As you grow older, natural physiological changes within the body can lead to hormone imbalances that negatively affect your life. You may suffer from a hormone imbalance because of menopause, childbirth, stress, or other factors.

Since hormones regulate most of your body’s functions, including your emotions, physical wellness, and sexual health, an imbalance can dramatically affect your life. Cutella Medical Spa offers bioidentical HRT in San Antonio for those suffering from the signs and symptoms of a hormone imbalance.

When Do You Need Male BHRT?

Male bioidentical hormone replacement therapy might be necessary if you have noticed the signs and symptoms of hormone imbalances. Hormone imbalance usually occurs as you grow older and your body’s ability to produce testosterone decreases. But you may also suffer from hormone imbalances because of hypogonadism, other medical conditions, or stress, leading to fluctuating hormone levels. Some individuals also suffer from hormone imbalances since childhood, and HRT in San Antonio can help them feel great for the first time.

Biote: The Optimal Method for Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Biote is one of the leading companies specializing in hormone optimization and preventative medicine. We use Biote’s advanced method of subcutaneous hormone implantation to replace your body’s optimal hormone levels.

We prefer Biote HRT in San Antonio because they mimic the natural structure of the hormones produced by the human body. Since the hormones are bioidentical, your body can’t distinguish between the hormones produced by the body and the artificial hormones delivered via pellets. The results are completely natural.

Benefits of Biote Hormone Pellet Therapy

  • Provide a steady release of hormones, mimicking the body’s secretion patterns
  • Avoid the fluctuations common with other delivery methods
  • No need for daily administration or frequent visits for injections
  • Dosages are tailored to each individual’s specific hormone needs
  • Lasts three to six months, providing prolonged relief from hormone imbalance
  • Minimized risk of adverse reactions often associated with synthetic hormones
  • Alleviate symptoms like mood swings, fatigue, decreased libido, and cognitive issues

How Biote Hormone Pellet Therapy Works

Biote in San Antonio hormone pellet therapy utilizes bioidentical hormones derived from plant sources that are structurally identical to the hormones naturally produced by the human body. These hormones are typically synthesized from yams or soy, providing a molecular structure indistinguishable from endogenous hormones. The process begins with a thorough evaluation of the patient’s hormone levels through blood tests. Next, the bioidentical hormone pellets, customized to the patient’s needs, are subcutaneously implanted under the skin.

The pellets gradually release hormones into the bloodstream, providing a continuous and steady delivery of hormones over several months. This sustained release mimics the physiological pattern of hormone secretion observed in the body, avoiding the fluctuations associated with other administration routes like injections or oral medications. By closely replicating the body’s natural hormone production, Biote hormone pellet therapy offers optimized hormone levels, effectively alleviating symptoms of hormone imbalance while minimizing the risk of side effects associated with conventional HRT in San Antonio.

Your Hormone Replacement Therapy in San Antonio

Cutella Medical Spa offers the Biote method of hormone replacement, which involves placing BHRT pellets underneath the skin. Your medical provider will discuss your goals and symptoms, ask why you’re considering hormone replacement, run tests to understand which hormones you lack and curate a personalized hormone replacement therapy plan for you. Everyone is unique, so we always curate personalized treatment plans to ensure optimal results.

During your hormone replacement therapy session, the medical provider will make a small incision to insert the bioidentical hormone pellets underneath your skin. The volume and dosage of the hormones will be selected according to your specific needs and goals. The hormone pellet will release a steady stream of the desired hormones into your body to supplement your natural hormones, thus alleviating the symptoms of menopause.
