Bio-Identical Hormones: What Are They?

Bio-Identical Hormones: What Are They?

Bio-Identical Hormones

If you haven’t felt like yourself lately but haven’t quite been able to put your finger on why, a hormone imbalance could be to blame. The good news, however, is that if your hormones are guilty of throwing you off your game, your issues and symptoms could be relieved significantly with professional bio-identical hormone therapies.

Hormone issues affect both men and women alike as hormone levels start to decline around our mid-30s to early 40s. And while this drop is natural and unavoidable, we can still help control how rapidly or smoothly this change occurs and how we adapt to its effects.

THE ISSUES

Ask yourself: Have you noticed a change in any of the following?

  • Decreased libido
  • Fatigue
  • Mood swings
  • Decreased concentration, brain fog and memory issues
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Decreased muscle mass
  • Menstrual cycles ending or becoming irregular
  • Thinning hair on both your head and body
  • Weight gain, especially around the midsection
  • Muscle weakness
  • Drier skin
  • Changes in body temperature such as hot flashes or night sweats

THE SKINTASTIC SOLUTION

Bio-identical hormone pellet therapy re-introduces the necessary hormones in the form of time-released, plant-based hormone pellets that are biologically identical to your own hormones and placed in an inconspicuous area just below the skin’s surface.

Specific hormones that bio-identical hormones aim to increase or balance include those tied to reproduction and youth such as estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, dehydroepiandrosterone, and adrenal hormones.

At your first Skintastic consultation for hormone analysis, we will test your current levels of essential hormones such as testosterone, estradiol and progesterone. Then, when you return for your first therapy, we will provide you a customized, optimal combination of bio-identical hormone supplements to suit your specific needs and deficiencies.

At Skintastic, we don’t just offer cosmetic procedures and treatments for the outside. We know that true beauty starts on the inside so we want our patients to feel younger and more energized through our comprehensive, wholistic wellness programs that include not only our bio-identical hormone therapy, but also our lifestyle education and customized weight management programs with our on-staff, in-house nutritionist.
