What Is Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Hormones regulate just about every system and function of the body. As we age, our natural levels of hormones can decrease, affecting energy levels, mental focus, sexual function, appearance, and overall health. Most are common with the effects of menopause on women, but men are also affected by drops in hormone levels. At Ciao Bella Medical Spa, Dr. Jon Ricks and his team offer cutting-edge hormone replacement therapy in Frisco, TX to help men and women balance their hormone levels for improved sexual health, mental health, energy, focus, and well-being. If you're not quite feeling like you used to or are experiencing the negative impacts of menopause, contact our office today to learn more about hormone replacement therapy and to schedule a consultation with our experienced team.
"The staff and Dr. Jon T. Ricks are always professional and happy. It’s calming to walk into a low stress office for the patient. He’s thorough and friendly. The new office is awesome."- L. / Google / Jun 10, 2021
"Dr.Ricks is a great doctor he’s compassionate and understanding he also takes time to listen to what I have to say instead of trying to rush me out which is very important. He also takes time to call to check on me after the many surgeries that I have had and that says a lot. Dr. Ricks goes over and beyond for his patients. A doctor that goes that extra mile and still has time to run a full time business says a lot. THANK YOU DR.RICKS."- A.B. / Google / Jan 20, 2022

"I have had the best treatments from Ciao Bella. I absolutely love Trish and Kayla. First treatment was the Alma Hybrid and have had the most amazing results. My face looks amazing after only 4 weeks!"- M.M. / Google / Jul 15, 2022
"On my birthday, I looked in the mirror and thought to myself, look how smooth my forehead looks now! All thanks to Trish and Kayla, the fabulous “mother daughter duo” at Ciao Bella med spa. I knew after my very first consultation with Trish that I was in caring and capable hands. I explained to her that I wanted to soften the appearance of my laugh lines, crows feet and forehead wrinkles. I also explained to her that my skin is extremely sensitive and hormonal. Trish recommended the CleatLift and we decided together to take a very conservative approach with my skin.I had sessions with both Trish and Kayla and they were both so sweet. After a few sessions I noticed that my skin was more radiant and glowing. My jawline is tighter and my melasma is less noticeable. Since I was so happy with the results of the ClearLift, I decided to go in for Botox injections. I’ve had Botox in the past but I was still anxious. Again Trish was so patient with me. She took her time and explained the location and amount of each injection. She wanted to take a conservative approach, giving me less toxin at first resulting in a more natural look. Plus I didn’t feel a thing! It was such a pleasant experience and I am thrilled with the results. I’m looking forward to my follow up visit next week. Thank you"- N.L. / Google / Jul 03, 2022
How Does Hormone Replacement Therapy Work?
Hormone replacement therapy works to supplement your body's hormone levels with lab-produced hormones or bioidentical hormones (typically plant-based) via a small pellet inserted under the skin, injections, or pills. For women, typically this means estrogen supplementation; for men, it is testosterone. Once you begin your hormone replacement therapy, your hormone levels will begin to rise (usually around 4 – 8 weeks) to the levels they were at when you were younger. The effects can be dramatic, increasing energy, libido, and sexual function, improving memory and concentration, enhancing skin health and appearance, reducing or improving hair loss, reducing the side effects of menopause, and much more.
Am I A Candidate For Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Candidates for hormone replacement therapy typically include people over the age of 40 experiencing age-related declines in hormone levels. Usually, this means women experiencing the effects of menopause (hot flashes, weight gain, sleep issues, etc.) and men experiencing andropause (drops in testosterone levels) which can cause muscle loss, low energy, sexual dysfunction, etc. People with a history of certain cancers, stroke, heart disease, liver disease, or may be pregnant or considering becoming pregnant may not be a candidate for hormone replacement therapy. During your consultation with our team, we will listen to your concerns and review your medical history to determine the best method of hormone replacement and that you're a good candidate for this transformative procedure.
