Are Peptides and Nanotechnologies Worth It?

Maybe you’ve seen peptides mentioned in skin care products—they’re touted as a great ingredient, but what exactly are they and are they worth it? RefinedMD is committed to only offering the absolute best in products and services, and that includes peptide-rich skin care products. The latest class of patented skin care products are largely from Carlsbad, California and have completely revolutionized skin care rejuvenation. Skin care lines you may know that use peptides include dermatologist favorites like DefenAge, Alastin, SkinMedica TNS, Sente, Hyalogy, and Revision. Are these skin care lines costlier than what you’d find at the store? Yes—and there’s a good reason for it.

Dermatologist-approved skin care lines are worth every penny. You won’t find them in stores because they are medical-grade and exclusively available in medical offices. If you do see them in stores or for sale on non-clinical sites, be wary. You only want to trust a reputable clinic for medical-grade skin care products. Otherwise, you might get stuck with a watered-down version (at worst) or a fake skin care product that could be harmful to your skin.

The Benefits of the Peptide-Rich Skin Care Products We Offer

DefenAge is a one of a kind skin care system that’s all about the defensin peptide. This peptide is naturally released in our body when we suffer an injury. It activates the resting stem cells that are found in our hair follicles. When these stem cells are activated, they make their way to the epidermal layer of our skin to repopulate the injured area with brand new cells. Now that’s rejuvenation! However, with DefenAge you don’t need to depend on your own body to cause cell repopulation. You can direct the defensin peptide directly to the site where you want rejuvenation to occur. You’ll start seeing results in just two weeks, but many clients see a big change in just a couple of days.

Sente is a nanotechnology-centric skin care line that creates the building blocks our skin needs to be young, healthy, and beautiful. Hyaluronic acid (HA) naturally occurs in our body, but we produce less of it as we age. Sente uses HA and other extracellular products to promote plumping and internal hydration. If you’ve heard of HA before, it’s because it’s the most popular type of dermal filler, and it can be used topically as well! Sente products are called “analogs” because they create molecules so tiny that they can actually penetrate through the skin. Some of the most popular Sente products include Dermal Contour Pressed Serum and Bio Complete Serum.

Alastin is also all about peptide technology, which they have dubbed TriHex tech. Alastin works by cleaning out the old, denatured dermal tissue so that your body can repair and replace the old with the new. There are specific Alastin products to be used before, during, and after a variety of in-office treatments, and there are also products created specifically for daily use. Alastin products in the Restorative line can be applied to the face, neck, around the eyes, and the entire body. The body line, TransFORM, is an economical product meant for larger skin areas.

Hyalogy is a Japanese product line that’s based on hyaluronic acid nanotechnology. It’s so cutting edge that the HA technology in Hyalogy was awarded a Nobel Prize! At RefinedMD, we carry a selective line of Hyalogy products including their best options for the face, eyes, and lips. The nanotechnology in these products lets the HA precursors penetrate the skin so that fresh, new HA develops in the dermis.
