Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Throughout life, our bodies will undergo many different hormonal changes, and while these issues sometimes correct themselves with time, in many cases they can be quite serious when left untreated. One type of hormone replacement therapy, Biote HRT, has proven to be a safe and highly effective way of addressing these imbalances. Here at Balle Bliss Luxury Medical Spa in Cypress, TX, Dr. Sohal and her team have been treating both men and women with this therapy with amazing results.
What Is BioTE HRT Therapy?
Biote is a type of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for both men and women that uses bioidentical hormone pellets to rebalance the two hormones testosterone and estrogen within your body. The term bioidentical means that the hormones found in these pellets are molecularly identical to the natural hormones found in your body.
Because of this, Biote HRT offers many benefits that other types of hormone replacement treatments can’t, such as a reduced risk of side effects and better binding to hormone receptors in the body. All of this adds up to more effective results and faster, longer-lasting relief of symptoms caused by hormone imbalances.
The pellets used in Biote HRT therapy are implanted just beneath the skin, where they slowly break down and dissolve, leading to a continuous release of bioidentical hormones in your bloodstream. Once dissolved, nothing remains of the pellets, so they don’t need to be removed after each treatment session.
They are not time-released pellets and instead are based on cardiac output. This means that staying regularly active and even exercising can have an effect on how quickly they dissolve.
What Happens During Treatment?
Before starting your therapy session, there’s a brief consultation that allows us to ensure that this is the right treatment for you.
We’ll first want to know about any symptoms that you might be experiencing from a hormonal imbalance, and we’ll discuss this treatment with you to answer any remaining questions you might have about it.
We’ll also want to draw your blood so that we can run a diagnostic blood panel to check your hormonal levels, which will then be assessed along with your symptoms to look for any correlations that might explain why you’ve been feeling off or having issues. If you’re currently taking any other hormone replacement medications, you’ll need to stop taking these on the day that we draw your blood, though you can resume them afterward as you transition off them.
Who Is a Good Candidate for This Therapy?
Biote therapy can be an extremely effective option for treating many different issues related to hormonal imbalances, but it’s not for everyone. If any of the following conditions apply to you, then you may be a candidate for this therapy:
Biote, as its name suggests, uses hormones that are identical to those your endocrine system naturally produces. There’s much less risk of your body rejecting these pellets compared to other treatments, and because they dissolve very slowly over time, there’s also less risk of side effects.
