Growth Hormone Therapy: Growth hormone is also known as the “Hollywood Hormone” due to its strong anti-aging properties. Dr. Smitherman utilizes a peptide called Sermorelin that promotes growth hormone production in your body. As we age, our growth hormone declines leading to the typical signs of aging: loose skin, lose of muscle mass, fat gain around the belly, and decreased cognitive function. Sermorelin helps your body to release more growth hormone to improve these signs of aging.
