How Medical-Grade Skincare Can Help Support Menopausal Tissue Changes
There are certain stages in life, such as puberty and following the birth of a child, that can drastically alter the appearance of our skin. As our bodies adjust to hormonal changes, the physical structure of our skin can be negatively impacted, resulting in outward imperfections and increased signs of stress and aging. This is especially true when a woman goes through menopause.
The Effect Menopause Has on Collagen & Elastin
When we’re young, our skin is full of two vitally important structural proteins: collagen and elastin. These proteins keep our skin tight, firm, elastic, and wrinkle-free. As we age, levels of collagen and elastin begin to diminish throughout our bodies. In our skin, this leads to increased signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, and laxity.
For a woman experiencing menopause, this process accelerates. Paired with loss of fat tissue in the face and neck, collagen and elastin diminishment can lead to sagging neck skin, jowls, droopy cheeks, and increased wrinkling around the eye and lip areas.
Thankfully, LUMEN offers several skincare products that can help combat menopausal tissue changes and restore a beautiful and more youthful appearance to the skin.
Lip, Eye, and Neck Rejuvenation
While many Lumen products are designed for use on broad areas of the face, we do offer a few potent skin rejuvenating solutions which have been specifically formulated for use on the delicate skin of the lip, eye, and neck areas.
Of all the areas of our bodies that show outward signs of change as we age, none are quite as pronounced or easily recognized as the lip, eye, neck, and upper chest. To help combat this, Lumen carries four powerful products, Renew & Restore for Lips, Renew & Restore Kit for Eyes, Antioxidant Eye + GF, and Neck Define + GF.
While each of these products serve their own unique purpose and are formulated with differing concentrations and combinations of active ingredients, they are all designed with one focus in mind: to reduce signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity. Regular use of these products, especially when paired with the right moisturizer, antioxidant product, and sunscreen, greatly improve the appearance of these key focal points to make patients look beautiful and vibrant.
Rejuvenating Body Product
Signs of menopausal tissue changes are, of course, not specific to the face. For this reason, we offer Lumen Body Renewal Serum, which has been created to provide benefits from vitamin A, boost antioxidant protection with vitamins C and E, offer gentle exfoliation, and strengthen the moisture barrier to improve overall hydration. The combined result of these benefits help supply the skin with a smoother and more supple appearance.
