AN INSIDE LOOK AT PELLET HORMONE THERAPY
As a form of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), hormone pellet therapy mimics the chemical makeup of the hormones naturally produced in your body to deliver results that keep your hormone levels in a therapeutic range for an extended length of time.
Compared with traditional methods, patients find pellet therapy an effective, convenient modality for transferring bioidentical hormones to the body without the need for messy creams, pills, or transdermal patches. The procedure uses a tiny implant to release hormones gradually into the body over a period of 3-5 months. This is the most important difference from the roller coaster effect you may experience with other hormone medications.
Unlike hormone creams or oral dosing options, this method of hormone delivery keeps your hormone levels consistent throughout the day and helps to ensure there are no fluctuations in your mood or energy levels. Pellet hormone therapy is ideal for patients seeking a natural hormone solution with the convenience of dosing only every few months.
Our Kansas City pellet therapy is a game-changing approach to restoring internal balance,improving your well-being, and living the life you deserve.
HOW ARE HORMONE
Derived from natural plant-based sources of testosterone and estradiol, our pellets are made under strict federal guidelines using a high-quality compounding pharmacy. These pellets are designed to be about the size of a cooked grain of rice.
HOW DOES THE PROCEDURE WORK?
This is simple out-patient procedure that is preformed in our clinic. When you arrive for your appointment, we’ll check you in and measure your vital signs before taking you to one of our comfortable treatment rooms. While you’re waiting to be taken back, you can relax and grab a complimentary refreshment(s).
Once you’re in the treatment room, and just prior to the pellet insertion, the practitioner will numb the area (upper glute or flank area) using a local anesthetic. After the numbing takes effect, which is very quickly, your practitioner will make a 0.5 cm incision and carefully insert the prescribed number of pellets into the fatty tissue just below the surface of the skin.
The process takes approximately 10 minutes to complete and requires minimal downtime. Patients typically need an average of three pellet procedures each year in order to sustain optimal hormone levels and enjoy the perks of feeling healthy, young, and energetic again.
Once implanted, the pellets will naturally imitate the way healthy testicles and ovaries release hormones into the bloodstream. Hormones are released based on your own, individual cardiac output; meaning how physically active you are or the level of emotional stress you’re under will have a direct impact on timing and levels of hormones released into the body. Those who are regularly active will release and absorb more hormones from the pellets than those living a more inactive lifestyle.
What to Expect
We’ll get on a call with you to make sure you have all of your basic questions answered. We can take as much time with you as needed. After the call, you’ll understand our process and be excited for the day of your appointment to come!
We’ll share a lab order with you through your patient portal. You’ll use that to get your blood drawn either at our clinic or at a draw site most convenient for you. We will help you find the best location. The blood will be drawn at least 1 week prior to your appointment.
During your consultation, we’ll review your lab results, symptoms, and appropriate medical history to develop an individualized treatment plan for you. We don’t have a cookie-cutter program. We identify what would work best for your specific needs.
Here is what you’ve been waiting for. The procedure takes approximately 10 minutes and is relatively pain-free. The only thing you should feel is the lidocaine injection to numb the area of insertion. You can have the procedure done the same day as your consultation.
Experience Vitality: Pellet Hormone Therapy For Men
After the age of 30, male testosterone levels are shown to decrease an estimated rate of 3% to 10% per year. Those experiencing testosterone deficiency will face symptoms like loss of libido, fatigue, difficulty sustaining or achieving an erection, and lack of mental acuity. Through pellet hormone therapy, men can start producing and maintaining the level of testosterone normally released by healthy functioning testicles.
Unlike other hormone treatment options that may require a daily to weekly dosing regimen, pellet therapy provides a convenient solution for men and has the following benefits:
- Improved sperm production, prostatic functioning, and erections.
- Improved libido
- Increased bone mineral density
- Improved memory, mood, and energy levels
- Reduction in fat tissue
- Increased muscle mass and strength
Hormonal changes, such as weight gain, a lack of sexual desire, muscle mass loss, irritability, and feeling depressed or sluggish, is not something you must endure as a part of aging.
