Can Hormone Replacement Help You Look Younger?
Most people associate hormone replacement therapy with treatment for hot flashes, mood swings and other symptoms of hormone deficiency. But did you know that hormone replacement can not only help you feel younger, it can help you look younger, too?
Many recent studies have confirmed that estrogen plays a significant role in the maintenance of our skin. Estrogen increases skin thickness and improves skin moisture. As we age, not only do our estrogen levels drop, but blood microcirculation to the skin decreases as well, meaning the hormones we do have don’t make it to our skin. Bioidentical estrogen can help do the following for our skin:
● Decelerate age-related skin deterioration
● Decrease skin thinning
● Decrease the number and depth of wrinkles
● Improve skin hydration
● Increase skin firmness and elasticity
● Improve the production and quality of collagen
● Improve blood flow to the skin
Perhaps the major factor in estrogen’s ability to help women maintain a youthful look is its relationship to collagen. Collagen is the protein that gives skin its plumpness and elasticity. When we lose collagen in our faces, that’s when sagging skin, wrinkles and facial folds begin to appear. Collagen also helps replace and restore dead skin cells.
Estrogen is an essential building block for collagen production. After menopause, the body’s natural production of collagen drops off dramatically. And, no, you can’t purchase collagen in a cream or bottle. The molecule is too large to be effectively absorbed through the skin.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can help bring estrogen levels up to more youthful levels, helping our bodies, including our skin, enjoy its many benefits.
