What is "menopause face" and what can be done to address it?

Dermatologist Dr. Sonia Batra explains this issue is a real thing and can affect women as a result of the decline of estrogen and progesterone that occurs during menopause and it can take a toll on someone's appearance. The signs of menopause face can be:

  • Thinning of the skin
  • Dry skin 
  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Sagging in the jawline
  • Hair loss and thinning of the hair
  • Acne breakouts

Dr. Batra says there are products and treatments you can use at home that may help with these menopause face-related issues.

For hair loss the dermatologist recommends trying Minoxidil, starting with a 2 percent formula.
