Maintaining Healthy Skin during Menopause
If you’re in the midst of menopause, you probably realize you’re dealing with more than hot flashes and night sweats.
Hormonal changes experienced during menopause cause dry skin and skin laxity. If you’ve noticed a change in your skin, read the following tips to maintain healthy skin during menopause.
What Causes Skin Changes during Menopause?
Hormones like estrogen are responsible for your body changes; estrogen is also responsible for the changes you may be experiencing in your skin.
Estrogen stimulates the formation of skin-smoothing collagen and oils. As menopause approaches, we begin to lose estrogen, causing skin problems and diminishing your skin’s ability to retain moisture.
How can AlluraDerm Help?
Changes to your skin may be permanent, but that doesn’t mean you can’t maintain the appearance of your skin before, during and after menopause. Some changes, like dry skin, can be helped by eating essential fatty acids—Omega-3’s and Omega-6’s found in salmon, avocados and walnuts.
AlluraDerm can treat your collagen loss from the inside out with a treatment called Thermage® CPT. Thermage® is a minimally-invasive procedure that stimulates your body’s renewal of collagen cells using radiofrequency technology.
We also offer Rx-grade skincare by SkinMedica® and SkinCeuticals®. With breakthrough technology and anti-oxidant ingredients, both of these lines can be customized to treat your skin specifically.
AlluraDerm MD Med Spa offers free skincare consultations to find out your concerns and recommend the best course of treatment. Contact us by calling 505-821-9630 to set up an appointment!
