Transform your health and wellness with personalized peptide therapy tailored to your unique needs.
No matter the issue, peptide therapy can improve whatever is bothering you. For years, peptides have been popular in topical skin care products and even supplements to improve the natural effect of aging on the body. Peptides, a type of protein, can play an essential role in providing the body with the elements it needs to function correctly and create better balance overall.
Peptides are building blocks of proteins composed of amino acids that regulate biological functions and processes within the body. These naturally-occurring peptides act as a signal of sorts and tell specific cells how to perform and what to do. There are thousands of peptides in the human body, and each has a different responsibility for regulating bodily functions. For example, peptides can help with pain relief, soft tissue repair, accelerating healing processes, promoting weight loss and lean muscle gain, reversing symptoms of sexual dysfunction, and improving hormone production and cognitive function.
Like other treatments that improve the body from within, peptide therapy is no different. However, the popular treatment has regenerative properties that can help improve age-related effects on the body by boosting the natural production of a particular hormone, like human growth hormone. Increasing hormones help improve how the body heals and recovers overall, increase energy and strength, promote hair growth, and more.
What is peptide therapy?
Simply put, peptides are short-chain amino acids that are the building blocks of proteins that improve cell signaling in the body. Different peptides have different functions. For example, collagen peptides can help improve skin, hair, the nails and nail conditions. Other peptides help improve and support blood sugar control, lowering cholesterol and even the immune system.
Unlike amino acids, peptides are smaller and more easily absorbed. Because they are small, they are more easily and quickly broken down and absorbed by the body than proteins. Their immediate effects improve the skin, gut and optimum body function.
Peptide therapy is a popular treatment that relies on improving and restoring the number of peptides within the body to stimulate cellular regrowth. Peptide therapy is an individualized treatment that relies on peptides administered directly into the bloodstream through injections. The treatment can treat many conditions, fight bacterial, viral, and fungal infections, and reduce oxidative stress.
Peptide Therapy replaces or mimics the functions of naturally occurring peptides to rewrite your body’s chemistry to promote restoration, anabolism, and homeostasis. These naturally occurring peptides act as signaling molecules within the body and instruct other cells and molecules on what functions to perform.
Other improvements that are typically seen with peptide therapy include:
|Cellular regrowth||Boosts energy|
|Enhances physical performance||Increases bone and cartilage health|
|Increases and speeds up healing||Repairs soft tissue|
|Increases weight loss||Burns fat|
|Builds lean muscle||Improves appearance|
|Regenerates collagen||Enhances sleep quality|
|Sharpens memory and cognitive function|
How does peptide therapy work?
With about 7,000-plus different peptides within the human body, each is responsible for facilitating a different response and action within the body. Providing the body with peptides can improve specific conditions and issues, including:
- Cellular regrowth
- Pain relief
- Aiding in soft tissue repair
- Accelerating healing processes
- Promoting weight loss and lean muscle gain
- Reversing symptoms of sexual dysfunction
- Improving hormone production and cognitive function
Most peptides are injected by patients at home using a small insulin syringe.
Who is peptide therapy best for?
Peptide therapy can improve the effects of bodily functions like digestion, metabolism, weight loss, sexual desire, inflammation, neuropathy, and age-related conditions.
Research shows some peptides can improve obesity, joint pain, and loss of muscle mass. Others have been used to treat inflammatory conditions such as chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, autoimmune diseases, and wound healing. Specific peptides are also used for neurocognitive support, such as anxiety, depression, brain injury, and stroke.
Peptide therapy is also recommended for those who are athletic and looking to maximize the results of their workouts. It’s also a good treatment for middle-aged people who produce fewer amino acids.
Every patient undergoing peptide therapy is different; on average, the first signs of improvement are seen within a few weeks.
However, this treatment is not an instant cure-all or a quick fix. Instead, it’s a treatment that can improve your body’s natural ways of healing. As a result, some might see a difference in how they feel after starting peptide therapy treatment, while others may find it takes several weeks to even a few months to notice the desired effects.
What are the benefits of peptide therapy?
Peptide therapy offers many benefits, but it’s essential to know that the treatment has a “loading” period of 3-6 months before full effects are noticed. Benefits start within the first few weeks, increasing synergistically with continued therapy. Depending on the peptides used, you may see improvement in achieving a healthy weight, improved sleep, quicker recovery from wounds and injuries, increased stamina, and even anti-aging benefits that improve the skin. Some of the more typically seen results include:
|Boosts energy||Builds muscle|
|Enhances physical performance||Burns fat|
|Increases weight loss||Repairs muscles and tendons|
|Improves appearance||Increases sex drive|
|Enhances sleep quality||Sharpens memory and cognitive focus|
Typically, within a few weeks, you’ll start seeing the therapy’s first effects, like improved sleep and energy. However, the full results can take 3-6 months.
A combination of different peptides may be recommended to help achieve optimal results. Commonly used peptides include:
GHK-Cu has a variety of roles in the human body, including, but not limited to, promoting activation of wound healing, attracting immune cells, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, stimulating collagen and glycosaminoglycan synthesis in skin fibroblasts and promoting blood vessel growth. It significantly signals tissue remodeling, removes damaged/scarred tissue, and generates new, healthy tissue.
As you age, the concentration of GHK-Cu in the body decreases drastically; thus, there is an increase in inflammation, cancerous activity, and tissue destruction – making this peptide, GHK-Cu, a necessity for anti-aging. Clinically, it is mainly used to decrease fine lines and wrinkles and to improve hair regrowth.
This peptide helps to regulate metabolism in the epiphysis, increase the sensitivity of the hypothalamus to its natural hormonal influences, normalize the function of the anterior pituitary, regulate the levels of gonadotropins and melatonin in the body. Epithalamion increases a person’s resistance to emotional stress and acts as an antioxidant.
You can expect fat loss, increased lean muscle mass, better lipid profiles, better deep-wave sleep, and improved repair and recovery.
Lower IGF-1 and growth hormones are often associated with excess body fat. IGF-1 can reverse insulin sensitivity, reducing weight and increasing metabolic expenditure. IGF-1 plays an essential role in childhood growth and continues to have anabolic effects in adults.
BPC stands for body protection compound isolated from human gastric juice, which helps accelerate wound healing. Additionally, BPC 157 has been shown to protect organs and aid in preventing gastric ulcers. BPC-157 acts systemically in the digestive tract to combat leaky gut, IBS, gastrointestinal cramps, and Crohn’s disease. Those who suffer from discomfort due to muscle sprains, tears, and damage may benefit from treatment with this peptide.
This peptide has fat-reducing effects. It’s also believed to positively affect bone and cartilage and other regenerative properties associated with the growth hormone.
How Much Does a Peptide Therapy Cost?
Every patient is different, so we recommend a consultation to determine the cost of your peptide therapy treatment. Our experienced team of skin experts and medical providers can further discuss the treatment with you and determine if peptide therapy is right for you.
The treatment is tailored to your needs, which is why the cost varies. Our team can customize a package to help you obtain the desired results. A consultation with our staff will ensure more accurate pricing.
Injections are the most popular way to deliver peptides into the body. Injections allow the peptide to be delivered into the bloodstream faster and therefore be used by the body more efficiently.
Both treatments can strengthen muscles, reduce fat, and improve the adult body. And both treatments are often injected. However, there are differences between the two. For example, whereas HGH uses hormones, peptides use proteins that stimulate the body’s natural production of human growth hormones.
Since peptides are pure amino acids, the body easily breaks them down, and there are few adverse reactions. As a result, most patients don’t experience any side effects from peptide therapies.
No. There isn’t any real need to alter your daily routine when proceeding with peptide therapy. Yet you may enhance their benefits by maintaining a healthy diet, staying active, getting plenty of sleep, and reducing stress.
