Peptide Therapy & Wellness

"Peptide therapy has changed my life! Not many physicians offer it and I am so glad I found Dr. Batista."

Peptide therapy has been shown to help with many different types of conditions with a wide range of benefits. Peptides can be used to improve overall health, and even reverse some of the effects that come with aging. Some common conditions that peptides can help with include inflammation, weight management, growth hormones and even improving libido to name a few.

What is Peptide Therapy?

Peptide therapy is a type of medication which are composed of a combination of amino acid sequences.  Peptides work by “telling” the body to do a certain function.  There are peptides that are used specifically for optimizing human growth hormone levels.  Specifically, it tells the pituitary gland to release it’s own natural produced human growth hormone maximally.  The advantages of peptide therapy over actual human growth hormone is that you obtain all the benefits of HGH therapy without the side effects by enhancing the body’s own natural HGH release instead of administering an outside source of HGH.  Therefore, overdosing is impossible and suppression of the natural HGH production does not occur.  In addition, the cost of peptide therapy is much more reasonable that HGH therapy.

All our peptides are sourced by US-based, FDA approved peptide specific pharmacy which is under strict government monitoring and control. Peptide therapy should be prescribed by a licensed provider. Peptide therapy at Chicago Aesthetics is routinely monitored by our physicians, including regular blood tests, to prevent any potential side effects that may occur. Be wary of purchasing peptides online as they may be impure and/or counterfeit products.

What types of peptides are there?


CJC-1295 is an amino acid combination (or “peptide”) of 30 amino acids which acts to release growth hormone from the pituitary gland. It is often used in combination with insulin growth factor (IGF-1) or other peptides that cause a release of growth hormone such as Ipamorelin.   CJC 1295 increases the levels of growth hormone and increases cellular repair without increasing levels of prolactin which can occur with other HGH medications. CJC 1295 is a growth hormone releasing hormone peptide.  GHRH is released by the hypothalamus to act on the pituitary gland to maximally release a person’s natural growth hormone.


In order for your body to release growth hormone from your pituitary gland, your pituitary has to receive a signal from your hypothalamus in the form of a gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH).   Ipamorelin is a 5 sequence amino acid peptide “Growth hormone releasing peptide” (GhRP).  When administered, Ipamorelin prompts the pituitary gland to release growth hormone.  Because Ipamorelin works by stimulating your pituitary gland’s natural human growth hormone release, the side effects are minimal and overdosage is virtually impossible.   Ipamorelin is composed only of amino acids, no other synthetic or chemical additions.


Human Growth Hormone (HGH)

The human growth hormone (HGH) is produced by the pituitary gland and is a naturally occurring hormone important for growth, cell reproduction and cell regeneration. Human growth hormone is important for the maintenance, building, and repair of healthy tissue for different organs of the body, including the brain!  HGH helps in speeding up healing after injury and repairs muscle tissue after exercising. Human growth hormone also helps in the building of muscle mass, burning of fat, and boosts metabolism. In addition, growth hormone is also beneficial for the appearance and quality of skin, it slows down the process of aging, and treats diseases related to aging.
