Post Menopause Skincare: Everything You Need to Know

Cynosure Skin Revitalization


A woman’s hormones assist with maintaining and supporting smooth, youthful skin. As we mature and reach menopause, our skin goes through a number of changes and becomes more delicate and prone to an array of beauty concerns. However, with the correct consistent care, maintaining flawless skin post-menopause is simple.

The skin has a tendency to become more sensitive to external stimuli such UV light and temperature changes post-menopause, therefore it is vital to develop a rigorous skincare routine to ensure your skin retains its youthful glow as you get older.

Following menopause, there is a decrease in cell renewal meaning that skin cells do not renew as rapidly. This means that specific steps need to be taken in your skincare routine to avoid dermal collagen loss. This can be achieved through dedication to a three-step skincare routine that involves cleansing, toning and the application of serums and moisturisers. Active ingredients such as Vitamin C and retinol can also be introduced for maximum impact.

Along with this, introducing laser treatments such as our PicoSure technology will ensure that the skin’s elastin levels are increased to revitalise the skin and keep it looking smooth. Perfect for combining with your skincare routine, regular PicoSure treatments are the number one way to maintain your youthful glow.

With aggressors like oxidative pollution and the sun’s UV rays taking their toll on skin throughout our lifetime, many women see an increase in skin pigmentation after menopause occurs. It is estimated that the majority of skin damage is caused by the sun, meaning that as the skin becomes more sensitive to UV light, therefore it is vital to maintain adequate skin protection in the form of a daily SPF. This will ensure that your skin is protected from photodamage and help to safeguard against the signs of aging.

Laser is the gold standard for effectively regenerating the skin’s natural production of elastin and collagen for a firmer, more radiant complexion. Transcending beyond the skin’s outer layer, our non-invasive PicoSure technology accelerates the skin’s production of collagen to regenerate the skin’s collagen fibres to keep it looking youthful and vibrant. With each treatment lasting just 25 minutes and no down time required, it’s the smarter choice for those who are serious about keeping their skin in optimal condition as they sail into their golden years.
