Bioidentical Hormone Replacement
Many patients who have been on creams, pills and patches discover that their hormone treatment can create side effects over time. Non-pellet methods provide an irregular dosing amount, which produces a roller coaster-like effect on the body.
Over time, extra hormones that are stored in the body can spill back into your system and cause a progressive overdosing. This can cause a cascade of imbalances that you were trying to treat in the first place.
Pellets deliver a steady and measured dose of the hormones your body needs, only as it needs them. From Sotopelle and Dr Gino Tutera decades of clinical experience they have found that it is the only reliable way to provide an optimal and balanced levels of hormones in to the body. Sotopelle has made it available to only a few providers throughout Utah and Dr Silkey is one of those experienced providers.
Placement is a simple 10-20 minute procedure where the tiny pellets are placed in the subcutaneous tissue with minimally pain. Local anesthetic is injected after a topical numbing cream is used on the site. Pellets are absorbed slowly over time. These last approximately 3 months for women and 6 months for men. All without any daily creams or injections.
