Vaginal Rejuvenation

Beasley Allen is investigating cases of serious injuries resulting from thermal burns after undergoing radiofrequency and laser-based vaginal rejuvenation treatments.

What is Vaginal Rejuvenation?

Vaginoplasty, also known as posterior colporrhaphy, is a way to tighten the vagina and correct pelvic organs that drop from their normal positions. An alternative to vaginoplasty is a vaginal-tightening process that heats tissues with radiofrequency waves or lasers. In the early to mid-2000s, the use of radiofrequency and laser treatments for vaginal rejuvenation became increasingly popular. Manufacturers of radiofrequency and laser vaginal rejuvenation treatments boast that the procedure can improve vaginal dryness and urinary incontinence. They also claim treatments create a “firmer, more youthful vaginal area.” Several manufacturers also claim that the procedure is painless.

Vaginal Rejuvenation Linked to Severe Burns & Other Injuries

Despite the manufacturers’ claims that the procedure is painless, many women experience severe pain in their vaginal areas due to thermal burns from radiofrequency and laser-based vaginal rejuvenation treatments. The burns cause scarring, muscle spasms, urinary issues, painful intercourse, infections, and inflammation.

FDA’s Concerns Over Vaginal Rejuvenation

In July 2018, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said that it has approved laser and other energy-based devices only for destroying precancerous cervical or vaginal tissue and genital warts. It has not approved the devices for vaginal rejuvenation procedures. The FDA warned seven device manufacturers (Alma Lasers, BTL Industries, Cynosure, InMode, Sciton, Thermigen and Venus Concept) about inappropriately marketing their devices. The FDA noted:

These products have serious risks and don’t have adequate evidence to support their use for these purposes. We are deeply concerned women are being harmed.
