“The Change” has been a horrific topic for women who have experienced menopause or are still struggling through it. Yes, for centuries “the change of life”, euphemistically put, can be scary on the aging body and the skin when the reproductive years come to an end. Look, it’s a fact of life. During menopause, a woman’s body can go through a plethora of uncomfortable conditions like night sweats, irregular periods, vaginal dryness, itchy skin. And let’s not forget about those hot flashes. Sounds quite nightmarish, huh? Oh, it doesn’t stop there. After menopause, many women will find that they have packed on quite a few unwanted pounds and lost elasticity in their skin. Thankfully, hormone replacement therapy is available as an option for relieving these discomforts after menopause.
So, why should women choose hormone replacement therapy? Well, hormone replacement therapy, or HRT, uses female hormones estrogen, and progesterone, to treat symptoms of menopause and aging.
When menopause begins, women stop producing as much estrogen and progesterone, causing hormone levels to drop. So, women may notice that their waistlines have spread, their bodies have taken a new shape, their appetites have increased, their metabolisms have slowed down and they’ve started to retain water. Hormone replacement therapy can help to counteract the damage by getting the body back to a regulated weight and maintaining body composition.
As for the skin, unfortunately, a woman can become more prone to thinning, sagging, wrinkling of the upper lip, and crow’s feet. She also loses collagen and elasticity, which compromises the firmness and resilience of the skin. Hormone replacement therapy can give back the plumpness and tightness she has lost through the menopausal process.
Hormone replacement therapy is used to replace hormones your body no longer produces, thereby relieving a multitude of symptoms associated with menopause. It’s considered to be a highly effective treatment and is one of the less aggressive treatments for women who need help to gracefully transition through this natural, but difficult process.
