Hormone pellet therapy is a hormone replacement option that works by delivering a steady stream of supplemental hormones. This is an outstanding treatment for those who suffer from symptoms of hormonal imbalance.
To understand hormone pellet therapy, it helps to think about the role that hormones play in healthy bodily function. Hormones act as chemical messengers, telling your organs and systems when and how to work.
Some of the most impactful hormones are estrogen and testosterone, which both women and men produce. Other important hormones include adrenal hormone and progesterone. When these hormones become unbalanced, widespread symptoms can follow.
Some of the symptoms of hormonal imbalance are the same for women and men. These include:
Women might notice the following changes:
Men might encounter the following changes:
While these changes are a normal part of the aging process, that doesn’t mean you have to accept them as inevitable. Hormone replacement therapy can help you sustain a healthy hormonal balance.
There are many ways to get supplemental hormones. You can choose oral medications, creams, or injections. Pellet therapy works by releasing a steady stream of carefully balanced hormones by way of small pellets injected just beneath the surface of your skin.
Your nurse practitioner at New Beginnings Med Spa uses a hollow needle to place the pellets, which are around the size of a grain of rice. Over time, the pellets dissolve, delivering hormones at just the right volume. Pellet therapy avoids the ups and downs associated with other forms of hormone replacement therapy.
Most patients begin to notice symptom relief within 2-4 weeks. The full extent of pellet hormone benefits develops around six months after beginning treatment. Your treatment plan is adjustable once you and your practitioner understand how your body responds to supplemental hormone therapy.
New Beginnings Med Spa uses bioidentical hormones. These types of hormones are created from plant sources and share the exact chemical structure as the hormones your body produces naturally. Other options use animal sources, including the urine from pregnant horses.
