Hormone Therapy Q & A
What is a hormone imbalance?
Hormone imbalance occurs when certain hormones, such as testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, or thyroid hormone, within your body are too low or too high. Hormone problems that can lead to:
- Unwanted weight gain
- Reduced muscle mass
- Decreases in bone density
- A low sex drive
- Poor vaginal health
- Increased cancer risks
- Hair loss
- Hot flashes and other menopause symptoms
If you experience any of these symptoms, a practitioner at Celebrity Medi Spa completes a simple blood test to determine if hormone levels are within a healthy range.
Why does hormone imbalance occur?
Numerous factors contribute to hormone imbalance. Examples include:
- Increased age in men and women
- Menopause in women
- Pregnancy and childbirth
- Having ovaries removed
- Thyroid disorders
Men tend to have reductions in testosterone with increasing age, and women can experience low estrogen and progesterone levels during and after menopause. Women are more likely than men to experience hypothyroidism or low thyroid levels.
What is hormone therapy?
Hormone therapy involves numerous treatments that restore hormones to a normal range, reduce unpleasant symptoms, and help you look and feel years younger. Examples of hormone treatments at Celebrity Medi Spa include:
Your provider might recommend you take synthetic hormones in pill form to increase certain hormones within your body.
Hormone patches remain on your skin to slowly release hormones into your bloodstream. Your practitioner lets you know how often to wear patches and replace them.
Your provider carefully implants hormone pellets just beneath your skin for a slow, steady hormone release. You’ll periodically receive new implants, which is a minimally-invasive procedure with no downtime.
Topical creams containing hormones are also available. Be sure to follow your provider’s instructions when using them.
To boost estrogen and relieve symptoms of menopause, such as vaginal dryness, your practitioner may recommend vaginal creams, rings, or suppositories that slowly release estrogen into your body.
Which hormone treatment is right for me?
It’s important to discuss the pros and cons of various hormone therapies with your provider at Celebrity Medi Spa to determine which one is right for you. The best choice considers your overall health, hormone levels, symptoms, and preferences.
