Peptides - The Buzz Word in Skin Care

What are peptides?

Peptides are short segments of 3-5 amino acids or mini proteins.

How do they work?

When collagen breaks down, it forms specific peptides that act as a signal to tell your skin it was damaged and to make new collagen.

What will peptides do for my skin?

Applying peptides to the skin is a way to trick your skin into thinking it has recently lost collagen and needs to make more.  Therefore, the skin’s tone and texture is improved, resulting in a smoother, tighter appearance.

What peptides are right for my skin?

The Registered Nurse/​Skin care specialists at the Okanagan Skin Care Centre can assess your skin and determine the appropriate skin care regime for you, which can include the appropriate peptide product.  Please call our clinic at 250-868-9290 to arrange a consultation to discuss your skin care.
