Treating Menopausal skin at Turn Beautiful
Every woman has a unique menopausal experience, so one treatment does not fit all. We need to analyse your skin on every visit, but also consider you, the person inside the skin. Along with your lifestyle, exercise and nutritional regime.
As Dermalogica Experts we will be prescriptive and offer you treatments for your mind, body and spirit. Consider whether you need calming and cooling versus warming and energising treatments. Whether we incorporate equipment that will add variety and achieve results. Such as; Direct high frequency, Galvanic iontophoresis, Microcurrent or Ultrasound to enhance product penetration amongst many other benefits. You may also want to consider alternative therapies such as; acupressure, aromatherapy and reflexology with the use of essential oils or Ayurveda to rebalance.
As professional therapists we offer flexible timings for your sessions as you may prefer a twenty minute targeted treatment on one visit whilst on another a one-hour skin treatment with additional touch therapies to relax and reduce stress levels. We may also need to incorporate exfoliation (the right level for the skin condition), hydration, and layering of products with masks, active serums and barrier lipids.
A moisturiser with SPF (SPF15 or above) is critical, as exposure to sunlight is known to accelerate ageing. To preserve optimum skin health you will need to aim your skin treatments every four to six weeks, a good home care regime, and an effective exercise and nutrition programme. Menopause is not a disease that needs to be fixed, it is a natural change in life and we are there to help you approach it positively.
There is a saying ‘age is a matter of the mind, if you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter’ One hundred percent of women have to deal with the effects of their hormones at some point in their life, whether it’s during puberty, pregnancy or menopause.
The skin is not just a sheath or covering of the body, it is an endocrine organ. If we understand the role of hormones and skin, we can take away the confusion, educate you on you life’s journey and as professional skin therapists help you to maintain healthy skin.
