[en] The estrogen deficit occurring at menopause manifests itself under various modalities in the diverse organs and their functions. Skin does not escape this global involutive process. In addition to the effects of chronological ageing, sunlight exposure and other environmental and endogenous stimuli, the climacteric appears to exert some dramatic consequences on skin biology and aspect. The epidermis, its adnexae and the dermis are altered by this process. The epidermis may become xerotic and exhibits altered functions. The dermis thins out and its elasticity decreases in concert with the decline in bone mass. The skin microcirculation is impaired. These aspects are some of the better-worked out skin climacteric changes of which in turn seem to be stabilized or in part reversible with hormone replacement therapy (HRT).
