Questions about BioTE Therapy

Questions about BioTE Louisville

Hormones are essential for healthy living. Low or imbalanced levels of hormones can interrupt some of the body’s vital internal functions and lead to an array of health problems. Unfortunately, this is what occurs as one ages, especially during perimenopause (pre-menopause), menopause and andropause (“male menopause”). Patients interested in BioTE® hormone replacement therapy in Louisville are encouraged to visit Dr. Sean Maguire’s office for a consultation.

With the help of natural hormone replacement therapy, adults suffering from the effects of hormone imbalance can restore the youthful vitality they once had. Physician’s Center for Beauty, a cosmetic surgery practice, is pleased to offer natural hormone replacement therapy with BioTE® pellets. Here, our team answers commonly asked questions about the therapy.

How does BioTE® therapy work?

BioTE® therapy uses pellets that are implanted under the skin to release hormones into the body. The hormones are identical to the ones naturally produced by the body (bio-identical), so the body recognizes them as its own. The hormones are released in small, consistent doses every day and work to rebalance hormone levels. With BioTE® therapy in Louisville, patients can find relief of their symptoms, and as a result, improved well-being and health.

What is the difference between bio-identical hormones and synthetic hormones?

Bio-identical hormones are designed to closely mimic the molecular structure of natural hormones, so they are better tolerated by the body than synthetic hormones. In addition, research shows that bio-identical hormones last longer and produce fewer side effects than synthetic hormones.

How do I know if I am a candidate for BioTE® therapy?

If you experience symptoms due to menopause, perimenopause or andropause such as muscle and joint pain, reduced libido, fatigue, low energy, mood swings, weight gain, hot flashes or migraines, you may benefit from BioTE® therapy. To determine if you are a good candidate, our hormone specialist will meet with you personally and evaluate your symptoms. If she determines BioTE® therapy is right for you, she will conduct a few tests and draw your blood to determine the right dosage to create your unique BioTE® pellets.

How long do the pellets last?

Pellets last between three to five months and are then naturally dissolved by the body. Patients have pellets reinserted every three to five months to keep hormones balanced.
