Men’s Health at MD Ageless


Men’s health entails conditions that affect men, such as hormonal and sexual issues and conditions requiring specific treatment designed to address male ailments.

Testosterone replacement therapy has become an increasingly popular solution for treating low energy, low libido, and poor moods. Still, it can have potentially severe side effects – prompting the U.S. Attorney’s Office for Tennessee Western District to file suit against Memphis-based Ageless Men’s Health.

GLP-1 Injections

GLP-1 injections are a medication primarily used to manage blood sugar levels in those with Type 2 diabetes but have also proven successful at helping individuals lose weight. They work by mimicking the natural body hormone glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), which reduces appetite and food cravings. GLP-1 agonists come as both injectable medications or oral tablets; healthcare professionals typically administer them, but some individuals may self-inject.

GLP-1 agonists should be injected subcutaneously into fatty tissue underneath the skin (subcutaneous injection), typically in the abdomen, outer thighs, or upper arms. They may be administered at any time of day and with or without food; they are generally well tolerated, but side effects may include nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, or dizziness; caution should be used when changing injection sites to avoid infection; serious adverse events, including hypoglycemia and pancreatitis, should be reported immediately to a healthcare provider.

Current FDA-approved GLP-1 agonists include exenatide twice daily, lixisenatide once daily, liraglutide once weekly, dulaglutide once weekly, semaglutide once weekly, and albiglutide tablet form. Patients can choose their medication depending on medical history, insurance coverage, cost (GLP-1 drugs tend to be costly), and personal preferences – some prefer smaller needle sizes for injection devices or injection devices than others.

Though these medications effectively aid weight loss and manage blood sugar, they will not help individuals reach their ideal body weight. They should not be used for a history of medullary thyroid cancer or multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2. Furthermore, pregnant women should avoid using these drugs as these could potentially lead to developmental abnormalities for their babies.

Relators allege to the US Department of Justice that Ageless Men’s Health, a Tennessee-based company, received Medicare reimbursements for unnecessary or fraudulent office visits.

IPL Photofacials

IPL Photofacial is a quick laser treatment that utilizes light to revitalize the skin quickly and safely. It primarily targets the dermis without impacting epidermis layers; therefore, it is an excellent option for sun damage, freckles, scars or uneven pigmentation, redness reduction, and enlarged pores reduction. At MD Ageless, we utilize the Syneron ELOS Plus system when performing photo facials on our patients.

The handpiece of this machine emits pulses of light with various wavelengths, penetrating deep into the dermis where melanin or hemoglobin absorbs it, thus dissipating lesions and helping the skin heal itself. Photofacial can also be used to treat broken blood vessels and rosacea.

Laser treatments offer more precise targeting for specific spots on the body, making this treatment especially suitable for men who suffer from sun damage in multiple areas at once and is generally more cost-effective than laser procedures that target just one spot at once.

Photofacial treatments involve a practitioner applying a cooling gel to your face before donning dark glasses to protect your eyes from light exposure. Next, they use an electronic handheld device with flashes of light emitting flashes to move it over your face; the moments should cause your skin to redden temporarily before dissipating after several hours.

After receiving a photo facial, you may experience redness that resembles mild sunburn for one or two days, though this should not interfere with daily activities. Over time, your freckles, imperfections, or dark spots should gradually fade to reveal a more even skin tone.

Photofacial results may last many years with regular follow-up sessions, provided you manage sun exposure and use medical-grade skincare products. It is best to avoid direct sunlight for one week before and thirty days post-treatment to maximize effectiveness and prevent hypopigmentation (when patches of skin become lighter than their surroundings). Also, avoid receiving this treatment if you have heart disease or take medications that affect the central nervous system, as this increases the risk of hyperpigmentation, which could occur as a side effect of treatment.

Skincare Treatment

An effective skincare regimen is vital to maintaining a radiant complexion. A proper routine begins by cleansing your skin regularly to remove impurities that could clog pores and trigger breakouts, exfoliation to minimize ingrown hairs from shaving, blackheads, and ingrown hairs, while moisturizing keeps skin hydrated and soft.

Various skin treatments can address specific issues, including acne scars, age spots, sagging skin, and wrinkles. At the same time, some products are cosmetic only, while others may also provide medicinal benefits. Most of these products don’t require a valid prescription and can be found at cosmetic stores or online.

Vitamin-rich serums can be an extremely effective skin treatment option, helping reduce fine lines and wrinkles, brighten dark spots, increase collagen production, and even give an instant lift. Plus, they contain potency antioxidants to improve skin tone and texture.

As well as these serums, we also provide other skincare treatments like microdermabrasion and dermal fillers to enhance the appearance of your skin and restore its youthful radiance. These services can be performed in our office or home to regain suppleness and restore youthful radiance.

An effective skin peel can also provide excellent skincare benefits, helping remove dead skin cells for healthier-looking results and stimulating collagen and elastin production. A skin peel may reduce fine lines and wrinkles while improving the tone and texture of the skin, offering additional anti-aging benefits.

At Ageless Men’s Health, we also offer IPL Photofacials that can treat common facial skin issues like enlarged pores, sun damage, and hyperpigmentation quickly and effortlessly. With no disruption to your busy schedule required to receive treatment, this low-key procedure offers fast results without disrupting daily life. To maximize results from IPL Photofacial treatments, you must regularly cleanse and exfoliate your skin after each IPL Photofacial session; to do this properly, we suggest our Ageless Total Facial Cleanser, which works effectively as both face and body cleanser in both capacities to do this task efficiently!

Testosterone Replacement Therapy

Testosterone levels naturally decline with age due to biological, environmental, and lifestyle factors, impacting energy levels, libido, and erectile function. Hormonal replacement therapy can restore healthy hormone levels, allowing men to feel like themselves again – reviving them to feel more energetic!

However, testosterone therapy is no fountain of youth; no evidence suggests it will restore physical fitness or sexual performance to levels seen during one’s childhood, prevent heart disease or prostate cancer, increase life expectancy, or sharpen memory or mental faculties. Furthermore, testosterone can increase cholesterol and blood pressure levels. Excessive testosterone use may be a risk to prostate health, particularly among men with a family history or genetic mutations predisposing them to prostate cancer.

However, testosterone replacement therapy can provide many advantages to men suffering from hypogonadism. Testosterone replacement therapy can improve quality of life by increasing energy and libido. Furthermore, this therapy may relieve many symptoms of this disorder, such as low mood and depression.

Men should consult their physician to discuss whether testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) would suit them. Their testosterone levels and other blood tests must be regularly checked to ensure it does not have adverse reactions.

TRT typically involves injections into large muscles (such as buttocks or thighs). These injections can be administered by a nurse at a clinic, or men can learn how to get their shots at home. Gels and patches are also available that can be applied directly onto the skin daily for TRT purposes; however, weekly injections remain the most efficient solution for optimal results as this helps ensure even levels of the hormone in the blood.

Matias cautions that online companies have lured in many men by offering them small gel bottles to rub on their skin. He states that while some companies instruct patients to be under medical supervision, most do not perform a comprehensive medical examination and require clients to visit an established primary care physician before coming for treatment at his clinic.
