25 November Menopausal Skin
We all know that the skin ages as we grow older, but this unfortunately can be accelerated for women around the time of the menopause. We see a large number of menopausal women who are trying to delay this acceleration and keep their youthful appearance natural, without looking like they have had anything ‘done’.
TURN BACK THE CLOCK
Skin ageing includes the loss of collagen, elasticity and laxity, change in skin tone and texture, and the formation of fine lines & wrinkles. Bone shrinkage and remodelling leads to volume loss and the skin therefore loses its structural support. Fat is also lost during the ageing process and redistributed causing volume loss, changing the contours of the face and leading to deep creases and folds. Muscles shrink and contract, causing further fat displacement and skin sagging. The upper layer of the skin thins due to collagen loss, which causes a reduction in skin elasticity and hydration. A drop in oestrogen levels, associated with the menopause, cause a loss of elasticity that worsens the already sagging skin.

ELLANSÉ® Dermal Fillers
An advanced rejuvenating dermal filler is the perfect choice for both women & men who are looking for skin revitalisation and firmness. Unlike traditional fillers, as well as treating wrinkles & volume loss, ELLANSÉ® acts as a biostimulator that uses the body’s natural response to stimulate collagen production to treat the underlying causes of facial ageing with long-lasting effects that give you a natural youthful appearance!
Bioidentical Hormone Therapy (BHT)
A natural hormone therapy treatment most frequently used to ease the symptoms of perimenopause and menopause. Bioidentical hormones completely copy your naturally occurring hormones which means the hormones used in BHRT are identical to the hormones which are produced in your body, and work to rebalance your hormone levels.
