Anti-Aging/Hormone Replacement Therapy Q & A
How does hormone replacement therapy work?
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) works by replenishing hormones that plummet as you grow old. Decreased hormone levels affect both women and men. For women, this involves estrogen treatments during menopause, while for men, HRT requires testosterone treatments as needed. By restoring your hormones, HRT can help resolve issues with:
- Sexual dysfunction, including erectile dysfunction and vaginal dryness
- Mood swings
- Weight gain
- Memory loss
- Hot flashes
Due to HRT restoring your hormones to the levels they were at when you were younger, these treatments are also known to reverse the signs of aging. Your anti-aging replacement therapy plan can help you look as good as you feel.
What can anti-aging hormone replacement help treat?
Anti-aging hormone replacement therapy is ideal for slowing down the effects of aging — both internal and external. Treatments can help:
- Minimize the decline of lean muscle mass
- Improve thinning skin and skin elasticity
- Decrease bone loss
HRT can even reduce your risk of developing chronic conditions that plague older adults and seniors, including heart disease and Alzheimer’s disease. Plus, because thinning hair is also a side effect of hormonal decreases, anti-aging hormone replacement may prevent further hair loss, if that’s affecting you.
When will I see results with anti-aging hormone treatments?
It takes some time for your anti-aging hormone treatments to start working. After all, your hormone levels didn’t drop overnight so that you won’t see results overnight. Depending on the severity of your signs and symptoms and what you’re trying to achieve, you should start noticing an improvement in the way you look and feel within a few weeks of beginning an HRT regimen.
Dr. Ohri monitors you regularly, often by checking your blood, to ensure that your hormone levels are improving. Generally, he starts you out on the lowest-dose patch, pill, or injection possible, then gradually increases your dosage. He may adjust your medication as needed, or change the formulary, to help you continue to look and feel your best.
