Hormone Optimization Therapy in Murrieta, CA


As part of the natural aging process or because of genetics, our hormone levels can start to change and become irregular. Unfortunately, imbalanced hormones often occur in women who are pre- or post-menopausal, which can cause uncomfortable side effects. To help you live more comfortably, Dr. Lily Phillips is proud to offer Hormone Optimization therapy to her Murrieta, CA community. Depending on your needs, we will assess your condition and develop a tailored treatment plan that works best for you. Please call to schedule an appointment at Ageless Grace, and learn more about this innovative procedure.


Hormone Optimization therapy administered at Ageless Grace is a safe and reliable platform for balancing hormones, improving your mood, and reinvigorating your libido, among other advantages. Benefits of this treatment at our Murrieta, CA facility include:

  • Enhancing sex drive and pleasure

  • Boosting energy levels

  • Increasing mental focus and acuity

  • Reducing symptoms of menopause

  • Helps to burn fat and build healthy lean muscle

  • Better sleep

  • Improving mood

  • Decreasing mood swings

  • Slowing or reversing hair loss


Hormone Optimization therapy is often provided to assist people who are dealing with decreased or unbalanced hormone levels. Often, these issues are prevalent in people who are older than 40 and are beginning to notice decreases in their energy levels, sexual performance, and mental clarity in addition to weight gain or loss of muscle mass. These signs could additionally be seen in women under age 50 who have had a total hysterectomy. A hormone imbalance may cause several health concerns, like erectile dysfunction, thyroid disease, elevated cholesterol levels, nighttime sweats, difficulty sleeping, and issues with memory. People with a history or family history of heart disease, stroke, blood clots, and certain reproductive cancers may not be candidates for hormone replacement therapy. During your consultation, Dr. Phillips will review your medical history and current health to ensure you are a great candidate.

To determine if this procedure is right for you, we will complete a series of blood panels to assess your hormone levels. Dr. Phillips will also listen to your questions, cosmetic goals, and medical history. All of these factors will help her create the best treatment plan for you. This procedure can help both men and women who experience:

  • Decreased sexual libido

  • Decreased energy levels

  • Diminished mental clarity

  • Reduced muscle mass

  • Increased weight gain

For women, it can also help with vaginal dryness, PMS symptoms, hot flashes, and night sweats. After creating your tailored treatment plan, we will insert a pellet near the upper buttocks. This process should not cause discomfort. You can resume your daily activities, but you should avoid strenuous activity, swimming, and hot tubs for about a week. Because the body needs time to adjust to your newly balanced hormone levels, you should begin to experience the benefits in 3 – 6 months. We customize each patient’s treatment plan so Dr. Phillips will discuss when to schedule the next follow-up appointment.


Is Hormone Optimization therapy safe?

Hormone replacement therapy can be safe and effective for the majority of patients. However, people with a medical history of blood clots, stroke, certain cancers, and other factors may not be a candidate. During your consultation with Dr. Phillips, she will review your medical history and current condition to ensure the BioTE hormone therapy is right for you.

How quickly do you see results with Hormone Optimization therapy?

Results are unique to each patient, but typically many patients can begin to see results within about 3 – 4 weeks. Maximum benefits are usually experienced in about 3 – 6 months.

What are some benefits of bioidentical Hormone Optimization therapy?

Bioidentical hormone therapy's greatest benefit is to restore your hormonal balance. When your hormones are optimized, they can have a positive effect on your entire body, improving energy levels, mental focus, weight loss, sexual drive and performance, sleep, mood, skin health, appearance, and more.

Does HO cause side effects?

As their body adjusts to the hormone replacement therapy, some patients may experience:

  • Acne

  • Fatigue

  • Increased facial hair

  • Mood swings

  • Weight gain

  • Headaches

Typically these effects are temporary, and Dr. Phillips monitors your progress so that modifications can be made if necessary.

Does insurance cover bioidentical Hormone Optimization therapy?

Because BHRT is still awaiting approval by the FDA, many insurance providers do not cover treatment costs. Some may reimburse you if you pay out of pocket. At Ageless Grace, our staff can work with your insurance provider to determine coverage and any out-of-pocket expenses.


Caused by age, genetics, or lifestyle changes, hormone imbalances can impact both men and women. If you experience uncomfortable symptoms, please call our office in Murrieta, CA to learn more about Hormone Optimization therapy. During your complimentary in-person or virtual consultation, Dr. Phillips will develop a personalized treatment plan and discuss the cost of BioTE. We look forward to helping you live a more comfortable life!
