Testosterone replacement therapy is just what it sounds like. It is used to restore testosterone in the body to a normal level range. Symptoms of low testosterone include low libido, fatigue, weight gain (especially in the abdominal area), muscle loss, and sleep problems. TRT comes in a variety of forms, including injections, transdermal patches or gels, and subdermal pellets, each of which carries its own set of risks and benefits.
Erectile dysfunction is the inability to get or maintain an erection. It affects nearly 30 million men in the United States. Although the occasional problem with an erection is not rare, it is not normal to occur often. It can happen due to blood pressure problems, decreased blood flow to the penis, diseases such as diabetes, or emotional stress. What about medications? It can be treated through sublingual tablets, testosterone therapy, injections into the penis, special procedures such as pulse-wave therapy or PRP, or even surgery.
This procedure involves painless injections of the patient’s own platelet-rich plasma into the penis. This helps rejuvenate blood flow and stimulate new growth, which causes firmer, stronger erections. It has also been shown to increase penis size. This procedure is helpful in patients with Peyronie’s disease, enlarged prostate or are no longer responding to or desire to stop using erectile medications.
A platelet-rich plasma facial involves using the patient’s own plasma and platelets, which are easily extracted via a blood draw. The blood is then spun in a centrifuge to remove the platelet-rich plasma. The plasma is spread onto the face and then microneedling is done. Microneedling is exactly what it sounds like — a procedure that creates a series of tiny, superficial punctures using sterile needles. The benefits of PRP include collage production, which helps reduce wrinkles and fine lines, remove age spots and scars, and improve overall appearance of the skin. PRP can also be injected into target areas, such as crow’s feet and laugh lines.
A platelet rich plasma procedure for hair loss involves using the patient’s own plasma and platelets, which are easily extracted via a blood draw. The blood is then spun into a centrifuge to remove the platelet-rich plasma. The PRP is then injected into the hair line and scalp to help restore hair growth, naturally.
The painless pulsating soundwaves of the Pulse Wave ED procedure opens up old blood vessels, and stimulate the formation of new vessels, in a process known as neovascularization. This results in improved blood flow, which helps any man—not just those with ED—to achieve stronger and more sustainable erection.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a way to bioidentically replace the hormones men and women lose over the course of their lives. We use bioidentical hormone therapy to balance hormones in a way that helps patients reclaim their health. As a hormone replacement therapy patient, you receive two to four bioidentical hormone pellet insertions per year. This way you don’t have to think about it, and the hormone is available when your body needs it. It’s a simple, one-and-done process, and there’s no need to worry about remembering to take a pill every day. Feel better no matter your age. Our bioidentical hormones will help you avoid the adverse side effects of synthetic hormones.
The stem cells we use at TPMC are top of the line quality and are extracted from amniotic fluid and membranes, placenta, and Wharton’s Jelly of a young, healthy woman’s donated placenta. These can be used for a wide variety of conditions, but we are currently using them for erectile dysfunction and in aesthetic procedures such as facials.
Botulinum toxin is a neurotoxin that inhibits release of acetylcholine at the neuromuscular junction. Injection of small quantities of botulinum toxin into specific overactive muscles causes localized muscle relaxation that smooths the overlying skin and reduces wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid-containing dermal fillers are used for treating signs of skin aging. Hyaluronic acid has a “plumping” effect that’s useful for both wrinkles and volumizing the lips.
