About LOW-T THERAPY
Maintaining balanced hormone levels is vital for your overall health. Men who experience hormone imbalances can often suffer from life-altering side effects, such as sluggishness, fatigue, inconsistent moods, weight gain, a lack of sex drive, and poor skin. As men age, they become even more susceptible to having imbalanced hormones. Attending physician Dr. A. D. Thakkar has a way to fight this process with Low-T Therapy. Low-T Therapy utilizes Pro-Pell hormone replacement therapy (HRT) in the form of pellets that are inserted into the skin, releasing bioidentical hormones to achieve hormonal balance. By keeping your hormones balanced with Low-T Therapy, you can substantially increase your health and happiness, as well as allow your body to function to its best ability. Give Youthology Med Spa in Roanoke, TX a call if you think you could benefit from HRT, or if you have any questions regarding the therapy.
As we get older, our hormone levels are more prone to becoming imbalanced, a process that often has a negative effect on the lives of countless people. This is the reason why Dr. Thakkar offers Low-T Therapy to men who are experiencing decreased levels of testosterone and who wish to combat this. In men, low testosterone can cause erectile dysfunction (ED), fatigue, irritability, and even health issues, such as diabetes, high cholesterol, and heart disease. Low-T Therapy using Pro-Pell Therapy works to correct these issues and revitalize your health and quality of life by keeping your hormones in balance. If you are experiencing the symptoms of low testosterone, schedule a consultation with Dr. Thakkar in Roanoke, TX to determine if you could be a candidate for this helpful service.
To begin the hormone replacement therapy process, blood work will need to be taken to determine your initial hormone levels and the dosage appropriate for your treatment. Once your Pro-Pell pellets are crafted, they will be inserted into your skin in one of Dr. Thakkar’s comfortable, private procedure rooms. A local anesthesia will be applied to the affected area to lessen any discomfort before the small incision is made into your hip for placement.
After the pellets have been inserted, you should avoid soaking in water for several days, as well as avoiding exercise. The incision will be taped closed, and you should keep this bandage clean and dry for three days. Side effects you could experience are bruising, redness, swelling, or bleeding at the insertion site. If you have any concerns while you are in the initial stages of recovery, please contact our office. Dr. Thakkar will let you know what symptoms are normal and which are not following your procedure.
WHAT TO Expect
You may experience some side effects in the first month following your Low-T Therapy procedure, such as bruising, swelling, redness, or bleeding at the area of insertion. These should subside after the first month. Most men report feeling the effects of their pellet insertion one or two days afterward. Depending on the dosage, the pellets deliver healthy, consistent results for 3 – 6 months, and you will likely be required to come in for another treatment therapy. Likewise, Dr. Thakkar will want to check up with you several weeks following your procedure to ensure that your dosage is suitable and that the pellet is performing optimally.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How much does Low-T Therapy cost?
The cost of your Low-T Therapy will depend on the hormone dosage you receive, and this will be reliant on your starting levels of testosterone. During your private consultation with Dr. Thakkar, he will assess your hormone levels with a blood sample and determine the dosage appropriate for your needs and goals.
How effective is Low-T Therapy?
Low-T Therapy is a process by which bioidentical HRT pellets are inserted into the hip, replicating the missing hormones and regulating hormonal balance. Because the pellets are bioidentical, they give off identical hormones to the ones that exist in your body currently, making them extremely safe and effective for the purpose of hormone replacement therapy.
How long does Low-T Therapy last?
Most men report feeling the positive effects of their Pro-Pell pellet insertion as soon as 1 – 2 days following the procedure. Depending on your beginning hormone levels and the dosage determined during your consultation, Low-T Therapy pellets are known to last for 3 – 6 months. They will never need to be removed as they are designed to completely dissolve on their own. When your pellet has dissolved, you may need to undergo another insertion to maintain your hormonal balance.
Is the procedure painful?
Because Dr. Thakkar will use a local anesthetic on the treatment area, the insertion process should be relatively painless. However, you may experience some soreness following the procedure once the local anesthetic wears off. If you are concerned about any potential pain, Dr. Thakkar can also administer nitrous oxide sedation to relieve any anxieties and further enhance your comfort.
Are there any side effects?
It is rare to experience any intense side effects following a pellet insertion for Low-T Therapy. Side effects, such as redness, swelling, bruising, and bleeding of the insertion site, may potentially occur. However, these will not last long. Dr. Thakkar will let you know what to expect following your procedure.
