Peptides for Wellness and Weight Loss
Reach your optimal health and fitness with a boost from peptide therapies at your McAllen med spa.
Peptides are strings of amino acids that occur naturally in the body. They help to facilitate a variety of different functions, from boosting cellular growth to fighting inflammation. Thanks to their wide range of uses in the body, peptide therapies are used for a wide variety of medical and cosmetic purposes, including sleep regulation, weight management, and immune support.
Uptown Wellness offers a variety of different peptide therapies, and each has its own unique benefits and advantages.
Peptides provide several different health boosts in the body thanks to their ability to pump up the production of human growth hormones (HGH). While some patients take HGH directly for its health and fitness-boosting effects, it can be expensive and comes with other drawbacks. Peptides offer a more convenient way to see these benefits.
HGH supports health and fitness in several ways: by stimulating cellular growth and recovery, promoting fat loss and muscle growth, and maintaining an optimal metabolism.
Peptides come in a wide range of forms, and each has unique strengths. A few of the awesome benefits that you can get from different peptide therapies offered at Uptown Medical Wellness and Anti-Aging Center:
There are many different types of peptides that can offer powerful health and fitness advantages for patients, and deciding which is right for you will require the assistance of a physician, something we offer here at Uptown.
For an immune system and overall health boost, we often recommend Sermorelin, which can also help with metabolism. For weight loss, we tend toward AOD 9604 and CJC 1925 peptide therapies, but semaglutide is another potent option.
While there may be some discomfort when your peptides are administered, there are virtually no side effects of peptide therapy, though some may experience an allergic reaction. Our peptide therapies are physician-directed, but your peptide injection will be administered by a med spa clinician. Peptides are given via subcutaneous injections, meaning injections beneath the skin. You may receive peptide therapy up to multiple times per week.
