Biote Hormone Therapy Q & A

What is BioTE hormone therapy?

BioTE hormone therapy gives Kara and the team at Luxe Medical Aesthetics the ability to customize your hormone treatments to best meet your needs. Kara is a certified BioTE provider with advanced training in hormonal optimization. 

BioTE hormone therapy uses bioidentical hormones, which are plant-based hormones modified to have the same structure and function as the hormones naturally produced in your body. They come in a pellet under the skin above your buttocks, slowly and consistently releasing hormones for optimal balance. 

Am I a candidate for BioTE hormone therapy?

After a consultation, Kara and the team at Luxe Medical Aesthetics determine if you’re a candidate for BioTE hormone therapy. You may want to schedule an appointment if you’re having symptoms that suggest hormonal changes, such as:

  • Fatigue
  • Unexpected weight gain
  • Low libido
  • Hair loss
  • Dry skin
  • Mood changes
  • Depression
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Anxiety
  • Brain fog

Luxe Medical Aesthetics provides BioTE hormone therapy for men and women. As you get older, the production of sex hormones declines. This includes testosterone in men and estrogen and progesterone in women.

These hormonal changes cause symptoms many people consider a normal part of the aging process. But with BioTE hormone therapy, the team at Luxe Medical Aesthetics can ease these symptoms, helping you feel and look more like your youthful self. 

The team reviews your symptoms and medical history and runs lab work to check hormone levels to determine if you can benefit from hormone therapy. If you’re a candidate, they have your custom BioTE hormone pellet created. 

What happens during BiotTE hormone therapy?

When your hormone pellet is ready, the team at Luxe Medical Aesthetics has you come back to the office for placement. They make a small incision in your skin for placement of the rice-sized pellet and then cover the area with a bandage.

You should notice improvements in how you feel about a month after placement of your pellet. The team schedules regular follow-up appointments to monitor symptoms and hormone levels.

They replace your pellet as needed, usually every 3-6 months.

What are the benefits of BioTE hormone therapy?

BioTE hormone therapy offers many benefits to your physical and emotional well-being. Once your hormones are at optimal levels, you may notice a boost in energy and mood, improved libido, and clearer thinking.

BioTE hormone therapy may also benefit bone health.
