While your knowledge and confidence may increase as you age, the same isn’t true for your hormonal levels and skin. As women enter menopause, which officially starts one year after the last period, they may observe a noticeable change in their skin. As per the findings of the latest researches, menopause speeds up body aging by triggering hormonal changes. The skin may appear dehydrated, fragile, and slack as hormone levels drop. You might observe that your face has more hair and your scalp has less. But no worries! You can stop and reverse these effects with the right products and skincare routine.
If you, too, have noticed a difference in your skin since menopause, this blog is for you. Here are some important skin care tips and treatments to help you achieve and maintain youthful skin.
Cleansing the skin is the first and very important skincare step in which all the unwanted dirt, impurities, makeup, and oil buildup is removed from the skin. Your skin becomes drier and rough as you age, so you need a product that provides extra moisture and hydration. The key is to use a mild cleanser that washes away debris but doesn’t strip away the natural moisture from the skin.
At BB Aesthetic, the most loved cleanser by clients is the facial cleanser by Skin Medica. If you don’t want to invest much money in a cleanser but want an all-rounder product that removes environmental pollutants, hydrates, and refreshes your skin, then Facial Cleanser by Skin Medica is your best bet.
This is our top pick and customer favorite product as it instantly provides a soothing effect to the skin. It contains extracts from the Camellia Oleifera leaf and Panthenol (Vitamin B-5), reducing inflammation and puffiness and encouraging skin cell regeneration and healing.
Keeping skin hydrated can prevents menopausal skin from aging speedily. During menopause, the skin of the face and body feels drier than usual. Moisturizers with ceramides and hyaluronic acids can add moisture to the skin. These components are designed specifically to enhance the moisture and vitality of aged skin.

Clinical studies have shown that RF microneedling can be a game changer for mature skin. The procedure is a form of controlled skin injury as patients experience swelling, redness, and discomfort after each session. However, the damage stimulates collagen production that encourages the growth of healthy smooth skin.
What does RF Microneedling treat?
The treatment is popular for addressing all the symptoms of skin aging. It targets deep wrinkles, fine lines, open pores, acne scars, the appearance of scars from injury or a skin condition, uneven skin tone, textured skin, cellulite, and loose and sagging skin. Patients will notice tighter and lifted skin within a week.
