Antiaging Treatment With Peptides to Improve HGH Levels

Peptide therapy is a prescription treatment used to naturally increase human growth hormone (hGH) in adult men and women with low hGH. HGH levels decrease with age and research tells us that hGH can decrease by as much as 50% in males every 7 years after the age of 18-25 (depending on the individual). In women, hGH levels start to decline at middle age. HGH is an important hormone for many functions, including the growth and repair of cells and tissue throughout the body. Low hGH levels can lead to loss of muscle mass, low sex drive, and poor sleep quality.

Peptides are FDA-approved to treat children with growth hormone deficiency disorders, and extensive research shows that they are safe and effective to use in adults. When prescribed and administered by a board-certified physician, peptides may help restore hGH levels to treat symptoms of aging.

How Peptides Restore Optimal HGH Levels

The pituitary gland is a tiny structure in the brain that produces and releases hGH. With age, the pituitary gland secretes less growth hormone. Peptides are a synthetic substance that imitates growth hormone-releasing hormones and stimulates the pituitary gland to produce and secrete growth hormone, allowing the body to naturally increase GH levels.

Peptide treatment is different from hGH injections because it does not replace hGH directly. Instead, it triggers the body’s natural process of producing and releasing growth hormone.

What are the Benefits of Peptide Therapy?

Peptides allows the body to heal itself by naturally correcting hormone imbalances and deficiencies. Because they naturally stimulates the release of GH, it is not associated with the risks that hGH injections are known to cause.

Peptide injections may help improve:

  • Memory and cognitive function
  • Sexual performance
  • Weight Loss
  • Sleep quality
  • Exercise and athletic performance
  • Skin health and quality
  • Wound healing
  • Heart health
  • Bone density
  • Energy levels

Peptides for erectile dysfunction

Peptides have been shown to be effective in treating erectile dysfunction. They work by increasing the levels of testosterone and other hormones in the body, which can lead to improved sexual function. Peptides are also thought to improve blood flow to the penis, which can help to achieve and maintain an erection.


One of the peptides used in the treatment of erectile dysfunction is called PT-141. This peptide works by stimulating the release of nitric oxide, which relaxes the smooth muscle cells and allows for increased blood flow to the penis. Increased blood flow and nitric oxide levels are essential for achieving and maintaining an erection. PT-141 is an injectable peptide that has been shown to be effective in men with both psychological and physical causes of erectile dysfunction. In addition, this peptide is non-toxic and does not interact with other medications.


BPC-157 is another peptide that has been shown to be effective in the treatment of erectile dysfunction. It works by promoting tissue repair and regeneration, which can improve blood flow and help to resolve erectile issues. Additionally, BPC-157 has been shown to reduce inflammation, which is often a contributing factor in ED.

Peptides for weight loss

Peptides are also becoming increasingly popular as a way to help people lose weight. Medical weight loss peptides are typically injected, and they work by mimicking the action of hormones that regulate appetite. When injected, weight loss peptides help to suppress hunger and reduce the amount of food consumed. In addition, they can also assist with cell signaling, increase metabolism and promote fat burning. Peptides for weight loss are most effective when used in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise program. However, they can also be used on their own to help people lose weight.


Tirzepatide is a new weight loss peptide that works by interacting with the appetite-regulating hormones in the brain, which leads to reduced food intake and increased satiety. In addition, tirzepatide also reduces the number of fat cells in the body, which leads to weight loss.


Semaglutide is a medication that has been shown to be effective for weight loss. It works by increasing the release of a hormone called GLP-1, which helps to control hunger. Semaglutide also increases metabolism and fat burning, which can further contribute to weight loss.

What to expect in your first six months of peptide therapy?

Some patients may notice a difference in their skin and body within the first month of therapy. However, the full range of benefits is typically seen within three to six months.

Month 1

Deeper, more restful sleep, and an increase in energy. Peptides work by stimulating the production of important hormones.

Month 2

Reduced belly fat, improved skin and reduced wrinkles. This is due to the increased hormone levels, which help to build new muscle tissue.

Month 3

Cognitive improvements such as reduced anxiety, increased sex drive, better mood, mental focus and confidence.

Month 4

Continued benefits, including increased energy levels, weight reduction, and healthy skin. This is because peptides help to increase metabolism and burn fat more efficiently.

Month 5

Noticeably healthier, fuller hair, and improved skin tone. Significant overall improvements in their skin quality. Peptides help to stimulate collagen production, resulting in firmer, more youthful-looking skin.

Month 6

Improvement in overall health and fitness level including increased endurance and lean muscle. 5-10% decrease in belly fat, and increased vitality.

Peptides provide a wide range of health and anti-aging benefits that continue to increase over time.

Add Peptides to Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) for Improved Results

Peptides may also improve outcomes of testosterone replacement therapy. HGH that has been secreted naturally with the use of peptides can help boost the positive effects of TRT and may even minimize the treatment’s side effects. They also help the body maintain proper hormone balance.

How Much Does Peptide Therapy Cost?

The cost of peptide treatment will vary from patient to patient because treatment needs are different for everyone. Your doctor will make recommendations and create your treatment plan according to your consultation and the results of your lab work tests.

Even though peptides are not covered by insurance for anti-aging purposes, our patients see dramatic improvements in their quality of life that outweigh any costs of treatment.

Is Peptide Treatment Right for You?

Peptide treatment may help men and women who have low levels of hGH and struggle with symptoms of aging, decreased sexual performance, low bone density (this can increase the risk of osteoporosis), and joint deterioration.

Not everyone experiences the same benefits of peptide therapy. Some people respond better than others. Peptides may not be right for men or women with certain conditions, such as an underactive thyroid. Before starting any treatment protocol, it’s important to tell your doctor what medications you’re currently taking, and if you’ve been diagnosed with any medical conditions. Our doctors prescribe peptides to patients only after completing a thorough consultation and lab work.
