What is a Peptide Serum, and Does it Really Work?

This article will describe what peptide serums are, what they contain if they work to improve skin health and appearance, and other ways you can improve your appearance.

What are peptide serums?

A serum is a mixture of various ingredients to improve your skin’s appearance. Peptide serums are a specific mixture of peptides and other ingredients that work together to make your skin look healthier.

What do peptide serums contain?

Three peptides are used in skincare peptide serums: copper peptides, enzyme inhibitor peptides, and signal peptides.

Copper peptides improve the overall health of your skin and hair by increasing blood flow to your hair and skin, encouraging oxygen flow. Copper helps your hair maintain its color and may even prevent it from turning gray. Copper peptides are commonly used in beauty products for your skin and hair.

Enzyme inhibitor peptides smooth the muscles in your face and neck, reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Enzyme inhibitor peptides can provide these benefits because they can impair the production of a certain type of protein that causes lines and wrinkles.

Signal peptides speed up your body’s collagen production by sending signals to cells in different parts of your body. This peptide makes your skin look more youthful and is commonly used in facial serums.

Do peptide serums improve skin health and appearance?

As discussed above, peptide serums improve skin health and appearance in several ways, depending on the type of peptide used in a particular serum.

Copper peptide serums benefit your hair and skin.

Enzyme inhibitor peptide serums can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on your face and neck. Whether an enzyme inhibitor peptide is derived from rice or soy, it can help your body retain more collagen (rice-derived peptides) or prevent dark spots on your skin (soy-derived peptides).

Signal peptides make your skin appear more youthful because they increase your body’s production of collagen, elastin, and similar structure proteins, giving your skin a firmer and fuller look.

What are other ways I can improve my appearance?

Morpheus8 combines the techniques of microneedling and radiofrequency technology. It gives you a rejuvenated look because it encourages collagen production and improves the complexion and texture of your skin.

Dermal fillers make your skin glow with radiance and youthfulness because they restore the volume of your face and improve the appearance of wrinkles.

Botox injections work by temporarily paralyzing the muscles in the area around the injection site. Botox removes wrinkles and fine lines.

A Micro gold facial treatment makes your skin appear radiant and glowing.

Microneedling uses a special tool to increase collagen production and naturally improve your skin’s appearance, brightness, and tone.

Microneedling with PRP combines microneedling with a PRP treatment add-on that improves the effectiveness of the microneedling and brightens and smooths your skin.

PRP hair restoration treatment uses your blood plasma to naturally improve hair growth and thickness in areas where you lose hair.

Chemical peels improve your skin’s tone and texture and reduce the appearance of discoloration and scars.

You can get skin care prescriptions by having your beauty goals and target areas assessed by a medical professional during a virtual consultation so that the provider can recommend the best treatments available for your skin type and skincare needs.
