Anderson Aesthetics and Wellness strives to make clients feel great on the inside and outside. Hormones play a huge role in our overall sense of well-being. Hormone imbalance can happen in both men and women and may start in our late 20s and often by our early 30s. Proper diagnosis and treatment of hormone imbalance requires a comprehensive and holistic approach. In men, this can include bioidentical forms of testosterone and thyroid when necessary. In women, a combination of testosterone, estradiol, progesterone, and thyroid medications may be used depending on the results of your lab work. In addition, certain nutraceutical supplements may be recommended based on the results of your exam.
Symptoms of Hormone Imbalance include but are not limited to:
- Weight Gain
- Decreased Libido
- Decreased Energy
- Sleep Disturbances
- Dry Hair and Skin
- Suboptimal Immune System Functioning
At your initial consultation, a thorough history and physical exam will be performed and blood work will be drawn to check numerous physiologic functions in your body. This will guide us in forming a customized treatment plan to get you back to feeling your best!
