As the body goes through the natural aging process, many people experience a decrease in energy levels, immune function, and a decrease in sleep quality. Age can also affect our aesthetic appearance as the skin loses its elasticity and structure, which causes skin to sag and contributes to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. Dr. Daniela Dadurian is committed to providing her patients with a variety of anti-aging treatments, including Tesamorelin treatments, which can combat the effects of age and improve your overall quality of life.

What is Tesamorelin?
Tesamorelin is a growth hormone releasing hormone analog that works on your pituitary to increase growth hormone naturally. It mimics a natural hormone produced by the hypothalamus and tells your body that it needs to produce natural and healthy levels of growth hormone. Peptides like this have been used for years, however, Tesamorelin yields better blood levels and efficacy. As a result, it has been an FDA approved drug for 7 years. It has been shown to increase IGF-1 levels by an average of 181 micrograms/liter. It also has a host of other benefits including nootropic effects and reducing triglycerides. Additionally, there are studies documenting its effect to decrease carotid intima-media thickness (cIMT), visceral adipose tissue (VAT), and C-reactive proteins (CRP).Tesamorelin is a minimally-invasive treatment administered as a daily injection directly beneath the skin and can be used to rejuvenate and strengthen bone mass, joints, and connective tissue, as well as increase muscle strength and stimulate the metabolism. This growth hormone releasing hormone can also improve the function of the immune system, improve sleep quality, and boost mood levels.
