s also a fantastic surgeon! He understood what I was looking for – not a Dolly Parton experience, just a full C cup. While I was nervous at first, I knew I could trust him and that’s why I went to him – he IS the best! Surgery went well and my post op experience was uneventful … I never even needed the pain meds at all! Sure it was uncomfortable for a few days, because I was carrying a little heavier bosom, but within a week – I was good to go! I highly recommend Dr. Khoobehi – you will not be sorry. He asked me on the first post op visit… “Ok, now do you love me, or do you hate me or what?” I replied… Oh, I LOVE you! I’m so happy I had this done – one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life – even at my age --- because it was for me and I look great!"- BC / Office Visit / Jul 13, 2021

Vaginal Atrophy Symptoms
FemTouch is a quick, nonhormonal, nonsurgical treatment for symptoms of vaginal atrophy, urinary stress incontinence, and vaginal laxity often associated with menopause and pregnancy including:
- 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. The 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
- Breast cancer medications/treatment
- Surgery where ovaries are removed
- Stress, depression, and/or 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.
The FemTouch procedure typically takes about 15 – 30 minutes to complete. 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 will be measured prior to treatment. A lubricated, sterile probe will be inserted and the laser will be applied to the entire vaginal wall. In the case of external treatment, we can provide a topical numbing cream to eliminate any discomfort.
What to Expect
There is no downtime associated with a FemTouch treatment and patients can return to their normal daily activities upon leaving our office. It is recommended that you refrain from intercourse for at least three days after treatment. Any additional aftercare instructions will be given you to you post treatment.
Most patients experience significant improvement after just one FemTouch treatment. However, optimal results may be achieved through a series of treatments. 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 six months. While initial results can be seen after one treatment, it typically takes anywhere from 2 – 4 treatments to notice optimal results. Treatments also are recommended to be spaced about 4 – 6 weeks apart. At your initial consultation, a customized treatment plan will be conducted to meet your specific goals. We also recommend maintenance treatments every 1 – 2 years.
