Hormone replacement - Auveau
What is Bioidentical hormonal replacemnt therapy (BHRT)?
BHRT is a way of replacing the bodies hormones in the same molecular form that men and women lose production of over their lifetime.
Auveau’s BHRT of choice – EvexiPEL®, offers a natural alternative to synthetic hormone replacement therapies, subcutaneous bio-identical hormone replacement therapy utilizes bio-identical hormones derived from natural, plant-based substances. Unlike synthetic hormones, the molecular structure of the bio-identical hormones – testosterone and/or estrogen is human identical. Since they are derived from nature, plant-based hormones metabolize in the body, just the way nature intended.
Chrissy Gray Lim, PA-C and an EvexiPEL Certified Provider, does more than implant hormones! She takes an integrated approach to complete hormone therapy. To help ensure patients receive optimum results, EvexiPEL® recruits and trains only the best of the best medical practitioners who are committed to getting to the root of patient’s health issues – not simply treating symptoms.
BHRT – a solution for both men and women?
BHRT is a type of hormone therapy that uses hormones that are structurally identical to the substances as they naturally occur in your body. Therefore it’s the only solution that has been favorited by both men and women going through the aging process and dealing with hormonal imbalance!
What are the symptoms of a hormone imbalance?
It’s normal for your hormones to gradually start declining as you get older. In some cases, chronic issues, like thyroid or gland disorders, can also cause you to experience hormone imbalance issues.
The more common causes of hormonal balance tend to produce the following symptoms in both men and women:
- Unexplained weight gain or weight loss
- Poor sleep
- Brittle or weak bones
- Irritability and anxiety
- Long-term fatigue without reason
- Lowered sex drive
- Very dry skin or skin rashes
- Unexplained or excessive sweating
- Changes in sensitivity to cold and heat
A few more specific symptoms often experienced by women include:
- Vaginal dryness
- Bone loss
- Breast tenderness
- Deepening of the voice
- Irregular/heavy/painful periods
- Thinning or brittle hair
Some common red flags for men dealing with hormonal issues include:
- The inability to achieve and maintain an erection
- Changes in blood pressure
- Memory loss
- Brain fog
- Longer recovery times from injuries
Chrissy and the team at Auveau specialize in treating hormone imbalances with the innovative bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Your BHRT plan begins with a comprehensive blood panel to determine the severity of your hormone imbalance. After analyzing your blood specimen, you can often get started on BHRT rather quickly.
BHRT involves implanting pellets, typically into your upper buttocks — you’re thoroughly numbed ahead of time. These tiny pellets deliver small amounts of hormones directly to your bloodstream as needed, so your hormone levels gradually become more stable (and stay that way).
The symptoms of hormone imbalance can be frustrating to experience, but bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT, may help patients live a normal life. The method of hormone therapy offered at Skin Savvy is customized for each patient to promote optimized BHRT benefits for each patient. BHRT patients report numerous physical, emotional and mental health benefits.
Because BHRT pellets deliver hormones that structurally are nearly identical to the hormones your body produces, the treatment starts working rather quickly. You should start noticing that your hormone imbalance side effects are gradually improving in just a few weeks, with continuing benefits day after day.
Chrissy and the team at Skin Savvy typically want to evaluate your blood levels again after two to three months of being on your BHRT treatment plan. They can adjust your BHRT treatment as needed.
In most cases, BHRT pellets provide optimal benefits for up to about five or six months before you need to have new pellets implanted. Continuing to stay on top of your bioidentical hormone therapy plan from Skin Savvy decreases your risk of future hormonal imbalance issues.
