Menopause is a natural stage in a woman’s life that marks the end of her reproductive years. While menopause brings about various changes in the body, one area that is affected is the skin. As hormonal levels shift and decrease, the skin undergoes several transformations that can change its appearance and health. In this article, we will explore the impact that menopause can have on the skin, including common skin concerns that arise during this stage.
The decline in estrogen levels during menopause can lead to a decrease in collagen and elastin production, resulting in thinner, drier, and less elastic skin. This can contribute to the development of fine lines & wrinkles, and sagging skin.
Fotona Facelift Laser: With the ability to regulate oil production, reduce inflammation, and kill acne-causing bacteria for a clearer and smoother complexion. Fotona Facelift Laser targets the underlying causes of acne, such as excess sebum production and bacterial overgrowth, by gently heating and stimulating the skin which also boosts collagen production to improve skin elasticity and reduce the appearance of acne scars. With its non-invasive and precise approach, Fotona Facelift Laser is an effective option for managing acne breakouts and achieving healthier and more radiant skin during menopause.
As hormonal levels fluctuate, the skin’s ability to retain moisture diminishes. This can lead to increased dryness and a dull complexion. Adequate hydration becomes even more crucial during menopause to maintain skin health.
Rejuran Healer: With its unique formulation of polynucleotide (PN) derived from salmon DNA, Rejuran Healer has the ability to attract and retain moisture within the skin when injected into the dermal layers to boost the skin’s ability to retain water, leading to enhanced hydration levels and a revitalized appearance. This increased hydration not only helps to combat dryness and dullness but also promotes a plump, supple, and radiant complexion. By replenishing the skin’s moisture barrier, Rejuran Healer can be a valuable asset in maintaining optimal skin health during the menopausal period.
Reduced Oil Production
The sebaceous glands produce less oil during menopause, leading to a decrease in natural lubrication and result in dry and itchy skin, as well as an increased risk of irritation and inflammation.
Profhilo: With a unique blend of hyaluronic acid, Profhilo is an injectable treatment that can stimulate the skin’s oil production and acts as a bio-remodeling agent, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin in the skin that are essential proteins for the skin’s structure and firmness. This enhances its ability to retain moisture, improving hydration and a more balanced complexion. With its hydrating and rejuvenating properties, Profhilo can be a valuable treatment option for those experiencing dry skin during menopause, helping to restore a healthy and radiant appearance.
Hormonal fluctuations can trigger an overproduction of melanin where dark spots and uneven skin tone starts showing on areas that are commonly exposed to the sun, also known as hyperpigmentation.
Pico Laser: With ultra-short pulses of laser energy delivered, Pico Laser targets and breaks down excessive melanin, the pigment responsible for dark spots. This process stimulates the body’s natural healing response, activating the skin to eliminate the pigmented cells gradually to reduce hyperpigmentations, revealing a more even and radiant complexion. With the power of Pico Laser, you can restore a youthful and even-toned complexion, enhancing your confidence and embracing the beauty of your skin.
Acne & Breakout
Hormonal fluctuations can also contribute to the development of acne or exacerbate existing acne conditions as increased oil production and clogged pores are common culprits.
Carbon Laser Peel: With the carbon-based lotion used in the procedure that acts as a photo-enhancer, Carbon Laser Peel is known to control acne breakouts as the laser energy penetrates deep into the pores. The laser targets and destroys the bacteria responsible for acne, reduces excess oil production, and exfoliates the skin’s surface. Additionally, the heat generated by the laser stimulates collagen production, promoting skin healing and minimizing the appearance of acne scars. Say goodbye to acne breakouts and hello to a renewed complexion with the Carbon Laser Peel.
In conclusion, menopause creates changes to the skin due to hormonal fluctuations and decreased estrogen levels, but it is important to remember that menopause is a natural phase of life, and while it may have an impact on the skin, there are effective ways to manage and mitigate these effects. By taking proactive steps to care for the skin during menopause, it is possible to maintain a healthy, radiant complexion and embrace the natural beauty that comes with this new phase of life.
