Women in their 40s and 50s experience particularly dramatic hormonal changes because they are either perimenopausal or menopausal. Many women experience a dramatic decline in hormones during this stage which can trigger skin changes.
In our office, the skin complaints I hear most from women in this particular age group are dissatisfaction with age spots, uneven skin tone, volume loss, texture changes, dryness and sensitization. All of these skin issues become more prominent in more zones of the face as cell turnover and collagen production slow. We have in office treatments to combat these issues but office treatments are a quick fix. To protect your investment and achieve healthy glowing skin, these treatments need to be coupled with a comprehensive skincare routine. It’s time to call on intense ingredients including peptides, growth factors, antioxidant vitamins and Retinol to stimulate collagen production, repair damage, firm and shield – and maintain radiance!
