Menopausal Beauty Treatments Near Me
Physical and Emotional Changes During Menopause
The menopause is a time of great change for all women, with fluctuating hormone levels resulting in numerous physical, as well as mental challenges. Menopause symptoms can include skin changes such as dullness, dryness and thinning, not to mention hot flushes, night sweats, insomnia and weight gain.
It’s also common for hormonal changes to result in emotional challenges such as mood swings, anxiety, loss of confidence and brain fog. These problems can be compounded if you are scrutinising your changing appearance in the mirror, worrying about the signs of aging you see and lamenting the loss of your former self.
Luckily help is at hand. At our beauty salon and aesthetics clinic in Winchester we have a wide range of treatments which can help restore your glow and sense of wellbeing.
Put Your Best Face Forward & Care For Your Skin During Menopause
During menopause the body’s oestrogen production declines and the skin cells become slower to regenerate. This can result in the skin becoming duller, drier and more slack, which in turn leads to wrinkles and fine lines developing. It’s not surprising that menopause is often associated with a loss of self-confidence.
We have a wide range of the latest anti-aging facial treatments available at Sparx, as well as medical-grade skincare products from AlumierMD. Book a consultation and we can assess your skin and recommend a bespoke programme of treatments for your particular concerns.
The following treatments are examples of the range we offer, all of which can help to restore your skin and rejuvenate your complexion:
Pure Hydro Facial – The Ultimate Anti-Aging Treatment
Restore your glow and get brighter, firmer, more youthful looking skin with a Pure Hydro Facial at Sparx. This state-of-the-art facial treatment is suitable for all skin types and can be adapted for your particular skin concerns. It can tackle many of the skin care issues frequently seen during menopause, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Slack skin which has lost its elasticity
- Dull, dehydrated skin
- Dark circles around the eyes
A Pure Hydro Facial a gentle, non-invasive treatment with no down-time needed, so why not book some “me-time” and discover a more youthful you?
Get Younger, Firmer Skin With A Radiofrequency Facial
One of our most popular treatments at Sparx is our radiofrequency facial using the Lynton ProMax Lipo system. This safe and effective facial uses radio waves which stimulate the skin’s natural collagen and elastin production. Over a course of treatments, this results in firmer, brighter and smoother skin, with many people seeing results within a few days of the first facial.
Sometimes referred to as a non-surgical facelift, a RF treatment is particularly beneficial for tightening loose skin around the jaw link which can result in a jowly look as we get older. It’s also good for softening wrinkles and crows feet around the eyes.
Try PRP Vampire Therapy To Restore Your Glow
Not as scary as it sounds, Platelet Rich Plasma therapy, or Vampire Therapy as it’s known, is an excellent treatment for tightening the skin, improving collagen production and boosting skin elasticity.
The procedure involves taking a small amount of blood from your arm and processing it within a centrifuge. The resulting platelets are injected into the skin to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes. The result is a fresh, glowing new complexion, with a reduction in visible wrinkles, lines and discoloration.
It’s suitable for use on virtually any area of the body and it’s particularly useful for tackling dark circles and crows feet around the eyes as well as lines around the mouth and cheeks.
Tackle Menopause Weight Gain
The hormonal changes of menopause can make you prone to putting on weight around your stomach rather than your hips and thighs as you may have done previously. When hormonal effects are combined with the general slowing of the metabolism as we age plus genetic factors, it’s very easy to see why many of us find we need to lose several pounds as we head into menopause.
Losing weight not only keeps you healthier, but it can also help you regain your sense of self and boost your confidence. If you are really struggling with your weight, and nothing else has worked, our fully qualified aesthetics doctor at Sparx, Dr Chris Airey, can help you to slim with Saxenda prescription only weight-loss injections.

If you simply want to achieve a more toned body shape, we would recommend:
Fat Reduction With ProMax Laser Treatments
Pro Max is a safe and effective non-surgical laser and radiofrequency treatment which can help you lose unwanted fat, reduce cellulite and tighten the skin. The treatments are particularly good for targeting stubborn fat on the abdomen, thighs and buttocks.
We can also improve the appearance of cellulite with a ProMax vaccum massage, which offers powerful lymphatic drainage to rid the body of unwanted lipids, or fatty residues. Radio waves are used to heat fat cells, increasing circulation can creating a long term improvement in your collagen fibres. Find out more here.
Treat Menopause Acne
The drop in oestorgen levels during menopause, combined with an increase in androgen hormones, such as testosterone, can mean that some women develop acne during menopause.
If this is you, don’t despair, at Sparx we are experts at treating skin problems and we have a range of treatments specifically designed to tackle adult acne. These include our medical skincare range AlumierMD. This includes specialist acne treatment products including Acne Balancing Serum that penetrates the pores to reduce inflammation and allow the skin to heal. Find out more here and book a consultation with one of our skin therapists.
Destress With A Relaxing Massage
Menopause happens at a time of life when many of us have conflicting demands from children, parents and work. It can be hard to find time for yourself, but it’s important to take time out and relax if you can for the sake of your mental and physical wellbeing.
At Sparx we offer a range of relaxing massages, all in the comfortable and private surroundings of our beautiful new salon and clinic. A full body massage will increase circulation, lower blood pressure, reduce fatigue as well as relieving menopause aches and pains and reducing inner tension and stress.
Book an appointment for a regular massage at our Winchester salon and we’re sure you will feel the benefits.
