Efforts aimed at anti aging for men and women have been evolving and improving for longer than many patients have been alive. Starting in the 1960s, physicians understood that diminished levels of certain hormones in both men and women were associated with many of the most unwanted symptoms of aging, such as decreased physical prowess and sex drive. That was the birth of hormone replacement therapy (HRT).
Today, bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) has overtaken synthetic hormone treatments due to a dramatically reduced risk of adverse side effects and generally better outcomes. Anti aging for women, for example, is often accomplished via plant-derived hormones such as estrogen and testosterone that are, as the acronym BHRT implies, biologically identical to the hormones naturally found in humans. The result is that a patient’s body reacts to the hormone just as if it were made by the body, rather than possibly reacting against something that it wouldn’t normally encounter.
Revitalize Anti Aging Centers Offer BHRT for Men and Women
Our anti aging centers offer bio-identical hormone replacement therapy for men and women, which can improve or eliminate many of the symptoms associated with aging. Patients who undergo BHRT for hormones such as testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone report many benefits within a short time after the first treatment, including more energy, an enhanced sex drive, and a better mood.
Our preferred method of providing BHRT involves the use of sustained-release pellets that are injected under the skin a few times a year during an office visit, requiring no further action by the patient. That means there is no reason to worry about the hormones being accidentally ingested by children or pets nor about getting the dosage wrong or forgetting to take the hormones on schedule. However, if patients prefer to take BHRT in another form, gels, creams, injections, and pill versions of many of the treatments are also available.
