BHRT for Men
Pro Age Medical & Aesthetics has been providing BHRT (TRT) for men since 2004. We are experienced in Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy.
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy, South CA
Men suffer from “andropause” as women suffer from menopause. Typically between the ages of 22-28 men start to have a decline in the production of their hormones. As we age, the decline significantly increases, and symptoms begin to develop. There is a myriad of symptoms that one might experience, Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) can help.
Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT)
Many of our patients who begin to suffer from some of the symptoms (or others) listed below, seek us out for our expertise and long-standing presence in Orange County. They have read or heard something about Testosterone Replacement Therapy or (TRT) and come to us for help. Low-T is a significant issue among men ages 34-70, although Low-T effects men of all ages. Lab work and a thorough review of your symptoms by an expert at Pro Age will help us determine if TRT or testosterone replacement therapy is right for you. We do a complete hormone evaluation with each and every Age Management / Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement patient that we see. We evaluate our patients primarily on symptoms but require lab work prior to your initial and follow up appointments. We will create a treatment plan specifically designed to alleviate the symptoms you are experiencing with bioidentical hormones. The treatment plan is the practitioners road map to meeting your goals.

Pro Age Medical & Aesthetics primarily treats on symptoms. TRT or Testosterone Replacement Therapy is designed to help men with Low-T or low testosterone. We offer a variety of delivery forms, however, testosterone injections are by far the most popular and effective. At Pro Age, we do not require you to come to our office once a week or every other week for your testosterone injections. Your testosterone injections are completed in the privacy of your own home. If you suffer from andropause or Low-T, Pro Age is here to help you overcome your testosterone deficiency and get you back on the right track.
Human Growth Hormone (HGH)
Human Growth Hormone or HGH Therapy is another hormone that is not typically addressed through your primary care physician. We are going to evaluate your IGF-1 levels and your symptoms to determine if HGH therapy is right for you.
There are many types of “Peptides”. At Pro Age we specialize in peptides that help increase your body’s natural IGF-1 or growth hormone levels.
Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone (GHRH)
Released by the brain to tell you body’s somatotrophs to secrete stored growth hormone. These peptides are commonly combined with GHRP’s (Growth Hormone Releasing Peptides) for maximum effects.
Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide (GHRP)
GHRP is a synthetic analogue of the hormone “ghrelin” and stimulates the release of an endogenous growth hormone (GH) from the anterior pituitary. Specifically, GHRP will increase the number of somatotrophs in a growth hormone pulse by limiting the amount of somatostatin. GHRP’s are commonly combined with GHRH (Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone) for maximum result.
Thorough evaluation of thyroid function is often neglected by primary care physicians. We will look at your thyroid and take an aggressive approach in optimizing both thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). If your thyroid is not optimal and you suffer symptoms, we will prescribe a bio-identical (Bio-E-Thyroid) formulation specifically customized for your needs. We do not prescribe synthetic thyroid medications that could have significant negative side effects.
There are many other hormones that we address in our evaluations. We would be happy to answer any additional questions you may have.
