Bioidentical Hormone Therapy

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. With any cause, when you have a hormone imbalance, you may notice:

  • Weight gain
  • Low libido
  • Hot flashes
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Depression or irritability
  • Pain during intercourse

Decreased hormone levels can even lead to a loss of muscle mass and a decrease in your breast fullness. No matter how minor or how severe your hormone imbalance symptoms may be, you can get relief with bioidentical hormone therapy.

How is a hormone imbalance treated?

Chrissy and the team at Skin Savvy specialize in treating hormone imbalances with the innovative BioTE hormone therapy plan. 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 BioTE rather quickly.

BioTE hormone therapy 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).

When does bioidentical hormone therapy start working?

Because BioTE 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 BioTE treatment plan. They can adjust your BioTE treatment as needed.

In most cases, BioTE 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.
