How Our Hormone Optimization Program Can Help You

Every woman is familiar with the way changing hormones affect her physically and mentally. After decades of hormonal fluctuation during the menstrual cycle, hormone shifts feel like “par for the course” by the time a woman reaches menopause.

For men, the changes might be less widely discussed, but aging still comes with hormonal shifts and resulting symptoms that are far from welcome. 

Fortunately, Dawn Woods, ARNP, and our expert team at Revive Medical Aesthetics offer BioTE® hormone optimization for both men and women at our medical spa in Longview, Washington. 

With this bioidentical hormone treatment, we can rebalance your hormone levels, bringing women relief from hot flashes, mood changes, and other symptoms, and helping men experience a more sustained sex drive, less muscle loss, and other benefits. 

The toll of changing hormones

Hormonal changes affect men and women differently:


As you approach menopause, your body slows its production of the key hormones estrogen and progesterone. It also makes less testosterone, which can lessen your sex drive.

Ultimately, as your body decreases hormone production, you may experience a broad range of symptoms. 

These can include:

Ultimately, as they approach and enter menopause, many women just don’t feel like themselves anymore. As the changes in their body affect them physically, mentally, and emotionally, many wonder if they’ll ever feel their best again.


Once you reach age 30, your testosterone levels dip by about 1% each year. This leaves you with issues like:

Ultimately, the changes that come as your body produces less and less testosterone aren’t ideal. But you’re not stuck with them. 

Enter hormone optimization. 

How hormone optimization works

With this treatment, our Revive Medical Aesthetics team can introduce the hormones your body is no longer making on its town. And with BioTE, these hormones are bioidentical, meaning your body can’t tell them apart from the hormones it naturally produces.

By supplementing your hormone levels, we can rebalance them to their previous state. In short, we can turn back the clock, reversing the changes you’ve been experiencing lately. 

As certified providers of BioTE, we place an extremely small pellet (smaller than a grain of rice) just under your skin in your buttocks. There, the pellet slowly releases the hormones you need to feel your best.

We work with you to find the right schedule for pellet placement for your hormone optimization. Most people feel their best with a new pellet every 4-6 months. Talk to our team so we can develop a personalized hormone optimization treatment plan for you. 

Are you experiencing unwelcome changes as you get older? You’re not stuck with them. To learn more about hormone optimization and to find out if it’s right for you, call our team at Revive Medical Aesthetics or email us at today.
