Are Your Wrinkles Related to Hormones?

Wrinkles. They are one of the most dreaded and most unavoidable signs of aging for any woman—and are something that most women do their best to avoid. Most women know that wrinkles are a sign of aging, but they don’t realize that wrinkles specifically are related to their hormones. This is why many times when women are dealing with the hormonal changes that come with menopause, they start to see more wrinkles forming.

While some think that wrinkles are just a part of life—they can actually be linked to hormones and hormonal imbalances that can come with menopausal and peri-menopausal stages.

For so many women today, menopause and pre-menopause brings a great deal of change, both in how they look and how they feel. This, of course, means hot flashes, mood swings, and thin, dry and wrinkled skin. While this is an inevitable part of aging for any woman—it doesn’t mean there aren’t things you can do to slow down the aging process and help keep wrinkles away. 

This is where Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy or BHRT comes in. This hormone treatment can be used on perimenopausal and menopausal women as it mimics the hormones your body naturally produces and helps bring your hormone levels back to where they were when you were younger. BHRT has the same exact chemical structure as the hormones your body naturally produces. There are many benefits of these hormone treatments, and they can help women feel younger, even when they are at menopause age. 

It can also help slow down the onset of symptoms, such as thin or wrinkled skin that have so many women feeling “old.” Simply put, while low hormone levels can cause wrinkles to form, BRHT can help slow down these changes and keep the wrinkles away. BHRT can also help with fatigue, reduced libido, disturbed sleep, weight gain, hot flashes, and irritability—meaning women can not only look their best but feel their best as well.
