Effects of Menopause on your Skin

Typically occurring between the ages of 40 and 45, menopause marks a natural shift as the levels of key female hormones, such as oestrogen and progesterone, decline. This phase, often referred to as 'the change of life', can bring about a variety of symptoms. From unexpected hot flushes to mood swings, depression, and anxiety, the onset of menopause can vary in its effects from woman to woman. Other common symptoms include sleep disturbances, body aches, and changes in skin health.

During perimenopause, the transitional phase leading up to menopause, hormonal changes can significantly impact skin integrity. As estrogen levels fluctuate, women may experience changes such as dryness, thinning, and decreased elasticity in their skin. These shifts can contribute to various skin concerns, including increased sensitivity, uneven texture, and a loss of firmness. Understanding the effects of perimenopause, as well as menopause, on skin health is crucial for women navigating this stage of life.

Navigating menopause and perimenopause's impact on skin integrity prompts many women to consider proactive measures. While starting skincare routines in the late 20s or early 30s can help preemptively address hormonal shifts, deciding on more intensive treatments like collagen induction treatments or RF needling should be guided by individual needs and preferences.

Consulting with a Skin Renewal aesthetic doctor can offer personalised recommendations tailored to your unique skin concerns and readiness for treatment, contributing to long-term skin health and resilience.
