BioTe Hormone Replacement Therapy
As we age, our hormones can develop imbalances. Chronic health conditions or a sedentary lifestyle can impact hormones. Hormone imbalance can cause a number of unpleasant side effects for people of all genders.
Our medspa offers BioTe hormone therapy, which delivers bioidentical hormones through subcutaneous pellet therapy. After a thorough exam and lab work to determine a patient’s precise hormone optimization needs, pellet therapy provides hormones steadily and automatically to the body.
Is hormone optimization safe?
Yes, because BioTe hormone therapy uses bioidentical hormones, which are derived from natural sources. At the molecular level, they function like hormones produced by the body and cause fewer side effects than synthetic hormones.
What is pellet therapy and how does it work?
Pellets are very small, custom-compounded therapies for symptoms stemming from hormonal imbalances. This type of therapy results in hormone levels remaining consistent throughout the day. Pellet therapy avoids “peaks and valleys” that may occur with other delivery mechanisms, such as topical creams or oral medications.
Small pellets are inserted subcutaneously via an incision in the upper buttock area, during an in-office visit to our medspa facility. After that, return for a six-week check up, then return every few months to have new pellets implanted.
What benefits can I expect from BioTe hormone therapy?
The rewards of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can include sharpened mental clarity, increased muscle strength, greater energy, and an improved quality of life. Men may see fewer issues with erectile dysfunction; women may see a decrease in hormone imbalance symptoms such as low libido, vaginal dryness, night sweats, and fatigue.
