Hormone Replacement Therapy – when you’re ready to feel like yourself again

Balance your hormones. Change your life.

The goal of hormone optimization is to assess your hormone levels to determine if they are imbalanced or low. We then develop a plan to replace and balance your hormones. Hormone levels deplete with aging and cause low energy, weight gain, mood swings, and low sex drive. Hormone replacement therapy relieves the symptoms almost immediately so you can live better.

When do I need hormone replacement therapy?

When do I need hormone replacement therapy?

Hormone levels often drop in both men and women in the 30s. By the mid 40s many find themselves navigating brain fog, loss of muscle mass, a lagging libido, and an overall feeling of “blah” from the decline of critical hormones including estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone (yes, women need testosterone, too!)

Women in menopause or peri-menopause weather a rollercoaster of hot flashes, vaginal dryness, weight gain, brain fog and dry, thinning skin; while men after 40 notice a significant drop in their vitality, including declining muscle mass, decreased sexual function, and disrupted sleep.

At RegenCen, we recommend hormone testing any time our patients are experiencing the symptoms associated with hormonal imbalances or depletions. With a simple blood draw, we can assess all of your sex hormones and thyroid.

Even though aging is inevitable, the physical and mental changes that come with it don’t have to feel so disruptive thanks to advancements in hormone replacement therapy. Our RegenCen providers are here to help you optimize your hormone levels so you can feel like yourself again-at any age.

Hormone Replacement Therapy

You CAN feel good as you age with hormonal optimization.

You don’t have to continue sliding downhill. If you’re not feeling like yourself, it’s not just you, or your lack of willpower or discipline.

Hormones influence almost everything. As they decline and change with age, the way you feel in your body changes, too. Don’t keep on living like a shadow of your former self – orgasms can be easy again and your skin, hair, and energy do bounce back.

Bioidentical hormones alleviate symptoms caused by decreased hormone production. But they don’t just help you feel better – hormones also have protective effects that impact longevity and overall health, including bone density, memory, balance, and heart health.

And getting started is easy – just set up a consultation in one of our Michigan or Florida regenerative medicine locations.

The benefits of testosterone replacement.

Testosterone is essential for optimal functioning in both men AND women. That’s right, women need optimal levels of testosterone, too!

The production of testosterone declines as we age, leaving men and women with less vitality than when they were younger.  With replacement of T to optimal levels, men and women report an increased sense of health and well-being, decreased fat, increased muscle mass, increased exercise tolerance, improved cognition and memory, better sexual function, improved skin tone, and many other rave-worthy benefits.

The biggest benefit for many people (both men and women) seems to be energy – it’s like being a younger, more energized version of yourself.

Estrogen & progesterone replacement benefits.

During peri-menopause (the decade that surrounds menopause) and after menopause, estrogen levels plummet. The initial symptoms of menopause are usually night sweats, hot flashes, vaginal dryness, mood disorders, weight gain and decreased sexual function. The long-term consequences are decreased bone mineral density or osteoporosis, increased body weight and increased risk of heart disease and stroke. Yes! Hormone replacement therapy decreases your risk of Alzheimer’s. So even if the annoying hot flashes and insomnia go away, you should still consider hormone replacement therapy for the long-term benefits.

Progesterone is used in conjunction with estrogen therapy and improves the quality of sleep and enhance memory and cognition.

What is the process of placing the pellets like?

The Biote® pellet placement process is relatively easy and takes only about 15 minutes.

The Biote® procedure is a straightforward process that involves the insertion of a Biote® pellet under the skin near the buttocks. Prior to insertion, a mild local anesthetic is used to numb the area, and the pellet is then inserted, with a small bandage applied to cover the insertion site.

The entire process typically takes just 15 minutes, with minimal downtime required for recovery. Although it is common to experience slight swelling and redness at the insertion site for a few days, these symptoms should not persist for long. Following the procedure, it is recommended to avoid strenuous activities for a few days, especially those that involve the lower body, to prevent any soreness in the insertion area.

It is also advisable to avoid baths and swimming, but showering is fine. Once the bandage is removed, you can resume your normal daily activities without any restrictions.
