The hormones perform various body functions, including regulating and controlling organs and tissue. They serve as chemical messengers to the brain. Usually, the body naturally produces the hormone; however, as we get older, the hormone production levels decrease, causing symptoms that impact our lives negatively. San Antonio BioTE specialists offer bioidentical hormone therapy to replace your hormone levels and relieve uncomfortable symptoms. Read on to learn more about BioTE and how it helps restore your hormone levels.
What is the role of hormones in the body?
Typically, several hormones in your body are responsible for specific body functions, including reproduction, cell growth and repair, metabolic function and hydration maintenance, and more. When your body stops or reduces the production of the hormones, usually during menopause, it interferes with the above functions.
What is BioTE?
It is a form of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy that adds hormone levels to your body, including progesterone, and testosterone, among other hormones. BioTE is a tiny little piece placed under your skin to let out a balanced stream of hormones, minimize the horrible symptoms and maintain the correct hormone levels.
What are the benefits of BioTE?
BioTE hormones have artificial hormones that are similar to your natural hormones. The hormone pellets work magic in promoting your life quality and managing menopause symptoms and aging signs.
What are the symptoms of hormone imbalance?
When you have reduced production of hormones or unbalanced hormones, you are likely to experience the following symptoms.
- Hot flashes
- Muscle loss
- Reduced sexual desires
- Weight gain
- Muscle loss
- Vaginal dryness
- Thinning hair
- Increased body fat
- Loss of breast fullness

Having to deal with all these symptoms daily can be distressing. BioTE provides ease with these symptoms, promoting your quality of life. LUNA MED SPA & WASHINGTON OB-GYN, P.A. are here to help you deal with these symptoms and better your life.
Who is the right candidate for BioTE?
Usually, to determine whether you qualify for the BioTE treatment, your provider asks about your symptoms and evaluates your medical history. They also conduct a physical exam and take blood tests to examine your current hormone levels before designing a customized hormone therapy treatment for you.
What happens during BioTE treatment?
Your provider uses a numbing cream on the treatment area to ensure comfort. They then make a small cut on the skin in your upper buttocks area, place the BioTE pellet, and close the cut using medical tape. The whole process takes a short while and is painless.
What to expect after the procedure?
You are free to go back to your normal activities after the treatment. However, it’s critical to keep the treatment area clean. The pellet lets out the hormones gradually into your body, allowing you to experience the unpleasant symptoms.
You can expect to feel increased sexual desire, better sleep, improved energy levels, less body fat, and more. For lasting results, your provider keeps on replacing the pellets.
Low hormone production in your body can affect various body functions, causing distressing hormones.
