At Paukman BioAge Clinic, we are proud to offer innovative testosterone replacement therapies, such as bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), which is hormone therapy that uses natural testosterone and not synthetic. Natural testosterone replacement therapies are becoming widely popular among older men. Dr. Paukman offers individualized low-T therapies for each of his patients for the best results possible with implantable testosterone pellets. Testosterone pellets are placed under the skin for continuous and reliable doses of testosterone, lasting 4-6 months.

Low testosterone levels can directly affect the quality of a man’s life, and andropause (low testosterone levels) can lead to symptoms like lack of sexual interest, depression, decreased erection firmness, and more. A highly effective testosterone replacement therapy, Testosterone pellets are designed to act as a continuous source of testosterone that mimics your body’s natural testosterone production and distribution. Testosterone pellets may be right for men who have not experienced relief from andropause or low-T after undergoing other types of hormone replacement therapies.

We also offer bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for women to help treat the symptoms of menopause or hormonal deficiencies. BHRT therapy uses hormones like estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone that are identical to the hormones that are made in your body. This unique approach to hormone replacement therapy allows for a reliable release of hormones through the body that mimics the natural release of hormones.

Hormonal deficiencies and menopause can cause a wide variety of symptoms in women. Some of the most common symptoms include irregular periods, hot flashes, mood swings, sexual dysfunction, and vaginal dryness. Some women may also experience low libido, trouble sleeping, rapid heartbeat, weight gain, slower metabolism, and thinning hair. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy has been shown to effectively alleviate these uncomfortable symptoms of menopause and help patients lead a healthier lifestyle.

Dr. Paukman offers a variety of regimens for medical weight loss, including B12 injections, lipotropic injections, and peptide injections. For patients with a B12 deficiency, vitamin B12 injections can help keep your nerves and red blood cells healthy and boost your metabolism. Lipotropic injections have been shown to provide increased energy, bolster your metabolism, and help burn off excess fat. Additionally, peptide injections can inhibit glucose (sugar) burning and help your body focus on burning fat reserves instead. Peptides can help you lose weight while you eat, sleep, or work due to their ability to reprogram your body to target fat cells first.

In some cases, Dr. Paukman may prescribe the HCG diet. The HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) diet uses a hormone that is directly linked to weight loss and an overall healthier lifestyle. HCG has been shown to increase your metabolism by helping your body more efficiently process food. The HCG diet is a low-calorie diet that limits your intake of certain types of food and requires regular injections of HCG. The HCG diet can be individually customized for each patient and can help you lose up to 1 pound a day.


IV (intravenous) therapy is an effective way to deliver highly concentrated vitamins and antioxidants into the body. IV therapy has been shown to benefit cigarette smokers, crash dieters, patients with infections, patients with weakened immune systems, highly stressed individuals, and patients with vitamin or antioxidant deficiencies. At Paukman BioAge Clinic, we offer a variety of IV therapies to treat many conditions, including anxiety, arthritis, asthma, depression, diabetes, memory loss, and more.

For patients with a vitamin or antioxidant deficiency, vitamin and antioxidant injections or IV therapy can increase necessary vitamins and antioxidant levels. Both vitamin and antioxidant injections and IV therapy are quick in-office procedures that often provide patients with same-day results. Some of the most requested vitamin injections include vitamin B12, vitamin B6, and vitamin C. Dr. Paukman also offers an array of antioxidant injections, including glutathione. Vitamin and antioxidant injections can be individually customized for each of his patients to fit their specific needs.
