Peptide Therapy

Peptide therapy is a revolutionary treatment that uses these cellular messengers to improve body functioning and enhance overall performance. Peptides can be administered as supplements, ointments, or injections. 

These molecules target specific health concerns, such as inflammation, hormonal imbalance, premature aging, hair loss, and sleep disorders. Preventus Concierge Medicine aims to offer the most advanced treatments available to optimize your well-being. 

Understanding Peptides

Peptides are small molecules made up of the building blocks of proteins, also called amino acids. They are smaller than proteins, typically composed of 2 to 50 amino acids. 

The human body contains thousands of peptides, each with a specific function. This specificity allows for targeted actions, making peptides highly effective in their respective roles. 

Peptides are an indicator of not only health but also potential diseases. They are constantly used as a marker to identify any health issues since any changes in their levels can be a signal of a health issue.

Any changes in their levels can be a sign of a health issue, making them an essential tool in diagnostics and treatment. 

How Peptide Therapy Works

Peptide therapy is an innovative approach to health that targets specific issues caused by the decline of natural peptide production in your body. As your body ages, its natural ability to produce peptides declines. This is also exacerbated by external factors like a poor diet, environmental toxins, and stress.  

A decrease in peptides leads to issues like premature aging, reduced healing capacity, and decreased overall vitality. 

By medically administering peptides into your bloodstream, this therapy is able to target specific health goals, like the production of growth hormones, enhancing physical performance, and speeding up recovery after an injury. 

Benefits of Peptide Therapy

The specific peptide used for you will depend on the desired effect and your unique needs. Here is a list of situations where peptide therapy can help:

  • Decrease inflammation: Peptides possess anti-inflammatory properties, helping to reduce inflammation throughout the body, which is crucial for optimal health and healing.
  • Support healing processes: Peptide therapy accelerates the healing of tissues, muscles, and tendons, promoting faster recovery from injuries and surgeries.
  • Promote weight loss: Some peptides can aid in weight management by boosting metabolism, increasing fat burning, and supporting the development of lean muscle mass.
  • Enhance hair growth: Peptides can stimulate hair follicles, promoting healthy hair growth and combating hair loss.
  • Anti-aging benefits: Peptide therapy can help reduce visible signs of aging by improving skin elasticity, hydration, and collagen production.
  • Optimize hormonal balance: Peptides can regulate hormone production, enhancing hormonal balance and improving overall well-being.
  • Boost energy, stamina, and strength: Peptides play a role in energy production, supporting increased levels of energy, stamina, and physical performance.
  • Improve cognitive function: Some peptides have neuroprotective effects, enhancing cognitive function, memory, and focus.
  • Enhance sleep quality: Peptide therapy can help regulate sleep patterns, promoting restful and rejuvenating sleep.
  • Boost immune function: Peptides aid in strengthening the immune system, improving overall immunity.
  • Improve GI tract microbiome: Some peptides improve GI tract microbiomes and modulate the immune response. 

What to Expect From Peptide Therapy

After a thorough evaluation of your medical records and health profile, we will develop a treatment plan tailored to your unique needs. 

Peptide therapy can be administered through multiple methods. Whether you prioritize prompt results or would like to try a non-invasive method to incorporate into your daily routine, our providers will make sure to choose the right kind for you. 

Some administration methods include: 

  • Subcutaneous injections: These are an effective way to insert peptides into your bloodstream, enhancing their efficacy and accelerating their absorption. 
  • Topical creams: By applying your peptide cream directly to your skin, these are absorbed transdermally without pain or disruption.
  • Oral capsules or troches: When taken in capsule form, peptides are absorbed through the digestive system. With troches or dissolving tables, peptides have a direct entry into the bloodstream. 

It is common to begin experiencing the benefits of peptide therapy during the initial weeks, with a gradual increase throughout the complete period of the treatment (3 to 6 months). 

Depending on your specific goals, we may advise you to combine your peptide therapy treatment with other strategies to optimize your results. These may include hormone therapy (HRT)testosterone replacement therapy (TRT), customized diet plans, and medical weight loss treatments. 

Potential Risks and Side Effects of Peptide Therapy

When administered with the guidance of a qualified provider, peptide therapy is considered generally safe. 

As with any other treatment, minor side effects and potential risks can appear. Some of them include:

  • Allergic reactions like swelling or hives
  • Discomfort in the injection site
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Interaction with other medications

During your initial consultation, we will make sure to take into consideration all your medical history to develop a peptide therapy plan that fits your needs.
