With new skincare products being introduced to consumers constantly, it is difficult to know exactly what is the right product for your specific skin concerns, especially if you’re starting to show a few signs of aging. Peptides have been introduced to the market and have shown to be a very promising solution for those of us that are fighting the signs of aging with all of our might.
Here at Pristine Med Spa, we can help demystify exactly what peptides are, how they work, and which products have peptides that actually WORK.
What exactly are peptides?
Peptides are proteins composed of long or short chains of amino acids, which are the building blocks of proteins. Peptides can either be real or synthetic. Most peptides in skin care are synthetic because this give lab engineers greater control over the quality and the effectiveness of the peptides.
How do peptides work?
All peptides function as “messengers” and in skin care they have cell communicating capability. For example, some peptides affect muscle movement, some affect collagen and elastin synthesis, and some act as anti-inflammatory agents, speeding tissue regeneration resulting in the normalization of damaged skin.
Here at Pristine Med Spa, we carry Lucrece Physician’s Aesthetic Research products, which use peptide complexes that are on the cutting edge of skin care technology and research today.
