Board Certified Cosmetic Laser Surgeon Serving Reston, D.C., Tysons Corner, Ashburn, Virginia.

Anti-Aging Hormone Therapy (Pellet Therapy) for Aging Condition

Pellets are used to treat hormone deficiencies and imbalances. This is done by implanting them in the subcutaneous tissue of the gluteal or abdominal regions in men and women. Sterile pellets are a small and cylindrical dosage form and are about the size of a grain of rice, containing compressed bio-identical hormones. They are placed beneath the skin by a health care practitioner during a simple office procedure. Anti-Aging Hormone Therapy allows the body to slowly draw out small, physiologic doses of the needed hormone, providing for a more consistent steady-state delivery. The sterile pellets typically dissolve over a period of three to four months. However, sometimes it may last up to six months, and then need to be repeated again. In this article we discuss everything you need to know about Anti-Aging hormone therapy.

What's the procedure of Anti-Aging Hormone Therapy (Pellet Therapy)

The simple office procedure requires a small local anesthetic injection in the insertion area, then a tiny incision is made in the skin.  A device called a trocar, is then inserted into the subcutaneous layer beneath the skin. First, the needle end of the trocar is removed. Then pellets are placed into the trocar device and a blunt obturator is inserted into the trocar to gentle advance the pellets down into the insertion tract. Once pellets are placed, the practitioner will typically close the tiny incision site. This is done with a simple sterile strip closure and then cover with an adhesive bandage.

Why is Pellet Hormone Therapy used?

Pellet hormone therapy has been used since the late 1930's. It is often considered one of the most natural ways to deliver hormones to the body. The hormones are identical to the body’s own both structurally and biologically. Because the body does the work on its own once the sterile pellet is inserted, this increases compliance because patients do not have to remember to take a pill, give an injection, or apply a cream each day.

“Dr. Dima is very knowledgeable and very compassionate. She always makes me feel like I’m a priority and makes me so comfortable about my treatments. I think she would be great for teenagers and their skin issues and I would recommend any of my family to go see her.” *

– Kendra

“Dr. Ali not only fixed the physical appearance of my scar, but healed the psychological and emotional scar it caused. She  genuinely cares about the wellbeing of her patients and I trust her implicitly.” *

– B. Paget

“Dr. Ali is not only a beautiful, highly intelligent woman but also an amazing healer. She treated my face, ravaged over time byrosacea, coupled with multiple broken facial blood vessels and transformed what was ruddy, red and sometimes purple hued skin into a clearcomplexioned healthy and totally makeup free face, and I thank her most graciously.” *

– Chris D.

“I think Dr. Ali is very honest and upfront. I didn’t feel I had to get 10 opinions before making a decision. I never feel pressured. Everyone is professional and top notch, the type of people you want to work with. I think the whole office atmosphere is wonderful, I feel friendly with everyone that works there and I love the products. When you don’t come often you feel guilty. It’s usually a family affair to come see Dr. Ali; it’s me, my daughter and granddaughter, it’s a 2 hour drive so we make a day of it.” *

“When I see Dr. Ali I am treated superbly in everyway, I would not go anywhere else! I wish my family lived locally so they could see her too.” *
