Hormone Optimization with Pellets

What is the goal of Hormone Optimization Therapy?

Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is a treatment for many common and debilitating symptoms that are often overlooked by doctors. Some of these symptoms include exhaustion, stress, foggy thinking, weight loss, sleep disturbances, and so much more. These ailments are treated by getting to the root cause of these complex conditions. Often, people with symptoms like these are suffering from hormonal imbalance. BHRT is a natural and simple method for correcting these complex issues.

What is Bio-identical Hormone Pellet Therapy?

Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) begins to work within seven to ten days of your pellet insertion. Once a pellet is inserted into the gluteal area, a consistent dose of bio-identical (naturally derived) hormones enter the bloodstream. Every BHRT pellet is custom-compounded to the patient's unique physiology. Tailoring every treatment to the patient helps ensure the greatest possible success in achieving hormonal balance. Furthermore, the pellets are derived from plants, not animals, which closely mimic the hormones naturally present within your body. Studies have shown that bio-identical hormone pellet therapy may offer you the most benefits.

How can I get started with Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Schedule an office visit with your DermaVogue to test your current hormone levels. Based on your comprehensive consultation and thorough blood work panel, your provider will determine if you are a candidate for BioTE pellet therapy. Your provider will schedule a follow-up appointment for your pellet therapy insertion.

What can I expect from BHRT pellet therapy?

As each patient’s symptoms are unique, so is each patient’s path to hormone optimization. Most patients report some symptom resolution in as little as two to four weeks, but full optimization may take up to six months. Your journey will be customized to fit your specific needs. It takes more than one to two weeks for your hormones to get out of balance, so expect it to take time to resolve.

Erectile Shot in Temecula Valley

What does the Erectile Shot do?

The Erectile Shot involves taking platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from your blood and injecting it into your penis. This means your provider takes your own growth factors and injects them into your penile tissues to promote tissue growth and purportedly give you better erections.

How long do Erectile Shot last?

The Erectile Shot is a simple, yet effective way of addressing concerns related to your sexual wellness such as erectile dysfunction, and a loss of sensation or sex drive. You will be able to benefit from its effects for 6-12 months, and once they wear off, you can easily receive a repeat injection.

How many times can you get the Erectile Shot?

Some men require more than one treatment to achieve the results they desire, we recommend a series of 3 treatments at least 4 weeks apart. If a patient is determined to fully optimize function without committing to a more invasive procedure or prescription drugs, we recommend a second Erectile Shot within 3-months to improve initial results. Three treatments are needed.

Can the Erectile Shot increase size?

For some men, the Erectile Shot can increase their overall size. This happens because the PRP triggers the formation of healthy and strong tissue. In addition to the development of new erectile tissue, you will also enjoy new blood flow to the penis.
