Our hormones are one of the most important regulatory systems embedded in our bodies. They act as messengers, designed to interact with specific target cells and organs to provoke a change or result. As we age, hormone production decreases and hormone imbalance can occur. Unbalanced hormones can have a variety of side effects and symptoms including decreased energy, difficulty sleeping, decreased mental clarity, decreased sex drive. These are just a few of the symptoms that can occur.

Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)
Premier Skin Clinic offers natural bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) utilizing BioTE’s pellet therapy. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is a way to bio-identically replace the hormones men and women lose over the course of their lives.
What is the goal of Hormone Optimization Therapy?
Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is a treatment for many common and debilitating symptoms that are often overlooked by doctors. Some of these symptoms include exhaustion, stress, foggy thinking, weight loss, sleep disturbances, and so much more. These ailments are treated by getting to the root cause of these complex conditions. Often, people with symptoms like these are suffering from hormonal imbalance. BHRT is a natural and simple method for correcting these complex issues.
What is Bio-identical Hormone Pellet Therapy?
Premier Skin Clinic offers bio-identical hormone replacement therapy in the form of subcutaneous pellets. We offer two kinds of pellets: both estradiol pellets and testosterone pellets. These pellets are inserted into the hip area during an in-office visit after testing has been done to determine the exact quantity of the hormone each patient requires. Every dose is custom created based on your tests to ensure you have the exact number of hormones needed over time.
Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) begins to work within seven to ten days of your pellet insertion. Once a pellet is inserted into the gluteal area, a consistent dose of bio-identical (naturally derived) hormones enter the bloodstream. Every BHRT pellet is custom-compounded to the patient's unique physiology. Tailoring every treatment to the patient helps
ensure the greatest possible success in achieving hormonal balance. Furthermore, the pellets are derived from plants, not animals, which closely mimic the hormones naturally present within your body. Studies have shown that bio-identical hormone pellet therapy may offer you the most benefits because bio-identical hormones, such as the ones used by Premier Skin Clinic, work better with the natural chemistry of the body as they most closely replicate the molecular structure of the hormones that naturally occur within the body.
What can I expect from BHRT pellet therapy?
As each patient’s symptoms are unique, so is each patient’s path to hormone optimization. Most patients report some symptom resolution in as little as two to four weeks, but full optimization may take up to six months. Your journey will be customized to fit your specific needs. It takes more than one to two weeks for your hormones to get out of balance, so expect it to take time to resolve.
Why Bio-identical Pellet Therapy?
Pellet therapy differs from pills and creams in that it allows for consistent dosing throughout the day. Other administrations of hormones can create a rollercoaster effect for the user as the pills and creams do not release consistent amounts of the hormone throughout the day. As a patient, you receive two to four pellet insertions per year. This way you don’t have to think about it, and the hormone is absorbed naturally when your body needs it.
