Estrace Cream .01 to face to prevent wrinkles

Does anybody know anything about applying estrace cream (estriodol) to the face? My dermatologist prescribed it in order to prevent wrinkles. I noticed that once I applied it to my face (very small amount) that I slept the entire night and had only two hot flashes that day (typically they occur every 45 minutes). I am 9 mos. post op.

{36 years old-no ovaries/no uterus surgical menopause}

Is applying this small amount as dangerous as using hrt?
How much gets absorbed (systemically)?

I heard that about using Premarin. Saw it on a show and the woman was in her 60"s and didn't have any wrinkles. Said her dermotolgist had told her to use it on her face.

I am more concerned with the associated health risks than the wrinkles at this point. I am concerned with absorption- given the reduction I experienced in hot flashes and insomnia.

It basically worked so well at reducing my symptoms (hot flashes, insomnia) that I got worried about how much was entering my system.
