Reviewed and Recommended: HydroPeptide

The Skin Studio is pleased to introduce select offerings from HydroPeptide. The HydroPeptide Eye, Face, Serum, Mask and Lip products compliment the Skin Studio's goals of providing a comprehensive nonsurgical skincare program.

Peptides are small chains of specifically engineered proteins. They act as cell messengers, and peptides used in skincare fall into two broad categories.

The first type are peptides that stimulate repair in skin tissues, such as Dipeptide-2, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-3, and Tripeptide-1.

Neuropeptides make up the second category, and function to relax wrinkle-causing muscle contractions. These include Acetyl Glutamyl Heptapeptide-3, Acetyl Hexapeptide-3 (also known as Argireline), Dipeptide Diacetate, and Hibiscus Extract.

Interestingly, the much-lauded anti-wrinkle peptide blend Matryxl 3000 by French laboratory Sederma is thought to be a mixture of Palmitoyl Oligopeptide and Palmitoyl Tripeptide, both of which are contained in HydroPeptide's offerings.

In both categories, each peptide has a slightly different action, which means that for the best skin-repairing and wrinkle-relaxing results, a blend of the known beneficial peptides is ideal.

In HydroPeptide, I have found not only the most comprehensive blend of peptides, but also the addition of several other skin-perfecting components, including growth factors, enzymes, hyaluronic acid, alpha hydroxy acids, and a potent range of free-radical-neutralizing antioxidants. Strategic inclusion HydroPeptide in your customized home care program in conjunction with scheduled in-studio treatments ensures the most advanced and dramatic level of skin rejuvenation.
