What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy and How Can it Help You?
Aging is never a fun process. Wrinkles start to appear, bones start to creek and things start malfunctioning. But it’s 2018! We have modern technology and science on our side. And with that we can replace what’s broken and depleting! Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is a treatment that does just that: replaces the hormones that are starting to diminish as you age.
Did you know that hormones help you prevent disease and overall improve your quality of life? So when they start to decrease, aging accelerates and life gets a little lower in quality. BHRT can reverse these effects. It can reduce your risk of heart disease and, for women, reduce the risk of breast cancer.
You may be wondering if you need BHRT treatment.
In fact, there are many symptoms to hormone depletion. For women, some include hot flashes, sweating, difficulty sleeping, depressive mood, fatigue, weight gain, loss of muscle mass, and diminished thickness and fullness of scalp hair and more. For men, common symptoms are diminished sexual desire and performance, loss of morning erections, fatigue and depression, weight gain, obesity and loss of muscle mass. Are you checking the boxes for any of those symptoms?
You can get Bioidentical Hormone Therapy Replacement done at Bailey Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Centre’ (BCSVC)! BCSVC houses a team of professionals that specialize in hormone replacement. And we can walk you through what that process will look like.
Before any work is done, you will have a complementary consultation consisting of a questionnaire and blood work. Once the blood work is in, you will meet with a doctor to review a plan for your hormone replacement. If you decide to proceed with the procedure, they will place the pellets, which are about the size of a grain of rice, under the skin. There are no stiches involved, just a bandage removed by you! And you can expect results in 2-3 weeks with a follow-up visit after 4 weeks. BHRT is non-invasive and fast acting.
Bailey Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Centre’ treats women and men of a wide range of ages.
Women who are postmenopausal, women who have had hysterectomies, men whose testosterone has tanked. Hormone depletion is a very common and normal thing to happen as you age, and doing BHRT is a safe and effective alternative to hot flashes and low sex drive. Hormones play a large role in your overall health and when they are running low they can have drastic effects. If you identified with the symptoms listed above, considering Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy may be a smart choice for you.
