Genetics, illnesses, pregnancy, and the aging process can all contribute to hormone deficiencies. When your hormones aren’t balanced, you will experience symptoms, some minor, some more severe. At Lively Wellness and Aesthetics in Odessa, TX, we offer bioidentical hormone replacement therapy so that you can find freedom from your symptoms and live a vibrant and balanced life.
How Soon Do You Get Results From Hormone Replacement?
Once you begin hormone therapy, you can expect to experience positive results within two to three days of beginning treatment. At our office, we use pellet therapy to balance the hormones of both men and women. As soon as a hormone pellet is injected into your body, it will be absorbed by the bloodstream and will immediately begin delivering the hormones your body needs to achieve a state of balance.
What Is Pellet Therapy?
Pellet therapy is an effective form of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy that stabilizes the body’s hormone levels for three to four months at a time. These pellets are smaller than a grain of rice, yet they contain a customized dosage of bioidentical hormones to help restore your body’s hormone levels and help you achieve balance.
These pellets can help both men and women alike achieve balanced hormones. They can be customized with bioidentical versions of estradiol and testosterone to help balance the system.
What Can It Treat?
Menopause and andropause are the most common life stages during which patients begin to experience a hormone deficiency. However, that’s not always the case. Different factors can lead to hormone imbalances, including illnesses, genetics, and pregnancies. If you are suffering from imbalanced hormones, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can help alleviate your symptoms and restore balance in your life.
This treatment can help improve and eliminate the symptoms that can affect your physical, emotional, and mental health. Some of the most common symptoms of hormone imbalances that affect men and women that this treatment can alleviate include:
- Chronic fatigue
- Weight gain
- Mood swings
- Low energy
- Poor bone density
- Urinary incontinence
- Night sweats
- Hot flashes
- Low libido
- Joint pain
- Painful intercourse
- Sexual dysfunction
- Menstrual irregularities
- Vaginal dryness
Investing in Your Current and Future Health
Hormone replacement therapy will help balance your hormones to alleviate and eliminate your current symptoms, but it can also help promote your future health and wellness. Living life with a hormonal imbalance can increase your risk of certain age-related diseases. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy may help reduce your risk of specific age-related diseases, including heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, and Alzheimer’s.
What Are the Advantages of Pellet Therapy?
There are many different forms of hormone replacement therapy, but at Lively Wellness and Aesthetics, we offer pellet therapy because of its many benefits. When you choose this treatment method, all you have to do is show up in our office, and we will take care of the rest.
You won’t have to administer injections, apply creams, or monitor your hormone levels on a daily or weekly basis. This process is effective and mindless and delivers some quick and stable hormone balancing effects.
Who Is a Candidate?
Both men and women alike make good candidates for this treatment. Patients may begin to experience these symptoms in their 30s, 40s, or 50s, but age is not the sole determining factor. Thanks to this effective treatment, you can live a life defined by balance, and achieving that balance is easy. An initial consultation at our office will help us confirm your hormone deficiency so that we can determine the right dosage to meet your needs.
We will review your medical history, discuss your symptoms and concerns, and create your treatment plan. To confirm your deficiency and determine your dosage, we will perform a comprehensive blood test to evaluate your body’s hormone levels. This blood test will show us exactly where your levels are and which hormones require adjustment.
What Happens During the Treatment Process?
Once we obtain your hormone levels and determine your dosage, Dr. Lively will order your prescription from a compounding pharmacy. These hormone pellets contain all the hormones necessary to help balance your body. They are smaller than a grain of rice but will restore balance to your hormonal system quickly and effectively. During the treatment process, the pellet will be inserted into the fatty tissue below the skin’s surface.
This process takes place in the comfort of our office and only takes a few minutes to complete. You can return to your normal daily activities as soon as your treatment is over. Within just a few days, you’ll begin experiencing relief from your symptoms and the benefits that come when your hormones are finally balanced.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Most patients require follow-up treatments every three to four months based on how quickly their bodies use the prescribed hormones. Patients can schedule as few as three to four quick and virtually painless treatments each year to help maintain balanced hormones and live symptom-free.
