We all want to live better, feel better, and be able to do the things that we love, but experiencing an injury, living with chronic illness, and even the natural aging process can make this difficult. Peptide therapy utilizes natural processes in the body as a way to increase vitality, energy, and your body’s healing abilities for a better quality of life.

What Are Peptides?

Peptides are small or incomplete proteins made from amino acids naturally occurring in the body, and many drugs are made of these peptides or proteins. They are involved with almost all chemical reactions and transportation of signals and information in the body. Essentially, peptides serve as crucial building blocks for most structures and functions in the body. Peptide therapy uses synthesized peptides that copy the peptides already existing in humans and living organisms.

What Are the Benefits of Peptide Therapy?

Like bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, peptide therapy enhances the power of naturally occurring substances within your body to heal, balance, and increase a variety of functions.

If used correctly and under the guidance of a physician, peptides can:

  • Increase healing
  • Enhance physical performance
  • Sharpen mental performance
  • Slow or even stop the cellular aging process

Though peptides are not steroids, they can also help our bodies activate our own hormones and bring balance back to our aging bodies. There are even peptides that can activate telomerase and lengthen telomeres, protecting our DNA from damage due to aging. Most of the peptides are well tolerated and safe if administered under the guidance of a physician.

Peptide Protocols at Capitis Medical & Aesthetics

In addition to specific peptides that Dr. Crose uses to treat specific ailments, he has also put together protocols to treat general problems depending on what the patient wants to address.


Energy UP

Includes MVT and NAD+ infusions with another peptide, increasing patient energy and mitochondrial function.

Acute Injury Model

Acute Injury

Dr. Crose curates this protocol for the patient’s specific needs, which includes Ipamorelin and other peptides for rapid tissue healing with decrease in inflammation.

Chronic Injury Model

Chronic Injury

This protocol is very similar to the acute injury protocol, with slightly different dosing of the peptides to accommodate the needs of patients with long-term injuries.

Anti-Aging Model


The most comprehensive of the peptide protocols, the anti-aging treatment addresses energy levels, mitochondrial health, immune system, nerve, and brain cell health, as well as increases cell lifespan by extending telomeres.

Neuroregenerative and Neuroprotection Model

Neuroregenerative and Neuroprotection

This protocol protects brain and peripheral nerve cells from environmental toxins and stress while increasing synaptic connections. This is an excellent treatment for helping with brain injury and neurodegenerative diseases or simply to boost brain function.

Am I a Candidate for Peptide Therapy?

If you are experiencing a decline in energy, cognitive function, or overall health, or you have experienced a recent injury, have a chronic condition, or just want to boost performance, peptide therapy may be a good option for you.

Candidates for peptide therapy may also be experiencing the following concerns:

  • High levels of body fat
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Reduced libido
  • Fatigue
  • Less muscle and lean body mass
  • Decreased strength and stamina
  • Reduced bone density
  • Digestive problems and diseases (IBD, IBS)
  • Pain

Dr. Crose will conduct a comprehensive consultation to determine your eligibility for peptide therapy. During your consultation, he will review your medical history and discuss your goals for peptide therapy. Then, he will design an individualized peptide therapy protocol that will best serve your needs.

How Is Peptide Therapy Performed?

You can begin treatment once Dr. Crose has created a custom peptide therapy treatment plan. Peptides can be administered orally, topically, subcutaneously, and intravenously. In many cases, peptide therapy is administered in cycles: your specific treatment dosage is administered at set intervals so that the body has time to adjust.

Dr. Crose has partnered with a custom producer of peptides and is able to provide them with a new patented technology that allows many of them to absorb orally as well or better than via IV or subcutaneously.  Ultimately, he will choose the combination of therapy that is best suited to your needs.

How Much Does Peptide Therapy Cost?

The cost of peptide therapy in San Diego will vary from patient to patient, depending on the type of peptide(s) used and the length of treatment. Dr. Crose develops unique treatments for each patient, so your peptide therapy may be priced differently than another’s. Dr. Crose’s pre-set peptide therapy protocols are priced as such:

Energy UP: Protocol provided over two months with 2-4 IV therapy sessions $2700-$3700

Acute Injury: 8-week treatment $1620-$1820

Chronic Injury: 2-4-month treatment $2000-$3000

Anti-Aging: 3-month treatment $5070-$6070

Neuroregenerative and Neuroprotection: 2-month protocol $3270-$5020

Each peptide therapy regimen is designed specifically for the patient. Dr. Crose will be happy to provide a more accurate cost estimate during your consultation.

How Long Is Peptide Therapy Recovery?

There is no recovery associated with peptide therapy. Most patients will be able to continue or resume normal activities following treatments as many of these treatments are performed by the patient at home.

When Will I See the Results of Peptide Therapy?

Peptides work by increasing functionality and restoring efficacy to the natural processes in the body. Therefore, it may take several weeks or months to see (and feel) the results of your peptide therapy session but most people notice their effects quickly.

Depending on the specific protocol you are given, once the peptides begin to repair and enhance your body’s functions, you may feel an increase in energy, improved joint and muscle health, faster recovery, and a stronger immune system.

Peptide Therapy Frequently Asked Questions

What are the risks of peptide therapy?

Peptide therapy is generally considered safe under the care of a licensed physician. Over-the-counter products that claim to possess peptides may be ineffective or have adverse effects. Always consult your physician before using any supplements or medications, including peptides.

Are there any side effects associated with peptide therapy?

Under the care of a physician, peptide therapy is generally a safe and effective wellness treatment. However, there is the possibility of some side effects, including:

  • Allergic reactions
  • Injection site reactions
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Interactions with other medications

One way to avoid known side effects is to communicate your medical history, medications, and known allergies to Dr. Crose so that he can create a peptide therapy plan for you that is both effective and safe.

How long will I need to continue peptide therapy once I start?

The length of treatment will vary from patient to patient, depending on your current needs and goals, your overall health, and the type of protocol used. Generally, peptide therapy is a regimented treatment that may take anywhere from 1 to 6 months to allow your body to adjust to the changes fully. Additionally, you will need regular examinations to determine the efficacy of your treatment.
