Virtual Skin Spa’s Newest Offering: The BioTE Method
Feel like yourself again, thanks to the BioTE Method.
Aging isn’t just a skincare issue; it’s a holistic issue that impacts every single part of your body. When you age, you start to face spikes in hormones and sudden hormone drops. Among women, it’s known as perimenopause and menopause—the name used depending on what point in life the woman is at. Men, on the other hand, go through andropause.
Both andropause and menopause are known for a wide range of symptoms that cause discomfort, speed up signs of aging, and also just make life difficult. Each person experiences menopause or andropause differently. However, there are some symptoms that are pervasive for both genders.
Men and women undergoing hormone fluctuations due to aging both tend to experience depression, sexual performance problems, irritability, and anxiety. Virtual Skin Spa became one of the top medispas in Long Island and NYC because we choose to treat aging holistically—and that includes the way you feel in your body.
To help people rewind the ravages of time on a more holistic level, we are proud to offer the BioTE Method in our office.
What Is The BioTE Method?
The BioTE Method is a specialized hormone replacement treatment that helps reverse the symptoms of perimenopause, menopause, and andropause. With BioTE, patients are given bio-identical hormone replacement therapy using small pellets that are placed under the skin.
This method optimizes hormone levels in patients, which allows them to ease into their new stages in life without the rough symptoms. The Virtual Skin Spa uses BioTe pellets that contain bio-identical estrogen and testosterone to quell hormone fluctuation symptoms for women and men.
What Does The BioTE Method Treat?
BioTE Method treatment is best suited to reduce symptoms of menopause and perimenopause. The symptoms it can treat include (but are not limited to) irritability, depression, hot flashes, and mood swings.
Is The BioTE Method Safe?
BioTE is not a new form of hormone replacement therapy; it’s been in use since the 1930s and has a track record of great success. The BioTE Method has been FDA-approved for years as an extremely safe form of hormone replacement therapy.
Since the hormones contained in the pellets are bio-identical, your body will not be able to differentiate between the medication and the hormones that are naturally in your body. This means allergic reactions simply won’t happen.
How Does The BioTE Method Work?
The BioTE Method is designed to offer time-released microdoses of estrogen into your bloodstream. By adding hormones to your system, the negative symptoms displayed by a hormone crash are lessened.
Patients who receive the BioTE Method form of hormone replacement therapy experience less symptoms than those who take injections. Since the hormones bypass your liver, there is also a smaller chance of having hemotoxic side effects. BioTE lasts for approximately 4 to 6 months per treatment.
Why Should I Choose BioTE?
There are many different hormone replacement therapies to choose from, but few have as good a track record as pellet therapy. Most hormone therapies tend to cause “rollercoaster” fluctuations that make certain symptoms worsen.
Pellet therapy, such as the one done by BioTE, does not. This is because BioTE’s pellets steadily release hormones into your body, rather than dole out a large dose that dissipates over time.
How Reliable Is Pellet Therapy?
Pellet therapy alone has been shown to be a highly effective way to regulate hormones and improve wellness. It’s considered to be the most reliable way to control hormone levels during both andropause and menopause. This form of HRT has been in use for decades, and only continues to grow in popularity as years pass.
What Should I Expect From the BioTE Method?
Before any form of hormone replacement therapy can be done, you will need to go to our Long Island location to receive a blood test. This test will determine whether hormone replacement therapy is correct for you. If it is, our BioTE-certified consultants will explain how treatment will work and book your appointment for insertion.
Once the appointment is made, your specialist will inject small pellets underneath your skin. Topical or local anesthetic is typically used. There is no downtime, however, it will take one to two weeks before your hormone levels will stabilize.
How Long Does BioTE Last?
Using hormone replacement through BioTE will last as long as you maintain your pellet treatments. Most patients will have to get treatments every four to six months, with hormone treatments varying depending on your own unique needs
How Much Does BioTE Cost?
An average BioTE hormone replacement schedule can run anywhere from $1,300 to $1,600 per year. That being said, each person will require a different number of pellets and different hormone levels. To find out the total cost for your own unique case, you will need to have a consultation.
