Hormonal fluctuations are a fact of life — they’re normal for both women and men. But if aging has caused your hormone levels to spiral out of control, the resulting complications can feel far from normal. At Arijai Aesthetics, we truly believe everyone deserves to look, feel, and function their best, and for many aging adults, hormone therapy is essential to support overall wellness. So what exactly is hormone therapy and how does it help balance and rejuvenate the body? We’ve got the details below.
What Is Bioidentical Hormone Therapy?
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, also known as BHRT, is a widely used treatment designed to supplement endogenous hormone production and restore normal hormone levels. Bioidentical hormones are derived from plant sources and are created to have the same molecular structure as that of endogenously produced hormones.
Because bioidentical hormones are virtually indistinguishable from their endogenously produced counterparts, they fit seamlessly within the human endocrine system and elicit the same chemical responses from the body. These hormones are most commonly administered through topical cream application, injection, or via the insertion of pellets beneath the upper layer of the patient’s skin.
At Arijai Aesthetics, we administer bioidentical hormone therapy via custom-compounded, BioTe pellet insertion as this method of administration produces more consistent, reliable results. Because topically and orally administered hormone therapies require frequent reapplication, many patients find they struggle with constant up-and-down fluctuations in their hormone levels. However, by inserting a tiny pellet beneath the upper layer of the skin, we’re able to achieve a consistent hormone release on a 24/7 basis over an extended time period.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy: The Benefits of Hormone Optimization
Because the aging process causes a natural decline in your body’s normal production of critical hormones, supplementing endogenous hormone production with bioidentical, plant-sourced hormones can improve quality of life significantly.
Unlike synthetic hormones, which possess a different molecular structure than your endogenous hormones, bioidentical hormones mimic your natural hormones to the letter. Rather than eliciting a potentially negative reaction from the body over time as synthetic hormones do, bioidentical hormones work with the body’s endocrine system to alleviate symptoms of hormonal imbalance. This highly effective therapy can help reduce or eliminate a wide variety of symptoms associated with many common health conditions, including:
● Imbalanced thyroid hormones
● Low testosterone production
● Estrogen dominance
● Progesterone deficiency
● Perimenopausal, menopausal, and post-menopausal hormonal fluctuations
● Metabolic syndrome
Both the female and male bodies require specific ratios of critical hormones to function optimally. However, as aging takes its toll on the endocrine system, the levels of those hormones — estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, pancreatic hormones, thyroid hormones, etc. — naturally decline. This process begins as early your 30s and unfortunately, it only goes down from there. Even younger patients who struggle with declining hormone levels respond very well to bioidentical hormone therapy.
