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. Even though TRT can help improve symptoms of low testosterone, it can potentially cause a number of side effects, including increased red blood cell counts, irritability, and acne. Men with low testosterone should talk with their doctor and weigh the potential risks and benefits of therapy before deciding whether TRT may be right for them.
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 Regen-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.
