BioTE Hormone Replacement Therapy Helps Both Men & Women

Ah, aging. Nobody’s favorite topic. When did blowing out birthday candles become a chore rather than an occasion to celebrate? But, rather than be discouraged by the changes our bodies experience as we age, we should seek solutions that help us look and feel our best. Because, ultimately, you are only as old as you feel.

A hormone imbalance is often to blame when we have age-related changes that negatively impact our lives. And bioidentical pellet hormone therapy can be a powerful option. Read on to learn how bioidentical hormone therapy from Aesthetica Medical Spa, the wellness destination for Salt Lake City residents, can help recover a more youthful you.

About Hormone Replacement Therapy

You may not know that a testosterone deficiency can affect both men and women. Symptoms include:

  • Low libido
  • Weight gain
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Mood swings

In the past, hormone therapy treatment may have consisted of a taking a pill or applying a patch. Unfortunately, these methods are often inconsistently effective, leaving Utah men and women who rely on them to deal with a rollercoaster-like feeling of ups and downs.

BioTe and the BHRT Difference

There is a better way: BioTe hormone pellet replacement therapy. Professionals in a clinic or medical spa—like Aesthetica—inject hormone pellets underneath the skin. The small pellets used in Pellet Therapy release sustained doses of hormones and last for up to 4 to 6 months.

Even better, Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy, or BHRT, uses plant-based, non-synthetic hormones that, biologically speaking, are identical to human hormones. This means BioTe pellets are better able to unlock the potential of the human body for both men and women, and have fewer side effects than their synthetic counterparts.

BioTe Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement: A Solution For Both Men and Women

Women and men can suffer the effects of low testosterone levels, and women can also suffer if their estrogen levels are too low.

For women, not getting hormone replacement therapy when necessary can lead to:

  • A higher risk of some cancers
  • Heart disease
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Mental balance
  • Libido
  • Muscle tone

Men often site the following symptoms:

  • Loss of libido
  • Fatigue
  • Loss of mental acuity

Utah County and Salt Lake City men and women who are experiencing these symptoms could be excellent candidates for BioTe bioidentical hormone therapy. Wasatch Front residents often find that the sustained hormone release provided by BioTe bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is preferable to the rollercoaster ride that other methods can provide.

BioTe is available to men and women from Salt Lake City and Utah County at Aesthetica Medical Spa. If you would like more information about BioTe, please call Aesthetica Medical Spa at 1-877-580-2622.

Laser Hair Removal: At-Home vs. Professional Services

Since the introduction of laser hair-removal technology two decades ago, millions of women have been delighted with the results. Laser treatment for women in Salt Lake City provides amazing benefits: silky smooth skin, no more shaving and no more ingrown hairs.

Most people know that going to a Utah medical spa is the best place to get that unwanted hair zapped. However, new in-home devices promise women the same results. But is DIY laser hair removal really worth skipping the spa? 

Professional vs. At-Home Laser Hair Removal: The Price Difference
The upfront cost of an in-home laser hair removal system is steep—$500 or more before you even turn it on. Individual treatments at a reputable Salt Lake City medical spa, however, can cost a fraction of that. And because they’re usually spread out over time, the costs prove to be much more reasonable than the large initial investment.

Professional vs. At-Home Laser Hair Removal: Technology Comparison
In-home laser systems become outdated rather quickly. In fact, companies that make these devices often come out with new models and discontinue the old ones.

At a medical spa, however, the laser hair removal systems utilize the latest technology, including a cooling system to minimize discomfort, as well as an optional prescription anesthetic to ease the process. Spas have the resources and access to technology most consumers just can’t afford to have in their home.

Professional vs. At-Home Laser Hair Removal: A Learning Curve
Women who purchase an in-home laser hair removal system have to rely on instruction manuals and online message boards to make sure they’re operating their devices correctly. And even then, mistakes can happen, leading to injuries such as burns.

At a professional laser hair removal center, however, laser technicians have years of training and experience and are trained regularly to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for their clients.

Utah residents who use in-home laser hair removal systems often find that the process can be time-consuming, uncomfortable and, most importantly, lead to inconsistent results. Trusting a professional at Aesthetica takes the worry out of the process, making it quick and easy.

While there may be some advantages to pursuing in-home laser hair removal treatment, most people soon realize that getting treatment at a Utah medical spa just makes more sense overall.
