Wellness Q & A
When do you need hormone replacement therapy?
Women and men can develop hormone imbalances that have a significant impact on their overall wellness:
When levels of estrogen decline at menopause, women are at risk for a wide variety of health problems, including classic menopause symptoms, vaginal atrophy, painful intercourse, and urinary incontinence.
Levels of testosterone naturally decline as men get older, starting around age 30 and continuing to decrease by about 1% every year. Men may also have an underlying health problem that affects testosterone.
What is BioTE® hormone therapy?
BioTE hormone therapy restores your health by increasing hormones to normal levels. BioTE consists of plant-based bioidentical hormones produced in a dose that Dr. Cho customizes for your exact hormone needs.
BioTE hormones come in a tiny pellet that’s injected under your skin, where they continuously release a steady amount of hormone. The pellet can stay in place for three to six months before Dr. Cho replaces it.
Would you benefit from body contouring or fat reduction?
Body contouring and fat reduction are noninvasive treatments that refine your body shape by eliminating pockets of fat and diminishing cellulite. They work best when you’re near your healthy weight but still have stubborn problem areas.
The Avante Laser & MediSpa team uses the Venus Legacy™ to diminish cellulite, contour your body by removing fat, and tighten your skin. Its radiofrequency energy, electromagnetic field, and gentle suction destroys fat cells, stimulates collagen production, and regenerates a new blood supply.
SculpSure® permanently eliminates resistant pockets of fat. It uses lasers to safely reach below your skin to heat and destroy fat cells; then they’re removed by your body. One session with SculpSure can get rid of 24% of the treated fat cells.*
How does platelet-rich plasma (PRP) rejuvenate your skin?
PRP uses growth factors found in platelets to regenerate the substances and tissues that make your skin strong and healthy. PRP is made on-site by taking a sample your blood, then separating platelets and plasma to create a PRP injection.
When your Avante provider injects platelets and plasma into your skin’s problem areas, the growth factors do their job: They stimulate the growth of collagen, blood vessels, and tissues that rejuvenate your skin.
