How Does Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Work?
You have symptoms that are affecting your daily life, but how do you know if your hormones are to blame or if it’s something else? The first step in bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is an initial consultation. Your consultation is so important because it helps us confirm that you are deficient in certain hormones and it also helps up identify which hormones need supplementation.
We will review your current symptoms during this appointment and find out more about your health history, including any past symptoms you’ve experienced. We’ll also ask you about your family medical history, lifestyle, and diet. Your diet and lifestyle can affect your hormones and your treatment.
We often make recommendations to help patients achieve the best results during treatment. These recommendations may include getting more exercise each day or eating less red meat, among others.
The Treatment Process
Once we review the basics with you, we will perform the necessary diagnostics to obtain a laboratory analysis of your hormone levels. Then, we can create your customized treatment plan and will present it to you during your next appointment. We will prescribe the correct dosage of bioidentical hormones to help regulate and balance your hormones and alleviate your current symptoms.
Once this treatment begins, you won’t be left out on your own. We will monitor your hormone levels at each visit and make adjustments as needed to ensure that you receive the right amount of hormones necessary for your body.
There are different forms of hormone replacement therapy, but at Ciao Bella Medical Center and Spa, we offer hormone pellet therapy. Pellets are smaller than a grain of rice and contain all of the bioidentical hormones your body needs to achieve a state of hormonal balance. Patients love this form of the BHRT because it doesn’t require any work on their part.
When you choose this treatment method, all you have to do is show up at your treatment appointments, and we will take care of the rest. You’ll achieve balanced hormones without having to remember to take pills, apply patches, or administer any injections.

When you arrive for your appointment, a small incision will be made on your skin’s surface, typically in the fatty tissue on the hip. We will implant the pellet just below your skin’s surface, suture the incision and cover it with a bandage. The entire process takes anywhere from 15 to 20 minutes to complete, and you can resume your normal activities.
Is There Any Downtime?
