Men and women in every season of life can be plagued by the symptoms of hormonal imbalance, including fatigue, difficulty sleeping, weight gain, low mood, decreased sex drive and increased feelings of anxiety and irritability. Desert Sands Aesthetics & Laser is helping patients rejuvenate their health with bioidentical hormone replacement pellet therapy, creating a customized treatment plan to meet your unique needs.

“Optimizing our hormones is imperative for long-term health,” owner Shannon Evans said. “We provide the traditional methods for hormone replacement therapy, like creams, patches, oral medications and injectables, but we’re also excited to offer Southern Utah a more natural approach through bioidentical pellets.”

Bioidentical hormone replacement pellet therapy is a personalized approach to hormone replacement. It allows patients to absorb the right amount of essential hormones, like testosterone and estrogen, at the right time using a delivery method the body can process efficiently.

Desert Sands Aesthetics & Laser uses pellets from Biote, a leading innovator in preventive medicine. Biote pellets are made with wild yams and soy, which naturally contain the highest concentration of hormones of any substance on Earth.

Unlike synthetic hormones, which are derived from horse urine and other animal products, Biote’s bioidentical hormones contain the exact molecular structure of hormones that the body produces naturally. Hormones delivered via pellet bypass the liver and don’t increase clotting factors or the risk of thrombosis, Evans said, adding that the pellet method also helps reduce the hormone level fluctuations that some patients experience.

Biote pellets are tiny capsules (about the size of a grain of rice) that are inserted under the skin, usually in the upper buttocks area. The hormones enter the bloodstream and gradually dissolve, leaving nothing behind.

Some people may start feeling the effects almost immediately, while others might require two or more pellets before they begin to notice the benefits. Hormones typically reach full optimization around six months after the first insertion.

“Many patients report they feel like a whole new person with revitalized energy, improved sleep, better mood and enhanced libido,” Evans said.

Now is the perfect time to explore bioidentical hormone replacement pellet therapy with Desert Sands Aesthetics & Laser. New patients will receive $200 off their initial pellet placement through Jan. 31.

Every patient’s hormone replacement therapy journey begins with an office visit to evaluate their current hormone levels. Based on a comprehensive consultation and extensive lab work, a provider will either recommend Biote pellets or another method.

Evans recommends that all adults get their hormones checked, but especially if you’re over age 30 or are experiencing symptoms of hormonal imbalance. Desert Sands Aesthetics & Laser recently partnered with Access labs to provide health and hormone testing at a discounted cash price. These tests, which normally cost upward of $1,500, are only $330 for women and $250 for men. The men’s panel includes 30 different labs, while the women’s test features 35 labs.

“Our cash prices for labs can’t be beat,” Evans said. “And if you need someone to go over your labs and help you formulate a plan to maximize your health and wellness, we’ll set up a consultation.”

From hormone replacement therapy and weight loss to skin care and intimate wellness, patients of all ages visit Desert Sands Aesthetics & Laser to rejuvenate their natural beauty with the help of nonsurgical and noninvasive therapies. This state-of-the-art medical spa won gold for aesthetics during the 2023 and 2022 Best of Southern Utah contests, along with silver for med spa in 2021 and again this year.

“The key is being proactive,” Evans said. “Our goal is to help every patient learn to love the skin they’re in.”
