Female Hormone Replacement Sydney
Female hormone replacement therapy returns the balance of hormones back to its normal state by replacing the ones the female body no longer makes with identical hormones, with the dose and duration of hormones depending on the individual’s needs.
By having hormones returned back to normal, women can experience benefits such as having more energy, increased sex drive, control of mood swings, decrease in night sweats and hot flushes, better skin texture and elasticity after the menopause. This is a treatment that can help relieve the symptoms experienced after going through the menopause and it is offered by Verve Cosmetic Clinic and is conducted by Dr Alia Nasser, our leading cosmetic surgeon in Sydney.
