Introduction to Hormone Replacement Therapy

As we age, hormonal imbalance naturally occurs. Some key hormones in the body go down (estrogen for women; testosterone for men) which manifests as fatigue, brain fog, inability to lose weight, night sweats, and more.
At Sage Medical Aesthetics, we provide hormone replacement therapy (HRT) to keep your hormones in check and let you lead a better quality of life. So when you start to experience the onset of perimenopause, menopause, or andropause, HRT treats your symptoms best.

What Is Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Hormones in the body are responsible for a variety of important functions. They work together to regulate the body’s abilities to sleep, metabolize, manage stress, and maintain reproductive health, including sex drives and fertility.
With hormone replacement therapy (HRT), hormones that aid in keeping your body’s balance and health are replenished. HRT can be taken orally (pills), topically (patch), or vaginally (gel, IUD). Our Sage Medical Aesthetics experts will recommend the best route of the HRT, depending on your preference and current condition.

How Does Hormone Replacement Therapy Work?

At Sage Medical Aesthetics, hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a meticulously crafted solution for achieving hormonal balance. Our process begins with a detailed assessment, utilizing blood tests to identify any imbalances. We prioritize the use of bioidentical hormones, mirroring the body’s natural structures for seamless integration. Personalized treatment plans are then developed, considering administration methods such as oral medications, patches, injections, or pellet implants. Throughout the therapy, our healthcare professionals monitor your progress, making adjustments as needed to optimize results. HRT at Sage Medical Aesthetics goes beyond symptom relief, embracing a holistic approach that incorporates lifestyle factors to enhance overall well-being.

Benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy

Alleviated Symptoms

Those who are experiencing perimenopause (when menstrual periods decrease) will benefit greatly as HRT aids in the transition to a menopausal state. You adjust well and are ready for the next phase of your life.

Balanced Hormone Levels

Hormonal imbalance usually shows itself as mood swings and other inefficiencies, such as lack of concentration, sudden weight gain/loss, and more. With HRT, you can live a much healthier quality of life.

Lower Risk of Anxiety and Depression

Hormonal imbalance also affects the anxiety levels of a person, which often leads to depression. Since HRT brings back balance, you also have more energy to be active while awake.

Maintained Reproductive Health

Reproductive health issues come when you hit your late 30’s–40’s. Loss of sex drive, unbalanced PH levels, or vaginal dryness may happen. HRT can help you return to your reproductive health’s natural state.

Better Sleep Quality

Menopausal women have a harder time falling asleep and even experience insomnia. HRT is recommended to improve sleep quality.
