Peptides and Why They’re Amazing!

There are so many different options for skin care in this day and age. Long gone are the days of only two products and warm water to take care of your body’s largest organ! But now in the 21st century, with the seemingly limitless amount of information and options at our fingertips, it can be confusing exactly what to look for when it comes to what’s best for us. That’s why I’m here to preach about adding something incredible into your facial routine: Peptides!

Peptides are the building blocks for the collagen and elastin fibers found in our skin. They’re chains of amino acids, specifically designed to tell the body to produce more collagen. When these little pieces of magic are utilized in a moisturizer or topical serum, they can help drastically reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles! When products with peptides are used regularly, like in your daily facial routine, they can assist with the smoothing, firming, reducing inflammation, and continual hydration of your skin.

If you’re interested in the incredible things that peptides can do for you, one of the services we offer at my office is a Hyrafacial, perfectly designed to give your skin a boost of peptides after detoxing and cleaning. To go along with our rejuvenative Hydrafacial, some of my favorite daily use peptide-filled-products are the C – Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream by Drunk Elephant, the Phyto Corrective Mask by SkinCeuticals, and the Micro-Sculpting Cream Face Moisturizer by Olay Regenerist.

If you’re interested in learning more about peptide-based treatments and what we can do to keep your skin at its best, feel free to make an appointment to come in! Please remember that masks are mandatory for all appointments, and you’re encouraged to call the office to discuss all safety precautions being taken.
