Addressing the FDA Warning on Vaginal Rejuvenation Devices

Addressing patient concerns about energy-based vaginal treatments

On July 30, U.S. Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Scott Gottlieb, MD, released a statement concerning devices marketed for “vaginal rejuvenation.” He noted that, although the FDA has cleared or approved laser and energy-based devices for indications including the destruction of abnormal or pre-cancerous cervical or vaginal tissue, as well as condylomas (genital warts), none of these devices have been evaluated or confirmed by the FDA for “vaginal rejuvenation.”

Concerns that lead patients to seek vaginal rejuvenation treatments—procedures that alter the female genitalia, both functionally and aesthetically—are varied and complex, ranging from robust (excess) skin to urinary incontinence, loss of sensation, atrophic internal tissues and vaginal laxity. Just as symptoms vary, treatment options range from surgery to topicals to noninvasive energy-based devices.

Emotional Impact of Labiaplasty

In an article published in Aesthetic Surgery (March 2017), researchers Marika Tiggemann, PhD, Julie Mattiske, PhD, and Gemma Sharp conducted a retrospective study in which they examined the psychological outcomes of the increasingly popular labiaplasty procedure. Their goal was to examine the effect of the surgery on patients’ sexual satisfaction and psychological well-being, as well as to identify patient characteristics that may predict surgical satisfaction.
