Bio-identical hormone replacement at Synergy
Age Management Therapy is a revolutionary new type of preventative medicine that focuses on optimizing your body’s hormone levels to prevent and treat age-related symptoms and increase your quality of life. However, these treatments are not just for older people. Anyone can benefit from the hormone therapy services offered at Synergy Wellness Center in Bakersfield, CA, even those in their 30s.
No matter what age you are, many of the symptoms and diseases of aging can be improved and prevented by restoring a proper hormone balance. Although Age Management Therapy does not prevent the aging process itself, it improves your quality of life by treating the signs and symptoms of aging and by lowering the risk of age-related illnesses including cancer and heart disease.

For patients in and nearby Bakersfield, CA, Synergy Wellness Center offers cutting-edge bio-identical hormone optimization therapy for men and women of all ages. This includes hormone pellet implants, which are inserted under the skin to release a steady dose of hormones over several months – allowing you to reap the benefits of their anti-aging properties without worrying about daily maintenance.
Hormones like estrogen, testosterone, progesterone and more are essential to our health and well-being. They act as messengers in our body and exert many helpful biochemical effects that regulate a number of different bodily systems. As we get older, our hormone production reduces dramatically. Even those in their 30s and 40s begin to feel the effects of lowered hormone levels and hormone imbalance.
We invite you to visit Synergy Wellness Center to experience the positive effects that bio-identical hormone therapy could bring to your overall health.
Bio-identical hormone therapy is an age management treatment that allows both young and old to address common signs of aging. Traditionally, most hormone therapies have used synthetic hormones that are artificially formulated. However, these are different from the human hormones our body produces naturally. Bio-identical hormones, however, mimic our own, naturally produced hormones. They are plant-based and all-natural, created to match the molecular structure of our body’s hormones. This allows the body to treat and process them the same way it would its own natural hormones.
The advantage of bio-identical hormone therapy is not just the rejuvenating effects it produces, but also the fact that it tends to be far safer. Your body can metabolize these hormones as it would its own, thus minimizing side effects.
Whether you’re a young professional in a stressful work environment or you’re recently retired and ready to enjoy your golden years, hormone replacement therapy is an effective treatment that addresses a variety of symptoms associated with hormone imbalances. But what are the signs that indicate that you could benefit from hormone replacement therapy? Some of the symptoms of hormone imbalance include:
There are many reasons you may need hormone therapy. Women struggling with the effects of menopause, men seeking renewed vigor or younger adults who wish to incorporate the healthful effects of hormone therapy into their health regimen can all benefit from regaining a proper hormone balance. When you schedule a consultation at Synergy Wellness Center, we’ll help you find a hormone regimen that’s right for you.
When hormone levels decline, so do your physical and mental capabilities. Hormone therapy allows you to restore these levels and bring balance back to your body. Whether you’re 30 or 60, you’ll recognize the positive impact that re-establishing your hormones to their youthful levels will bring. Not only does hormone therapy provide renewed energy and youthful zeal, but it can also optimize your mind.
Imagine being able to improve or even reverse many of the symptoms and signs associated with aging. Hormone therapy helps you regain your youthful resilience and protects you against the stressors of daily life.
Depending on which bio-identical hormone therapy you utilize, you can expect many different positive benefits. Women who use these treatments find that it helps reduce the recurrence of hot flashes, aids in memory, increases sex drive, helps them sleep and fights mood swings. Men use bio-identical hormone therapy to improve their sexual performance, feel more motivated, build muscle mass and control weight. However, each individualized hormone therapy has additional benefits as well. For a thorough review of these benefits, schedule a consultation with our experts.
At Synergy Wellness, we offer estrogen, testosterone and other bio-identical hormone pellet implant treatments to patients seeking revitalization. Hormone pellets are created using all-natural ingredients and include the bio-identical hormones your body can no longer produce. They’re no bigger than a grain of rice and are inserted just under the skin to release a stable dose of hormones over several months.
Unlike creams, pills, patches or injections, hormone pellet implants work naturally with your body. Once the pellet is inserted, patients can experience the benefits of bio-identical hormone therapy for up to six months. Plus, because the pellet is implanted under the skin, the body can control the release of hormones. Other treatments require consistent monitoring, and they can even have a roller coaster effect if the improper dosage is given. But hormone pellet treatments tend to be safer, effective and work in partnership with your body.
Bio-identical hormone pellets can be implanted in a relatively painless procedure performed at our office in a matter of minutes. Before insertion, we clean and numb the skin using a local anesthetic. Generally, the pellets are inserted in the lower abdomen or hip area or in the buttocks. A small incision is made, and the pellets are implanted just under the skin. Most often, no stitches are required once the procedure is complete. The wound will be dressed using surgical gauze and a piece of tape.
After the procedure, you may experience slight discomfort or bruising at the insertion site. Other than that, however, side effects associated with bio-identical hormone therapy using pellets are very mild and easily managed.
How long the effects of the pellets last depend on your body’s individual needs. Absorption rates vary from person to person. Most people find that the results of pellet hormone therapy can last as long as six months.
No matter what age you are, if you are experiencing any of the adverse symptoms mentioned above, then bio-identical hormone replacement therapy may be for you.
