Are you experiencing the effects of the menopause and peri menopause?
At this time in life, our female clients often report changes in their skin, face and body which can be alarming and disheartening. Changes in hormone levels can wreak havoc on our physical and mental health. It is a privilege to help restore clients’ confidence, allowing them to feel like the best version of themselves as they navigate this phase of life.
Dr Hill is a former GP with a special interest in women’s health and has a deep understanding of the challenges we face during this time.
With a combination of treatments and products, we can help you feel renewed, restored and ready to take on the world!
So, what are some of the signs and symptoms you may experience during the menopause and peri-menopause? And more importantly, what can we do about them?
Collagen decline and skin laxity
After the age of 18, we lose 1% of collagen per year, declining more steeply during the menopause. Let’s take a look at some collagen boosting treatments to help give you plumper, smoother, younger-acting skin:
Morpheus8 and Fractora – radiofrequency skin tightening combined with needling. For laxity, textural issues and lift.
Tixel – for superficial texture, enlarged pores, sun damage and fine lines
Ultherapy – harnessed ultrasound energy giving a deep lift from the muscle layer, promoting better quality collagen production.
Profhilo and Sunekos – for hydration, textural issues and antioxidant protection from further ageing.
Forma / Plus – radiofrequency skin tightening for the face and body.
Rosacea and broken facial capillaries
IPL – Light treatment to target facial redness and rosacea
Hydrafacial Calm – Hydrafacial with targeted booster serum to soothe and calm
Rozatrol – from world leading ZO Skin Health to improve redness and rosacea
As we age, we tend to lose volume in our temples, cheeks and definition of our jawline. This can lead to us looking tired and drawn, even when we may feel full of life!
Dermal filler – expertly administered hyaluronic acid filler can subtly restore volume to support the facial structure for a more youthful look.
Loss of bone density
Dermal filler will take away the shadows created by bone loss such as ‘sad’ marionettes lines and tired-looking tear troughs.
During the menopause, many of us experience the dreaded ‘middle age spread’! This familiar settling of excess fat around our torso can be frustrating and affect our confidence. Cellulite may also increase or worsen around this time.
In addition, we may experience loss of muscle mass, ‘diastastis recti’ following pregnancy and reduced functional strength overall.
Pregnancy, childbirth, and general ageing can also affect our intimate area, causing aesthetic changes as well as stress incontinence and laxity.
We can do so much to help all of these concerns;
Coolsculpting – To safely freeze away excess fat without needles, surgery or downtime. The world’s number 1 non-surgical fat reduction system (accept no imitations!)
Emsculpt Neo – Increases muscle mass and functional strength, as well as reducing cellulite and improving abdominal separation.
Votiva – A painless treatment for the improvement of stress incontinence, vaginal laxity and external aesthetics.
This is just a small selection of our treatments to help with menopausal symptoms. For a personalised plan, book your free consultation with Dr Hill.
Hair loss and thinning is associated with hormonal changes at this time;
PRP, Mesotherapy and Celluma light therapy can all help with this common concern.
Conversely, at this time we can also experience unwanted hair sprouting from areas we have not seen it before!
Electrolysis – a great option for permanent removal of hair in smaller areas. Suitable for fair and dark hair.
Laser hair removal – excellent for larger areas. Suitable for dark hair only.
We love ZENii London supplements for their high quality. Ranging from multi-tasking ‘Skin Fusion’, to collagen powders, weight loss products and omega 3, these high quality products can ease some of the symptoms of menopause.
