The Truth About Bio Hormones Replacement Therapy

Dr. Jennifer Berman

Physiological aging of the skin begins relatively early – already around the age of 30 – and leads to an increasingly smaller production of collagen molecules, the main protein that makes up the connective tissue of mammals responsible for maintaining skin tone.


At the age of 20, the skin renews itself approximately every three weeks while at the age of 50, every nine weeks.


In addition to physiological factors, there are external factors: the main one is the weight change that can occur both in the case of pregnancy and in the case of sudden weight loss.


There are also environmental factors, such as pollution, ultraviolet rays, the action of atmospheric agents, which cause an alteration of collagen leading to the progressive loss of elasticity.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) With Pellets

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is an effective and natural way to restore hormone balance. Dr. Jennifer Berman likes to use bioidentical hormones in her patients because they are chemically identical to the naturally occurring hormones produced in the human body. They have many benefits for women during the various stages of menopause as well as those that have had a hysterectomy.

What is BioTE?

Why Choose BioTE?

BioTe is a new, innovative method of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). The method uses convenient pellet therapy based on each patient’s customized plan. Extensive lab work and an office visit will be used to determine the patient’s specific needs for optimal hormone health. The insertion of the pellet is done non-surgically just beneath the skin. After insertion, the pellets will release the bioidentical hormones continuously for three to six months as the pellet is absorbed into the body. The benefits of BioTe therapy range from numerous physical benefits such as improved brain function, better mood, thicker hair, and more restful sleep to mental and emotional benefits including improved cognitive function.


BioTE is a very convenient way to receive BHRT. Most patients are able to receive as few as three pellet insertions per year. It is a safe, natural, and effective way to make the hormones available to your body when it needs it without worrying about shots or taking pills every day. BioTE pellet therapy also helps to prevent the rollercoaster effect that can come when taking BHRT in other forms such as oral and topical.
