The extragenital effects of ovarian steroids are relevant to the metabolism of skin and hair, the changes in body composition and the alterations of the subcutaneous fat distribution throughout life. When ovarian steroids become deficient or are produced in excess, different problems may arise in these tissues and some of these problems, i.e., obesity and cellulite, display gender-specific components. Therefore, a new field in endocrine research known as aesthetic endocrinology is gaining more…

The skin, the largest organ of the body, is the organ in which changes associated with aging are most visible. With increasing frequency, patients are requesting information and treatments that
Skin aging and sex hormones in women – clinical perspectives for intervention by hormone replacement therapy
It is obvious that hormone replacement should not be administered as an independent treatment for skin aging, and phytohormones may be administered, with the structural similarity to 17β‐estradiol explaining their estrogen‐like effects.
Impact of progesterone on skin and hair in menopause – a comprehensive review
Delays of skin aging comprises lifestyle adjustment, antioxidants, and several esthetic procedures, and in menopausal women, MHT displays beneficial effects on skin aging.
The biological subject of aesthetic medicine
This article explores how race, sexual attractiveness and ‘female nature’ are biologised in plastic surgery. I situate this analysis in relation to recent debates over the limits of social

It is argued that while it would be difficult to wholly disentangle aesthetics and health, analysis of how risk-benefit calculations are made in clinical practice offers a useful critical strategy for illuminating ethical problems posed by aesthetic medicine.
Epicutaneous Administration of 17β-Estradiol Induces Langerhans Cells Depletion.
The topical administration of E2 induced a transitory local diminution of LC population and a tolerogenic phenotype, which suggests that E2 may affect skin immune responses, inducing an inhibitory response, which should be considered when prescribing topical E2 medications.
Osteoporoz ve İlişkili Genler: VDR, ESR ve COL1A1
Osteoporosis is the most prevalent metabolic bone disease among developed countries and it is defined as a systemic skeletal disease characterized by low bone mass and microarchitectural deterioration of bone tissue with a consequent increase in bone fragility.
Cellulite treatment: evidence and ethics, brief history, and emphasis on current practices including liposuction
Obesity finally received the deserved attention of the medical profession once epidemiologists clearly labeled it an “epidemic” and the lay press has started to publish extensively on this topic.
Effects of oral continuous 17β-estradiol plus norethisterone acetate replacement therapy on abdominal subcutaneous fat, serum leptin levels and body composition
Oral continuous combined regimen of E2/NETA significantly reduced central fat accumulation as assessed by WC and STh, and attenuated the increase in SLL, and appears to have protective effects on cardiovascular function and probably on metabolic diseases by its slimming effect upon WC in postmenopausal women.
Multiple changes may occur during life which are cosmetically disturbing and may influence individual attractiveness and offer dermato-phlebologists a wide spectrum of possibilities to intervene.


Androgenetic alopecia in the female. Treatment with 2% topical minoxidil solution.
Topical minoxidil was significantly more effective than placebo in the treatment of female androgenetic alopecia and the number of nonvellus hairs regrown was increased.
Investigation of whether topical treatment of the skin with estrogen could reverse some of the changes in the aging skin found in the perimenopausal woman.
[Joint pain in pre- and postmenopausal arthropathia climacterica].
Referring to the patient population, epidemiologically the frequency and the degree of severity of menopausal arthritic pain as well as the therapeutical response to a hormone substitution therapy are analysed.
The pathologic dynamics of acne vulgaris
The purpose of this exhibit is to display the pathologic events in acne vulgaris, where the lesions of acne occur in special follicles, the sebaceous follicle, which are found in great abundance on the cheek and forehead.

In a group of 15 well-selected normoandrogenic patients with acne, both serum Ao glucuronide (G) and Ao were elevated and the ratios of Ao G to androgen precursors of both ovarian and adrenal origin were elevated as was the ratio of Ao/Ao (P < 0.05).
Sex hormones and skin collagen content in postmenopausal women.
The finding is that oestrogen or testosterone, or both, prevents the decrease in skin collagen content that occurs with aging and protects skin in the same way as it protects bone in postmenopausal women.
Exogenous androgens influence body composition and regional body fat distribution in obese postmenopausal women--a clinical research center study.
It is concluded that administration of exogenous androgens modulates body composition in obese postmenopausal women and independently affects visceral and sc abdominal fat.
