Say Goodbye to Dry Menopause Skin with BHRT

Have you exhausted every miraculous anti-aging facial cream in hopes of soothing your dry menopausal skin, only to be left disappointed by persistently dry and lackluster results? It’s high time you uncover the transformative power of bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) and say goodbye to your skin woes.

Menopause not only brings the commonly recognized symptoms, such as hot flashes and night sweats, but its presence reduces hormones and creates hormonal imbalances that significantly change our skin. Bright skin turns dull, sunspots begin emerging on once even-toned skin, and fine lines begin staring us in the face. 

But we at North Texas Vitality want to bring you good news. Menopause doesn’t have to take a toll on your skin and body.  With our BHRT therapy, we will help restore balance to your body by replenishing the hormones lost due to menopause. Under Fliedner’s care, we can help bring out your natural beauty without makeup.

In this article, we will reveal how aging and menopause change our skin and what we can do at North Texas Vitality with BHRT to bring back your skin tone and improve your overall health. Let’s dig in. 

What happens to our skin as we age?

As women approach menopause, hormonal fluctuations and declining levels of estrogen can lead to various skin changes, including:

Dryness and Thinning: Declining estrogen levels can reduce the production of natural oils and moisture in the skin, leading to dryness, itching, and flakiness. Additionally, decreased collagen and elastin production can result in skin thinning and increased vulnerability to damage.

Wrinkles and Fine Lines: Estrogen helps maintain collagen levels, which are essential for skin elasticity and firmness. Reduced estrogen during menopause can contribute to wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin formation.

Loss of Firmness and Elasticity: Estrogen depletion can lead to a loss of skin firmness and elasticity, resulting in sagging or laxity, particularly in areas like the face, neck, and breasts.

Hyperpigmentation: Hormonal changes during menopause can trigger an increase in melanin production, leading to the development of dark spots, uneven pigmentation, or melasma on the skin.

Acne and Breakouts: Fluctuating hormone levels, particularly increased androgen levels, can contribute to adult acne or exacerbate existing acne breakouts in some women.

What is BHRT and How it Works

BHRT is a form of hormone therapy that uses hormones derived from plant sources that are structurally identical to those naturally produced by your body. Unlike synthetic hormones, which the body may reject, BHRT hormones are molecularly 

identical to the body’s hormones, allowing the body to absorb them and bring stasis more effectively.

Effective BHRT therapy under the prescription of Dr. Fliedner can replenish the hormones that have declined during menopause and help alleviate the symptoms of menopause, such as dry menopausal skin. 

BHRT Addresses the Root Cause of Dry Menopausal Skin

The magic of BHRT is that it offers a solution beyond topical skincare products. 

Skincare products may provide temporary relief, but  BHRT tackles the root cause of dry menopausal skin by addressing the hormonal imbalances that create these issues. Hormones such as estrogen and progesterone play a crucial role in maintaining the health and vitality of your skin. As you enter menopause, the production of these hormones significantly decreases, leading to dryness, thinning, loss of elasticity, and an increase in wrinkles.

Benefits of BHRT for Dry Menopause Skin

Hormone therapy, particularly estrogen replacement or combined estrogen-progesterone therapy, can significantly delay skin aging. (Dermato Endocrinology) Estrogen is known to affect the skin’s thickness, and the formation of wrinkles and moisture levels. Estrogen increases the production of Hyaluronic Acid to maintain hydration and structural integrity.

Here’s how hormone therapy can benefit skin health during menopause:

  • Increased Moisture and Hydration: BHRT helps improve skin hydration by increasing the production of natural oils. Estrogen, in particular, plays a crucial role in maintaining the skin’s moisture balance. By replenishing estrogen levels through BHRT, women can experience a significant improvement in skin hydration, effectively combatting dryness and restoring a healthy glow.
  • Enhanced Collagen Production: Estrogen promotes collagen synthesis, which can help improve skin firmness, elasticity, and resilience. Hormone therapy may help stimulate collagen production, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines and giving the skin a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
  • Reduced Hyperpigmentation: Estrogen can regulate melanin production, potentially reducing the formation of dark spots, uneven pigmentation, and melasma on the skin.
  • Improved Skin Texture and Tone: Hormone therapy may help restore skin thickness, texture, and overall tone, resulting in smoother, more youthful-looking skin.
  • Reduce skin inflammation: Hormonal imbalances can increase skin reactivity and irritation, making the skin more prone to redness, itching, and discomfort. BHRT can help reduce skin inflammation and sensitivity and can calm the skin and reduce inflammation, providing soothing relief from these bothersome symptoms.
  • Management of Acne: Some women will suffer acne when their hormones are imbalanced. BHRT can reduce the severity of acne for women experiencing acne or breakouts related to hormonal fluctuations.

By restoring hormonal balance and replenishing these hormones, BHRT can help combat dryness, improve skin texture, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Begin Healthy Skin Habits

In addition to BHRT, it’s important to establish a skincare routine that supports the health of your skin during menopause. Cleansing twice daily, using a gentle and hydrating cleanser, is essential to remove impurities and prepare your skin for the next steps. Follow this with a hydrating toner to balance your skin’s pH levels and prepare it for better absorption of subsequent products.

Next, incorporate a serum or treatment targeting dryness and promoting collagen production. Look for ingredients like hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, and peptides, which can help retain moisture and improve skin elasticity. Follow this with a moisturizer that provides long-lasting hydration, and don’t forget to apply sunscreen during the day to protect your skin from harmful UV rays.

Finding the right BHRT treatment for your skin

When considering BHRT for dry menopausal skin, it is essential to consult with a qualified healthcare professional like Dr. Fliedner, who specializes in hormone therapy. He will evaluate your hormone levels through blood tests, assess your symptoms, and determine the appropriate BHRT treatment for your body’s needs.

Dr. Fliedner counsels his patients to prescribe the most appropriate BHRT treatment. He consults with his clients to discover their comfort levels with the different approaches and will recommend a therapy that may include creams, gels, patches, or pellets. Treatment choice depends on factors such as your preferences, lifestyle, and the severity of your symptoms. Dr. Fliedner will guide you in selecting the most suitable BHRT delivery method and dosage to ensure optimal results.

After prescribing hormonal therapy, Dr. Fliedner and his nurse will monitor dosages and results to fine-tune the treatment plan to satisfy your hormonal needs. Regular monitoring and adjustments may be necessary to achieve and maintain the desired results. Working closely with a hormone specialist will help you find the right BHRT treatment that addresses your menopause skin concerns effectively.
