Menopausal Skin

WHAT IS MENOPAUSAL SKIN?

At menopause, our skin starts to produces slightly less collagen and elastic fibers. Collagen is the supportive protein structure of the skin, and elastic fibers provide the ability to bounce back. So the drop in collagen and elastic fibers accelerates wrinkling and sagging.

Menopause can begin in early 50's but usually 5-10 years  earlier ie in 35 - 40 years of age. Women can experience the folowing skin conditions:

  • pre- menopausal acne
  • pigment and melasma ( increased melanin caused by hormones not sun)
  • loss of firmness & plumpness

POSSIBLE TREATMENTS:

Skin rejuvenation with IPL and Lasers 
Facial Peels
Microdermabrasion
CIT Collagen induction Therapy ( Skin Needling) 
PRP
Injectables with botox and Filers ( Non Surgical face lift) 
Babor Sea Creations Facial 
HSR lifting and Ultimate  Anti-ageing facial 

Lasers  and IPL light therapy that build collagen

Long-wave lasers are known to build collagen . Photorejuvenation with intense pulse light devices, or IPLs, also sends a signal to the skin to make more collagen. With these treatments, the texture and tone of the skin should all improve some. These are not dramatic but every little bit helps. Five monthly treatments should give you results, followed by once or twice a year for maintenance. Used over many years, they can help to maintain a youthful appearance to skin.

Injectables that build collagen  

The only injectable that really builds collagen currently is Sculptra. Sculptra is a different form of lactic acid our muscles naturally produce. When it is injected, the Sculptra sends a signal to the cells that make collagen to make more of it. Gradually the Sculptra is absorbed by the body, just like lactic acid in our muscles. Patients end up with more collagen and more youthful skin.

DAILY HOME CARE – TO MAXIMISE RESULTS IN QUICKEST TIME

Creams that build collagen.  Anything that builds collagen in your skin will help to maintain that youthful thickness, glow, and reflectivity. Renova/Tazorac/Retin-A/tretinon are all names for prescription vitamin-A creams. These are still the gold standard for collagen-building creams in the skin. There is 20 years of good data and millions of satisfied patients to support using these vitamin-A cousins, also called retinoids. There is also evidence to support using good-quality vitamin-C serums to build collagen.

Exfoliants .  Creams that help to shed the outer, dead layer of the skin build collagen because they send a signal to the deeper layers of the skin to become more active. These are gentle scrubs, and there are many good ones on the market. Don’t over do these, particularly if you have sensitive skin. Twice a week is fine. If you have very tough, oily skin, we recommend offects exfoliating polish by ZO Skin Health . Alpha and beta hydroxy acids are known to build collagen as well so we recommend
