What is a Hot Flash?

Hot flashes are periods of drastic temperature increase in the body, typically followed by an extreme cold known as “chills.” In addition to an increase in body temperature, someone who experiences a hot flash may notice:

  • Redness in the face
  • Redness in the neck
  • Perspiration
  • Dizziness
  • Rapid heartbeat

Most hot flashes stem from hormonal imbalance; the body produces too little key hormones, particularly estrogen. Hot flashes can be treated with hormone pellet therapy, a treatment that works at increasing the hormone levelsthat are too low.

How Does Hormone Pellet Therapy Help Hot Flashes Work?

Hormone pellet therapy uses doses of estrogen to reduce the number of hot flashes that women experience. The estrogen provided in this treatment is chemically identical to what the body would normally produce were it not for hormone imbalance. Hormone pellet therapy for hot flashes has many benefits when compared with other estrogen-delivery methods like pills, patches or creams. However, this is particularly true of the Biote method using hormone pellet therapy.

Some of the benefits of hormone pellet therapy are:

  • Delivered under the skin in tiny pellets, the size of a grain of rice
  • Treatment is needed only every few months
  • Over 80 years of studies have shown how safe and useful pellet therapy is when done properly
  • Personalized, individual dosing minimizes risk of overdose or accidental exposure to others
  • Delivered consistently 24/7, with no “roller coaster” effect of hormone levels going up and down

Using bio-identical hormone pellet therapy for hot flashes eliminates hormone imbalance problems by replenishing depleted estrogen. Patients who have received this treatment report fewer or no hot flashes and a greatly improved quality of life.
