With the elimination of a molecule of water, a peptide bond is formed. To put it simply, they are basically just small proteins. … Peptides, as we mentioned are made from amino acids. So, intake and production of all the amino acids is necessary for production of all the peptides needed for the body to work efficiently.

They are known to stimulate the production of collagen, elastin and other structure proteins that make the skin appear firmer and fuller.

Peptides are chains of amino acids that are the building blocks of proteins in the skin. … One important protein in our skin is collagen. Collagen gives our skin its thickness and suppleness. When collagen breaks down in the skin (from age and environmental factors like the sun and stress), wrinkles form.

When collagen breaks down, short segments of amino acids are formed. These are the tiny proteins and active molecules known as peptides. Peptides in skin care can provide significant anti-aging benefits to reduce wrinkling, tighten and tone skin.

We combine peptides with Thermage and Ultraslim therapies to offer the greatest results.
