Improve sexual function, feel better, look better, and have more energy
While most men consider testosterone to be the backbone of a solid sex life, the hormone actually plays a much larger role.
“Testosterone influences every organ in a man’s body,” says Dr. Laurel Matthews, of Dr. Laurel’s PRP Bar.
“When testosterone is low, mood changes appear, anxiety crops up, cognitive function is impaired, and difficulties with memory and concentration become more apparent.”
“Weight gain, particularly around the midsection, is common. Low testosterone can also diminish strength, cause diabetes, heart attack and stroke, and, of course, impact sexual desire and function,” she adds.
To help men get back to living the lives they enjoyed when they were younger, Dr. Laurel has introduced testosterone pellet replacement therapy, which she says is the gold standard in addressing the symptoms of low testosterone in men.
“It’s a simple and effective solution and provides continual relief from symptoms,” she says. “Pellets are a superior form of testosterone replacement. Shots hurt and create peaks and valleys in hormone levels. Pellets release a steady amount of testosterone, similar to the way the testes were making it. They also avoid the production of estrogen, which can result in ‘man boobs.’ And the pellets I use are the highest quality available in the U.S.”
For men who are sick of the hassle involved with weekly testosterone shots and daily creams, Dr Laurel’s Male Hormone Replacement Therapy is an ideal solution.
Instead, every four months, under local anesthetic, Dr. Laurel inserts the pellets under the skin. No additional procedures or prescriptions are required. The initial consultation is $250, and the procedure is $750, which includes the hormone. Dosages are customized to each patient and pellet therapy is bioidentical. Pellets are about the size of a grain of rice. “Patients will feel an almost immediate change,” she says.
Dr. Laurel’s Male Hormone Replacement Therapy program complements her arsenal of solutions for men with erectile dysfunction, including the P-Shot, where platelet-rich plasma is injected into the penis to grow new nerve endings and improve blood flow, and the Shockwave, which uses low-intensity acoustic wave therapy to improve sexual function.
