Testosterone Pellet Therapy

Testosterone pellet therapy, a form of Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT), is a unique approach to hormone replacement therapy that addresses imbalances in testosterone levels. As we age, we may experience a decline in testosterone production, leading to a variety of symptoms such as low libido, fatigue, weight gain, and even decreased bone density.

At AsandraMD, under the expert guidance of Dr. Christopher Asandra, a renowned specialist in anti-aging medicine, we offer testosterone pellet therapy as an effective solution for restoring hormonal balance. These tiny pellets, containing bio-identical hormones, are implanted under the skin and release a steady, consistent dose of testosterone over several months.

If you’re experiencing symptoms related to low testosterone, such as decreased sex drive or unexplained fatigue, don’t hesitate to reach out to AsandraMD. Call (424) 542-8881 or complete a simple form to schedule a consultation with Dr. Asandra at our convenient Beverly Hills or Newport Beach location. Take the first step towards reclaiming your vitality and enjoying life to the fullest with testosterone pellet therapy.

Before and After Photos

Signs of Low Testosterone

There are several signs of low testosterone, which include the following. (1)

  • Low sex drive: One of the primary indicators of low testosterone is a decrease in libido or interest in sexual activity. Men may notice a lack of desire or find it more challenging to become aroused.
  • Erectile dysfunction: Testosterone plays a crucial role in achieving and maintaining an erection. When levels are deficient, men may experience difficulty in achieving or sustaining an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse.
  • Fatigue and lack of energy: Feeling tired or lethargic despite adequate rest can be a sign of low testosterone levels. Men may struggle with decreased energy levels and find it challenging to engage in daily activities or exercise.
  • Decreased muscle mass and strength: Testosterone is essential for maintaining muscle mass and strength. When levels are low, men may notice a decline in muscle tone and find it difficult to build or retain muscle.
  • Increased body fat: Low testosterone can contribute to an increase in body fat, particularly in the abdominal area. Men may notice a change in body composition with a higher percentage of body fat and a decrease in lean muscle mass.
  • Mood swings and irritability: Hormonal imbalances, including low testosterone, can affect mood regulation. Men may experience mood swings, irritability, or feelings of sadness or depression.
  • Difficulty concentrating or remembering things: Declining cognitive function, such as difficulty concentrating or memory lapses, can be associated with low testosterone levels. Men may find it challenging to focus or retain information.
  • Hair loss or thinning: Testosterone contributes to hair growth and maintenance. Low levels may result in thinning hair or even hair loss, particularly on the scalp.
  • Reduced bone density: Testosterone is important for maintaining bone health and density. When levels are low, men may be at an increased risk of developing osteoporosis or experiencing fractures.
  • Sleep disturbances: Low testosterone can disrupt sleep patterns, leading to difficulties falling asleep or staying asleep throughout the night. This can contribute to feelings of fatigue and exacerbate other symptoms.

What Are Bioidentical Hormones?

Bioidentical hormones are a type of hormone replacement therapy that utilizes natural compounds and plant-based ingredients to replicate the hormones naturally produced by our bodies. (2) Unlike chemically altered versions of hormones, bioidentical hormones are derived from hormone precursors and pharmaceutical-grade ingredients.

These custom-made formulations can include a variety of hormones, such as estrogens, progesterone, and testosterone, tailored to meet each individual’s specific needs. By using bioidentical hormones, we aim to alleviate symptoms associated with hormone imbalances or deficiencies.

About Hormone Pellet Therapy

When it comes to hormones, balance is paramount. Hormone imbalances can occur due to various factors such as aging, stress, or certain medical conditions. These imbalances can lead to a range of symptoms, including fatigue, mood swings, decreased libido, weight gain, and hot flashes. Hormone pellet therapy aims to restore hormonal equilibrium by replenishing deficient hormones.

During the hormone pellet therapy procedure, bio-identical hormones are delivered directly into the body through subcutaneous pellets. These pellets are tiny, custom-compounded cylinders that contain a precise dose of hormones tailored to each patient’s unique needs. They are inserted painlessly under the skin, typically in the hip area, during a quick office visit.

What Do Hormone Pellets Do?

Once implanted, the pellets release a steady and consistent dose of hormones into the bloodstream, mimicking the natural rhythm of hormone production in the body. This method of delivery ensures optimal hormone regulation and avoids the fluctuations often associated with other forms of hormone replacement therapy.

One of the key advantages of hormone pellet therapy is its longevity. Unlike other forms of hormone replacement therapy that require daily pills or weekly injections, hormone pellets can provide sustained hormone levels for several months. This eliminates the need for frequent treatments and allows patients to enjoy the benefits of balanced hormones without interruption.

Benefits of Testosterone Pellet Therapy

  • Enhanced Energy Levels: Many patients experience increased energy and vitality, allowing them to engage in physical activities with greater enthusiasm and endurance.
  • Improved Sexual Wellness: Testosterone plays a vital role in sexual function, including libido, erectile function, and overall sexual satisfaction. Testosterone pellet therapy can often restore and enhance these aspects of a man’s life.
  • Muscle Development and Bone Strength: Testosterone is essential for maintaining muscle mass and bone density. By optimizing testosterone levels, patients may experience improved muscle tone, strength, and reduced risk of osteoporosis.
  • Mental Well-being: Hormonal imbalances can contribute to mood swings, depression, irritability, and cognitive decline. Testosterone pellet therapy can help stabilize mood and improve overall mental well-being.
  • Increased Focus and Cognitive Function: Many patients report enhanced mental clarity, concentration, and memory after undergoing testosterone pellet therapy.

Candidates for TRT

If you are experiencing symptoms such as fatigue, decreased libido, diminished muscle mass, increased body fat, mood swings, or difficulty concentrating, you may be suffering from low testosterone levels. Our team at AsandraMD can conduct a comprehensive evaluation, including hormone testing, to determine if testosterone pellet therapy is the right solution for you.

Dr. Asandra will explain the intricacies of testosterone deficiency and its impact on your overall well-being.

In some cases, additional therapies or treatments may be recommended to complement testosterone pellet therapy, such as lifestyle modifications, nutritional counseling, or exercise regimens. Dr. Asandra believes in a holistic approach to male hormone therapy, addressing not only the physical aspects but also the emotional and mental well-being of his patients.
