The Effects of
Menopause on the Skin
Menopause is an unavoidable part of life for a woman, and the symptoms can affect her confidence and happiness. While it can be a significant inconvenience in most aspects of your life, you shouldn’t let it bring you down or ruin your health.
Over recent years, cosmetic surgery has considerably decreased in favour of non-invasive treatments. When it comes to counteracting the issues that many women face during their Menopause, there are many procedures available that are affordable and effective, creating age-defying results that can turn back time. Please continue reading if you want to learn more about why women suffer from menopause symptoms and what non-surgical treatments are the best for dealing with them.
Why are Women's Bodies affected by Menopause?
Menopause causes many changes in our bodies, notably decreased oestrogen production. Oestrogen is the ‘female hormone’ which stimulates the production of collagen, the hormone that gives skin elasticity and makes it healthy. With less oestrogen, there is less collagen, leading to many problems associated with Menopause. These are a few of the most common issues menopausal women report.
Dry Skin in Liverpool
Oestrogen stimulates the production of natural oils that keep your skin moisturised. With the depletion of oestrogen production, there is a decrease in these oils which can lead to dry and itchy skin. The itchiness can often occur during the day, but most women report it is worst at night, which is very troublesome for them. It can leave them struggling to get to sleep, worsening their health and happiness. Some people also experience abnormal sensations in their skin, such as numbness, tingling, prickling or a crawling sensation.
Wrinkles in Liverpool
Wrinkles are one of the most recognisable signs of ageing; when you go through Menopause, they can appear more frequently. But why does this happen? With the decreasing oestrogen in the body, there is a dip in the production of natural oils, which causes the fat in the deeper layers of the skin to start to sag, making the skin appear looser and creating wrinkles.
Another way wrinkles are created during Menopause is through the increased death of the skin cells, which causes a change in the cosmetic appearance of the skin, most notably wrinkles, attributed to the decrease of collagen. With fewer collagen cells, fewer skin cells are nourished, causing them to die.
Hair Loss in Liverpool
Hormonal changes during Menopause can often cause hair loss due to the decrease in oestrogen and progesterone, which helps hair to grow and not fall out. Therefore, declining production can cause hair to thin. During this, there is also an increase in the production of androgens (a hormone that increases oil production), shrinks the hair follicles and promotes hair loss.
The hormonal changes within the female body during Menopause can lead to many symptoms. One of these is excessive sweating. Like hot flushes, excessive sweating is when your body sweats more profusely and at times when you are even in a cool area.
Hot flushes are caused when you feel short and sudden feelings of heat, usually to the face, neck, and chest, making your skin red and sweaty and occurring at any time of the day or night. However, night sweats are often common in women suffering from Menopause, leaving your night clothes and bed sheets soaking wet even when you felt cool minutes earlier.
How Can You Combat These Issues?
Women no longer must face the risks of surgery to combat their skin issues or accept their changing looks. With so many new non-surgical treatments available, women can find something to suit their needs, personalised for their issues. The following are a few treatments that Aesthetics of The Royal Liver Building offer that can help women facing Menopause find more confidence in their appearance through hair regrowth and skin tightening and softening to increase their happiness.
Dermal Fillers in Liverpool
Dermal fillers are one of the most popular non-surgical alternatives for fuller-looking skin with reduced wrinkles. Our priorities Dermal Fillers can also add volume to the lips and contour the face. Dermal fillers are injected into the skin to push out fine lines and wrinkles from underneath, making it appear smoother and firmer.But what are dermal fillers? The Aesthetics of The Royal Liver Building uses fillers composed of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), naturally found within our bodies in our skin, joints, bones, and eyes. When injected into the skin, it is naturally absorbed by the body making the results look more natural but not permanent.
Fillers in Liverpool also come in different levels of thickness, making it possible to personalise the treatment for each client. The thicker the product, the deeper it will be injected into the skin. The results are visible immediately and last between 6 and 9 months.
DIAMOND MICRODERMABRASION LIVERPOOL
An intensive exfoliating treatment. Diamond Microdermabrasion Liverpool rejuvenates tired and dull skin to look to look fresh and revitalised. If you have begun to notice fine lines and wrinkles Microdermabrasion is an effective alternative to wrinkle relaxing and fillers, the process encourages the production of collagen which keeps skin firm and youthful. Diamond Microdermabrasion Liverpool is a minimally invasive treatment and it is perfect for
- Fine Lines and wrinkles

- Dull, dehydrated skin

Skin Boosters in Liverpool
To tackle the symptoms of Menopause, you also need to focus on the tone and texture of your skin to rehydrate it and bring back its radiance. As our hyaluronic acid levels decrease and we are exposed to the sun, our skin ages and can become very dry.
But Skin Boosters offers subtle enhancements that can hydrate the skin and give you a healthy glow. This treatment features mannitol, an antioxidising agent that helps to prevent the build-up of free radicals that degrade hyaluronic acid within the skin, prolonging the effects of Skin Boosters.
The treatment is carried out by using a syringe with a short needle to dot small amounts of hyaluronic acid on the superficial level of the skin to produce a plumping effect. It is used on specific areas of dehydration, such as around the mouth or rough areas of the skin. Maybe perhaps due to scarring.
Hair Regeneration (IV) in Liverpool
IV drips in Liverpool are often used when the body cannot produce ‘essential nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids. It helps the client maintain a healthy, balanced body to boost their energy and improve normal bodily function. However, at Aesthetics of The Royal Liver Building, it is also used as a treatment to encourage hair regrowth. Healthy hair requires plenty of keratin and collagen. Without a big enough dose, it can decrease hair health and even receding hairline and hair loss. But, boosting the amino acids that help produce these two hormones reduces hair loss and maximises hair regrowth.
The IV vitamin drip is administered our state-of-the-art aesthetic clinic based at the prestigious Royal Liver Building. It can take from 40 minutes to 4 hours, depending on the concentration of the drip and the patient’s desired outcomes.
Wrinkle Relaxing in Liverpool
As well as removing wrinkles and preventing new ones from forming, Wrinkle Relaxing can help tackle a variety of menopause symptoms. It isn’t just the fine lines that make some women self-conscious. With a massive change to the hormones within the body, many different side effects can leave women seeking help, including excessive sweating.
Excessive sweating is a common symptom of Menopause and can be embarrassing. Many women are unaware that Wrinkle Relaxing treatments, also known as Botox, can reduce the amount of sweat produced. But how does it do this? The purified protein, Botulinum Toxin, is injected into the affected area of the body, for example, the armpits, and blocks the signals from the brain to the sweat glands. The amount of sweat being produced is dramatically reduced.
Because you are facing Menopause in Liverpool doesn’t mean you should give up on feeling confident. You can keep yourself looking healthy and young without having surgery.
