The Benefits of Copper Peptides

There’s little like a nourishing facial to give your complexion some worthy TLC. Along with the technique of your provider, the ingredients in your facial can make a substantial difference in just how beneficial your treatment is. 

If you’re looking for deep hydration and reduced irritation, you may want to consider copper peptides.

At Sterling Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery in Sarasota, Florida, Dr. Mark Mathieson and his team of aestheticians offer numerous facials, including a copper moisturizing mask, to improve your skin’s appearance. Take a few moments to learn more about copper peptides and how they might benefit your skin.

What exactly are copper peptides?

Peptides are amino acids that occur naturally and combine with copper in the body to promote the production of collagen and elastin. These connective tissues give your skin its firm, smooth appearance. 

As you age, smoke, or spend time in the sun, however, you can lose significant amounts of both, leading to accelerated skin aging.

Skin benefits of copper peptides

Because copper peptides help your skin produce more collagen and elastin, they can make for a more vibrant, youthful appearance.

Research also shows that copper peptides function like antioxidants, which work against toxic substances that can damage the skin and make way for common issues such as sagginess and fine lines. 

At Sterling Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, we provide a copper moisturizing mask that nourishes dry, irritated skin. After your copper facial, your skin feels calmer, refreshed, and deeply hydrated. 

These benefits can be especially useful if you’re prone to dry skin or live in a dry or cold climate.

If you have copper peptide treatments routinely, the boosted collagen and elastin production that may follow can lead to smoother skin, smaller pores, and even reduced age spots. 

Additional skin-enhancing ingredients

In addition to copper peptide facials, we provide facials that contain green papaya, which helps to exfoliate and resurface your skin. This facial can also increase collagen production. 

Our vitamin C antioxidant mask helps rejuvenate your skin by bringing about softness and radiance, thanks to the healing benefits of this vitamin.

Dr. Sterling offers NeovaSmartSkincare, which contains both DNA-repair enzymes and copper peptides, to treat signs of photodamage. 

He can also recommend gentle cleansers and intense moisturizers in the EltaMD skin care product line to help you maintain your facial benefits between treatments and invite numerous anti-aging benefits for your skin.
