Woman ConcernedWhat’s the Problem with Vaginal Rejuvenation Lasers?

Vaginal rejuvenation procedures are purported to treat a variety of conditions, such as vaginal dryness, pain during intercourse (dyspareunia), and vaginal laxity. The procedures utilize lasers or radiofrequency devices that are intended to destroy or reshape vaginal tissue.

Although these devices received approval from the FDA to treat more serious conditions such as cancer and genital warts, they have not been approved or well studied for vaginal rejuvenation processes, FDA said. What’s more, vaginal rejuvenation has been linked to adverse health complications including vaginal burns, scarring, pain during sexual intercourse and recurring or chronic pain.

BTL Emsella is a newer technology that provides relief to women suffering from stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and other menopause-related health complications. BTL claims the Emsella Procedure is completely non-invasive, and women are able to return to their routines almost immediately.

How Many Sessions Do I Need?

BTL Cellutone, another unique procedure offered by BTL uses the power of vibrations while ensuring patient comfort and safety, according to the manufacturer.

What Kind of Results Can I Expect From Cellutone?

Cellutone treatment can significantly help improve the appearance of cellulite and the overall skin texture, BTL says. Patients have reported visible improvements after just 1 session.

About Class Action Lawsuits

Although we are a nationally recognized class action firm, the Medical Device Litigation Group at our law firm has decided against the filing of a BTL Emselma class action suit and is currently filing individual claims on behalf of injured individuals and/or their family members who were injured by vaginal rejuvenation surgery.

A class action is a type of lawsuit filed with the court on behalf of large group of people or “class” of individuals that have been injured or wronged. The class is represented by the law firm and the case is generally decided upon a single member of the class who is sometimes referred to as the “class representative or class rep.”

Why Our Law Firm Is Filing Individual Lawsuits Opposed To a Class Action

In some instances, a class action may offer some advantages, as they aggregate a large number of individualized claims into one representational lawsuit. The aggregation can increase the efficiency of the legal process, lower the costs of litigation and in some cases offer the solution to a common problem wherein small recoveries do not provide the incentive for any individual or law firm to file an individual lawsuit.

However, a class action suit can also be a detriment to many class members, as they are often forced into a blanket “low ball settlement” and higher attorney fees. At Schmidt & Clark, LLP we understand that our clients are suffering emotionally and economically due to loss of wages and/or high medical bills and we plan to maximize each client’s recovery by filing individual BTL Emsellma lawsuits on their behalf.
