Hormone Changes Over Time
As we age, and with certain changes in our lifestyle, many of us will notice increased symptoms of hormonal imbalances. If you’re a man, at first you may only notice that you’ve put on some weight, are tired a lot or are more forgetful than usual. Women may first notice that their nails and hair have become brittle, or that acne has suddenly reappeared after years of hiding. These symptoms will often worsen and others may appear before a person seeks out treatment, many times being diagnosed with something that is, in fact, a symptom like depression or low blood pressure. Luckily, the majority of these symptoms, along with their cause, are cured with a tiny implant placed into the hip area a few times a year. The procedure can be done in-office and is a simple outpatient procedure, meaning you won’t have to take time off from work or cancel that trip to the beach to fit it in.
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)
What Is It?
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is similar to standard hormone replacement therapy offered by conventional doctors but differs in that the hormones are derived from plants, not animals, and are biologically and chemically more similar to those produced by our own bodies.
How Does It Work?
During BHRT a small hormone pellet is implanted under the skin through a small incision made in your hip. After about a week, the pellet will then begin to release the hormones, helping your body begin to replace the missing ones causing your list of seemingly mysterious ailments. Novopelle is proud to be one of the premier med spas offering BioTE, a hormone pellet that is compounded in an FDA approved outsourcing center and that has strict testing guidelines regarding their products. Our professionals are certified and adhere to the highest standard of care when it comes to our clients.
Why Do I Want It?
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy pellets offer several benefits in general over the other forms of replacement therapy. First, the pellet being inserted under the skin means that your body is receiving a constant dose, unlike injections and pills that may cause hormone levels to fluctuate even more rapidly. Second, the pellets, being plant-derived, are made of optimized hormones structurally identical to those found in our own bodies. This means that you may find that you have fewer negative interactions and side effects than with other therapy methods and that you reap more of the benefits that you were hoping to get with conventional therapy methods.
The benefits of the optimized hormones don’t stop there though, and BHRT isn’t just for certain age groups. Women who have experienced hysterectomies, menopause, and who must take other hormone diminishing medical treatments have found relief with BHRT. Research shows that it may also be effective in treating symptoms of Alzheimer’s Disease, Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, heart disease and thyroid function problems in women. Those who come with complaints of dark spots on the skin and brittle nails will often notice the drastic anti-aging effect BHRT can have when their hair no longer breaks off after a simple brushing.
Many men who seek out testosterone therapy do so because they are plagued by sexual health related problems including erectile dysfunction and low sex drive, which are common complaints of men with low hormone levels. They may notice clearer skin and other anti-aging effects including finger and toenails that are much stronger and hair regrowth. Beneficial effects in treating symptoms in men of diabetes, metabolic disorders and Parkinson’s disease with BioTE testosterone therapy pellets have been reported as well.
