Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) has quickly become popular as a holistic solution to leveling out hormonal imbalances. Beyond Skin Aesthetics recognizes the importance of comprehensive wellness in achieving your beauty and skin goals. But with so many questions about BHRT, it can be confusing to know if the treatment, which improves overall well-being, is right for you.


What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement?

Bioidentical hormone replacement is a specialized therapy that uses hormones identical in molecular structure to the ones the body naturally produces. The hormones used in BHRT are derived from plant sources and then processed chemically. The main goal of bioidentical hormone replacement is to restore hormonal balance in those experiencing symptoms due to hormonal changes, deficiencies, or imbalances that come with age.

Before undergoing BHRT, it’s essential to consult with a Beyond Skin Aesthetics professional to make sure that the treatment is right for you.

How Does Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Work?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy works by balancing hormone levels and alleviating the symptoms of those imbalances like hot flashes, mood swings, and fatigue. BHRT also promotes overall health and well-being.

Unlike synthetic hormones, which have slightly different structures than our natural hormones, bioidentical hormones are better tolerated and metabolized by the body. This means that they can potentially provide more effective relief from symptoms associated with menopause, perimenopause, and other hormonal changes.

We will analyze your current hormone levels through a series of tests and determine which ones require supplementation. Then, customized doses of bioidentical hormones are tailored to your needs.

The goal of BHRT is to restore hormonal harmony without the use of synthetic chemicals or altering the body’s natural processes. Bioidentical hormone replacement is an alternative approach that emphasizes personalized care rather than adopting a one-size-fits-all solution when managing hormone-related issues.

The Benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

  • Relieves symptoms of menopause and perimenopause: Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) can help alleviate the uncomfortable symptoms associated with menopause and perimenopause, such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, and fatigue. By replenishing declining hormone levels, BHRT restores hormonal balance and relieves these distressing symptoms.
  • Improves bone health: The EmSculpt NEO can lift and sculpt the buttocks by combining radiofrequency heating with electromagnetic stimulation. ThisHormonal imbalances during menopause can decrease bone density, increasing the risk of osteoporosis and fractures. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy has been shown to improve bone density by stimulating new bone growth and reducing the rate of bone loss. This helps prevent osteoporosis and strengthens bones, reducing the likelihood of fractures.
  • Enhances cognitive function: Fluctuating hormone levels can impair memory, concentration, and overall cognitive function. Studies have demonstrated that bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can improve cognitive function by restoring optimal hormone levels in postmenopausal women. BHRT may enhance memory recall abilities while also supporting overall brain health.
  • Improved libido: Bioidentical hormone replacement is a natural way of restoring hormonal balance in both men and women, treating conditions like low libido as well as the effects of menopause, polycystic ovarian symptoms, and thyroid dysfunction.
  • Personalized treatment: BHRT is always customized to treat an individual’s specific hormonal needs. However, the treatment must always be monitored closely by your provider to ensure that you are receiving the right balance and types of hormones for you.

Conditions Treated with BHRT

BHRT can effectively alleviate many of the symptoms associated with menopause, such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, loss of bone density, and vaginal dryness.


By rebalancing hormone levels with bioidentical hormones that are nearly identical to those produced by the body, women can experience relief from these uncomfortable menopausal symptoms.

BHRT is not just for women; it can also help men suffering from low testosterone levels. This condition, known as hypogonadism, can cause fatigue, reduced libido, muscle loss, depression, and difficulty concentrating. With BHRT treatments, testosterone levels can be restored to optimal levels, leading to an improved quality of life.

Hormonal imbalances within the thyroid often result in hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism. BHRT offers a comprehensive approach to treating these conditions by optimizing thyroid function through targeted hormone replacement therapy. The results include weight maintenance, improved energy levels, less skin dryness, decreased brain fog, constipation and irregular menstruation, and mood disturbances.

Women diagnosed with PCOS commonly experience hormonal imbalances and have higher-than-normal insulin levels and male hormones such as testosterone. This can lead to infertility. 


Using BHRT alongside lifestyle modifications, like dietary changes, regular exercise, and stress reduction techniques, helps balance hormone levels, reduce excessive hair growth, improve insulin resistance, relieve menstrual irregularities, alleviate acne, improve fertility, and treat metabolic syndrome.
