What Does Menopause Do To Your Skin?

If you’re in menopause, you may be experiencing problem skin. You may have thought skin issues were over when your teenage acne disappeared, but menopause can bring a new slate of skin issues. 

We have some answers. Modern technology provides new ways to reduce or eliminate fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. At the private practice of Shubi Shahida, MD, we use the revolutionary TempSure™ Envi system to clear up skin imperfections that can appear during menopause. 

TempSure Envi advantages

TempSure Envi uses radiofrequency energy to stimulate your skin to produce new collagen, which revitalizes your skin, making you look as young as you feel. Following are three of the benefits of this skin revitalization system. 

Pain-free

The procedure is pain-free. You’ll feel a warm, gentle sensation wafting over the area being treated. All you need to do is lie back and relax. If you want to avoid an expensive and painful surgical face-lift, this is an effective alternative.  

No downtime 

You can return to work immediately after TempSure Envi treatment; there’s no downtime. You don’t have to miss work or social opportunities. 

Convenient

Depending on the size of the treatment area, TempSure Envi takes 20-60 minutes. It’s over before you know it. The treatment is effective for all skin types. 

How menopause affects your skin

The following are some of the effects of menopause on your skin that the TempSure Envi system can treat. 

Sagging skin

You may have noticed sagging skin around your cheekbones. When your estrogen levels drop during menopause, you lose collagen and elastin, proteins that keep your skin smooth, supple, and in its proper place. 

You also lose fat deposits under the skin on your face, neck, arms, and hands. Without the support of proteins and fats, the skin on your face and neck begins to wrinkle and sag, often leaving your cheeks hollow. 

Because TempSure Envi stimulates new collagen, your cheeks look plumper and your neck looks smoother. You notice less sagging and fuller cheeks very soon after your first treatment. 

Fine lines and wrinkles

Many women start getting fine lines around their eyes in their 30s. You may have noticed these crow’s feet. Wrinkles and facial grooves can appear in your 40s and 50s. You may have furrows between your brows when your muscles contract from frowning. Sun damage can accentuate them and make the grooves deeper. 

The TempSure Envi system smooths out those wrinkles, furrows, and grooves and improves your appearance.  

Cysts

During menopause, white or yellow cysts, called milia, can pop up on your face. They’re composed of flakes of skin that have become embedded under your outer layer of skin. TempSure Envi treatments can smooth them away

Spider veins 

Have you noticed tiny red lines that move across your nose or cheeks in no regular pattern? They’re broken surface blood vessels, commonly called spider veins because of the web-like patterns that appear on your face. TempSure Envi treatments can reduce or eliminate these unsightly blood vessels.

If aging and menopause have caused dull, dry, discolored skin or skin imperfections like cysts and spider veins, the answers are a phone call away. Call us or book an appointment online for your skin revitalization treatment and all of your internal medicine needs.
