The Science:

Bio-identical hormones, often referred to as bioidentical hormones, are synthetic hormones designed to be structurally identical to the hormones naturally produced by the human body, such as estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. The science behind bio-identical hormones is rooted in the principles of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and endocrinology. Here’s how they work:

  • Hormone Deficiency or Imbalance: Bio-identical hormone therapy is typically used to address hormonal deficiencies or imbalances, which can occur due to aging, medical conditions, or other factors. For example, women may experience a decrease in estrogen and progesterone during menopause, leading to symptoms like hot flashes, mood swings, and bone loss. Men can also face imbalances in hormones, particularly with testosterone.
  • Customized Treatment: The science behind bio-identical hormones lies in their customization. Unlike synthetic hormones used in traditional HRT, which are not structurally identical to human hormones, bio-identical hormones are synthesized to match the molecular structure of the hormones they are meant to replace. This customization allows for a more precise and tailored treatment.
  • Individualized Approach: Medical professionals may prescribe bio-identical hormones after assessing a patient’s specific hormonal needs through blood tests or other diagnostic methods. This individualized approach aims to restore hormonal balance and alleviate symptoms.
  • Treatment Administration: Bio-identical hormones can be administered in various forms, including creams, gels, patches, injections, and oral preparations. The choice of administration method often depends on the patient’s specific hormonal needs and preferences.
  • Biological Compatibility: The science behind bio-identical hormones hinges on their biological compatibility with the body. Because they are structurally identical to naturally occurring hormones, the body can metabolize and utilize them effectively.
  • Symptom Relief: The primary goal of bio-identical hormone therapy is to alleviate symptoms associated with hormonal imbalances, such as hot flashes, mood swings, fatigue, and reduced bone density. For both men and women, it can address symptoms related to hormonal changes as they age.
  • Risk Reduction: Bio-identical hormones are considered by some as a safer alternative to traditional HRT with synthetic hormones. Because they closely mimic the body’s natural hormones, they are believed to carry a lower risk of side effects.
  • Ongoing Monitoring: As with any hormone therapy, the science behind bio-identical hormones also involves ongoing monitoring. Healthcare providers may adjust the treatment as needed based on a patient’s hormone levels and symptom relief.


It’s important to note that while bio-identical hormones are often promoted as a more natural and personalized approach to hormone replacement, scientific consensus and regulatory oversight may vary by region.

The Benefits:

Bio-identical hormones, often referred to as bioidentical hormones, offer several potential benefits for individuals who require hormone replacement therapy (HRT) to address hormonal imbalances or deficiencies. These benefits include:

Bio-identical hormones are customized to match the molecular structure of hormones naturally produced by the human body. This customization allows for a precise restoration of hormonal balance, making them an effective option for HRT.

The primary goal of bio-identical hormones is to alleviate the symptoms associated with hormonal imbalances. This includes addressing issues such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, fatigue, and sleep disturbances in menopausal women. Men can also benefit from symptom relief, particularly those with low testosterone.

Bio-identical hormones are prescribed after an assessment of the patient’s specific hormonal needs, often determined through blood tests or other diagnostic methods. This individualized approach ensures that treatment aligns with the patient’s unique requirements.

The treatment can even out skin tone, reduce hyperpigmentation, and enhance overall skin texture, leaving the skin looking smoother and more radiant.

Regular HydraFacial treatments can help minimize the appearance of enlarged pores, resulting in a smoother complexion.

Bio-identical hormones allow for customized dosing, ensuring that patients receive the precise amount of hormones needed. This can help minimize side effects and optimize the therapeutic benefits.

Some individuals find that bio-identical hormones are associated with fewer side effects compared to traditional HRT using synthetic hormones. This is because bio-identical hormones closely resemble the body’s natural hormones, making them more biologically compatible.

Symptom relief and hormonal balance provided by bio-identical hormones can significantly enhance an individual’s quality of life. Women experiencing menopausal symptoms may find relief from discomfort, mood disturbances, and sleep disruptions, while men may experience improved energy levels and mood.

Hormone imbalances, particularly low estrogen, can lead to bone density loss. Bio-identical hormone therapy can help maintain or improve bone health by addressing these imbalances. This is especially important for postmenopausal women who are at risk of osteoporosis.

Some studies suggest that bio-identical hormone therapy, particularly in postmenopausal women, may have a beneficial impact on cardiovascular health. This is believed to be related to estrogen’s potential to support healthy blood vessels.

Balanced hormones can have a positive effect on mental health and emotional well-being. Patients often report improvements in mood, anxiety, and overall mental health with bio-identical hormone therapy.

It’s important to note that while bio-identical hormones are considered by some as a more personalized and potentially safer option for HRT, individual responses can vary.


After analyzing required bloodwork to evaluate deficiencies, a plan is created specifically for your needs. From the results we receive, Bio-identical hormones are compounded locally, ensuring a highly effective treatment.

For Women: The benefits of BHRT include relief from the symptoms related to hormone deficiencies such as perimenopause and menopause to achieve hormonal balance.

For Men: The benefits of BHRT include relief from the symptoms related to low levels of testosterone and andropause.

After a consultation that includes bloodwork, a BHRT plan will be customized to your needs. An anesthetic agent is used to numb the treatment area where pellet insertion takes place. The insertion is usually found near or around the buttocks. A small incision is created, and the hormone pellet is inserted and covered with a bandage. Over time, the pellet will naturally metabolize in the body. Post insertion, you should abstain from intense lower body exercises until fully healed. Showers are approved, but avoiding hot tubs, baths, and swimming for 24-48 hours is essential to prevent incision site complications.

BHRT is a proven and effective treatment to alleviate age-related hormonal symptoms in both males and females. It enhances your quality of life and helps optimize physical, sexual, emotional, and mental health.

Bioidentical hormone products are FDA-approved and have been tested for safety, passing the FDA’s stringent standards. They have been proven safe for human use. Compounded hormones have not gone through similar FDA testing.
