How Hormone Therapy Affects Your Skin During Gender Transition

When a transgender person begins their official transition process, a process that involves multiple steps, both emotional and physical, to convert to their true gender identity, this experience, while also liberating, brings with it many changes that can be scary.

The idea of your outward appearance finally reflecting who you are on the inside can be exciting, but it can also feel insecure when your body begins to change in new ways. 

If you or someone close to you has made the decision to go through the transition, it will most likely start with a hormonal treatment which will change the distribution of fat in your body, affect your mood, your libido and your skin.

How does hormone therapy affect your skin?

A priori this will depend on whether hormone therapy is designed for a patient transfemenino (assigned male at birth, but identify more with femininity) O transmasculino (they were assigned the female gender at birth, but identify more with masculinity), as in the first The most common effects include acne and body hair loss and in the second, the patients transmasculine, common conditions include hirsutism (growth of facial hair) la pseudofolliculitis barbae (quistes a causa de la barba) y el melasma (manchas en la piel). 

 

Why does hormone treatment have different effects in transfeminine and transmasculine patients?
