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
- Sleep quality
- Exercise and athletic performance
- Skin health and quality
- Wound healing
- Heart health
- Bone density
- Energy levels
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 in Atlanta?
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 antiaging 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.
