What is Vaginal Rejuvenation?
Vaginal rejuvenation is a broad term for vaginal corrective treatments. These procedures can be done for Aesthetic or Functional reasons including age-related problems, such as lack of vaginal tightness, vaginal atrophy and urinary incontinence. It covers essentially anything that changes or alters the vaginal anatomy. AQ Skin Solutions provides a nonsurgical, non-invasive solution to these problems by means of introducing Human Growth Factor to the area.
When this is used in the vagina, the goal is to improve elasticity, soothe irritation, relieve vaginal dryness, form new blood vessels, tightness, lubrication and enhance female sexual arousal and intercourse.

Vaginal Rejuvenation System
Despite the high number of women experiencing symptoms related to vaginal dryness, it is still a silent condition that many women feel embarrassed to share with their partners, friends, and even doctors. Vaginal dryness is a common symptom experienced during the premenopausal and postmenopausal years. Although inadequate vaginal lubrication can occur at any age, vaginal dryness is a hallmark sign of vaginal atrophy (atrophic vaginitis) – the thinning and inflammation of the vaginal wall due to a decline in estrogen. Along with vaginal dryness, women may also experience itching and stinging around the vaginal opening, and in the lower third of the vagina.
AQ Vaginal Rejuvenation System (VRS) is a hormone-free system that aims to increase vaginal cell renewal and rejuvenation. Designed to combat vaginal dryness and firm the vaginal walls, AQ Vaginal Rejuvenation System (VRS) uses patented growth factor technology to help increase lubrication, improve elasticity, and potentially enhance arousal.
Directions will be explained to you by your AQ Certified doctor or somatologist. Usage is in the comfort of your own home.
Frequently asked questions:
Why do women lose vaginal lubrication?
With age, hormonal changes or radiation treatment for cancer, patients may notice a loss of vaginal lubrication (break down of the vaginal walls) and can result in painful intercourse.
Can vaginal lubrication be improved with the VRS treatment?
The improvement is the result of rebuilding of the vaginal walls thus improved blood flow.
What should I expect?
Patients should be vigilant with their homecare product usage. The result is definitely effected by patient compliance.
Will I notice results right away?
Stimulation of the correct skin structures and production of proteins might take time. Give yourself 2 -4 weeks.
What should I expect during a consultation for vaginal rejuvenation?
Before embarking on any nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation treatment, establish your goals and review them at the time of your consultation. The Intimate GFIT treatments are performed by a nurse or physician’s assistant, but it’s important to choose the practice of a certified AQ medical doctor. Sometimes nonsurgical options are inadequate to deliver results and surgery may be warranted.
During your vaginal rejuvenation consultation be prepared to discuss:
· Your treatment goals
· Medical conditions, drug allergies and medical treatments
· Current medications, vitamins, herbal supplements, alcohol, tobacco and drug use
· Previous treatments and/or surgeries
· Evaluate your general health status and any pre-existing health conditions or risk factors
· Discuss your options
· Recommend a course of treatment
· Discuss likely outcomes of vaginal rejuvenation
· It’s very important to understand all aspects of your vaginal rejuvenation usage. It’s natural to feel some anxiety, whether it’s excitement for your anticipated new functionality or a bit of stress. Don’t be shy about discussing these feelings with your doctor.
