Menopause + Chemical Peels: The Benefits

From the hot flashes and night sweats, to the mood swings and dryness, it’s no secret that menopause isn’t a walk in the park. Everything in your body is changing. Estrogen, a key component in stimulating smooth skin, begins to decrease which leads to dryness and imperfections in the skin. Imperfections, such as sagging skin, acne, fine lines, and wrinkles, can leave a woman feeling less than gorgeous. Thankfully, there is an alternative to accepting less than glowing skin: chemical peels.

Chemical peels are great for anyone who wants to rejuvenate their skin and look well-hydrated, healthy, and more youthful. They can be done on the face, neck, or hands. The treatment stimulates the production of collagen which is an amino acid that gives skin strength and elasticity. It also helps your skin to replace dead skin cells, thus fighting the looks of aging.

Chemical peels are known to reduce the signs of aging as well as clear up any acne or acne scarring. The treatment is also known to reduce fine lines under the eyes and around the mouth. A chemical peel will treat wrinkles caused either by aging or from sun damage. With all of these imperfections removed, skin looks younger and healthier. This will allow patients to not only look amazing, but to also feel their best.

During menopause, many changes are occurring. That can leave women feeling insecure and uncomfortable in their own bodies. A chemical peel can be a good alternative to those feelings. The use of an acid solution will remove old, dead cells from your skin. One treatment takes only 15 minutes to apply and slowly peels over the following days. Immediately after your treatment, your skin may appear red or slightly pink, but this will subside within a couple of hours. For a few days, your skin may feel dry and tight as the treatment flakes away your dead cells. This is all natural and will end up leaving your skin looking rejuvenated and younger.

Just because things are changing doesn’t mean you have to feel different. Try a chemical peel to see your younger self staring back at you in the mirror. And make sure that after your treatment, you continue to hydrate and restore your skin. This may mean switching up your daily face-wash for a product that is specifically for dry skin. Or possibly, adding a daily moisturizer that is a heavy cream. Whichever way you keep your skin looking youthful, make sure to consider a chemical peel to get it looking its best.  

As we transition into the fall season, it’s the perfect time for a peel. Contact Tryst to schedule your peel consultation and appointment today!
