What to know about Testosterone Topical Gel
How it Works
The gel is rubbed into the skin on your upper arm or shoulder. As the gel dries, testosterone is absorbed through your skin. Gel application appears to cause fewer skin reactions than patches do.
Who is it for?
Men dealing with primary male hypogonadism and symptoms of low T are candidates for TRT. Low testosterone levels can be caused by testicular dysfunction and can be congenital or develop most commonly as a man ages.
Studies suggest that testosterone topical gels are a safe and effective treatment for men with hypogonadism.1
