Management of treatment quality in menopausal patients with acne by hormonal therapy

G. Nicola, E. Gheorghe, R. Pricop, S. Mehdi, T.L. Hangan


Abstract: Acne starts to represent an important condition treated by physicians worldwide, especially at menopausal patients. Although it can occur independently, sometimes could be accompanied by hyperandrogenism features followed by hormonal abnormalities. When most menopausal patients showed to be unresponsive to conventional treatment, hormonal therapy represent a better alternative option. Hormonal evaluation represents a prerequisite for hormonal therapy, either replacing the unresponsive cases, either to identify the cause of hyperandrogenism. Considering that the aim of hormonal therapy in menopausal patients tend to be the reduction of sebum reduction, in the present review, the hormones implicated in sebum production (i.e. androgens, estrogens, insulin and insulin growth factor-1) are discussed including the management of the hormonal therapy for acne.
