Human Growth Hormone | Woodlands, TX
HGH Therapy Can Help you to Be Your Best at Any Age!
At Woodlands Wellness and Cosmetic Center, we know that human growth hormone (HGH) levels drop as you age. As HGH declines, it becomes much harder to build muscle and burn fat, and this is why you gain weight more easily the older you get.
But weight gain is not the only problem associated with age-related growth hormone decline.
Like testosterone, HGH is a critical hormone for men and women. Also, like testosterone, your HGH levels are high when you are a child, rise dramatically through puberty, and then start to drop.
After you reach the age of 20, your HGH level sharply declines. Once you are over 30, you could be experiencing the symptoms of age-related growth hormone deficiency.
What Are the Benefits of Growth Hormone Therapy?
There are many benefits of HGH Therapy, including:
- Improved stamina and energy – Growth hormone is known as the “fitness hormone.” HGH therapy reduces inflammation and promotes healing and cellular growth, which improves your energy levels.
- Increased Ability to Burn Fat and Build Muscle – HGH is essential for muscle growth. HGH not only improves your ability to burn fat but also improves your ability to build lean muscle.
- Stronger Bones – Growth hormone also helps to strengthen bones and decreases your risk of fractures and osteoporosis.
- Improved Libido and Better Sexual Performance – Growth hormone also positively influences testosterone production, which leads to increased sex drive and improved sexual performance.
- Lowered Risk of Cardiovascular Disease – Studies have shown HGH therapy has a positive impact on heart health. It reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease, helps lower cholesterol, and reduces the risk of other metabolic conditions such as diabetes.
- Improved Mood – HGH therapy has been shown to improve mood and lessen the occurrence of anxiety, depression, and other emotional difficulties.
- Improved Memory and Cognition – Optimizing your HGH levels can improve memory, focus, and concentration.
- Improved sleep – HGH is produced during your periods of deep sleep. HGH therapy helps to provide deeper, more restorative sleep.
What Are the Signs and Symptoms of Growth Hormone Deficiency?
While HGH is necessary for children to grow into healthy adults, even once we are fully grown, we still need growth hormones to keep all of our cells strong and healthy. HGH also influences many bodily processes and the level of other critical hormones such as testosterone.
If not addressed, age-related growth hormone deficiency can lead to the following:
- Abnormal blood cholesterol
- Bone loss
- Decreased muscle mass
- Decreased stamina and exercise ability
- Increase abdominal fat
- Increased risk of heart disease
- Lower life expectancy
However, our custom growth hormone therapy programs can return the strength, energy, and muscle tone that can improve every aspect of quality of life!

Common Questions About Human Growth Hormone Therapy
Growth hormone deficiency (GHD) is a medical condition. Growth hormone is produced by the pituitary gland. Any injury or disease condition that causes a problem with pituitary function can lead to GHD. GHD in adults could be the continuation of an untreated or ineffectively treated growth hormone deficiency in childhood. However, it is usually the result of the natural decline in HGH that occurs as you age.
HGH is primarily responsible for influencing everything responsible for cellular growth. Therefore, growth hormone is instrumental in building strong bones and healthy muscles. It is HGH that stimulates all of the processes that allow children to grow to teens and teens to achieve their full strength and stature as adults. While HGH is vitally important during those growing years, we still need HGH even as adults so that we can continue to replace damaged cells and to maintain good muscle mass and bone health throughout our lives.
Yes. HGH is only legally available with a doctor’s prescription. Anything that claims to be HGH, or contain HGH, that you can purchase without a prescription cannot be real growth hormone. Furthermore, legitimate HGH therapy is only given via injections. Any other method of delivery, such as pills or powders that claims to be growth hormone therapy, is not.
There is not a textbook “normal” HGH level for adults. The right amount of HGH for any given individual varies based largely on size and weight. Therefore, once your growth hormone levels are obtained via lab tests, your evaluation and diagnosis for a growth hormone deficiency is based on Body Mass Index or BMI. Doctors use the following diagnostic guidelines for GHD in adults:
- Peak HGH level less than11.1 mcg/L in patients with BMI less than 25
- Peak HGH level less than 8.1 mcg/L in patients with BMI of 25 to less than 30
- Peak HGH level less than 4.1 mcg/L in patients with BMI equal to or greater than 30
Technically, growth hormone deficiencies are not “cured,” but they are very safely and effectively treated with prescription growth hormone injections. Some of the many benefits of growth hormone injections include:
- Increased strength
- Increased stamina
- More energy
- Improved sexual function
- Improved memory and cognition
- Better sleep
- Better moods
- Increased ability to burn fat and build muscle
- Healthier skin and bones
