Nowadays, cosmetic procedures can be quick and easy to perform, and yet have long lasting and significant impacts on the health and confidence of patients. There has been significant developments and improvements in how cosmetic procedures have helped patients over the years.

Yet still a taboo topic, one of the most common women’s issues is menopause. Menopause is not a disease, but it is a physiological phenomenon encountered by all women. From an etymological point of view, the term “menopause” originates in Greek (menos = hemorrhage, pause = end) defining the end of menstruation. From a physiological point of view, menopause is characterized by a permanent and irreversible deficiency of estrogenic hormones. The World Health Organization establishes a menopausal diagnosis after at least 12 months of amenorrhea (lack of menstruation).

Menopause defines an entire biological stage in woman’s life, marked by the decline of genital functions (exhaustion of the ovarian reserve) and during which it passes from the stage of reproduction to that of senescence.

Menopause tends to happen in women between 40 and 55 years. The average age of menopause is 49 years. When it occurs before the age of 40, menopause can be considered early, and after 55 years, late. Following the method of installation, menopause may be natural or artificial (after surgery). Menopause is not an acute physiological event and includes several distinct periods:

One of the menopause’s main symptoms is urinary incontinence due to the decrease in estrogen hormone levels after menopause. Luckily, there is no need to suffer due to this annoying side effect of menopause, since there are so many treatments available. For example, Academy Laser Clinics offers innovative non-surgical and minimally invasive treatments to strengthen and restore the healthy functioning of vaginal and urethral tissue to support urinary control, including the clinically proven MonaLisa Touch laser. This amazing tool is quick and comfortable, and it’s a walk in/walk out the procedure that can successfully treat a range of vulvo-vaginal and urinary incontinence symptoms. MonaLisa Touch works by stimulating the body’s regenerative processes to create more hydrated and healthy cells and to improve the blood supply within the vaginal walls.

While aging, men have their issues and insecurities as well. Erectile dysfunction, sometimes called impotence, refers to a man’s inability to maintain an erection sufficient time to be satisfied with sexual intercourse. It does not refer to lack of sexual interest or desire, or occasional difficulties to achieve or maintain an erection that can affect all men in certain periods of their life.

Erectile dysfunction can occur at any age, but it is more common in the elderly, who often have other health problems or take medication that can interfere with normal erectile function. Erectile dysfunction treatment in the elderly can be as effective as for younger men.

Doctors prefer to use the term erectile dysfunction instead of impotence. Sexual functioning of a man involves more than the erection, and the term impotence often has negative and shameful implications. As many as half of all men aged between 40 and 65 years will suffer from some level of erectile dysfunction at different stages in their lives. This is a very common condition and apart from the inevitable aging of penile tissue, there are other factors that can trigger impotence or erectile dysfunction symptoms at a younger age.  These include illness such as diabetes, injury or surgery, drug side-effects, and smoking.

To treat erectile dysfunction, CALIBRE Clinic has developed the PRP Procedure, which is a clinical assessment and medical PRP injection program aimed to regenerate the penile tissue and allow men to enjoy long-term healthy erectile function.

The PRP Procedure only uses substances already naturally found in the body, namely concentrated blood platelets and growth factors. These substances are used to trigger repair and regeneration of tissue and vessels in the penis. This leads to enhanced blood flow and nerve sensitivity and so helps the patient to achieve and maintain a normal healthy erection. Since the amazing PRP Procedure stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, another benefit is the rejuvenation of the penis’ skin.

There are different extraction methods for PRP, but CALIBRE Clinic uses a system called EmCyte PurePRPII, which is the most advanced and highly concentrated extraction system available. PRP Procedure makes an excellent complimentary treatment to CALIBRE Clinic’s male enlargement procedure, and you can enjoy its benefits without any added side effects.

Another physical flaw that happens with aging is the excess fat accumulated under the chin, also known as double chin, and most often cannot be solved simply by a simple exercise.

Instead of opting for a facial lifting, men and women may prefer  liposuction because it presents fewer complications, scars and allows a faster postoperative recovery. In addition, the liposuction procedure leaves a more natural look than a facial lifting. The areas from which fat is extracted are generally: the mandible area and the place under the chin. Regardless of age, excess fat under the chin creates an aging appearance.

Usually, genetic inheritance leaves its mark, so diet and exercise can only help up to a certain point. However, there are easy ways to get rid of this excess fat and enjoy a young face and neck without feeling self-aware of this flaw all the time.

Academy Face and Body offers a revolutionary treatment to reduce or remove your double chin, without the need for surgery. Their procedure involves a synthesized form of deoxycholic acid (a substance found naturally in our bodies and is used to help break down fat in food) which is injected and breaks down the targeted fat cells under the skin resulting in a more contoured and refined neck and jawline. There’s no Surgery, no scarring and no need to spend hours in a clinic waiting or weeks for post-surgery recovery. The end results? Just a simple injection that can reduce the appearance of your double chin, leaving you feeling more confident in no-tim at all.
