Low-Cost BHRT Pellet Therapy Clinic
What is Pellet Therapy exactly?
Hormone pellet therapy is a safe and effective delivery method for administering bioidentical hormones within a BHRT program. Bioidentical Hormone Pellet Therapy is one of the most preferred BHRT techniques, because these long-lasting hormone pellets deliver a constant, steady amount of hormones throughout the day/night in the same way that hormones are naturally produced in healthy patients of younger ages.
What’s All of the “Buzz” About? What are the Advantages of BHRT Pellet Therapy?
Most BHRT patients find that pellet therapy is the easiest and most convenient form of hormone replacement treatments available. Instead of dealing with the inconvenience and reminders of either a daily or weekly schedule of administering injections, taking pills, or applying creams, BHRT pellets are inserted in the body and can last up to 6 month and provide a constantly-maintained dosage of hormones.
The pellets, which can contain testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, DHEA, and anastrazole (an estrogen inhibitor for men) deliver a steady and measured dose of the hormones your body needs, only as it needs them , creating a peak hormone balance and avoiding the extreme fluctuations and roller-coaster-like effect on your body that other HRT methods can cause.
Does the BHRT Hormone Pellet Insertion Procedure Hurt?
Bio-identical Pellet Insertion is quick and painless. During the minimally-invasive pellet insertion procedure, a hormone pellet, which is about the size of a grain of rice, is implanted under fatty tissues in the body, typically near the buttocks area. Your Hormone Doctor will numb the area prior to implantation with an anesthetic injection and patients most often leave the office with nothing more than a small bandaid.
With decades of experience under our belts, you can rest assured that your physicians, Dr. Fietsam and Dr. Carlson, and the rest of the pellet therapy specialists at Envizion Medical, have your best interest in mind, and will manage your hormone replacement therapy program in conjunction with your overall healthcare and medical needs.
What Else Should I Know Before I Schedule a BHRT Pellet Consult?
Like each other Bioidentical Hormone Therapy option, a patient will need repeated treatment in order to realize the full and lasting benefit of Pellet therapy. Most pellets last 3-6 months.
A patient will need to undergo a few months of BHRT therapy with creams, injections, or oral medication in order to determine the appropriate dosing before electing to begin Pellet therapy. This is essential, as once the pellets are implanted, they are not able to be removed.
Patients with specific vegetable-based allergies may not be candidates for Pellet therapy. A local anesthetic will also be used during the procedure.
