Menopause skin changes occur due to less collagen and elastic fibres being produced. Collagen is the supportive protein structure of the skin and elastic fibres provide the ability to bounce back. The drop in collagen and elastic fibres accelerates wrinkling and sagging and is known as Elastosis. The decrease in B-Estradiol during menopause is one of the offenders in the aging of the skin. We know that menopause is caused by age related changes in our ovaries which causes levels of estrogen and progesterone production to decline which results in skin changes.
