Peptides and anti-aging treatment
To put it simple, Peptides are short chains of protein. Peptides are the basic building blocks of proteins and many other types of organic molecules. Peptides are often produced in the process of protein digestion through the processes of the body. There are many types of peptides which can be easily absorbed through the blood vessels. For this reason, Peptides are particularly effective when used as a skin care ingredient to help reduce wrinkles and improve skin quality.
MAIN BENEFITS OF PEPTIDES
Below are researched and proven benefits of Peptides. One of them is to reduce wrinkle appearance, thus make you look younger.
Peptides provide copper for your skin: Studies show that copper is a very effective in healing skin - so it's no surprise that it has been used to treat chronic wounds. Because peptides are very small, they can penetrate deep into the skin's protective barrier, and into skin layers that are inaccessible to many other compounds. Peptides also promote collagen production and act as antioxidants. They are necessary for the healing and regeneration of the epidermis as well as help remove damaged collagen.
Neuropeptides having botox-like features: Some peptides can stop the transmission of nerve signals to your face muscles. In particular, the neuropeptides known as Argireline has been proven in the laboratory to be capable of stopping the transmission of nerve. If fully absorbed into your skin, Argireline can prevent muscle from contraction, make skin smooth and have the same effects as Botox.
Peptides send signals to your skin to produce more collagen: As we age, our collagen is damaged and can not be reproduced. The result is a once youthful and smooth skin becomes thin and wrinkled over time.
Treatment to reduce wrinkles and make you look younger usually involves replacing lost collagen. When collagen is damaged, it forms certain peptides. These peptides act as a signal to notify the skin is damaged and needs new collagen.
