Women experiencing low libido can benefit from testosterone replacement in Portland

For Women experiencing low libido testosterone replacement in Portland area doctor

The important role of testosterone in the male body has been clearly identified. Most men can directly correlate their physical and sexual wellness to testosterone simply based on their age. For instance, men going through andropause, or the natural drop in testosterone levels, are more likely to struggle with abdominal fat, decreased muscle mass, and low libido. Additionally, research has demonstrated an increased risk for depression, Alzheimer’s, osteoporosis, and heart attack in men with low-t. But what about their female counterparts?

Only in recent years have doctors and researchers begun to investigate how testosterone affects a woman’s sense of well-being. As focus has been placed on male deficiency, the need that women have for testosterone has largely been ignored. Now we are seeing that women who are experiencing low libido may be struggling with low testosterone, and there is something that can be done about it. At Thrive, women from Portland and surrounding areas can discuss their symptoms with an experienced physician, and find the solution they need to regain a healthy libido and much more.

An emerging body of proof

At the Jean Hailes Foundation in Australia, Dr. Susan Davis has spent years studying the effects of testosterone, and testosterone replacement, on women. In her research, Dr. Davis has identified the correlation between testosterone and a woman’s libido. Additionally, this androgen has been shown to help a woman maintain a healthier weight, to think more clearly, and to experience a generally better mood. Patients treated with low doses of testosterone also demonstrated a boost in motivation and energy. Newer studies are showing that optimizing testosterone in women also aids in the prevention of osteoporosis, a major concern after menopause.

Hormone replacement and breast cancer

One of the primary concerns that arose during the years in which hormone replacement therapy became intensely popular was the link between synthetic hormones and breast cancer. Research performed in 2000 demonstrated that estrogen stimulated the rapid growth of cells in breast tissue, whereas cell growth was minimal when tissue was exposed to testosterone. Additional research from 2003 confirmed these findings, suggesting that natural (non-synthetic) hormone optimization provides more benefit than risk.

Dr. Maddox has provided bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for 15 years. To learn more about treatment, call (503) 928-6505.

miraDry® TREATMENT

FOR EXCESSIVE SWEATING

Say goodbye to armpit hair and underarm sweating. Mirror Smooth (miraDry??) will save your day.

miraDry® TREATMENT FOR EXCESSIVE SWEATING

You shave it. You wax it, you laser it. Heck, you might even dye it pink. Talking about armpit hair. Now some people are saying you can microwave it away once and for all. We’re revealing a new treatment right now and our procedure room. Take it away, Doctor Ashton.

Hi guys So, I’m back here with doctor sheila Nazarian, board certified plastic surgeon and our patient Aaron. You’re going to be demonstrating this new microwave procedure to hit axillary hair, but before we get to that, tell, tell me why this hair bothered you, Aaron? Because I mean, you’re blonde, you wouldn’t mind.

I’m a personal trainer. I spend 95% of my day in a tank top in the gym or in a bikini and shaving every day is such a pain. No one likes to do it. I tried laser hair removal. It doesn’t work. If you have blonde hair and darker skin. So, I heard about mirror smooth So, thought I’d give it a try.

And you said it’s your game, okay, So, doctor Nazarian,

Yeah,

Go ahead and lie back Aaron. So, as you start working tell us a little bit about this technology. Who’s a good candidate for it and how? Does it work?

Well, the beauty of this technology is that everyone is a good candidate. Any skin colour, any hair colour? I’ve actually had the procedure performed on myself, didn’t get any hyperpigmentation from it.

So, you numbed Aaron up before we started, right?

Arron’s been numbed already. We’ve placed a temporary tattoo which basically gives us little tick marks. It’s really paint by numbers at that point and we use the microwave technology of mirror smooth to remove not only 70% of her hair with one treatment, but also the sweat and odour glands are also eliminated. So, it’s basically a little suction and some you know heat is applied, but because she’s numb there’s no pain.

You feel anything?
Fine, just a little pull,

Yeah.

And So, how many treatments typically does it take to really get a good effect?

So, 80% of people really only need one treatment. You’re going to get an 82% reduction in the sweat and odour glands and a 70% reduction in the hair growth. Which, if you’ve ever had laser hair, you know you need multiple treatments in order to get anywhere close to 70%.

So, what’s the cost range for something like this?

This that’s a great question. So, the first treatment is around 2000 dollars, but it’s, but if you think about how many laser hair removal treatments to do. I mean, it really is a great benefit and also laser hair doesn’t remove the sweat and odour glands.

Nice, well, 2000 dollars, meaning that you could throw away all your razors for the rest of your life.
Exactly

Right,

Never have to worry about sweating in your armpits again and being musty.

No more deodorant and think of all the money you spend on deodorant over a lifetime.

That’s true.

And it takes how long to do both pitch?

We usually schedule people for an hour at a time?
An hour!

So, can you imagine an hour and you’re done.
Oh my gosh,

Yeah,

Sign me up, scoot over.

Second string.

Amazing.

The one done idea is very appealing.

Exactly, yeah.

Thanks for sharing that with us and thanks for showing us your armpits,

Thanks for having me

You’re welcome.
