Genital rejuvenation includes both surgical and non-surgical procedures that are used to improve the functional aspects and/or enhance the aesthetics of the genitalia of both women and men.
Vaginal rejuvenation was first reported on in the medical literature in 2007, but it is only within the past decade that medical professionals and patients have shown an increased interest in this area. The term scrotal rejuvenation was only coined in 2018.
Rejuvenation of the genitalia may be offered for a variety of conditions, including hair-associated, morphology-associated, and vascular-associated changes to the genitals. As women and men gain an insight into the conditions that can be treated with genital rejuvenation procedures, it is estimated that the demand for vaginal and scrotal rejuvenation will rise. It is thought that genital rejuvenation may therefore become the next frontier in medical and cosmetic dermatology.
Atopic dermatitis is a chronic inflammatory skin disorder that is characterised by barrier disruption of the skin. A new cosmetic formulation on the market, called Dermacare, aims to enhance moisturisation and reinforce and repair the skin barrier.
