Verified Patient Reviews
After 40, I noticed I hadn’t been feeling like my usual self. My family doctor had some blood work done, but told me everything was in “Normal” range. But I knew there was still something off. That’s when one of my friends recommended I go see Dr. Adajar–since he had done wonders for her. After discussing my symptoms with him, he ordered a complete blood panel. He emailed me a highly detailed explanation of my results. It turns out, I was deficient in quite a few areas. I have been on the Bioidentical pellet treatment and vitamin supplements for 6 months now, and I can truly say I have never felt better than I have in years! I have no more mood swings and higher energy. Thanks Dr. Adajar and staff!
I truly feel that Dr. Adajar’s work has had an incredibly beneficial impact on my life. I am a 47 year old female, and have known Dr. Adajar for seven years. He’s been my surgeon, and has recently introduced me to a new treatment that has changed my life. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is a simple, non-invasive procedure that has given me hormone balance through menopause, and restored my energy. I’ve lost weight,and have lessened the pain of my Fibromyalgia immensely. I highly recommend Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy to anyone looking to feel better, and want to look better as a result! 🙂
Dr. Marc Adajar and the team are simply amazing. Professional, knowledgeable, and polite! Do check out the website for your cosmetic desires 😉

BIOIDENTICAL HORMONE FAQ
What is Bioidentical Hormone Therapy?
Bioidentical hormone therapy, sometimes referred to as “natural hormone therapy” is the use of hormones to treat hormone imbalances or deficiencies. Bioidentical hormones are hormones that are administered to you by licensed practitioners who are trained in treating hormone imbalances.
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.
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.
What bioidentical hormones are available?
*In the United States, the bioidentical hormones that are available for therapy are testosterone, DHEA, estrogen, thyroid, and progesterone.
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.
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!
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.
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.
Does bioidentical hormone therapy cause weight gain?
