Bioidentical Hormone Therapy

Hormones are essential to good health. As a person ages, hormone deficiencies can lead to high blood pressure, calcium loss, inability to lose weight, and diminished sex drive. Dr. Lingenfelter is a certified SottoPelle Physician and is proud to offer bioidentical hormone replacement pellets, which can treat all of the above issues, through Adorn Aesthetics.

Hormone replacement pellets are implanted in the body to replicate the function of gonads. The body receives low doses of hormones that it needs to maintain healthy organ function and youth. Contact us now to find out if hormone replacement therapy could be right for you.

Bioidentical Hormone Therapy Q & A

How Do Hormone Replacement Pellets Work?

Bioidentical hormone replacement pellets are administered through a quick and easy process that can be done with just a local anesthetic in our office. The pellet is about the size of a grain of rice, and is painlessly inserted under the skin into the fat.

Once in place, they work through time-release to ensure that the right dosage is given. The pellet is slowly absorbed and can last up to six months.

What Are the Signs of a Hormone Imbalance?

Hormones are chemicals that affect functions in the human body. When an imbalance is present, a person may experience feelings of mood swings, depression, difficulty focusing, memory loss, fatigue, irritability, and low sex drive.  If you notice any combination of these symptoms, you should talk to a doctor for an evaluation.

When Will I Feel the Effects of Hormone Replacement Pellets?

A sudden spike in hormones can cause problems. That’s why hormone pellets work gradually. Minimum dosages are usually used to safely find what works best for the patient. Most patients report changes in symptoms within two to three weeks after administering the pellet. The effects usually increase in strength over time.

At Adorn Aesthetics, we can discuss your situation and advise you on the best dosage and schedule for you.

Are Hormone Replacement Pellets a New Treatment Option?

Bioidentical pellet therapy is not a new concept. It was developed during the 1930s in Europe. Renowned Canadian endocrinologist Dr. Robert B. Greenblatt brought it to the United States in 1939. Decades later, doctors still use it as an effective way to restore hormonal imbalances.
