Inserted vaginally, the vFit uses red light therapy, comfortable heat, and sonic technology. The vFit has six UV-free LED red lights that safely and effectively stimulate tissues. For decades, research has shown that light in a narrow band of red and near infrared can safely produce health benefits. Light energy is used in numerous health applications, including wound healing, reduction of pain, wrinkle reduction, and now intimate wellness. The device is 9.5 inches or 24 centimeters long.
In addition to the vFit LEDs, gentle heat warms vaginal tissues to encourage blood flow, which in turn helps with hydration by stimulating natural lubrication. The heat also increases the benefit of the LED lights. Finally, the sonic technology offers six vibration modes for customization to stimulate the muscles of the pelvic floor. Purchase Joylux Photonic Gel to use with the vFit Device.
While individual results may vary, after a 60-day study, 95 percent of women felt improved vaginal wellness, and 89 percent experienced increased confidence and sensation. The vFit has been receiving mostly four- and five-star reviews from both women and their partners.

It’s awkward to talk about weight. Nearly every woman I know is hyperaware, and perhaps hyper self-conscious, of her current and wished-for state. Approaching and following menopause, we women tend to gain weight even if we maintain our diet and exercise regimens; three to thirty pounds gained is the typical range, usually at a rate of one to five pounds a year.
