    One of the best quality placebo-controlled, blinded, randomized controlled trials in the review for a device was on Geneveve’s radiofrequency device. The study showed improvement, according to Dr. Myckatyn.

    The Geneveve also came out ahead of the other radiofrequency devices because it’s single-use, whereas, the others require three treatments, initially, for best results.

    There are several laser handpieces sold with fractionated CO2 or erbium:YAG laser systems.

    Some cosmetic practices might have older versions of the laser platforms that today accommodate vaginal rejuvenation handpieces. The problem is the older versions don’t.

    “We have the Lumenis CO2 laser and can’t add a head to it, but, with newer versions, you can. Similarly Sciton makes an erbium:YAG laser called the Joule, and you can add a vaginal rejuvenation handpiece called diVa, but only if you have an updated laser. Alma has the FemiLift CO2, and if you have that particular Alma platform, you can add that particular laser,” Dr. Myckatyn says.
