Peptide therapy injections can make a world of difference to so many people on their health and wellness journey. But without the right care, treatment won’t be as effective. Peptide therapy practitioners need to be educated in functional medicine and understand the specificities of hormone therapy. We've curated a list of our "go-to" practitioners who are well-versed in peptide therapy and who you can trust to point you in the right direction.
Getting started with peptide therapy begins with asking the right questions.
What is peptide therapy?
Peptide therapy is similar to hormone therapy but is used for more specific outcomes. Different peptides can be injected into the skin to reach certain wellness goals. These injections are safe and may have fewer negative side effects than other similar forms of therapy. Currently, there are over 140 FDA-approved peptide medications that are used in MedSpas across the country. Although most peptide therapy is delivered through injections, you may also encounter some topical creams with varying degrees of use-cases.
What can peptide injections be used for?
Because there are so many different forms of peptides, peptide therapy can be used to treat and prevent a variety of conditions. In fact, some people choose to use peptide therapy to improve overall wellness. On the other hand, some people use peptide injections for weight loss or anti-aging peptide injections.
Peptide injections can be used to help with:
- Weight management
Of course, to know whether or not peptide injections will be effective for you, you should consult with a medical professional. A licensed professional can help identify where you may have certain deficiencies and then what specific peptides can help you reach your wellness goals.
