Bio-identical hormone replacement at Synergy

TESTOSTERONE – THE FEEL-GOOD HORMONE

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.

Testosterone Hormone Therapy in Bakersfield, CA

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.

Why Is Testosterone Important for Age Management?

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.

What Are Testosterone Pellets?

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.

Who Should Consider Testosterone Pellets?

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.

What Is the Procedure?

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.

What Are the Benefits of Testosterone Pellets?

Both men and women experience a huge variety of benefits of testosterone pellet therapy, including:

  • Feelings of well-being and energy
  • Increases in muscle mass and improved lean muscle mass
  • Improved exercise tolerance, including increased strength and endurance
  • Improved lipid profile, such as lower LDL and higher HDL
  • Increased bone density
  • Enhanced sexual desire and sexual performance
  • Protection from heart disease, hypertension, excess body fat and arthritis
  • Protection against the deterioration of muscles, ligaments, joints, tendons and bones
  • Prevention of osteoporosis and aging skin
  • Decreased risk of diabetes, insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome
  • Prevention and treatment of depression
  • Improved memory and decreased risk of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia
  • Reduced plaque build-up in the arteries
  • Beneficial skin effects including increased collagen and skin thickness, improved texture, decrease in wrinkles, decrease in fat deposition and cellulite

How Long Does It Take for Hormone Pellets to Take Effect?

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.
