Safe and Effective Low Testosterone Treatment
Testosterone is the primary sex hormone in men and is responsible for building muscle, maintaining energy, and enjoying healthy sex life. However, as men age, their testosterone levels may decrease during andropause. Also known as male menopause, andropause can contribute to male hormone imbalance.
At Front Door MedSpa®, our Rochester specialists offer testosterone therapy to help improve testosterone levels and reverse the effects of hormone imbalance. Read on to learn more about this treatment and how you may benefit.
What is Testosterone Therapy?
Testosterone therapy or androgen replacement therapy is a procedure in which patients receive hormone supplements to counter the effects of andropause. When testosterone drops below a certain level, men will experience “Low T” or low testosterone symptoms such as difficulty working out, exhaustion, and even lower libido.
The rate of testosterone decrease varies between patients, as well as how their body responds to it.
