women experience change in their skin and hair in response to the
drop in hormone levels during perimenopause and menopause. If you

may begin to develop wrinkles. Learn more

growth, and women may experience excess hair growth on their bodies,

continues to produce a small amount of the male hormone testosterone,
which can contribute to such hair growth or the thinning of hair
on the scalp experienced by some women at this time.
