- Simple testing can reveal whether hormones are secretly sabotaging your skincare efforts.
- The range of hormones tested in the profile can help identifying where patients might have hormone deficiencies or excesses that are contributing to their skin problems. This can lead to treatment of previously undiagnosed conditions such as a thyroid disorder or PCOS, or adjustment or initiation of hormone replacement therapy when hormone levels are either too high or too low.

Do the following symptoms sound familiar?
Increased wrinkles, decreased skin elasticity, acne / oily skin, melasma (dark patches) or erythema (redness), hirsutism (excessive hair) or hair loss, myxedema, male pattern baldness, puffy eyes/face; dry, thinning skin/hair/eyebrows; brittle nails, skin rashes / eczema, sleep deprivation, skin dryness, thinning or rough, coarse skin, slow wound healing, increase or decrease sweating.
If two or more of these symptoms persist, testing can identify whether it's a hormone imbalance.
- Over-stressed women 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
Don't Let These Symptoms Go Unexplained and Unsolved.
Hormone imbalance can be an underlying factor for a wide variety of dermatological symptoms. Testing allows providers to:
- Explain premature skin ageing linked to hormone deprivation
- Identify hidden causes of chronic, unexplained skin conditions
- Monitor hormone levels in people using skin creams and topical anti-ageing treatments to detect possible over-exposure to hormones absorbed through the skin
- Measures bioavailable hormone levels
- Reflects absorption of hormones in topical skin treatments
- Test report correlates hormone levels with symptoms
- Shelf stable samples shipped back via regular mail
- No phlebotomist required
Hormones and Skin
Everyone wants healthy, radiant skin, but popular cosmetic cover-ups and anti-ageing creams that work on the surface don't get to the root of stubborn skin problems.
Diet, stress, sleep loss and sun damage are several obvious factors that influence how skin looks. Far less obvious - and often overlooked - is the hormonal connection that is vital to youthful skin.
Hormones are intrinsically involved with all processes affecting the maintenance of skin health, such as collagen content, skin lipid levels, elasticity, wound healing, moisture content, and facial hair patterns. Not only is skin a major target of hormone action, it is also a site of local hormone synthesis, as well as hormone activation and metabolism. A major cause of skin thinning/ fragile skin, wrinkling, and dryness is a deficiency in hormones such as estrogen and progesterone in women, and testosterone in men, while an excess of androgens can result in oiliness, acne, and either hirsutism or hair loss, and excess estrogen can cause a dark discoloration known as melasma. Thyroid dysfunction also has a big impact on skin health, resulting in conditions ranging from itching to myxedema. Whatever the hormonal imbalance, increasing numbers of patients are seeking help from dermatologists and estheticians for their skin problems.
Hormone testing is a first step towards getting at the root of the problem instead of just treating symptoms.
How Hormone Imbalance Impacts Skin
Diets high in sugars and refined carbs stimulate overproduction of the androgens (testosterone and DHEA), triggering acne and oily skin, and potentially excess facial or body hair. High cortisol stress hormones also disrupt with skin rashes and breakouts.
Likewise stress, smoking, junk food and lack of sleep can accelerate hormone losses, making us look old before our time.
With such a high concentration of hormone receptors in the skin - especially on the face - it's no wonder that signs of premature ageing are more obvious there.
