Why People Love to Hate Anti-aging treatments

For many people, fighting the effects of aging is a constant battle that involves trying all sorts of different solutions. However, there's a lot of controversy surrounding anti-aging treatments because so many of them fail to address the actual causes of aging. Not only that, many treatments have negative side effects that leave people worse off than they were prior to starting the treatment. The important thing to remember is that all anti-aging treatments are different, and some of them are actually very safe and effective. Here's what you need to know about anti-aging treatments and why so many of them get a bad rap.

Is It Really Anti-Aging?

One of the biggest parts of the anti-aging debate stems from the fact that a lot of the products that are marketed as anti-aging aren't at all. The term "anti-aging" implies that the aging effects are being halted or reversed in some way, but the truth of the matter is, most anti-aging products simply treat what's on the surface. Microdermabrasion, for example, simply removes dry skin, bumps caused by oil and spots that have been lightly sun damaged. While this certainly makes your skin look a bit better, it's not addressing the underlying cause of all these things: aging. Even injectables like synthetic collagen fillers and Botox are very limited in what they can do. Botox treatments are designed to last for up to 4 months while fillers can last anywhere between 6 months and a year.

The truth is, however, that all these treatments are simply forms of skin care. While these treatments may help you look younger for a bit, they're only putting a bandage over part of what the aging process does to you. Some people with minor signs of aging may be fine with simply using a few different skin care treatments and trying to thwart hair loss, but it's not going to make the difference you want it to if you're looking for big results. For this, you need to find a true anti-aging solution.

A Real Remedy

There are a lot of reasons for the effects of aging, from natural occurrences in your body to simple habits you've had throughout your life. However, one of the main reasons that the aging process is so rapid and visible is the fact that we lose a lot of our HGH as we age. HGH is responsible for a lot of functions in our body, from muscle growth to the health of our vital organs and cells. Unfortunately, HGH levels tend to decrease by as much as 80% from the time you're 20 to the time you're 60. What's even worse is the fact that this sharp drop in HGH levels kicks in at about 30, so the anti-aging process is rapid.

Because of this, one of the best ways to combat the effects of aging is by using HGH therapy. HGH therapy helps restore your HGH levels to what they once were, which can help fight many of the effects of aging. However, this therapy is generally done with synthetic HGH which shuts down natural HGH production and puts you at risk for taking excessive doses. In addition to this, synthetic HGH can cause carpal tunnel syndrome, an enlarged hart and abnormal bone and tissue growth.

A Happy Medium

HGH therapy provides a unique and effective approach to anti-aging, but taking synthetic HGH simply isn't worth it when you consider the side effects. The good news is, Nu Image uses peptides instead of synthetic HGH to help you increase your energy levels. Peptides are different than synthetic HGH because they help increase HGH levels with no risk of excessive dosage or other harmful side effects. It also allows your body to continue naturally producing HGH. On top of that, peptides are a lot more affordable than synthetic HGH, which means you don't have to spend thousands on anti-aging each month.


Nu Image offers a lineup of peptides that includes wellness/anti-aging peptides, healing peptides, muscle building and recovery peptides and sexual performance peptides. You can find out more about these peptides on our website. Not only are most of our peptides available for the low price of $199 per month, we also make it incredibly easy to get started. If you're interested in trying peptides through Nu Image, all you have to do is enroll online to see if you're eligible, work with one of our licensed physicians to create a personalized plan and wait for your medication by mail. When it comes to simple anti-aging solutions, that's hard to beat.
