Hormone Pellet Therapy for Hair Loss in Lake Charles, LA
Many men — and up to 40 percent of women — experience hair loss as they grow older. Many women have at least some hair loss as they approach their perimenopausal and menopausal years. There are many causes of hair loss, but hormonal imbalance is usually a factor. Hair loss can be devastating to a woman's self-image and emotional well-being. It is also devastating — but more socially acceptable — for men to lose their hair.
In men and women, the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT) causes hair loss. DHT is an androgen that shrinks hair follicles on the head, making it impossible for hair to survive, which results in hair loss. Optimizing the hormones with hormone pellet therapy can restore the hormones that maintain proper testosterone levels and are essential to maintaining the youthful appearance of the skin, hair and nails.
Many men and women also experience thyroid problems, which can contribute to hair loss. One symptom of low thyroid hormone, also called hypothyroidism, is the thinning or complete loss of eyebrow hair. Hypothyroidism is more common in women, and it is important to be tested for the proper level of thyroid hormone to make sure you're receiving an appropriate amount. If your level is low, your doctor may prescribe a natural thyroid medication to optimize your thyroid hormone level.
What is Hormone Pellet Therapy for Hair Loss?
The BioTE® method using hormone pellet therapy is a treatment designed to combat hormonal imbalance that can lead to hair loss. Many people with this condition don't realize that the cause of their hair loss is hormonal. But if you notice your hair is thinning, it may be the result of a hormone imbalance.
Hormone pellet therapy can optimize the hormones that have dropped and are causing hair loss. Once the hormones are balanced, men and women tend to notice their hair loss stop — or they may even regrow some hair — as a result of the treatment.
How Does Hormone Pellet Therapy for Hair Loss Work?
The BioTE® method using hormone pellet therapy contains estrogen and testosterone that are derived from natural sources to replicate the body's normal hormone levels. Implants of these hormones that are placed under the skin consistently release small doses of hormones that have a therapeutic effect.
Unlike typical oral and transdermal forms of therapy — which produce “roller coaster” hormone levels that go up and down, resulting in mood and energy fluctuations — hormone pellet therapy provides sustained hormone levels throughout the day for up to three to five months.
