Growth Hormone Deficiency (HGH)

As we age, the amount of growth hormone secreted by our pituitary gland naturally declines. Men and women begin experiencing declines in growth hormone production by age 30. By age 50, blood levels of growth hormone are one-third to one-half lower than they are in people ages 18 to 35. This drop also coincides with the reduced muscle mass and increased body fat that happens with aging. In fact, many of the objective signs of symptoms of aging can be attributed to hormonal decline, in particular growth hormone decline. Many Men and Women are introducing HGH to their aesthetic routine, as the treatment results in thicker, more elastic, voluminous tissues and plays an adjunctive role in cosmetic filler procedures and skin health maintenance.

Growth Hormone administration has been replaced with the much more physiologic and side-effect reduced Peptide Therapy.

The Benefits of Treating Age-Related Growth Hormone Deficiency (ARGHD) include:

  • Increasing insulin sensitivity
  • Decreasing visceral fat
  • Increased bone density and reduction in the risk for osteoporosis
  • Increasing skeletal muscle mass
  • Increased athletic performance
  • Increased energy and sense of well-being
  • Improvement in mental fog
  • Increasing skin thickness and elasticity and health
  • Cellular repair, regeneration, and accelerated growth
  • Slowing, suspending, or reversing the effects of aging.
  • Increase in subjective and objective indicators of life quality.
