Hormone Optimization

Imbalances in hormone levels can be caused by a variety of factors such as the natural aging process and a thyroid that isn’t functioning properly. While there are conventional hormone replacement therapies, many of these can have uncomfortable side effects and are often not easily recognized by the body. At Advanced Wellness Institute, we offer bio-identical hormone optimization to restore natural balance of your hormone levels using bio-compatible therapies.  We offer topical, injectable and pellet hormone therapy.

General Questions

What Causes Hormone Imbalance?

While hormone imbalances are typical in women and men who are experiencing menopause and andropause, it is also common for younger patients to experience imbalances as a result of overactive or underactive thyroids or other factors.

In addition to general fatigue and loss of energy, hormone imbalances can cause a variety of symptoms, including:

  • Night sweats
  • Increased bleeding or spotting during menstruation
  • Insomnia
  • Loss of libido
  • Mood instability
  • Short-term memory loss
  • Inability to focus
  • Dry skin
  • At Advanced Wellness Institute, we offer bio-identical hormone optimization therapy to safely and effectively restore testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, and growth hormone levels in your body without the uncomfortable side effects that are often experienced with synthetic hormone therapies
What are Bioidentical Hormones?

For restoring your hormones to optimal levels, bio-identical hormones are currently the closest thing to matching the natural hormones found in your body. Bio-identical hormones match your natural hormones molecule for molecule and act the same way that your actual hormones do, creating gentle treatment that is easily processed by your body. Derived from ingredients that are found in nature, bio-identical optimization delivers adequate amounts of hormones to where they are needed in the body, restoring normal hormone levels for the long term with regular treatment.

Am I a Good Candidate for Bio-identical Hormone Optimization?

Your smoother, tighter skin can last for up to six months, and with regular treatment and a good skincare regimen, your visible signs of aging can be effectively managed for the long term. Results may vary from patient to patient, and multiple treatment sessions may be necessary in order to achieve your aesthetic goals. During your consultation, a treatment plan will be tailored to your specific skin care needs and goals.

How Long Will My Results Last?

Results may vary, and we will advise you during your consultation on how long the duration of treatment may last as well as when you should return to our office for additional therapy.

How do you administer hormone replacement?

You have options for hormone replacement.  We offer topical, injectible and pellet therapy as ways for you to receive your hormones.  If you have not been on hormone replacement, we ususally start with topical or injectible until your blood levels achieve our goals and then pellets are an option.  If you are already on  hormone replacement,  we will continue your current dose and form and adjust based on bloodwork results.
