PELLET THERAPY

Pellet therapy at Defiage Med Spa

Low levels of hormones can cause a wide variety of health complications from hot flashes, low sex drive, fatigue, and even loss of bone density. With age, both men and women experience a sharp decline in the body’s natural production of hormones, causing ailments that are commonly associated with age.

Hormone pellet therapy is the preferred method of delivering bioidentical hormones because of its ability to deliver the correct dose of hormones at all times of the day, for months. This allows you to feel the benefits of your newly balanced hormone levels, uninterrupted, and eliminates the need for frequent treatments compared to injections, creams, and oral medication.

At Defiage, we offer bioidentical hormone replacement therapy exclusively through pellet therapy, allowing you to defy the limitations of age and live a fulfilling life full of energy and spark.

Pellet therapy treatment

Pellet therapy insertion is a relatively simple process that takes about 15-minutes from start to finish, done under local anesthesia to ensure comfort. A small incision is made in the upper buttock or in the love handles, where the pellets are inserted into the fatty area underneath the skin. These are the size of a grain of rice and typically cannot be felt under the skin. Sterile tape strips are used to close the incision, and it’s advised to refrain from exercise and strenuous activity for a few days to allow for proper healing of the incision.

What are the benefits of hormone pellet therapy?

The most important benefit of hormone pellet therapy is that they contain bioidentical hormones, which means that they have the same molecular structure as those naturally produced by our bodies. The human body has an intricate system of glands that produce specific hormones that regulate many aspects of our physiology. As we get older, these glands begin to slow down their production of hormones, resulting in hormonal imbalances that lead to aging symptoms such as weight gain, and bone loss.

Pellets provide a steady stream of hormones throughout the day, so you don’t have to worry about missing doses, and you can enjoy the benefits of hormone replacement without having to take daily pills.

How long do results last?

Once you’ve received your first hormone pellet insertion, you’ll notice results within a few weeks. After this initial period, you should notice continued improvement in your appearance and overall well-being. You may continue to receive hormone pellets every 3-5 months to maintain optimal hormone levels.

Some factors that may influence faster pellet absorption rate include high-stress levels, physical activity, medication, and lack of sleep.

Am I a good candidate?

If you’re looking for an effective way to alleviate the symptoms of hormonal imbalance and feel younger than ever, then bioidentical hormone replacement therapy with pellets is what you need! Pellet therapy is a convenient option for anyone who wants to avoid needles and other uncomfortable side effects associated with traditional hormone therapies.

Bioidentical hormones are most commonly used to treat the symptoms of menopause such as hot flashes, weight gain, and vaginal dryness, however, men can equally benefit from this treatment as well.

Are there any side effects?

Hormone pellet therapy is safe and effective, but like all medical procedures, there are risks involved. Some of the more common side effects include minor pain and swelling at site of insertion directly after treatment.

After your initial pellet hormone replacement therapy treatment, there may be an adjustment period that causes a variety of side effects, however, this will subside overtime. These side effects may include bloating, acne, weight gain, fatigue, and increased facial hair in women. Additional side effects can be breast tenderness and headaches, however, these are not a common occurrence.

Are hormone pellets safe?

Yes, hormone pellets are made from naturally-derived plant compounds and are safe. Testing is used to determine the correct doses of hormones needed for optimal improvement. During your initial consultation, your health history will also be reviewed to avoid any potential side effects.
