WEB EXCLUSIVE: Exfoliation Populations

Menopausal Woman

Therapeutic Approach: Exfoliation helps to control mid-life breakouts and improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles, as cellular turnover rates decline dramatically after menopause. This client’s skin may turn red easily, but she may be successfully treated as a sensitive-skin client.
In-Spa Treatment: Mild fruit acids; enzyme masks, retinols and lactic acid
Home-care Prescription: Home-use versions of exfoliants above (encourage regular visits to the spa for light chemical peels)
