Understanding Peptides

Peptides are a class of biomolecules that consist of two or more amino acids linked together. They are present in all living organisms and perform various functions, including structural, regulatory, and signaling roles. Peptides are small and can easily cross the blood-brain barrier, making them ideal for targeting specific tissues and organs. Peptides are also incredibly effective at activating or inhibiting specific signaling pathways.

How Peptide Therapy Works

Peptide therapy involves the administration of specific peptides to stimulate or inhibit specific bodily processes. Peptides can treat hormonal imbalances, autoimmune disorders, and neurological conditions. GH-releasing peptides (GHRPs) can stimulate the production of growth hormone, which is important for maintaining muscle mass and bone density. Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) can regulate thyroid function, and peptides such as insulin can regulate glucose levels in the body. Each peptide therapy is specifically designed to target your health conditions.

Optimize Health & Wellness

Peptides can interact with your hormones and regulate most bodily processes, including immunity, digestive system, brain, scalp health, muscle mass, and bone density. Depending on your unique goals, our medical providers offer personalized peptides to regulate your hormones and underlying physiological processes, helping you achieve and maintain optimal health. Instead of targeting specific symptoms as they arise, peptide therapy allows us to balance and heal your body from within.

Anesthesia: Topical (Optional)

Peptide therapy does not require anesthesia because the injections are not painful. In some cases, a numbing cream may be applied to reduce discomfort, but it’s not essential.

Duration: 15 to 30 Minutes

A peptide therapy session typically ranges from 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the number of injections and the specific peptide used.

The Experience

Your peptide therapy experience depends on your specific goals and delivery method. We administer peptide therapy as injections, usually delivered in the arm, thigh, or abdomen. Our medical providers will discuss your goals, review your medical history, understand your symptoms, and curate a personalized treatment plan. The number of injections you need depends on your goals. However, the treatment is safe and painless.

Side Effects: Minimal

Peptide therapy is generally well-tolerated and has few side effects. The most common side effects of peptide therapy are mild and include redness, swelling, and soreness at the injection site. These side effects usually resolve within a few days.

Downtime: None

Peptide therapy doesn’t involve any downtime. You can resume your daily activities and work immediately, but you should avoid strenuous workouts for a day.
