Your hormones play a broad role in your physical and emotional health. It’s not just your moods. Did you know that the hormone estrogen even supports your skin?
As women get older, levels of estrogen naturally decline as a part of the aging process. And, that has visible implications for your skin. After going through menopause, most typically when you’re in your 50s, you may notice negative changes in the quality, condition, and appearance of your skin. The visible skin atrophy occurs due to your lower estrogen levels.
Can low estrogen skin be improved?
At Apex Dermatology, Dr. Karin Harp, MD, FAAD, FASDS, Dr. Aria Vazirnia MD, MAS, FAAD, Kristin Rupert PA-C, Mary Hanna MSN, NP-BC, Riley McCarthy RN, and Lani Keene LE are here to help. We offer multiple solutions and therapies to support and recondition low estrogen skin from our state-of-the-art office in Westlake Village, California.
Here’s what you need to know.
Laser treatment for low estrogen skin
Low estrogen skin tends to be thinner, showing more visible blemishes and wrinkles. Low estrogen skin also has lower collagen reserves. Collagen is the naturally occurring protein that keeps your skin looking smooth and full.
Laser therapies and treatments are an excellent tool to clear away visible surface damage from the exterior layers of your skin. And, laser treatment also stimulates the deeper layers of your skin to temporarily accelerate new collagen production. Talk to the team at Apex Dermatology about the best laser skin treatment approach for your post-menopausal or low estrogen skin.
HydraFacial™ therapy for antioxidant protection
When your estrogen levels get low, your skin becomes more vulnerable to oxidative stress. The hydrafacial is a hydradermabrasion procedure that includes extra antioxidant protection, on top of skin cleansing, exfoliation, imperfection extraction, and deep skin hydration.
You don’t need any downtime after a hydrafacial, and the treatment is completely painless and non-irritating. The team at Apex Dermatology can even customize your treatment with specialized moisturizing serums!
Topical treatments to support low estrogen skin
You may be able to turn back the clock on your post-menopause skin changes using topical treatments. Topical estrogen products cosmetically improve low estrogen skin in several ways, including restoring elasticity, reducing dryness, and concealing visible wrinkles. Talk to Dr. Harp about whether topical or oral treatments for low estrogen skin are right for you.
Piqotoning and low estrogen skin
Revolutionary new skin care treatment solutions keep coming out all the time! At Apex Dermatology, we offer treatment with the PiQo4 laser, also known as “piqotoning.”
This treatment option can address a wide variety of skin issues, with a large spot size that lets your provider work on extensive areas of your skin. And, there’s no pain or downtime with this treatment option.
If you’re frustrated with the way your skin looks in areas like your face and decolletage after menopause, piqotoning and other skin care treatments available through Apex Dermatology can help promote collagen production, re-hydrate your skin, and reduce visible skin discoloration and wrinkles.
