Certain laser and radiofrequency devices approved by the FDA to treat abnormal tissue are being advertised to women to alleviate issues such as sexual discomfort and vaginal dryness. Unfortunately, use of these devices for unapproved treatments has lead to numerous reports of significant side effects including:
- vaginal burns
- vaginal scarring
- long-term pain
The FDA, in a very stern safety communication, has warned patients and doctors of the risk of serious injuries with these treatments, often referred to as vaginal rejuvenation.
There are several companies that manufacture and market these devices, including:
- MonaLisa Touch by Cynosure Inc. (Massachusetts)
- FemiLift by Alma Lasers (Illinois)
- BTL Industries, Inc. (Massachessetts)
- DiVa & Halo by Sciton Inc. (California)
- Thermiva by Thermigen Inc (Texas)
