Did the Menopause steal my collagen ?

The Menopause can give women a variety of symptoms to navigate, and just as we may not be feeling our best, we may also feel that we are not looking our best and that the aging process is accelerating.  One reason for this is the depreciating levels of collagen in our skin. 

Collagen can be found all over our body in our skin, bones, connective tissue, cartilage and tendons. It provides structural support in tissues and is responsible for the elasticity and firmness of our skin. As women go through the menopause it is thought that women can loose up to 30% of the collagen in their skin within the first 5 years and from then on, a further 5 % can be lost year and year. 

So what can we do to boost collagen levels and slow the signs of aging?  There are a range of collagen supplements on the market which can help such as Heaven’s Collagen Drops and Skin Collagen Synergy from the Advanced Nutrition Programme™. For more targeted approaches we can look at collagen skincare products being part of our daily skincare regime such as the Linda Meredith Collagen Gel. We can also look at salon facial treatments such the Linda Meredith Collagen treatment. This as the name suggests focuses on getting collagen into our skin and does this by way of a facial. During the facial a fine layer of freeze-dried collagen is moistened into the various areas and contours of the face. The aim of this procedure is to reactivate the collagen in the skin. Here at the Foundation Beauty Studio are able we offer the Linda Meredith collagen skincare treatments and the collagen supplements, for more information please click here or call the studio. 

Another way of increasing the collagen levels in our skin is to try to stimulate the body’s natural ability to produce collagen. The collagen Lift, is a course of treatments that are designed to do just that.  At the Foundation Beauty Studio, our experienced and fully trained therapist performs the treatment which uses low frequency radio waves to provide the stimulation to get the body to produce more collagen. This non-surgical procedure tightens, and firms resulting in diminished fine lines and wrinkles a more defined jawline and increased muscle tone, It is recommended to have an initial course of 6 treatments followed by a monthly top up treatments to prolong and maximise results.
