Men need testosterone to live well — it’s your strength, your power, your stamina — and it prevents many chronic illnesses. Testosterone therapy rejuvenates and revives; improving your sex drive and helping you get strong and lean. At Agenixs, we use only the safest and most effective forms of testosterone therapy: testosterone pellets or injections — never gels, creams, or patches. You’ll see dramatic results quickly: clearer thinking, improved mood and sleep, heightened sexual desire and staying power, more energy, and a better ability to manage stress.
Testosterone is the main sex hormone that men have. In addition to affecting your libido and your sexual performance, it’s also tied to well-being, confidence, energy, motivation, concentration, strength, muscle mass, and body fat. Testosterone replacement therapy is as much an art as it is a science. With years of experience treating low T, Dr. Savage knows exactly how to determine the right amount and delivery for you, customizing each treatment to optimize effective and safe improvements in health, energy, and performance. Intensify your edge and live better, stronger, and longer.
Testosterone is central to a healthy man’s life — it plays a role in everything from mood, sex, memory, metabolism, and physical strength. Unfortunately, as we age, our T-levels naturally decline.
TRT augments natural testosterone production, restoring it to normal levels.
“I didn’t even know that I was feeling that bad until Testosterone Therapy, and then I literally felt like a new man — my energy, my relationship with my wife, everything took off.”
Founded by Dr. Paul Savage, Agenixs is the leading expert on comprehensive testosterone therapy for men for over 20 years. He has performed over 10,000 testosterone pellet therapy procedures in Chicago. As a nationally renowned expert in his field, Dr. Savage has shared his expertise and insights on major news media outlets, including BusinessWeek, NBC, WGN, Fox News, Women’s World and The Chicago Tribune.
Dr. Savage is one of the leading speakers on testosterone pellet therapy, being called on often to teach physicians the proper technique in diagnosing and treating Low-T.
As the only team in the Chicagoland area with as much expertise and experience, there are few across the nation with as deep an understanding of testosterone therapy and its benefits as Agenixs. The Agenixs Team has performed upwards of 10,000 successful testosterone pellet therapy procedures.
Each Tic-Tac-sized pellet contains crystalline testosterone. During a brief and painless in-office procedure, pellets are implanted under the skin in the upper buttock area. The incision is so small it can be closed with a piece of tape. Once implanted, the pellets deliver a stable, steady dose of testosterone. Because the pellets dissolve slowly over 4 months, we can prevent the ups and downs seen with therapies like weekly (and painful) testosterone injections.
Injected into the thigh, glute, or deltoid muscles, testosterone is absorbed directly into the bloodstream. One advantage of injections is flexibility — dosages can be changed with each injection, if necessary, to achieve optimal concentrations. Administered weekly, biweekly, or bi-monthly, testosterone injections can boost energy, sex drive, and quality of erections; increase lean muscle mass; decrease body fat; boost memory and concentration; and relieve anxiety and depression.
“Testosterone therapy has been a miracle for me. I went from being overweight and lethargic, to feeling pumped, energetic and dropping weight. You’ve totally turned my life around.”
TRT therapy is both safe and effective. We discuss with each patient the potential risks of testosterone. The risks in using testosterone is magnified by physicians who do not know how to dose properly, do not keep tabs on their patients physical changes and who are too often forgetful to check the proper follow-up testing.
While there are risks associated with testosterone therapy, these are generally related to improper dosing; these risks include acne, blood clots, hair loss, and breast development. With decades of experience in administering appropriate testosterone therapy, we very rarely encounter these side effects in our patients.
Pellets are the most effective, safest, and convenient form of testosterone replacement.
Testosterone pellets have been in use for more than 60 years. Unlike creams and gels applied to your skin, pellets have no risk of contaminating women, children, and pets.
Pellets deliver more consistent testosterone levels. Over the long term, patients avoid the fluctuations seen with other hormone delivery methods.
Testosterone pellets are virtually painless and have few side effects. Another option is self-injected testosterone. But men often complain about pain; the weekly injection frequency; difficulty traveling with testosterone and needles; and side effects.
Each pellet — about the size of a small breath mint — contains natural compressed testosterone.
During a quick and painless procedure, these crystalline pellets are implanted under the skin in the upper buttock area. The incision is so small that it can be closed with a piece of tape.
Once implanted, pellets deliver a steady dose of testosterone. Because they dissolve slowly over four months, you avoid the ups and downs seen with therapies like weekly (and painful) testosterone injections. The effects last 4–6 months after treatment.
Yes, if requested we can administer testosterone intravenously. One advantage of injections is flexibility — dosages can be changed with each injection, if necessary, to achieve optimal concentrations. Administered weekly, biweekly, or bi-monthly, testosterone injections can boost energy, sex drive, and quality of erections; increase lean muscle mass; decrease body fat; boost memory and concentration; and relieve anxiety and depression.
