SottoPelle - Frequently Asked Questions
Why Use Bio-identical Hormones?
Remaining health as you age depends on many things including lifestyle and genetics. It also makes perfect sense to replenish what the body needs. That's why we supplement vitamins and minerals. It's also why we use HRT to restore internal balance. Many physicians focus on simply relieving symptoms with pharmaceutical pills, patches, injections or creams. However, in order to return the body to balance, it needs recognizable hormone substances and a precision delivery method to transport them through the blood stream around the clock.
By far the safest, most effective and convenient method, properly administered bioidentical hormone replacement (BHRT) using pellet implants can restore the beneficial hormone levels your body needs.* Pellet implants consist of low dose estradiol and testosterone that releases slowly for 3 to 6 months, 24/7. It is the only BHRT method that can release more hormone when the body needs it.
After decades of treating women and men with this method, we've witnessed firsthand the life-changing impact pellet therapy has had on thousands of patients - whether it helped reverse serious osteoporosis, aided a Parkinson's patient to make strides in mobility, or simply helped revise a marriage.* Many say they've been given back what they thought they had lost forever – their quality of life.

What Are The Benefits Compared to Other Hormone Therapies?
Creams, pills and patches all deliver wildly, inconsistent amounts of hormones unnaturally released into the body that do not mimic how the body naturally delivers hormones. Pellet delivery system is consistent and ongoing as the body requires it. You don’t have to worry about taking a pill, or a patch falling off, or a million other factors that make creams, pills, and patches an unreliable way to deliver hormones. Pellets remain the only delivery system that provides steady blood serum levels over time.
This was clearly documented in a 1993 study conducted by Smith and Studd:

Can SottoPelle Therapy Promote and Preserve Bone Density?
As we age and our hormone levels shift dramatically, maintaining normal bone density becomes critical to good health. Fluctuating levels of estrogen and testosterone decrease bone strength and increase the chance of fractures. Women who undergo premature surgical menopause also remain at greater risk of developing osteoporosis, making it critical to check their hormone levels.
Study demonstrating the four-fold increase in bone density over oral estrogen. 2.5 times greater than patches and 8.3% per year for pellet therapy:
