    TLDR Menopause affects hair and skin; more research needed for treatment.
    This document from 11 years ago discusses the impact of menopause on hair and skin disorders in women, including hirsutism, alopecia, skin atrophy, and slackness of facial skin. Current therapies aim to rectify underlying hormonal imbalances and improve cosmetic appearance, but there is little evidence to support treatment for these disorders specifically in post-menopausal women. The document recommends the use of pharmacological therapy or direct hair removal methods for women suffering from hirsutism. The authors conclude that further scientific research is required to develop recommendations for the treatment of hair loss in post-menopausal women.
