Testosterone Therapy Treatment (TRT)

Testosterone declines naturally as men age. Having testosterone deficiency can develop various medical conditions. Men with low testosterone typically exhibit various symptoms, including decreased energy levels, low sexual desire, erectile dysfunction, memory loss, low bone density, and reduced muscle mass. These symptoms can greatly affect a man’s self-esteem and ability to function physically, mentally, and impact their overall lifestyle. The underlying cause of these symptoms is typically due to low testosterone levels. The most common solution to treat low testosterone is to increase testosterone levels to an optimal range. By utilizing testosterone replacement therapy (TRT), men over 40 can restore their virility and optimize their health again. In addition, many men report experiencing several benefits and significant results shortly after starting TRT for low testosterone treatment. However, fixing these issues can be difficult without the supervision and support from a healthcare provider. Improve your sexual performance, stamina, muscle mass, and energy with our safe, effective, and affordable testosterone replacement therapy treatment. Testosterone replacement therapy is a safe and effective treatment for men who are diagnosed with consistently abnormal low testosterone production and have androgen (testosterone hormone) deficiency symptoms. Balanced hormone levels are an essential part of a healthy lifestyle; a lifestyle that promotes good health, vitality, and longevity. There are several benefits that men can reap from testosterone replacement therapy, which include:

Cardiovascular health

The more balanced your body’s testosterone levels are, the better your heart and the rest of your cardiovascular system will function.

Increased muscle mass

Men who undergo our testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) see a dramatic improvement in the way their body functions. You will notice enhanced performance in your activities and maintain lean muscle mass.

Improved memory and mood

When testosterone levels drop, it’s likely that you’ll feel your mood change. For many men, these mood changes often result in irritability and depression. Our testosterone replacement treatment (TRT) will help stabilize your mood, giving you the ability to function at your highest level.

Increased Libido

Naturally as men age their testosterone levels will decrease which can lead to less sexual desire. By increasing your testosterone levels to an optimal level, you can regain a healthy sex drive.

Promote quality sleep

By enhancing your body testosterone level to its optimal level, it will improve your mood and promote a more restful sleep cycle.

Improved Energy

Erectile dysfunction (ED) also referred to as impotence is a common but frustrating sexual problem many men face. Erectile dysfunction is the inability to get or keep an erection during sexual activity. Usually, sexual stimulation is enough to get things going, but men with erectile dysfunction have trouble staying firm through ejaculation. Erectile dysfunction is commonly caused by poor blood flow, though psychological factors can also play a role in its development. Additionally, heavy alcohol consumption and smoking may also result in impotence. Other causes of erectile dysfunction are obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, multiple sclerosis, heart disease, and aging

FAQ for Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy (TRT)

Hormones are chemical messengers that regulate functions in the body. Testosterone is a type of androgen hormone and is responsible for the development of male sexual characteristics. Testosterones also regulate sperm production, sex drive, bone mass, fat distribution, muscle size, and red blood cell production. Testosterone hormones are produced primarily by the testicles while the brain and pituitary gland regulate the amount of testosterone levels being produced. Once produced, the testosterone hormone moves through the blood to carry out its various important functions.

Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) is a form of Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) for both men and women whose levels have decreased due to aging. Testosterone replacement therapy restores testosterone, the hormone that helps you maintain muscle mass, strong bones, healthy hair, and a healthy sex drive. Testosterone also impacts many other facets of your whole-body health, including your mood and energy levels. When testosterone hormone is imbalanced, it can cause serious effects on the body.

Bio-identical hormones have the same genetic makeup as the natural hormones produced by the body. For example, testosterone cypionate is one of the common testosterone replacement therapies used and it is a natural and bioidentical form of testosterone.

Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) has a wide range of benefits depending on each individual patient. Many men on testosterone replacement therapy experience the following:

  • Increased energy
  • Improved stamina
  • Enhanced libido
  • Increased strength
  • Improved muscle mass
  • Decreased body fat
  • Improved sleep
  • Enhanced recovery
  • Improved in mood
Yes! Having optimized testosterone hormone levels promotes healthy weight. If you are gaining weight or struggle with losing weight, it is likely due to having low testosterone hormone levels. Optimizing your testosterone hormone level will help burn calories more efficiently, suppress fat gain, promote muscle growth, and increase energy to stay more active.
Yes, it is safe when you are under the care of a trained healthcare professional. Having an optimal level of testosterone through TRT is not only safe, but it is healthy and life changing for many men.
Any Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) can have potential side effects that vary from patient to patient. Our healthcare providers have vast experience in eliminating potential side effects while maximizing benefits. All patients are carefully monitored during and after testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) to prevent any potential side effects. Some of the common side effects of TRT include elevated red blood cell count, acne, sleep apnea, possible prostate enlargement, and stroke. There is no firm scientific evidence that long-term testosterone replacement is associated with either prostate cancer or cardiovascular events. The FDA requires that you are made aware that the possibility of cardiovascular events may exist during treatment. Prostate cells are stimulated by testosterone, so be extra vigilant about prostate cancer screenings through your primary care or your urologist.
If you have consistent low testosterone levels and are exhibiting symptoms of low testosterone, such as low energy, weight gain, low sex drive, mood changes, and decreased testosterone blood levels, then testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) may be an effective solution to help treat your symptoms.
Hypogonadism is a condition in which the body is unable to produce normal amounts of testosterone hormone due to a problem with the testicles or with the pituitary gland that controls the testicles. About 4 in 10 men have hypogonadism (low testosterone) by the time they reach 45 years old. Low testosterone is becoming more and more common. Testosterone hormone replacement therapy (TRT) is rapidly expanding due to the many benefits of hormone optimization.
After age 30, men’s testosterone levels typically begin to decline and continue to decrease by 1% yearly for the rest of their lives. However, aging isn’t the only cause of low testosterone. Many other potential medical conditions can also lead to testosterone decline, which include:

  • Injury or infection to the testes
  • Hemochromatosis (a disorder where too much iron is produced in the blood)
  • Testicular cancer
  • Chemotherapy
  • Chronic kidney disease
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Cirrhosis of the liver
  • Kallman syndrome (abnormal development of the hypothalamus)
  • Klinefelter syndrome (a genetic condition in which a male is born with an extra copy of the X chromosome)
Testosterone hormone is considered a schedule III-controlled substance in the Controlled Substances Act. Federal and State laws require a face-to-face exam and ongoing management with the prescribing healthcare provider. Ordering testosterone hormone replacement therapy (TRT) online can be illegal and dangerous because quality control of medications can be compromised.
Some primary care, urologist, and endocrinologists are trained in hormone replacement therapy (HRT), yet most are not up to date on the latest protocols for advanced HRT. Like any medical discipline, today’s fast-moving changes in research require a specialist in each type of medicine. NuCavanvas Aesthetics and Wellness Center specializes in testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) and preventive medicine. Managing testosterone replacement therapy is our main focus while most regular doctor offices manage a wide variety of health conditions. Therefore, they may not always be up to speed on TRT and proper techniques for maximum results. Our trained healthcare providers have vast experience in hormone optimization and can set up efficient, safe, and affordable therapies that deliver real results. We provide a 1:1 private consultation with long-term follow up and management with all our patients.
Naturally, testosterone hormone can be converted into estradiol, therefore when taking testosterone via testosterone replacement therapy (TRT), this can potentially elevate estrogen levels. Fortunately, most men on standard TRT doses do not experience high estradiol levels. Nevertheless, genetically predisposed men may experience symptoms associated with high levels, which may lead to certain unwanted side effects. One of the most common and significant side effects for men when taking testosterone hormone is gynecomastia (enlarged breasts) or swollen nipples. Taking an anti-estrogen, while on TRT will prevent gynecomastia. Our skilled health care providers will monitor both your testosterone and estrogen level closely and can prescribe you the anti-estrogen medication if needed.
Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) can widely vary depending on individual goals and needs. After proper evaluation and lab work our healthcare provider can help you decide which therapy is right for you. You may be surprised how affordable a TRT program can be. There are payment options and membership options available to help plan your budget.
Patients are required to see their prescribing healthcare provider in-person, for their consultation, examination, and comprehensive lab work up. The prescribing healthcare provider will determine, communicate, and schedule follow up lab work and office visit as necessary in conjunction with an individualized treatment plan. The healthcare provider will also prescribe and schedule lab work for any current patient upon their request.
Yes, you can. You may already have lab work that your primary care provider completed for you. If not, you may ask your primary care provider to order the necessary labs for you. You can send the most recent results to us. A patient with their own blood work will still need a face-to-face consultation with our healthcare providers to be able to start testosterone replacement therapy.
Testosterone travels through your blood in two ways:

  • Attached to the proteins albumin and sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG)
  • Free testosterone – not attached to any proteins

Usually, you’ll get a total testosterone test as a screening test. This measures both free and attached testosterone. To diagnose certain conditions, healthcare providers sometimes look only at free testosterone levels.The testosterone test can help find the reason for sexual problems, like reduced sex drive or erectile dysfunction. Additional test may be tested to evaluate problems with the hypothalamus or pituitary gland, these glands control how much testosterone your body makes.
