Menopause and your Skin

Menopause and your Skin

Share This Post

Maxine often consults with new patients that have seen rapid negative changes in their skin – without realising it is partly due to the menopause. Our female hormones start declining from our early forties, or earlier, as we enter peri-menopause – its common ‘before menopause’.
13 million women in the UK are currently experiencing menopause.

Menopause is officially diagnosed as when you have one year without a period. The common age for this is 50-53. This has a drastic impact on skin health as the collagen degradation is 30% in the five years following menopause and increase to a further 2% a year. Considering that we loose 1% a year from the age of 18, that is about 60% loss.

This causes the skin to thin, loose hydration and wrinkle more.
Maxine often hears that it feels like the skin has aged overnight or within a few months.
Other factors add to this including smoking, sun-bathing, sunbeds, stress, poor diet, alcohol, lack of sleep, illness, and certain medications – ie. for thyroid.

A combination of Maxine Moseley Skin Clinics treatment options will aid enhanced results, to rehydrate, rejuvenate and strengthen the skin and get your bounce back!

Maxine has a keen interest in the menopause from personal experience! Also as she has been trained in Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy by Marion Gluck in London.

Although she now longer offers this service due to her busy full-time aesthetic practice, she is happy to offer help and advice in all aspects and referral to the Newson Clinic in Stratford Upon Avon.
