How Does Menopause Affect the Skin and How Can You Treat It?

Menopause marks a significant transition in a woman’s life, bringing about not just internal changes but also visible alterations in skin health. As hormone levels fluctuate and eventually decline, the skin, being the largest organ, reflects these changes in various ways. Understanding these changes is crucial in adopting the right skincare and treatment approaches to maintain skin vitality and youthfulness.

The Impact of Menopause on the Skin

  1. Decreased Collagen Production:

During menopause, the body’s production of collagen, a key protein responsible for skin elasticity and firmness, diminishes significantly. This reduction leads to the development of fine lines, wrinkles, and a general loss of skin firmness [1].

  1. Dryness and Loss of Hydration:

Lower estrogen levels contribute to decreased natural oil production in the skin, resulting in dryness and a lack of hydration. This can leave the skin feeling tight, itchy, and less supple [1].

  1. Thinning of the Skin:

The skin becomes thinner and more fragile during menopause, making it more susceptible to bruising, tearing, and showing signs of aging more prominently [1].

  1. Increased Sensitivity:

Menopausal skin can become more sensitive and prone to irritation, redness, and allergic reactions, necessitating gentler skincare products and treatments [1].


Non-Surgical Treatments for Menopausal Skin

Addressing the skin changes during menopause requires a combination of good skincare practices and professional treatments. Non-surgical options have gained popularity due to their effectiveness and minimal downtime.

Profhilo for Menopausal Skin: The Hydration Booster

Profhilo is an innovative skin remodeling treatment that significantly improves skin tone, texture, and hydration. Unlike traditional fillers, Profhilo is designed to treat skin laxity by stimulating collagen and elastin production, providing a more natural and subtle rejuvenation.

How it works:

  • Profhilo involves the injection of pure hyaluronic acid into the skin.
  • It spreads evenly, hydrating the skin from within and stimulating collagen and elastin production.
  • The treatment typically involves two sessions, four weeks apart, and the results can last up to six months.

Benefits of Profhilo:

  • Enhanced skin hydration
  • Improved skin tone and texture
  • Reduction in fine lines and wrinkles
  • Natural-looking skin tightening and lifting effect

Collagen Boosters for Menopausal Skin: Strengthening Skin from Within

Collagen boosters are supplements or treatments that help increase the body’s natural collagen production. They are essential in combating the collagen loss experienced during menopause [2].

Types of Collagen Boosters:

  • Topical Treatments: Creams and serums containing ingredients like retinoids, peptides, and vitamin C, known to stimulate collagen production.
  • Oral Supplements: These usually contain collagen peptides and other skin-benefiting ingredients like antioxidants.
  • Professional Treatments: Microneedling and laser therapies are popular in-clinic options that stimulate collagen production by creating controlled micro-injuries to the skin.

Benefits of Collagen Boosters:

  • Improved skin elasticity and firmness
  • Reduction in the appearance of wrinkles
  • Enhanced overall skin health and appearance


Lifestyle and Skincare Tips for Menopausal Skin

  1. Hydration is Key:

Ensure adequate water intake and use hydrating skincare products to maintain skin moisture levels.

  1. Gentle Skincare Routines:

Opt for mild, fragrance-free cleansers and moisturizers to avoid irritating sensitive skin.

  1. Sun Protection:

Always use a broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect the skin from UV damage, which can exacerbate menopausal skin issues.

  1. A Healthy Diet:

A diet rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and omega-3 fatty acids can support skin health from the inside [3].

  1. Regular Exercise:

Exercise improves blood circulation, which can help nourish skin cells and promote a healthy glow.


Menopause is a natural phase that brings about significant changes in skin health.
