The best skin treatments for older women





Oily Skin During Menopause

Beauty tips for older women cheltenham beauty salonAs we get older we tend to think that our skin will simply dry out, but in fact, as our oestrogen levels decrease, testosterone stimulates the sebaceous glands which produces more sebum.  This can result in oily skin and spots or even acne… which in turn can also lead to skin pigmentation issues.  To tackle this problem we recommend microdermabrasion, the ultimate deep cleansing, exfoliating treatment.  It uses minute sterilised crystals which pass over the skin to remove dead and dormant cells revealing smoother, softer and tingling fresh skin beneath.   A course of treatments will improve the texture of your skin, and promote a healthy looking, clearer complexion.

Remove Facial Hair with Electrolysis

Hormonal changes as we get older can result in an increase in testosterone which often leads to annoying hairs appearing on your chin and upper lip.  If you find unwanted hairs appearing on your face, why not invest in an electrolysis hair removal treatment at our Cheltenham beauty salon?  We can permanently remove excess hair from most areas of the face and body using this relatively painless treatment.

A reduction in collagen can see your skin becoming slack and more wrinkly as you age.  We can tighten and lift sagging skin with our Collagen Power Facial from Environ. A peptide-packed facial boosts collagen, softens fine lines and tightens lax skin resulting in a more youthful appearance.  It’s ideal for mature or photo-damaged complexions.  It uses gentle sound waves drive a nutrient packed serum combining 3 peptide complexes deep into the lower layers of skin working in together to give your skin a plumper more radiant appearance.

You could also try one of our award-winning CACI non-surgical facelift treatments.   CACI works by transmitting tiny electrical impulses that stimulate muscle tone and enhance skin tissue for a more youthful look.  Soft cotton tipped wands are used on the face to transmit the micro-current energy to the facial muscles to restore tone and elasticity.  

Age Spots & Skin Pigmentation In Menopausal Women

As we age, falling levels of oestrogen are also responsible for making your skin more prone to damage from the sun and for the increase in brown age spots.   Generally these age spots pose no health risk (but check with your GP if you are concerned).  They can, however, be unsightly and create a patchy, less youthful appearance.

Freckling and age spots on the face and body can be successfully lightened or removed using Microdermabrasion at our Cheltenham salon.   This safe and effective exfoliation treatment can target skin irregularities including sun-damaged, uneven or thickened skin, uneven skin tone and pigmentation problems.  A course of treatments is recommended for optimum results.
