Menopause: Why and How AQ can Help!

Menopause: Why and How AQ can Help!

What is Menopause:

The menopause is officially when a women's period stops completely for a total of 12 months, which normally happens between the age of 50-58.

This signals the end of the reproductive years and the start of a new phase of life.


What is Peri-Menopause:

This is lead-up to the above happening, when periods become irregular, they can be heavier, lighter and the cycle lengths can start to vary month on month.

This is known as the peri-menopause. This can start, on average, at or around the mid-forties and for some can last for up to 5 years or more.

This is also the time some feelings or physical problems they haven't experienced before can occur.

For some, it can happen earlier - either naturally, or after treatment for another conditions.


The Cause of Peri-Menopause and the Menopause:

Hormone levels are changing - specifically oestrogen, which controls the menstrual cycle.

As women age, the ovaries produce fewer eggs, oestrogen levels fluctuate and then gradually reduce, and this leads to the menopausal symptoms above.

However, this doesn't happen overnight though.

It can take several years for this crucial hormone to fall to low levels - and then it stays that way - causing changes to the body along the way.

When the ovaries stop producing eggs altogether, pregnancy is no longer possible, and this is when the menopause happens.



The menopause - and the peri-menopause years leading up to it - affect women in different ways.

The brain, periods, skin, muscles, and emotions are all affected by falling levels of oestrogen.

There are lots of possible symptoms and you can have some of them, all of them, or none - and for varied lengths of time.


The most common symptoms are:

  • heavy or irregular bleeding
  • hot flushes
  • night sweats
  • low mood
  • vaginal dryness
  • bladder problems
  • weight gain
  • Hair Loss

Other less mentioned symptoms can be, poor memory and concentration, usually called brain fog, painful joints and skin issues like dryness or adult acne.

Not all women get symptoms - but most do, around 75% of women report to have one or some of these symptoms.

A quarter of women going through the menopause describe having severe symptoms.

They can last for an average of seven years, with one in three women experiencing them for even longer. 

A lot of women don’t think about the menopause until their early to mid-forties. However, this can happen earlier and more frequently now we are seeing women going through these stages and symptoms in their thirties.


How can AQ Help:

AQ Skin solutions can help minimise and ease some of the symptoms mentioned through use and application of some of our available in clinic and at home products.

A brief mention on each one is below; however we will be putting each product and how they can help in the spotlight over the following few weeks.


Endo Test

An all-round supplement to help with symptoms of weight gain, sleep disturbance, energy levels and more.

Endo-Test is the first testosterone hormone rebalancing serum of its kind. Specially formulated by the AQ Skin Solutions founder, Dr. Al-Qahtani, a professor, scientist and immunologist, Endo-Test works by activating the proteins in the body which are responsible for producing the testosterone hormone.

While testosterone is commonly associated with men, a woman’s need for testosterone is of equal importance. As we age, the proteins which produce this hormone gradually switch off leading to depleted levels. This can have a significant impact on both the health and well-being of men and women. 

VRS Vaginal Rejuvenation System

A high number of women experience symptoms related to vaginal dryness. It is a silent condition that many women feel embarrassed to share with their partners, friends and even doctors. 

Extremely common during pre-menopause and post-menopausal years, vaginal dryness is a hallmark sign of vaginal atrophy – the inflammation and thinning of the vaginal wall due to a decline in estrogen. Along with vaginal dryness, many women also experience itching and stinging around the vaginal opening and in the lower third of the vagina.  

Advanced Hair Complex:

Advanced Hair Complex + was created to address the real issues that cause hair loss like peri-menopause and poor hair quality from various medical and external causes.

Using AQ's patented Growth Factor formula, Advanced Hair Complex + combats both these issues. It works by conditioning the scalp and returning the stem cells that line each hair follicle to their former healthy state.

Active & Eye Serums:

Both these products contain key growth factor ingredient combinations, patented by AQ Skin Solutions. These unique formulas can help with many skin care concerns bringing a more even and regenerated skin. They can help with acne, dryness, pigmentations which are just some of the symptoms that can occur during the menopause and peri-menopause due to hormonal changes.


AQ Also offer GFIT (growth factor induced treatments) for the face, body and hair/scalp.

These are intense courses using our specialist techniques and key highly trained clinics around the UK and Ireland.
