Jada Pinkett Smith claims she has the νagina of “a beautiful peach” after undergoing νaginal rejuvenation treatments to resolve her bladder problems.
The 46-year-old actress, who is married to Will Smith, revealed the news on a recent episode of her Facebook series Red Table Talk, during which she and mother, Adrienne Banfield-Jones, 64, visit the Vitality Institute of Agoura in Los Angeles, where Pinkett Smith had previously undergone treatment (Pinkett Smith’s 17-year-old daughter and co-host, Willow Smith, was not present).
“A lot of women focus on keeping [the νagina] healthy for sex and pleasing men,” Pinkett Smith says, to which her mom adds, “But you gotta do it for yourself.”
The pair, who admit that νaginal rejuvenation is a “sensitive topic” due to cultural shame surrounding age, met with owner Kelly Rainey, who explained that the five-year-old process is ideal for women who want to improve dryness, their cosmetic appearance, painful sex, and stress incontinence (a condition that causes a person to accidentally urinate with physical movement).
Jada and Gammy embark on a very personal journey to a clinic that specializes in vaginal rejuvenation. Gammy is skeptical of the newfangled technology, but Jada has a different point of view.

During the procedure, an instrument called the “UltraFemme 360″ is repeatedly inserted into the νagina. “It introduces heat, which stimulates cellular turnover, which makes you feel younger again,” Rainey told the mother and daughter about the radio-frequency process. “And it gets tighter and nicer and functions like it did when we were back in our 20s.”
An additional attachment is also worked around the labia and the urethra, “which does make the appearance sometimes tighter and helps with stress incontinence and you become more supple,” says Rainey. “So it’s easier to have sex again.” According to the Vitality Institute’s website, the treatment works to “stimulate your body’s healing response, cell regeneration, collagen synthesis, and blood supply.”
It apparently worked for Pinkett Smith, who proclaimed, “My yoni is like a 16-year-old — I’m not kidding. It looks like a little beautiful peach.”
Rainey adds that the procure itself is pleasurable, saying, “Two out of 10 women do have a happy time while they’re getting the treatment. That’s what the literature told us.”
Rainey did not return Yahoo Lifestyle’s request for comment. However, according to Alyssa Dweck, MD, a New York-based ob-gyn and author of The Complete A to Z for Your V, νaginal rejuvenation is a growing field that may offer benefits to women struggling with the aforementioned issues.
“The most popular treatment is called the MonaLisa Touch — the gold standard — which increases collagen formation in the νagina using a CO2 laser,” she tells Yahoo Lifestyle. “A less common technique uses radio frequency to achieve the same results.”
Dweck cautions that despite the emerging interest in νaginal rejuvenation, some methods have only been cleared, but not approved, by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (which means they’re not covered by health insurance), nor are they universally accepted by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the North American Menopause Society. Still, some urologists and even dermatologists are learning to perform the treatments.
“The treatment generally needs more research,” adds Dweck, who does not perform the procedure. “But it sounds promising.”
