What is hormone replacement therapy?
Hormones help regulate the body's functions, and imbalances can be caused by many factors, including:
Because hormone imbalances can cause weight fluctuations, mood swings, low energy, changes in sex drive, and sexual performance, HRT can be beneficial for a patient’s quality of life.
How can HRT help you feel younger?
Because each patient will have different symptoms and therapeutic needs, the first step is for Dr. Thomas to assess your condition and recommend the best type of therapy possible to help you function and decrease the signs of aging.
When hormones are balanced, your brain and body will both feel better, and patients may see the following beneficial effects after HRT:
A reduction in fatigue
Hormone imbalances can increase signs of aging, including skin wrinkles, greying or thinning hair, and sagging skin. But these effects can be more than aesthetic. Patients with hormone issues may have decreased muscle mass and density, and reduced energy.
How can HRT make you look younger?
Hormones regulate many signs of aging. For example, the keratinocytes that modulate skin growth and structure are influenced by estrogen. Skin thickness is influenced by both estrogen and testosterone because they stimulate collagen production. Testosterone helps stimulate the skin’s sebum, allowing it to retain moisture, and changes in this hormone can result in thinning hair or hair loss.
We know that stress affects health as well, and since it can cause an increase in cortisol production, this can also affect hair loss. Increased stress levels in both men and women can produce excess cortisol, which is linked to hair loss at any age.
While hormone replacement therapy can help slow down these signs of aging, it can’t turn back the clock. That’s one of the reasons it is so crucial to speak to a doctor and have these hormones tested at your annual physical.
When a patient needs HRT, they typically need it every 3 – 6 months, depending on symptoms and how effective the treatment has been. A fitness, diet, and stress management routine are also helpful to ensure HRT is effective in helping patients look and feel their best possible.
