WHAT IS HORMONE PELLET THERAPY?

Pellet therapy is a type of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) method that places pellets under the skin, usually in the upper buttock region. The pellets act to release a steady source of hormones and typically dissolve over three (women) to six (men) months. Your body recognizes this as if it was produced from within. Pellet therapy will be personalized based on the hormonal imbalances or deficiencies of the patient. As with other types of BHRT, pellet therapy can provide relief to a variety of symptoms, and a large majority of patients notice significant improvement. These symptoms include but are not limited to difficulty concentrating, hot flashes, insomnia, increased sensitivity to cold or heat, foggy thinking, fatigue in the early evenings, sleepless nights, irritability, and headaches.

HOW MUCH DOES PELLET THERAPY COST?

The cost of pellet therapy varies based on different factors. Dr. Poe will assess your symptoms, create a personalized treatment plan to meet your goals, and provide a custom cost for you during your consultation.

AM I A CANDIDATE FOR PELLET THERAPY?

Like BHRT, men and women alike can utilize pellet therapy. If you are suffering from different symptoms and suspect that hormonal imbalances or deficiencies are the root of your symptoms, then pellet therapy may be a great option for you. If you want to live a healthier life while also counteracting the natural aging process, pellet therapy can help. If you have been told that your hormone levels are low or imbalanced you may also be a candidate.

HOW IS PELLET THERAPY PERFORMED?

Pellet therapy utilizes an individualized approach of BHRT and formulates the unique hormone profile that you need into a small pellet that is placed subcutaneously, under the skin. This is usually done in an area that is not noticeable and will not cause great distress, such as the upper buttock region. This insertion process is not painful and usually completed in a short period of time. The pellet acts to steadily provide your body with the hormones it needs so that you can feel better, typically between three to six months.

WHAT IS RECOVERY LIKE AFTER PELLET THERAPY?

Because the pellet insertion process is minimally invasive, the recovery process after the procedure is nearly nonexistent. You are able to go home the same day, and there is no downtime.

HOW LONG WILL MY PELLET THERAPY RESULTS LAST?

Pellet therapy will provide results over the span of a few months. Once they have fully dissolved, results will fade, and you may require additional maintenance treatments.
