Bioidentical Hormones – What You Must Know!

Bioidentical Hormones

Feeling a little less full of life than you once did? Just not feeling your normal self? Sometimes, as we age, our hormonal balances shift and it becomes harder to get up and go each day. If you want to reclaim some of that spark, consider bioidentical hormones.

In addition to skin care and medical spa therapies, we at Skintastic are proud to offer bioidentical hormone pellet therapy. This innovative new procedure can give you the bounce in your step that you miss—and it’s all natural!

What Are Bioidentical Hormones?

Bioidentical hormones are constructed in a laboratory setting but use biological compounds (usually obtained from soy or a similar plant product) to create hormones with exactly the same chemical structure as those produced in your own body—there’s nothing synthetic about them. Bioidentical hormone therapies can treat symptoms of menopause, low libido, low energy, or emotional well-being. Hormones like progesterone, estriadol, and testosterone can be administered based on your body’s unique needs to help you feel at your best again.

How Our Bioidentical Hormone Pellet Therapy Works

Our pellet therapy reintroduces hormones to the body as plant-based hormone pellets placed just below the skin’s surface. The pellets are always located in an inconspicuous place and are time-released, so that you are guaranteed a steady supply of the supplement. The treatment takes only about five minutes and is painless for most people.

When to Choose Bioidentical Hormone Replacement

Bioidentical hormone therapies are only effective if the causes of your symptoms can be related directly to hormone levels. When you come in for a consultation here at Skintastic, we’ll test for a range of essential hormones to determine the balance that will work best for you.

There is some concern that supplementing your naturally produced hormones can further affect the body’s hormone production, so that you slowly produce less of your own. With careful monitoring, we can be sure that the therapy supplies only what your body needs—so that there’s no excess to influence your endocrine system’s production.
