About Hormone Therapy
Hormone fluctuations make the teenage years difficult, but you think once you get through it, you're safe. However, as you age, your hormone levels begin to dip and fluctuate causing many symptoms that are written off as a natural part of aging. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Charles P. Virden is dedicated to helping his patients avoid unnecessary mental and physical problems with hormone testing and personalized hormone therapy for his Tahoe/Truckee, California area patients at Bella Lago Aesthetics. Once hormone imbalances are identified, Dr. Virden can create a plan with hormone pellets, prescriptions, or supplements to optimize hormone levels and relieve symptoms. Most patients require tiny hormone pellets that are placed just under the skin to release all-natural bio-identical estrogen and testosterone that are absorbed consistently into the body as needed. Don't accept that you have to slow down and do less as you get older, schedule a consultation with Dr. Virden at Bella Lago to learn about your hormone wellness and how it can be improved.
Testing and hormone therapy may help patients who:
- Are worried about reduced sexual desire and performance
- Experience moodiness, anxiety, or depression
- Feel fatigued or mentally foggy
- Have difficulty sleeping
- Have trouble losing weight
- Lack energy or strength
- Want to improve the quality of their life while aging
What to Expect
Proper hormone levels are determined by a comprehensive bloodwork analysis. Unique dosing is generated for each individual patient, so dosing is customized for what your body needs. Pellets deliver pure, bio-identical hormones directly into the bloodstream 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for up to 5 months. Pills, patches, creams and shots cannot provide a steady delivery of hormones 24/7. Pellets provide a constant supply of hormones that your body recognizes as its own, which significantly reduces the chance of adverse side effects.
While hormone therapy is a great start to hormone balance and health, it is important to follow a healthy diet and exercise regularly to help your body improve faster. The hormone pellets that we use at Bella Lago Aesthetics contain the same chemical structure as your body’s natural hormones, which helps to minimize negative side effects.
