WHAT I DO TO FIGHT AGAINST MENOPAUSAL SKIN

The skin changes we experience through menopause can create havoc to our skin. Some women will experience acne for the first time in their lives and some notice more dryness, discoloration, sagging, lines and wrinkles. I know when I went through menopause, it not only effected me emotionally, but physically as well. When I looked in the mirror it seemed my youth disappeared over night and I didn't like that at all! I began a quest to feel better on the inside and look good on the outside. It wasen't out of vanity, purely the fact I wasen't going to give in to looking old as long as I could help it!

So here is what I did and do to keep fighting the negative signs of life and you can too! As far as treatments, I always reccommend going for the big bang at first; meaning do a series of treatments that will regenerate collagan and tighten such as the VoluDerm RF (microneedling with radio frequency). A great treatment series with no downtime! https://www.mycnmedical.com/services/skin-tightening://www.mycnmedical.com/services/skin-tightenin

Or if you already have pronounced photo damage and lines and wrinkles the Micro Laser Peel is a good option. It resurfaces and rejuevenates the skin from the outside in and does have a bit of downtime. https://www.mycnmedical.com/services/skin-resurfacing

Once you get that collagan stimulated and your skin bacl on the right track to rejuvenation, adding a few tweaks here and there can enhance the overall effect, and what I mean by that is a little Botox and maybe some filler too. Trust me, I don't want that over done look, but I do want to look more refreshed and youthful.

After that it's just maintance, a Hollywood Laser Peel once in awhile, a good chemical exfoliation now and again and using the right products with the right ingrediants to enhance all the positive benefits from the treatments. And did I mention SPF is your best friend?! It's a must using it everyday, winter, spring, summer, and fall, cloudy, raining, snowing!
