What is Menopausal skin?

The Menopausal skin time of life begins 12 months after a woman’s last period. This triggers changes throughout the body, hair but also your skin. Post-menopause changes and skin concerns are mainly all a result of the declining hormone Estrogen. When this hormone declines, water retention, hydration and collagen production also drops as a result. Here at FTT Skin Clinics we offer a range of in clinic treatments and at home skin care. To maximise your well-being and skin’s health during these unfamiliar changes.

Symptoms of Menopausal Skin Concerns.

  • Loss of Volume and Plumpness of Skin – When our hormone levels drop, our collagen production decreases with it. We lose that youthful, hydrated bounce to our skin, most commonly around the cheek & jowls area of the face. Tissue & skin may start to sag as well as lose its tightness.
  • Skin Irritation – Due to decreased skin hydration you may find your skin being more dry than usual, flakey texture as well as irritable. If your skin looks red or rashy, we advise seeing your doctor first.
  • Dark Spots or Age Spots – Age & dark spots appear commonly after menopausal change. This may look like a change in pigmentation of your skin.
  • Excess/Unwanted Facial Hair – Most commonly developed on the upper lip, chin, lower part of the face
  • Post-Menopausal Acne Breakout – Unfortunately even if you are someone who has not suffered from acne prior, decreasing Estrogen can trigger Acne breakouts.
