Hormone Pellet Therapy for Hot Flashes in Lake Charles, LA
Hot flashes, also called hot flushes, may not seem like a serious problem — until you experience one firsthand. Hot flashes, which can last anywhere from a few minutes to an hour, are extremely uncomfortable and can affect your quality of life. While they are most common in women, hot flashes can occur in men as well. In many cases, the underlying cause of reoccurring hot flashes is hormonal imbalance. In these cases, they can be treated with hormone pellet therapy.

What is a Hot Flash?
Hot flashes are periods of drastic temperature increase in the body, typically followed by an extreme cold known as “chills.” In addition to an increase in body temperature, someone who experiences a hot flash may notice:
- Redness in the face
- Redness in the neck
- Rapid heartbeat
Most hot flashes stem from hormonal imbalance; the body produces too little key hormones, particularly estrogen. Hot flashes can be treated with hormone pellet therapy, a treatment that works at optimizing what we are deficient in.
How Does Hormone Pellet Therapy for Hot Flashes Work?
Hormone pellet therapy uses doses of estrogen to reduce hot flash frequency. The estrogen provided in this treatment is chemically identical to what the body would normally produce were it not for hormone imbalance. Hormone pellet therapy for hot flashes has many benefits when compared with other estrogen-delivery methods like pills, patches or creams. This is particularly true of the BioTE® method using hormone pellet therapy.
