Peptides are an ingredient found in many skin care products, yet many people do not understand their function. In this video, Joel Schlessinger MD explains what peptides are, why they are important for a healthy complexion and which peptide products are his favorites.

Joel Schlessinger MD explains that peptides are made up of amino acids that are considered the building blocks of the human body. Amino acids and peptides in skin care products help build a strong and healthy complexion.

Peptides make up collagen that supports the structure of skin. Collagen gives skin its structure and, as it ages, peptides begin to fall off leaving a weak and damaged complexion. Stimulating cells with peptides found in skin care products or procedures encourages more collagen growth for a more youthful and healthy look.

In this video, Joel Schlessinger MD recommends three of his favorite peptide products. The first is StriVectin-SD Power Serum for Wrinkles, a powerful serum that can be applied daily to stimulate collagen and help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

One specific type of peptides are copper peptides that combine this collagen-enhancing ingredient with copper to heal the complexion. Joel Schlessinger MD recommends Neova Crème de la Copper which revives and nourishes cells.

Another group of peptides is known as neuropeptides and can be found in Clinician’s Complex Peptide Serum. This product repairs and rejuvenates to reduce the depth of wrinkles for a youthful complexion.
