Q&A: BioTE

Usually for women, hormone depletion will begin around menopause. However, women can start hormone depletion in their late 30s or early 40s.

Some of the symptoms you may experience are:

  • Insomnia
  • Mood swings
  • Hot flashes
  • Vaginal dryness or burning sensation
  • Weight gain
  • Drop in libido
  • Painful intercourse
  • Thinning Hair

Of course, being that women aren’t the only ones to experience symptoms when going through hormone depletion.

Some the symptoms that men may experience are:

  • Poor stamina
  • Lower libido
  • Mood swings
  • Weight gain
  • Hair loss

Men usually go through a period of years where testosterone levels decrease over time throughout their middle age and senior years. This is called andropause. This is a much slower process than menopause in women. Around 45 years old, testosterone levels begin to decrease and eventually symptoms will show.

Regardless of the symptoms, hormone depletion can be very frustrating and annoying for many men and women. Luckily, bioidentical hormone replacement can be your answer.

What is BioTE?

BioTE is a bioidentical hormone replacement system that is implemented into the body via pellet insertion. Your medical spa care provider will numb you and then the pellet will be inserted into an area such as the upper buttock area. This procedure is a quick, easy outpatient procedure that will consistently release the necessary hormones over the upcoming months.

BioTE pellets are specially customized capsules that are created based on your specific hormone tests, in order to provide you with optimal hormone balance. These special “bioidentical” hormones are identified as such because they are identical in molecular structure to your body’s natural hormones. It should also be stated that BioTE pellets themselves come from plant sources and not animal sources, such as non-bioidnetical synthetic hormones.

When will the results come from BioTE?

As soon as 7-10 days post-insertion, you can expect to find symptom relief. Balancing hormones can be a bit of a waiting game, however, once you achieve optimal balance for your body you can anticipate dramatic symptom relief. Many of our patients have expressed that they finally feel like their old selves again!

How often do I need BioTE treatment?

The exact number of treatments will vary depending on the individual, however, BioTE pellets usually last for three to six months. There are other variables that play into this timeline as well such as the number of hormones already in your body currently, your weight, your sex, and also your metabolism.
Your care provider at our medical spa will recommend a treatment schedule for you, but typically two to four times a year will keep your hormones balanced and keep you feeling awesome!
