When balanced, our body is happy and healthy. However, far too many of us find that our busy lives and hectic schedules leave our bodies out of balance. Always a believer in harmony, Dr. Dugan is happy to offer her patients a unique way to achieve symbiosis between their bodies and their lives with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for hormone optimization.

What Are Hormones?

Hormones act as messengers throughout our bodies, which allow communication from one area of the body to another. They perform many functions and play an integral role in our everyday health. When our hormones are out of balance, it is likely that we experience a number of symptoms such as fatigue, decreased libido, and decrease in vitality. A hormone imbalance can affect everything from our psychological well-being, to our cognitive abilities, and even our energy levels. Dr. Dugan uses a unique form of hormone replacement therapy that relies on naturally-occurring sources of estrogen and testosterone to create what is known as “bioidentical” hormones. Bioidentical hormones are a similar chemical structure to the body’s natural hormones to combat the changes associated with decreased hormone levels. By using bioidentical estradiol and/or testosterone hormones that are recognized as “self” by your body, the side effects are limited. With these pellets, the patient’s hormone levels become balanced, stabilized, and optimized.

How will Bioidentical Hormones help me?


Hormone imbalance in women may present with fatigue, night sweats, hot flashes, decreased sex drive, weight gain, decreased bone mass, trouble sleeping, irritability, anxiousness, mood swings, low energy, brain fog, and pain during intercourse. Estradiol and testosterone bioidentical hormone pellets will get your body back in harmony and on your journey to lifelong wellness.


Hormonal imbalance in men may include low sex drive, fatigue, loss of muscle mass, increased body fat (especially in the waist area), decreased bone mass, mood changes, low energy, irritability, brain fog, elevated blood sugar, stress, anxiousness, high cholesterol. Testosterone bioidentical hormone pellets will get your body back in harmony and on your journey to lifelong wellness. Many of Dr. Dugan’s patients have found a sense of balance thanks to bioidentical hormone optimization. It has proved truly life changing for many men and women.

Am I a Candidate for Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

The first step is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Dugan at Dugan Aesthetics & Wellness Center. Before starting any treatment plan, Dr. Dugan will review your medical history and test your current hormone levels to see if you are a candidate for bioidentical hormone pellet therapy. If you are a candidate, Dr. Dugan will then schedule a follow up appointment to talk with you about your individualized bioidentical hormone plan and the impact hormone optimization will have on your well-being. You will continue with your personalized Bioidentical Hormone treatment plan where women will receive the pellets every 3-4 months and men will receive them every 4-5 months.
