In Houston, hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for women and men is available at Ovation Med Spa® from highly trained providers who have the expertise to create treatment plans designed to benefit clients based on their specific needs. Hormones are important because they serve as powerful chemical messengers sent to specific cells throughout your body to orchestrate many of your body’s internal functions and regulate how your organs behave. Small fluctuations in levels can cause big changes in cells or even disrupt the balance throughout your entire body.
Hormones and Health
Too much or too little of a hormone can have serious consequences. Any endocrinologist will tell you that hormonal balance equates to health. Research continues to indicate that hormones are key to the intricate interrelationships of the body’s parts and systems. They play a pivotal role in your overall health. You can see why hormone fluctuation and depletion during perimenopause, menopause, and andropause (in men) wreak havoc in the body. Research shows the relationship between the hormonal imbalance of menopause and andropause and an increased risk for developing cancer, osteoporosis, stroke, thyroid malfunction, and other age-related disorders.
It’s actually considered normal for men and women to experience a decline in health at this stage of the aging process. You’re also more likely to experience depression, anxiety, memory loss, hot flashes, sleep disturbances, libido issues, and sexual dysfunction, to name just a few.* Hormone pellet therapy can help.

Pellet therapy uses hormones derived from natural plant sources to replicate the body’s normal hormonal levels. Pellets placed under the skin release small doses of hormones providing optimal therapy, unlike typical oral and transdermal forms of therapy—which produce “roller coaster” hormone levels and result in fluctuating mood and energy. Medical Hormone Pellet Therapy is the only method of hormone therapy that provides sustained hormone levels throughout the day, for up to 4 to 6 months, without any “roller coaster” effect.
What Is a Hormone Pellet?
Hormone pellets contain a natural plant source of estrogen and testosterone. A compounding pharmacist, using strict federal guidelines, compounds the estrogen and testosterone utilized in the pellets. These pellets, which are smaller than a grain of rice, are placed in the fatty tissue underneath the skin and most closely mimic the actions of healthy ovaries and testicles with regard to hormone release into the bloodstream. The implantation procedure is easily performed in the office.
Is Hormone Replacement Therapy Supported by Evidence?
Researched and developed since 1939 in the U.S. and Europe, there are myriad data to support the long-term safety and effectiveness of hormones delivered by pellet implants. Bio-identical hormone pellet therapy is being used safely in 5 continents and has been studied for 80 years, not only looking at safety and efficacy but the prevention of disease states such as breast cancer, heart disease, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s, dementia, Type 2 diabetes and much more.* There are hundreds of studies available to practitioners with regard to hormone pellet therapy.
What Are the Benefits of Hormone Pellets for Women?
In studies, when compared to conventional HRT for women, pellets have been shown to be extremely effective for:*
Relief of menopausal symptoms
Maintenance of bone density
Restoration of sleep patterns
Improvement in sex drive, libido, sexual response, and performance
Relief of depression, anxiety, irritability, mood swings, and more
Treatment of migraine and menstrual headaches
Vaginal dryness, incontinence, urinary urgency, and frequency
Moreover, hundreds of studies show natural testosterone to be HIGHLY preventative against breast cancer, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s dementia, to name a few.*
Men’s testosterone levels begin declining in their early 30s. Most men need to be tested around age 40. Symptoms of testosterone deficiency in men include:
Lack of mental acuity
Loss of libido
Difficulty achieving or sustaining an erection (erectile dysfunction)
It is never too late to benefit from hormone therapy. Pellet HRT for men achieves the sustained levels of testosterone that would be produced by normally functioning testicles. This form of therapy is the only kind that produces the natural level of hormone that men need. Because the testosterone used is totally natural, pellet therapy is ideal for men wanting the benefits of a natural hormone without the drawbacks of synthetic substitutes. Moreover, many studies show optimal testosterone levels in men have may prevent diseases such as cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s disease, prostate cancer, osteoporosis, and more.*
Typical oral and transdermal forms of therapy produce “roller coaster” blood levels of testosterone, which can result in mood and energy fluctuations for the patient. Roller coaster levels of hormones do not have the same long-term benefits as steady-state hormones in the bloodstream.
