The menopause usually takes place between ages of 45-55 when the ovaries stop producing eggs and the levels of the sex hormones oestrogen, progesterone and testosterone fall.
In addition to its gynecological effects, the menopause can wreak havoc with our skin, hair and bodies. Weight gain in common due to fluctuating hormone levels. Menopause causes many changes to the skin. Collagen production decreases, there is reduction in subcutaneous fat and the skin’s elasticity drops. That, combined with dryness caused by hormonal changes, can cause sagging – especially around the neck, jawline and cheeks – and fine lines and wrinkles. It is also extremely common for women to complain about thinning hair. It is important as aesthetic practitioners to remember that we have a remarkable toolkit available to address these concerns and this should form part of the holistic approach to menopause.
