Amino acids as an anti-ageing factor
Amino acids combine together to form peptides. When multiple peptides attach to each other, a protein is formed. This is why scientists often refer to proteins as polypeptides. For example, a dipeptide is made up of two different amino acid chains attached to each other. Tripeptides have three amino acid chains, tetrapeptides have four amino acid chains and so on. Any chain of amino acids that exceeds 20 peptides is called a protein. Short amino acid chains are considered one of the most effective anti-ageing treatments because they can pass through the top layer of the skin and provide signals to cells to create more collagen. As a result, the skin becomes firmer and turns more youthful.
Neuropeptides, which are made up of different amino acid chains that send different signals to the skin, have several uses. For example, neuropeptides relax the facial muscles, which can help reduce fine lines and fine wrinkles, just like Botox.
Copper peptides, on the other hand, help reduce inflammation, improve wound healing, and stimulate the hair follicles. Copper peptides may also help reduce the appearance of stretch marks and age spots, as well as scars and other skin issues.
Phyto peptides are well-suited for increasing collagen production. Phyto peptides also help to protect your current collagen from damage. As a result, the results are similar to an injection of facial filler, only it takes a bit longer. These versatile compounds are less costly and painful to use than Botox injections or filler injections, and there are no nasty side effects.
What are peptides?
There are many different types of peptides used in facial rejuvenating and anti-ageing treatments. You can use peptides in creams and facials, as well as peels. Most formulations will only work if you use them for at least one month. If you stop using them regularly, you may start to see signs of ageing, such as fine lines and wrinkles. Because peptides are large molecules, they need to be exfoliated regularly to help get as many of them as possible into the outer layer of the skin.
