CONTRIBUTED CONTENT — Hormones play a significant role in how people feel and how they function. Men and women in every stage of life can be affected by hormonal imbalances, but the symptoms aren’t something you just have to live with.

Desert Sands Aesthetics & Laser, a cutting-edge medical spa in St. George, is dedicated to empowering patients with the knowledge and tools they need to successfully navigate hormonal changes. This new year, take charge of your future with personalized solutions designed to help you look better, feel better and achieve optimal health.

“Maintaining optimal hormone levels as we age contributes to living better into our later years, enabling us to continue doing the things we love,” owner Shannon Evans said. “After all, life’s too short to not live your best life.”

Desert Sands Aesthetics & Laser recommends that all adults get their hormones checked, but especially if you’re over age 30 or are experiencing symptoms of a hormonal imbalance. The lab test to evaluate hormone levels is a simple blood draw. 

Desert Sands Aesthetics & Laser recently partnered with Access labs to provide hormone testing for their patients at a discounted cash price. These tests, which normally cost upward of $1,500, are only $330 for women and $250 for men. The men’s panel includes 30 different labs, while the women’s test features 35 labs.

Patients work with the wellness specialists at Desert Sands Aesthetics & Laser to develop a customized hormone replacement therapy plan. Solutions include creams, pills, injectables and bioidentical pellets.

Bioidentical pellet hormone replacement therapy by BioTe is a specialized delivery system derived from natural plant sources which closely mimic the body’s hormones, leading to more effective results with fewer side effects. Starting the new year with personalized hormone therapy can help you achieve hormonal balance, improve energy levels, enhance mood and support overall well-being.

After starting hormone replacement therapy, you’ll likely notice symptomatic relief within weeks to months. The most common changes are increased energy, elevated mood, improved concentration and memory, enhanced libido, reduced joint pain, accelerated weight loss, fewer hot flashes and night sweats, and better sleep and mental clarity.

Balanced hormones also help protect the brain, heart, bones and muscles, which becomes especially important as people age. Patients are encouraged to continue treatment for as long as they want to enjoy the short- and long-term benefits of optimizing their hormones. 

“Understanding how hormones play a significant role in day-to-day well-being is crucial,” Evans said. “I started optimizing my hormones in my late 30s so that when I hit menopause, my transition would be easier and without so many symptoms. I’m so grateful I did that.”

“I feel amazing and haven’t felt this good in a long time,” added John, a hormone replacement therapy patient at Desert Sands Aesthetics & Laser. “I’m feeling like my old self again.”
