Hormones have major influences throughout your body, controlling functions like metabolism, sexual arousal, and reproduction. When they’re out of balance, Nandeesh Veerappa, MD, and Gifty Aidoo, FNP-C at Aesthetic Lab in Modesto and Turlock, California, may recommend bioidenticals as treatment. To learn about bioidentical hormones and how they improve symptoms of hormone imbalances, call Aesthetic Lab or book an appointment online today.
Bioidenticals are specific hormones you can use for hormone replacement therapy. They’re available for both men and women, with men’s bioidenticals mimicking testosterone and women’s bioidenticals mimicking estrogen and progesterone.
These hormones appear in structure and act in the body like the hormones your gonads create naturally. They’re not the same as your natural hormones structurally, but they’re pretty close. Hormones have major influences on your body’s processes and functions, and having an imbalance can lead to some significant changes and symptoms.
Typically, Aesthetic Lab prescribes bioidenticals in the form of hormone pellets. Your provider implants a pellet beneath your skin, where it dissolves gradually and releases hormones steadily. This process is different from other methods of taking hormones which may lead to inconsistent effects throughout the day.
Bioidentical hormones are distinct from synthetic ones, though they share similarities; both options treat imbalances, and experts make them in a lab. However, bioidentical hormones come from plant sources instead of chemical compounds. Researchers create both types in a lab setting, but bioidentical hormones are a little more natural because of their source.
If you have more questions about where bioidentical hormones come from and how they compare to synthetics, your provider at Aesthetic Lab is happy to answer your questions ahead of your treatment.
Bioidenticals treat imbalances in the sex hormones of both men and women. Your hormone levels fluctuate now and then, and most minor fluctuations won’t cause much upset in your body. However, conditions like low testosterone in men or menopause in women can lead to symptoms.
While some symptoms differ between the genders, both can experience:
Your provider reviews your symptoms and possible causes, including hormone imbalances. Before recommending bioidenticals as treatment, they may recommend a blood test to determine if a hormone imbalance is at play. They can also point you in the direction of more suitable treatments if you don’t have an imbalance.
To schedule a consultation for bioidenticals, call Aesthetic Lab or book an appointment online today.
"Gifty & her staff are the BEST! They keep me looking/feeling refreshed and not tired looking as ageing can do. Appointments are easy to book & she has several locations. I will continue to visit her & her team as needed."
"Gifty took amazing care of me for my first time getting lip filler. She spent a great deal of time discussing my concerns and desired results and made me feel very comfortable and excited about the process. In the end I walked away super happy with my results and am so grateful for my experience with her!"
"They explained to me in detail each step of the injections before starting. They made me feel comfortable by massaging my face, giving me ice packs, and tapping my knees. This helped tremendously! It distracted me from the needles and they had a conversation with a big warm smile on their face. They were honestly the sweetest, quickest, perfect, and professional. I am looking forward to my appointment with them soon. I highly recommend this practice!"
"Gifty is the best!!!! The most genuinely kind provider out there!!! Asthetics lab has such a welcoming professional atmosphere and a very loving staff that provides top notch customer service! Gifty is such a talented injector her attention to my concerns and her reliable recommendations as well as my results always being consistently perfect each time is why I only choose Asthetics lab to do all of my Botox, juvaderm, pdo threads, sculptra and more. I trust Gifty with it all!!! All my services at the clinic have been done in a calm supportive and kind environment where you really feel like your one of the girls when your there. I can be a baby when it comes to pain and not only do they do the usual pain regulating with numbing and ice but her and her assist literally walk me through deep breathing and cheer me on through the process! Like how nice is that!? I have been to many Drs and NPs just because I’m a poor planner and would need to go somewhere new because I didn’t make an appointment in advance which leads me to my absolute favorite thing about AL is that they do walk ins so if you’ve got a big event last minute and need those big lips No problem just run down to one of the AL labs!! Their clinic has surpassed there competition by a landslide! If your looking for a provider who goes the way extra mile try Gifty because If you’re not already getting your work done with Gifty and Kristen you’re missing out!!!"
"I was seen at the Turlock office. The office is clean and welcoming. The girls are very friendly and helpful. Gifty herself is wonderful. She’s kind and makes you feel right at home. It was my first time getting lip filler and she made it a great first experience. Very minimal pain and she did a great job! I love my lips!!'
"Today I had my brow done. I have special issues in that one side of my face falls with Botox bir thats not an issue for Gifty, she did threads on the bad side and Botox on the other side. The results are so natural. I do not even have any bruising. I am so excited to have fresh natural results! Thank you Gifty for always customizing my treatment ."
"I was super nervous getting lip fillers for the first time. As a guy, I was concerned I’d face some judgement and disparaging looks. This wasn’t the case AT ALL! The entire staff from the front desk receptionist, the nurse, and Gifty all made me feel welcome and relaxed and answered all questions and concerns I addressed. I LOVE the results of my fillers and will definitely recommend her practice and will be coming back myself! Thank you!!"
"I loved my experience! All the staff was so nice and informative—they’re customer service is superb! From the moment I reached out, they were quick to answer my questions and get me scheduled in. They all made me feel so comfortable. This was my first time ever getting any treatments done on my face. During the consultation, Gifty was honest and so genuine. Just by talking to her you can tell she’s just an overall good person and wants you to achieve the best results for your face. I ended up getting Botox but I will definitely be back for other treatments. I can’t wait!"
"Gifty and Jamie were amazing. The best experience I’ve had and it felt like I was with a couple girlfriends. They both talked to me throughout the service and made feel so comfortable. I will definitely go back and highly recommend them. Oh, and I was a walk-in! Love that they have that!"
"I love the experience you receive, from the staff to Gifty, so sweet and caring! I had wanted lip fillers and Botox for so long, I finally scheduled after a friends recommendation, I will never go anywhere else for these services!!! Gifty is an amazing provider, knowledgeable and sweet! I trust her completely! If you are wanting any type of procedures please see her, you will not be disappointed!!!"
"At my age I was quite nervous I will say I know I needed a miracle I didn't know I was going to have my lips done but I'm glad I did and her suggestion and where the areas where that needed to be touched up I will be going back however she told me it would take up to 2 weeks for me to see the full results!"
