Have you hit the dreaded Menopause stage in life and wondering why your skin is suddenly ageing?

This is due to a natural decline in your estrogen levels which can have a significant impact on your skin. Less estrogen makes you more prone to the typical signs of ageing such as thinning, sagging and wrinkling.

During Menopause your body stops producing as much collagen. You then lose some fat under your skin and the skins elasticity naturally reduces. Hormonal changes that comes along with the Menopause can cause dryness of the skin which again leads to sagging, fine lines and wrinkles; especially around the neck, cheeks and upper lip.

However; there is some good news. You can relieve some of these skin complaints by taking care of your skin.

Recommended Treatments

For those fine lines and wrinkles we would recommend our Meso+ Deluxe Digital Collagen Induction treatment which is a form of skin needling. The skins own natural functions are activated through needling the skin and working in high active substances. During this treatment your technician will use a range of Cell Biologique products such as the Jouvance Fountain of Youth Serum for dehydrated, dull lifeless skin and early signs of fine lines and wrinkles.

Glycolic Acid Peel

This specific peel is great for Anti-ageing and unifying the skin tone. It reduces expression lines, grooves in the skin and the appearance of superficial acne scars. It also helps with skin flaccidity (sagging and drooping) and with alteration in the colour of skin.

Modified Jessner Peel

This peel is great for brightening the skin, reducing photo ageing, expression lines and superficial wrinkles. The Modified Jessner also helps with a loss of firmness in the skin, dilated pores, dull, lacklustre skin and sun spots. This peel is suitable for acne prone skins and those with uneven skin tone.

Skincare at Home

As you age It is still important to cleanse your face because your skin gets drier, you need to make sure it is getting that extra moisture. The key is using a great cleanser which is suitable for drier skin. A creamy formula is more beneficial as it is more hydrating compared to foam or gel cleansers which can strip away moisture.

The Medik8 Cream Cleanse is a silky cream cleanser that uses AHA mandelic acid to gently exfoliate the skin while sweeping away make-up and impurities. Cream Cleanse is packed full of skin conditioners to soothe skin and help keep your complexion calm and comfortable. Ideal for providing nourishment and hydration to mature skin, Cream Cleanse contains natural antioxidants to help prevent premature skin ageing.

You Still Need SPF

Although skin cancer and wrinkling are actually caused by exposure to sun in your 20s, 30s and 40s, you still need to protect your skin as you get older. This is because your skin has less natural protection compared to when you were younger, so it is important to choose a SPF and wear it every day.

The Medik8 Physical Sunscreen is fast-absorbing and rich in natural antioxidants, it is light enough for everyday use and strong enough to defend against all signs of photoageing. It is perfect for daily protection as it shields the skin from environmental aggressors while preventing lines and wrinkles. A fantastic base for make-up; skin is left protected, hydrated and supple.
