Pellet Therapy Q&A

What is pellet therapy?

Pellet therapy, also called bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, is a treatment that increases low levels of specific hormones within your body. Hormone imbalance is expected due to aging or other reasons and can diminish the way your body looks, functions, and feels. It can impact testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, and different hormone levels. 

After 30, many people produce 3-10% fewer hormones yearly. Your Katy Wellness Center & Family Physicians provider might place tiny hormone pellets underneath the skin near your upper buttocks area to restore balance.

What are the benefits of pellet therapy?

If you struggle with hormone imbalance, undergoing pellet therapy at Katy Wellness Center & Family Physicians offers the following benefits:

  • More energy
  • Fewer headaches
  • Improved memory
  • Increased lean body mass
  • Easier weight loss
  • Reduced body fat
  • Healthier skin
  • Fuller, thicker hair
  • Improved sexual desire
  • Reduced vaginal dryness in women
  • Reductions in erectile dysfunction (ED) in men
  • Less depression
  • Fewer hot flashes
  • Reduced mood swings
  • Better sleep
  • Improved focus
  • Better quality of life

Hormone pellets are safe, U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved, and highly effective for restoring hormone balance. The pellets contain hormones that are identical to those your body naturally produces.

Is pellet therapy right for me?

Your specialist discusses your medical history and symptoms to determine if you’re a candidate for pellet therapy at Katy Wellness Center & Family Physicians. They weigh you, check your vital signs, and complete a physical exam. A blood test allows your provider to evaluate your current hormone levels.

What happens during pellet therapy?

During pellet insertion, your provider numbs the treatment area near your upper buttocks. They make a tiny incision and insert small pellets underneath the skin before closing the incision using medical tape.

Over the next few days, weeks, and months, you can expect improvements in how you look and feel as the pellets slowly release hormones into your body. 

How often do I need pellet therapy?

Pellet therapy often lasts three to six months, depending on your gender and the type of pellets you receive. Your Katy Wellness Center & Family Physicians provider lets you know when to schedule the next appointment to replace older pellets. They monitor your hormone levels regularly to ensure proper balance. Contact your provider if you develop new symptoms.
