This is definitely the “peptide age“ that we’re living. Biomimetic peptides are considered a major advance in the clinical management of aging skin. These molecules are the present and future of the medical cosmetic industry. This is due to the characteristics of the latest generation of peptides, which have a well-defined amino acid sequence, are analytically pure, and show a specific and well-documented biological activity.
Natural processes within the body are modulated almost exclusively by the interaction of specific amino acid sequences. With age, the natural peptides lose their effectiveness and the skin starts to look older, with the appearance of thinner skin, fine and deep wrinkles, sagging, flaccidity and blemishes. Peptides act as messengers, enhancing the flow of information needed to repair skin damage and helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and hyper-pigmentation.
The role of peptides in cosmetics today is primarily within the anti-ageing segment due to their deep-skin repair effects through fibroblast stimulation, cell regeneration and increased skin adhesion effects, accompanied by the effective targeting of expression lines and thereby implementing a multiple anti-ageing efficacy (firming, re-densification, cell bio stimulation).
Peptides are also being developed to aid in the stimulation of hair vitality and the regulation of sensitive skin hyper reactivity. One of the most interesting applications for peptides in cosmetics is their use in eye contour treatments, through a true re-building effect that promises to smooth wrinkles, diminish puffiness and dark circles, reduce eyelid sagging and thicken eyebrows and eyelashes.
Bioactive peptides provide not only an extraordinarily wide range of active ingredients, but also a technology platform capable of being developed and targeted to form-fit specific skin types, skin colors, skin ages, and skin conditions.
Skin aging is a complex process that affects all its layers and structure and changes the functional properties of the intracellular matrix.
A wide range of biomimetic peptides with different mechanisms of action can be applied to solve this problem. By imitating the action of naturally occurring growth factors and cytokines, they are able to bind to the specific receptors, regulate gene transcription, and provide a stimulating effect on keratinocytes and fibroblasts. However, the target genes of different peptides are different; hence, the maximum effect is achieved only by the combined application of several biomimetic peptides.
