BioTe™

Hormone imbalance, which is often unavoidable during the aging process, can lead to many unwanted side effects. Our team at Kevin R. Hanz, M.D. Aesthetic Plastic understands that this can be a delicate issue and is committed to helping you feel back to normal as soon as possible.

Dr. Hanz is incredibly experienced in utilizing BHRT with BioTe in order to restore the hormone levels of his patients in Dallas, TX.

What is BioTe™?

Our hormones are responsible for a variety of functions within the body, including our emotions, energy levels, sex drive, and overall health. However, as our bodies get older and our hormone levels begin to decrease, these imbalances can cause a number of issues. Fortunately, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is a natural alternative to many options that can be used to treat hormonal imbalances. At Kevin R. Hanz, M.D. Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, we specialize in utilizing BioTe to regulate these hormones and keep our patients’ bodies on track.

IS BIOIDENTICAL HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY RIGHT FOR ME?

Though commonly associated with women, improper hormone balances also frequently affect men. To be considered an ideal candidate for BHRT, we typically recommend for patients to be in good overall health with no history of certain cancers, deep vein thrombosis, stroke, or blood clots. Additionally, we do not recommend the treatment for women who are pregnant. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy with BioTe has proven to be useful for patients experiencing a number of symptoms, including:

 

  • Decreased libido
  • Hot flashes
  • Fatigue
  • PMS
  • Erectile Dysfunction
  • Weight gain
  • Mood swings
  • Irregular sleep patterns
  • Spotty memory
HOW DOES BIOIDENTICAL HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY WORK?

The process starts with a consultation in which we will get a better understanding of your issues as well as your medical history. We will then perform some tests in order to accurately identify your hormone levels. If at this point, we deem you to be a good fit for BHRT, we will administer it as a pellet composed of testosterone, progesterone, estrogen, DHEA, pregnenolone, or a combination of any of these hormones, depending on the exact needs of your body. Follow-up visits will be necessary in order for us to monitor your progress and make any required changes to your dosage.

WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT FROM BIOTE?

Generally, side effects of BHRT are nonexistent or incredibly mild due to the treatment’s natural composition. We recommend scheduling follow-up appointments about every 4 – 6 months in order to ensure your body is able to consistently maintain the results of the treatment. It may take several weeks or even months before the symptoms begin to subside as the pellets slowly work their way into the body.

Is HRT safe?

Yes, for the majority of patients, BioTe hormone replacement therapy (HRT) can be very safe and effective. Like other types of hormone therapies, BioTe has a small risk (2%) of side effects, including mild acne, weight fluctuations, and facial hair, but these are typically easily treated by adjusting dosages. During your consultation with Dr. Hanz, he will examine your medical history and current health to ensure that bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is right for you.

Does getting BioTe hurt?

No, most patients don’t find the pellet insertion painful. The treatment area will be numbed with a local anesthetic before Dr. Hanz begins to keep you comfortable.

How quickly will I see results with BHRT?

How long it takes to see results depend on a number of factors, including age, health, absorption levels, and hormone levels. Some patients may begin to notice results within 3 – 7 days; for others, it may take up to 3 – 4 weeks.

How long does BioTe last?

How long a BioTe pellet will last varies for each patient, but typically women can expect their treatment to last about four months, and men can expect it to last about five months.

What is Lipo AI?

LipoAI's  involves identifying fat without immediate extraction, allowing Dr. Hanz to precisely target and dissolve fat cells while preserving surrounding tissues. This targeted approach not only minimizes bodily trauma and reduces the risk of vascular or nerve damage but also promotes skin tightening for smoother, more natural-looking results. By liquefying fat prior to removal, the procedure ensures a gentler extraction process, contributing to enhanced patient comfort and expedited post-operative recovery.

What is Renuvion®?

The first major advancement in decades of skin treatments for the face, Renuvion is a new and effective nonsurgical option for smoothing and contracting the skin — all in one procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if Lipo ai is right for me?

The first major advancement in decades of skin treatments for the face, Renuvion is a new and effective nonsurgical option for smoothing and contracting the skin — all in one procedure. Renuvion is an amazing non-surgical solution for reducing wrinkles and rhytides, but it’s not for everybody. This procedure requires recovery time and is not recommended for patients with darker skin tones but is limited to patients with Fitzpatrick skin types I, II, or III. Dr. Kevin Hanz will talk to you about your goals, your lifestyle, and whether Renuvion is the right option for you.

What can Lipo ai Treat?

LipoAI can treat various areas of the body where excess fat accumulates, including the abdomen, thighs, arms, back, buttocks, and submental region (under the chin). It's effective for both large and small areas, providing precise contouring and skin tightening.

    How does Lipo ai work?

    Lipo AI skin tightening treatment works by using laser energy to target the deeper layers of the skin. The laser heats the collagen fibers in the skin, stimulating collagen production and promoting tighter, smoother skin over time.

    Why is this treatment good for my skin?

    This treatment is beneficial for the skin because it stimulates collagen production, which helps to improve skin elasticity and firmness. It also promotes cell renewal, resulting in a more youthful and radiant appearance.

    Will I be asleep during the Lipo AI treatment?

    Lipo AI does not require a patient to be asleep or undergo general anesthesia. The procedure may be completed with a patient awake. Patients are given a light sedative to feel more relaxed and insure a pleasant, comfortable experience. Many of our patients prefer to avoid general anesthesia and really appreciate the awake approach. Having said that, we do offer the possibility of full anesthesia for those patients that may prefer to be more asleep during the procedure.

    What should I expect during the recovery time?

    During the recovery period, patients may experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the treated areas. The recovery typically involves significantly less down time than other forms of Liposuction. Symptoms are usually mild and most patients can resume normal activities within a few days to a week after the procedure. Patients may appreciate initial results in as little as 2-3 days, though maximum benefits may take several weeks to months to become fully apparent as the body heals and remodels.
