Is Vaginal Rejuvenation FDA Approved?
Is Vaginal Rejuvenation FDA Approved?
“Vaginal Rejuvenation” is a term that women are suddenly hearing a lot more about in women’s magazines, talk shows, blogs and online videos. However, it is important to understand that vaginal rejuvenation is a fairly general expression and not really a specific medical term.
That being said there ARE new medical treatments that CAN help “rejuvenate” vaginal tissue to improve dry or itching vaginas, painful intercourse or sexual intimacy in general. In this article board certified plastic surgeon discusses FDA approval of so-called “vaginal rejuvenation” treatments.
Vaginal Rejuvenation and FDA Approval
To begin with, it is important to understand how the FDA process works. It can take years to get through the paperwork and required clinical trials of the FDA approval process. If a product or procedure is not yet approved by the FDA, it does NOT mean that it doesn’t work – it just means that it hasn’t made it through all the hurdles of the FDA approval process.
Reputable doctors who are on the cutting edge of state-of-the-art medical procedures often use procedures that have been tested, proven to be safe and effective, even before FDA approval is official. In fact, this is often how advances and breakthroughs in medicine are made.
Viveve Geneveve Vaginal Rejuvenation and FDA Approval
Currently, in the United States, the Viveve System is cleared by the FDA for general surgical procedures for electrocoagulation and hemostasis. And, the Viveve Geneveve System is already approved for the treatment of vaginal laxity and/or the improvement of sexual function in 56 countries around the world.
In March of 2018, the FDA approved Viveve to proceed with the VIVEVE II clinical study to determine the effects of Geneveve treatment on improvement of sexual function.
So, while the Viveve Geneveve vaginal rejuvenation treatment itself is not yet actually FDA approved for “vaginal rejuvenation,” it is FDA approved for other uses and is currently under study for FDA approval for vaginal rejuvenation.
Meanwhile, while the FDA process drags along, thousands of women in the US and worldwide have reported that their bladder leaks have stopped and their sex life has improved after Viveve Geneveve vaginal rejuvenation treatment.
