In the Wall Street Journal interview, Jennifer Aniston confirmed that she gets weekly peptide injections to help keep up her timeless appearance. The “Friends” star seemed certain that peptides were the future of anti-aging solutions. It’s safe to say that Aniston believes amino acids help counteract aging because a peptide is a short chain of them. Speaking to Glamour, certified dermatologist Dr. Maria Garshick, MD, FAAD, shared the supposed benefits of peptide therapy: “It is thought to help to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and overall skin texture.”
She continued, “Peptides function as messenger molecules, communicating with cells to trigger the production of more collagen and elastin, which may help to firm and tighten the skin once injected into the skin.” Although Aniston is currently in her ’50s, she still boasts some pretty impressive muscle definition, and peptide injections can help with that, too. Peptides can help increase muscle mass, contribute to fat loss, and improve endurance so you can get the most out of your workouts.
Dr. Garshick also explained how peptide injections generally tend to be more potent than topical applications. She added that while peptides have been a primary ingredient in several anti-aging products for years now, it’s important to know that their benefits aren’t completely verified. Dr. Garshick also cautioned peptide users to avoid expecting mind-blowing results. Moreover, depending on the type of peptide used, the therapy costs anywhere from $100 to $1,000, with the average being $500.
