BioTe Q & A


What causes hormonal imbalance?

Hormones fulfill the role of chemical messengers in your body, and facilitate all kinds of natural actions and reactions. As you age, your body begins to produce fewer hormones, and your levels can become unbalanced. 

That can leave both men and women with a number of unpleasant symptoms, including:

  • Brain fog
  • Depression
  • Lost muscle mass
  • Increased body fat
  • Fatigue
  • Mood changes
  • Decreased sex drive
  • Irritability 
  • Sleep disruptions

These are just some of the symptoms associated with hormonal imbalance. While some men and women are able to cope with fluctuating hormone levels with relative ease, others find the transition to be incredibly uncomfortable and disruptive.

What can be done to treat hormonal imbalance?

Hormone replacement therapy is the preferred treatment for hormonal imbalance. There are numerous options to choose from. After extensive research, Scott B. Callahan, PA-C, chose to offer BioTE hormone therapy at Dolce Vida Med Spa. 

This system uses bioidentical hormone pellets to deliver a safe and steady dose of supplemental hormones. Bioidentical hormones are created from plant sources, and share the same chemical makeup as the hormones your body produces naturally. 

The pellet delivery system eliminates the need to keep up with a schedule of pills, patches, or creams for your hormone replacement therapy. Tiny pellets are placed just beneath the surface of your skin and release a steady volume of hormones over time. Your body is able to absorb and process all portions of the pellets, so there is no need for removal. 


What is the process for getting BioTE pellets?

Your in-office visit to have pellets placed is simple and straightforward. A numbing medication reduces sensation in the area of your upper buttocks. Your provider makes a small incision and places the pellet into position. 

The incision is very small and shallow, and there’s no need for sutures. A simple bandage is all that’s needed to cover the site. 

After your appointment, you must avoid strenuous activities for a few days as your body heals. You should also avoid submerging the area in water, although showers are not a problem. 

You should begin to notice improvements in your symptoms within a few weeks, with the full effects becoming apparent within six months. Your practitioner can monitor your improvements and tailor future treatments to meet your specific set of needs. 

If you’re tired of living with the symptoms of hormonal imbalance, schedule an appointment to explore BioTE hormone replacement in greater detail. You can schedule online any time of day or night, or call the office during business hours to book your visit.
