Age healthier, live happier, and balance your hormones—naturally
Hormones are one of the body’s most important regulatory systems. These substances act as messengers, interacting with different cells and organs to keep your body balanced and functioning optimally. As the body ages, hormone production changes and can cause imbalances that result in significant effects and changes in the lives of men and women.
If you have been feeling fatigued, anxious, or moody, in addition to experiencing difficulty sleeping or losing weight, hot flashes or night sweats, decreased muscle strength, joint pain, reduced libido, or other symptoms that make you feel less like you, consider BioTE hormone therapy in The Woodlands. This hormone treatment has been found to help men and women feel younger, healthier, and happier than they have in years.

How it Works
At your appointment for BioTE hormone therapy in The Woodlands, we will begin by numbing the insertion site with a topical anesthetic. The most common insertion site is just under the skin in the fatty tissue of the upper buttocks. We make a small insertion and insert the pellet, which is about the size of a grain of rice.
We then cover the insertion site with steri-strips and a bandage. These pellets are made of bio-identical materials, meaning that they are substances already found in your body. The hormone pellets release estrogen and testosterone into the bloodstream, which are absorbed by the body as needed.
BioTE Hormone Therapy for Women
Balancing estrogen levels can help prevent loss of skin elasticity, bone shrinkage, moodiness, vaginal dryness, cognitive decline, and treat the symptoms of menopause. Testosterone therapy for women can provide increased libido, improved mental clarity, and enhanced muscle tone.
BioTE Hormone Therapy for Men
After age 30, men begin losing testosterone at a rate of 3-10% a year. This lack of testosterone leads to fatigue, loss of muscle strength, loss of libido, and difficulty maintaining an erection. We use testosterone pellet therapy to combat these symptoms to enhance your overall wellbeing.
Prior to your appointment for BioTE hormone therapy in The Woodlands, we ask that:
Please avoid taking all NSAIDs (e.g. aspirin, ibuprofen, acetaminophen, naproxen sodium, etc.) at least a week before the procedure. If you are taking any of these medications under direction of a physician, it is important to consult with them prior to discontinuing use.
After your BioTE pellet insertion, you should:
- Remove the bandage after 24 hours, leaving the steri-strips in place.
- Keep the insertion site completely dry for 24 hours. After that, showering is allowed but avoid soaking in tubs, pools, or baths for at least 3 days.
- Leave steri-strips on the insertion site for 5-7 days.
- Avoid strenuous exercise for 72 hours to reduce the chance of bruising, drainage, or infection or delayed healing.
- Use ice for any redness or swelling you experience.
- Avoid massage directly at the insertion site for 6 months.
JoAnn has treated me for several years. She is very precise and professional. I have complete confidence in JoAnn’s medical expertise and will be a patient for life!
I have been going to Angela at Medical Aesthetics and Laser for over a year. Angela is extremely competent and thorough in delivering excellent customer service. She is also knowledgeable in what treatments are needed to get the best results for a beautiful and younger appearance. I am very pleased with my results and highly recommend Angela at Medical Aesthetics and Laser. I would never go anywhere else.
I have been a client of Medical Aesthetics and Laser for the last few years. Prior to this, I tried several other clinics and doctor’s offices (including a couple of top plastic surgeons in Houston & The Woodlands) for Botox and facial treatments, but nothing can compare to results I have obtained with Allison and Kelli. I consider Allison to be both an expert and an artist in the way that she administers Botox and Dermal Fillers. She gives me a youthful appearance without causing me to look unnatural or contrived. I have used Kelli for laser resurfacing, chemical peels, and facials. Since adhering to her skin care regimen, my skin has never been as clear and healthy as it is now. I feel confident in recommending Medical Aesthetics and Laser to anyone who has the desire to improve their appearance, and gain confidence in the image that they project to others.
JoAnn is amazing! She is very knowledgeable and takes the time to explain each procedure in detail. She really listens to my goals and works with me to formulate a care plan that I am completely comfortable with. JoAnn genuinely cares and it shows!
My wife and I have been associated with JoAnn for over two years. JoAnn is very professional, caring, concerned, and is a great listener. She is just a great person all around. We both trust her completely with our treatments. She treats her patients as friends. We are proud to know and be associated with JoAnn. She is a great positive reflection of her employment with Dr. Reeves and his staff in this office.

Each patient’s hormone imbalance symptoms are unique and manifest differently, meaning each person’s journey with hormone therapy will be different. Your Medical Aesthetics & Laser specialist will create a treatment plan that is customized to your needs.
The pellets are completely bio-identical and are made of nothing but hormones. This means that they will be completely dissolved and absorbed in the fatty tissue of your skin, leaving no trace of them behind.
In the weeks and months after your BioTE hormone therapy treatments, you will begin to notice you feel more like yourself again. Menopause symptoms will seem less severe and noticeable, moods will be more level, sleep will be restored, sex drive and libido are generally improved, you should expect to have more energy—and so much more.
Treatment costs can vary depending on your unique needs. Your Medical Aesthetics & Laser specialist will provide you with the exact cost of your BioTE hormone therapy treatments up front in your initial consultation. We can also accept CareCredit to cover the cost of your treatment.
