The Link Between Menopause and Skin Changes

What are the most common skin changes during menopause?

Menopause is a natural biological process that marks the end of a woman’s reproductive years. During this time, hormonal changes can cause a variety of symptoms, including hot flashes, night sweats, and mood swings. However, many women are not aware that menopause can also lead to changes in their skin.

In this blog, we will explore the link between menopause and skin changes, including the most common skin concerns women may face during this time, and discuss how aesthetic treatments can help combat these changes.

As women age, the production of oestrogen and collagen decreases, resulting in changes to the skin. Collagen is a protein that provides structure and elasticity to the skin, and oestrogen helps to regulate collagen production. When oestrogen levels drop, collagen production decreases, resulting in changes to the skin’s texture and tone.

The most common skin changes that occur during menopause include:

Dryness: As oestrogen levels decline, the skin can become dry, itchy, and more sensitive. This is because oestrogen helps to maintain the skin’s moisture barrier, and without it, the skin can lose moisture more easily.

Wrinkles: As collagen production decreases, the skin may become less elastic, leading to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Age spots: Hormonal changes can also cause an increase in the production of melanin, leading to the appearance of age spots or hyperpigmentation.

Thinning skin: Oestrogen also helps to maintain the thickness of the skin, and without it, the skin can become thinner and more fragile.

How can aesthetic treatments help combat these changes?

While menopause can lead to changes in the skin, aesthetic treatments can help to address these concerns and improve the overall health and appearance of the skin. Here are some of the most effective treatments for menopausal skin:

Collagen boosting treatments: As collagen production decreases during menopause, collagen boosting treatments can help to increase the production of this vital protein. Treatments such as micro needling, laser therapy, and radiofrequency can help to stimulate collagen production, leading to firmer, more youthful-looking skin.

Non-surgical skin tightening: As the skin loses elasticity during menopause, non-surgical skin tightening procedures such as Tixel Treatment can help to tighten and lift the skin. This treatment uses ultrasound technology to stimulate collagen production and tighten the skin.

What else can women do to support their skin during menopause?

In addition to aesthetic treatments, there are several things women can do to support the health of their skin during menopause. These include:

Staying hydrated: Drinking plenty of water can help to keep the skin hydrated and reduce dryness.

Eating a healthy diet: A diet rich in fruits and vegetables can provide the body with the vitamins and nutrients it needs to support healthy skin.

Using sunscreen: Sun damage can accelerate the ageing process and cause hyperpigmentation. Using sunscreen can help to protect the skin from harmful UV rays.

Getting enough sleep: A lack of sleep can have a negative impact on the skin’s overall health and appearance. Aim for at least 7-8 hours of quality sleep each night to promote skin regeneration and repair.

Using a gentle skincare routine: Menopausal skin can be more sensitive, so it’s essential to use gentle, hydrating skincare products that won’t irritate the skin. Look for products with ingredients like hyaluronic acid, ceramides, and niacinamide to support skin health.

Managing stress: High stress levels can contribute to various skin issues, including breakouts and exacerbating wrinkles. Practices such as yoga, meditation, and deep breathing exercises can help manage stress and promote healthier skin.

Regular exercise: Exercise increases blood circulation, which can help deliver essential nutrients to the skin and promote a healthy complexion.

Consulting a skin care professional: A skincare consultation with a knowledgeable professional can provide personalised recommendations and treatments tailored to your specific skin concerns.
