Hormones

In recent years, aesthetic medicine has significantly advanced, offering individuals many innovative treatments and therapies to enhance their natural beauty. One such groundbreaking option that has gained immense popularity in aesthetics is BHRT or bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy.
With its ability to address hormonal imbalances and improve overall well-being, BHRT has become a game-changer for men and women seeking a more effective solution to hormone imbalances. The Aesthetic Edit offers clients a curated BHRT experience to ensure maximum symptom relief.

What is Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) involves using chemically identical hormones to those naturally found in the human body.
These hormones, such as estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone, are derived from plant sources and compounded into custom-made formulations.
Hormone levels decline earlier in people who lead high-stress lifestyles. They also decline naturally after childbirth and in perimenopause, which can begin in the 30s for some women.
Low hormone levels can cause symptoms like aggressive aging in the skin, hair, and nails, as well as hot flashes, mood swings, night sweats, and decreased libido.
BHRT aims to restore hormone levels to their optimal range to alleviate symptoms associated with hormonal imbalances. Unlike traditional hormone replacement therapy (HRT), which uses synthetic hormones that closely resemble but aren’t identical to those found in the body.

The Benefits of BHRT:

How Hormone Replacement Therapy Can Improve Your Well-being
If you’re experiencing symptoms like fatigue, mood swings, or low libido, bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) could be the solution to restore balance in your body. By restoring hormone balance, this therapy helps combat feelings of fatigue and lethargy. It also improves mood stability, reducing irritability and anxiety associated with hormonal imbalances.
Hormonal changes can dampen sexual desire and impact intimacy. BHRT replenishes diminishing hormones like testosterone and estrogen, enhancing libido and improving overall sexual satisfaction. By rebalancing these essential hormones, BHRT can help reignite your passion for physical intimacy.
By addressing hormonal imbalances through BHRT, individuals may experience many benefits that enhance their overall well-being—from increased energy levels to improved mental health and sexual function.

Who is a Good Candidate for BHRT?

Ideal Candidates for BHRT
BHRT, or bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy, is a treatment that can help alleviate common symptoms associated with hormonal imbalances. While it may be beneficial for many individuals, there are specific characteristics that make someone an ideal candidate for this therapy.
  • Women experiencing menopause: BHRT can effectively manage the symptoms of menopause, such as hot flashes, night sweats, and mood swings.
  • Individuals with low libido: Hormonal imbalances can negatively impact sexual desire. BHRT aims to restore hormone levels and improve libido.
  • Those struggling with weight gain: Hormonal changes can disrupt metabolism and lead to unwanted weight gain. BHRT helps regulate hormones and support healthy weight management.
Factors Considered in Eligibility
Before considering undergoing BHRT, several factors are taken into consideration:
  1. Age: Typically recommended for individuals over 30 years old experiencing signs of hormonal imbalance.
  2. Overall health status: A thorough examination ensures there are no underlying medical conditions that could hinder the effectiveness of the treatment or pose a risk.
  3. Previous treatments: It is essential to disclose past hormone replacement therapies or any other medications taken recently to determine if BHRT is appropriate.
We will begin with a Symptom Check List and a lab slip to have blood work done, which will determine your hormone levels. Once your doctor reviews and determines whether you are a candidate, we will schedule a consultation and insertion appointment.

BHRT vs. Traditional Hormone Replacement Therapy

BHRT uses hormones identical in structure and function to those naturally produced by the body.
In contrast, traditional HRT uses synthetic hormones that may not closely match the body’s natural hormones . Research suggests that both BHRT and traditional HRT can effectively relieve menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, and mood swings. However, some studies indicate that bio-identical hormones may have fewer side effects than synthetic ones.
One advantage of BHRT is its ability to be customized based on an individual’s specific hormonal needs. A healthcare providers can tailor bio-identical hormones’ dosage and delivery method according to a person’s unique physiology and symptoms.This customization allows for a more personalized approach to hormone replacement therapy.
