Many physical changes occur on the skin, so understanding how hormones – or a lack of them – impact skin vitality sheds new light on effective treatments for hormone-deprived patients.
If these symptoms sound familiar, your patients are likely to benefit from testing:
- Over-stressed persons with premature wrinkling – as young as 30
- Women with PCOS-related hirsutism or male pattern baldness
- Teens or adults with acne
- Individuals with thinning skin and hair with low thyroid symptoms
- Individuals with unexplained skin rashes, eczema or psoriasis

Hormone imbalance can be an underlying factor for a wide variety of dermatological symptoms. Testing allows providers to:
- Explain premature skin aging linked to hormone deprivation
- Identify hidden causes of chronic, unexplained skin conditions
- Monitor hormone levels in people using skin creams and topical anti-aging treatments to detect possible over-exposure to hormones absorbed through the skin
