Hormone Optimization for Females
A better version of yourself is just moments away with our safe and effective therapy.
Do you feel like no matter how well you eat, you can’t seem to shed those extra pounds? Has the energy to hit the gym disappeared? Do you just not “feel right”? It’s possible that you are dealing with the effects of female sex hormone imbalance.
You’re not alone. Hormone imbalance affects millions of women. Mood swings, hot flashes, loss of interest in sex, and decreased energy are just some of the symptoms of low estrogen, low testosterone, or both in women.
Unfortunately, the medical community is more focused on “sick” care instead of “health” care. Your doctor may have told you that “you’re just getting older” and there’s “nothing to do.” Or even worse, you may be scared of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) because you’ve been told myths — like that HRT causes heart disease, strokes, and cancer. Luckily for you, these myths are simply not true.
Bio-identical hormone pellets with BioTE® may be your solution. A better version of yourself is 5 minutes away with this safe and effective therapy.

About Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
BioTE® is a form of bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT).
Bio-identical means that the pellets have the exact chemical structure as your body’s natural hormones. In contrast, synthetic hormones contain unnecessary chemicals and, in some cases, are made from horse urine (yes, you heard that right).
Bio-identical hormones are safe and natural. They are made from vegetables and 100% vegan.
BioTE® pellets are smaller than a grain of rice. Through a simple 5-minute procedure in the office, the pellets are inserted underneath the skin of the upper buttocks area. You won’t see them or feel them.
The BioTE® pellets are then slowly absorbed into your bloodstream over several months. This mimics the natural release of hormones in amounts that your body is accustomed to needing. You may start noticing the positive effects within a few weeks, but it may take your body a few months to feel the full effects of bioidentical pellets.
Although hormone replacement therapy in women can be given by injections, patches, and creams, we believe that bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) has the following benefits:
Instead of painful weekly injections or daily topical therapy, BioTE® pellet therapy is performed during a short office procedure, and the effects last 3-5 months.
Other forms of BHRT cause fluctuating hormone levels. BioTE® pellet therapy effectively keeps your hormone levels right where you need them in an appropriate and consistent range.
BioTE® pellets are created with the highest standards using only natural substances.
A proprietary BioTE® database allows us to personalize the dosage of your BioTE® pellet therapy. You’ll receive a dose that’s right for you. No more guessing.
How Much Does BioTE® Cost?
The cost of the BioTE® hormone pellet therapy insertion is $450 for females. Full payment is expected at the time of the procedure. This does not include the cost of the consultation and lab tests, which can be run through your insurance plan.
Unfortunately, insurance does not cover the cost of BioTE® hormone pellet therapy. We do, however, offer patient financing through Healthcare Financing of America (HFA) and Care Credit (view options in our Patient Portal).
