Bioidentical Hormones

Bioidentical Hormones

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, or BHRT, is a revolutionary development in the field of anti-ageing healthcare, and available to be prescribed by a qualified doctor at Elite Aesthetics in Greenhithe, Kent. We treat patients across the local area, including our home of Greenhithe, as well as Bromley, Dartford, Kings Cross, Kings Hill, Maidstone, Orpington, Sidcup and the surrounding areas.

BHRT is a course of hormone replacement therapy that is tailored perfectly to you, and is suitable for both men and women, to combat the physical and hormonal effects of the ageing process. Using a blood test to determine your hormone levels, we’ll prescribe a bespoke course of hormone treatment. BHRT treatment is unique as the hormones are bioidentical to those in the body, meaning they have been created to exactly mimic the hormones that are naturally produced. This helps to make the treatment safer and less likely to cause a reaction.

 

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy For Men

As we age, the levels in our hormone levels change drastically. This change is especially pronounced in women due to the effects of the menopause, but men also commonly experience changes in their mood, sexual performance, appearance and overall wellbeing as they age.

This is sometimes known as the andropause, and can leave many men feeling dissatisfied, unable to concentrate, with low mood, losing muscle mass and seeing their sexual satisfaction take a dip. All of these things can be detrimental to your overall health and happiness, which is why BHRT for men has been developed to help address hormonal imbalances caused by ageing, and help make you feel more confident and comfortable in your own skin as you age with grace.

 

BioIdentical Hormone Replacement Therapy For Women

The majority of women will experience menopause between the ages of 45 and 55, which comes with a whole host of complications and symptoms that can feel uncomfortable and be difficult to deal with. When we reach menopause, we experience a considerable drop in oestrogen, the hormone responsible for maintaining cardiovascular health, as well as bone health, the strength, structure and appearance of the skin and a variety of genitourinary symptoms.

This drop in oestrogen is the reason many menopausal and post menopausal women are more prone to experiencing skin ageing, hot flushes, night sweats, stress incontinence, vaginal laxity and dryness and osteoporosis, among other symptoms of menopause.

One of the most common symptoms of menopause that is highly underdiagnosed and doesn’t receive much, if any, attention in the mainstream media is GSM, or genitourinary symptoms of menopause. GSM refers to a whole host of symptoms of menopause that affect the genitourinary system, including the bladder and vagina. These symptoms include:

  • Vaginal laxity or looseness, decreasing sensation for both women and men during sex.
  • Vaginal dryness, leading to discomfort and difficulty during intimacy.
  • Dysparenuia, or painful sex.
  • Stress incontinence, including leaks when you run, jump, laugh, cough or lift heavy objects.
  • A drop in sex drive, and difficulty becoming aroused or reaching orgasm.

BHRT treatment helps to give women back control over their bodies during the menopause, by administering a bespoke formula of hormones. This helps to balance the hormone levels in the body and reduce the severity of the symptoms of menopause, including GSM, leaving you feeling confident, comfortable, and able to enjoy life as you please.

At Elite Aesthetics, we are deeply passionate about creating bespoke, medically advised healthcare solutions, something which is reflected in everything we do at the clinic.

How Does Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Work?

BHRT is a Hormone Replacement Therapy, which means it helps to replace hormone levels that have been lost due to ageing or the menopause.

BHRT treatment can help to replenish a variety of hormones in the body, each with different functions. As your treatment plan is completely tailored to you and your body, you don’t have to worry about having too much of one hormone or too little of another in your treatment plan.

Hormones carry out a huge variety of functions in the body, so balancing and replenishing them can help reduce many different issues and symptoms. BHRT treatment can help to balance:

  • Testosterone, which is the hormone that stimulates the body to develop and maintain healthy muscles and bones, as well as improve stamina. Increasing testosterone in the body also increases libido and can improve mood swings, anxiety and depression. Low testosterone also can lead to higher cholesterol, changes in blood pressure and prostate issues in men.
  • Oestrogen, which helps protect against cardiovascular disease and helps to maintain healthy bone structure, reducing the risk of osteoporosis. Oestrogen also contributes to improving the health of skin and other tissues, reducing symptoms of GSM, including vaginal dryness, and reducing the incidence and severity of hot flushes and night sweats. It also helps to improve libido and sexual function in women.
  • Progesterone, which is a stimulatory and regulatory hormone, that balances oestrogen levels, and can treat irregular menstruation, anxiety and sleep issues in women. In men, progesterone can help balance out testosterone therapy and reduce side effects of the treatment. It can also help improve sexual desire and performance, reduce fatigue and weight gain and help temper high blood pressure.
  • DHEA, or dehyroepiandrosterone is a hormone that is required for the production of both testosterone and oestrogen, and is the most abundant hormone in the body, though begins to reduce from around 25 years old. DHEA supports the immune system and can help to prevent obesity, heart disease, cancer and obesity.
  • Thyroid hormones help to stimulate the metabolic system and increase energy in the body. When the thyroid is either producing a low amount of hormones, or the receptor response in the body is low there are many issues that occur. Fatigue, high cholesterol, difficulty losing weight, depression and chronic pain are all associated with hypothyroidism (low production of thyroid hormones).
  • Vitamin D3 is an important fat-soluble vitamin that helps to improve bone structure and formation, as well as helping to maintain normal function in the immune system, thyroid and insulin production.
What Makes Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Different?

In the past, concerns were raised about the safety of traditional HRT treatment, leading to many women who were using HRT to stop treatment and see the return of their menopausal symptoms. However, it has since been proven that HRT is the safest and most effective treatment for symptoms of menopause, and has also been shown to prevent cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis in certain groups.

Bioidentical HRT is different from traditional HRT treatment as it uses entirely naturally derived hormones designed to perfectly mimic the hormones created by the body. It is also the only hormone replacement therapy treatment that offers bespoke solutions for every patient. Hormone imbalances can be a very delicate thing to treat, and while traditional treatments work well for some women, for others they can create new and different imbalances, causing low mood, weight gain, anxiety and depression.

With BHRT, your treatment is completely bespoke, and is regularly updated to ensure that you’re always getting a treatment that is perfect for you and your body.

Is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Right For Me?

BHRT is a fantastic treatment for both men and women, and can help to balance general health and give a real boost as we age. Generally, BHRT is more effective as we get older and hormone imbalances occur more often, however if Dr. Shirin feels that the treatment is right for you and can really make a difference to your day to day life, we are happy to work with you to find a BHRT prescription that works for you at your age.

How Do I Get Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

With BHRT treatments at Elite Aesthetics, we require a full initial conversation between you and Dr. Shirin, including a blood and saliva test. Then, you’ll have a second session to discuss the results and determine whether the treatment is right for you, both personally and medically. Then we’ll order your prescription and you’ll come for a third short session, where Dr. Shirin will demonstrate how to take your medication. Then you’re ready to go! At Elite Aesthetics, we’re always available to help and can adapt your prescription if you aren’t feeling the benefits of BHRT treatment, as well as offer expert advice if you have any concerns.
