BioTE Hormone Replacement Therapy Q & A

What is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a treatment method used to resolve symptoms associated with hormone decline or loss. The therapy derives the name bioidentical because the hormones used in the protocol are natural and are chemically identical to those that the body produces naturally.

Your body recognizes the bioidentical hormones and synthesizes them for use just as if your body had produced them on its own.

At Signature Skin Care in Edmond, Dr. Ressler offers BioTE pellet therapy to replicate your body’s normal hormone levels.

What is BioTE pellet therapy?
BioTE pellets are derived from natural plant sources and are formulated to be identical in function as your body’s natural testosterone and estradiol. Each pellet is slightly larger than a grain of rice.

Dr. Ressler places the tiny pellets under your skin where they slowly and consistently release needed hormones throughout your body. Patients love the convenience of pellet therapy; there are no pills to remember to take, no creams to rub on, and no injections required.

On average, pellet therapy is effective for about three to four month for women, and six months for men; It helps manage hormonal fluctuations without unpleasant side effects.
What are the symptoms of declining hormone levels?

Hormones are chemical messengers in your body that influence all your body’s systems from immune function to fertility to metabolism. Hormone imbalance is an unwelcome part of the aging process.

If you’re always tired, have fluctuating emotions, or have lost interest in sex, hormone decline may be the culprit. A few key symptoms include:


  • Hot flashes
  • Headaches
  • Insomnia
  • Decreased sex drive
  • Emotional swings
  • Lack of motivation
  • Aging, dry skin
  • Increased body fat
  • Vaginal dryness
