It’s a simple, one-and-done process, and there’s no need to worry about remembering to take a pill or apply a cream every day. Feel better no matter your age.

BioTE Pellet Therapy Q & A

What is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

Bioidentical hormones are made from plant or animal sources. They are chemically identical to the hormones your body produces, so your body can recognize and process them with minimal risk of side effects. Hormonal treatment may be delivered orally, transdermally or through pellets.

Successful therapy depends on getting the right dose of bioidentical hormones. After comprehensive blood work analysis, Dr. Julie Taylor will customize a treatment plan based on your unique hormonal needs. She will collaborate with you every step of the way to optimize your treatment and your results.

What conditions does bioidentical hormone replacement therapy treat?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is one of the most advanced anti-aging medical treatments that addresses a wide variety of hormonal ailments including:

  • Loss of energy or ambition
  • Hot flashes and night sweats
  • Unplanned weight gain
  • Mood swings
  • Low libido
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Brain fog
  • Anxiety or depression
  • Irritability

Dr. Taylor will work with you to balance your hormones naturally so you can live your optimal life.

What are the advantages of BioTE hormonal therapy?

With BioTE therapy, Dr. Taylor places bioidentical hormone implants, smaller than a grain of rice, in the fatty tissue directly under the skin in a simple office procedure. The pellets release all-natural compounded estrogen or testosterone into the bloodstream, which is then metabolized by the body exactly as needed.

Studies prove that pellets are one of the most effective hormonal delivery methods for both men and women. Unlike creams, patches, pills or shots, BioTE is the only hormone delivery method that guarantees sustained levels 24 hours a day, helping you avoid the dreaded hormonal, emotional roller-coaster effect.

Pellets provide the bioidentical hormones your body recognizes, significantly reducing the risk of any side effects. Typical BioTE treatments may last anywhere from four to six months.
