Hormone Therapy in Highland Village|BioTE® Hormone Therapy
As we age, our hormone levels naturally begin to decrease, which limits our body’s ability to function at optimal levels. Some women begin to experience the deficiency of testosterone and progesterone in their mid to late 30s while men can experience the loss of testosterone at almost any age.
Just some of the ways hormones can affect your daily life include:
- Weight gain
- Decreased sex drive
Symptoms of hormone imbalance can put a serious wrench in your everyday routine. So, what’s the solution for combating these uneven hormone levels?
At Studio 360 Med Spa & Boutique, our team offers hormone therapy solutions that can increase your energy, enhance your mood, and give you the life you deserve.
What Is BioTE®?
BioTE® is a method of hormone optimization treatment that uses bioidentical pellets. Once a person’s hormone levels are identified, patient-specific pellets are inserted into the body, where they will dissolve, allowing the body to safely absorb the remaining contents.
How Long Does it Take to See Results?
Although every patient’s circumstance is different, most see results within four weeks of pellet insertion. Full optimization can take up to six months. For optimal results, patients should limit physical activity after the pellets have been inserted into the body. While walking is permitted, activities like swimming, running, or riding a bike should be avoided. Strenuous activities should be paused until bandages have been removed and your doctor approves you for all physical activity.
At What Age Will I Need Hormone Therapy?
In most cases, women can expect to see a loss in hormones around their mid-30s. As for men, hormone loss can happen at any age. Because both testosterone and estrogen levels vary, it’s important to get tested and see where you currently stand. This will give you an idea about the overall health of your body right now and in the future.
Can Hormone Therapy Help Prevent Other Health Issues?
Yes, increasing your hormone levels can help prevent a variety of stress or age-related health problems. Patients who opt for hormone therapy typically have more energy, strength, and mental clarity. As a result, they could find relief from the following health issues:
- Poor heart health
- Diminished memory
- Abnormal breast and prostate health
It should be noted that hormone therapy can’t guarantee full prevention of any of these issues. However, being in a more energized state of mind can promote activities that directly affect good health.
How Often Will I Need Pellet Insertion?
This varies by patient. If you’re trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle full of energy, you may need multiple BioTE® treatments a year. Either way, our team will ensure your pellet therapy plan is customized to your needs and desired goals.
