Men and women often take stock of their health at the beginning of the year and pledge to change their lifestyles. Exercise and dieting are the most commonly made New Year’s resolutions, but the new year is also a time to think about other ways to feel and look better. Hormone replacement therapy offers a number of anti-aging benefits for Louisiana residents.
The Stages of Aging
Understanding how the aging process differs for men and women is important when you’re considering hormone replacement therapy. For men, the changes occur more gradually as testosterone levels decline. A man in his 30s who exercises regularly may continue building muscle mass, but that growth typically peaks at this point. He may start putting on weight but often won’t really notice significant changes until reaching his late 40s and early 50s.
At the same time, a man’s libido declines, he may have trouble sleeping, and an overall loss of energy may become an issue. These collective symptoms are referred to as andropause.
Menopause is a much more familiar term for most people. It signals the stage when estrogen levels decline steeply, and women may experience some fairly dramatic physical and emotional changes. Peri-menopause usually occurs sometime after a woman turns 40.
For both men and women, signs of facial aging such as wrinkles and depleted volume occur as the skin loses collagen and expression lines develop around the eyes.
Anti-Aging Benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy
It can be difficult to acknowledge the toll aging takes on our appearances and energy levels, but it’s completely natural. “Aging gracefully” sounds nice, but most men and women would like to regain their youthful looks, stamina, and mental clarity. Cosmetic injectables and hormone replacement therapy at Rejuvime Medical clinics in Baton Rouge and Metairie can help turn back the clock.
Testosterone replacement therapy for men diagnosed with low testosterone levels (low T) and estrogen therapy for women going through menopause are among the services offered at Rejuvime Medical.
Hormone replacement therapy’s anti-aging benefits include:
- Boosting energy levels
- Increasing libido
- Reversing weight gain
- Increasing physical performance
Our specialists and medical professionals customize hormone therapy based on each person’s specific concerns and physical health when they first come in for a consultation. Over time, the treatment plan may be adjusted as needed.
What About Facial Aging?
Dermal fillers such as the collection of JUVÉDERM® products and BOTOX® Cosmetic injections are used at Rejuvime Medical to soften wrinkles and fine lines and reduce the appearance of a double chin. We often recommend combining JUVÉDERM and BOTOX injections because they treat different types of wrinkles. BOTOX, for example, is used to erase crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes, worry lines (the “11s”), and horizontal forehead lines. Fillers such as JUVÉDERM and Restylane® treat nasolabial folds, sunken-looking cheeks, and other age-related volume loss.
