What are Peptide Targeted Treatments?

Peptide Targeted Treatments

Skincare containing peptides can be the key to amping up your skincare game. To keep it short and simple, peptides are a short chain of amino acids that help make up the proteins in our body.

Different types of peptides are designed to have different effects thanks to the various combinations of amino acids, which allows the peptides to work in very specific ways to target your specific skincare needs. These targeted treatments are so much more than a ‘beauty trend’, they provide revolutionary results, whether its smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, increasing firmness or hydration, or illuminating and accentuating your facial features. Just like booster serums, peptide targeted treatments are completely customizable to your own skincare routine to help you maximize your results and enhance natural beauty.

 

 

What do peptides do in skincare?

There’s a wide variety of functions that peptides can provide in your skincare products and they each work to benefit the skin in many different ways. It’s easiest to think of peptides as the ‘messenger’ sending signals to your skin cells, whether it’s to regulate pigmentation, to build more collagen or produce less melanin, for example.
Here’s an even further breakdown of some of our favourite peptides and their benefits…
