Hormone Pellet Therapy for Skin Health in Lake Charles, LA
Hormonal changes that take place during perimenopause and menopause for women and andropause for men can significantly affect skin health. During perimenopause and menopause, a decline in the levels of estrogen and testosterone in the body can cause accelerated aging of the skin. Women's skin can become oilier and facial hair growth can increase, especially on the chin. Women often experience sagging skin and wrinkles, and the skin loses its overall elasticity as a result of a drop in estrogen. The skin thins and cell turnover rate slows, which can result in water loss and dry skin.
A drop in the hormone testosterone for men reduces collagen production, which results in thinner, dryer and more wrinkled skin. The repair mechanism in the skin is also affected, which can cause slower wound healing.
A drop in estrogen and testosterone for women means losing collagen production in the skin, especially in the face. Skin thins out, loses elasticity and sets the stage for wrinkles to form. The loss of estrogen and testosterone also reduces the number of blood vessels in the skin, resulting in pale skin with a lack of nutrients traveling to the skin's surface.
However, these and other issues with skin health are treatable with the BioTE® method using bio-identical hormone pellet therapy.
What is Hormone Pellet Therapy for Skin Health?
The BioTE® method using hormone pellet therapy is a treatment designed to balance hormones naturally. Hormone pellet therapy can optimize the levels of estrogen and testosterone that drop during menopause and andropause, causing the many signs of aging we see in the skin, including wrinkles and loss of youthful volume in the face. Once your hormones are balanced, you may notice improvement in the look and feel of the skin, not just on the face, but the entire body. You can get back to looking and feeling better about yourself with hormone pellet therapy.
How Does Hormone Pellet Therapy for Skin Health Work?
The BioTE® method using hormone pellet therapy releases a steady stream of hormones within the body that lasts three to five months. Balanced levels of estrogen and testosterone help to ease the symptoms of declining skin health. Testosterone rebuilds collagen and helps to repair skin that has thinned as a result of the onset of menopause or andropause.
