MEDICAL SKIN CARE
Obagi is the foundation for a more confident and fearless future.
Obagi Medical is a global specialty pharmaceutical company founded by leading skin care experts in 1988.
Dr Inga has worked as a GP for the last 14 years, the last three years based in Oxfordshire. Initially, she trained to become a gynaecologist, working in the department of Gynaecology at the Northern General Hospital. It was during this time that her interest in Women’s Health developed.
During her time as lead of a Well Woman Clinic in Devon, she has trained and developed an understanding for wellbeing related to menopause and weight loss.
Dr Inga understands that your time is too precious to let your menopause affect you in a negative way.
Having menopausal symptoms can really affect your life in a detrimental way. Not enough women talk about their menopause and there is still much uncertainty about what the menopause means and how it can be managed.
There is increasing understanding of how hormonal imbalance causes accelerated aging of our skin, our thinking processes and impairs our overall well-being. If one has experienced menopause or has had a loved one going through it, they will know how there is a rapid onset of aging such as changes in the face and body, soon after the menopause. It is not just about the hot flushes – it is about overall aging.
Here are some symptoms of hormonal imbalance, linked to the menopause:
Anxiety or irritability
Feeling tired all the time
Weight loss or weight gain that you cannot explain
Increased sweating at previously comfortable temperatures
Difficulty in falling asleep or staying asleep
Dry, dull or sensitive skin
Thinning bones (osteopenia)
thinning hair or brittle hair
Reduced sex drive
Dryness down below (vaginal dryness, frequent thrush or cystitis)
Increased fat in the midriff – the so-called “middle age spread”
Since developing her knowledge and expertise in menopause care, Dr Inga knows that a ‘one size fits all’ approach does not work – by tailoring advice and therapy for women who are experiencing issues around the menopause, she can provide help when appropriate.
