Peptides

The skincare ingredient you definitely should be using: peptides. Many of my patients already know about the benefits of SPF, vitamin C, and retinol, so what else can you add to your skincare routine? My recommendation is peptides. Think of them as building blocks for important proteins in your skin, like collagen and elastin. Studies have shown that when applied topically, peptides can firm, soothe, and hydrate the skin. Results are even better when combined with other actives! 

Glo Skin Beauty Super Serum
This potent serum contains both retinol and Matrixyl 3000, a peptide which has been shown in numerous clinical trials to have anti-wrinkle effects.

SUZAN OBAGI MD Retivance Skin Rejuvenating Complex
I love this product, it’s part of my nighttime skincare routine! It has so many important active ingredients all in one smooth, non-irritating formulation - retinal, peptides and antioxidants.

Clinicians Complex Peptide Eye Cream
Contains a combination of two super powerful peptides - Matrixyl 3000 (which I discussed above) and Argireline which actually prevents facial muscle contractions thereby preventing wrinkles on the skin. This is so effective for those crow’s feet around the eyes!

Revision Revox 7
Just as the name implies, this contains seven different peptides which will soften the look of lines and prevent new ones from forming.

Sanitas Skincare PeptiDerm Moisturizing Cream
Just read the ingredients list and you’ll see so many effective peptides like Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7, which stimulates collagen, elastin and glucosaminoglycan (GAG) production. GAG’s play a crucial role in maintaining your skin’s structural integrity.

Clinicians Complex Peptide Gel Mask
The gel formulation is great for those with skin on the oiler side.

SkinMedica Neck Correct Cream
Don’t neglect your neck! The neck and décolleté area can get so dry and crepey, which is why this formula is so effective - not only does it have antioxidants and peptides, it’s also super hydrating.

Neocutis Neo Body Restorative Body Cream
This brand really impresses me with their product innovations. Their body cream can be used post-procedure or for maintaining smooth, hydrated skin all over the body.
