Bioidentical Hormone Therapy Q & A

Why do I need bioidentical hormone therapy?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is personalized to you and is designed to stabilize your hormone levels. You may need hormone treatments if you experience:

  • Vaginal dryness
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Low libido
  • Weight fluctuations
  • Mood swings
  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Decreased concentration


Plus, with more stabilized hormone levels, you can decrease your risk of chronic conditions, including diabetes and cataracts.

How does bioidentical hormone therapy work?

Dr. Dittrich and the expert practitioners at Professional Aesthetics & Wellness Center offer the most modern bioidentical hormone therapy treatments available. Bioidentical hormone treatments are unique because they are derived from natural sources, like yams, and model your own hormone chemical structure almost exactly.

Because bioidentical hormones are so similar to your body’s own hormones, you’re less likely to experience side effects. Additionally, you can expect even faster results.  

When will I have results with bioidentical hormone therapy?

Dr. Dittrich gets to know each patient individually, so he can best design personalized BHRT plans that are ideal for your specific needs. You may benefit from bioidentical pellets, which are injected right under your skin near your hip, or compounded bioidentical topical creams — sometimes both.

Most men and women who start bioidentical hormone therapy at Professional Aesthetics & Wellness Center begin noticing a reduction in their symptoms within a couple weeks of starting treatment. Because your hormones are going to continue to stabilize gradually, you’re likely going to continue experiencing even more benefits with each passing day.*

How long does bioidentical hormone therapy last?

Since your body is ever-changing and you’re going to continue to age, Dr. Dittrich generally recommends coming in several times a year to check your hormone levels. This way, he can ensure your BHRT is working and make any essential adjustments to your treatment plan.

Bioidentical hormone pellets can usually provide optimal results for up to 3-6 months, so once you start noticing that your benefits are wearing off, you can always come back to Professional Aesthetics & Wellness Center to have more bioidentical pellets implanted. Compounded bioidentical creams need to be applied daily, or as recommended.
