Bio-identical hormone replacement at Synergy
Testosterone has naturally been defined as a classic male sex hormone, but no woman should be without it, either. The overall decline of physical and emotional well-being in aging adults is partially due to slowly decreasing testosterone levels.
At optimal levels, testosterone increases muscle strength and lean body mass, bone formation and bone health, enhances energy and sex drive and decreases blood pressure. It has also shown to improve memory and cognitive functions, as estrogen does in women. Testosterone also has a preventive effect through its protection against cardiovascular disease in both men and women.
If you feel your energy levels have been dropping, and other negative side effects associated with aging, you may need testosterone hormone therapy.
As we age, there is a high chance that both men and women will experience a testosterone imbalance. Although many mistakenly believe that this issue only affects men, this is not the case. When left untreated, a testosterone imbalance (in both genders) can have a variety of impacts on your overall health. Testosterone pellet implants are a form of hormone therapy that treats decreasing levels of the testosterone. This innovative, quick-to-administer treatment is available to patients at Synergy Wellness Center.

Many of the body’s key functions are regulated by testosterone. Although men produce more of this hormone than women, it’s vital to both sexes. As we age, the drop in testosterone production leads to a number of symptoms. Not only does it impact sex drive, but individuals experience mood swings, fatigue, weight gain and more. Plus, low testosterone puts men at risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease, prostate cancer and other severe conditions.
Although some fear that testosterone hormone therapy will lead to increased masculinity or aggression, this is not true. This therapy is crucial because it helps patients manage some of the natural side effects of aging.
Testosterone pellets are bio-identical hormones specifically formulated to return both men and women to their normal hormonally-balanced physiology. Unlike synthetic hormones, pellet therapy utilizes natural substances that are biochemically the same as the hormones our body naturally produces. Therefore, the human body can more easily metabolize this form of hormone therapy, thus minimizing side effects.
Although traditionally considered a hormone therapy exclusively for men, both men and women should consider testosterone pellet implants. Plus, this treatment is not just for those over the age of 60. All ages can benefit from testosterone pellets and their age-management properties.
The testosterone implant procedure is performed in-office in a matter of minutes. Generally, we insert the testosterone pellets in the hip area. First, we clean the skin, then numb it with a local anesthetic. After making a small incision, the pellets are implanted just under the skin. Once finished a stitch may be required, in addition to a dressing held in place by a piece of tape.
Both men and women experience a huge variety of benefits of testosterone pellet therapy, including:
Testosterone pellets are different from other delivery methods, because since they release their dosage slowly over a few months, they help ensure there are no roller-coaster side effects. Although some patients start feeling the positive side effects of testosterone pellets within the first 48 hours, most patients will begin feeling the effects a week or two after the procedure.
