When you hear the word rejuvenate these days, I bet you think about your mind and body. You might even be wondering if you will ever be able to reach the blissful state again where you actually feel anew and fresh in your lifetime.

You may fantasize about how a tropical vacation, getting a massage, or catching 7 straight hours of sleep could get you there. That would be a rejuvenation party for most of us, at least for a few hours anyway.

But you probably weren’t thinking about your vagina, were you? (Well, not until you clicked on this article anyway.) Because if you didn’t know there was such thing as rejuvenating your vagina, rest assured, folks, vagina rejuvenation is a thing. What a time to be alive.

If you want to take 30 years off your fragrant curly patch, you can. And it only takes about three vagina rejuvenation treatments which are said to “fix issues with dryness, incontinence and pain during sex, along with altering the outside appearance,” says Kelly Rainey, owner of Vitality Institute of Agoura in Los Angeles.

According to an article in People, Jada Pickett Smith, 46, now has the vagina of a 16-year-old, and says the outside of her love canal looks like “a little beautiful peach,” thanks to a few treatments.

So, how do they actually “rejuvenate” a vagina? Rainey explains it’s a non-surgical process, where a wand is used to go in and out of the vagina and heat is used to “stimulate cellular turnover.” This allows the vagina to go back to its glory days, which is nice and all, but if you aren’t having pain during intercourse or bladder issues, we all know your lady bits are hot and work just find without heated wands.

Do we really need a rejuvenated vagina? According to doctors, we don’t. Dr. Cheryl Iglesia, a board-certified gynecologist in Washington, told Healthline while vagina rejuvenation makes a lot of promises, the results still lack evidence.

The article goes on to warn that the “lack of data supporting the efficacy of these procedures and their potential complications, including infection, altered sensation, dyspareunia, adhesions, and scarring.”

If you are having sex with no pain, and would like a heated stick to be probed into your vagina for other reasons, have at it. But making your vagina go back to the days of yesteryear, when we didn’t even care what it looked like, just isn’t necessary — it’s not going to be the gateway to a hot sex life.

Our vaginas are amazingly resilient. They are perfect just the way they are. And honestly, if you are in your 40s, you shouldn’t be expected to have the coin purse of a teenager.


If I’m going to spend time and money rejuvenating something, it sure as hell isn’t going to be spent on the junction of my thighs. I’ll keep my withered pear, she works just fine, thank you very much.

But it does remind me, I need to book that massage I desperately need — that kind of rejuvenation will get me in the mood faster than a vagina that looks like a supple piece of fragile fruit.
