Testosterone Replacement Therapy, or TRT, is a treatment that administers testosterone to men who have low levels of testosterone. Restoring balance to your hormones can help regulate a wide range of functions in your body, improving sexual health, bone density, muscle mass, energy levels, and more.
If you are experiencing symptoms that you think may be related to low testosterone levels, we offer testosterone replacement therapy at BeYOUtiful Anti-Aging Studio in Houston, TX. We can assess your hormone levels, develop a treatment plan, and help restore the balance in your body.
Even if your hormone levels are only slightly out of balance, it can cause a wide range of symptoms. Low testosterone can make it more difficult to get through your day, can impact your relationships, and can even impact your future health. Testosterone replacement therapy is an individualized treatment that will give your body the amount of testosterone that it needs to begin functioning properly again.
At our studio, we use bioidentical hormones. These hormones are produced from natural sources such as yams or soy. They are chemically identical to those that are naturally produced by your body. We administer the testosterone via customized hormone pellets which are placed into the skin. These pellets are time-released and can work for several months before needing to be replaced.
Many men with low testosterone notice symptoms with their mood. Low T can cause depression, anxiety, irritability, and more. Testosterone treatments can help to regulate your mood and make you feel more like yourself.
Men who need hormone replacement therapy often notice changes in their muscle mass and strength. Testosterone is needed to help grow muscles and can also improve the health and density of the bones.
Testosterone is crucial for sexual function in men. Men with low testosterone may experience a decrease in libido as well as symptoms of erectile dysfunction. Restoring testosterone levels through testosterone replacement therapy can help restore sexual function for men of any age.
Testosterone plays a role both in helping individuals have high-quality sleep and having sustained energy and vitality throughout the day. If you are feeling like you don’t have enough energy to last until bedtime, it may be a result of Low T.
Low testosterone levels have been linked to an increased risk of several chronic diseases such as osteoporosis, type 2 diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. TRT treatments may help you to minimize your risk of these diseases and maintain your health even as you mature.
There are a few different potential causes for low T in men. The most common is the natural decline of testosterone levels during the aging process. Testosterone levels can begin to decline after a man enters his 30s. Other factors such as illness, injury, or medication can cause testosterone levels to be lower than normal. At our studio, we can help determine the cause of your low testosterone levels while also providing a TRT plan that works for you.
TRT is a hormone replacement therapy that is suitable for men who have low testosterone levels. It may be right for individuals who are experiencing changes in their mood, sex drive, or overall well-being, or for anyone wishing to have higher testosterone levels.
The effects of testosterone replacement therapy may be different for everyone. Some men experience an increase in their sexual interest and an improvement in other symptoms after several weeks. Other improvements may take longer. You will be able to come in for a follow-up to discuss your results.
Consultation and testing are both vital for determining the right treatment. When you arrive, we will talk to you to see if testosterone treatment may be right for you. We will test your current hormone levels to find the proper dosage. Then we will plan your first TRT pellet insertion appointment.
When you come in for your TRT treatment, we will clean an area on the hip or buttock and inject a local anesthetic. Once the area is completely numb, we will make a tiny incision that will allow us to insert a trocar. The Trocar is a device that allows us to push the small testosterone pellet into the fat layer of your hip or buttock. Once the pellet is in place, we close up the incision with Steri-Strips, which will only need to be in place for several days.
Once the pellets have had time to take effect, we will have a follow-up appointment with you to discuss the results of your treatment and to assess any changes that need to be made for you to receive the full benefits of your treatment. Because the pellets release steady amounts of hormones, you should be able to receive consistent levels of testosterone over the next three to six months. Then we can insert another pellet once the first has completely dissolved.
