Did you know that Copper Peptides have the ability to penetrate beneath the epidermis on your face and scalp, potentially helping to build collagen and elastin. Other anti-aging effects are possible too, including reduced inflammation and improved circulation.
Copper Peptides effects on the skin
Copper Peptides promote collagen production and act as amazing antioxidants. Copper peptides are needed for healing and regeneration of your skin and to help remove damaged collagen. To improve wrinkles and to help the skin look younger, we need to replace lost collagen. When collagen breaks down, it forms specific peptides. These peptides act as a signal to tell your skin it was damaged and to make new collagen.
Copper peptides effects on the Scalp
Copper Peptides are thought to help increase blood circulation in our skin, Copper itself has been reported as being able to help maintain the tissues found in blood vessels. Thus, Copper peptides may stimulate hair follicles, and receive adequate oxygen and nutrients to produce new hair growth.
Copper Peptides including GHK-Cu help encourage hair growth by blocking the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT) which has been shown to curb hair growth.
Copper peptides stimulate the production of new capillaries in the scalp. As we grow old, peripheral circulation in our capillaries can deteriorate and result in hair loss on the scalp. According to a 2018 research review, by producing new capillaries, copper peptides increase the supply of oxygen and nutrients to the hair follicles to promote hair growth.
Copper peptides stimulate and prolong the hair growth phase (anagen). This means more time for active hair regrowth and thicker hair strands. Subsequently, this shortens the resting phase of the hair follicles (telogen) and decreases sudden hair shedding (telogen effluvium).
The hair will have a thicker and fuller appearance. As referenced, this molecule has anti-inflammatory properties.
How long does Copper Peptide take to work?
Copper Peptides also improve elasticity and skin plumpness, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This serum helps increase the skin density in just 8 weeks, leaving you with a more robust and youthful-looking skin. For hair it also can take up to 8 weeks.
What is the best way to use copper peptides?
The optimal way to use copper peptides is in a topical scalp serum. The best scalp serums will include, in addition to copper peptides, other medicated or plant-based active ingredients that will be synergistic with the peptides and help enhance their effect. I’m Fabulous Cosmetics has created a super concentrated 10% copper peptide serum with plant based ingredients and zero preservatives or toxic ingredients. So far the most concentrated copper peptides serum on the market! This serum can be used on the skin or on the scalp and work wonderful as well with the Glow derma pen which makes the serum penetrate even dipper into the skin.
