Solutions For Common Skin Care Issues With The Menopausal Woman
Licensed team of women’s health specialists offers tips for treating skin issues from all angles
BAY MINETTE, Ala. — When dealing with menopause, skin changes are also a major concern for the women going through this serious life change. At Premier Women’s Health (PWH), Dr. Jeff Fahy and his team are poised to treat these types of changes from the inside out and the outside in.
When going through menopause, hormonal fluctuations can cause thinning of the skin along with loss of elasticity, pigment change, and unwanted hair development.
“When we have proper hormone balance the whole body benefits from that,” Dr. Fahy said. “When we are out of balance, every tissue in the body has some sort of hormonal responsiveness and everything can suffer.”
To treat this issue from the inside, Dr. Fahy uses hormone replacement therapy in various forms to treat the overall symptoms of menopause along with the skin issues women face. Jessica Thompson, L.E., PWH licensed esthetician, treats skin issues from the outside with topical skincare products and laser skin treatments. These treatments also help with other signs of aging from environmental exposure.
The Laser Skin Care Center at Premier Women’s Health services include facials, peels, mask treatments, peel alternatives, microdermabrasion, photo-rejuvenation and more for women of all ages, skin color and types.
“We try to harmonize to treat the whole person,” Fahy said. “Our goal is to optimize people’s health and healthy skin through whatever means are safe and reliable.”
Fahy will be discussing skin changes and key topics women going through the stage of menopause are dealing with including common symptoms and overall treatments, at the Red Hot Mama Event: Understanding Menopause on Jan. 12, 2016, at 6 p.m. at the Infirmary Eastern Shore Medical Complex main lobby.
