Hormonal imbalances can occur at any time, often without you knowing it. These imbalances can result in bizarre symptoms and side effects that may leave you wondering why you are no longer feeling like yourself. Unfortunately, hormonal imbalances can be incorrectly diagnosed and are often masked by medications targeting anxiety, depression, and insomnia. Hormonal imbalances can be caused by factors such as aging, diet, and stress levels, and they occur in females when there is either too much or too little hormones produced by the endocrine system. Pellet therapy involves inserting a small pellet into the body that helps correct this imbalance and allows you to feel like yourself again.
Women considering pellet therapy should experience hormonal imbalance symptoms but otherwise be in good health. Before you start your course of treatment, you will be required to have a consultation with Dr. Agullo to evaluate your hormone levels and determine if pellet therapy is right for you.
If you have two or more of these symptoms, you could be struggling with a hormonal imbalance:
Most patients return to their normal activities immediately. Patients can drive themselves after the procedure. You can resume exercise within seven to 10 days of pellet insertion. It takes about one week for the pellets to activate and for you to notice the effects. Most pellets last three months and will need to be replaced four times a year.
While experiencing the symptoms associated with a hormonal imbalance may be a sign that you have an imbalance, this is not always the cause; many different conditions can cause these symptoms. If you are experiencing multiple symptoms and cannot find another explanation for them, see your doctor right away to determine if your hormone levels may be responsible.
Any adult woman can benefit from pellet therapy. Pellet therapy can reverse hormone-related complications in both early and later adulthood. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Agullo at Southwest Plastic Surgery to determine if you may be a candidate for pellet therapy.
No; most adult women of any age can experience the benefits listed above with hormone replacement therapy.
Pellet therapy for hormonal imbalance is FDA approved and safe. While rare, some side effects are possible after the first treatment. These can include:
The initial consultation to determine if you are a candidate for pellet therapy is $100. During this consultation, labs will be drawn. You may choose to pay for your labs out of pocket ($350) or through your insurance. The cost for the application of the pellets is $500 for most women. Follow-up labs are done six weeks after and cost $100 or can be submitted through insurance.
