From metabolism to our mood, hormones affect every aspect of how our body functions. As we age, our hormones decline and fall out of balance, resulting in troubling symptoms including fatigue, hot flashes, low sex drive, weight gain, mood swings and depression. Fortunately, help is available to restore hormonal balance and well-being with bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) in Cedar Park, TX.*
What is BHRT?
BHRT (Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy) uses natural hormones and not the synthetic forms that are found in traditional hormone replacement therapy. All-natural bio-identical hormones are a precise biochemical match to your own hormones. This means they can be easily absorbed and processed by the body.
Biote Medical Hormone Pellet Therapy is the only method of hormone replacement therapy that provides sustained hormone levels throughout the day, for up to 4 to 6 months, without any “roller coaster” effect. Now…that’s easy!
With this in mind, some of the benefits and improvements a patient can receive from Hormone Replacement Therapy include:
- Emotional balance
- Muscle mass
- Excess fat
- Sexual function
- Sense of well-being
How does it work?
Your age management package will include a thorough consultation with Dr. Laurette Smith, who is also our owner and medical director.
-Dr. Smith will review your medical history, current symptoms and detailed lab work and if you qualify for hormone therapy, an appointment for the exact pellet insertion will be done by Dr. Smith.
-Pellet insertion is a relatively simple in-office procedure done under local anesthesia. It takes an average of 15-30 minutes in total.
-The pellets are inserted subcutaneously (under the fatty lining of skin) in the upper buttocks through a very small incision.
-The incision is then closed with sterile tape strips. Dr. Smith perfoms all the insertions.
Within a week to ten days after your pellet insertion, Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) begins to work, and BioTE Medical patients are back to their active lifestyles.
