Menopause:
unwanted hair growth and acne

Menopause comes with a wide array of symptoms.  Some women breeze through with few symptoms and welcome the cessation of menses.  Other women have a multitude of unwanted symptoms that range from mild to life-changing. 

As women age, sometimes underlying health conditions begin to show up and can be mistaken for just the "change of life."  Excessive hair growth, called hirsutism, is a common complaint.  Menopausal women often complain of a moustache, hair growth on their chin, on their chest or breasts.  A thorough exam should be done, including blood work, as the underlying cause may be related to insulin resistance, Cushing’s Syndrome, tumors, or reactions to medication.  Treatments for hisutism can include waxing, shaving and medications. You may also be a candidate for laser hair reduction, which may sustain longer lasting results. Your practitioner will know the best course of treatment and will go over options with you.

Acne is another common issue that often plagues menopausal women, and should also be completely evaluated.  Your practitioner will go over the causes of acne and the treatments available, which include medications, skincare regimens and laser and cosmetic procedures.  At Women’s Medical Center, we offer Salt A Peels, macro-dermabrasion, and masques by our aesthetician to clean the pores and help resolve the acne. These treatments also diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 

If you are suffering from these issues or any others that you feel may be associated with menopause, call today and make an appointment with Women’s Medical Center.  We’ll be happy to answer your questions and discuss your options.
