The human body goes through quite a few changes during aging. Changing hormone levels can make you feel exhausted like you’re losing your focus or your sex drive. Aging tissue develops less hair, leaving your head feeling exposed. Fortunately, Anteneh Roba, MD, and his expert team at Zinnia Aesthetics & Anti-Aging Clinic in Fairfax, Virginia offer anti-aging treatments to give your body what it needs to restore balance, helping you feel normal again.

How does hormone replacement work?
Hormone replacement does exactly what it sounds like. This treatment replenishes the hormones in your body that it fails to produce over time. As you age, your body naturally produces fewer hormones. You feel this hormone loss in significant ways.
Because the hormone balance in your body is no longer what it used to be, you may not feel like your usual self. You may feel lethargic, unfocused, moody, or dispassionate about your sex life.
Zinnia Aesthetics & Anti-Aging Clinic offers bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) instead of the commonly used synthetic hormones. When you give your body BHRT, the bio-identical nature of these hormones makes it easier for your body to absorb them, minimizing your symptoms from natural hormone loss while minimizing the risk of side effects.
Can hormone replacement work for men and women?
Absolutely. Hormone replacement is a common treatment for women experiencing unwanted symptoms as a result of perimenopause, full menopause, and postmenopause. This treatment can minimize hot flashes, night sweats, problems focusing, memory loss, and mood swings. By replenishing the hormones in your body, you can get a better night’s sleep, regain control of your brain, and reinvigorate your sex drive. What’s more, BHRT can help fend off osteoporosis and muscle loss.
Hormone replacement is also an effective treatment for men. While it’s common knowledge that women go through menopause, men do too. Male menopause, sometimes called andropause, is marked by a lowered production of testosterone. This can bring about symptoms including fatigue, mood changes, diminished sex drive, decreased muscle mass, and erectile dysfunction. Hormone replacement is a tool that can help you replenish your body with what it needs and reverse these symptoms.
Do you offer hair restoration treatments?
Yes! Zinnia Aesthetics & Anti-Aging Clinic uses the power of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to stimulate hair growth. Everyone’s blood naturally contains platelets that are full of healing agents called growth factors.
By taking a small sampling of your blood and separating out the platelets, your doctor can create a powerful solution that spurs growth in your body. Injecting it into your scalp is a proven way to repair and rejuvenate damaged tissue, encouraging the growth of new hair.
