Loss of Growth Hormone causes faster aging skin changes. Both epidermis and dermis are thinning, collagen and elastin levels decrease, and the cumulative impact of these changes leads to dryness and pruritus, wrinkles, and fragility, which increases the risk of skin trauma.
How effective is HRT at reversing these structural changes, and thus improving skin health?

How do the HGH effects on skin and hair come about in the first place?
The growth hormone is typically considered to be the most essential of all hormones (chemical messengers) in the body. One of its many roles is to stimulate the liver to release another chemical – Insulin Growth Factor 1. Together, these two hormones regulate a process called cellular regeneration – the reproduction of vital new cells that are needed to replace those that die off each day from the muscles, bones, internal organs, and yes, the hair and nails.
When a person is dealing with a GH deficiency, the level of cellular regeneration will decrease and all areas relying on a steady supply of new cells will suffer. The growth hormone is used to reverse this deficiency to allow the body the ability to rejuvenate itself through increased cellular reproduction.
