Benefits of Customized Hormone Therapy

Mar 19, 2014 | Blog, Skin Care

Hormone_TherapyCustomized hormone therapy is rapidly rising in popularity, especially in women over 30. The changes in our bodies when we get older are a direct effect from changes in our hormone levels, which many blood tests fail to specifically pinpoint. The North Scottsdale Laser and Skin Clinic offers a solution to our patients, by administering a salivary hormone test to decide what your body needs to make you feel your best. If you’re not feeling quite like yourself, take a look at this list of signs and symptoms that may prove hormone therapy to be beneficial:

  • Thinning Hair and Skin: External changes like loss of volume of your hair and skin can be linked to hormonal changes.
  • Abnormal Sleeping Patterns: The quantity and quality of your sleeping patterns can cause suppressed ovulation and infertility.
  • Decreased Libido: Sex drive usually decreases with age because of hormonal imbalances, especially in women.
  • Mood Swings: Extreme happiness one minute and experiencing depression the next minute is a common sign that your body is undergoing mid-life changes.
  • Hot Flashes: Age-related night sweats and bouts of hot flashes during the day are especially uncomfortable, especially in the Arizona heat.
  • Breast Tenderness: Sadly, this is a common symptom related to PMS, menopause and other hormonal fluctuations.
  • Lack of Concentration, Sharpness or Memory: As you age, you may observe that you’re not as sharp as you once were. This is because your menstrual cycles are becoming irregular due to perimenopause.

Our goal is to restore the energy and vitality you once possessed. Once we review the results from your salivary hormone test, we will design a hormone therapy treatment customized specifically for you. We might recommend a combination of acupuncture, supplements and natural herbs, or a compounded natural hormone treatment might be best for your body. The North Scottsdale Laser and Skin Care Clinic can help you with hormone therapy to help you feel better and live a happier and higher quality life. Visit our website to schedule an appointment with one of our friendly and experienced physicians today!
