Peptides for Erectile Dysfunction – Orlando
Age-related decreases in hormones and protein levels can cause a wide range of symptoms, including erectile dysfunction. We now offer peptides and Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) to optimize hormone levels for healthier sexual function. For many men with erectile dysfunction, treatment can improve libido and restore healthy penile response.
What is Peptide Therapy?
Peptide therapy uses peptides to boost sexual function. Peptides are strings of amino acids (shortened protein chains) that help to build DNA, neural tissue, and hormone levels in the body. Thousands of peptides are found naturally in younger individuals, but these numbers tend to decline with age, which leads to weaker immune systems, decreased strength and stamina, decreased cognitive performance and memory, reduced neurotransmitter activity, and a lowered ability to regenerate and repair neurons. With peptide therapy, more peptides are put into the body to stimulate new neural activity in order to improve sexual function. At Amore Medical Spa, we offer PT-141 (also known as bremelanotide), a compounded peptide prescription, to improve libido for men struggling with erectile dysfunction.
What is Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)?
Throughout life, your hormone levels go through shifts and then gradually decline with age. Low hormone levels can significantly impact your overall health: for example, low testosterone has been linked to fatigue, weight gain, mood, decreased libido, and erectile dysfunction. Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is a natural treatment that can bring hormone levels to within the optimal range necessary for sexual function.
Erectile dysfunction may have medical or psychological causes. Contributing factors include poor circulation, hormonal imbalances, sedentary lifestyle, sitting activities such as horseback riding or cycling, obesity, poor diet, smoking, alcohol consumption, sleep apnea, stress, depression, anxiety, medications used to treat psychological problems, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, Peyronie’s Disease, enlarged prostate, and prostate cancer.
Because erectile dysfunction has a wide range of causes, there are different ways it can be treated. For example, GAINSWave® and the P-shot are designed to stimulate and restore blood flow to help the penis achieve and maintain an erection. Peptide therapy with PT-141 (bremelanotide), on the other hand, targets the nervous system to increase sex drive. Peptide treatments have been shown to increase sexual arousal within minutes or hours after treatment.
Peptide therapy and HRT have many benefits:
- Increase libido (sex drive)
- Correct erectile dysfunction
- Boost physical arousal
- Improve genital circulation
- Improve psychological well-being and brain health
- Prevent or reverse loss of muscle mass and bone mass
- Improve mood
- Enhance sleep quality
- Facilitate weight loss
- Increase energy
- Combat health conditions such as arthritis and chronic fatigue
- Improve skin, hair, and nail health
- Promote natural healing and immune system function
A consultation is required to determine whether you may be a candidate for ED treatment with peptide therapy and HRT. Here at Amore Medical Spa, we check far beyond routine lab work to get to the root cause of a hormone imbalance (if one is present) so that we can safely administer HRT.
Treatments may be offered as a prescription nasal spray or as an injectable. These are determined based on patient preference.
There is no recovery or downtime after peptide therapy. Patients can even enjoy sexual activities later that same day.
Peptide therapy have a very high safety factor because peptides are already naturally occurring in the body. The treatment mimics the body’s natural peptide structure so that it is well tolerated by most patients.
Many men who do not experience success with ED medications achieve positive results with peptide therapy and HRT.
In some patients, peptide treatments can increase sexual arousal within minutes or hours. Your current health, age, and the severity of your ED will be the best predictors of when you can expect to see results.
