From podcasts and documentaries to new books and dedicated events - midlife skin has never been so in vogue. Conversations centring on the Menopause have even hit the workplace with businesses addressing best practice menopause policies. With October being Menopause Awareness Month, there’s no better time for CACI to M-power women to live their best life.
At CACI we say knowledge is power, particularly when it comes to our skin health. ‘As women age and approach menopause, our oestrogen levels naturally decline, having a major effect on the body and an impact on our skin,’ explains Sarah-Jane Morris, CACI skin specialist and trainer. ‘Oestrogen is an essential ingredient in maintaining skin health and appearance, helping to stimulate the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid to promote healthy skin, and a vibrant younger-looking appearance.’
‘When women experience profound changes to their skin,’ Sarah-Jane continues, ‘whether it’s loss of volume around the jawline or neck, an increase in hormonal acne, pigmentation (known as melasma) on the cheeks, upper lip and forehead - particularly if they’ve never had these skin issues in the past, it can be highly distressing. Not to mention, our sleep quality suffers during the menopause due to hot flushes, insomnia and other factors and this can affect the delicate eye area. CACI can help give skin back its confidence.’
With a variety of treatments available using CACI’s breakthrough system, CACI Synergy+, all these skin concerns can be addressed. S.P.E.D dual action technology enhances treatment results – firming, lifting and toning- while delivering simultaneous LED light therapy (red and blue light) skin rejuvenation. Red LED light promotes tissue healing, while blue LED light has an antibacterial and calming effect on inflamed or sensitised skin, which is particularly beneficial for hormonal-related rosacea. A course of treatments is recommended for optimum results. For your nearest CACI clinic
