What Is Hormone Replacement Therapy?
The hormonal structures regulate numerous aspects of your general wellness, such as your energy levels, libido, and mood. Hormonal imbalances may happen in men and women alike, whether from the effects of stress, aging, or childbirth. Imbalanced hormones commonly result in issues, including tiredness, sexual dysfunction, trouble sleeping, weight gain, anxiety, irritability, joint pain, and hair loss. At Enhance Aesthetics & Wellness, we provide bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) for men and women who need to achieve a balance that allows the body to function properly. Bioidentical hormones have the same chemical and molecular structure as the hormones naturally produced in the human body. Bioidentical hormones are a natural alternative to synthetic hormones, treating the effects brought on by a decline in testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, thyroid hormones, and other hormone levels. Hormone replacement therapy optimizes hormone levels and helps to achieve improvements to your energy, libido, and focus. Reach out to our facility in Yuma, AZ to set up a consultation.

Am I a Candidate for Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is frequently administered to assist people with diminished or unbalanced hormone levels. Often, these problems occur among individuals who are over the age of 40 and are observing shifts in their energy levels, sex drive, weight, and mental focus. These problems could also be seen in women younger than 50 who have had a complete hysterectomy. A hormonal imbalance can cause various health concerns, including ED, thyroid disorders, high cholesterol, nighttime perspiration, insomnia, and trouble with memory. During a consultation at Enhance Aesthetics & Wellness, we will review your medical history and current health and listen to your concerns. Blood testing will also be done to check hormone levels to see if hormone replacement therapy is right for you.
The BHRT Treatment Process
Following a detailed exam and consultation, your custom hormone replacement therapy outline will be provided. To begin your therapy, blood work, along with more diagnostic tests, will be executed to check your present hormone levels. This will enable us to determine which hormones are out of balance and administer the appropriate dosage and type of treatment that might be best for you. Your treatment could change, depending on which kind of BHRT is chosen. BHRT is often given as either oral pills, sublingual tablets, topical creams, injections, or minuscule pellets (EvexiPEL) that are implanted underneath the epidermis.
EvexiPEL pellets are bioidentical and plant-derived, which allows the hormones to break down in the body and become naturally absorbed into the bloodstream. These pellets release hormone levels in response to your body's physical or emotional stress.
What Should I Expect After Starting Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Since hormone replacement is a highly customized therapy, it's vital to listen to all follow-up instructions supplied by Marina Roloff, DNP, FNP-C and her Yuma, AZ team. Patients might have side effects like swelling, pimples, hair growth, and emotional instability while the body gets used to the brand-new hormone levels. Throughout the length of your treatment, our staff will check in with you to inspect your progress. The prescription and treatment plan can be tweaked as recommended. Quite a few individuals see favorable improvements from hormone replacement therapy within about a week after the start of their therapy.
Hormone Replacement Therapy Reviews
My wife and I both had adjustments made to our hormones. I had the testosterone pellets and have had great results! Made me feel like a young man. Life is much better and feel stronger than I have in a long while. If your low on testosterone this is the fix for men. I highly recommend marina for any hormone adjustments. I can’t say enough good things about the treatment.
For years I’ve been seeing PCPs for symptoms like fatigue, brain fog, poor sleep quality, anxiety, and depression- all the while being told to “try to eat better”, “get more sleep”, or “try to reduce your stress”. I finally chose to put my health as a priority and began seeing Marina. Let me say, she is absolutely amazing. She had my hormones checked and identified deficiencies. I started on testosterone replacement therapy, and I haven’t felt this good in years. Marina not only listens, but she truly cares about my wellbeing.

Hormone Replacement Therapy FAQs
What causes hormone imbalances?
How do you know if your hormones are out of balance?
What are the long-term advantages of hormone replacement therapy?
What's the difference between bioidentical and synthetic hormones?
Bioidentical hormones are designed to be chemically identical to your body's natural hormones. Synthetic hormones, on the other hand, may have a slightly different chemical structure than your natural hormones. Research suggests that bioidentical hormones have fewer side effects and are more effective than synthetic ones.
What happens when if you stop hormone replacement therapy suddenly?
If hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is stopped abruptly, there's a risk that the symptoms it was managing, such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, or other signs of hormonal imbalance, could return. This applies to both men and women. It's typically recommended to gradually taper off HRT under the supervision of the team at Enhance Aesthetics & Wellness, who can monitor symptoms and adjust the approach as necessary.
How long can you stay on hormone replacement therapy?
The duration of BHRT can vary from person to person and should be decided in collaboration with a healthcare provider. For women, it's often recommended that HRT be used at the lowest effective dose for the shortest possible time, often for a few years around menopause. Men may be on testosterone replacement therapy for longer, depending on their symptoms and response to treatment.
