Hormone Replacement in Arlington & Colleyville
What is Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Hormone replacement therapy is a bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) in the form of estrogen and testosterone subcutaneous pellets. These pellets are used to help with the symptoms of hormone imbalance in men and women. Such symptoms may include fatigue, acne, thinning hair, decreased libido, vaginal dryness, hot flashes, weight gain near the middle area of the abdomen, inability for men to obtain/maintain an erection, and/or brain fog or low mental clarity.
How Does it Work?
Pellets are made of custom-compounded hormones that look like small grains of rice and are inserted under the skin. The pellets are then naturally absorbed by the body over a several-month period. For women, the procedure is normally repeated every three to four months. For men, the procedure is normally repeated every six months. The range for women and men simply depends on how the body absorbs the pellets, and when the beneficial effects begin to wean down.
Why Choose This Over Other Hormone Replacement Therapies?
Pellets are bio-identical, which means they are more like the natural hormones your body makes. This bio-identical aspect is what sets the pellets above the other hormone options available such as creams, injections, and non-bio-identical hormone pellets. With BHRT, your risk of side effects from hormones are lessened.
Who Would Benefit?
Any patient who is already suffering from hormone imbalance symptoms.
Where Are the Pellets Placed?
The pellets are placed under the skin in a few places, including the buttock or flank (the side of the back, also often called “love handles”). At Glo & Glam MedSpa & Skin Care, we choose to place the pellets in the buttock as long as the patient has adequate tissue in that area for insertion of pellets.
Are There Health Benefits or Just Symptom Improvement?
Many patients ask if this is simply to help with hot flashes and decreased libido. While those are benefits of BHRT, they are not the only benefits. Many patients notice brain fog and fatigue when suffering from imbalanced hormones. These symptoms can also be improved with BHRT. Additionally, there are many research studies that discuss heart and brain health in relation to optimized hormones.
The medical providers at Glo & Glam MedSpa & Skin Care have completed extensive training to learn all the science behind BHRT, as well as hands-on training about pellet placement. Our team is very experienced in placing the pellets and knows how to make the patient feel the most at ease during the whole procedure.
