What Are The Best Treatments For Menopause Skin

At Aestha clinic, we are all-things skin experts who specialise in regenerative aesthetic medicine. Menopause and peri-menopause are periods in every woman’s life which are associated with the decrease in female hormones. One of the many frustrating things about this stage of life is the way it can wreak havoc on our skin. The side effects of the menopause are common knowledge to most, hot flushes, night sweats, mood swings, confusion/cloudy mind and difficulty sleeping, but the effects it has on the skin are rarely mentioned…

Women going through the menopause may start to notice fast progressing and rather drastic changes in their skin, such as dryness, more wrinkles, less elasticity and a tired saggy look with dull complexion. The decrease in ovarian activity, lower levels of B-Estradiol, and lack of oestrogen and progesterone can all lead to accelerated aging of your skin.

The hormonal fluctuations during menopause are to blame for the changes we notice in our skin’s appearance. While many women now seek the help of an expert and prescription of HRT or bio-identical hormonal replacement therapy, that is not enough to tackle the effects menopause has on our skin. Hormone treatment can help improve your skin and cosmetic concerns, but it may not be enough on its own. However, a baseline of hormone treatment can make aesthetic procedures more effective and accelerate the anti-ageing process.

    These are the negatives for our menopausal skin:

     

    • Rapid loss of collagen – 30% of collagen in the skin can disappear in the first 5 years of menopause. The levels continuing to reduce at a rate of approximately 2% for every subsequent menopausal year. The reason behind this is the decrease in oestrogen production that is the main feature of menopause.
    • Increase in unwanted facial hair– Due to hormonal fluctuations and rise in testosterone
    • Decrease in skin elasticity and strength – As we age, our skin loses its natural plumpness and elasticity. This is due to a decrease in the glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) that help keep our skin hydrated and supple.
    • Dry skin – Your skin starts to thin and become less hydrated during menopause. Oestrogen levels drop, which not only decreases collagen levels, but also the natural oils that keep your skin moist. This can lead to itchy and dry skin.
    • Fine lines & wrinkles –As menopause sets in, collagen production slows down and existing stores are depleted. This spells trouble for the skin, with skin cells dying at a rapid pace resulting in thinking skin showing wrinkles.
    • Age spots and hyperpigmentation – Your plummeting oestrogen levels are also responsible for making your skin more susceptible to sun damage and for the increase in brown age spots. These age spots may not be dangerous, but they can be unsightly and make you look less youthful.
    • Adult acne –Androgens, which are produced by the adrenal glands, can stimulate the oil glands in your skin and cause acne flare-ups. There is also a rise in Testosterone that stimulates the sebaceous glands which produces more sebum, resulting in clogged pores and breakouts.
    • Hair thinning and Hair loss – As many as 60% of menopausal women experience hair thinning or hair loss. This is because during menopause, levels of the hormones estrogen and progesterone drop. These hormones help hair grow faster and stay on the head for longer periods of time.
