Estrogen Deficiency: Facial Hair and Poor Wound Healing

Excessive facial hair growth occurs in 39% of menopausal women, with the chin being the most common location. This may also be related to the impact of testosterone-related hormones on hair follicles. Scalp hair loss occurs in some post-menopausal women.  Estrogen deficiency can also interfere with wound healing, but hormone therapy can reverse this problem. We can personalize therapy based on a patient's hormone levels, lifestyle, and symptoms. Hormones can be prescribed in lower doses and the best dosage form for delivery via the optimal route. Our compounding pharmacist works together with patients and health care practitioners to determine the most appropriate formulation for each individual.
