Why “Brotox” Remains as Popular as Ever


Compared to women, men have not always been thought of as greatly concerned about their looks, but if the number of straight American men getting Botox injections is any indication, that gap of perception between men and women appears to be closing.  Last year alone, “Brotox” has seen an unprecedented jump of 310% since 2000, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

Male patients of today are much more open about their appearance-related concerns, especially because the stigma for wanting to get cheek fillers from an aesthetic laser clinic when you are not wearing a skirt is fast disappearing; hence, the rise of the metrosexual male in the aughts (a dapper David Beckham), and now a decade later, the spornosexual spin-off (a ripped David Beckham).

Brotox and the Importance of Appearance in the Workplace

Getting dermal fillers or just going to aesthetic clinics in Singapore for any touch-up job has become quite commonplace, with every one of just about any age getting something done. Men are no longer regarded as vain when they engage the services of a skin care specialist and want to improve something cosmetically, because it makes them feel good or puts them in a better bargaining position when it comes to business or personal competitions.

With the economy still uneven and competition for jobs still stiff, people have become open to the reality that looking good – and not just working well – ups their points in almost all facets of their lives.

Appearance has always been important, no matter how we invoke the inner beauty mantra, especially in businesses that rely on their frontliners to convey their brand. Airline crew, for example, would want to convey an image of vitality. (After all, who would want to fly with an ageing airline?) Understandably, the airline would prefer to hire young-looking candidates over older-looking ones.

Sales people have always been told to put their best foot – and biggest grins – forward because doing so attracts customers. Even people in the backroom could benefit from a youthful and fresh appearance when they do receive the dreaded pink slip: An attractive and youthful look gives them an edge in finding a new job.

Non-Surgical Procedure with Instantaneous Results and Zero Downtime

skin-care-specialistInjectables like Botox also do not come with costs, risks, preparation and downtime often associated with surgery. A dab of topical anesthetic cream is all it takes to prepare the area for injection, and all it takes is 10 minutes for the treatment to be completed. Botox irons out unwelcome wrinkles especially that very visible “angry 11,” along with the horizontal lines on the forehead, frown and smile lines.

Botox can also lift eyebrows to erase that tired look, and can also be used to correct lines around the lips and neck. In medical clinic in Singapore, Botox is injected along the angles of the jaw into the muscles used for chewing to slim the face.

Many laser clinic Singapore patients experience minimal or no pain at all during the treatment, and no downtime afterwards – a huge advantage if you want to look your best for a dinner date.

Nobody would want to look like they had some work done on their face (what with the popularity of “all-natural” labels in almost everything), and Botox achieves this more natural and youthful look without giving the procedure away. The results are instantaneous and last up to 3-6 months, with the effectiveness lasting longer after repeated treatments.

CoolSculpting Procedure US FDA-cleared for Double Chin


ZELTIQ®, the company behind the safe and effective fat freezing procedure, CoolSculpting, has successfully expanded the clearance from the U.S. FDA by introducing a new applicator called CoolMini™ which is designed to treat smaller pockets of fat in the chin area more commonly known as the double chin.

The latest Press Release from ZELTIQ®: (Credits to ZELTIQ®, http://bit.ly/1KTBysz)


Introduction of New CoolMini™ Applicator Uniquely Designed to Non-Invasively Treat Smaller Pockets of Fat

PLEASANTON, Calif. (September 23, 2015) – ZELTIQ® Aesthetics, Inc. (Nasdaq: ZLTQ), a medical technology company focused on developing and commercializing products utilizing its proprietary controlled-cooling technology, today announced that it received an expanded clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) paving the way for introduction of the new, CoolMini™ applicator, which is designed to treat smaller pockets of fat, including the submental, or chin fat area, more commonly referred to as the double chin. The CoolSculpting® procedure has demonstrated in over 50 published clinical articles and 4,000 clinical trial patients to non-invasively and consistently reduce unwanted fat and the procedure has been successfully used in over two million treatments to date.

“Through our continued introduction of new applicators together with expanded clearances from the FDA, we are successfully addressing additional problem areas for our customers. The CoolMini applicator will enable our CoolSculpting practices to treat small volume areas of unwanted fat with little, to no downtime and with a similar level of efficacy as our other applicators,” said Mark Foley, President and Chief Executive Officer of ZELTIQ.

“I believe our new CoolMini applicator will provide a truly compelling alternative to other popular devices and methods currently used to treat and contour the neck, like liposuction. I have been particularly pleased with the very positive feedback we are receiving from both physicians and patients based on our limited European launch.”

The new CoolMini applicator is uniquely designed for small volume areas of fat. The applicator’s size, shape and curvature is designed to comfortably fit these small, problem areas. Patients may see results as early as 3 weeks, with the most dramatic results generally observed 1-3 months following treatment.

“When utilizing the CoolMini applicator, I can generally achieve optimal results in one or two treatments,” said Brian Zelickson, M.D., Director of Zel Skin & Laser Specialists in Edina, Minnesota. “Moreover, since the CoolSculpting procedure is entirely non-invasive, my patients can typically resume normal activities immediately after treatment.”

The accumulation of fat under the chin can be a result of lifestyle, age or genetic factors and – unlike other common problem areas of the body – it cannot be hidden or disguised with clothing. Data from a 2014 study conducted by The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) showed that approximately 68 percent of people were concerned with chin and neck fat; this number increased eight percent from the previous year. Additionally, a recent study conducted in the United States revealed that 22.4 million people are interested in seeking non-invasive fat reduction solutions.

The FDA clearance is based on data from a U.S. pivotal clinical trial involving 60 male and female patients, ranging in age from 22 to 65 years. In the trial, patients received 1-2 treatments in the area under the chin, each six weeks apart resulting in an average of 20% fat reduction, which is in line with results achieved with other CoolSculpting applicators. Additionally, no significant adverse events were observed and patients experienced little to no discomfort or downtime.
“The outcomes I have observed using the CoolMini applicator to treat the sub-mental area have been extremely positive and this treatment has also demonstrated very high levels of patient satisfaction,” said Suzanne Kilmer, M.D., Founding Director of the Laser and Skin Surgery Center of Northern California in Sacramento.

“The CoolSculpting procedure’s predictable results, non-invasive technology, comfort, lack of downtime and affordable pricing make it a very attractive treatment option for patients looking to eliminate unwanted fat.”

Over 500 CoolMini treatments have been performed to date as a result of pilot clinical work, clinical trials and our controlled European launch that commenced in June. The results, achieved in as little as 1-2 office visits, have been very encouraging with very high patient satisfaction and the same level of efficacy achieved with other CoolSculpting applicators.
The unique CoolSculpting procedure was developed by Harvard scientists and is based on the proprietary science of Cryolipolysis®, demonstrating that when fat cells are exposed to extreme cold, they die and are eliminated naturally from the body.

Only the CoolSculpting procedure selectively targets (freezes) the fat cells. Fat cells treated and eliminated by the procedure are gone for good, and patients can expect long-lasting results. Every patient is unique, so patients are encouraged to talk to their CoolSculpting provider about a customized treatment plan as part of the initial consultation.

Additional treatments in the same or multiple areas may enhance the desired aesthetic effect.
The CoolSculpting procedure is available through an elite network of CoolSculpting Centers worldwide. Dermatologists, plastic surgeons and leading aesthetic specialists that offer

About the CoolSculpting® Procedure
The CoolSculpting procedure is a non-surgical, clinically proven procedure that selectively reduces unwanted fat using a patented cooling technology. The CoolSculpting procedure is cleared by the FDA for cold-assisted lipolysis (breakdown of fat) of the submental area, thigh, abdomen, and flank, or “love handles” in individuals with a Body Mass Index of 30 or less. The device is intended to affect the appearance of visible fat bulges in the submental area, thigh abdomen and flank.

The CoolSculpting procedure works by gently cooling targeted fat cells in the body to induce a natural, controlled elimination of fat cells without affecting surrounding tissue, and the treated fat cells are gone for good. Millions of CoolSculpting treatments have been performed by nearly 4,000 CoolSculpting systems in over 70 countries. Market research indicates a 93% customer satisfaction rate with the CoolSculpting procedure. The CoolSculpting procedure is available through an elite network of CoolSculpting Center worldwide. 

About ZELTIQ® Aesthetics, Inc.
ZELTIQ Aesthetics, Inc. is a medical technology company focused on developing and commercializing products utilizing its proprietary controlled-cooling technology platform. ZELTIQ’s first commercial product, the CoolSculpting system, is designed to selectively reduce unwanted fat that may not respond to diet or exercise. The CoolSculpting procedure is based on the scientific principle that fat cells are more sensitive to cold than the overlying skin and surrounding tissues. It utilizes patented technology of precisely controlled cooling to reduce the temperature of fat cells in the treated area, which is intended to cause fat cell elimination through a natural biological process known as apoptosis. ZELTIQ developed the CoolSculpting procedure to safely, noticeably, and measurably reduce the fat layer.

4 Major Symptoms of Sexual Dysfunction

A woman’s sexual response involves a complex interplay of her emotions, beliefs, experiences, relationships, lifestyle and physiology (such as her physical well-being and vaginal health). But unlike erectile dysfunction among men which is widely understood in medical circles, female sexual dysfunction is a poorly researched issue and even considered a contested diagnostic. As a result, many women are hesitant to start a conversation with their doctors for fear of being told that her sexual problems are all in her head.

A step in the right direction would be to list down the symptoms of dysfunction that experts have identified so women and their doctors have a common ground to start the conversation. If you feel any one or a combination of symptoms such as discussed below, you may need further evaluation by a trained health practitioner.

Lack of enthusiasm for sex

4 Major Symptoms of Sexual Dysfunction

Low sexual desire is often the most common indicator of sexual dysfunction (not just among women but among men, too). The causes can range from being bored in a relationship, hormonal changes, stress at home and at work, medications, depression, and changes in a woman’s vagina itself. Lack of lubrication due to menopause or vaginal laxity due to natural childbirth can all be contributors to a woman’s lack of interest in sex.

The good news is that there are non-invasive and effective treatments available today to address these concerns. Vaginal laxity, for example, can be treated with non-surgical vaginal tightening procedure called Viveve that’s currently very popular in laser clinics in Singapore. This procedure uses a treatment tip that is inserted just behind the vaginal opening so radio frequency energy can be delivered to vaginal tissues and stimulate production of collagen.

Pain during intercourse

Sexual intercourse is a naturally pleasurable activity, so any pain associated with it should be investigated. Sexual pain can be caused by various problems such as ovarian cysts, a pelvic mass, endometriosis (or the development of uterine-lining tissue outside the uterus), vaginitis, or scar tissue from surgery.

Difficulty in achieving or maintaining arousal

A woman may have raging sexual desire, but both her mind and body may be actively preventing her from getting turned on. One of the main culprits is anxiety, or a woman’s inability to turn off her worries outside the bedroom, bringing to bed all her fears and insecurities that prevent her from focusing on the stimulation she receives.

One such worry is brought about by vaginal laxity. As a loose vagina has no sufficient tone to grip the penis during intercourse, women who have developed vaginal looseness report that reduced sensation contributes to “performance anxiety.” For these women, vaginal tightening without surgery may just be what they need to achieve and maintain arousal. Aesthetic clinic Singapore patients report improvement in vaginal tone 30 to 90 days after receiving Viveve treatment, so it might be well worth your time and effort to look into this painless, zero downtime lunchtime treatment if you have vaginal laxity problems.

Another reason for failure to get aroused can be lack of vaginal lubrication which usually happens to women of advanced age or women approaching menopause. Lubrication could help smooth things along, but the woman has to be receptive to the stimulation she gets (and the stimulation has to be adequate), or she’ll find it hard to climax. Recent studies also suggest that insufficient blood flow to the vagina and clitoris may contribute to arousal problems.


This is the medical term for a woman’s inability to orgasm all factors considered. This absence of sexual climax can be caused by cultural, religious and psychological impediments aside from the usual physiological problems. For example, in certain primitive cultures, women are discouraged from having sex for the sole purpose of enjoying it. Even modern cultures that have extremist beliefs instill in their women that there are certain “dirty things” between her thighs that need to be removed in a (highly controversial) practice known as infibulation (female genital mutilation).

As clitoris (which is removed in this procedure) is crucial to a woman’s enjoyment of sex, infibulation strips women of the opportunity to experience clitoral and blended (both vaginal and clitoral) orgasms. Reconstructive surgery in medical clinic in Singapore or in countries with advanced reproductive health facilities is necessary to restore a woman’s physiologic ability to climax. She has then to change how she views sex and rise above her cultural and traditional constraints if she were to fully enjoy the pleasures of sex.

Cutis Open House and Viveve Launch 2015

18th September 2015 – The Cutis Open House and the Viveve launch which includes a Women’ Sexual Health Seminar were successfully held in the Cutis’ new clinic at Pacific Plaza #08-07 Scotts Medical Center.



The Cutis Open House was the official launch of the new and improved Cutis clinic which was held together with the launch of the new treatment, Viveve®, as well as an important discussion about ‘Women’s Sexual Health’ and how it affects the overall well-being of a woman.



The ‘Women’s Sexual Health’ seminar was conducted by two expert physicians, Dr. Sylvia Ramirez and Dr. Bruce Allan together with Ms Patricia Scheller, CEO of Viveve® Inc.


Mr Scherz, Dr Ramirez, Ms Scheller and Dr Allan (from left to right)

Ms. Scheller is the CEO of Viveve® Inc and she has more than 25 years of executive marketing, business development and managerial experience within the health care industry.

Ms. Scheller started the discussion on how women’s sexual health is finally getting long-overdue attention after the 100 year gap of treatments and product development. Based on their clinical surveys of 525 OB/GYNs, vaginal laxity is reported as the number one physical change for women(2) after post-delivery and it is more prevalent than weight gain, stretch marks or urinary incontinence. And based in survey of 421 women, nearly half of respondents feel vaginal laxity is a concern post-childbirth(2).

(1) ISAPS International Survey on Aesthetic/Cosmetic Procedures Performed in 2014.
(2) Viveve Quantitative Consumer and Physician Research, conducted 2009.


She further explained that vaginal laxity is a common sexual concern wherein women suffer in silence. Ms. Scheller believes that Viveve® is the product that will finally address vaginal laxity. Viveve is also the only product that can provide a single-treatment, in a physician office within 30 minutes without surgery, anesthesia or any medication.

She also emphasized that although there a several products and treatments in the market that claims to treat vaginal laxity however, these are only focusing on the ‘cosmetic side’ or changing the outward appearance.

Viveve® is a company that is dedicated in treating women holistically wherein sexual function and sexual health is recognized as an integral part to a women’s well-being” according to Ms. Scheller.

The Viveve® procedure is not about changing the appearance but rejuvenating the tissue, building more confidence in women and improving their sexual relationships. And once a woman’s sexual health is properly addressed, it contributes to her psychological, physiologic and social health and intimacy.

And Ms. Scheller ended her presentation with, “Viveve® is a sensational solution for a very common sexual problem that women have.”


Ms Patricia Scheller and Dr Bruce Allan

Dr. Bruce Allan is one of Calgary and Canada’s most trusted Obstetrician Gynecologists. He is a licentitate of Medical Council of Canada and is both a staff surgeon and Chief of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the South Health Campus in Calgary.

Dr. Allan discussed ‘Improved Sexual Sensation Using Viveve® For The Treatment of Vaginal Laxity’. He shared that prior to Viveve® he was looking for a new treatment that will go beyond surgical or a non-invasive procedure that will also address issues that women have. And unexpectedly, Viveve® met all his expectations and even went beyond as it not only addressed the issue of laxity but it also it improved the sexual health of his patients.

Dr. Allan further shared that there are so many attention to men sexual health that women’s sexual health is left behind. Although women do not verbalize their sexual concern, it doesn’t mean it’s not out there especially the physical changes after childbirth. Vaginal laxity is a condition where childbirth results in overstretching and “loosening” of the vagina.

In a Viveve® procedure, the treatment tip is placed inside the vaginal opening immediately behind the hymenal ring avoiding the urethra. The Viveve® treatment tip is moved around the circumference of the vaginal opening delivering pulses of heat to the collagen fibers that are found in the underlying tissues while also cooling the surface. Just enough heat is delivered from the treatment tip to the underlying tissue to suddenly change the collagen while the coolant protects the surface.

Over the seven to 10 days following the procedure the treated tissue remains essentially the same however within approximately 30 days cells within the tissue activate and initial replacement of the subtly altered collagen occurs.

This restorative process continues from approximately day 30 to at least day 90. Over this time period, additional cells within the tissue activate and new collagen formation continues. The restored tissue shows increased collagen content without any damage to the tissue.

Viveve® is not only a treatment for a woman but a treatment for their relationship. Not having the same intimacy or sensation will have an indirect impact on the partner as well.

The benefit of Viveve® besides from being a non-surgical procedure is that that it provides long lasting results in sexual sensation after one treatment. Another benefit is that there is a natural renewal of collagen cushion as Viveve® applies the right amount of energy in the tissue under the vaginal wall that stimulates new collagen.


Dr. Allan also showed the positive outcomes in clinical trials. Before the treatment, the subjects felt the laxity and lower after childbirth. After their Viveve® treatment, the vaginal laxity score improved wherein the Viveve® System restored vaginal tightness to pre-childbirth levels.

Based from his patients, they felt the difference as there were more sensation, it felt tighter inside and their partners also felt the difference.

The presentations were followed by Q & A.

Dr. Ramirez, the Medical & Scientific Director of Cutis Medical Laser Clinics, was one of the panelist for the Q&A session.


Dr Sylvia, Ms Patricia and Dr Bruce (from left to right)

Dr Sylvia mentioned that Cutis Medical Laser Clinics’ goal is to make women feel good about themselves and sexual health is part of overall aesthetics which impacts our interior self – how you feel about your beauty. Thus, for her it was a natural fit to include the Viveve® System given the clinical studies supporting this procedure to be included in the list of their outstanding treatments.

Dr Sylvia further explained that Viveve® is more than physical tightening but also improving libido and sensuality of a woman. And although it is a treatment presented for women after childbirth it is also considered a treatment as a part of getting older because collagen decreases whether in the face or in the vaginal area. So even if the woman do not have children or if a women is sexually active, Viveve® is a procedure worth considering.

Dr Sylvia as Guest Speaker for the 3rd MSAM Conference 2015

Dr Sylvia Ramirez, the Medical & Scientific Director of Cutis Medical Laser Clinics, was one of the few invited international speakers for the 3rd Malaysian Society for Aesthetic Medicine (MSAM) Conference 2015 that was held on the 19th – 20th of September at Hilton Hotel in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia with the theme ‘Aesthetic with Confidence’.

Dr. Sylvia was scheduled to talk for two different sessions. First, was about the ‘Experience with Coolsculpting and the Financial Impact’ wherein she discussed about Cutis Medical Laser Clinics’ success in providing holistic body sculpting using the original CoolSculpting Fat Freezing Procedure.


CoolSculpting is a clinically proven, US FDA-approved non-invasive fat removal procedure that effectively targets, eliminates and freezes fat cells in specific areas of the patient’s body without harming the skin or other tissues. CoolSculpting permanently destroys fat cells using a safe and controlled cooling technology called Cryolipolysis.


Dr Sylvia discussing about the CoolSculpting Fat Freezing Procedure

Dr Sylvia’s second talk was about ‘BOTOX® & JUVÉDERM® : Does Evidence Matter?’ wherein she discussed clinical studies and evidence-based outcomes of the brand Botox®  and Juvederm® fillers in terms of patient satisfaction.

BOTOX® is a brand name for Botulinum Toxin, a non-surgical wrinkle treatment that is injected directly into the muscles to iron out unwanted wrinkles. It is most commonly used to treat forehead lines, frown lines in between the brows and wrinkles in the corners of the eyes. Botox is also known as the ‘instant wrinkle corrector’.


Dr Sylvia discussing the clinical studies and evidence-based outcomes of BOTOX® & JUVÉDERM®

On the other hand, JUVÉDERM® is widely known as a safe and effective dermal filler that works by retaining Hyaluronic Acid (HA), the natural substance in the skin. HA diminishes as a person age thus, resulting the skin to lose structure and forms lines and wrinkles. JUVÉDERM® filler is injected under the skin to fill the soft tissue of the dermis that diminishes the appearance of fine lines and facial folds instantly. The pain is very minimal as the treatment is done by applying numbing cream in the area before the injection.

Avoid Making Your Acne Worse With These 5 Useful Suggestions

acneAcne is the bane of adolescent existence, but adults who are prone to getting them and are not scrupulous with their hygiene find that acne is more than just a passing problem: If not adequately treated, acne can leave scars and deep pits that often require treatment from aesthetic laser clinic.

Prevention is always better than cure, but if you already have it, doing these 5 common-sense habits will prevent you from making your acne worse.

Avoid using harsh, abrasive products

Overscrubbing the face with abrasive products can only worsen acne as the irritation can cause more acne breakout. Instead, use an exfoliating brush or a gentle exfoliator so your pores are cleansed without being irritated. Facial redness from overscrubbing that does not resolve on its own requires consultation with an aesthetic clinic Singapore skin care specialist who may advise 3D Skin Rejuvenation procedures such as LimeLight Facial, Laser Genesis and Titan that not only banish redness but also improve age spots, large pores, fine lines, wrinkles and lax skin.

Apply acne medication on areas where pimples tend to occur

Naturally, we only dab acne medication on active pimples. We forget, however, to apply a thin layer over the entire area where pimples tend to occur. Especially when you are using a product containing benzoyl peroxide, it helps to spread this medication a bit for preventive care.

Keep hair away from your face

anceYour hair produces oil so when they touch your face, they make irritation worse, as grime and dust can collect in your hair and transfer them unto your skin. Plus, frequent contact with itch-inducing hair could only make things much worse. Tie your hair or cut it short when you’re having a breakout.

Never squeeze pimples

As tempting as it may look, avoid popping a pimple. Germs breed in your nails and fingers, so touching your face with your dirty hands will spread the infection, aggravating your pimples. Worse, when you pop a zit, you increase your chances of scarring. Use spot correction instead with acne medication.

Of course, when your pimples have gone past redemption using topical application, getting acne treatments in Singapore using resurfacing procedures such as Cutera Pearl may be in order. This US-FDA approved treatment popular in laser clinics in Singapore uses laser to gently remove a portion of the top layer of the skin, improving freckles, wrinkles, scars, and sun damage.

Clean your cell phone

In the same way that your hair transfers sebum to your face, your dirty cellphone also transfers oil and sweat back to your face. While that may not sound too gross, remember that in between calls, bacteria may have grown from your last cell phone use. So clean your phone as per manufacturer suggestion. If you find that tedious, use ear buds or make calls hands-free.

Healthy skin habits go a long way in ensuring that your body’s largest organ will do its job of protecting you from bacteria and the elements. After all, the skin is not just your first line of defense, but the image of you that you present to the world: Taking care of your face, above all, is well worth your investment in money, effort and time.

5 Tips on How to Open Up to Your Partner About Your Sexual Needs

A woman’s sexual health is essential to her overall physical and emotional well-being, but not many women are keen to admit to their partners that they are unfulfilled in this area. Discussing with your partner your sexual needs goes a long way in achieving sexual fulfilment and bringing your relationship closer together, and that discussion has to start somewhere.  When it comes to sex, there is plenty of ground to cover, but you can start with the following suggestions.

Initiate the conversation indirectly

non-surgical vaginal tightening procedure

If you are uncomfortable breaking the ice about your sexual needs, use a clinic pamphlet, a book or a movie to get past your shyness. That way, it won’t be too difficult to describe what it is that bothers you and how you want it addressed. If you are experiencing vaginal dryness or laxity, which can get in the way of a satisfying intercourse, an illustrative reading material can help explain the concept to your partner and open up to him solutions he may not be comfortable with. He may not realize that vaginal dryness due to menopause can easily be remedied by vaginal rings, or that vaginal laxity treatment such as Viveve can easily be had from an aesthetic laser clinic. With appropriate medical literature, you can better explain to your partner how Viveve uses patented, radio frequency technology to tighten the tissues around the vaginal opening, and what its outcome will be should you decide to avail of the treatment.

Talk about your physical and emotional changes

Weight gain, illness, and hormonal changes can all be factors that negatively affect a woman’s libido. Talk to your partner why you may not be enjoying sex as you used to, as he will likely not be aware, as in the case when changes are emotional (such as being under stress at work or feeling depressed, all of which are roadblocks to a satisfying climax). If you’ve had vaginal childbirths in the past and vaginal looseness keeps both of you from feeling satisfied, you can decide to find out together whether going to a laser clinic in Singapore for a vaginal tightening procedure works well given your circumstances.

Define your idea of romance

Romance sets the stage for intimacy, so it’s important that your expectations are the same as your partner’s. He may find it romantic to cook you dinner, while you wish he’d rather buy you a bouquet of flowers. By reconciling the differences in your idea of romance, you meet each other halfway and minimize frustration (which can quickly ruin your sexual desire).

Bridge the gap between differences in your sexual appetite

It’s not uncommon for one partner to crave for more sex while the other feels that a once-a-week action is enough. As couples age, their sexual needs also change, sometimes for the worse given the stresses of climbing the career ladder while raising children. Especially for mothers who have given birth naturally, vaginal laxity is a very real concern that affects her libido and her overall quality of life. Bridging the gap might mean a trip to a medical clinic in Singapore for a non-surgical vaginal tightening procedure that would help restore her sensation and in turn, her sexual appetite. It might also mean dividing the chores so each partner has enough time and energy left for sex. By coming up with possible solutions and compromises, the gap can be spanned so no one party is worse off than the other.

Reconcile your beliefs and expectations about sex

Women are often thought of as less sexual than men when they reach a certain age. But are you actually less sexual now in your 40s than when you were in your 20s, or is your feeling affected by the widespread belief that as women age, they become less interested in sex? You may be left frustrated for not getting enough attention because of his false assumption that you are no longer interested.

Super Omega 3
Helps reduce risk from heart disease
Reduce the risk of coronary heart disease There are several mechanisms attributed to fish oil’s beneficial effects. The latest government report cites the triglyceride-lowering effects of fish oil on reducing heart and blood vessel disorders. Another beneficial mechanism of fish oil is to protect healthy blood flow in arteries.

Osteoporosis, the bone-thinning disease that most commonly affects postmenopausal women, results from bones that have lost calcium and thickness.

You can getting your daily dose of calcium from milk and milk products like yogurt; fish with bones that are eaten, like canned salmon or sardines; broccoli; and juices and cereals that are fortified with calcium.

If you’re over 55 — and especially if you’re a woman — you’re likely to be at risk for osteoporosis, since 55% of people in this age group have low bone mass – a thinning of the bones.
