Hormone Therapy in Peoria, Illinois

At The Beauty Lounge of Peoria in Peoria, IL, we offer hormone therapy, also known as HRT, to restore balance to the body by supplementing bioidentical hormones to resolve a deficiency. We offer hormone therapy for men and hormone therapy for women to reduce both minor and major symptoms resulting from a hormone imbalance. A BHRT treatment plan will balance the body and, in doing so, promote improved physical, mental, and emotional health.

What Is Hormone Therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy is a treatment that uses bioidentical hormones to supplement hormones the body is missing and restore balance to the hormonal system. At The Beauty Lounge of Peoria, we use Biote pellet therapy for both men and women. Pellet therapy has many benefits and requires no work on the patient’s part. It’s simple, seamless, and effective and will balance the hormones to alleviate symptoms and improve quality of life.

What Are the Benefits of HRT?

Patients who begin an HRT treatment plan will notice improvements in their symptoms within the first several weeks of undergoing pellet therapy. Each hormone pellet contains the exact amount of hormones necessary to balance estradiol, testosterone, and thyroid hormones. Some of the treatment benefits include the following:

  • Safe, customizable, and adjustable treatment plans
  • Improved body composition
  • Healthy weight loss
  • Balanced hormone levels
  • Quick and virtually painless treatments
  • Long-lasting results
  • Alleviation of negative symptoms
  • Increased energy levels
  • Improvements in mental, physical, emotional, and sexual health

Pellet Therapy: The Biote Method

We design BHRT treatment plans with Biote pellets to resolve both major and minor hormone deficiencies. These hormone pellets are smaller than a grain of rice and are inserted into the subcutaneous tissue, typically on the hip or buttocks.

These pellets are so effective because they address the root cause of an imbalance, not just the symptoms. They contain the exact amount of hormones each patient needs to maintain balanced hormone levels for three to six months.

How It Works

During the treatment, we make a tiny incision in the skin, insert the pellet into the subcutaneous tissue, and secure it with a suture. Some patients notice benefits within the first few weeks, while others notice the best results after a few treatments.

Over time, these hormone pellets consistently release hormones directly into the bloodstream as the body uses them. They will slowly and gradually balance the system without causing severe hormone surges or crashes. Patients will notice improvements in physical and mental health after beginning treatment.

Hormone Therapy for Men

Men who suffer from hormone deficiencies typically have inadequate testosterone levels. These symptoms typically become noticeable during andropause, a life stage similar to menopause in which testosterone levels naturally decline. Men in this life stage often experience low libido, decreased sexual function, anxiety, mood changes, sleep disturbances, brain fog, weight gain, decreased sexual performance, inability to maintain muscle mass, elevated blood sugar levels, decreased bone density, abnormal heart conditions, and low energy levels.

While andropause is one of the most common reasons to begin hormone therapy for men, hormone deficiencies also affect men in other life stages, and testosterone deficiencies can result from diet, high stress levels, a sedentary lifestyle, environmental factors, and genetic predisposition. A customized hormone therapy for men treatment plan will safely resolve these symptoms by supplementing the testosterone hormones.

Hormone Therapy For Women

Women also suffer from hormone deficiencies, and these imbalances typically are the most noticeable during menopause. During this life stage, the hormones begin to decline, but hormone therapy for women will resolve the symptoms women experience during the three stages of menopause: perimenopause, menopause, and post-menopause.

We also offer hormone therapy for women to meet the needs of women outside of these age ranges suffering from a hormone deficiency as a result of other factors, including the side effects of medications, genetic predisposition, stress, lifestyle factors, and postpartum imbalances.

Frequently Asked Questions

Hormone imbalances in women can result from too many or too few hormones in the bloodstream. This imbalance often results in noticeable symptoms that often affect daily life. The most common symptoms affect the reproductive, emotional, and physiological spheres.


For many women, weight gain is the most noticeable symptom that results from excessive estrogen production. Hormone imbalances that affect the reproductive system often cause severe PMS symptoms, low libido, and pain during intercourse. Some of the most common emotional-related symptoms of an imbalance include mood changes, anxiety, chronic fatigue, feeling like you’re on an emotional roller coaster, trouble concentrating, depression, and irritability.

Biote pellets will reduce the symptoms of a hormonal imbalance by giving each woman the exact amount of hormones necessary to correct the deficiency. When your body gets a daily, consistent dose of hormones, you’ll no longer be consumed by the negative symptoms impacting physical, emotional, and mental health. The treatment also has anti-aging benefits and will improve skin health, body composition, sex drive, and energy levels.

The best candidates for hormone replacement therapy are patients with noticeable symptoms of a hormone imbalance. Patients looking for a simple solution that will safely balance hormone levels without requiring that they self-administer hormones will benefit from this form of HRT.


We perform lab work during the consultation process to identify each patient’s deficiency and design the right HRT treatment protocol to adequately resolve that deficiency. We also perform additional bloodwork during follow-up treatments after you’ve begun the BHRT treatment plan to ensure your dose gives you the hormones your body needs and maintains hormone balance.
