When you get older, your production of peptides will slow down. This natural change can cause you to lose muscle and gain weight. In addition, you may develop wrinkles, and your sex drive is likely to decrease. At the Balanced Bodies Anti-Aging Clinic in Sandy Springs and Lawrenceville, GA, we can use peptide therapy to address all of these problems.
What is Peptide Therapy?
Peptide therapy is an innovative treatment that can address fatigue, injuries, weight gain, and many other health conditions. Gaining an understanding of peptides will help you appreciate the benefits of this unique treatment.
Peptides are naturally-occurring substances that are made of short chains of amino acids. Peptide bonds hold these chains together. Your body contains many different types of peptides. Each of these peptides has a unique chemical structure. Some of these peptides will resemble hormones, and others will act more like neurotransmitters.
As you get older, your production of peptides will start to decline. This change can make it difficult for you to recover after you exercise. In addition, you might begin to have difficulty controlling your weight.
We can address these symptoms by improving your peptide levels. During your peptide therapy, we will provide you with medications that mimic the behavior of your natural peptides. These medications can improve your libido, enhance the appearance of your skin, promote your natural healing abilities, and achieve many other goals.
We may provide you with oral medications during your treatment plan. These medications might be in the form of capsules or dissolvable tablets. Alternatively, we may instruct you to receive peptide injections. If you would like to reduce wrinkles and improve your skin, we may advise you to use peptide moisturizers and creams to achieve these goals. You will usually take your peptides for five to seven days every week.
Improving Your Health
In addition to telling you to take peptides, we will advise you to practice healthy habits. In particular, we may instruct you to adjust your diet and begin an exercise program. Following these habits will enhance the impact of your treatment and allow you to achieve more noticeable results.
What Issues Can Peptide Therapy Improve?
Although peptide treatments are a relatively new type of therapy, there are already more than a hundred FDA-approved peptide medications. Further, there are many more medications that are currently going through clinical trials.
At the Balanced Bodies Anti-Aging Clinic, we can use peptides to address a wide variety of health problems and aesthetic issues. After we have reviewed your medical history and discussed your negative symptoms, we will design a customized peptide program for you.
Healing Your Injuries
If you have experienced muscle tears, sprains, and other health issues, we may advise you to receive a peptide called BPC 157. Scientific research has shown that this useful peptide can improve your ability to repair your tendons, ligaments, and bones. Further, this peptide may lower your risk of developing an ulcer and protect your organs.
This peptide can also help you heal after a burn. BPC 157 will increase the blood flow that nourishes your tissues and improve your comfort levels while you are recovering from your injury.
Improving Your Metabolism
If you would like to sculpt your body and reduce your unwanted fat, we may give you a peptide called AOD 9604. This peptide contains 15 powerful amino acids. Scientific research has shown that these amino acids have strong fat-burning abilities. Taking this useful peptide can increase the speed of your metabolism and help you burn away fat on your stomach.
When you use AOD 9604 to improve your health, this peptide will help you shed extra fat cells without harming your blood sugar or cortisol levels. In addition, this peptide will not damage your insulin levels. As a result, AOD 9604 can help you reduce your fat deposits in an effective, gentle manner.
Boosting Your Immune System
We can use a peptide called thymosin alpha 1 to boost your immune system. Your thymus gland naturally produces this unique peptide. Thymosin alpha 1 can protect you from oxidative stress and improve chronic and acute infections. This peptide can also be used to address chronic fatigue, hepatitis, lupus, and Lyme disease. In addition, thymosin alpha 1 can treat rheumatoid arthritis and immune dysfunction.
Renewing Your Skin
When you age, you will start to make fewer collagen proteins. When you lose these important structural proteins, your skin will become more likely to fold and wrinkle. Developing creases and wrinkles can make you feel older than you really are. Fortunately, we can improve your look by providing you with a peptide called GHK-Cu. This peptide will improve the elasticity and firmness of your skin and decrease the depth and visibility of your lines.
GHK-Cu is a very effective skin treatment. Scientific research has shown that people experienced a 70% increase in collagen and a 35% decrease in wrinkles and lines after they used this peptide for three months.
Improving Your Sex Drive
As you become older, you may lose interest in sex and become unable to enjoy intimate activities with your partner. If you are a man, you might also have difficulty performing during sex. If you would like to restore your libido, you should consider receiving a peptide called Bremelanotide PT-141. This peptide will enhance your sexual arousal and improve your performance during intercourse.
Achieving a Natural Tan
Achieving a glowing tan will make you look youthful, attractive, and energic. Unfortunately, exposing your skin to the sun’s ultraviolet rays will age your tissues and cause you to develop sagging issues and wrinkles.
If you would like to achieve a tan without damaging your skin, you should take a peptide called Melanotan 2. This peptide will give your skin a tanned, attractive appearance and protect you from damaging ultra-violet rays. In addition to improving your skin, this treatment can be used to enhance your libido, decrease your appetite, and reduce your unwanted fat.
Healing Your Injuries
If you have recently experienced an injury, we may provide you with a peptide called Thymosin beta-4. This peptide, which is produced in your thymus, will help you repair, regenerate, and remodel damaged tissues.
Improving Your Production of Human Growth Hormone
If you are interested in improving your production of Human Grown Hormone (HGH), we may instruct you to take CJC 1295 and Ipamorelin. These peptides are both Growth Hormone Releasing Hormones. Once you begin taking these peptides, they will encourage your pituitary gland to secrete additional amounts of Human Growth Hormone.
These two peptides can increase your muscle mass and decrease your unnecessary fat. In addition, your sleep is likely to improve, and your sex drive will become stronger. To achieve the most significant benefits from CJC 1295 and Ipamorelin, you will probably need to receive this treatment for at least six months. During this time, we may advise you to take your peptides five times a week.
Addressing Other Problems
We can also use other types of peptides to improve your health. For example, we may ask you to take a peptide called Ibutamoren MK-677. This peptide can diminish your extra fat, improve your muscles, and help you recover from injuries. You will take this peptide once a day.
Similarly, we can use a peptide called Sermorelin to improve your sleep, enhance your sex drive, and reduce your body fat. This useful peptide will also enhance your cognitive abilities.
How Quickly Will This Treatment Work?
Although you will have a unique reaction to your peptide program, you will usually start to see the benefits of your treatment after several weeks have passed. At this point, your negative symptoms should begin to improve. For example, if you had very low energy levels, you should start to feel stronger and more vibrant. You will usually see the full effect of your program within three to six months.
Can I Use Other Techniques To Enhance My Wellbeing?
In addition to using peptide treatments to improve your health, we can use many other sophisticated methods to address your physical and emotional challenges.
Receiving Female Hormone Replacement Treatments
If you are a woman, your production of estrogen, testosterone, and other important hormones is likely to decline as you become older. You may begin to experience the symptoms of a hormonal imbalance when you are having menstrual periods or when you go through menopause. Your imbalanced hormones may cause you to have mood swings, gain weight, and experience night sweats. You may also have hot flashes and chronic fatigue.
We can use lab tests to analyze your hormone levels and design a specialized replacement program for you. For example, we may advise you to take bioidentical progesterone, estrogen, or testosterone hormones. These bioidentical hormones will improve your symptoms and enhance your energy levels.
Addressing Low Testosterone
If you are a man, you are likely to develop declining testosterone levels after you reach the age of 30. At this point in your life, you may gain weight, lose muscle mass, and develop sleeping issues. Your lowered testosterone levels can also cause you to become depressed and moody. We can address these health issues by improving your testosterone levels.
Depending on your needs, we may balance your hormones with weekly injections. In addition, we can provide you with customized gels and creams. These treatments will quickly correct your imbalanced hormones. As your hormone levels improve, you will be likely to lose weight and gain energy. Your insomnia and other negative symptoms will also improve.
Contouring Your Body
You will probably struggle to maintain a slim, fit body as you continue to age. Fortunately, we can use a minimally invasive technique to slim your figure and reduce pockets of unwanted fat. This technique, which is called Vanquish ME, will use thermal heat and radiofrequency energy to eliminate away some of your extra fat cells.
Try It for Yourself
You don’t have to gain weight, develop wrinkles, and experience other negative changes as you age. We can rejuvenate your look, improve your energy levels, and address other issues by providing you with a customized peptide therapy program.
