Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Questions and Answers

Hormones control many vital aspects of our bodies, including communication between body systems and coordinating digestion, growth, appetite, mood, libido, and immunity. So, a hormonal imbalance can severely impact your overall health and wellness and lead to damaging effects on your life. At Prestige Med Spa in Charlotte, NC, we strive to help you achieve balanced health through Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT). Although our expert medical staff will discuss your personal goals and go over the best treatment options for you, we answer some commonly asked questions about BHRT below if you have ever considered receiving this innovative, scientifically based treatment.

What is BHRT?

BHRT is used for both men and women when their hormones become unbalanced or levels drop. Bioidentical hormones are derived from natural sources such as Yams or Soy.

Who needs BHRT?

Both men and women of all ages can benefit from BHRT. When your hormone levels start to fall or become imbalanced, you may not feel quite like yourself, or you may be experiencing symptoms that are impacting your life. If you are experiencing symptoms like foggy thinking, muscle loss, insomnia, or low energy, or symptoms of menopause such as hot flashes, mood swings, or weight gain, or symptoms of andropause, which is experienced by men caused by fluctuating levels of testosterone, you may benefit from BHRT.

Our physician Dr. Awa at Prestige Med Spa is a certified Biote provider and provides personalized treatment options for patients considering BHRT. If you want to know if BHRT is the right option for you, book a complimentary consultation with Dr. Awa at Prestige Med Spa.

What is pellet therapy?

Pellet therapy is a delivery method for BHRT. During pellet therapy, a small pellet made of bioidentical hormones is inserted under the patient’s skin every 3 to 6 months. The pellets contain specially tailored levels of estradiol and testosterone that is slowly metabolized into the body over time, releasing the hormones into the body’s systems, much like naturally produced hormones would be. Pellet therapy presents the advantage of allowing your body to use the correct amount of hormone for it while always maintaining steady levels in your blood. Dr. Awa uses pellet therapy to replace testosterone and estradiol hormones because they are steady and do not cause any daily fluctuations.
