The doctor explains that when a patient refers to these characteristics and laboratory studies confirm the decrease in testosterone, hormone replacement therapy is recommended. “This can be done through the subdermal testosterone chip or pellet. This hormone, applied in the optimal amounts that each patient requires, has practically no adverse effects and, when evaluating whether or not it is a candidate for the chip, we take into account the pathological history that it may present, in addition to previous studies. The amount of milligrams to be applied will also vary according to gender and laboratory values. It can be indicated from the age of 30, as long as the aforementioned conditions are met, but the usual thing is that these symptoms begin to be observed much more from the age of 40 ”.
The medical procedure is also recommended for menopausal and premenopausal women. “It relieves hot flashes, improves vaginal lubrication, increases bone density, improves sleep and, in general, greatly contributes to hormonal balance. In addition, if it is accompanied by physical activity, it helps to shape the body”Says the doctor.
Barely the size of a grain of rice, the testosterone chip is placed under local anesthesia under the skin (in the subcutaneous or “fat” cell tissue), so it is imperceptible. “It is a highly demanded treatment for all its benefits : its placement takes no more than 15 minutes and allows you to return to normal activities on the same day. Gradually releases doses of bioidentical testosterone -similar to the one we have in the body and obtained from natural sources- to generate its effects: increased energy physical and mental, improved libido and sexual satisfaction. Patients report a constant feeling of well-being and, in addition, we verify this through increased levels of testosterone from blood tests. “
Asked about the duration of the effects, Miranda explained that they begin to appear within the first two weeks of placement and last around six months. “In some people even up to eight, period in which a new pellet can be put back in”, ended.
