Intimate Skin Care After Menopause

By Donna Raheb –

You may have noticed that the older you get, the drier your skin becomes. As women age their skin suffers a slowdown in oil production and cell turnover, especially after menopause. To keep dry skin in the best condition possible, it’s important to use proper cleansers that won’t deplete skin of moisture and to exfoliate on a weekly basis. Most importantly, you’ll need to keep skin moisturized throughout the day.

The delicate skin of the internal and external vaginal area is especially sensitive, and it may be even more susceptible to dryness and irritation than other areas of the body. Caring for mature intimate skin is unique. Moisturizers intended for the face or body can cause redness, irritation and discomfort when applied to this delicate area. Ronald D. Blatt M.D., F.A.C.O.G formulated products especially for the vagina and surrounding area.

Dr. Blatt has been an expert in the field of women’s health for over 30 years. Board-certified gynecologist, expert surgeon and compassionate physician, Dr. Blatt’s driving imperative is to treat matters of vaginal health and intimate skin care with knowledge, awareness and respect. He has built one of the world’s top health care practices in New York City, where he is Chief Surgeon and Medical Director of the Manhattan Center for Vaginal Surgery and the Manhattan Centers for Women’s Health.

Dr. Blatt’s focus is, and has always been, on the well-being of “the total woman”. It was this devotion that led to his creation of the PrivateRX Intimate Skin Care line, a line of skincare products with medical benefits specifically formulated for a mature woman’s most private area.

The products in the line include Internal Vaginal Moisturizer, External Vaginal Moisturizer, Personal Lubricant and two products for waxing and shaving aftercare, Soothing Serum and Cooling Pads. The Internal Vaginal Moisturizer is a long-lasting super-moisturizing product to help reduce vaginal dryness for comfort and confidence. The External Vaginal Moisturizer is a skin treatment that moisturizes the external vaginal area to help alleviate dryness. Personal Vaginal Lubricant is the ultimate lubricant to safely enhance sexual pleasure and it also provides relief from vaginal dryness. For shaving and waxing, PrivateRX offers Cooling Pads, antioxidant cleansing wipes that help prevent bumps, irritation and ingrown hair caused by shaving or waxing and Soothing Serum, is an intense, super-moisturizing aftercare product to help prevent irritation and ingrown hairs.

I asked Dr. Blatt a few questions about the PrivateRx products.  Here I will share those questions and Dr. Blatt’s answers.

Question: How do PrivateRx products differ from other products on the market?

Dr. Blatt: “The PrivateRx intimate skin care line was not manufactured by a large chemical company or conceived by a marketing department, but carefully developed by myself, a practicing board-certified gynecologist and cosmetic vaginal surgeon, out of my sincere desire to help my patients. The products contain no damaging ingredients, and all provide anti-aging benefits which safely and effectively help firm, soothe, tighten and rehydrate delicate vaginal-area skin.”

Question: Do any of the PrivateRX products contain fragrance?

Dr. Blatt: “No, all PrivateRx products are fragrance free and hypoallergenic. It is important to know that the way most fragrance ingredients impart scent is through a volatile reaction, which almost always causes some degree of irritation and/or inflammation. Below the skin’s surface, irritating ingredients can cause collagen to break down, which gets in the way of the skin’s ability to fight environmental damage and hampers its ability to heal. Research has established that the fragrances added to skin care products are among the most common causes of allergic reactions.”

Question: Do any of the PrivateRx products contain estrogen or any other hormones?

Dr. Blatt: “No, all PrivateRx products are free of estrogen and other hormones. Recent studies have shown that excess amounts of hormones introduced into the body by various products can cause health risks.”

Question: How soon can women expect results from PrivateRx products?

Dr. Blatt: The results from PrivateRx products vary from product to product and woman to woman. For best results, use each product exactly as directed on the packaging.
