As we all have found out as we age, life can be difficult. Technology although good has made life more hectic, not to mention politics and just dealing with the day to day hassles of ordinary life. Quality of life, as well as good health is a necessary part of living. Whether it’s a well deserved vacation, putting children through school or just feeling better and having that special relationship with someone you love is really what is all about.
For the longest time women have found hormone replacement as they age to be a fearful undertaking. The problem was, and is a lack of understanding by the public and the medical community. Since the early 1980’s Premarin (Estrogen) was found to cause certain cancers in women. The problem was that the word estrogen was not defined. Estrogen is a class, women have 3 estrogens (men one). It is knowing and receiving the right combination, as well as progesterone and testosterone that make a huge difference. Remember your brain is the main focus (as well as bone and muscle health), that gives back quality to an aging life. Take short term memory and libido, both brain functions, the sex hormones, as well as a functioning thyroid give humans drive and vitality. For year’s doctors and patients were fooled into thinking antidepressants, anti anxiety drugs and sleeping pills made a difference. They are band aids only. The problem is simple aging.
Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy(BHRT) has for the last 15-20 years given women and men the vitality, clear thinking and sexual desire often forgotten over time. BHRT through pellet insertion gives a smooth transition to better health and quality of life. Most patients get a 4 month benefit before re-insertion. Hot flashes, insomnia and mood swings gently dissipate over 10-14 days. No peaks and valleys.
The other side of women’s health is totally mechanical. Hormone depletion, hysterectomy and vaginal deliveries lead to laxity, urinary stress incontinence, anorgasmia, painful intercourse and extreme dryness due to thinning of the vaginal mucosa (tissue). ThermiVa (by Thermi Aesthetics) has developed a proprietary technology, using radio-frequency waves to restore sexual well being and stop urinary incontinence and leakage. No more incontinence pads which add up monetarily. ThermiVa tightens, restores the anatomical G-spot to its functioning place and strengthens the pelvic floor muscles to restore urinary control. No more Kegel exercises that insurance companies want you to do with NO effect. Relationships improve for both parties because ThermiVa improves the vascular supply, thereby thickening naturally thin vaginal tissue. No more creams and gels that inhibit most relationships. Three treatments over 3 months with a yearly maintenance makes the difference, no pain no downtime.
Did you ever think you could get back what you once had? Remember, it’s a double edged sword. BHRT supplies needed brain and bodily functions for women and men. Drive, vitality and a good night’s sleep are important factors in healthily aging. Women can also fix the functional side of vaginal health as well as urinary issues to truly get back what time has taken away.
At Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics, we take care of the complete package. We are the first and longest user of ThermiVa and are Western New York’s only BHRT pellet facility.
So get your quality of life back at Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics, where we not only want you to look good, but feel good as well.
