BioTE in Miami, FL
Are you feeling tired and less energized? Has your sex life been affected? You’re not alone. Many people don’t realize the important role your hormones play into your mental, physical and emotional well-being. With BioTE, we can help optimize your hormones level by performing a simple procedure that requires no downtime. At Optimal Health & Skin, our BioTE certified provider will address your concerns and create a treatment plan made specifically for you.
What is BioTE?
BioTE is a method of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, also known as BHRT, that seeks to return the hormone balance to youthful levels in men and women using subcutaneous testosterone and/or estrogen pellets. These pellets are inserted into the upper buttocks area during an in-office visit, after testing has been done to determine the exact quantity of the hormone the patient requires. Every dose is custom created based on a consultation and extensive lab work to ensure that a patient receives the exact concentration of hormones needed.
How Much Does BioTE Cost?
Since each treatment plan is customized to the individual needs of the patient, we highly recommend setting up your FREE screening appointment with our office. During this screening, we can explain a little better our program options, address any concerns you may have and go more into depth on what exactly BioTE is and how it can benefit you.
Am I a Candidate for BioTE?
There are only a few occasions where a patient may not be considered a candidate. Our provider, during the screening appointment, will be able to make that determination.
How is BioTE Performed?
During an in office-visit, a patient is brought into the exam room, and the insertion site, usually somewhere around the upper buttocks, is numbed. A small incision is made, and the hormone pellets are inserted. After, the insertion site is covered with a small bandage. The pellets dissolve, and the body absorbs the contents, leaving nothing behind. Every patient’s symptoms are unique, so each journey is customized to fit your needs. Some patients report seeing improvement in as little as four weeks, but full optimization can take up to six months.
What is Recovery Like After BioTE?
After the pellet-insertion process is complete, it is best to eliminate lower body exercise for a short period of time. Walking is fine, but no strenuous exercise is recommended. Showers are permitted, but bathtubs, hot tubs, and swimming should be avoided. After the bandage is removed, you can resume normal exercise and swimming routines.
How Long Will My BioTE Results Last?
Pellets last three to six months depending on gender, weight, absorption rates, and the amount of deficiency or surplus of hormones present within the patient at the time of insertion. Pellets are reinserted between two to four times per year to help keep hormones optimized and balanced.
