Pellet Hormone Replacement Therapy for Women: Natural Balance at Beso Wellness and Beauty

Conveniently located to serve the Phoenix, Glendale and Scottsdale area.

What is Pellet HRT?

Pellet Hormone Replacement Therapy (Pellet HRT) introduces a revolutionary approach to restoring hormonal balance in women. This method involves the subcutaneous insertion of tiny, bioidentical hormone pellets that release consistent hormone levels directly into the bloodstream, mirroring the body’s natural rhythms. Unlike traditional hormone therapies that can cause fluctuations, Pellet HRT at Beso Wellness in Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Glendale, AZ, ensures a stable, continuous delivery of hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone, tailored to each woman’s unique physiological needs.

Most Common Use Cases For Women

At Beso Wellness, Pellet Hormone Replacement Therapy (Pellet HRT) is applied to address a variety of hormonal imbalances and health conditions women may experience, especially as they age. Common use cases include:

  • Menopause and Perimenopause Management: Pellets provide relief from menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, and vaginal dryness by restoring estrogen and progesterone levels.
  • Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT): Although less talked about in women, testosterone plays a critical role in libido, bone density, muscle mass, and mood regulation. Pellets can help women with low testosterone achieve a healthier balance.
  • DHEA Supplementation: DHEA is a precursor hormone that supports the production of other essential hormones. Pellets can elevate DHEA levels, promoting improved energy levels, immune function, and skin health.
  • Estrogen Dominance: Pellet therapy can be customized to include anastrozole when necessary, to manage symptoms of estrogen dominance by ensuring a balance between estrogen and testosterone levels.

Science behind Pellet Therapy

Pellet Therapy’s effectiveness is rooted in its science-based approach to hormone delivery. Here’s how it works:

  • Bioidentical Hormones: The pellets are composed of hormones that are biologically identical to those produced by the human body, ensuring high compatibility and reduced risk of adverse effects.
  • Sustained Release: Once inserted under the skin, the pellets consistently release small, physiologic doses of hormones over an extended period, typically 3-6 months, offering a stable hormone environment.
  • Direct Absorption: By delivering hormones directly into the bloodstream, Pellet HRT bypasses gastrointestinal metabolism, offering a more efficient method than oral or transdermal routes.

This scientifically-backed method ensures that women at Beso Wellness receive a therapy that is both effective and closely aligned with the body’s natural hormonal rhythms, supporting overall health and well-being.

Benefits and Advantages of Pellet Therapies

Pellet Hormone Replacement Therapy offers numerous benefits and advantages for women, setting it apart from traditional hormone replacement methods:

  • Consistent Hormone Levels: Pellets deliver hormones at a steady rate, preventing the rollercoaster effects associated with pills or creams.
  • Convenience: With a duration of action lasting 3-6 months, pellets eliminate the need for daily hormone administration.
  • Customization: Therapy is tailored to each woman’s specific hormonal needs, ensuring a personalized approach to hormone balance.
  • Natural Hormones: Utilizing bioidentical hormones reduces the risk of side effects and improves treatment compatibility.
  • Minimal Maintenance: After insertion, the pellets work autonomously, requiring no daily attention or application.

Pellet Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) at Beso Wellness is a refined and minimally invasive procedure designed to deliver a consistent dose of bioidentical hormones directly into your system. Our process begins with a thorough consultation to understand your unique health needs and hormonal imbalances.

  • Consultation and Customization: Each woman’s journey starts with a personalized assessment, including comprehensive hormonal blood tests. This ensures the pellet formulation is precisely tailored to your body’s requirements.
  • The Insertion Process: Performed under local anesthesia, the pellet insertion is a quick and virtually painless procedure. A small incision is made in the upper buttock area, through which the hormone pellets—no larger than a grain of rice—are placed subdermally. The incision is then closed with a steri-strip, requiring no stitches.
  • Post-Procedure Care: Immediate aftercare involves simple instructions: avoid strenuous exercise and soaking the area (like swimming or taking baths) for a few days to ensure optimal healing. You can return to your daily activities, with minimal to no downtime.

Our expert team at Beso Wellness and Beauty ensures the procedure is safe, efficient, and tailored to deliver the best results for women in Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Glendale, AZ.


Choosing Pellet HRT at Beso Wellness and Beauty marks the beginning of a transformative journey towards hormonal balance and enhanced well-being. Here’s what you can expect:

  • Initial Improvements: Within the first few weeks after pellet insertion, many women report a noticeable uplift in energy levels, mood, and overall vitality. These early changes signal the start of your body’s adjustment to more balanced hormone levels.
  • Long-Term Benefits: Over time, the consistent delivery of hormones helps to alleviate the broader symptoms of hormonal imbalance such as hot flashes, night sweats, weight gain, mood swings, and decreased libido. Improved sleep patterns, enhanced mental clarity, and a renewed sense of well-being are among the significant benefits reported by our patients.
  • Ongoing Support and Adjustments: Hormonal health is dynamic, requiring ongoing attention. We monitor your progress closely and are prepared to make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan. Regular follow-up appointments will be scheduled to assess your response to the therapy and ensure your hormone levels remain optimized for your health and lifestyle needs.
