What does bioidentical mean?

The term “bio-identical” means that the biochemical structure of the hormone is perfectly matched to the hormones that are produced in our body. Bio-identical hormones are plant based, natural substances.

These compounded bio-identicals can be matched to your unique needs, something that’s impossible with mass-manufactured products. Our provider at Re3 Healing Aesthetic and Wellness have all undergone advanced training in hormone therapy in order to provide patients with the latest options. We are prepared to help you navigate the ever changing landscape of hormone therapy and assist you in finding the best treatment for you.

What is hormone pellet therapy?

Pellet Therapy uses hormones derived from natural plant sources to replicate the body’s normal hormonal levels. Patients have found that bio-identical hormone replacement therapy with pellet implants is extremely effective. Implants, placed under the skin, consistently release small, physiologic doses of hormones providing optimal therapy.

Unlike typical oral and transdermal forms of therapy – which produce “roller coaster” hormone levels, resulting in mood and energy  fluctuations for the patient – BioTE® Medical Hormone Pellet Therapy, is the only method of hormone therapy that provides sustained
hormone levels throughout the day, for up to four to six months, without any “roller coaster” effect.

Because the hormones used are completely natural, BioTE® Medical Hormone Pellet Therapy is ideal for patients wanting the benefits of a natural hormone, without the drawbacks of a synthetic.

BioTE® pellets contain a natural plant source of estrogen and testosterone. A compounding pharmacist, using strict federal guidelines, compounds the estrogen and testosterone utilized in the pellets. These pellets, which are smaller than a grain of rice, are placed in the fatty tissue underneath the skin and most closely mimic the actions of healthy ovaries and testicles with regards to hormone release into the bloodstream. The hormone pellet implantation procedure is easily performed in the office.
