Erase Wrinkles with Copper Peptides!


A straightening iron very effectively smoothens out the curliest of hair. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have something that could iron out wrinkles as well? Copper Peptides claim to do just that. Many skincare brands boost of their supremacy as their anti-aging creams and lotions have copper peptides. The other day my dermatologist suggested that I use a copper peptide cream to combat forehead lines.

What was this ‘copper’ hoopla all about- I wondered! Was the Copper Peptide phenomenon another gimmick; an elixir that promised to be the fountain of youth but delivered very little? It was time to find out!

What are Copper Peptides?

Copper has been used since the early Egyptian times for its healing properties. It freely exists within our tissue. When the amount of copper begins to deplete in our body it paves the way for several degenerative problems, skin degeneration being one of them. Just as copper is found freely in the body, peptides, too, are present within the body. Peptides are protein fragments which have an affinity of binding to copper. Such bonded peptides are called copper peptides who work wonders in skin repair and tissue regeneration.

How do Copper Peptides work?

Copper peptides function by promoting the synthesis of proteoglycans, elastin, and glycosaminoglycans  aiding to reduce wrinkle appearance and formation. Since peptides contain protein (they are tissue builders) they help in skin cell regeneration. Studies also reveal that creams containing copper peptides help in increasing collagen responsible to maintain skin firmness and elasticity.

Benefits of Copper Peptides

Wrinkles, lines, skin creases, furrows…call them whatever you may; they are an inevitable part of the ageing process.

Benefits of using creams or serums with copper peptides are:

  • Improved skin clarity
  • Firmer and tauter skin
  • Improved skin elasticity
  • Better skin density
  • Reduced the appearance of pigmentation
  • Increased keratinocyte creation

The verdict

While copper peptides are quite safe when it comes to ironing out wrinkles for most people, some of us do experience some side effects. However, these side effects are a result of overuse which would include using too much copper peptide too often. Some of the side effects could be skin sagging and looseness, skin irritation or redness. However, these are temporary conditions that heal within a few days. Consult a dermatologist before you begin your copper peptide regime; to get optimal results.

    There are also some types of peptides aside from copper peptides there is Acetyl Hexapeptide-3,Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-3 and Palmitoyl oligopeptide,which I think can also help reduce the signs of aging.

    Thanks for posting this. yes i used Copper Peptides as Well it improved my skin glow. the peptide even further and developed Melanotan II which was an even more effective sunless tanning agent. Both Melanotan I and II are synthetic hormones of melanocyte stimulating hormone that is responsible for darkening the pigment of your skin when exposed to sunlight. Melanotan I is a linear, full length peptide [containing all 13 amino acids]. Melanotan II is a shortened, circular version of the same peptide.

    Copper peptides have a copper molecule attached to them. Copper is useful in healing damaged skin as well as promoting collagen production. GHK copper peptides are a specific copper peptide shown to be effective for healing skin damage. This is especially useful for skin that has undergone procedures such as dermabrasion or laser resurfacing, since these processes usually slightly damage the outer layers of the skin.

    Copper peptides are considered effective in skin regeneration and helps to firm, smooth and soften skin faster than most other anti-aging products.
    Copper peptides are a combination of peptides or small proteins and copper. The powerful compound promotes and produces collagen and elastin production, which in turn improves the firmness and elasticity of skin. It also may be able to remove fine lines and, because of its antioxidant properties, it neutralizes damaging free radicals.

    I found a solution to MY wrinkles, an all natural solution. I noticed that it decreased and even reversed my facial and body hair. After only a couple of weeks I also noticed my age spots shrinking and vanishing. Its for your whole body, not just your face. It has a spf, smells like vanilla, and the information on the website really opened my eyes. Even though it is a 3 month supply, mine last at least four months.
    I just love it, and so do the people Ive turned onto it.
    Its a bit pricey, but when you add up all that you get, its cheaper then purchasing creams from the store.
    Check out the site, even if you deceide not to buy it, at least you will be more informed on beauty products you might be using.
