Peptide use has grown in recent years, and peptide therapy is now more common in treating various conditions. At Franz Skincare, we’re always following the latest in healing and anti-aging technology. Let’s look at peptide therapy, what it means, and how peptides are effective in the best anti-aging skin care applications.
What are peptides?
Peptides are tiny chains of amino acids, the “building blocks” of proteins. You can find peptides in foods just like proteins, but peptides have fewer amino acid strings.
Your body naturally makes peptides. There are more than 7,000 peptides in our bodies, and each handles a different action or response.
The most recent research has focused on how peptides play a role in pausing the aging process, eliminating harmful microbes, and reducing inflammation, according to Medical News Daily.
Since peptides are so small, your body might be able to process them more efficiently than proteins. They can better penetrate the organs to enter the bloodstream faster.
What is peptide therapy?
Peptide therapy is a new anti-aging treatment that restores the number of peptides in the body. It focuses on stimulating cellular regrowth to slow the aging process and treat age-related diseases.
What are the benefits of peptide therapy?
Potential benefits of peptide therapy include:
Decreasing signs of aging
Boosting hormone levels
Increasing muscle mass and athletic performance
Speeding up healing processes
Enhancing memory and cognitive function
Improving stamina, strength, and energy
Promoting healthy immune function
These are just a few examples. Peptide therapy has many possible benefits that are still being researched.
Since the body already makes peptides, peptide therapy comes with minimal serious concerns.
How does peptide therapy work?
Peptide therapy can be administered in different ways, including through injections, creams, and serums. The idea is that the new peptides bind to receptors in the body that stop or start different signals to slow aging and promote better health.
As we get older, our bodies produce less collagen, the protein that provides structure to the skin. Loss of collagen leads to fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. Peptide therapy and products containing peptides can help prevent these common aging signs.
Ideally, the result is smoother, firmer, plumper skin!
What’s new in peptide therapy?
Peptide therapy has come a long way over the last several years. According to an Industry Trends and Global Forecasts report from Business Wire, over 30 peptide-based drugs are on the market today to treat many different diseases. More than ten of these drugs have been FDA approved so far.
Post-COVID, more companies are working on peptide therapies, and the numbers are expected to increase. We’re excited to see what the future brings for different peptide applications.
Are there disadvantages of peptide drugs?
Common peptide drugs do have some disadvantages. Since peptides tend to be rapidly metabolized, they might not do as well in oral applications. As a result, companies are always looking for better ways to provide peptide therapies.
Uses of peptides in skincare products
Peptides are incredibly useful in high-quality skincare applications. For those who want to avoid more invasive methods, peptides in skincare are an ideal option.
When you apply peptides to the skin, they offer many anti-aging benefits. While peptides are not a “miracle” cure (nothing is), they are a crucial part of preventative anti-aging and active anti-aging skincare. That’s why, at Franz Skincare, we combine peptides with other youth-promoting ingredients.
Peptide therapy in eye serums
For example, our Botalin Age Repair Eye Serum formula contains methionyl r-clostridium botulinum polypeptide-1 hexapeptide-40, a peptide that easily permeates the skin to help reduce wrinkles. We combine this ingredient with:
Hydrolyzed sodium hyaluronate, which is 2,600 times smaller than the average hyaluronic acid molecules
Niacinamide, a form of vitamin B3 that helps rebuild the skin barrier and protect from UV damage
Adenosine, an anti-aging ingredient that promotes smoother, more youthful skin
Peptides in volumizing serum
One of the best peptides for anti-aging serums is acetyl hexapeptide-8, the “firming peptide.” Its use in 101 Volumizing Serum restores bounce, elasticity, and volume to the skin.
We combine this wonder peptide with varying sizes of hyaluronic acid, ceramides, and vitamin and mineral complexes to help address inflammation, boost skin immunity, and draw in natural moisture.
Peptides serums in Korean sheet masks
Microcurrent face masks are some of the most revolutionary anti-aging skin care products on the market. Our Franz masks are dual-layered to provide maximum hydration and at-home facelift Tissue X® technology to move ingredients deeper beneath the skin’s layers.
The Jet Microcurrent Facial Dual Mask contains copper tripeptide-1, a naturally occurring protein that helps stimulate collagen production to visibly repair the skin. We combine this peptide with micro-hyaluronic acid, ceramides, and other anti-aging ingredients to refresh and reset skin.
