New Image Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center offers hormone replacement to patients from Orlando and nearby locations.
It seems inevitable. As we get older, our bodies begin to deteriorate, affecting our self-confidence and self-esteem. But that isn’t necessarily the case anymore. Because of the tremendous advances in hormone therapy, our physical decline is preventable and, to a large degree, reversible.
With hormone replacement, Dr. Jan V. Karlin of New Image Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center in Orlando can give you a youthful boost and help your body fight the aggressors of aging. The staff at New Image Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center is proud to offer hormone replacement to the men and women of our extended Orlando community, including residents of Altamonte Springs, Kissimmee, Apopka, Sanford, Winter Park and other parts of Central Florida.
Hormones are the substances that control every bodily function, such as the metabolic system, the immune system, the reproductive system, the nervous system and more. Hormone replacement gives your body natural hormones that are exactly bioequivalent to your own hormones. Currently, there is no more effective therapy to prevent the inevitable decline we experience as we get older.
When you undergo hormone replacement with Dr. Karlin in our Orlando office, you will receive a complete screening to test for the following:
- Free T3
- Free Testosterone
- IGF-1 (Growth Hormone)
- PSA (men only)
The procedure also includes a consultation with Dr. Karlin before the lab tests and a follow-up consultation after the lab tests to determine what hormones you require. Also, there will be periodic follow-up visits to adjust hormone levels if needed.
Our hormones are obtained through a compounding pharmacy, insuring a pharmaceutical grade of product. Some of the commonly replaced hormones include:
Progesterone — Natural progesterone is excellent for preventing osteoporosis. It can also help ward off breast, uterine and ovarian cancer. Because progesterone is wonderful for blood vessels, it can assist in the prevention of coronary artery spasm and migraine headaches. It is also thermogenic, meaning it helps fat to burn. In men, natural progesterone prevents cancer of the prostate.
Testosterone — Natural testosterone in both men and women promotes muscle growth, prevents osteoporosis and increases libido. It also helps prevent coronary artery disease and arthritis.
Estrogen — Natural estrogen is beneficial for the skin, helps prevent osteoporosis and eliminates hot flashes and vaginal dryness. It may also help prevent Alzheimer’s disease.
DHEA — Replacement with DHEA enhances the immune system and reduces body fat and cholesterol, thus helping to prevent cancer and heart disease. DHEA can also be extremely beneficial for people with arthritis.
Thyroid — Thyroid replacement enhances your metabolism by helping to get rid of excess body fat and giving you more energy. It also improves mental functioning, lowers cholesterol and enhances the appearance of your skin, nails and hair.
Melatonin — Melatonin induces youthful sleep patterns and has a strong influence on the immune system. Studies have shown that it slows aging and helps to prevent and treat cancer through its significant antioxidant effects.
Human Growth Hormone — Growth Hormone, or HGH, is considered by some as the main anti-aging hormone. HGH has the ability to prevent age-related changes and to reverse those changes that have already occurred.
