Women who are either currently experiencing or have already gone through menopause know the immense toll it can take on the body. From hot flashes and night sweats to thinning hair and weight gain, menopause is certainly no picnic. You may also notice changes to your skin, which can range from mildly frustrating to devastatingly painful.
If you've noticed significant changes to your skin's appearance like wrinkles, crows feet, or liver spots, our anti aging treatments can help. And for women who now find sexual intercourse to be difficult and/or painful, Mona Lisa Touch treatments can work wonders. Let's take a closer look at these three popular treatments among post-menopausal women:
One of the most common complaints among pre- and post-menopausal women is the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. Our wrinkle treatments and fillers are perfect for crows feet, fine lines, and textural issues. These treatments stimulate your body's own ability to produce collagen, thus reducing the appearance of wrinkles and generating smoother skin overall. They restore fullness to your face, which instantly makes you look younger and well-rested. Many patients find that the results can last up to a year or more!
Chemical peels, microneedling procedures (such as DermaFrac) and microdermabrasion can provide relief for a wide variety of skin problems throughout a patient's life, including sun damage, oily skin, acne and acne scars, wrinkles, and more. But they're also very beneficial for liver spots and hyperpigmentation as well as skin that simply looks lackluster. As we age, these concerns tend to appear and become much more pronounced, so these treatments can have an even more drastic impact post-menopause when low hormone levels also contribute.
Vaginal Laser Rejuvenation
While many patients don't like to think about menopause at all, one of its most common symptoms is considered by many to be even more taboo to speak of than wrinkles! By the time a person reaches age 70, that individual will lose approximately 48 kilograms of skin. That's an especially important figure when it comes to gynecologic health.
After menopause, many women experience vaginal atrophy, which refers to the thinning, inflammation, and/or drying of the vaginal walls. Vaginal atrophy is caused by a decrease in estrogen and testosterone and can lead to both urinary problems (such as recurrent bladder infections), vaginal dryness/burning/itching and painful intercourse. While some women opt for hormone replacement, it's not always possible or advisable. At Allure Laser & Medical Spa, we offer Mona Lisa Touch, which is a vaginal laser treatment that helps to restore elasticity and blood supply. And because the treatments are amazingly quick, (practically) painless, and contain no hormones, it can dramatically improve your quality of life.
