Women’s wellness and health needs differ from men because of their reproductive organs. The experienced team at Woodlands Wellness and Cosmetic Center understands the unique health needs of women and offers specialized care to address their specific health needs.
Though men and women are at risk of developing many of the same chronic health conditions, there are certain health issues that only affect women or are more common in women. Some of the conditions the team at Woodlands Wellness and Cosmetic Center specialize in include:
Perimenopause and menopause are a normal part of a woman’s aging process. As you get older, production of estrogen and progesterone slows down. During this period, referred to as perimenopause, you may experience a range of symptoms, such as hot flashes, night sweats, and weight gain, before you officially reach menopause (12 consecutive months without menstruation).
Though the severity of symptoms vary from woman to woman, for some perimenopause and menopause can disrupt daily life. But with help from the team at Woodlands Wellness and Cosmetic Center you get relief from your symptoms.
Your thyroid is a small gland in your neck that produces hormones collectively referred to as the thyroid hormones. These hormones play an essential role in managing your body’s metabolism, mood, and digestion.
Though thyroid disorders affect both men and women, they’re more common in women. A decrease in thyroid hormone production may cause depression, difficulty losing weight, and hair loss. The experts at Woodlands Wellness and Cosmetic Center specialize in thyroid management and provide the care you need to restore hormone balance and alleviate symptoms.
Too much stress and not enough rest may deplete your body’s cortisol levels. Cortisol is a hormone made in your adrenal gland that helps you manage stress. When your cortisol levels are depleted you may experience chronic fatigue, depression, low blood sugar, headaches, or anxiety, which are symptoms associated with adrenal fatigue.
The experienced team offers hormone replacement therapy to restore women’s wellness and health. During your consultation, the team asks detailed questions about your symptoms, medical and family history, and then performs a physical.
To assess hormone balance, the team runs a comprehensive blood system test, which is then used to develop your personalized treatment plan. To restore hormone balance, the team uses bioidentical hormones, which are a more natural form of hormone therapy and nearly identical in structure to the hormones produced by your body.
