You might have already heard about bioidentical hormone therapy and how it can elevate testosterone levels in men or optimize progesterone levels and other essential hormones in women. You might also know that the treatment is considered very natural by many professionals and patients. To learn more about the therapy and its benefits, read on or reach out to us at Illume Aesthetics. We’re your local provider of bioidentical hormone therapy in Ashland, OR.
What is bioidentical hormone therapy used for?
Both women and men can benefit a great deal from the therapy, and it can have lasting effects that may be life-changing for a patient. Many benefits come as a result of improving or optimizing hormone levels. Today, bioidentical hormone therapy has many different applications, including:
- Addressing low-T in men
- Increasing sexual drive and sexual function in men
- Reducing the symptoms of postmenopause in women
- Improving muscle mass and bone density, as well as possibly sleep
- Preventing further hair thinning or further weight gain
- Improving other symptoms associated with hormonal imbalances
- Improving the conditions that can cause or contribute to certain mental health or sleep problems
You or perhaps your partner could see some of those benefits of bioidentical hormone therapy. There are other benefits of the therapy too, like how there’s very little downtime after the procedure, and there may be even more potential benefits depending on the patient’s physiology and health.
Is bioidentical hormone therapy safe?
Bioidentical hormones are clinically identical to the hormones the human body produces naturally. Bioidentical hormones are made from plant estrogens and are used in bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, as opposed to traditional hormone replacement therapy. In the traditional hormone replacement therapy, the hormones used are made from other sources or synthetic hormones. Many professionals and patients consider bioidentical hormones quite natural compared to these other hormones, so many of these people are more comfortable with bioidentical hormone therapy over traditional therapy.
Also, bioidentical hormones likely aren’t any less safe than traditional hormone replacement therapy hormones. The same risks and benefits likely apply, so patients can expect significant improvements to and even the optimization of their hormonal levels. One of our professionals here at Illume Aesthetics will tell you more about what you can expect from the therapy with us!
How long does it take for bioidentical hormone therapy to work?
As with any other form of therapy, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy takes some time to work, but when it starts to work, the benefits can be life-changing. Typically, it will take about one to three weeks before you start seeing improvements, and after about eight weeks, you’ll experience the full effects of the benefits.
The dosage of the hormone you need is a factor in your treatment. At Illume Aesthetics, we’ll absolutely make sure you get the right dosage for you and your needs so you can benefit quickly and effectively, but also safely.
