How does bioidentical hormone therapy work?

Bioidentical hormones are processed hormones that come from plants and are designed so your body uses them in the same way it uses your own hormones. Estrogen, progesterone and testosterone are the most commonly used bioidentical hormones.

Unlike other bioidentical hormone therapies that use topical or injection-based therapies, the Biote pellet therapy uses tiny, custom-compounded pellets that are customized for each patient based on a comprehensive consultation and extensive lab work. Biote hormone pellets work with the chemistry of the body because they replicate the molecular structure of the hormones that normally occur within the body.

What can I expect from receiving bioidentical hormone therapy?

Since Biote pellets are customized for each patient depending on what they need, results may vary. However, bioidentical hormone therapy can relieve a wide variety of symptoms for both men and women. 

For women, studies have shown that Biote pellet therapy can:

  • Combat the effects of menopause
  • Improve mood
  • Increase bone density
  • Improve heart health
  • Improve memory loss or confusion
  • Increase libido or interest in sex
  • Improve sleep problems
  • Improve vaginal dryness
  • Reduce weight gain
  • And more

For men, studies have shown that Biote pellet therapy can:

  • Combat the effects of andropause
  • Improve memory loss or confusion
  • Increase libido or interest in sex
  • Improve mood
  • Increase bone density
  • Improve heart health
  • Decrease anxiousness
  • Reduce weight gain
  • And more

How long do Biote pellets last?

Biote hormone pellets last 3-6 months depending on the patient’s gender, weight, absorption rates and the amount of deficiency or surplus hormones present within the patient at the time of insertion. 

Our team of expert providers will reinsert pellets 2-4 times per year to help keep hormones optimized and balanced. It may take up to two insertions before patients feel the full benefits of Biote hormone therapy. 

What happens during the in-office pellet insertion?

During the in-office visit at Health + Glow, our team will numb the insertion area and ensure that you are comfortable. The insertion area is most commonly the upper buttocks. After the area is numbed, one of our expert providers will make a small incision to insert the hormone pellet.

Since pellets are bioidentical and contain hormones that mimic those in the body, pellets are dissolved and absorbed. While some patients may feel results quickly, it may take up to two insertions to feel the full benefits.
