Your hormones are vital to the health of your body, interacting with your cells and organs on a daily basis to regulate your major bodily systems. But, as we age, our hormone production may change, and the impact that this change can have on our bodies is significant.
While the side effects differ between men and women, a hormone imbalance creates a host of side effects, including:
- Chronic fatigue
- Loss of muscle mass
- Increased body fat
- Decreased bone mass
- Mood changes
- Lower mental capacity
- Brain Fog
Your Hormone Solution
The Facial Center provides a unique solution to correcting changes in hormone levels as we age: BioTe® hormone replacement therapy. Thousands of men and women across the country have used these bioidentical hormone pellets to restore balance to their hormones and live happier healthier lives.
Many patients prefer this method of treatment over other synthetic hormones because every single pellet is customized for the individual patient’s needs. The hormones used are similar to those already found in the body, which can minimize and in some cases completely avoid, the negative side effects that are associated with synthetic hormones. Patients also enjoy a consistent level of hormone balance throughout the day with BioTe’s unique design. Once inserted, the pellets quickly dissolve into the body, creating a stable hormone level without the “rollercoaster” sometimes described with synthetic options.
How does treatment work?
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy with BioTe uses a unique pellet insertion method to effectively balance hormones. Each pellet contains a customized level of testosterone or estrogen and is placed subcutaneously in your body during your visit with our practice. Once inserted, the hormones are released into the bloodstream and are absorbed by the body. Most patients report seeing a change in their symptoms within seven to 10 days of the first pellet insertion. This method mimics the hormone release already present in the body for the greatest chance of success in achieving hormone balance
