Possible to refinish / restore vinyl tile?

I've got one room with older 12x12 solid vinyl tile. After moving some stuff around I see discolouration from fading & some stains.

Is it possible to refinish the surface?
If it was hardwood, you could simply sand the surface and refinish. Is there anything similar that can be done for vinyl. I don't think that simply using a wax stripper would be enough.

Strip and rewax. If that doesn’t fix it, you’ll have to replace them.
The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten....

Thanks.
I was trying to decide if it was worth bringing in one of those commercial floor units with the HD black pads for stripping.
