Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

What is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

middle aged manHormones are chemical messengers produced by your endocrine system that direct many body functions, including metabolism, mood, digestion, and libido. Any slight imbalance in hormone levels affects these normal body functions.

Hormone therapy is a form of treatment aimed at restoring hormone balance and improving health. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a more natural form of hormone therapy. 

Bioidentical hormones are created from plant chemicals found in soy and yams and have the same molecular structure as the hormones produced in your body. When used for hormone replacement therapy, bioidentical hormones act just like the hormones produced by your body.

What happens at a bioidentical hormone replacement therapy consultation?

Skin Med Spa is a full-service anti-aging practice that offers comprehensive general health assessments specific to your needs. 

During your bioidentical hormone replacement therapy consultation, your provider asks detailed questions about your symptoms, personal medical and family history, and then performs a physical exam.

To determine if a hormone imbalance is responsible for your symptoms, your provider at Skin Med Spa requests a comprehensive lab workup, which is conducted at the office. This includes labs that assess hormone levels and overall health. 

How is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy given?

Your anti-aging specialist at Skin Med Spa uses the information gathered from your general health assessment and labs to create your customized bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.

Your specialist provides your bioidentical hormone replacement therapy in a form that best suits your needs, such as:

  • Pill
  • Lotion
  • Patch
  • Gel
  • Shot

Skin Med Spa also offers BioTE® hormone pellet therapy for women and men. Hormone pellets are placed under your skin and deliver a steady stream of hormones to optimize balance.

Hormonal changes may be a normal part of the aging process, but there’s no need for you to accept the symptoms as normal. To schedule your bioidentical hormone replacement therapy consultation, call the office, or book online today.
