About BioTE

BioTE is an individually formulated hormone replacement therapy treatment (HRT) designed for each patient. A customized pellet is implanted under the skin that slowly releases chemically identical hormones into the bloodstream to match the hormones the body naturally produces, also known as Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy or BHRT. This simplified HRT can be beneficial to both men and women who struggle with a number of issues, such as hormonal imbalances, weight gain, low sex drive, moodiness, and low energy.

Dr. Melanie Carreon of LCS Medical Spa is a certified provider of BioTE. Our patients have shown noticeable improvements through hormone replacement therapy with BioTE, and it is all done without the trouble of taking pills every day, using creams, or other daily remedies. Want to find out if it is ideal for you? Schedule your BioTE consultation with Dr. Carreon in our Seguin, TX office to learn more. LCS Medical Spa services all of Central Texas, including San Antonio, San Marcos, New Braunfels, and Austin, Texas.

Is BioTe for me?

If you are a man or a woman currently living in Central Texas experiencing hormonal imbalances or symptoms caused by irregular hormone levels, then BioTE pellet therapy at LCS Medical Spa in Seguin, TX may be for you. Many people undergo the hassle of having to take a daily regimen of hormone therapies (i.e., creams and pills), but with BioTE pellet therapy, you don’t have to. The best way to know if you are a good candidate for BioTE is by having a thorough consultation with Dr. Carreon at our Seguin, TX facility. She can determine if hormonal imbalances are the cause of your symptoms and if BioTE can help you. A complete examination, including information on your current medications, hormone levels, and lifestyle activity, will be taken during your visit.

The symptoms below are just a few of the difficulties LCS Medical Spa patients experience before BioTE treatment. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, contact LCS Medical Spa and schedule an appointment with Dr. Carreon. She may be able to provide answers for you.

Some symptoms for men and women:

  • Moodiness

  • Feeling anxious or depressed

  • Feeling lethargic or tired 

  • Gynecomastia

  • Loss of sex drive

  • Night sweats

  • Bouts of insomnia

  • Weight gain

Symptoms that women additionally may experience:

  • Irregular menstrual periods

  • Headaches

  • Unusual dryness of the skin

  • Low estrogen levels

  • Hot flashes

What to Expect

After your comprehensive exam with Dr. Carreon, and she gives you the go-ahead for BioTE, we will schedule you to come in periodically throughout the year to have your BioTE insertion treatments. The procedure takes very little time to perform and is virtually painless. Some numbing medicine is applied to the upper part of your buttocks and a small incision is made. A BioTE hormone pellet, about the size of a grain of rice, is injected under the skin and a surgical adhesive closes up the small incision. Over the course of a few months, the pellet releases your specially designed dosage of hormones to help your body regulate its hormone levels. You may need to come in every 4 – 5 months to have the treatment repeated.

Other Considerations

Other considerations Dr. Carreon takes before formulating your specific dosage can be everything from other medicines or supplements you may be taking, to current therapies you are currently undergoing. BioTE hormone therapy has helped many Central Texans and LCS Medical Spa patients and may do the same for you. Following your treatment, a member of our team will provide you with all necessary aftercare instructions and create an optimal treatment plan for you, including when you may need to receive follow-up treatments.
