Sponsored Post: So, what’s a girl to do when their lady parts just aren't as perfect as they used to be? Go see Dr. Biringer Kaur of Healing Touch Medical in Ridgewood. With nearly three decades of experience as an internist, Dr. Kaur specializes in obesity and aesthetic medicines and has become an expert in a revolutionary treatment called ThermiVa Vaginal Rejuvenation. This painless (think hot stone massage) treatment for down there takes only 40 minutes and has been shown to improve muscle tone, vaginal dryness, leaking, and – bonus! -- the treatment can increase clitoral sensitivity, making it easier to achieve orgasm- and we're just gonna stop right there. (Contact Dr. Kaur to find out if ThermiVa is right for you. Healing Touch Medical, Bergen Medical Center, 1 W. Ridgewood Avenue, Suite 108, Paramus,  201.873.7007)
