bioidentical hormone replacement

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy: Age better. Function better. Live better.

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy with pellets at our regenerative medical division, RegenCen, helps you function and feel the way you used to. Don’t let aging or menopause get in your way.

Optimize your hormones and optimize your well-being.

BHRT is commonly used as people age, and their hormone levels decline, notably in women in perimenopause or menopause. It is used to boost hormone levels that have decreased and to alleviate a multitude of menopausal symptoms.

With pellet hormone replacement:

  • Increase overall well-being
  • Protect from Alzheimer's
  • Increase sexual satisfaction and drive
  • Reduce hot flashes or night sweats
  • Have better weight control
  • Improve sleep
  • Increase energy
  • Have better urinary control
  • Improve vaginal dryness

Treatment is not just for women; it’s just as effective for men. The production of  T declines as we age, leaving both men and women with less vitality than when they were younger. Our male clients tell us that they feel “like they used to feel.”

With testosterone pellets:

  • Increase overall well-being
  • Have stronger sex drive
  • Decrease symptoms of depression
  • Have better memory and mental clarity
  • Increase energy all day long
  • Increase hair thickness
  • Increase fat burn
  • Have more muscle mass
  • Have better sleep
  • Reduce bloating
  • Stronger erections

In addition to the previous benefits listed, the pellet form of BHRT we use at RegenCen has significant health benefits over topical creams and patches. This tiny implant is the size of a grain of rice, but it constantly provides a steady, tailored dosage of hormones to address your symptoms without requiring any effort. Testosterone and Estrogen pellets last for 4-6 months.

Why bioidentical? Bioidentical hormones match the structure and function of hormones that are naturally produced by the body. Multiple studies have proven their efficacy over synthetic hormone replacement.

How does placing biodentical hormone pellets work? 

The BioTE pellet placement process is relatively easy and takes only about 15 minutes.

The BioTE procedure is a straightforward process that involves the insertion of a BioTE pellet under the skin near the buttocks. Prior to insertion, a mild local anesthetic is used to numb the area, and the pellet is then inserted, with a small bandage applied to cover the insertion site.

The entire process typically takes just 15 minutes, with minimal downtime required for recovery. Although it is common to experience slight swelling and redness at the insertion site for a few days, these symptoms should not persist for long. Following the procedure, it is recommended to avoid strenuous activities for a few days, especially those that involve the lower body, to prevent any soreness in the insertion area.

It is also advisable to avoid baths and swimming, but showering is fine. Once the bandage is removed, you can resume your normal daily activities without any restrictions.
