Benefits: Anti-Aging, Wound Healing, Cell Repair
- Improves appearance of skin texture
- Helps decrease wrinkles and fine lines
- Helps fade stubborn sun damage/age spots
- May build skin rejuvenation collagen naturally
Oligopeptides are vital to maintaining a youthful appearance. The skin and scalp contain multiple growth factors that regulate natural cellular renewal and damage repair processes to keep skin healthy and to maintain a normal hair growth cycle. These oligopeptides are responsible for helping to reverse the visible effects of chronological aging and premature aging due to environmental factors. The consequences of environmental exposure and the normal processes of aging lead to excessive free radical damage of skin and scalp cellular components, resulting in the breakdown of collagen and elastin networks in the dermis and producing the effect of visible facial aging. This same type of damage eventually impairs oligopeptide function, so they are less able to repair oxidative damage, and the damage becomes permanent.
Advances in Oligopeptide-technology are providing help for reversing the signs of aging. Oligopeptides can now be produced in a laboratory for topical use. In multiple clinical studies, topically applied oligopeptides have been shown to reduce the signs of skin aging, including statistically significant reductions in fine lines and wrinkles and increases in dermal collagen synthesis. Oligopeptide-technology is also being used successfully for encouraging healthy hair growth, reducing the appearance of scars, supporting the skin during post-procedure healing, and shortening the healing time of burn wounds.
