What is Testosterone Replacement Therapy?
Testosterone is most often associated with male sexual performance, but the hormone plays other roles in the body that affect your overall health. In addition to a man’s sex drive, testosterone regulates:
- Production of red blood cells
- Bone mass
- Muscle strength and size
- Distribution of fat
Based on the role of testosterone for men, you can understand the potential changes that may occur when testosterone levels are low. Aspire Medical Spa offers testosterone replacement therapy to bring your levels back into the normal range.
What are the Benefits of Testosterone Replacement Therapy?
Men naturally produce less testosterone as they age, and this brings about many symptoms some people consider normal, such as reduced stamina, reduced muscle development, development of fat deposits and increased risk for fractures and musculo-skeletal issues. By supplementing your natural testosterone levels, you improve your health and quality of life.
How Does Testosterone Replacement Therapy Work?
Aspire Medical Spa offers several options for testosterone replacement therapy.
- Injections into the muscles
- Pellets implanted in the skin
- Trans-dermal patches
- Topical gels
The advantage of these delivery methods is the testosterone goes directly into your bloodstream, so dosing may be lower than oral medications that pass through the liver.
Am I a Good Candidate for Testosterone Replacement Therapy?
The symptoms of low testosterone are also associated with other medical conditions, so you should have a thorough physical examination that includes blood work to rule out any other possibilities. If you do have low testosterone, treatment helps with:
- Depression and irritability
- Poor sex drive
- Muscle loss
- Difficulty focusing and thinking clearly
- Difficulty achieving and maintaining an erection
- Hair loss on the face and body
- Low energy and fatigue
What Should I Expect from Testosterone Replacement Therapy?
Your body will need time to adjust to the higher levels of testosterone in the bloodstream. This may produce some new or worsening symptoms on a short-term basis. We advise you to continue using the recommended testosterone replacement therapy. Your body should adjust within four to six weeks.
How Much Does Testosterone Replacement Therapy Cost in Boston, MA?
