Peptide Therapy

Overall health and wellness is something many people want to achieve but don’t always know where to start. At Balanced Aesthetics Medspa, we’ve got your answers, which may include peptide therapy. This next-level treatment offers remarkable improvements to a variety of health concerns.

We’ve all heard of hormone replacement therapy and balance, which helps restore our body’s natural functions through regulating hormone levels. Peptides work much the same. This exciting science identifies which amino acid sequences, called peptides, communicate to different areas of the body to maintain proper balance and function. It works by binding receptors on the cells’ surfaces for highly specific actions, improving our overall health and wellness, or even enhancing certain body functions. Because peptides are natural to our bodies, they’re very well-tolerated and incredibly safe.

What Peptide Therapies are Available?

At Balanced Aesthetics, we have the following peptide therapies to enhance our client’s overall health and wellness:

CATEGORY: Optimal Health

The liver produces IGF-1 to work in concert with insulin to determine what type of fuel the body uses at a given time. IGF-1 helps transfer glucose through cell membranes for growth and repair of muscle, nerve, and heart cells. Over time, if the liver becomes too fatty, production of IGF-1 suffers, putting more dependence on insulin, which can eventually lead to diabetes. Boosting the IGF-1 peptide keeps insulin balanced as well as providing a host of other benefits.

Benefits include:

  • Reduced body fat with enhanced fat burning
  • Increased muscle mass and strength
  • Improved energy and physical stamina
  • Better sleep and lower incidence of insomnia
  • Enhanced cognitive function
  • Improved calcium retention and better bone density
  • Improved skin elasticity
  • Strengthened connective tissue and repair after injury

CATEGORY: Weight Management

CJC-1295 is a 30 amino acid peptide hormone that has shown incredibly promising results as a Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone (GHRH) analog. CJC-1295 stimulates HGH secretion and can provide a steady increase of HGH with minimal effect on cortisol and prolactin levels. This means increased protein synthesis, thus promoting growth and fat loss simultaneously. Ipamorelin mimics ghrelin and binds to the ghrelin receptor (or GH secretagogue receptor, GHSR) in the brain, thereby selectively stimulating the release of GH from the pituitary gland. This results in increased plasma GH levels, which would affect many biological processes. Unlike other GH-releasing peptides, Ipamorelin only stimulates GH release in a manner very similar to that of Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone. This combination results in a great aid for sleep, energy, stamina, and recovery benefits.

Benefits include:

  • Increased protein synthesis
  • Promotes fat burning
