Many patients will have seen today’s headlines regarding the FDA warning against vaginal rejuvenation or tightening treatments and here at The Clinic, Dr Mayoni is keen to provide reassurance and perspective on what today’s news means for them.
The FDA has warned of the risks associated with some vaginal rejuvenation therapies which could include burns, scarring and recurring pain. Importantly, it will take action against companies who launch and promote these devices without the proper scientific studies and clinical evidence to demonstrate that they are safe and effective.
Dr Mayoni welcomes the FDA’s statement as it ensures that the health, safety and wellbeing of women is put front and centre, by demanding that such treatments are properly tested for safety and efficacy.
“I am proud to be the Head UK Trainer and brand ambassador for Viveve and I believe passionately that women suffering from SUI (Stress urinary incontinence) and vaginal laxity should be offered a safe, effective treatment delivered by medical experts,” says Dr Mayoni. “Today’s warning from the FDA comes at an important time, as there are now many vaginal rejuvenation brands out there and women need to know that the treatment they choose has been properly tested for safety”.
At The Clinic, we only offer clinically proven treatments of the highest quality and not all ‘heat treatments’ for vaginal rejuvenation are the same. We offer the Geneveve treatment, by Viveve which is the only FDA-approved vaginal rejuvenation treatment available in the UK and has a wealth of clinical data to demonstrate the treatments’ safety and efficacy. Viveve was not one of the companies included in the FDA’s statement or warning letters, and has a wealth of quality clinical data demonstrating the treatments’ safety and efficacy.
