About

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is an effective treatment using hormones that are identical to the hormones naturally made by your body. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is transforming lives every day. It provides an alternative to hormones that are synthetic, such as injectable testosterone, or hormones concentrated from horse urine (Premarin). 

What are BHRT Pellets?


Prime Med Spa and HTCA Pellet Therapy uses bioidentical hormone pellets. These Pellets are small, and cylinder shaped, made by compounding pharmacists in customized dosages based on the individual needs of the patient as opposed to the narrow choices available with mass-produced, or “one size fits all” hormone therapies. Pellet Therapy delivers a constant level of hormones throughout the day preventing rollercoaster-like effects from alternative hormones. The pellets contain Bioidentical hormones, which are derived from natural sources. The pellets contain hormones the exact hormones that are found naturally in the human body. Studies have shown that Bioidentical hormones have fewer side effects than synthetic hormones.

Procedure

The implantation of hormone pellets is a simple and relatively painless procedure performed under local anesthesia to numb the skin. The BHRT pellets are inserted in the upper buttocks by your doctor, through a very small incision. No stitches needed, walk out the door ready to experience the benefits of BHRT!

Candidates

From start to finish, the entire process of receiving BHRT at Prime Med Spa is completely customized to the individual. At your initial visit, you will receive testing that will help us determine your individual body’s exact needs, correct dosages, and more!
