It’s been theorized for years that high levels of testosterone increase a man’s risk for male pattern baldness. But new research is showing that isn’t necessarily the case. Genetic factors and family history, such as men in your family who are bald, are much more likely indicators than your level of testosterone as to whether or not you will go bald. So if going bald isn’t a risk, why would a man receive hormone therapy? Read on to discover why Ovation Med Spa in Houston offers hormone therapy for men, and the many benefits it provides.
What is Hormone Therapy for Men?
At Houston’s Ovation Med Spa, male hormone therapy is when hormones, including testosterone, are delivered to men and can help increase a Houston man’s testosterone levels from the declining levels he naturally feels in his 30s and 40s to the elevated levels he felt in his 20s. Hormone therapy for men is available for men who, at a recent physician’s appointment and follow up lab work, showed lower levels of testosterone. If you’re a Houston man with a low level of testosterone, you may have also noticed that you have:
- A lack of focus;
- Afternoon fatigue;
- Sleeping problems;
- General restlessness;
- A decrease in muscle mass;
- Decreased endurance; and
- Sexual performance issues.
At Houston’s Ovation Med Spa, hormone therapy for men can help with all of these inconvenient issues. Unfortunately, there is no research to show that hormone therapy for men will stop, delay or prevent male hair loss.
How is Male Hormone Therapy Implemented?
There are several ways to increase a man’s testosterone levels, including creams, shots, and pills. However, creams carry with them the risk of skin to skin contact with other people, and shots and pills require regular follow-up treatment. That’s why Ovation Med Spa uses pellets for hormone therapy for men. The pellet of testosterone is placed via an incision that doesn’t need stitches in the fat of the buttocks. The pellet lasts for about 4 to 6 months, and men typically begin feeling its effects the first week after the program begins.
The first week, men notice that their sleep improves. The second week, men feel as though they can think more clearly. The third week, men notice that anxiety and restlessness decrease. And within a month after the pellet is placed, men’s hormone levels typically peak and men begin to experience the full benefits of hormone therapy for men.
Does Male Hormone Therapy Increase Aggression?
Many people associated high testosterone levels with aggression and are concerned that it may be an unwanted side effect of hormone therapy for men. But aggression is only a concern with extremely high levels of testosterone, well beyond the levels that Ovation Med Spa would ever recommend for one of its clients. Rest assured, if you have male hormone therapy with us, we will only elevate your testosterone levels to safe, non-aggressive levels.
