Biote Hormone Optimization

Reclaim your vitality through personalized hormone therapy solutions at Thrive Medical Spa. With Biote Hormone Optimization, we harness the power of hormone replacement therapy for men and women to address hormone imbalances and improve your overall quality of life.

What is Biote Hormone Optimization?

Biote Optimization is a cutting-edge approach to restoring hormonal balance. Hormones serve as the body’s chemical messengers, orchestrating physiological processes essential for health and vitality. However, various factors such as stress, toxins, lifestyle habits, and aging disrupt hormone equilibrium and lead to symptoms like fatigue, weight gain, decreased libido, mood swings, hot flashes, and cognitive decline. Unlike traditional synthetic hormones, which may carry risks and side effects, Biote uses bioidentical hormones from natural plant sources. These hormones allow for seamless integration and physiological response.

Biote Hormone Optimization begins with hormone testing, including an extensive blood panel and review of symptoms, to identify specific deficiencies. Then, your concerns are addressed with a custom treatment pellet strategically implanted under your skin, releasing hormones into the bloodstream over time.

Biote traces its inception back to Dr. Gary Donovitz, who recognized the limitations of traditional synthetic hormone therapies. He founded Biote Medical in 2012 and introduced pellet therapy for optimal results. Since then, Biote has gained popularity among healthcare providers and patients alike, revolutionizing hormone therapy.

The Biote Hormone Optimization Procedure

Before the procedure, you should disclose any medications, supplements, or health conditions to ensure the safety and effectiveness of the treatment. Additionally, you must undergo lab tests to accurately assess your hormone levels and overall health. This thorough assessment allows our practitioners to customize a treatment plan.

Should pellets be recommended after the evaluation, you will come back to Thrive Medical Spa, where small pellets containing the bioidentical hormones are inserted beneath your skin, typically in the hip area. This is a quick and minimally invasive procedure. These pellets slowly release hormones into the bloodstream over several months, providing consistent and optimized hormone levels. Follow-up appointments will monitor levels and adjust the treatment plan as needed.

Your Recovery and Results

Most patients continue with their normal activities shortly after the Biote procedure. You may experience mild discomfort or bruising at the insertion site, but this subsides within a few days. We advise avoiding strenuous activities and excessive sweating for a brief period to allow the incision site to heal. However, most individuals can return to work and other routines without significant interruption.

At Thrive Medical Spa, we encourage a holistic approach to wellness. We recognize how hormones are connected with other aspects of health, including nutrition, exercise, sleep, and stress management. Many of these factors influence hormone balance, and we suggest appropriate lifestyle changes to address the symptoms and optimize the treatment.

After the Biote Hormone Optimization treatment, patients report increased energy levels, improved mood, and enhanced overall well-being. Symptoms of imbalance may diminish or disappear altogether. Beyond these, patients may notice improved cognition, libido, and quality of sleep. The gradual release of Biote pellets ensures optimized hormone levels and leads to sustained benefits over time.

Safety is Our Priority

Biote pellet hormone therapy is considered safe. At Thrive Medical Spa, we prioritize your safety, well-being and comfort above all else. With a steadfast commitment to offering safe, effective services and treatments, we aim to foster an environment where you can THRIVE, supported by our unwavering dedication to your wellness and peace of mind.
