With menopause come skin problems. Your skin may begin to sag, become thinner, and become less elastic. These symptoms will make you look older. There are several ways to keep your skin glowing during perimenopause and postmenopause. Build collagen and elastic fibers to keep your skin youthful and glowing. Use creams that build collagen, like vitamin-A creams. Scrubs and creams that help you to shed the outer, dead layer of the skin help to build collagen. This is because they send a signal into the deep layers of the skin to become more active. Another way to build collagen is to ask Dr. Julie E. E. Kupersmith MD about injectables that build collagen. Our cosmetic surgeon can also help you with long-wave lasers that build collagen. These lasers send a signal to the skin to produce more collagen.
If you develop menopausal acne, ask our cosmetic surgeon about skin care and treatment for acne. Over-the-counter skin cleansers will not suffice because they are made for teen acne, which is different than menopausal acne. Dr. Julie E. E. Kupersmith MD can recommend products or treatments for your skin, like laser treatment for acne or peels and microdermabrasion.
