Bio-identical hormone therapy involves the use of synthetic hormones that mimic the body’s own estrogen or testosterone. With bio-identical hormone therapy, both men and women can improve their overall wellness and quality of life, relieving them from the bothersome symptoms of aging.
Andropause refers to a significant drop in testosterone in men with age, while menopause refers to a drop in estrogen in women. These typically occur in the late 40s and early 50s. With hormone therapy, patients can expect these benefits:
- Relief from night sweats
- Decreased hot flashes
- Increased energy
- Improved libido
- Improved bone density
Hormones also play an important role in regulating your mood. A lack of hormones can result in mental side effects like irritability and mood swings. With hormone therapy, patients experience:
- Improved mood
- Decreased anxiety
- Increased motivation
- Overall feeling of well-being

Placing the pellets for hormone therapy is simple and comfortable. Only a tiny incision is required for the pellets to be placed within the fatty layers. This is performed in-office and only takes a few minutes to complete. Patients don’t have to remember to take a pill everyday and instead, the pellet will steadily supply the body with hormones.
The results of hormone therapy pellets begin to show within several weeks as the body begins to absorb the pellets. The results of hormone therapy pellets can last for four to five months. After this time, patients can come in for a follow-up appointment to receive more pellets and maintain their hormone balance. As the hormones build up in the patient’s system, they can maintain their muscle mass, bone density, energy, and other benefits.
