Peptides Therapy is available at Dr. Shel in Sugar Land!

Dr. Shel Wellness & Aesthetic Center in Sugar Land offers peptides therapy, a great way to look, feel, and perform your best.

Peptides are smaller versions of proteins; they contain fewer amino acids than proteins. Since peptides are smaller, they may be easier for the body to digest and absorb than proteins. Because they penetrate the skin and intestines more efficiently, they enter the bloodstream more quickly.

There is increasing evidence that peptides may have a beneficial effect on slowing down aging, reducing inflammation, and killing microbes. Peptides have a more specific function; some peptides are specific for immune function, fat-burning, anti-wrinkling for the skin, and much more.

Discover how peptides therapy in Sugar Land, TX, can help you live your life to the fullest!

Ready to take your health and vitality to the next level? Try Peptide Therapy! This revolutionary treatment harnesses the power of peptides to help you lose fat, build muscle, and even slow down signs of aging.

Benefits of Peptides Therapy in Sugar Land

Dr. Shel Wellness & Aesthetic Center in Sugar Land provides peptides therapy. It’s an advanced wellness solution based on your specific needs. 

Peptides therapy aims to replace whatever is lost. Personalized peptide therapy gives your body exactly what it needs, so you can feel younger and achieve greater health and vitality.

Slows down aging

By reducing inflammation and blood pressure, and boosting the immune system, peptide therapy will diminish the adverse effects of aging.

Accelerates recovery from injuries

Peptides repair muscles, ligaments, and tendons. It also helps nerve healing and strengthens tissues to restore function faster.

Improves skin health

With peptides, you can be wrinkle-free and protect your skin from sun damage with their antimicrobial effects.

Promotes muscle growth

Peptides help you burn fat and build muscle mass, giving you more energy and enabling you to live life to the fullest.

Enhances sexual function

Both men and women benefit from peptide therapy when it comes to increasing libido, triggering sexual arousal, and improving sexual dysfunction.

Regulates mood

Using peptides therapy, mood is regulated, mental clarity is enhanced, memory and cognition are reinforced, and sleeping patterns are improved.

How Does Peptides Therapy in Sugar Land Work?

Peptides are short strings of amino acids that can penetrate the skin and intestines. As they are shorter than proteins, they enter the bloodstream more quickly. They work by signaling cells to regulate and rejuvenate body functions.

Depending on the sequence of amino acids they contain, peptides have different effects on the body. As a result of their specific nature, they are safe and well-tolerated. With age, however, the production of peptides slows down. Perhaps this explains why people have difficulty losing weight, maintaining bone health, and achieving sexual satisfaction.

Evidence shows that peptides may slow aging, reduce inflammation, and build muscle. Dr. Shel offers peptide therapy regimens tailored to your medical needs and goals.


Originally used as an anti-obesity drug, AOD 9604 is a modified form of amino acids 176-191. The injection of this hormone derivative stimulates the pituitary gland, which, in turn, speeds up metabolism and burns fat.


BPC-157 (body protection compound 157) is a short regeneration peptide chain comprising 15 amino acids. It enhances the expression of growth hormone receptors and is mainly responsible for muscle, injury, and tendon healing, and activating angiogenesis. There is also evidence that it has analgesic properties.

Ipamorelin with CJC-1295

Combining ipamorelin and CJC 1295, a peptide that stimulates pituitary gland function, increases growth hormone release. This is essential for well-being as it promotes anabolism and enhances speed, strength, and endurance during workouts. 

The combination helps repair tissue and mental clarity, boosts immunity, and increases muscle mass. Users of this peptide combination report improved alertness and stimulation of the pituitary gland after taking it.


When applied topically, the human copper-binding peptide GHK-Cu aids in collagen and elastin formation. Patients use GHK-Cu to eliminate wrinkles, discoloration, age spots, and scarring. Clinical trials show that it improves fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and skin appearance.

Zinc Thymulin

Thymulin is a nonapeptide produced by two distinct epithelial populations in the thymus. It requires zinc for biological activity. 

Combining zinc and thymulin improves hair growth, prevents and reduces hair loss, and improves endogenous hair pigmentation in graying hair. 


Dihexa is a new peptide that acts as a hexapeptide, which means it contains six amino acids linked in a chain. This peptide variant is derived from angiotensin IV.

Dihexa is a cognitive enhancer designed to enhance certain cognitive functions, improve mental stamina, and boost both short- and long-term memory capacity.


PT-141 is a non-selective melanocortin receptor agonist that treats men with erectile dysfunction and women with sexual arousal disorders. It is used to restore sexual function, increase libido, and improve performance during intercourse. It works directly through the nervous system to increase arousal, desire, and sexual satisfaction. The hormone PT-141 stimulates the release of the neurotransmitter dopamine, which is associated with sexual function.


Semaglutide is a long-acting, injectable GLP-1 agonist that can be used as a diabetes treatment. It mimics the effects of GLP-1. Semaglutide was initially designed to control blood sugar in diabetic patients, as it stimulates insulin secretion to regulate blood sugar. However, it has also been shown to reduce body fat in healthy individuals! 

It works through several mechanisms, such as suppressing appetite, increasing satiety, reducing food cravings and feelings of hunger, and delaying gastric emptying (the rate at which the stomach empties).


Tirzepatide is a dual GIP and GLP-1 receptor agonist used to treat type II diabetes in adults as an adjunct to diet and exercise. Like semaglutide, it reduces food intake and appetite by mimicking hormones. Besides reducing appetite, tirzepatide may also improve sugar and fat metabolism.

Patients who took a high dose of tirzepatide lost 22.5% of their body weight on average, or 52 pounds, better than any medication currently on the market. A majority of the trial participants had a body mass index above 30. 

Thymosin alpha

Thymosin alpha is used for boosting the immune system as it increases Major Histocompatibility Complex class-1 and cytokine production, providing immunoregulatory function. It enhances T-cell function and stimulates the production of active T-cells, which help your immune system fight germs and protect you from disease.

DSIP (Delta Sleep-Inducing Peptide)

DSIP, or Delta sleep-inducing Peptide, is a somnogeneric nonapeptide that affects neuromodulation. Usually found in the brain, it passes quickly through blood barriers. Studies have shown that DSIP and its analogs are classified as peptide neuromodulators. 

Studies have also shown that DSIP exhibits a stress-protective action that decreases stress-induced metabolic disorders in humans and animals. The DSIP is thought to modulate GABAergic gluta activity and other neuronal systems.


Kisspeptins are peptide hormones that play a major role in controlling reproductive hormones in both men and women. Specifically, kisspeptin regulates the release of gonadotrophin-releasing hormone (GnRH) from the hypothalamus. They may also be used for diabetes, hypogonadism, and metabolic disorders.

VIP (Vasoactive intestinal polypeptide)

Vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP) is a neuropeptide that functions as a neuromodulator and neurotransmitter. It is found in the pancreas, intestine, and central nervous system, and has many actions in the body. It causes the blood vessels to relax and regulates smooth muscle activity, epithelial cell secretion, and blood flow in the gastrointestinal tract.


The peptide sermorelin stimulates the pituitary gland to produce more growth hormone, which enhances vitality and energy, heals injuries, slows aging, and boosts immunity.


Selank peptides are known for their calming and nootropic properties. In addition to helping you overcome anxiety and depression, it relieves stress, relieves aggression and fear reaction, and promotes relaxation and focus. It stimulates mental activity, so the learning process becomes more accessible.

You can use Dr. Shel’s peptides therapy to reduce inflammation, increase healing, reduce weight, increase hair growth, enhance recovery, and reduce aging.

Common Questions About Peptides Therapy

A peptide is a string of amino acids with fewer amino acids than protein, so your body can more easily break it down. There are thousands of peptides in your body, and they are involved in a variety of functions. Peptides act as signaling molecules, essentially telling other molecules what to do.

The body produces most peptides, so it’s easier for the body to absorb them. Due to their high similarity to naturally occurring peptides, synthetic peptides, such as BPC-157, are generally considered safe and well-tolerated.

There is a growing body of evidence supporting the use of peptides in preventive health. Peptides can positively impact your overall health and wellness, such as reducing inflammation, boosting immune function, slowing the aging process, balancing hormones, enhancing muscle growth, promoting hair growth, and many more.

Peptide therapy is popular for its relatively low side effects. Generally, peptides are well tolerated, and side effects are minimal. The most common side effects were injection site reactions, usually skin complaints or mild pain.

Results and duration of therapy, until you experience results, vary per individual. Each peptide therapy is customized per the individual’s medical history, symptoms, and health goals. Peptide therapy effects vary from person to person. A “loading period” usually lasts 3 to 6 months before full effects are observed. If optimal results cannot be achieved during this period, a combination of different peptides may be recommended.

Peptides therapy is prescribed by Dr. Shel’s Sugar Land, TX clinic to help patients regain their health. A peptide therapy might be easier on the body because peptides are shorter chains of amino acids. Therefore, the body recognizes and absorbs them more easily and quickly.
