Hormone therapy is a treatment for aging men and women who are experiencing the effects of hormone loss. Once you reach middle age, your body stops producing the number of hormones that it did during your youth and younger adulthood. This can cause changes in your sexual functioning, sleep patterns, energy levels, and more.
Women lose female sex hormones like estrogen and progesterone during a stage in middle age called menopause. Men experience a similar reduction in testosterone, a male sex hormone, that can also cause symptoms.
To alleviate symptoms of menopause and the male equivalent, S. Aesthetics.MD offers bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). The hormones used for treatment are made from plants and are identical to those that your body makes.
There are several ways to deliver hormones to your body for hormone replacement therapy. Your provider at S. Aesthetics.MD helps you choose the right mode of hormone therapy for your lifestyle and preferences. Your choices include:
Pellets, like testosterone pellets, are about the size of a grain of rice. Your physician places a hormone pellet beneath your skin, where it slowly releases hormones into your system for about six months at a time.
Topical creams and gels are available as a mode of hormone therapy. You apply your topical hormone product to the skin on your arm, shoulder, thigh, or abdomen, where your skin absorbs it within minutes.
You may wish to explore hormone therapy if you notice symptoms of hormone loss. For women, they include:
For men, the symptoms of low testosterone that hormone therapy can treat include:
If these and other issues affect your self-confidence and impede your lifestyle, your provider at S. Aesthetics.MD can help you decide if hormone therapy is the best course of action. Hormone therapy can be especially helpful for those who start losing their hormones early on in middle age.
