Hormones perform the vital function of regulating the body’s systems to achieve balance and perform optimally. When hormones get out of balance, the symptoms can become increasingly uncomfortable and disruptive. We can help you find your equilibrium again with BioTE® Hormone Optimization Therapy at The Refinery Medspa.

What is BioTE® Hormone Optimization Therapy?

Too little or too much of a hormone can disrupt the balance of your health, cause uncomfortable symptoms, and lower your quality of life. These symptoms can present as stress, weight gain, disturbed sleep, brain fog, and general malaise.

BioTE® Hormone Optimization Therapy is designed to provide personalized relief from symptoms that can often get overlooked by general healthcare providers. Each compound is customized to your individual physiology to maximize its impact and restore your hormone levels. BioTE® hormones are bioidentical, which means they are chemically identical to those which your body produces. These hormones bring physical, mental, and emotional benefits to restore balance and harmony in your body.

Benefits include:

  • Improved brain function
  • Better mood with fewer swings
  • Restful sleep
  • Thicker hair
  • Improved muscle function
  • Greater bone density
  • Reduced Stress
  • Less irritability

The BioTE® method involves the subcutaneous placement of a pellet containing your blend of bioidentical hormones for a continuous controlled release of hormones to restore your balance. As the hormones near full release, the pellet dissolves completely.

What is BioTE® Hormone Optimization Therapy Like?

After extensive lab testing to determine the best custom compound for you, a pellet containing your Hormone compound is created. During your insertion appointment, the area of insertion—typically the upper buttocks—is numbed. The pellet is inserted through a small incision, which is then covered and bandaged. You may resume most of your normal activities after your appointment, but exercising the lower body should be minimized until the bandage is removed. The number of times a new pellet will be inserted within 12 months is determined by the patient’s unique physiology and hormone dosage.

What Results Can I Expect?

Some clients report feeling improvement to their symptoms in as little as 4 weeks, but it may take up to 6 months for others to reach a stable level of relief. The duration of your equilibrium remains for as long as the dosage is being released. Once the pellet is depleted, another insertion session is necessary to continue your BioTE® Hormone Optimization Therapy.

Is There Any Downtime?

It is recommended you avoid saunas, hot tubs, and pools until your bandage can be removed. Showers are fine, but avoiding hot baths is also recommended.
