Peptide Therapy Scottsdale

In recent years, the use of peptides in health care has gained much popularity. Peptide therapy is generally considered safe and can be used to produce very specific effects. Many peptides have been approved by the FDA allowing them to be utilized for medical trials and use. As the body ages, a decline in the production of growth hormone, as well as other hormones in the body, can affect how fast the body can recover from injury and how well the skin and body’s various systems maintain their youthful age and function. Some substances can even help increase connective tissue repair, and many of these substances are known as peptides.

What are Peptides?

Peptides are chains of amino acids. These are linked together in a specific process to produce a protein. Some peptides are naturally occurring and others can be artificially synthesized in the laboratory. The body uses these proteins or peptides as signaling molecules facilitating the cell-to-cell communication and allowing the body to switch certain cell functions on or off. This property can be harnessed and used to trigger specific therapeutic effects. The FDA has even approved a number of specific peptide medications, and there are several more that are involved in clinical trials or that are undergoing development to assist with treating the loss of production in peptides that often comes with age. Of course, in order to understand these therapies and how they are effective, you need to first understand the process of peptide therapy.

What is Peptide Therapy?

Peptide therapy is the targeted use of peptides to produce a specific reaction in the body. Some peptides have been shown to assist with weight loss by stimulating the breakdown of visceral fat. They may also be utilized to reduce inflammation. Some peptides stimulate the production of human growth hormone and are utilized in anti-aging therapies or to increase muscle mass. Depending on the type of peptide therapy needed and your preferences, there are multiple options for administering this type of therapy. Peptides are typically administered through the skin as a subcutaneous injection. They can also be applied in a cream, a nasal spray or in oral form.

Who May Benefit From Peptide Therapy?

Peptides may help regulate processes within the body. Patients with Lyme disease, chronic inflammation, autoimmune disease, and other chronic degenerative diseases may benefit from including peptides in their treatment regimen.

AOD 9064 Peptide

AOD-9604 (Advanced Obesity Drug) was originally developed by Professor Franklin Ng at Monash University in Australia, with the intent of finding an anti-obesity drug that had the fat burning effects of human growth hormone (HGH) without the muscle-building effect. Investigators at Monash University discovered that the fat-reducing effects of HGH appear to be controlled by a small region near one end of the HGH molecule. This region, which consists of amino acids 177-191, is less than 10% of the total size of the HGH molecule and appears to have no effect on growth or insulin resistance. It works by mimicking the way natural HGH regulates fat metabolism but without the adverse effects on blood sugar or growth that is seen with unmodified HGH.

Bremelanotide PT 141

Bremelanotide PT 141 is a peptide that is used to assist with increased sexual desire in both men and women. It is desirable because it has shown to have these effects without also having adverse effects on the vascular system. PT 141 can boost energy and increase the sex drive, and in 2019 this was actually approved as the FDA as a treatment option for premenopausal women who are diagnosed with hypoactive sexual desire disorder, used under the Vyleesi brand name.

CJC 1295

CJC-1295/Ipamorelin has been shown to assist with the release of IGF-1 and HGH (Human Growth Hormone), which helps reduce the fat in the body by forcing the body to burn fat for energy. It also assists with cellular regeneration and repair, as well as with collagen production in the body.


This is a synthetic peptide that was developed as an anti-aging drug. It is based on the natural peptide Epithalamin and can regulate the cell cycles to promote impressive anti-aging benefits in a number of cases. It is known for stimulating melatonin production and activating the telomerase enzyme in the body.


This peptide has been shown to have antimicrobial and anti-biofilm properties, giving it the benefit of being used in peptide therapy to aid in the reduction of inflammation and even the ability to assist in reducing the risk of autoimmune disease.

Melanotan II

This peptide is a synthetic reproduction of a hormone that is known to stimulate the release of alpha-MSH, which can cause melanin production, which creates a tanning effect. This peptide can be used to treat pigment disorders and other conditions related to melatonin production, and also has reported aphrodisiac effects.

Thymosin Alpha 1

This peptide has been around for a number of years and has been popular for offering a variety of immunostimulatory properties, including its ability to promote healing and stave off autoimmune conditions. It has even been used to assist with reducing the risk of cancer and helping to treat existing cancer patients.

Thymosin Beta 4

Thymosin Beta 4 is a peptide that is responsible for promoting skin cell, muscle cell, and blood vessel migration and regeneration. This creates more effective, faster healing from wounds and injuries. The thymus gland is responsible for stimulating this substance.
