What Exactly is Peptide Therapy?
Peptides are short-chain amino acids found naturally in the body.  These acids are highly important as they help perform vital functions in the body. Having therapy with peptides directs other cells what to do by replacing or mimicking the functions of the naturally occurring peptides. These peptides have the power to rewrite cell chemistry and promote restoration, encourage anabolism, and enhance homeostasis. For instance, some peptides have helped people to lose weight by stimulating the breakdown of visceral fat.
As of January 2015, there were over 60 FDA-approved peptide medications. Some of these drugs can be administered intravenously, topical cream, nasal spray, or oral tablets. Here are some examples: 
Similar to the atomic structure found in growth hormone-releasing hormones like Sermorelin, this elixir is a new and improved version that stimulates your pituitary gland. The formula is composed of 29 key amino acids. They have the power to spur growth hormone levels in adult patients. It can enhance the physical and mental peaks that the patient can achieve, along with improved lean muscle mass, reduction of fat stores, and slowing down the aging process.
Dr. Asandra will prescribe CJC-1295 to be taken at least 30 minutes before you go to bed. We recommend taking it at night to maximize the body’s natural hormonal cycles during your REM sleep. Patients should not take it if they are pregnant or breastfeeding.
BPC-157 is a naturally occurring protective protein found in the stomach. This therapy has helped countless patients break free from the nagging realities of joint pain, injuries, and organ damage. It vastly improves joint mobility by accelerating angiogenic repair, a process where newly formed blood vessels create granulation tissue.
This is a highly potent, long-acting, oral growth hormone supplement. Its chemical makeup mimics the growth hormone stimulating action of the hormone ghrelin—making it highly useful for patients looking to add lean muscle and mass. It can be used in conjunction with hormone replacement therapy to enhance its effects. Patients have also enjoyed better sleep, higher bone density, and increased libido.
This bioidentical hormone therapy is safe and effective. It allows patients to enjoy the feelings of looking young again. Considered to be a Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide (GHRP), this formula is composed of five amino acids that stimulate the pituitary gland release of natural growth hormones and suppress somatostatin, a growth inhibiting hormone. Patients have enjoyed Ipamorelin Acetate for its ability to burn fat, increase muscle and bone mass, and strengthen the cardiovascular system.

How will Peptide Therapy Work?
The therapy can be administered in several ways. They can be ingested, applied to the skin, inhaled through a nasal spray. While it takes on many forms the most common way to administer the peptide is through injections. This is because it enters the bloodstream at a faster rate and can be utilized by the body quicker. Regardless of the method, each type of peptide offers its unique way of application depending on its use. The exact method will be determined by Dr. Asandra.
First, the treatment can either be administered at our medical office or at the convenience of your home through a Certified Peptide Therapist. The PT formula goes through the pituitary gland to increase the production of growth hormones and regulate your immune system. The added hormones will improve your sex drive, energy mental acuity. It increases collagen production that leaves your skin feeling silky smooth.
Results & Recovery
Patients should start to see significant improvements in their bodies within the first month of therapy. However, full effects are noticed within six months of treatment. Patients have noted that they have a clearer mind, greater contentment, and enjoy a better outlook on life. Later on in the treatment, you’ll begin to notice a significant increase in your body’s shape and muscle mass.
How Much Does Peptide Therapy Cost in Los Angeles?
Dr. Asandra wants to help you reach your potential. During your private consultation, the details of the final cost will be discussed. The cost will vary from person to person. Factors to take into consideration are the extent of your condition and the type of your treatment.
Can PT benefit bodybuilders and athletes?
Yes! Peptide therapy has grown in popularity in fitness circles. It can help the fitness community gain a competitive edge as the effects of age can slow things down.
Is Peptide Therapy safe?
Peptide contains naturally present ingredients that have helped numerous patients look and feel young again. Be assured that the treatment has the backing of the FDA. Patients who are having injection treatments will need to do it every day but this can be reduced as determined by Dr. Asandra.
Is Peptide good for you?
Peptide allows for the healthy production of growth hormones in the body. They are important for our growth, cell regeneration, and production. With PT, the body can enrich hormone levels that were similar to when you were younger. It provides the aging body with increased muscle mass and a boosted metabolism which helps burn fat.
Is PT a steroid?
It is easy to mix the two as they both provide patients with increased muscle mass and density. However, their chemical composition is remarkably different. While steroids increase muscle, it comes with a host of side effects that PT doesn’t have. With steroid use, you may feel bouts of anger, develop female-like breasts, and the hormonal imbalance is much more evident.
