BioTe Q & A

by David Davila, DO, FACOS

What is BioTE hormone therapy?

Balanced hormones play a key role in maintaining good health as you age. BioTE offers a revolutionary method of hormone delivery that uses small pellets about the size of a grain of rice. These pellets are injected into the fatty tissue below your skin and steadily release bioidentical hormones into your body.

Bioidentical hormones mimic the structure of your body’s natural hormones, such as estrogen and testosterone. Your body absorbs these hormones consistently, which may produce the following results:

  • Increased energy, muscle strength, and ability to lose weight
  • Enhanced mental clarity
  • Prevention of age-related illnesses and complications
  • Improved quality of life

Why would I get BioTE hormone therapy?

BioTE hormone therapy treats hormone imbalances in men and women whose natural hormone levels may have declined with age. Common symptoms of hormone imbalance include:

  • Reduced mental focus and memory
  • Weight gain and increased abdominal fat
  • Reduced libido
  • Mood swings, anxiety, or depression
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Lack of energy
  • Decreased muscle strength
  • Muscle or joint pain

What are hormone pellets?

Houston Cosmetic Surgery Center offers both estradiol pellets for women and testosterone pellets for men. Each dose of these pellets is customized to your unique needs to ensure the proper dose of hormones over time. BioTE hormone pellets use bioidentical hormones, which your body treats just like naturally occurring hormones.

Hormone pellet therapy offers the advantage of releasing a consistent amount of hormones throughout the day, while other hormone replacement therapies can create a roller coaster effect in your body.

What should I expect from BioTE hormone pellet therapy?

First, you with a member of the staff to discuss your concerns and goals during an initial consultation. If you decide to pursue BioTE therapy, you undergo a comprehensive blood analysis to determine the proper dosing for your hormone pellets. A pharmacist, using strict federal guidelines, manufactures your pellets in a lab.

When the pellets are ready, you return to Houston Cosmetic Surgery Center to have them injected below your skin around the hip area. The pellets last three to six months, depending on your gender, weight, and rate of absorption.
