You might be prepared for hot flushes, night sweats and mood swings. But there are a host of other (less publicised) symptoms associated with menopause, some easier to address than others. At Woman Beauty in Nelson, we can help you with the hormonal changes that affect your skin during this time.
The menopause, your skin, and how we help:
Falling oestrogen levels causes your skin to lose its elasticity and become drier and wrinkled. Several of our advanced facial treatments are particularly appropriate for menopausal skin.
Firstly, Omnilux LED light therapy will plump and tighten your skin while minimising fine lines and wrinkles. It has the added bonus of improving your mood! Additionally, with the Revive Me Omnilux Facial, you can enjoy the luxury of a facial and the omnilux combined.
The Sothys Hydra 3Ha Facial is the crème de la crème of facials. We recommend three treatments over two months. This facial creates a unique triple Hyaluronic acid approach to restore, reactivate and rejuvenate all the vital elements of skin hydration. It can offer a 71% increase in skin moisture levels after just one treatment.
Finally, consider the Anti-Ageing Trio. This facial offers a deep even exfoliation with Glycolic, to smooth and refine. Then you’ll drift away under the red Omnilux LED light. This promotes hydration and stimulates collagen. To finish off, you will enjoy our much loved 02 facial to plump fine lines and increase luminosity. This facial favourite is currently a seasonal special.
In a cruel twist of nature, some women experience acne-like breakouts around menopause. If this happens to you, we can tailor the correct advanced facial for your skin and advise on home skincare using our leading cosmeceutical skincare brand, Ultraceuticals.
Fighting the fuzz:
As levels of female hormones fall, you may begin to see unwanted facial hair beginning to sprout! We can help you fight the fuzz. We can wax the delicate areas of your face, or you may wish to consider ELOS IPL for more permanent solutions.
If you’re considering IPL do ask to see your therapist’s certification. Sadly, it is possible to buy IPL or laser treatment systems and operate them with minimal or no training. At Woman Beauty, we have trained and certified every therapist who offers IPL treatment for hair reduction and skin rejuvenation.
If you’re going through menopause and your skin needs a little extra TLC call us to find out how we can help.
