What is anti-aging treatment?
As people age, their bodies produce fewer and fewer hormones, particularly testosterone in men and estrogen in women. With fewer hormones, their bodies start to show signs of aging such as:
- Skin issues
- Lower sex drive
- Vaginal dryness in women
- Erectile dysfunction in men
- Weaker and thinner bones
- Lower energy
- Poorer mood
- Lower-quality sleep
- Slower cognitive function
Anti-aging treatment works to try to reverse these problems and help you feel younger by balancing hormones.
How does anti-aging treatment work?
Dr. Windsor tailors anti-aging treatment to your individual needs. Your approach might include pills, patches, or gels.
Women who have passed menopause may benefit from taking estrogen and progestin in the form of natural, bioidentical hormones. These medicines may improve your skin’s appearance, increase your sexual drive and function, and protect your bone mass. They may also help stop symptoms of menopause like hot flashes.
Men may benefit from taking testosterone, which can boost energy and mood while improving sexual function. It may also help increase muscle mass and strength in active men.
Both men and women may benefit from taking DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone), a steroid hormone that occurs naturally in your body but decreases with age. DHEA may help with both mood and sexual function, as well as fight symptoms of menopause.
You may also benefit from taking human growth hormone (HGH). HGH may help you retain lean muscle mass and reduce body fat, which can increase with age. It may also boost your cognitive function, keeping your mind sharper.
The amount of hormone each person takes depends on their body’s needs. Blood tests can reveal low hormone levels and be used to monitor your progress on anti-aging therapy.
Is anti-aging treatment safe?
During your anti-aging treatment, Dr. Windsor monitors your hormone levels and health. You can adjust your doses to ensure good results with few side effects.
Many antiaging therapies are under study for long-term safety and effectiveness. If you have any questions about anti-aging therapy, Dr. Windsor is eager to help.
