Dr. Laurence and his team at Germantown Aesthetics are experienced with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) and have helped many of our patients achieve optimal levels of hormones. Studies have demonstrated that optimal levels of hormones are associated with less risk for heart disease, stroke, and cancer. Other observed benefits include improved sleep, energy, cognition, and libido. Many report weight loss and improvement in depression symptoms.
Recognizing that there is much truth in the old adage “You only look as good as you feel”, Germantown Aesthetics is one of a small number of progressive practices that offer BHRT as part of a comprehensive aesthetic practice. We have a passion to providing natural, long-term aesthetic results. These results may require surgical or non-surgical modalities, but all results are augmented with the healthy tissue associated with optimized hormone levels.
