Restore Balance and Harmony

Restore the delicate balance of hormones within your body with Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy at Laser Skin & Wellness. Our doctors will provide you with a customized hormone replacement therapy designed to restore your body to optimal function, helping you to feel healthier and happier. With decades of experience treating patients, our expertise is second to none.

What is Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy uses identical forms of hormones that are naturally found in your body. These are utilized along the same metabolic pathways as the naturally produced hormones in your body. What’s great about these hormones is that they have fewer side effects when compared with synthetic ones. Usually, a blend of natural hormones works better than high doses of a single hormone.

What Does Age Have to do With Hormonal Imbalances?

Hormonal imbalances are possible at a younger age from exposure to toxins, excess fat, and if hormones have not matured properly. As we age, we often experience a myriad of symptoms such as chronic fatigue, difficulty sleeping, decreased sex drive, as well as weight gain due to declining hormones. Oftentimes, hormone signals decline and metabolism slows down, leading to excess fat storage which compounds the problem further. Menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes and vaginal dryness are also associated with hormonal changes.

How Do I Know If I Have a Hormonal Imbalance?

Testosterone, pregnenolone, progesterone, estrogen, DHEA, and cortisol start to decline as we age. Bioidentical hormones replicate these hormones to limit health risks like an adverse reaction to the hormone pills. Andropause in men and menopause in women are very common causes of hormone imbalance. Cortisol excess and growth hormone decline are also evaluated. Fasting insulin is also tested.

What Can be Done to Solve Hormonal Imbalances?

Hormone therapy of the above-listed hormones includes thyroid, insulin, as well as Vitamin D treatments. Menopausal hormone therapy or estrogen therapy is a popular form of hormone therapy for pre and postmenopausal women. Combination hormone therapy may include bioidentical hormone replacements such as estrogen pills or shots of hormone replacement. With this treatment, you now have an option to fight the effects of aging and hormone imbalance.

What are the Symptoms of Hormonal Imbalances?

Your hormone levels control a wide variety of important biomechanical processes making the symptoms of hormone imbalance range from loss of vigor and fatigue, to even more serious health risks.

Hormone Imbalances can Lead to the Following Health Issues:

  • Loss of libido
  • Weight gain
  • Tiredness and chronic fatigue
  • Night sweats
  • Hot flashes
  • Memory loss
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Bone demineralization
  • Changes in mood
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • High blood pressure
  • Feelings of anxiety and depression
  • High cholesterol
  • Blood clots

What to Expect From Hormone Replacement Therapy

Laser Skin & Wellness patients will undergo a complete evaluation and testing. If a hormone imbalance is indicated, a customized dosage of bio-identical progesterone, estradiol/estriol, testosterone, or DHEA may be administered. Other hormones such as cortisol, Vitamin D, and growth hormone can also be replenished. All of our patients are carefully monitored during hormone therapy and will be required to have their hormone levels checked every three to six months. Our doctors may also work with you to help you make diet and lifestyle changes that support your program.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is hormone replacement therapy safe?

While hormone replacement can effectively alleviate symptoms associated with hormone imbalance, such as hot flashes and mood swings, it also carries potential risks. However, its safety profile varies depending on individual health characteristics-- candidates must have thorough discussions with Laser Skin to ensure their health.

How long can you take hormone replacement therapy?

The duration of hormone replacement therapy depends on the reason for treatment, individual health considerations, and treatment goals. In some cases, HRT may be used short-term to manage symptoms during perimenopause or menopause transition, typically for a few years.

What are the side effects of hormone replacement therapy?

Common side effects include bloating, breast tenderness, mood swings, headaches, and vaginal bleeding. These side effects often occur during the initial stages of treatment or when there are adjustments to the dosage or type of hormones used and will diminish over time as the body adjusts to the hormone therapy.

What are the signs that you need hormone replacement therapy?

The starting hormone replacement therapy usually occurs after the presence of hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, low libido, fatigue, and difficulty sleeping are detected. These symptoms often occur during perimenopause or menopause but can also be indicative of other hormonal imbalances at different stages of life.

Will hormone replacement therapy make you gain weight?

Weight changes experienced during hormone replacement can vary widely among individuals and may depend on factors such as hormone dosage, type of hormones used, individual metabolism, and lifestyle factors such as diet and exercise.
