Treatments for Menopausal Skin at The Skin Clinic at Urban Spa in Bishop’s Stortford
We really are experts when it comes to your skin and understand how the menopause is likely to affect your skin as well as your mood. Book in for a consultation so we can assess your needs and give you happier, healthier skin!
The hormonal changes that occur during the menopause tend to change your skin’s physiology. The slow down in ovarian activity, a decrease in B-Estradiol levels and lower oestrogen and progesterone production can all increase your skin’s ageing process.
But do not despair as the skin experts at our skin clinic & beauty spa in Bishop’s Stortford can help to improve the look and feel of your skin and body with our high quality and effective skin and aesthetics treatments.
While we won’t depress you with all of the possible side effects of ‘the change’, here are some of the main symptoms you may be experiencing, and what we can do to help!
Skin treatments for menopausal women in Hertfordshire & Essex
Oily Skin During Menopause
As oestrogen levels decrease, testosterone stimulates the sebaceous glands which produces more sebum. This can result in oily skin and spots or acne.
We offer several great anti-acne treatments and can recommend the appropriate one for your skin concerns. These include:
A SkinCeuticals Expert Micropeel which contains a powerhouse of ingredients with 30% pure glycolic acid. It is specifically designed to help restore radiance and brightness to dull, lack lustre skin, experiencing dryness, mild discolouration, and rough texture. Combined with protective antioxidants, this treatment will leave your skin looking brighter, more radiant and refreshed.
Crystal Clear Microdermabrasion which takes years off your complexion by gently exfoliating the outer layers of skin. Microdermabrasion provides immediate and visible results for ageing skin, improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, open pores and stretch marks. It is also a suitable treatment for acne-prone skin, helping with blackheads and acne scars.
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Skin Rejuvenationregenerates the skin by stimulating the production of collagen over a period of time. This improves the skin’s elasticity, texture and can aid in reducing wrinkles, improving skin tone and texture, lift and hydrate skin and even out pigmentation.
Excess Facial Hair Caused By The Menopause
Your hormonal changes mean that the testosterone in your body can be revealed so many women develop extra facial hair. If you find unwanted hairs appearing on your face (usually around the chin or upper lip), why not invest in some laser hair removal at The Skin Clinic at Urban Spa & Wellness in Bishop’s Stortford? We can permanently remove excess hair from most areas of the face and body using our IPL (intense pulsed light) hair removal system. Check out our Frequently Asked Questions about IPL Hair Removal here.
Sagging Skin & Wrinkles During The Menopause
Oestrogens stimulate fat deposits and when the level of oestrogen drops during menopause, this leads to fat being redistributed – usually over the abdomen, thighs and buttocks. Your skin can become saggier and more wrinkled as your skin loses its mobility.
We can improve the appearance of your skin with our CACI Non Surgical Facelift. CACI works to restore and redefine facial muscles, reducing lines and wrinkles while tightening and toning sagging muscles. It uses tiny micro-current electrical impulses to stimulate the face’s muscles, giving a lifted and more toned appearance.
Profhilo® Skin Boosting Injections also produce exceptional results over a few weeks. This is a skin hydrating treatment that rejuvenates and nourishes deep within the skin, stimulating the production of collagen and elastic through the slow release of Hyaluronic Acid, a substance that is found naturally within the body. All aesthetics treatments are administered by our facial aesthetics specialist Dr Gita Arora who is a qualified GP with a Postgraduate Diploma in Dermatology.
Age Spots & Skin Pigmentation In Menopausal Women
Your falling levels of oestrogen are also to blame for making your skin more prone to skin damage from the sun and for the increase in brown age spots. Generally these age spots pose no health risk, however they can be unsightly and create a patchy, less youthful appearance.
Freckling and age spots can be successfully lightened or removed using safe and effective Intense Pulse Light (IPL) treatments at our skin clinic in Bishop’s Stortford.
