Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Pellets

What are Pellets?

Sterile pellets are a small, cylindrical form of compounded medication prepared using bio-identical hormones. They are used to treat hormone deficiencies and imbalances in both men and women.

The pellet is only about the size of a rice grain and is implanted below the skin in the gluteal or abdominal area during a simple office procedure. The area is numbed using a local anesthetic, and a tiny incision is made through which the pellet is inserted using a trocar.

Once it is in place, a sterile strip is used to close the incision and covered with an adhesive bandage. Over the course of three to four months, the pellet slowly dissolves as the body draws small, physiologic dosages of the hormone to maintain a more consistent delivery. Once it is dissolved, the procedure is repeated, and a new pellet is inserted.

Why use Pellets?

One of the benefits of pellets is that they can be used to deliver hormones to the body that are both structurally and biologically identical to the body’s own hormones. Bio-identical hormones such as estradiol (E2) and testosterone are the most commonly used ingredients. They are slowly released over a period of three to four months, allowing for more consistent delivery.

Because the pellet is placed beneath the skin, the body naturally does the rest once it is inserted. Patients do not have to remember to take a pill, apply a cream, or give an injection. They also do not have to worry about getting the pellet removed because the body safely dissolves it over time. Once it is dissolved, the next pellet can be inserted by Dr.Stowell.

What are Pellets Used for?

Pellets have been used as a safe, effective way to provide the body with hormones necessary for the treatment of a wide variety of conditions. The doctor may prescribe sterile pellets for both men and women experiencing menopause or andropause, and with some common conditions such as:

Men

  • Testosterone deficiencies
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Urinary problems
  • Weight gain
  • Low libido

Women

  • Menstrual headaches
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Incontinence
  • Menopause
  • Migraines
  • Low libido
  • Weight gain
  • Depression
  • Fatigue

FAQs About Pellets

We order our pellets from dedicated facilities that comply with both USP and regulations and maintain DEA manufacturing licenses. Extensive and comprehensive sterility testing is done with us, including in-house testing and testing and verification through a third-party laboratory. We want to ensure that only the highest quality ingredients are used in preparing pellets, and we consult with pellet expert pharmacists.

For a more natural product, you want to look for sterile implantable pellets that are created by fusing hormone powder and steric acid without the use of chemical binders. These compressed pellets are about the size of a grain of rice and should be resistant to breakage and have a consistent color and texture for higher quality results that patients can be con dent in.

After getting your health information, including labs, we will prescribe the proper amount for your specific needs. Once they receive our order, they double-check for accuracy and completeness and go through extensive safety and sterility testing before shipping it to our clinic. This will allow you to rest assured that the pellet you are receiving is compliant with high-quality testing standards and prepared to meet your needs.

It can be hard to predict when you may need a prescription. Knowing that getting the medication you need when you need it is important, we can have them overnighted.
Sterile implantable pellets are a safe, effective way to get the exact dosage of hormones your body needs for improved health and wellbeing. To find out more about how you could benefit from pellets, send us an email with a question or call and schedule to get started.

Restore Your Testosterone | Scottsdale, AZ

Natural levels of testosterone can vary a great deal from male to male. A study of thousands of American soldiers found that even a normal range varied by a factor of five! More importantly, those with higher than average testosterone levels had lower blood pressure, lower levels of fat, and a smaller chance of heart disease.

As you might expect, they also tended to self-rate their health as being better than those with less testosterone. This means that even a male with testosterone levels within the lower end of the “normal” range can greatly benefit from higher testosterone levels.

Health Benefits Of Good Testosterone Levels

A lower level of testosterone can correlate with lower sex drive, fatigue, and depression, not to mention decreased muscle mass, bone strength, and density. Conversely, a higher testosterone level can help you increase muscle mass, bone strength, and density.

Injectable, Pellets and Creams?

There are several safe and effective methods for increasing your testosterone levels. Ask our doctor as to which one is right for you.

Injectable, Pellets, or Cream? How Exactly Are They Different?

Testosterone is often thought of by the public as a male hormone, but both men and women need appropriate testosterone levels to lead a healthy life. Some consider testosterone injections to be the most effective and efficient method for increasing testosterone levels in your body. Of course, we acknowledge that some of our clients are uncomfortable with needles. For those that prefer not to get injections, creams may provide an effective alternative method. With creams, testosterone is absorbed through the skin.

Testosterone pellets, in one form or another, have been around for more than seventy years. Inserting pellets is a relatively simple procedure that can be done in our Scottsdale clinic in the course of one appointment. A small incision in the area of the upper hip. In fact, the incision is so small that no stitches are required. The pellet itself is quite small and not much larger than, say, a grain of rice.

Testosterone plays an important role in maintaining lean muscle mass, sex drive, energy, and one’s sense of well-being in both males and females. Not having enough testosterone can leave one feeling fatigued and unhappy. Conversely, higher levels of testosterone can confer a greater sense of well-being.

Peptides

Instead of taking an HGH (human growth hormone), we can instead prescribe Sermorelin Acetate, a peptide containing 29 amino acids. It works to stimulate the pituitary gland to produce more HGH naturally.

What are the Health Benefits of Sermorelin?

Since Sermorelin is used to help stimulate the production of natural growth hormone levels, the benefits of Sermorelin are the same as taking HGH Therapy treatment.

Sermorelin therapy benefits include:

  • Increased bone density
  • Improve the rate of muscle growth
  • Increase muscle mass
  • Increased exercise capacity

Many people report an increased sense of overall well-being and heightened awareness.

Side Effects of Sermorelin

Almost all medicine can have side effects, and we have had no one report any noticeable side effects of Sermorelin yet.

Some of the side effects could include facial blushing, light headaches, nausea or vomiting, and pain at the injection site.

Increasing your natural hormone levels using Sermorelin may help both your physical and emotional well-being. It’s an inexpensive alternative to taking HGH.
