Skincare and Menopause: Understanding the Causes and Solutions

Menopause marks a significant transition in a woman's life, bringing with it a host of changes that can impact confidence and self-esteem. Despite its inevitability, menopause remains a sensitive topic for many, often accompanied by physical changes that can be challenging to address. As aesthetic practitioners, understanding the causes and offering effective solutions is essential in helping women navigate this phase with grace and confidence.

Causes of Skin Ageing

Several factors contribute to the signs of skin ageing:

  • Internal Factors: These include age, sex, genetics, and hormonal balance. As women age, hormonal changes, particularly the reduction in oestrogen, play a crucial role in skin health.

  • External Factors: Sun exposure, pollution, pharmaceuticals, smoking, diet, and lifestyle choices all significantly influence the ageing process.

Physical Changes During Menopause

Menopause results in a decline in oestrogen levels, which directly affects the skin's elasticity and collagen production. The consequences include:

  • Reduced Collagen: This leads to a loss of plumpness and more pronounced wrinkles.

  • Increased Susceptibility to Creasing and Sagging: The skin becomes more prone to developing lines and sagging.

  • Thinner Skin: Volume loss in areas like the cheeks, lips, and jawline is common.

  • Hair Growth Issues: Many women experience thinner hair and even hair loss.

Aesthetic Solutions for Menopausal Changes

Fortunately, aesthetic medicine offers various treatments to address these concerns, helping women feel rejuvenated and confident. Some effective treatments include:

  • Dermal Fillers: These can restore lost volume in the cheeks, lips, and jawline, providing a more youthful appearance.

  • Skin Boosters: Products like Hydro and Hydromax rejuvenate the skin from within, boosting hydration and encouraging collagen and elastin production.

  • Advanced Skin Procedures: Chemical peels, polynucleotides and microneedling improve skin tone and texture, resulting in a smoother, more radiant complexion.

  • A specialist skincare assessment: provides a customized, informed, and professional approach to skincare, ensuring that your skin receives the best possible care.
