What Are Bio-Identical Hormones?
Bio-identical hormones are natural compounds derived from plants, carefully designed to have the same molecular structure as human hormones. These hormones, estradiol and testosterone, are individually compressed into a small pellet, roughly the size of a cooked grain of rice. They are placed under the skin during a brief in-office visit.
Who Should Consider Hormone Optimization?
Women with low testosterone or estrogen levels often encounter symptoms such as fatigue, mood swings, sleep disturbances, hot flashes, and more. These issues arise due to significant hormonal fluctuations. Sub-optimal levels can affect women of any age and can be assessed through a simple lab test. BHRT can help alleviate these symptoms by restoring and balancing these hormone levels.
As men age, their testosterone levels naturally decline. Men undergo a gradual decline in testosterone production, usually beginning in their 30’s, but men of all ages can be affected. This results in having symptoms such as low sex drive, fatigue, weight gain, low muscle mass, mood fluctuations, and diminishing muscle strength. BHRT treatment can aid these individuals in regaining vitality and a sense of youthful vigor.
What to Expect?
After obtaining blood tests, we evaluate your current hormone levels. This allows us to assess your specific needs and requirements. A personalized treatment plan will be designed specifically for you during a consultation with one of our highly trained physicians.
If we determine treatment will benefit you, the hormone pellet insertion procedure will take place in-office. Following the administration of local anesthesia to numb the area, a small incision is made to allow for pellet placement. The hormone pellets are then introduced through the incision, and a small bandage is applied to cover the site. Pellets are inserted just beneath the skin, typically in the hip/gluteal region. Over time, tiny blood vessels form around the pellets, enabling the direct release of hormones into the bloodstream through surrounding capillaries. This consistently delivers a steady level of hormones to the body. Once the pellets are fully absorbed, new ones can be inserted as needed.
Why is Pellet Therapy preferred?
Pellet therapy has been extensively studied and documented in medical literature since 1939, providing confidence in its efficacy and safety. Hormone Optimization with pellets offers a consistent and sustained release, eliminating the need for daily dosing or frequent injections. This ensures a more stable and balanced hormone profile, which minimizes the risk of fluctuations and side effects often associated with other methods.
BHRT with pellets not only gives you the benefits of hormone optimization but also gives you back your freedom. It offers the convenience of fewer treatments, typically 2-3 treatments annually with only 4-6 lab draws per year, so you don’t have to reschedule your life to regain it.
