FemTouch, the latest addition to the AcuPulse product family, addresses vaginal health-related conditions by promoting the remodeling of the vaginal mucosal layer leading to the restoration of the vaginal canal to a premenopausal-like stage. In a series of comfortable and easy office-based treatments, each taking no more than five minutes to complete, FemTouch provides a fast and efficient solution resulting in positive outcomes after only two to four treatments, as indicated by patients around the world.
“My menopause patients are so thankful for helping to restore their sex lives and relieve their vaginal dryness,” said Scott Evan Eder, MD, The Center for Women’s Health & Wellness, New Jersey. “One patient said she felt 19 years old again!”
The AcuPulse CO2 laser family of products is an upgradable, all-inclusive platform providing both precision and flexibility in minimally invasive laparoscopic and colposcopy procedures in the inpatient and outpatient domains.
Fertility and pain-related indications including endometriosis, adhesions and uterine fibroids, can be treated with ideal control over cutting, ablation and coagulation with minimal intervention to nearby tissue. The treatment results in minimal thermal damage, preservation of valuable structures and an overall enhancement of a woman’s quality of life.
“Treating endometriosis lesions on critical intra-abdominal structures, such as the bowel, bladder, ureter and major blood vessels, can be quite challenging as one needs to avoid perforations and minimize risk of adhesion formation and other potential complications,” said Ceana Nezhat, MD, FACOG, FACS, Nezhat medical Center, Georgia. “Using CO2 laser fibers during laparoscopic procedures enables us to precisely target the desired treatment areas with markedly reduced thermal damage to surrounding tissues. This new AcuPulse CO2 technology is the wave of the future in minimally invasive gynecological surgery.”
“Lumenis collaborates with leading gynecologists to develop various solutions to advance the treatment of women’s health,” said Tzipi Ozer-Armon, CEO of Lumenis. “With an extensive gynecological portfolio of products that offer optimal control and precision, Lumenis proudly offers women around the globe comprehensive solutions to improve their gynecological health with less post-operative morbidity, fewer disease recurrence rates and, ultimately, an improved quality of life.”
