The Menopause And Your Skin
Skin Treatments for Menopausal Skin at Suzanne’s Beauty Salon in Coventry
We really are experts when it comes to your skin so if you’re going through the menopause, book in for a skin consultation so we can assess your needs and give you happier, healthier skin!
The hormonal changes that occur during the menopause tend to change your skin’s physiology. The slow down in ovarian activity, a decrease in B-Estradiol levels and lower oestrogen and progesterone production can all increase your skin’s ageing process.
But do not despair. Help is at hand and we can help to improve the look and feel of your skin and body with our high quality and effective skin & beauty treatments at Suzanne’s Hair & Beauty salon in Coventry.
While we won’t depress you with all of the possible side effects of ‘the change’, here are some of the main symptoms you may be experiencing, and what we can do to help!
Oily Skin During Menopause
As oestrogen levels decrease, testosterone stimulates the sebaceous glands which produces more sebum. This can result in oily skin and spots or acne.
Just one of our anti-acne treatments comes in the form of Microdermabrasion. This is a safe, non-surgical skin resurfacing treatment that will leave your skin looking and feeling younger, clearer and smoother. Or try a Dermalogica BioSurface Peel which is great for acne breakouts.
Excess Facial Hair Caused By The Menopause
Your hormonal changes mean that the testosterone in your body can be revealed so many women develop extra facial hair. If you find unwanted hairs appearing on your face (usually around the chin or upper lip), why not invest in some laser hair removal at Suzanne’s Hair & Beauty in Coventry? We can permanently remove excess hair from most areas of the face and body using the Lynton Lumina 585 advance IPL (intense pulsed light) hair removal.
Sagging Skin & Wrinkles During The Menopause
Oestrogens stimulate fat deposits and when the level of oestrogen drops during menopause, this leads to fat being redistributed – usually over the abdomen, thighs and buttocks. Your skin can become saggier and more wrinkled as your skin loses its mobility.
We can improve the appearance of your skin by using the CACI Non Surgical Facelift. CACI works to restore and redefine facial muscles, reducing lines and wrinkles while tightening and toning sagging muscles. It uses tiny micro-current electrical impulses to stimulate the face’s muscles, giving a lifted and more toned appearance.
Age Spots & Skin Pigmentation Increases In Menopausal Women
Your falling levels of oestrogen are also to blame for making your skin more prone to skin damage from the sun and for the increase in brown age spots. Generally these age spots pose no health risk, however they can be unsightly and create a patchy, less youthful appearance.
Freckling and age spots can be successfully lightened or removed using safe and effective Lynton Lumina 585 advance Intense Pulse Light (IPL) treatments at Suzanne’s Hair & Beauty Clinic.
