As we age, our bodies naturally produce less of certain hormones, such as human growth hormone (HGH), insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), estrogen, and testosterone. This decrease in hormones can lead to a variety of age-related issues, such as dry skin, wrinkles, and decreased muscle mass. Fortunately, anti-aging hormone therapy can help to restore these hormones to their optimal levels and reduce the effects of aging. One of the main hormones used in anti-aging therapy is DHEA.
This hormone is a precursor to other hormones, such as estrogen and testosterone. Studies have shown that DHEA can help to thicken and tighten the skin, as well as increase skin hydration. It can also help to reduce wrinkles and improve the health and appearance of the skin. In addition to DHEA, other hormones used in anti-aging therapy include estrogen, testosterone, thyroid hormone, and progesterone.
Estrogen has been shown to increase skin hydration and reduce skin atrophy. Testosterone can improve the health and appearance of the skin. Thyroid hormone deficiency can cause dry skin and hair loss, but getting patients to reach levels in the normal (optimal) high range can improve skin and hair as well as reduce weight. Progesterone can improve skin, sleep, and anxiety.
Bio-identical hormones are also used in anti-aging therapy. These hormones are identical to those produced by the body and have been shown to increase skin hydration and reduce skin atrophy. They can also help to improve mood, sleep, and energy levels. It is important to note that anti-aging hormone therapy should only be done under the supervision of a qualified medical professional.
Hormones should not be taken unless a clear deficiency has been established by proper evaluation. In addition, using HGH for a condition that is not approved, such as muscle building or as an anti-aging treatment in older adults, is illegal.
