Optimized Hormone Levels Through Pellet Therapy
Hormone pellets are derived from plants, just like other forms of bioidentical hormone replacement therapies. They are naturally-based and structurally identical to the hormones produced by the human body. Pellets are available for both testosterone and estradiol hormone therapy. Each pellet is quite small (about the size of a grain of rice) and is inserted into an incision made to the upper hip area during a simple, in-office procedure. Following insertion, the body slowly begins to metabolize the pellet, releasing a steady, natural dose of hormones (much like the body does under normal function) over the course of three to six months. Pellets duration depends on how quickly they are metabolized in the body.
Pellet Therapy Benefits:
Convenient, no hassle dosing
The pellet is inserted and goes to work, avoiding the need to remember to take a pill or apply cream. Since the pellet is slowly metabolized by the body over time, patients don’t have to worry if they took too much or not enough.
Pellets are designed to work with each patient’s body chemistry, releasing a natural dose of hormones throughout the treatment cycle.
Local anesthetic is applied to the injection site, a tiny incision is made in the skin and the pellet is put into place by trained medical staff and sealed with a piece of medical tape. There is no need for stitches or to be concerned with scarring.
