Achieve Your Summer Wellness Goals with Hormone Replacement Therapy

Hormone fluctuations are a natural part of aging, yet for many, they bring a variety of challenging symptoms that can significantly impact daily life. Men and women may experience symptoms such as fatigue, mood swings, weight gain, loss of muscle mass, decreased libido, and in women, menopausal symptoms like hot flashes and vaginal dryness. Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) at Thrive Wellness and Aesthetics offers a promising solution. Utilizing bioidentical hormones, HRT helps to restore hormonal balance, easing these symptoms and improving the overall quality of life for aging individuals in Mt. Kisco, NY, and the surrounding communities. Discover more about Hormone Replacement Therapy and if you are a candidate for treatment.

What Is Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is a wellness treatment that addresses the effects of decreasing hormonal levels in aging men and women. At Thrive Wellness and Aesthetics in Mt. Kisco, NY, HRT includes the use of bioidentical hormones. These hormones are chemically identical to those the human body naturally produces and are administered through pellet therapy. This method involves a small pellet that is inserted under the skin, releasing hormones directly into the bloodstream, offering more efficient and consistent hormonal support compared to traditional methods like pills, patches, or creams.

Can Hormone Replacement Therapy Benefit?

HRT is particularly beneficial for menopausal women and men experiencing low testosterone, commonly referred to as low T. Women undergoing menopause can find relief from symptoms like hot flashes, mood swings, decreased libido, and vaginal dryness, through systemic estrogen therapy, also known as menopausal hormone therapy. For men, testosterone pellets can help combat weight gain, muscle loss, and other symptoms related to low T, improving overall quality of life.

What Is the Hormone Replacement Therapy Process?

The process begins with a simple blood test at Thrive Wellness and Aesthetics to evaluate the patient’s current hormone levels. Based on these results, a customized blend of hormones—typically estrogen, testosterone, and possibly progesterone—is formulated into pellets. During the treatment, patients receive a local anesthetic at the insertion site, usually the flank or hip. A small incision is made, and the pellet is placed just under the skin. This pellet then dissolves naturally over time, seamlessly integrating into the body without leaving any residue.

How Long Will Hormone Replacement Therapy Last?

The effects of a single HRT session using pellet therapy can last between 3 to 5 months. As the bioidentical hormones dissolve gradually, patients often notice a steady improvement in their symptoms. Women may experience fewer menopausal symptoms, such as hot flashes and vaginal dryness, while both men and women might see enhancements in energy levels, mental clarity, and overall physical health. Regular follow-up treatments are recommended to maintain optimal hormone levels and continue the benefits of your treatment plan.
