Hormone Replacement Therapy & Weight Loss in Webster, TX | M Spa Face & Body

If you are a man or woman in or approaching your forties, you’re likely experiencing what’s commonly referred to as the “middle-age spread.” Excess pounds seem to appear out of nowhere and refuse to respond to even the most dramatic of diet and exercise changes. If you’re experiencing unexplained weight gain, you’re likely experiencing other symptoms of hormonal imbalance, including fatigue, irritability, hot flashes, depression, anxiety, poor sleep, brain fog, and more.

 

Luckily, your quality of life doesn’t have to drop with your hormones. Many men and women are benefitting from the link between hormone replacement therapy and weight loss. At M Spa Face & Body, Dr. Deborah Miller and Shauna McLaughlin, PA-C, trust the quality and effectiveness of EVEXIAS Heath Solutions’ bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for patients struggling with the effects of hormonal imbalance and weight loss. Before recommending any weight loss medications or hormone replacement products, we require an in-person consultation and labs for all our patients. From there, Dr. Miller or Physician Assistant Shauna McLaughlin will customize a program best suited for your goals.

What Is Hormone Replacement Pellet Therapy?

Pellet therapy has been around since the 1930s, but with advancements in technology, pellet therapy has evolved to be the most preferred delivery method amongst patients and providers. At M Spa Face & Body, we offer estradiol and testosterone hormone replacement pellets by EVEXIAS Health Solutions. The hormones are compounded into a tiny pellet that is injected into the upper layer of skin, just above the buttock in females and in the flank area for men.

 

While there are many different delivery options for hormone therapy, including patches, injections, creams, and pills, there are scientific advantages to choosing pellet therapy. The pellets are comprised of a pure hormone that is placed precisely where it needs to be to deliver the exact right dosage. The hormones aren’t metabolized through your digestive system, liver, or skin. Instead, when your body needs the hormones, only the necessary amount is pulled from the pellet by the surrounding blood flow.

 

Pellets can last between three and six months and will naturally dissolve into your bloodstream, so there’s no need to have them removed.

What Are the Different Types of Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Thyroid Hormone Therapy

The thyroid affects nearly every cell in the body making any dysfunction an issue. A significant percentage of our population is impacted by thyroid dysfunction, and many go undiagnosed while suffering from evident symptoms. Signs of thyroid dysfunction include constant fatigue, weight gain, depression, anxiety, and mood swings.

Fortunately, thyroid hormone imbalances can be treated, but accurate lab testing will need to be performed on all the thyroid hormones, including thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), T3, T4, reverse T3, and cortisol. Your M Spa provider will evaluate all of these hormones through your individualized program to adequately assess your thyroid function and determine the right treatment plan for you.

Estrogen Hormone Therapy

A normal part of aging for women is the depletion of their estrogen levels, particularly near middle age (40-60s). Low levels of estrogen can contribute to uncomfortable symptoms, including hot flashes, night sweats, low libido, weight gain, irritability, and more.

Women experiencing any of these symptoms related to low estrogen should have their hormone levels assessed by an expert who is trained in analyzing lab results and understands the nature of hormonal imbalances. The EvexiPEL estrogen pellet therapy is a bioidentical hormone therapy that uses the highest quality ingredients and formulation to help maintain the optimal level of estrogen for you.

Testosterone Hormone Therapy

It’s a common belief that only men need testosterone. However, both men and women need and make testosterone for optimal health. Testosterone plays a significant role in both male and female sexual health, brain health, and weight management. As testosterone levels decrease with age, many individuals start to experience a lack of focus, brain fog, low libido, weight gain, and an inability to gain muscle.

Our testosterone hormone therapy helps patients identify and restore their hormones to an optimal level and eliminate symptoms for enhanced health and well-being.

How Does Hormone Replacement Therapy Work for Weight Loss?

Hormone therapy for weight loss can help your body regulate certain hormone levels that are causing you to gain and retain weight. Hormones, including estrogen, testosterone, thyroid hormones, and cortisol, play an important role in weight gain. During a weight loss treatment, your M Spa specialist will perform tests that measure your current levels of hormones and determine which hormone replacement pellet you require to help restore your hormone balance.

 

Additionally, we use Semaglutide and Tirzepatide, two injectable medications, to help our clients achieve the slimmer physique they desire.

 

Semaglutide

Semaglutide derives from a class of medications called glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists. When injected, semaglutide acts as a naturally occurring hormone called GLP-1, which is regularly released in the gut after eating. It performs several roles in the body, including increasing insulin production and triggering the part of the brain that makes you feel full. When on semaglutide injections, you’ll notice a significant reduction in your appetite, preventing you from overeating and snacking to help you shed those stubborn pounds.

 

Tirzepatide

Like Semaglutide, when Tirzepatide is injected into the body, it mimics the naturally occurring hormones GIP and GLP-1, which are active in the gut. These hormones help you feel full sooner after you eat and keep you full for longer. Additionally, Tirzepatide slows down your digestive system, making it easier to avoid overeating and maintain portion control.

 

Tirzepatide also affects the part of your brain that controls your appetite and influences your cravings. These effects help you make better eating choices and limit your caloric intake.

Nutraceuticals Supplements at M Spa Face & Body

Our weight loss program and hormone replacement therapy options can be supported by pharmaceutical-grade supplements called Nutraceuticals. These patented formulas are designed to help our patients who are seeking treatment for hormone imbalance and weight loss achieve optimal results and further improve their overall health.

Your M Spa Face & Body provider will help you identify which supplement ideally suits your treatment plan and lifestyle.

Joining the M Spa Face & Body Weight Loss Program

To join our weight loss program, we will first send you for lab work and see you for a consultation. Medication will be ordered if approved. At the follow-up visit with your M Spa provider and nurse, they will take your weight and measurements and show you how to administer your injections. Then, you will take your medication home where you will continue your injections weekly. We will send your lab work in through your medical insurance; if you do not have medical insurance, lab work generally costs $250 out-of-pocket.

 

Throughout your weight loss program, you will meet with your nurse once a month and the provider every three months to monitor and track your progress. Labs will be checked every six months.

Joining the M Spa Face & Body Hormone Replacement Therapy

To get started on our hormone replacement therapy, we require that you complete the hormone replacement paperwork and we will send you to get labs done prior to your appointment. We can send lab work using your insurance provider, but if you do not have insurance, it will cost $250 out-of-pocket for all lab work.

What Are the Benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy is for the treatment of hormone imbalance-related conditions like andropause (low testosterone in men), menopause, premenstrual syndrome, premenstrual dysmorphic disorder, and thyroid dysfunction. Hormone replacement therapy can also reduce or eliminate symptoms of aging, including:

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Mood swings
  • Muscle atrophy
  • Stubborn abdominal fat
  • Lack of sleep or poor sleep
  • Fatigue
  • Low energy
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Irritability
  • Brain fog or lack of focus
  • Low libido

 

By choosing bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, you are treating your symptoms at the source for a healthier, higher quality of life.

Are There Any Side Effects with Hormone Replacement Therapy & Weight Loss Injections?

Hormone replacement therapy using bioidentical hormones, compared to non-bioidentical or artificial hormone therapies, is far safer and more effective. However, when beginning treatment with any new medications, it’s always a good idea to talk with your provider about your medical history and make them aware of the details of your health.

In rare cases, some patients experience sudden or severe headaches, blurry vision, slurred speech, dizziness, or shortness of breath. These symptoms are typical with patients who have blood clotting issues. This is one of the main reasons we insist on having lab work done on our patients before receiving treatments so that we can ensure our program will be safe and effective for you.
