We Love Peptides!

Why do we love peptides?

We love peptides because they reduce the appearance of fine lines and improve skin tone and texture.  And I don’t know about you, but the older I get the more I love and appreciate having smooth, radiant, and firm skin.  I like to refer to our
Bio Peptide Revitalizing Serum as “photoshop” in a bottle. 

 

 

How do Peptides work?

Collagen is a protein in the skin that keeps it firm, strong, and supple.  As we age collagen production decreases and we notice enlargement of pores, wrinkles, fine lines, and skin thinning. Collagen is a protein made up of long chain amino acids.  When collagen breaks down in the skin, it gets broken down into its short-chained relatives, amino acids or peptides. In this way the peptide then becomes a notification to the body that it needs to produce more collagen to repair the damage.  We “trick” the body... by applying peptides topically to the skin. 

Peptides in skin care have also been shown to have antioxidant properties that aid in skin healing and help protect from UV damage.  In addition to the restoration benefits of peptides, they also may assist in release of hyaluronic acid in the skin for hydration.

Types of Peptides:

Peptides are amino acids that occur naturally.  There are many different types of peptides used for anti-aging skin care.  Commonly used peptides are Oligopeptides, Pentapeptides, Tetrapeptides, Hexapeptides and Copper peptides.  All have their own unique properties but all work similarly to restore your skin to its youthful beauty.

How to use Peptides:

Add a peptide serum to your skin care routine twice a day for a noticeable improvement in the appearance of fine lines, pores and anti-aging benefits. Serums offer a higher concentration of peptides than moisturizers, so choose a serum for best results. However, for added moisture and peptide, we also offer our Bio peptide Lotion (coming soon). I love our Bio Peptide Revitalizing Serum. It is one of best sellers and my patients love the results.  Be patient to see your results, as any new skin care regimen can take up to three months to see results. However, most of my patients report seeing improvements within two weeks of use. 

Give your skin some love.  Nourish it with the right ingredients and you will love the results.
