advantages of hormone pellet therapy
Pellet therapy uses hormone pellets that replicate the body’s normal hormonal levels. Those who have tried it report that the bio-identical hormone replacement therapy with pellet implants is extremely effective. The pellets are placed under the skin and consistently release small, physiologic doses of hormones that provide optimal therapy. It is also the only delivery method of hormone therapy that provides sustained hormone levels throughout the day for up to three to five months without any “roller coaster” effect.
Pellet therapy offers advantages for those who prefer not to endure the pain sometimes associated with testosterone injections or worries of transference linked to creams. Pellet therapy delivers a slow release of hormones over the course of three to six months.
Pellet therapy offers many of the same benefits as other BHRT delivery methods, but it has some distinct features that set it apart, including:
- Convenient, no hassle dosing. The pellet is inserted and goes to work – no need to remember to take a pill or swipe on a cream. And, since the pellet is slowly metabolized by the body over time, patients don’t have to worry if they took too much or not enough
- Minimizes fluctuations between treatments. Pellets are designed to work with each patient’s body chemistry, releasing a natural dose of hormones throughout the treatment cycle.
- The process is quick, like having your blood drawn. Local anesthetic is applied to the injection site, a tiny incision is made in the skin and the pellet is put into place by trained medical staff and sealed with a piece of medical tape. There is no need for stitches or fear of scarring.
