While accustomed to hearing about menopause in women, most men don’t realize that they undergo a similar transition called Andropause. Andropause, often referred to as “male menopause,” is a decline in testosterone production that begins in the early thirties.
The gradual change in hormonal status can cause a variety of symptoms such as:
- Low Libido
- Difficulty Maintaining Erections
- Weight Gain
- Reduced Muscle Mass
- Increased Abdominal Fat
- Irritability & Fatigue
- Exercise Intolerance
- Memory loss
- Trouble sleeping
- Reduced productivity

How Do I Find Out if I Need Male Hormone Optimization™?
If you have any of the symptoms above, you’re probably a good candidate. LAK MedSpa will measure hormone levels including testosterone with a simple blood test. A consultation with our physician will confirm if you are a candidate.
The hormone pellets are made in an accredited compounding pharmacy and consist of a small 2-3 mm solid cylinder about the size of a grain of rice. Using a sterile technique, the physician will implant the pellet under the anesthetized skin into a fat pad located in the hip or upper buttock region. Once the pellet is implanted it will immediately begin releasing a steady amount of hormone into the blood. Pellets deliver consistent, healthy levels of hormones for 3-5 months in both men and women.
Dr. Lisa Ohman Erhard, M.D. & Dr. Mark Erhard will develop a customized Hormone Optimization therapy for you. LAK MedSpa orders compounded, customized prescriptions from an accredited compounding pharmacy that specializes in hormone replacement therapies. This allows for a customized dosage strength made just for you, and you alone. It will be based on your symptoms, your test results, and your lifestyle.
Best of all, Hormone Optimization utilizing pellet implantation avoids the fluctuations, or ups and downs, of hormone levels seen with other delivery methods. As a result, maximum benefits are achieved with minimal side effects. Rest assured, throughout the entire treatment you’ll receive the very best in care and monitoring from Dr. Erhard and her team of medical professionals.
