HORMONE PELLETS (BHRT)
Bio-Identical Hormone Pellets in Marion, Ohio
Hormone Pellets at Elite MedSpa is the most effective way of administering bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). Elite MedSpa is one of only a few places in Marion, Ohio, offering this treatment. There are several reasons why hormone pellet therapy is more effective than other methods of administering BHRT.
BHRT with hormone pellets is ideal because of the ability to deliver the appropriate dose of hormones at all times of the day, for several months. This ensures you continuously feel the benefits of your newly balanced hormones without having to undergo treatments often or take additional medication.
Pellet Hormone Replacement Therapy
The hormones used in pellet implants are biologically identical to ours. Hormone pellets contain either estradiol or testosterone and are a little larger than a grain of rice. Because these hormones are biologically identical to the ones naturally found in our bodies, they are able to supplement hormone levels and stimulate the same effects in the body.
Insertion of hormone pellets is a relatively straightforward procedure, carried out under local anesthesia. During treatment the pellets are inserted in the fatty area under the skin through a minimal incision in the upper buttock or love handles. After that, sterile-tape strips close the incision. Patients typically cannot feel the implants below their skin. We recommend exercise be minimized for a few days to allow the incision to heal.

Depression, brain fog, insomnia, muscle loss, and low energy are some of the symptoms pellet therapy can help with. Aging conditions like menopause and perimenopause can cause hot flashes, mood swings, and weight gain in women. Post-menopausal women experience a wide range of symptoms, including hair loss, low libido, and irregular menstrual cycles.
In addition, undergoing BHRT can prevent serious conditions such as osteoporosis from developing by maintaining the integrity and health of your bones.
The effects of aging on men, known as andropause, are caused by fluctuations in testosterone levels. As a result, they can cause many of the same symptoms. Therefore, testosterone pellets can help retain muscle mass, cognitive and energy levels and restore sex drive.

At Elite MedSpa, we only use the highest quality, FDA-approved hormones, so you can regain your balance naturally from the inside out.
How long do hormone pellets last?
Pellets tend to last between 3 and 5 months for women and 5-6 months for men. Factors that may increase the pellet absorb rate include high-stress levels, physical activity, medications, and lack of sleep. As a result, these factors would lead to the insertion of new pellets sooner.
The pellets naturally dissolve as they absorb into the body.
When reinserting your next pellets, we typically insert them on the opposite side of the body, therefore alternating the incision site each time.
