Hormone Replacement Therapy Q & A

What is hormone replacement therapy?

Hormone replacements are built structurally similar to the hormones your body makes naturally. Hormones are chemical messengers that control many of your biological functions, including your metabolism and sexual function. Due to underlying medical conditions, your body may not produce enough hormones, resulting in a hormone imbalance.

Women also experience a hormone decline during the transition to menopause, the end of their child-bearing years when their period stops.

For men, aging can slow down the production of testosterone. Low testosterone (low T) can affect many aspects of a man’s physical, mental, and sexual health.

Glow Anti-Aging Center and Medical Spa uses hormone pellets to supplement natural hormone levels for men and women. Treatment with hormones can revitalize your energy levels and reduce moderate to severe symptoms a hormone imbalance can cause.

When should I consider hormone replacement therapy?

You should schedule a diagnostic evaluation at Glow Anti-Aging Center and Medical Spa if you have symptoms of a hormone imbalance that you can’t manage on your own. The symptoms can include:

  • Insomnia
  • Hot flashes
  • Low libido
  • Night sweats
  • Increased belly fat
  • Joint aches and muscle pain

Women may also develop vaginal dryness and irritation, while men might lose muscle mass and experience erectile dysfunction (ED).

The team assesses your hormone levels through a simple, in-office blood test to determine if hormone therapy is right for you.

What is involved in hormone replacement therapy?

The hormones the Glow Anti-Aging Center and Medical Spa team uses in your treatment are in pellet form.

Unlike oral pills or transdermal patches, hormone pellets deliver a steady stream of hormones into your body. The team places the pellet just under the surface of your skin during a quick, in-office procedure. One placement lasts up to three months, so you only need to get a replacement pellet three or four times a year.

As your hormones level out, you should notice a reduction in your symptoms. The team monitors your hormone levels over time to ensure your therapy works well.
