Abstract

Nonsurgical vulvovaginal rejuvenation (NVR) is growing in popularity as a treatment for restoration of youthful female genitalia. Numerous radiofrequency (RF) and laser devices have entered the market claiming improvement in vaginal laxity and genitourinary syndrome of menopause. There is a paucity of evidence existing concerning the effectiveness of these devices for both pre- and postmenopausal women with laxity and/or atrophy at the histologic and clinical level. Therefore, the goal of this review is to scrutinize the peer-reviewed data on NVR with RF and laser devices, identify gaps in existing literature, and propose opportunities for further investigation.
