Not everyone grows old gracefully. Many of us go there kicking and screaming, unwilling to accept every line and wrinkle as a mark of distinction or treasured memory. But the change to our faces is only part of the story.

Some of us find that our ability to function as happy, healthy, sexually active women becomes impacted virtually overnight. As our bodies become estrogen depleted, we can experience vaginal dryness.

Just like not everyone wants to run out and schedule a facelift to tackle those lines and wrinkles, not everyone can or wants to try hormone replacement therapy to reverse some of the impacts aging has on our vaginal tissue.

Dryness may be the byproduct of a drop in estrogen levels, the signal that we’re done bearing children, but it can be extremely uncomfortable to manage on a day-to-day basis and make sex virtually unbearable.

Dana Bonezzi, MD, Kathleen Fearon, D.O., and Debra Fast, D.O., of Skin Care Solutions, are passionate about helping patients stay connected to their youthful exteriors—and interiors. When they saw a need within their patient population to help women navigate the often uncomfortable waters of menopause, they jumped at the chance to make a difference.

Vaginal Rejuvenation

“We purchased the MonaLisa Touch fractional CO2 laser to offer vaginal therapy to our female patients,” Dr. Bonezzi says.

“When estrogen levels decrease after menopause, many women suffer silently. Vaginal dryness can significantly impact their sexual lives, and some women experience urinary incontinence. The MonaLisa Touch laser addresses both of these concerns, so they can get their lives back.”

MonaLisa Touch laser therapy is safe and effective. Three treatments that take just five minutes each are required, and most patients feel a difference after just one treatment, with more pronounced improvement after treatments two and three. A once-a-year single treatment is recommended to maintain relief.

“MonaLisa Touch works by delivering virtually painless laser energy to the vaginal wall, stimulating a healing response,” Dr. Bonezzi says. “Because there are no hormones, it’s ideal for breast cancer survivors.”

“There is no reason to suffer in silence,” she adds. “This is a perfect solution for women who want to reclaim their sex lives and be more comfortable on a daily basis.”

MonaLisa Touch therapy is offered at both the Wooster and Green Skin Care Solutions offices and the cost is $1,500 for three non-surgical treatments.

Facial Rejuvenation
The Skin Care Solutions doctors have each achieved the distinction of “master injector.” They’ve helped thousands of patients turn back the hands of time without surgery, and the liquid facelift is among their more popular offerings.

“There is an art to it,” Dr. Bonezzi smiles. “A lot of places offer injectables, but few can achieve the results we can. Our goal is to make you look refreshed, not fake. We specialize in a natural look.”

The doctors have perfected their talents over the last decade plus, but it’s the ability to connect with their patients that really sets them apart.

“Our patients are people, not numbers,” she states. “We value the relationships we have with them.”

Medical grade skin care products include the Obagi and Image lines, and on-site Medical Aestheticians can help you determine which are best for your skin type.

Body Rejuvenation
As a leading provider of CoolSculpting, Skin Care Solutions has risen to the top of the fat-blasting movement. CoolSculpting, Dr. Bonezzi says, has played a major role in helping people eliminate unwanted fat, eclipsing the more expensive and invasive liposuction option.

“CoolSculpting is a real breakthrough,” she notes. “With the application of different-sized hand pieces, fat cells are frozen, they die, and they are naturally eliminated from the body—permanently.”

The procedure is ideal for those who have dieted and exercised bulk away but are left with stubborn, resistant fat that won’t disappear no matter how much time is spent at the gym.

And while it works on any area of the body, most people visit Skin Care Solutions to eliminate fat on their thighs, buttocks, abdomen, arms and under the chin.

Office Rejuvenation
Providing patients with a warm and welcoming atmosphere is paramount to the Skin Care Solutions team. The Wooster office recently underwent a soothing makeover to make it more inviting.

In place now are relaxing shades of gray and beige, with polished silver mixed in. A new product wall makes it easier to find the medical-grade skin care items you’re looking for, and the beverage station is a welcome amenity.
