Gone are the days when middle-age and older patients dominated demand for aesthetic procedures. Today’s thriving aesthetic practices are multigenerational. And, thanks to social media and other influences, aesthetic industry revenue is driven by the desires of millennials and even younger patients wanting to not only tweak their looks, but also prevent visible aging.

As women grow older, the effects of childbirth and menopausal issues can lead to vaginal laxity, urine leakage, difficulty achieving orgasms and dryness. These and other gynecological health concerns often combine with the normal aging process to produce a range of emotional and physical challenges for women. Plus, medical and aesthetic problems in this area have traditionally involved some kind of a surgical procedure, with the associated discomfort and downtime.
Aesthetic providers should consider discussing sexual health with their 65-and-older patients, according to a recent poll. More than three-quarters of older U.S. adults think sex is important for romantic relationships at any age.
