What is Pellet HRT?

Pellet Hormone Replacement Therapy (Pellet HRT) is a cutting-edge approach to balancing hormones in men. Utilizing small, rice-sized pellets, this therapy delivers a steady stream of hormones like testosterone directly into the bloodstream. The pellets, made of natural, plant-based hormones, are inserted subcutaneously in a simple in-office procedure. This method ensures a consistent hormone level, avoiding the fluctuations seen with other forms of hormone therapy. At Beso Wellness located in Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Glendale, AZ, we specialize in customizing Pellet HRT solutions to meet the unique needs of men seeking to improve their hormonal health and overall quality of life.

Most Common Use Cases For Men

Pellet Hormone Replacement Therapy (Pellet HRT) offers a versatile solution for addressing various hormonal imbalances and health concerns in men. At Beso Wellness and Beauty, we find that the most common use cases include:

  • Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT): Ideal for men experiencing symptoms of low testosterone, such as fatigue, low libido, and muscle loss. Pellet HRT provides a stable and consistent testosterone level, enhancing vitality and sexual health.
  • DHEA Enhancement: DHEA is a precursor hormone that supports the production of testosterone and estrogen. Pellets can help elevate DHEA levels, improving energy, mood, and immune function.
  • Anastrozole for Estrogen Control: For men who convert testosterone to estrogen more rapidly, incorporating anastrozole into Pellet HRT can help manage estrogen levels and prevent related side effects.

These tailored applications underscore the adaptability of Pellet HRT to meet the diverse needs of men in Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Glendale, AZ, fostering enhanced health and well-being.

Science behind Pellet Therapy

The efficacy of Pellet Hormone Replacement Therapy lies in its ability to mimic the body’s natural hormone release patterns. Unlike topical creams, injections, or oral medications that can create peaks and troughs in hormone levels, pellets provide a consistent release of hormones directly into the bloodstream. This steady state more closely resembles the endocrine system’s natural rhythm, leading to fewer side effects and improved symptom relief.

  • Bioidentical Hormones: A cornerstone of our Pellet HRT at Beso Wellness is the use of bioidentical hormones. These hormones are derived from natural, plant-based sources and are structurally identical to the hormones produced by the human body, ensuring a high level of compatibility and minimizing the risk of adverse effects. Unlike synthetic hormones, which can have a broad range of side effects due to their imperfect match to human hormones, bioidentical hormones provide a safer, more natural alternative
  • Sustained Release: Once inserted, the pellets consistently release small, physiologic doses of hormones over several months, ensuring stable levels without the need for daily management.
  • Direct Bloodstream Delivery: By bypassing the liver and gastrointestinal system, Pellet HRT avoids the first-pass metabolism effect, delivering hormones more efficiently and effectively.

By leveraging the inherent benefits of bioidentical hormones, we offer our patients in Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Glendale, AZ, a more gentle and effective solution to hormone imbalance, enhancing the body’s ability to achieve and maintain optimal health and vitality. Beso Wellness utilizes advanced diagnostic tools to customize Pellet HRT, aligning with each patient’s specific hormonal needs and health goals, thereby optimizing the science of pellet therapy for men in Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Glendale, AZ.

Benefits and Advantages of Pellet Therapies

Pellet Hormone Replacement Therapy offers several benefits and advantages over traditional hormone replacement methods, making it a preferred choice for many men at Beso Wellness:

  • Consistency and Convenience: Pellets provide a steady hormone level, eliminating the fluctuations associated with other forms of hormone therapy. This steady release reduces side effects and improves overall treatment satisfaction.
  • Long-Lasting Effects: Pellets typically last 3-6 months, reducing the need for frequent doctor visits or daily medication management.
  • Customization: Each pellet therapy plan is tailored to the individual’s specific hormonal needs, ensuring personalized care.
  • Discreet and Minimally Invasive: The pellet insertion process is quick, and once in place, pellets are undetectable, offering a discreet solution for hormone replacement.
  • Natural Hormones: Pellets use bioidentical hormones, offering a natural option that is often better tolerated and more closely mimics the body’s natural hormone production.

These benefits underscore the value of Pellet HRT as a modern, effective approach to managing hormonal imbalances and enhancing men’s health and well-being.

Ideal candidates

Ideal candidates for Pellet Hormone Replacement Therapy at Beso Wellness include men experiencing symptoms of hormonal imbalance, such as fatigue, mood swings, decreased libido, or difficulties in maintaining muscle mass. This innovative therapy is especially beneficial for those seeking a convenient and long-lasting solution to manage conditions like testosterone deficiency, also known as Low T. Men from Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Glendale, AZ, looking for a natural and consistent method to improve their hormonal health, often find pellet therapy to be an optimal choice. Our personalized approach ensures that each patient receives treatment tailored to their specific needs, making it a suitable option for men committed to enhancing their overall quality of life and well-being through balanced hormones.


The Pellet Hormone Replacement Therapy procedure at Beso Wellness involves a series of steps conducted by our skilled medical professionals. Initially, a comprehensive assessment of the patient’s hormonal levels is performed to customize the pellet formulation. The insertion process begins with a local anesthetic to the upper buttock area, ensuring a painless experience. A small incision is then made, through which the customized hormone pellets are inserted subcutaneously. The site is then closed with a small bandage, with no stitches required. This minimally invasive procedure takes just a few minutes to complete, offering a significant advantage in convenience and effectiveness over traditional hormone replacement methods.


When considering Pellet Hormone Replacement Therapy, patients can expect a gradual improvement in symptoms related to hormonal imbalances. Unlike other forms of therapy, pellet therapy provides a steady release of hormones, mimicking the body’s natural rhythms, leading to a more balanced and consistent feeling of well-being. Patients often report enhanced energy levels, improved mood, increased libido, and better overall health within a few weeks of their procedure. Our team in Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Glendale, AZ, ensures patients are well-informed about the procedure, recovery, and realistic outcomes to align expectations with potential results.


Pellet Hormone Replacement Therapy at Beso Wellness delivers tangible results that significantly enhance quality of life. Patients can experience a noticeable reduction in symptoms of hormonal imbalance, such as fatigue, low libido, and mood instability. The therapy’s benefits extend to improved muscle mass and strength, better cognitive function, and a higher sense of vitality. It’s important to note that while many patients report positive outcomes, individual results may vary based on the body’s response to the therapy. Our commitment is to work closely with our patients, monitoring their progress and adjusting treatment plans as necessary to achieve the best possible results.

Potential Risks and Side Effects

Pellet Hormone Replacement Therapy, while generally safe and effective, comes with potential risks and side effects, as does any medical treatment. Patients can rest assured that they will be thoroughly briefed on all possible outcomes before undergoing therapy. Common side effects may include minor bruising, infection at the insertion site, and potential fluctuations in mood or energy levels as the body adjusts to the new hormone levels. Rarely, patients may experience more significant side effects such as increased hair growth, acne, or changes in blood lipid levels.

It’s also crucial to note that while pellet therapy offers a consistent hormone delivery, individual responses to hormone levels can vary. Our medical team is dedicated to minimizing risks by employing precise insertion techniques, utilizing high-quality bioidentical hormones, and providing personalized aftercare plans tailored to each patient’s needs.


After receiving Pellet Hormone Replacement Therapy, we provides comprehensive aftercare instructions to ensure optimal healing and effectiveness of the treatment. Patients are advised to avoid strenuous activities and direct pressure on the insertion site for a few days to prevent dislodgement of the pellet and reduce the risk of infection. Regular follow-up appointments are scheduled to monitor hormone levels and adjust therapy as needed, ensuring patients continue to experience the desired health benefits without complications.

Proper aftercare is essential for the success of pellet therapy, and our team is committed to supporting our patients through every step of their wellness journey, offering guidance and assistance whenever needed.


The cost of Pellet Hormone Replacement Therapy is determined by several factors, including the number of pellets required, the frequency of treatment, and the specific needs of the patient. We strive to provide transparent pricing and work with our patients to explore insurance options and payment plans that make this life-enhancing therapy accessible and affordable. Our goal is to ensure that every patient can achieve the benefits of balanced hormones without financial strain.

What distinguishes bioidentical hormones in pellet therapy from synthetic hormones in other treatments?

Bioidentical hormones used in pellet therapy are structurally identical to the hormones naturally produced by your body, ensuring a seamless integration and minimizing side effects.

Our bioidentical pellet therapy is designed to provide a natural, effective solution for hormone imbalance.

Is there any downtime after the pellet insertion, and when can I resume normal activities?

Most patients experience minimal to no downtime following the pellet insertion procedure. You may be advised to avoid strenuous physical activities for a short period to ensure proper healing of the insertion site. However, normal daily activities can typically be resumed immediately after the procedure, with specific aftercare instructions provided by our team.

How does Beso Wellness monitor the effectiveness of Pellet HRT over time?

Monitoring the effectiveness of Pellet HRT involves regular follow-up appointments to assess your symptoms and hormone levels. We may conduct blood tests and discuss your overall well-being to adjust the therapy as needed. This ongoing evaluation ensures that your treatment remains aligned with your health goals and delivers optimal results.

How long do the effects of Pellet Hormone Replacement Therapy last?

The effects typically last between 3 to 6 months, after which the procedure can be repeated.

Is the pellet therapy procedure painful?

The procedure involves minimal discomfort, with local anesthesia used to numb the insertion site.

Can Pellet HRT help with weight loss?

While not a weight loss solution, balanced hormones can make it easier to manage weight and improve metabolism.

Are the hormones used in pellet therapy natural?

Yes, we use bioidentical hormones, which are chemically identical to those the body produces naturally.

How quickly will I see results from pellet therapy?
