The Benefits of Hormone Pellet Therapy
Hormone replacement or hormone optimization therapy is a modality that many women and men are turning to as they begin aging. Bio-identical hormone optimization has been around since the 1930s, and in our clinical practice can really help improve the quality of life for so many of our patients. More and more people are discovering just how easy and effective optimizing hormones can be. In our clinical practice, we have found hormone pellet therapy to be the most effective method of hormone optimization. We love the results that come into so many of our patients lives with this hormone replacement modality. As women, begin approaching peri/menopause they become more susceptible to improper hormone levels and the effects. Testosterone therapy has numerous benefits, to the peri/menopausal female.
What Is Hormone Pellet Therapy?
Hormone Pellet Therapy uses hormones extracted from natural plant materials to replicate the body’s normal hormone levels. In some cases, we may even shoot for a therapeutic range of certain hormones. With this therapy, small implants are placed just under the skin and over time, they release tiny and regular doses of hormones into the body, maintaining correct and natural levels. In our clinical experience, we have found that treatments, such as oral and transdermal therapy, produce inconsistent levels of hormones and just do not offer the same result. We love how hormone pellet therapy releases a constant flow of hormones into the body, avoiding those negative effects. Since the hormones used are from a natural source, this method is perfect for patients who don’t want synthetic hormones pumped into their bodies.
Insertion of the bio-identical hormone pellet is an in-office procedure. There is very little to no pain. The doctor applies a local anesthetic, and makes a very small incision in the upper hip area. The actual pellet, which is slightly larger than a grain of rice, is then inserted. There are no stitches! The skin margins line up and steri-strips, a tegaderm and waterproof bandage stay on for 4 days while the incision heals!
