Özet

Background: The biomechanical and histological effects of topical estriol in normal rat skin are not clearly defined, although several favourable effects of estrogens have been suggested, especially in the postmenopausal period. Our goal was to determine whether estrogens have any such effects on skin histology and biomechanical properties in an experimental rat model.
