Peptide active peel have been especially designed to address the problems of withering skin showing signs of aging.
This kind of treatment facilitates renewal of cells of dermis and epidermis, makes deep wrinkles less visible and removes fine lines. It also provides a good lifting effect and moisturizes skin. It is suitable for any skin type with signs of aging, particularly for dry skin. Peptide active peel resurfacing is one of the best solutions for mature skin.

- Facial hair removal less than 2 weeks prior to the peel treatment
Mechanics of peptide active peels:
The effect is associated with the activity of various acids, hyaluronic acid and peptides. Acids can moisturize the skin and exfoliate dead cells. Besides, they assist peptides, which have low molecular weight, in penetrating into dermis where they start demonstrating their specific abilities – activating regenerative processes and production of fibroblasts, responsible for synthesis of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid.
Peptides and their peculiar properties:
Peptides are molecular compounds, both found in nature and synthesized, that consist of amino acid monomers, which are linked by peptide (amide) bonds. Instead of amino group, they can contain, for instance, the carboxyl group. Nowadays, more than 1500 peptides are known. Scientists have studied their properties and learned how to synthesize them.
There are peptides in all living cells; they are active participants in all processes of a living organism. Both hormones and enzymes contain peptides. Peptides take part in regenerative processes and digestion; influence the immune, nervous, and vascular systems, and provide a pain alleviating effect. Some peptides can produce multiple results simultaneously. It is possible to synthesize peptides with properties, and thus, to create pharmaceuticals and cosmetics products that effectively address problems in medicine and aesthetics. Peptides in the peel solution are aimed directly at achieving results; at the same time, they have no side effects such as skin flaking, hyperpigmentation, and irritation.
Types of peptides:
Peptides that stimulate production of extracellular matrix components (matrikines) – these peptides contain no more than 20 amino acid monomers. They are formed during enzymatic hydrolysis of structural components of dermal matrix, i.e. the proteins like collagen, elastin, and fibronectin, when a wound is naturally cleaned before it starts healing. The matrikines transmit signals to fibroblasts, which start producing new components of the matrix to substitute the destroyed ones. (Palmitoyl Tripeptide-1, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7).
Peptides that regulate melanogenesis – these peptides affect the process of melanogenesis, either reducing or increasing production of pigment under the influence of UV rays. (Nonapeptide-1).
Peptides that protect DNA from damage, stimulates its natural repair pathways and reverts senescence in fibroblast. Hexapeptide mimics the activity of FOXO3a which is involved in cell repair, renewal and longevity. (Acetyl hexapeptide-51 amide)
