Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men in Oklahoma City
Feel Like Your Old Self Again
Low testosterone, also known as low T or andropause, is classically observed in men of middle age. Research suggests that around age 45, nearly 40 percent of men will begin to experience symptoms of low testosterone. Testosterone levels begin to decline in a man around his late 20s and recede over time. By age 40, most men begin to notice at least one or two symptoms of andropause or low testosterone.
Many men will brush off these symptoms as side effects of aging and delay or never seek treatment. Low levels of testosterone are risky to a man’s health. A number of studies have confirmed that low testosterone is correlated with an increased risk of disease and seeking treatment to achieve hormonal balance can support a reduced risk of disease.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) for men with EvexiPel testosterone pellets provides natural restoration of testosterone, mimicking the natural structure and function of testosterone made by the human body. Unlike other delivery methods, pellet therapy maximizes convenience and efficacy to achieve optimal results.
During a routine appointment at Renew Wellness & Aesthetics, a pellet is inserted under the top dermal layer of the skin near the upper buttock area. Over the course of 5 to 7 months, depending on your body’s needs and lifestyle, the pellet releases a steady dose of testosterone to support your body’s needs. For men who are more active or under high stress, more hormone is released—the same reaction as the body would have with natural testosterone.
Renew Wellness & Aesthetics offers EvexiPEL testosterone pellets. EvexiPEL has a reputation as the superior form of pellet therapy because it is custom-compounded with the highest quality ingredients in one of the leading compounding pharmacies in the nation. For men seeking to achieve optimal outcomes and experience life to the fullest at any age, schedule your BHRT consultation with Dr. Julie Shelley at Renew Wellness & Aesthetics.

Why Try Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men in Oklahoma City?
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) uses bioidentical hormones derived from natural sources and compounded to be an exact structural match to the hormones inside the human body. Synthetic hormones are often derived from animals and combined with chemicals to create a hormone therapy that is similar, but not exactly like human hormones. The natural ingredients combined with the molecular match allows bioidentical hormones to fit into human hormone receptors exactly as naturally-occurring hormones. This feature ensures the safety and efficacy of the treatment.
Unfortunately, most traditional medical practices don’t take the time to find out why you don’t feel like yourself anymore. At Renew Wellness and Aesthetics, we get to the root of the problem to uncover why our patients do not feel well. More often than not, hormone imbalance is to blame. From there, we can customize an optimization treatment plan designed specifically for you that may include testosterone pellet therapy, thyroid optimization, and/or nutritional supplements.
Improvements to health and wellbeing
With the proper dosage, hormone replacement therapy can lead to improvements to sleep, mood, bone strength, muscle mass, and more.
The Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men Process
What to Expect
Before your bioidentical hormone replacement therapy in Oklahoma City, you'll meet with Dr. Shelley for a detailed consultation and lab work to get to the root of the problem. We will discuss your concerns, symptoms, goals, and sensitivities.
At your second appointment, Dr. Shelley will do a thorough review and explanation of your lab results. Based on your initial consultation and lab results, Dr. Shelley will create a personalized treatment plan for your needs, which may include testosterone pellet therapy, thyroid optimization, and/or nutritional supplements.
Men can expect to experience the benefits of their pellet implants within 1 to 2 weeks. On average, pellet implants last 5 to 6 months in men.
- Stop taking any blood-thinning medications, including ibuprofen, aspirin, and acetaminophen, one week before the procedure. If your doctor has instructed you to take any such medications daily, you must consult with them before stopping.
- Avoid sun exposure to the treatment area.
- Use all medications as directed for the recommended amount of time.
- Speak to your provider if you experience any abnormal or prolonged symptoms.
- Remove your tape or steri-strip over the incision area after 3 days. If the tape of steri-strip becomes wet, remove it immediately. You can replace it with a dry band-aid.
- Do not take tub baths or get into a hot tub or swimming pool for 3 days. You may shower, but do not scrub the injection site until the incision is well healed (about 7 days).
- Do not engage in major exercise for the incision area for 4 days following treatment.
- Return for your follow-up appointment 5 to 6 weeks after pellet therapy for labs to measure your hormone levels.
Frequently Asked Questions
How does BHRT via EvexiPEL hormone pellets work?
Pellets are inserted under the skin near the hip or buttocks area during a routine appointment with your provider. After insertion, the pellet releases a steady dose of hormone(s) over 5 to 6 months depending on your activity and stress level–much like your natural hormones. This feature avoids the peaks and valleys commonly associated with other hormone replacement therapy delivery methods. Plus, you do not have to remember to take a pill each day or risk transference as you do with creams or gels.
Does low testosterone cause long term health risks in men?
There are many long-term health risks that may occur when low testosterone levels are not treated. For one, men with low testosterone levels are more likely to gain weight and develop weak muscles. Chronic weight gain and obesity can lead to a number of cardiovascular issues and increase the risk of diabetes.
Can BHRT help patients lose weight?
BHRT is not a magic bullet for losing weight; however, when hormones are optimized, weight-loss efforts typically begin to pay off. What BHRT may do is increase energy, improve quality of sleep, increase muscle mass and fat burning, and decrease cortisol levels (which cause belly fat and type 2 diabetes). So, those stubborn 5 or 10 pounds the has been battling? That's where increased energy and the weight loss benefits of BHRT may shine through.
