Effective Menopause


Menopause is a natural phase in a woman's life that signifies the end of menstrual periods for a consecutive 12-month period. Leading up to menopause, women experience perimenopause, a stage characterized by fluctuating menstrual cycles and various signs and symptoms that herald the onset of menopause.

Exploring Treatment Options:

To address the challenges posed by menopause, the Marr Clinic offers a comprehensive range of treatments. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) has demonstrated effectiveness in managing many menopausal signs and symptoms. Topical estrogen creams are specifically recommended for vaginal symptom relief.

Our approach begins with an initial consultation led by Dr. May Marr, where personalized treatment plans are tailored to individual needs. General skincare recommendations for menopausal skin include:

Use of gentle cleansers, Application of rich moisturizers, Daily sunscreen to counter reduced melanin production, Incorporation of topical vitamin A creams for DNA repair, collagen stimulation, and hyperpigmentation treatment, Skincare products containing natural ceramides, antioxidants (Vitamin B, C, and E), and sodium hyaluronate for skin hydration and barrier maintenance.
