Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Near Me | Chicago, IL

Restore Your Health with Bioidentical Hormone Therapy in Chicago

What is bioidentical
hormone replacement
therapy?

As you age, your body undergoes inevitable changes as a result of a decrease in your hormone levels. These changes affect your entire body from your brain to your bones. Low levels of your hormones can affect you mentally resulting in loss of mental focus and clarity, an inability to sleep well, anxiety, and/or depression.   Physically you can lose lean muscle mass, gain fat, and develop brittle bones.

*Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy and optimizing your hormones can help reverse these changes.

How does bioidentical hormone
replacement therapy work?

During your initial consultation and assessment, we determine your severity of symptoms as well as look at your vitamin and hormone deficiencies through a blood test.   Once all the information is gathered, we formulate a program individually constructed for you to get you feeling on top of your game.   This program often includes diet modification, exercise guidance and recommendations, medical weight loss therapy, vitamin replacement through supplements and/or injections, and finally bioidentical hormone replacement with pellets.

How is hormone
therapy different
at XSculpt?

We treat both men AND women of all ages - many centers only focus on testosterone replacement for elderly men. We provide a comprehensive health service by offering medical therapy through our integrative medicine division to help treat any medical conditions that may be picked up at your initial health and hormone laboratory evaluation, so you don’t have to coordinate with another health provider.

We also have a network of personal trainers and nutritionists that can provide guidance on diet and exercise so you can experience the maximum benefits for a healthy and happy lifestyle.  Finally, if desired, we offer non-invasive and surgical body contouring procedures for people who are interested in further enhancing their results.

  • I am a middle age man that has suffered low testosterone for a long time now. I tried most everything out there including giving myself Injections every 2 weeks at home which only seemed to last for 3 days max. I then heard about Xsculpt and started my research then made an appointment to see Dr Adajar. The appointment was extremely enlightening for me and a huge eye opener.  Dr Adajar answered all my questions and also educated me on how Hormones play such a big part in my health. I was absolutely amazed with Dr Adajar so I set up the appointment to receive the treatment. After the treatment it took me about 2 days to start feeling a difference and now I feel the best I have felt in many years. This treatment is everything  Dr Adajar had explained to me with no ups or downs, I have a steady awesome feeling and outlook everyday. This is absolutely amazing and I urge any Man or Woman to see Dr Adajar because Xsculpt  will change your life like you never thought. I am so thankful I found  Xsculpt because my life is 100% better and the future has an excellent outcome for me now. Thank you Dr Adajar and your Team

  • I'm a 57 year old woman who found myself feeling older and crabbier with each passing month.  I noticed it, my family noticed it, and my general practitioner noticed it.  Mr doctor referred me to Dr. Adajar. From my blood results he was able to tell that my estrogen, testosterone, thyroid and several vitamin levels were outside the normal range.  Through Bioidentical pellet treatment and a suggestion of supplements I am now feeling better than I have in years.  I'm feeling younger, stronger and mentally sharper.  For the cost of what I was paying for Botox I have a happier and healthier body, along with a happy and healthier marriage!  Dr. Adajar explains everything very well and is very patient with all my questions.  You don't have to desire to be a bodybuilder for this therapy to be effective, I'm sure most women my age could benefit greatly from it.  Dr. Adajar can get you back on track and you owe it to yourself to try!

  • Dr. Mark Adajar is by far the most amazing person I have met. I came to him with some concerns with my weight loss and energy issues. After getting my blood work drawn we were able to figure out that I had a hormonal Imbalance. I was tired all the time, demotivated, lost my menstrual cycle, and was over all depressed. We sat down and figured out a game plan and decided to try the "pellets" aka hormone replacement therapy. After several months of being on the HRT I already started noticing changes and saw major improvements. I was back to normal and living my life like I was before. No review nor words can describe how amazing I feel and how thankful I am that I FEEL amazing again. I highly recommend Xscult and Dr. Adajar for anyone who has similar problems. Thanks again doc and I am forever grateful.

  • My experience with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy has been amazing so far. I came across this when talking with my surgeon, Dr. Mark Adajar, who had actually tried this himself and saw amazing results. Our goals were a little different. He was looking to build muscle and cut fat- and wow did he!! He looks amazing. My goal was more energy, cut weight a little while maintaining my figure, better sleep, maintaining my brain- a sharp mind is important to me #undercovernerd, and an amazing surprise was how much it helped with my anxiety! Looking and feeling young is always a bonus-- I'm a big believer in prevention: start now appreciate the results later. The added bonus like mentioned was the results I saw regarding my anxiety. By optimizing my hormones it somehow regulated my anxiety- no need for any pills! To me this was amazing. I was not getting edgy while waiting in lines anymore. I was feeling happier and even more productive than I normally am. I also was not having the triggers that occur when driving sometimes that make me a little anxious on longer drives. There are so many benefits to this therapy. I will include a pic below. I encourage anyone who is interested to go to their website and research for yourself. This is the way medicine should be-- preventative, not waiting for problems occur like heart attacks etc.. then trying to "fix" the problem later. I strongly recommend prevention and I'm happy I discussed XSculpt with my surgeon and gave this a try- it's amazing! Talk to Michelle or Dr. Adajar and they can explain it all to you. It's so much to look forward to- looking and feeling like yourself again, to me, is priceless!

  • Xsculpt has truly changed my life! I struggled with constant exhaustion, inability to lose weight, anxiety, terrible adhd, generally feeling down, weakness, and many more negative symptoms on a daily basis. Many of which were residual symptoms following Lyme disease. After starting my treatments with xsculpt I no longer feel ANY symptoms of Lyme disease! Furthermore I'm already taking half the medication doses I used to for adhd and anxiety and feeling better than ever! I've lost weight, gained muscle, noticed my nails beginning to grow long and strong for the first time in my life, and feel overall better than ever along with the physical changes! I can't reccomend xsculpt enough!!! Thank you xsculpt for truly changing my life!

  • Anyone who has been battling the "Dad Bod" I highly recommend Xsculpt and all the services they have to offer!  I'm 36 years old, happily married and father of 2 (5yrold and 2yrold = no time), Filipino (so I love Food), and live in Chicago (so I love lots of food.)  Between work and family life the busier I got the bigger my belly got - all 210 lbs of it!  I've  done cross fit, orange theory, boxing, basketball, and biking.  I've done cleanses, whole30, juicing, and cutting whatever.  All have led to temporary gains on the scale and, even more frustrating, longer term gains on my waist line and shirt size. Finally!!! after consulting with Dr. Adajar,  whofound that my testosterone levels were really low for my age group, I got my hormones optimized.  He hooked up with their awesome trainer, Johnny James (Johnny James Fitness), who got my diet in check and my workouts to actually work!  I dropped 20lbs in the first 2 months and, as of now, I am down to 181lbs! Xsculpt gave me the physical boost I desperately needed and, more importantly, the confidence boost to reset my health on a better track.  Again, I highly recommend for all the "dad bods"out there or for anyone who needs a serious reboot for your mind and body.

    What are Bioidentical Hormones?

Bio-identical hormones are chemically and molecularly the same as the hormones that your body naturally produces. Bioidentical hormones differ from other types of hormone therapy as which may be synthetic in nature, meaning they often contain chemicals foreign to your physiology.


  • 3

    Why are bioidentical hormones better for you?

Since Bioidentical hormones are identical to the hormones that your own body produces, you will have a more natural and effective response to the treatment. Your side effects to the treatment will also be minimized because there are no synthetic components in bio identical hormones.


  • 4

    What bioidentical hormones are available?

In the United States, the bioidentical hormones that are available for therapy are testosterone, DHEA, estrogen, thyroid, and progesterone.


  • 5

    Is bioidentical hormone therapy safe?

It’s absolutely safe when under the supervision of qualified and trained physicians. Bioidentical hormone therapy is safer than their synthetic counterparts due to the identical composition with the hormones found naturally in your own body.


  • 6

    What are the benefits of bioidentical hormone therapy?

There are many benefits of bioidentical hormone therapy.  These benefits can be physical, mental, and medical in nature.  Some of the physical benefits that you can experience are weight loss, increased muscle mass, increased endurance, and more energy.  Mental benefits can include more focus, better productivity, feelings of vitality, increased libido, and improved sleep. Medical benefits include protection against heart attacks and stroke, lower chance of diabetes, decreased risk of developing dementia, and prevention of osteoporosis (brittle bones).  This is just a short list of the benefits you may experience by optimizing your hormones!


  • 7

    How are bioidentical hormones administered?

Bioidentical testosterone and estrogen are administered by specially made pellets that are inserted through a tiny incision made in the skin under local anesthesia.  These pellets slowly dissolve over the course of months to allow for a steady and consistent release of hormones into your circulation. The pellets we use at XSculpt are made by BioTe, one of the largest manufacturers of FDA approved ultra high-grade bioidentical hormone pellets worldwide.  Other bioidentical hormones such as progesterone, DHEA, and thyroid are given by an oral pill you take once a day.

    What are the advantages of bioidentical pellet therapy versus creams or injections?

Testosterone replacement therapy can be expensive, require daily consumption, and, in many cases, need to be carefully timed with their partner’s needs for normal sexual activities and pleasure. Bio-identical hormone pellet therapy is the only method of testosterone therapy that gives sustained and consistent testosterone levels throughout the day for three to six months (depending on if you are female or male) without any “roller coaster” blood levels of testosterone as seen with other therapies, which can result in mood and energy fluctuations for the patient.

The pellets are pure hormone that is not metabolized into byproducts by going through the liver, stomach or skin. This delivery system allows your body to use the right amount of hormone from the pellet as the blood flow surrounding the pellets picks up what is needed.

There is no need for daily patches or creams which can cause skin irritation, rashes, itching, and most importantly, dangers to family and friends due to inadvertent exposure during physical contact. There is also no need for frequent, painful, inconvenient testosterone injections which classically cause a fluctuation in T levels. There are oral tablets that fit in between your gums and upper lip, but these can be difficult to keep in place, bitter tasting, can cause irritation to the gums, and an incidence of an increase in liver cancer has been reported.

Because the pellets are pure hormone without fillers or synthetic ingredients, they completely dissolve. Testosterone pellets by the BioTe company (https://www.biotemedical.com/) are the highest quality pellets on the market, ensuring a consistent delivery of testosterone.  *At XSculpt the pellets are inserted by a health care practicioner who is directly trained and/or supervised by a surgeon. Surgeons are experts at incisions, implantations, and suturing thereby minimizing the uncommon complications of pellet extrusion, bleeding, bruising, and superficial incision infections.

    How long does it take to experience the benefits from bioidentical hormone therapy?

For bioidentical hormone pellet therapy, there is a “waiting time” before you experience some of the benefits because it takes time for your body to absorb the hormones.  This waiting period varies depending on which hormones are optimized but can range anywhere from 6 to 8 weeks. However, once the hormones reach their optimal levels, you will stay at that level until you stop therapy.


  • 10

    How long do I have to be on hormone therapy?

Bioidentical hormone therapy is a long term treatment regimen.  Unfortunately, there is no way currently known to “permanently” optimize your hormone levels.  Once you stop therapy, you will go return to your baseline hormone levels. The longer you are on hormone therapy, the greater the benefits you will experience.



  • 11

    Does bioidentical hormone therapy cause weight gain?

In the beginning of treatment, water weight gain can occur from the rapid change in hormone levels.  However the water weight usually goes away once your body adjusts to treatment and optimal hormone levels are reached at around 6 to 8 weeks. During this time, a low salt and carbohydrate diet with an increase in water intake can minimize this water weight gain if it comes to a point where the increase weight is uncomfortable.  In extreme cases (which is rare) a mild diuretic can be prescribed.
