Menopause brings in many changes to a woman’s life which may not only change their appearance physically but can also affect them mentally. As aesthetic practitioners we can help ease this change by providing treatment to rejuvenate and provide positive changes both physically and mentally. Perimenopause and Menopause patients can be affected by the sudden change in their appearance, by using our artistic skill and treatments we can provide an array of options and packages to help address their areas of concern and leave them feeling happy and confident in their looks!

Main menopause symptoms:

Menopause Treatment: Skin Care

It is no secret that skincare needs to be addressed and altered as we move through our lives and begin the ageing process. Concerns we had in our 20’s may no longer be a worry but new concerns may arise in our 30’s and so on, so by switching up your products and using the help of a skincare specialist you will be getting the best out of your creams. Those going through perimenopause and menopause will notice difference within their skin from laxity to pigmentation. As with all treatments and products there is no one size fits all. By offering your patients skin assessments and skincare advice you will help them in creating a healthy foundation for treatments. In our clinics we stock a wide range of skin care for all conditions, we also offer facial assessments using our VISIA machine. We recommend our delegates look into stocking their own skincare as it is so important your patients are following their own routine so they are getting the best out of all their treatments. If you are not too sure about skincare we offer product training which discusses key ingredients, skin care conditions and how to perform as assessment, find out more here! 

Taking the time to listen to your patient and work with them and their budget to create a skincare bundle to help their skin be its best through this time!

Menopause Treatment: Skin

Offering a course of skin treatments will help target visible ageing. Chemical peels help to address and treat skin conditions such as fine lines. As well as rejuvenating the skin with anti-ageing effects. The skin peel works by penetrating into the epidermis reaching a deeper point than any home skincare products. You can also offer this treatment alongside microdermabrasion or microneedling, coupled together the treatments unblock pores leaving you with immediately clearer and brighter skin.

Microneedling treatment targets fine lines, acne scarring and pigmentation the treatment stimulates natural collagen which refreshes and rejuvenates the appearance of the skin. This natural treatment can be used all over the face, the décolletage and the hands.

CPL treatments will also help stimulate collagen and help to tighten the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and help to combat skin concerns such as pigmentation.

All of the above treatments achieve optimum results by being completed within a course of three, by packaging up these treatments you are helping to encourage repeat business and have your patients get the most out of their treatments!

Menopause Treatment: Injectables 

Anti-wrinkle treatments, the most popular treatment when it comes to anti-ageing, the injections will help to relax the muscles causing wrinkles.

Dermal fillers will add volume into the areas where patients are noticing sagging, such as around the eyes and jawlines.

Skin boosters will add hydration to the patients skin, increasing skin health and achieving a natural glow!

As with all treatments, you will need to invite your patients for a consultation will you will discuss their concerns and use your expert understanding to come up with a treatment plan which combines treatment.

Menopause Treatment: Hair

Another common side effect of perimenopause and menopause is hair thinning, this can be helped by treatments such as PRP and microneedling. Helping to regenerate growth cells and encourage hair growth. Both treatments will need to be performed within a course and you can also look at adding some supplements for hair growth to create a hair growth package for your patients containing treatment and supplements.

The opposite end of hair loss is hair growth, another common side effect. Due to the ever changing oestrogen and testosterone levels, some patients will notice more facial hair, this is when the testosterone is more apparent than the oestrogen, creating hair follicles in places you may not of noticed them before! Laser hair removal is a popular cure for such concerns and can be used across the whole body needing a course of 6-8 treatments per area.


You know as much as we do that a one off treatment will not solve the concerns your patient may have. They will need a combination of treatments over a time period to achieve best results. Developing your own packages in house for patients going through the menopause or bespoking packages per person will help to bring in new clientele whilst also catering for your existing client base who may not know about all the services you offer. The packages will see a steady income for your company and it will also allow your patients to meet their appearance and skin ideals.
