      Beat Menopause-Induced Acne with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

      BHRT for Menopause Seattle WA

      Acne At Any Age

      Bet you thought acne was just for teenagers, right? Actually, it’s very common in adult women. Studies show that acne affects more than 50% of women between the ages of 20–29 and more than 25% of women between the ages of 40–49.

      Dermatologists are finding that hormonal therapies can help some women reduce acne. It tends to affect women during menopausal phases, where symptoms become noticeable in a woman’s 40’s, 50’s and 60’s. More women are turning to Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) to relieve menopause symptoms:

      • Lower estrogen causes a reduction in collagen – which is responsible for building skin and connective tissue – leading to thinner, drier, wrinkled skin and acne.
      • Higher testosterone in women during menstrual and menopausal cycles causes more oil to form in the skin glands which leads to acne. BHRT helps balance hormone activity to offer a host of benefits including reduced acne.

      What is BHRT?

      Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy uses naturally-occurring hormones derived from plants and animals vs. synthetic compounds used in traditional hormone replacement therapy. Recreating nature’s dosing is always the goal, and BHRT supplements hormones to help your brain, skin, energy, and many organs function better and longer.
