At Ciao Bella Medical Center & Spa in Newnan, GA, we know how important balanced hormones are to your physical, mental, and emotional health. For that reason, we offer an effective treatment called bioidentical hormone therapy that uses hormone pellets to balance the hormones of both men and women. Pellet therapy is a treatment that can restore balance to the body, eliminate symptoms, and help you feel your best, regardless of your age or life stage.
Bioidentical Hormone Therapy: How Do Hormone Pellets Work?
Pellet therapy is one method of many different types of bioidentical hormone therapy. This method uses tiny pellets smaller than a grain of rice that contains all of the hormones your body needs to correct the deficiency. Once inserted into the body, they begin to balance the hormones immediately. The bioidentical hormones in these pellets come from natural sources like plants and are molecularly identical to the body’s hormones naturally.
Because they’re near matches to the hormones made by the body, they provide it with everything it needs to achieve balance, eliminate symptoms, and help you look and feel your best. They restore balance to the body by giving the hormonal system exactly what it needs to achieve balance and thrive.
The Treatment Process
The pellet therapy treatment process involves a few steps. These steps are all important because each helps you reach the ultimate goal: balanced hormones.
Step One: Identifying Your Imbalance
The first step in this process involves identifying your hormonal imbalance. Both men and women suffer from hormone imbalances but to different degrees. Some imbalances are mild yet still cause symptoms that interfere with daily life, and some imbalances are more severe and result in more severe symptoms.
Whatever the case, we can identify your hormone deficiency with a comprehensive blood test. This blood test will identify and determine your hormone deficiency to treat it. It will allow us to prescribe pellets with the right dosage to help give your body exactly what it needs to achieve balance during the treatment process.
Step Two: Treating Your Imbalance
Once we can determine that you have a hormone imbalance, we can create a personalized treatment plan with the right dosage for you. This pellet will have everything that your body needs to achieve optimal balance. Once we determine your imbalance and the necessary dosage for your pellet, we can schedule your pellet insertion appointment.
Step Three: Inserting the Pellets
The pellet insertion process is quick and simple. All you have to do is show up, and our hormone experts will take care of the rest. We will sanitize an area of fatty tissue, typically on the hip, and then numb that area so that you don’t feel a thing. A tiny incision will be made to place the pellet beneath the skin’s surface, and then the area will be covered with a bandage until the area heals.
This entire treatment takes approximately 15 minutes to complete. As soon as the pellet is inserted, it will begin working to balance the hormones. Once it’s inserted, the body will begin using the bioidentical hormones as the bloodstream absorbs them.
Step Four: Follow-Up Treatments and Hormone Monitoring
Once you receive treatment, you won’t be left out on your own. You will be monitored by our experts to ensure that you are getting the exact hormones your body needs to maintain balance. At your follow-up appointments, we will measure your hormones to make sure that your dosage is delivering all the hormones your body needs to achieve balance. You will only need a few appointments each year to maintain balanced hormones year-round.
