Our revolutionary collagen peptide is a cream you can apply at home daily. With a potent punch of antioxidants and other anti-aging ingredients, this formulation will keep your skin looking and feeling its best. Use it alone, in combination with other medical-grade skin care or after one of our anti-aging treatments to see the full benefits of this formulation.

The Collagen Secret

Collagen – or rather, loss of it – is a key factor in the aging process. This protein is produced by the body in abundance during our youth, supporting the skin’s structure and giving our complexions a smooth, supple texture. As early as our 20s, our bodies begin to produce less collagen, with a steady decrease in the protein every year.

Less collagen in the dermal layers leads to skin laxity and the formation of wrinkles. While we can’t do anything to stop collagen loss entirely, certain factors like cigarette smoke and the sun’s rays can accelerate the depletion of collagen levels. This can lead to signs of aging on the skin long before we are ready to accept the passage of time.

The Peptide Solution Our collagen peptide formula features a healthy boost of palmitoyl pentapeptide-4. This ingredient has been shown in some clinical studies to stimulate the body’s production of collagen and elastin, even when those levels have been on the decline. By restoring collagen levels, we can effectively turn back time on the skin and reduce the signs of aging to create a more youthful appearance.

Protection for the Skin

While we can restore some of the collagen that has previously been lost in the skin, if we don’t provide any protection for the protein, the restoration won’t last long. Antioxidants are the key substances that protect the skin from environmental damage and free radicals that can accelerate the aging process. Our collagen peptide lotion contains white and green tea polyphenols, which offer powerful antioxidant properties.

Dehydration is another enemy of the skin and a significant factor in the aging process. Hyaluronic acid in the collagen peptide product restores hydration to the skin by helping the cells bind to water. Ceramide 2, also found in this formulation, provides additional hydration benefits through improved moisture retention. Better hydration means a fuller, plumper dermis with noticeably less fine lines and wrinkles.

Collagen Peptide vs. Retinol

At this time, retinol is considered one of the most potent anti-aging ingredients on the market today. While we recommend using both collagen peptide and retinol together for maximum benefits, some people may be sensitive to retinol products. In this case, the palmitoyl pentapeptide-4 in our collagen peptide has been shown in some studies to produce results similar to retinol but without the skin irritation. In addition, the other beneficial ingredients in the mix can further contribute to the overall health of the skin.

Our collagen peptide product can be used at home twice a day to produce skin that is smoother and softer, with noticeably fewer wrinkles. When this product is used after one of our anti-aging treatments, such as chemical peels or injectables, the results can be even more dramatic and long-lasting.
