Why is Copper Important for Healthy Skin?

Healthy_SkinAs we age, fine lines and wrinkles become a battle where we refuse to fall victim. We experiment with the multitude of drug store age defying products in search for the one that will allow us to remain looking young for as long as possible. This experimentation process can be eliminated or avoided if we skipped the drug store and went directly to a trusted physician at the North Scottsdale Laser and Skin Care Clinic.  
We are a provider for both ProCyte skin care products and Neova Therapy’s patented GHK Copper Peptide Complex. One of the most powerful but underrated substances to regenerate skin and repair wrinkles are copper peptides. This copper compound is an ingredient in today’s must-have age defying products. Playing an essential role, peptides are fragments of proteins that repair injured tissue and establish new tissue.  Copper peptides are formed when copper attracts and binds with peptides, building a foundation for collagen and elastin, which are both crucial for healthy skin. Using copper based products results in the following benefits:

  • Peptides are useful to treat various skin irritations because of their anti-inflammatory characteristics.
  • Youthful looking skin is accomplished by becoming softer and more elastic through restored elastin, collagen and hydration.
  • Produced collagen and stimulated elastin reduces signs of aging by firming the skin, preventing sagging skin and filling in fine lines and wrinkles.
  • If the protective barrier to the skin is damaged, copper peptides rebuild skin, like reducing and removing scarring or skin lesions.
  • Skin is protected from oxidative damage by increasing natural defense mechanisms and resulting in cleaner and younger looking skin.

Copper peptide based products create compelling results for fantastic looking skin, but not all copper formulas are effective. Our products contain the right formulation of copper peptide compounds and are actually only available for purchase in registered physician offices.
