Are you feeling less energetic than you used to? Or have you noticed an unexpected shift in your mood or weight? These are just a few symptoms that might hint at a hormonal imbalance. One solution you might not have considered yet is BioTE pellets.

BioTE pellets offer a unique approach to hormone therapy, targeting the root causes of these symptoms. By addressing hormonal imbalances directly, this therapy can bring about significant improvements in your overall health and well-being.

At the Anti-Aging Clinic of Northwest Florida, we specialize in providing innovative treatments like hormone therapy to help our patients look and feel their best, and we have placed thousands of pellets over the years.


What Are BioTE Pellets?

BioTE pellets are tiny, custom-created cylinders that contain bioidentical hormones. These pellets are used for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). This type of hormone therapy leverages plant-based hormones, similar to those naturally found in your body, to restore balance and resolve hormone-related symptoms. Unlike synthetic hormones, these plant-based ones reduce the risk of unpleasant side effects.

How Does BHRT With BioTE Work?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy involves the insertion of tiny BioTE pellets under the skin, usually in the hip or buttock area. These pellets release hormones slowly, mimicking the body's natural hormone release process.

What Does BioTE Pellet Therapy Treat?

BioTE pellets can address a range of symptoms resulting from hormonal imbalances, including:

  • Fatigue and low energy
  • Weight gain or difficulty losing weight
  • Mood swings or irritability
  • Reduced sexual desire or performance
  • Difficulty with memory or focus
  • Sleep problems

It's worth noting that these symptoms can result from various causes. A consultation at the Anti-Aging Clinic of Northwest Florida can determine if a hormonal imbalance is behind your symptoms.

Who Are Good Candidates for BioTE Pellets?

Men and women of all ages can benefit from BioTE hormone therapy, especially if they're experiencing the symptoms listed above. Ideal candidates have tried other methods to alleviate their symptoms without success.

Preparing for BioTE Pellets

Before having your BioTE pellet inserted, you'll need to undergo a comprehensive medical assessment. This will involve a detailed discussion of your symptoms, a review of your medical history, and various laboratory tests to evaluate your hormonal levels. Based on these results, we will customize your therapy.

How Are BioTE Pellets Placed?

BioTE pellet placement is relatively quick and straightforward. After local anesthesia is administered, the pellets are inserted into the fatty layer just beneath the skin through a small incision (about 5 mm long for women and 10 mm for men). The whole process is usually done within a matter of minutes.

How Many Pellets Are Placed at a Time?

The number of BioTE pellets inserted during each procedure can vary based on your specific hormonal needs. Anywhere from one to three pellets are typically inserted in women, while men may require a higher number, often between two and six. These numbers can differ from patient to patient based on individual needs and the extent of hormonal imbalance.

Recovery Timeline: What to Expect After BioTE Pellet Placement

After your pellets are placed, you may experience some minor discomfort at the insertion site. Soreness and bruising are common but generally subside within a few days. Patients are typically advised to avoid strenuous physical activities, such as heavy lifting or high-intensity exercise, for about two to four days following pellet insertion. This helps to minimize movement of the pellet and promotes healing. Showering can usually be resumed the next day, but it's important to keep the insertion site dry and clean to prevent infection. It's also normal to experience temporary changes in sleep patterns or mood as your body adjusts to the new hormone levels.

Remember that these are general guidelines, and timelines may vary slightly since everyone heals differently. Always follow the specific post-procedure instructions provided by your team at the Anti-Aging Clinic of Northwest Florida.

What Results Can I Expect From BioTE Pellets?

The results from pellet therapy are not instant, but you'll start noticing an improvement in your symptoms within two to four weeks. By the third month, most patients reach their peak hormone levels.

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a gradual process, much like your body's natural hormone release. This gradual adjustment results in more balanced hormone levels.

How Much Does Hormone Replacement Therapy Cost?

The cost of hormone replacement with BioTE pellets can vary depending on several factors, including the number of pellets required and your specific hormonal needs. After your consultation and medical evaluation, we can provide a detailed cost breakdown.
