Taking human growth hormone. Will it interfere with superficial chemical peel course? What are the side effects?

Hello my name is Samantha I am 33 years old, my weight is 66kg my height is 167cm... I am looking at taking human growth hormone . Research leads me to believe many people (BodyBuilders, Dr s, Celebrities etc) are now taking this and its nick name (fountain of youth) really appeals to me.. after looking at this a lot I have found a genuine source who have hgh ( Genotropin ) as I know some one who has been taking it with training and fitness to become healthier.. and I believe it to work, my reason for contacting you is for more information... I have heard (word of mouth) that the negative side affect can be that your jaw size increases, and I do not wish to look like a man, is this True?.. and would this be the best/right form of hgh for me to take?. I seen my Dr who said I needed to see an Endocrinologist privately, can you advise me on how much this will cost?. I would also like to know if being on Human Growth Hormone, would interfere with having a superficial chemical peel course.. 15% TCA

Hi Samantha, Welcome to HCM.

Growth hormone, as the name suggests, increases the growth of various tissues in the body particularly muscloskeletal. Thus in children it is required for their normal growth. However, too much growth hormone in adults (exogenous or endogenous) will cause abnormal growth of your muscles and skeleton. Some of its apparent effects are increase in size of your hands and feet, increase in your jaw and widening in the gap between your teeth. In addition, it will also cause growth of internal organs as well as such increase in the size of heart, kidneys etc. Furthermore, growth hormone will also cause swelling in your vocal cords leading to hoarseness of voice. Some people may also develop skin hyperpigmentation and hypertrichosis (increase in body hair). There are many side effects of taking growth hormones and I will advise against it. However, if you are very interested in building muscles then I will advise going for proteins and if you are already taking it then I will advise you to continue taking it. It is much safer than the hormones.

To answer your question, HGH will not affect the chemical peel course.

Hope this helps.
