If you don’t have the energy you used to or are experiencing mood swings, poor quality sleep, and brain fog, a hormonal imbalance could be to blame. At Proage Institute of Regenerative Medicine, conveniently located in both Houston and Brownsville, TX, we offer hormone pellets that will help you balance your hormones, maintain optimal levels, with just a few follow-up treatments each year.
How Quickly Do Hormone Pellets Work?
Once you undergo your first pellet therapy treatment, the pellets that are inserted below your skin’s surface will slowly absorb into your bloodstream. They will gradually raise your hormones to an optimal level. Most patients start to feel positive changes within days of their treatment, and their symptoms dissipate over the next two to three weeks.
Results continue to improve as the pellets continue to deliver the necessary hormones to your body. It may take up to eight weeks to feel the full effect of this treatment. During this time, we won’t leave you out on your own. We will monitor your hormone levels and make adjustments as needed to experience the benefits of balance hormones.
What Are Hormone Pellets?
Hormone pellets are tiny compounded pellets that contain the exact amount of hormones your body needs. This therapy is growing in popularity because it helps patients get the hormones they need, but the method is very low maintenance. Long-term, this approach helps patients get the benefits of balanced hormones without thinking about taking a pill, administering an injection, or wearing a patch from one week to the next.
Who Are They Right For?
Hormone pellets can help both men and women achieve optimal hormonal levels. During an initial consultation, we will review your symptoms, measure your hormone levels, and then discuss the ins and outs of this treatment to help determine if it is the right choice for you. Then, we will proceed with your treatment and begin the hormone balancing therapy.
Hormone pellets make an excellent choice for men and women who are experiencing a hormonal imbalance. Some of the most common symptoms of hormone imbalance among men and women include:
- Chronic fatigue
- Weight gain
- Low libido
- Vaginal dryness
- Poor quality nails
- Thinning hair or hair loss
- Poor quality sleep
- Feelings of depression or anxiety
- Mood changes
- Hot flashes
- Osteoporosis, diabetes, or cardiovascular disease
What Happens During Treatment?
Before we begin any hormone treatment, we will take some diagnostics to better understand your hormones and your levels. Once we confirm that you are deficient in certain hormones, we can begin planning your treatment. We will take into account your symptoms, your lifestyle, and your ultimate goals. Our goal is to help you live a balanced life and experience true vitality regardless of your age.
The Treatment Process
This form of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy involves the insertion of a tiny pellet filled with natural, plant-based compounded hormones prescribed for your exact needs. The most common insertion site for the pellet is in the fatty tissue of the hip. Before treatment, your hormone expert will clean your treatment site and then apply a topical numbing cream to the area.
Once the treatment site becomes numb, he will make a nearly invisible incision and insert the pellet. The incision will be closed with dissolvable stitches and will begin to absorb into the skin and eventually the bloodstream. The total appointment time only takes a few minutes, and you will be free to go about your day.
Are There Any Aftercare Requirements?
Once you undergo treatment, there are some things you should avoid to ensure optimal results. We typically recommend that you do not get the treatment site wet immediately after treatment. You should also avoid lower body workouts for three to five days to ensure that the pellet does not get dislodged or disrupted.
When you come in for your appointment, your hormone expert will provide you with a detailed list of aftercare instructions, so you know exactly what to do and what not to do so that you get the best results possible.
Is It Safe?
Hormone pellets are a safe and effective way to balance the hormones and alleviate the symptoms associated with hormonal imbalances. These pellets have been studied and proven safe and can even help protect you from certain diseases.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy uses hormones that come from natural sources, not synthetic ones. Using bioidentical hormones during treatment reduces the risk factors most commonly associated with synthetic hormones and lets you reap all the benefits.
How Often Will I Need To Undergo Treatment?
One of the benefits of pellet therapy is that it is a low maintenance treatment. Not only are the appointments quick, but you only need a few treatments each year to maintain optimal hormone levels. These pellets will provide you long-lasting results as they can deliver hormones up to six months at a time. We will monitor your progress along the way and help give you a better idea of what you are unique treatment plan will look like.
