Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Pellets Kingwood Texas

Hormone pellets at DermaPlus is the most effective way of administering bio-identical hormones. DermaPlus is one of only a few places in Kingwood, Texas, offering this treatment. Hormone pellet therapy is the most effective way of delivering Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) for several reasons.

    Pellet Hormone Replacement Therapy

    Pellet implants contain hormones that are biologically identical to ours. Hormone pellets contain either estradiol or testosterone and are similar in size to a rice grain. 

    Pellet insertion is a relatively simple procedure, done under local anesthesia. During treatment the pellets are inserted in the fatty area under the skin through a minimal incision in the upper buttock or love handles. After that, sterile-tape strips close the incision. Patients typically cannot feel the implants below their skin. We recommend refraining from exercise for a few days to allow the incision to heal.

    Is pellet therapy the right choice for me?

    Hormone Pellets is the preferred way to administer bio identical hormone replacement therapy at DermaPlus Aesthetics. 

    Depression, brain fog, insomnia, muscle loss, and low energy are some of the symptoms pellet therapies can relieve. Aging conditions like menopause and perimenopause can cause hot flashes, mood swings, and weight gain in women. Post-menopausal women experience a wide range of symptoms, including hair loss, low libido, and irregular menstrual cycles

    The effects of aging on men, known as andropause, are caused by fluctuations in testosterone levels. As a result, they can cause many of the same symptoms. Therefore, testosterone pellets can help retain muscle mass, cognitive and energy levels and restore sex drive.

    How long pellets they last and getting new ones

    Hormone pellets tend to last between 3 and 5 months for women and 5-6 months for men. Factors that may increase the pellet absorb rate include high-stress levels, physical activity, medications, and lack of sleep. As a result, these factors would lead to the insertion of new pellets sooner.

    The pellets naturally dissolve as they absorb into the body. When reinserting your next pellets, we typically insert them on the opposite side of the body, therefore alternating the incision site each time.

    Moving forward with BHRT and pellets

    Lab testing can help determine if you are a candidate by highlighting if a hormonal imbalance causes your symptoms. If you are a candidate for bio-identical pellet hormone replacement therapy, Dr. Lugo and Kelly Baker-Goff will use the lab results, current symptoms, and medical history to determine and develop your individualized treatment plan.
