About Hormone Therapy
Hormonal imbalance can affect men and women both, causing frustrating symptoms, such as low sex drive, mood swings, and fatigue. But at Thaker Cosmetic and Wellness in Las Vegas, patients can receive an effective and lasting solution with hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Board-certified family practitioner Dr. Reuben Thaker offers HRT with bioidentical hormone pellets that are inserted beneath the skin. During a consultation prior to your treatment, Dr. Thaker will ask about your lifestyle and medical history and perform a blood panel before recommending a course of treatment. After determining that you are an ideal candidate for the procedure, your custom compounded pellet will be inserted beneath the skin in your lower back/upper thigh area during a quick, outpatient office procedure.

"I went in for a hydro facial which was the first for me. I scheduled my appointment with Rita. The facility was very inviting and the room was very tranquil. When I laid down on the bed, I noticed it was nice and warm and extremely comfortable. Rita was very accommodating and explained everything that was going on during the facial. This facial was so relaxing and made me feel and look like I was glowing. Can't wait to try this again very soon. Rita even followed up with me the next day to see how my skin was feeling! Great service and even greater customer service!!!"- V.L. / Yelp / Jun 29, 2019
"Amazing facility! The equipment is all up to date and very clean. I had laser hair removal, microdermabrasion and hydration facial (done by Rita) all with noticeable changes before I walked out of the door. Can't recommend this place enough."- A.D. / Google / Jun 07, 2019
"I've been here a handful of times now, and always come out feeling better than when I came in. Dr. Thaker is kind and straightforward, and will work with you to make sure you get the treatment that works for you & your body. If something is not right for you, he won't do it, and I appreciate that honesty; especially in an industry where you may be able to find a doctor who will give you what you want, as long as you're willing to shell out - even if your body won't respond well to it or if could be hazardous to your health. I've come in and had microdermabrasion and hydrofacials done by Rita C., who is a wonderful medical esthetician with a great bedside manner. She always puts me at ease, and the treatments are relaxing and relatively painless - everyone's pain levels are different! But Rita has a gentle touch & I can practically nap while I'm getting it done. The hydrofacials have done wonders for my complexion, and have minimized the areas where I have hyperpigmentation and adult acne. The spa itself is sparkling clean, with all the latest equipment. Their prices are reasonable and they're quick to respond if you have any questions leading up to your appointment. Definitely give them a try if you're looking to treat yourself."- T.N. / Google / Apr 16, 2019
The ideal candidate for HRT is any man and woman who is suffering from a lack of sufficient testosterone, estrogen, or progesterone who has been deemed healthy enough for treatment. To determine your candidacy, Dr. Thaker will perform a medical examination and obtain a blood panel to ascertain your current hormone levels. At this time, your pellets will be custom compounded to meet your specific needs.
You customized pellet will be inserted into your lower hip/upper buttock area in a straightforward, fast procedure that is performed in the comfort of one of our procedure rooms. We will numb the area with a local anesthetic before creating a very small incision in the treatment site. Lastly, Dr. Thaker will insert the pellet beneath the skin and cover the area with a small bandage. The incision site is so small that it does not require stitches. Patients are able to leave our facility immediately following the procedure.
Frequently Asked Questions
How will you test my current hormone levels?
Dr. Thaker will perform a comprehensive blood panel to determine your hormone levels before treatment. These blood tests will continue throughout the course of your treatment so we can monitor your hormone levels and compound your pellets to meet your specific needs.
What causes hormone imbalances?
Hormone imbalance occurs as we age, and our hormone levels begin to deplete naturally. Most individuals experience hormonal imbalance beginning in their 40s regardless of their diet and exercise routine or their lifestyle.
How are bioidentical hormones prepared?
After a detailed consultation and evaluation, Dr. Thaker will prescribe a unique combination of hormones to treat your symptoms and address your individual needs. The prescriptions are then filled by a bioidentical hormone compounding pharmacy where your pellets will be custom made to meet your unique hormone profile.
What are the long-term health benefits of hormone replacement therapy?
HRT helps men and women reduce the risks of many of the diseases associated with aging, including cancer, heart disease, osteoporosis, stroke, and senility. HRT pellets also treat fatigue, mood swings, and low sex-drive, helping men and women to feel more energy and enjoy a higher quality of life.
What to Expect
While you will be able to return to your normal daily activities immediately following the procedure, any type of exercise that involves the lower body should be avoided. Once the site has healed and the bandage is removed, patients can return to their standard exercise routine. Dr. Thaker also advises patients not to swim, take a bath, or soak in a hot tub until their incision site has healed. Your HRT pellet will dissolve naturally over time and be absorbed by your body. Dr. Thaker will help you recognize when to return to Thaker Cosmetic and Wellness for your next pellet.
