What is BioTE?

BioTE is a type of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy that increases the levels of estrogen, progesterone, or other hormones within your body. It’s a tiny pellet that your provider implants just beneath your skin to release a steady stream of hormones, maintain ideal levels, and reduce unpleasant symptoms.

What are the benefits of BioTE?

BioTE hormones contain synthetic hormones that are identical to the hormones that your body produces naturally. Hormone pellets can dramatically improve your quality of life if you struggle with menopause symptoms or other unwelcome signs of aging. 

What are the symptoms of hormone imbalance?

If you have unbalanced hormones, you might experience the following common signs or symptoms:

  • Fatigue
  • Weight gain
  • Muscle loss
  • Increased body fat
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Reduced sexual desired
  • Thinning hair
  • Loss of breast fullness
  • Hot flashes
  • Sleeping difficulty
  • Depression

Fortunately, you don’t have to live with these symptoms when you choose BioTE at LUNA MED SPA & WASHINGTON OB-GYN, P.A.

Is BioTE right for me?

To find out if you’re a candidate for BioTE, your LUNA MED SPA & WASHINGTON OB-GYN, P.A. provider discusses your symptoms and medical history with you. They complete a physical exam and use blood tests to evaluate your current hormone levels before personalizing a hormone therapy treatment that’s right for you.

What happens during BioTE treatment?

During BioTE treatment, your LUNA MED SPA & WASHINGTON OB-GYN, P.A. specialist numbs the treatment area to ensure you avoid discomfort. They make a tiny incision into the skin in your upper buttocks area, insert a BioTE pellet, and close the incision using medical tape. The treatment is quick and painless.

What should I expect after the procedure?

After BioTE pellet placement, you can resume normal activities immediately but keep the treated area clean. Over time as the pellets release hormones into your blood, you can expect more energy, easier weight management, less body fat, and improved sexual functioning. Your provider replaces the pellets as needed to give you long-lasting results.
