Biote Hormone Pellet Therapy

Hi, I’m Julie Krochonis, AGNP-C and at Thrive Medical Spa located in Milton, GA we are offering a new Wellness program that includes BioTe hormone pellet therapy. First, we will have you come in for quick blood work and a health assessment questionnaire. The blood work includes a comprehensive hormone and nutraceutical panel. After 3-4 business days we have you come in for an individualized treatment plan which can include hormone replacement pellets and supplements. Stay tuned for more videos regarding all things hormones.

What are hormone pellets?

Hormone pellets are implants under the skin that release bioidentical hormones from plants. Hormone pellet therapy is a treatment for replacing or regulating hormones in males and females, either with forms of estrogen or testosterone or with a combination of hormones.

What are bioidentical hormones?

Bioidentical hormones are derived from a natural plant source and professionally compounded to be biologically identical to the human form of estradiol and testosterone. The body is given what it can no longer produce.

What is BioTe?

BioTE is a hormone replacement treatment that uses pellets. These tiny cylindrical-shaped supplements are inserted under the skin and release precise doses of hormones over time, providing a steady stream of hormones for optimal function. BioTE is a type of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), that uses hormones that are molecularly identical to those naturally produced by the body.

What Is the Potential Advantage of Bioidentical Hormones?

Bioidentical hormones, such as the ones used by Biote, work with the body’s chemistry because they closely replicate the molecular structure of the hormones that normally occur within the body.

At Thrive Medical Spa we use BioTe, which are tiny cylindrical-shaped supplements that are inserted under the skin and release precise doses of hormones over time, providing a steady stream of hormones for optimal function.

Pellet Therapy uses hormones derived from natural plant sources to replicate the body’s normal hormonal levels. Patients have found that bioidentical hormone replacement therapy with pellet implants is extremely effective. Implants, placed under the skin, consistently release small, physiologic doses of hormones providing optimal therapy.

Unlike typical oral and transdermal forms of therapy – which produce “roller coaster” hormone levels, resulting in mood and energy fluctuations for the patient – BioTE® Medical Hormone Pellet Therapy, is the only method of hormone therapy that provides sustained hormone levels throughout the day, for up to 4 to 6 months, without any “roller coaster” effect.
Because the hormones used are completely natural, Pellet Therapy is ideal for patients wanting the benefits of a natural hormone, without the drawbacks of a synthetic.
