What Are Bio Identical Hormones?

Many Houston women opt for hormone therapy as they age and enter perimenopause and menopause. And there are several types of hormone therapies to choose from: including systemic therapy, local therapy, medications, plant-based alternatives and bio identical hormones. At Houston’s Ovation Med Spa, we focus on hormone therapy for women using bio identical hormones in a pellet form. What is this hormone therapy, and how does it work? Read on to discover more.

Why Consider Hormone Therapy for Women?

As Houston women age, their hormone levels naturally decline, causing several unwanted side effects. Among them include less skin elasticity, moodiness, anxiety, depression, sleep disturbances, a lack of focus and clarity, decreased libido and weakened bone and muscle mass, to name a few. Hormones are responsible for these and many of the body’s other natural functions. So when hormone levels drop, women experience several consequences.

But, it doesn’t have to be that way. Using safe, plant-based hormones compounded by a pharmacist, Houston women can go to Ovation Med Spa to undergo pellet-based hormone therapy for women. Implanted directly under the skin via an incision that doesn’t require stitches, a hormone pellet, which is smaller than a grain of rice, delivers a consistent level of hormone therapy for women for 3 to 5 months. Unlike the “roller coaster” of hormones and emotions that often come with oral and transdermal forms of hormone therapy for women, pellet-based hormone therapy releases a constant, consistent level of hormones in your body, leaving you even-keeled. And, you don’t need to remember to take a pill or apply a cream every day!

Can Men Also Benefit from Hormone Therapy?

While many people think of hormone therapy as a treatment only for women, many men can benefit from the therapy, too. Alleviated symptoms in men include improving a lack of focus and afternoon fatigue, alleviating anxiety, reducing sleeping problems, ending general restlessness, increasing muscle mass and endurance and improving sexual libido and performance.

What Are Hormone Pellets, and What Are in Them?

At the Houston Ovation Med Spa, hormone pellets contain natural, plant-based estrogen and testosterone that are individually compounded by a pharmacist to deliver you a unique, individualized dose. When implanted under the skin, typically in the fat of the hip area, these hormone pellets function as normal, healthy ovaries and testicles with regards to releasing hormones into the bloodstream.
