Hormones are small but important chemical messengers that regulate all kinds of functions in the body, impacting everything from mood and energy levels to reproductive health. When hormones are out of balance, they cause many unwanted health issues.

Revival Aesthetics and Wellness may recommend bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) by BioTE® to optimize your hormones and improve your quality of life.

Are your hormones out of balance?

There are many reasons why someone’s hormones may become imbalanced. Common causes include age, events like pregnancy and childbirth, menopause, some medical conditions, medications, or even stressful life events.

Each person experiences hormone imbalances differently. You may notice fluctuations in energy levels, mood, sex drive, sleeping patterns, appetite and digestion, or weight. You may feel more depressed or anxious than usual.

Many symptoms caused by a hormone imbalance are subtle at first, but, eventually, impact your day-to-day life. This makes it challenging to concentrate at work or enjoy time with family and friends.

What is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

BHRT is a natural and effective way to restore hormone levels and alleviate the symptoms of a hormone imbalance. Bioidentical hormones are replicas of the hormones produced by our own bodies. They are made from plant-based sources and are structurally identical to human hormones.

Revival Aesthetics and Wellness can perform an assessment to measure your hormone levels and if pellet therapy with BioTE can meet your needs. Treatment involves placing tiny hormone pellets just under the skin, where they release a consistent amount of hormones into the body over time. The procedure only involves a small incision and a short recovery period.

What are the benefits of BHRT?

Many people consider prescription medications or even surgery to manage symptoms of a hormone imbalance. However, these methods come with unwanted side effects and discomfort. People choose bioidentical hormone therapy because it treats the root cause of their health issues without the dangers associated with traditional treatments in Spanish Fork, UT.

How long does hormone therapy take to work?

Patients schedule follow-up appointments at Revival Aesthetics and Wellness to monitor their progress and symptoms. It may take time to notice results, but most people feel an improvement in their hormone-related symptoms within the first few weeks. Our trained team will make adjustments to ensure you experience the best possible results.

How do you know if BHRT works?

The goal of BHRT is to alleviate symptoms and help you feel like yourself again. For example, you may also notice improved energy levels, better sleep, improved concentration, and a more positive mood. We recommend keeping a detailed journal to keep track of your symptoms and progress over time. This can help determine if the treatment is working and improving your quality of life.
