What is BioTE?

BioTE is a bioidentical hormone replacement method which uses compounded hormones that are identical in structure to those your body naturally produces.  That way, your body recognizes and uses these replacement hormones in exactly the same way it would with hormones it produces naturally.

Examples include testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone. BioTE hormones are subdermal pellet your provider implants beneath the skin to release a steady stream of hormones into your body over time.

What are the symptoms of hormone imbalance?

Common signs and symptoms of hormone imbalance include:

  • Fatigue
  • Weight gain
  • Muscle loss
  • Increased body fat
  • Depression
  • Mood swings
  • Hot flashes in women
  • Vaginal dryness in women
  • Loss of breast fullness
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Loss of sexual desire
  • Erectile dysfunction in men
  • Irritability
  • Thinning hair

If hormone imbalance negatively affects your life and you want to look and feel younger, see Dr. Naqvi for an evaluation.

What are the benefits of BioTE?

BioTE is a convenient solution for hormone imbalance due to aging or other factors. It’s a simple procedure that can produce dramatic results.

BioTE can improve your energy levels, sexual function, sexual desire, muscle mass, metabolism, and mood. It makes it easier to lose weight or maintain a healthy weight.

Is BioTE right for me?

To find out if you’re a candidate for BioTE hormone therapy, Dr. Naqvi discusses your symptoms, asks about your medical history, and completes a physical exam.

A simple blood test can determine if your hormone levels are off and which type of BioTE hormone therapy is best for you.

What should I expect during BioTE treatment?

During BioTE procedures, Dr. Naqvi numbs the treatment area and makes a tiny incision in your upper buttocks area.

She implants a hormone pellet just under your skin and closes the incision using adhesive strips. There’s no pain or downtime after BioTE placement, so you can resume a normal routine right away.

Over the next few months, the pellet releases hormones into your body to maintain proper hormone balance. When it’s time to replace the pellet, simply schedule an appointment with Rénove Medical Spa.

Dr. Naqvi monitors your hormone levels periodically to ensure they stay within a normal range and replaces pellets as needed.
