Pellets are inserted subcutaneously in the upper buttocks. They are made of custom-compounded hormones and binders that hold them together. Every batch of hormones is tested for potency, sterility, and endotoxins, which ensures that patients are being provided the best possible therapy to expedite their journey towards optimal wellness.
During the in-office visit, which only takes a few minutes, patients are brought into the exam room, and the insertion site is numbed. The most common site of insertion is the upper buttocks. A small incision is then made for pellet insertion. Once the pellet is inserted, the insertion site is covered with a small bandage.
