Testosterone is a hormone that plays a vital role in male development and health. It is responsible for the growth of muscle mass, bone density, red blood cell production, and maintaining energy levels. Testosterone also affects mood and sex drive. However, as men get older, their testosterone levels change. In fact, after peaking in the teens and 20s, testosterone levels decline gradually with age. (2)
Additionally, some men may experience low testosterone due to hypogonadism, a medical condition that affects the testicles’ ability to produce enough hormones. Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) is a treatment designed to increase testosterone levels in men with low levels of this hormone.
Signs of Low T
- Lack of Energy
- Reduced Muscle Mass
- Low Sex Drive
- Hair Loss
- Lack of Focus
- Reduced Stamina
- Increased Body Fat
- Reduced Body Hair
Getting Started with TRT
Before starting TRT, a thorough evaluation should be conducted to determine if there is an underlying medical condition causing low testosterone levels. Blood tests will be performed to measure testosterone levels, as well as other hormones like luteinizing hormone and follicle-stimulating hormone that affect testosterone production. A physical exam and medical history will also be taken into consideration.
Treatment plans will be individualized based on each patient’s needs and goals.
Benefits of TRT
- Increased energy levels and stamina
- Improved muscle mass and strength
- Enhanced libido and sexual performance
- Reduced risk of depression and anxiety
- Improved cognitive function and memory
- Better sleep patterns
- Decreased body fat
- Regulated blood sugar levels
- Stronger bones and reduced risk of osteoporosis

We will work with you to determine the right dosage and delivery method that suits your lifestyle and preferences.

Before TRT, patients will need to undergo a thorough medical evaluation by Dr. Canales or Dr. Furnas to determine if they are healthy enough to receive testosterone replacement therapy. Additionally, patients should have realistic expectations for the outcome of the treatment and be committed to following up with regular appointments to monitor their progress.

Preparing for TRT
Before undergoing testosterone replacement therapy, it is important to prepare yourself both mentally and physically. TRT can have a significant impact on your overall well being, so taking the time to properly prepare is crucial for achieving the best possible results.
Once you have decided to move forward with TRT, there are several steps you can take to prepare yourself:
- Get a full blood panel to determine your current hormone levels
- Address any underlying health conditions that may be affecting your hormone production
- Make lifestyle changes such as increasing your exercise regimen and improving your diet to optimize your overall health
- Speak with your doctor about any potential side effects of TRT and how to mitigate them
- Prepare for any necessary follow-up appointments or lab work
By taking these steps, you can ensure that you are ready for TRT and set yourself up for success in achieving optimal hormone balance and overall wellness.
After undergoing testosterone replacement therapy, patients may experience some mild side effects such as acne or an increase in red blood cell count. However, these side effects are typically temporary and can be managed with medication. Patients will also need to schedule follow-up appointments so that we can monitor their progress and make any adjustments to the treatment plan if needed.
It is important to note that the results of TRT are not immediate and can take several weeks or even months to fully manifest. However, patients can expect to see an improvement in their energy levels, mood, and libido as well as an increase in muscle mass and bone density. With ongoing treatment and care, patients can enjoy improved overall health and wellness, as well as a boost in confidence and self-esteem.
Corresponding & Complementary Treatments
Precision ED is a revolutionary treatment that can help men achieve stronger and longer-lasting erections. This non-invasive procedure uses acoustic waves to stimulate blood flow in the penis, which can lead to improved sexual performance and heightened sensitivity.
CoolSculpting is a revolutionary, FDA-cleared treatment that uses cryolipolysis to reduce stubborn pockets of subcutaneous fat. Cryolipolysis is a non-invasive method of freezing adipose tissue, causing the body to naturally eliminate it over time. This aesthetic treatment is an effective alternative to invasive procedures such as liposuction and is suitable for both men and women.
Botox for Men
Botox injections work by temporarily relaxing the facial muscles responsible for creating wrinkles. The neuromodulator (botulinum toxin) blocks the signals sent from the nerves to the muscles, resulting in muscle relaxation and smoothing of the overlying skin. The result is a refreshed, more youthful look without the need for invasive surgical procedures like facelifts.
