About Testosterone Replacement Therapy
As time passes, you may wake up one day and reminisce on the days of your youth. The transition from feeling youthful to actually feeling old may seem swift in your mind. In reality, the biological transition happens gradually. Testosterone Replacement Therapy is a regimen of specialized medications that increase hormone levels in the body.

Testosterone is a hormone produced in the body that begins to increase during puberty and begins to decline around age 30. Testosterone can affect bone density, muscle mass, mood, sex drive, and red blood cell development.
There are a plethora of benefits you can realize with Testosterone Replacement Therapy. Many patients who undergo Testosterone Replacement Therapy report feeling like a different person compared to how they felt when they initially sought treatment.

Testosterone Replacement Therapy Treatment
When you come in to AsandraMD for your Testosterone Replacement treatment, Dr. Asandra will review the results of your blood test with you. He will discuss the treatment and address any questions you may have. If you are a candidate for pellet therapy, Dr. Asandra will make a tiny incision near your hip and insert between 2-10 small pellets, each the size of a grain of rice, under your skin using an instrument called a trocar. The pellets will slowly release Bio-Identical Testosterone over the course of about 3 to 4 months. If you opt for intramuscular injections, Dr. Asandra will administer the testosterone treatment directly into the gluteal muscle. You will need to receive the injection every 10-14 days. You will have routine follow up appointments with Dr. Asandra to monitor your progress and testosterone levels. Your treatment plan will be adjusted, as needed, when you come in for your next appointment for pellet therapy or testosterone injection.
What is Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Dr. Asandra utilizes plant-based hormone replacement medication for his patients. The molecular structure of the medication is a replica of the testosterone produced in the body, making it bio-identical. Animal-derived and synthetic hormone replacement therapies cite a number of risks and side effects for patients. Whereas, bio-identical hormones pose less risk with fewer side effects. As each patient who comes into AsandraMD is unique, their experience with hormone replacement therapy will be just as individualized.
Dr. Asandra is the go-to, anti-aging specialist for men in Beverly Hills. He is able to help you not only feel your best with hormone replacement therapy, but also look your best with aesthetic procedures. After you begin Testosterone Replacement Therapy, you will feel more youthful. Augment your revitalization by rejuvenating your appearance!
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP)
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is the ultimate fountain of youth. Taking a sample of your own blood, Dr. Asandra will process it in a centrifuge. This separates the platelets. The platelet rich plasma is then injected just under the skin to not only diminish the fine lines and wrinkles on your face, but can encourage sexual enhancement, hair growth, and joint and muscle repair. Your face becomes smoother, hair thicker, manhood enhanced, and joints move more freely.
A man’s hairline can be an embarrassing sign of defeat when it comes to the passing of time. Hair restoration can help you look more youthful as thicker hair crowns your head. Dr. Asandra can help restore a thinning head of hair through Platelet Rich Plasma injections into the scalp or utilizing FDA-cleared laser technology. PRP and laser technology both stimulate the hair follicles to encourage hair growth in thinning areas.
Looking strong and lean can be a man’s claim to fame. Diet and exercise can do wonders for your health and physique. However, stubborn fat deposits can be a challenge after a while. The FDA has cleared truSculpt iD for reducing pinchable fat around the body. This non-invasive technology therapeutically heats the fat, while keeping your overlying skin comfortable. The treated fat cells die and are removed by the body, naturally. With truSculpt iD, your six-pack will make an appearance in no time!
If you want to not only feel the results of Testosterone Replacement, but also see your youthful demeanor shine through, call Dr. Asandra’s office at (424) 361-0808 to schedule your private anti-aging consultation.
