Peptide Therapy Los Angeles
Hair loss can occur for several reasons. Whether caused by aging, genetics, hormonal changes, medications, stress, or wearing tight hairstyles for a prolonged period, hair loss is a common cause of frustration and insecurity.
If you’re concerned about hair loss, peptide therapy could be an effective, non-surgical treatment option that could slow, stop or even reverse the hair loss process and help you restore a fuller head of hair.
What are Peptides and How Do They Treat Hair Loss?
Peptides are fast-acting amino acids that are naturally produced by our body, but can also be manufactured synthetically by pharmaceutical companies. As the building blocks for proteins, peptide amino acids are essential to being able to produce proteins which are integral to growing strong and healthy hair, such as collagen and elastin.
Peptide therapy works by delivering additional peptides directly to the scalp to stimulate cellular regrowth systems and fight hair loss. Administered as either peptide therapy injections or as a serum which is massaged into the scalp, peptide therapy can help to treat hair loss by:
Most Common Peptide Treatments for Hair Loss
Copper peptide treatment
The copper-binding peptide GHK-Cu is known to provide numerous beneficial biological actions, but it performs several functions which make it a particularly effective peptide for the treatment of hair loss.
Peptide therapy with GHK-Cu can be an effective treatment because of its ability to:
Sermorelin peptide therapy
Often used in various anti-aging treatments, sermorelin peptide therapy can also be an effective way to treat hair loss.
After the age of 30, our bodies naturally experience a decline in the production of human growth hormone (hGH). For some people, this change can result in various aging symptoms including thinning hair and hair loss.
The release of hGH is controlled by a molecule called growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH). Sermorelin is a synthetic form of GHRH that can be injected to stimulate the pituitary gland to release human growth hormone (hGH), and in turn, encourage sermorelin hair growth.
Combining Peptide Treatment with PRP Therapy
Many of our patients choose to combine peptide treatment with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy to stimulate the scalp more intensively and achieve the best possible result.
During a private consultation at Burbank Hair Transplant, your doctor will advise whether combined peptide-PRP therapy will be a suitable treatment option for you.
Common Questions About Peptide Hair Loss Treatments
The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have approved well over 200 therapeutic proteins and peptides for clinical use since the early 1980s. The various benefits of peptide therapy are becoming more widely recognized and the FDA continues to provide approval of more peptides for clinical use each year.
Patients will require regular ongoing treatment to be able to achieve sustained results. For patients who desire a more permanent hair restoration solution, we would recommend considering other treatment options such as follicular unit extraction (FUE).
