Menopause and the effect on your skin

Menopause not only affects the internal body, it affects the skin as well.

Menopause and the skin – the hormonal fluctuations don’t always  play nice with your skin.

Menopausal women experience the following skin changes.

 

Oily skin – Estrogen levels decrease so testosterone, stimulates sebaceous glands that secrete thicker sebum = oily skin and sometimes acne.

Wrinkles – Loss of supportive fat below the skin of the face, neck and hands.

Hyper pigmentation and age spots – Due to lack of regulation by estrogen.

Sun damage – Melanocytes are reduced (they degenerate) with less melanocytes, we produce less of the the protective melanin.

One reason why our facial features lose shape and become less defined is because of collagen changes. Collagen is essential for fullness but over time it starts to descend in some areas and shift position.

One of the biggest breakthroughs in facial aesthetics and anti  – ageing is to add collagen back to the face to revolumize it, especially the midface,” the image below, illustrates exactly where adding volume to the features improves elasticity and tone.
