HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY

At Vita Aesthetics we believe aging should be effortless, and with our hormone replacement  therapy, this goal is definitely within reach.

As we age, our bodies go through a myriad of internal and external fluctuations. Reduced hormonal activity is among these changes, and that can lead to profound adverse effects on your physical and mental wellbeing. For this reason, many people turn to hormone replacement therapy in an attempt to restore their hormonal balance and reduce the side effects associated with lower levels of certain hormones in the body.

 

If you think that you might be a candidate for hormone replacement therapy in Gallatin, TN, but you're not familiar with the treatment then you've come to the right place. At Vita Aesthetics, we believe in treating the whole patient. In order to do that you'll start by meeting with Jessie Pernell, NP-C, our Nurse Practitioner who specializes in hormone replacement therapy.  During your consultation she'll also do a physical exam and send labs to obtain a baseline for treatment. If you're a candidate, she will customize a treatment plan that best suits your individual needs.

 

Below, you'll find a little information about hormone replacement therapy. However, the best way to know if you're a candidate for Hormone Replacement Therapy is to schedule a consultation and exam in our office.  

What is Hormone Replacement Therapy and Why is it Important?

We know that hormones control and regulate most of the basic functions of our body. They function as the internal communication system of the body that links cells throughout the body. They are responsible for coordinating every bodily function, such as growth, digestion, libido, and the immune system. Hence, when your hormones spiral out of control, even a touch, they can cause serious implications for your health and wellbeing. Hormone Replacement Therapy can help to reinstate your body to its best shape.

Hormone replacement therapy is simply a medical treatment aimed at replacing the declining levels of hormones the body is no longer capable of producing and protect health in the long run. In addition, it can relieve various symptoms related to the period of menopause in women, such as vaginal discomfort, hot flashes, and bone loss, etc. In men, it can help to restore various bodily functions, such as sexual drive, reproductive function, maintaining healthy bones and muscle, etc.

Hormone Imbalance in Women

As women age, they eventually lose their fertility naturally. Menopause, the physical change that marks the end of a woman’s fertility, results in irregular periods as the ovaries stop producing eggs and reduced production of the hormones estrogen and progesterone. Unbalanced hormone levels can cause abnormal fatigue and lethargy, mood swings, weight gain, a reduction in sex drive, fertility issues, and much more. 

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) helps balance sex and adrenal hormones to provide health and wellness benefits to the body.

What to Look For in a Quality Treatment Protocol

Not all hormone treatments are created equally. In order for treatment to be safe and effective, the hormones must be administered as part of a quality treatment protocol that includes:

  • Treatment for all hormones affecting aging

  • Personalized dosages tailored to your exact needs

  • Safe delivery methods

  • Ongoing lab testing and monitoring

  • Oversight by a board-certified doctor

At Vita Aesthetics, our hormone therapy includes these safeguards and more. Using the results of lab tests and your description of your symptoms, we’ll work hard to optimize your hormone levels so you can look and feel your best. Unlike some treatment providers, we don’t just write you a prescription and abandon you. Instead, we will stay in close communication with you to make sure your treatment remains safe and effective. We are always available to answer questions and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment.
