Bare Medical Spa and Laser Center , the leading medical spa in Burlington, VT, is known for its unparalleled patient care and outstanding results. Always on the cutting edge of new technology, it plans to introduce Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) in the spring of 2023.

Founded by owner Jamie Clayton Spano, who is licensed in the state of Vermont as a medical aesthetician, certified laser technician, and makeup artist, Bare Spa offers a full-service menu for every cosmetic and aesthetic need, including laser hair removal, cosmetic injections, cellulite reduction and body contouring, sclerotherapy and laser vein removal, microneedling and PRP therapy, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, CoolSculpting, and intimate wellness.

Its a team of highly trained specialists and experts, including a medical doctor, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, aestheticians, laser technicians and medical estheticians, that shares a passion for the industry and a sincere interest in helping clients meet their cosmetic goals.

BIO-IDENTICAL HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY (BHRT) We spoke to the team at Bare and they explain BHRT saying, “Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, also known as bioidentical hormone therapy or natural hormone therapy, mimic the hormones made by your body’s glands. Taking bioidentical hormones can help people who experience symptoms of low or unbalanced hormones.”

Bare Spa chose to add this particular therapy to its roster of cosmetic treatments because many of its clients complain that they suffer from symptoms related to hormone imbalances, such as weight gain, fatigue, brain fog, mood swings, hot flashes, low libido, and changes in skin, hair and metabolism. They strive to offer new services to complement what they already offer, and to stay competitive in the ever-evolving field of medical aesthetics.”


One well-known use of BHRT is treating the symptoms of menopause. Estrogen decline is associated with night sweats, hot flashes, facial hair growth, painful intercourse, vaginal dryness and an increased risk of urinary incontinence. However, it can also be used to help people lose weight since it plays an important role in managing and balancing hormones .

There are many reasons for men to try the therapy as well: Common symptoms of estrogen and testosterone imbalance include loss of libido, moodiness, irritability, depression, problems with memory and concentration, thinning hair, loss of muscle mass, weight gain, and fatigue. Low levels of testosterone can also cause erectile dysfunction, including problems getting and maintaining an erection. 


One of BHRT’s advantages is that it minimizes side effects, which can be common with other types of treatment. Because it uses bioidentical hormones, and releases them slowly, just the way your body releases natural hormones, clients don’t have to worry about the ‘peaks and valleys’ associated with pills and other therapies. And unlike creams or gels, the hormones are delivered right to your bloodstream, so they can effectively address a whole array of symptoms. Not only that, the treatment is quick, painless and life changing! 


The treatment supplies the body with hormones with the same chemical composition as natural ones. The hormones are compressed into small pellets that are inserted into the body. They release the hormones at a steady rate, administering a constant, controlled supply. Once the pellet has dissolved completely, which takes 4 to 5 months, we would then have the client return for another dose.

We are happy to learn that this effective new treatment for much of what ails us is coming our way this spring. Meanwhile, book an appointment with Bare Medical Spa + Laser Center and discover how one of its other treatments help you live life at its very best.
