Works wonders to prevent wrinkles from occurring and to correct them once they have!
Wrinkles form as the result of either one of the following or in time, a culmination of all three. The first signs of wrinkles are the ones we usually accept and which are caused by our facial expressions. These are known as ‘expression lines,’ such as laugh lines.
With the passage of time, medium wrinkles start appearing and are more of a cause for concern. These will eventually develop into deeper wrinkles as a result of skin aging. This occurs due to certain changes in our bodies, namely biochemical, histological and physiological changes.
So, how does the aging process work? Our skin is made up of three layers, from the outer layer, the epidermis to the next layer, the dermis and the deeper layer which is known as the hypodermis.
Fibroblasts are a type of cell within the skin which secretes proteins, especially molecular collagen from which the extracellular fibrillar matrix of connective tissue forms. This matrix is composed of collagen, elastin fibrils, glycosaminoglycans, polysaccharides, and proteoglycans.
With aging, these fibroblasts progressively lose their matric connections and activity.
We often say that with age, our skin loses its ‘elasticity’. The reason for this is that fibroblasts produce elastic and collagen, which is essential to maintain the integrity of connective tissue and to keep the epidermis firm.
With age, the number of fibroblasts in the skin and also their synthetic activity is reduced and less collagen is produced. The connective tissue is degraded, the skin becomes thinner and wrinkles are formed, which then deepen with age.
There are also environmental aspects involved. The ozone layer is constantly becoming thinner leading to the UVA/UVB radiation becoming more intense and harmful. UVA & UVB radiation accelerate skin aging process.
Peptumax by Coverderm offers a unique action in the fight against the formation of wrinkles. It does this by utilising the benefits offered by ‘peptides,’ which in simple terms are portions of proteins. These small chains of amino-acids are extremely effective and offer a safe, non-irritant solution for use in cosmetic products.
Recognised as an incredible scientific breakthrough in cosmetology, these powerful peptides are molecules which stimulate macromolecular synthesis. They also inhibit metabolic processes and trigger protective cellular actions.
Peptides are effective in making the skin look younger because they signal the skin to produce more collagen and other macromolecules, they block the transmission of signals from nerves to facial muscles. Besides this, they also protect cells from sun damage.
Two of Peptumax’s ingredients, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide and Palmitoyl Teltrapeptide–7 are two ‘biomimicking’ peptides which are naturally recognised by the cell. They are actually identical to the collagen messenger which is found in everyone’s skin and which stimulates the collagen synthesis of fibroblasts.
By utilising these ingredients, Peptumax’s products are able to effectively delay the aging process by protecting existing collagen and elastin fibres, stimulating the collagen and synthesis of fibroblasts and reactivating the dynamics of new structural tissue generation.
In this way, Peptumax’s products offer a total anti-wrinkle management system. One of the main causes of wrinkles is photo-aging, caused by inflammation, disease, edema, premature aging, burning and actinic lesions. These products overcome this by garnering the actions of biomimicking peptides such as Diaminopropionyl Tripeptide – 33 which protects cells from UVA-induced damages and promotes the DNA repair system of skin cells.
Peptumax’s products also offer an effective solution when it comes to counteracting exposure to UV radiation as follows:UV Exposure: More damage to the immune system (Largenhans cells). Peptumax Action: This involves PROTECTION using CM-Glucan Phytosphigosine. UV Exposure: An increase of free radicals Peptumax Action: This involves INHIBITION using Venuceane. UV Exposure: An increases of substances released during inflammation (Interleukin). Peptumax Action: This involves INHIBITION using CM-Glucan Phytosphigosine. UV Exposure: More damage to DNA Peptumax Action: This involves PROTECTION & REPAIR using Diaminopropionyl Tripeptide – 33.
And now for a closer look at the Peptumax products for the face, neck and eyes:
Peptumax Serum. This concentrated formula is an incredibly effective treatment of wrinkles, even the deepest ones. Based on the combination of five biomimicking peptides, namely Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, Acetyl Octapeptide-3, Diaminopropionyl Tripeptide-33, the ingredients of this product also include Nasturtium Officinale Extract and Venuceane, which offers protection of epidermal cells, fibroblasts and DNA.
This product is ophthalmologically tested.
How to use: Apply to your face, neck, eye area before the application of Peptumax Visage or Peptumax Yeux.
Peptumax Visage. This product visibly reduces fine lines and wrinkles caused by aging and facial expressions with the revolutionary combination of state-of-the-art biomimicking peptides, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Acetyl Hexapeptide – 8, Acetyl Octapeptide-3, Diaminopropionyl Tripeptide – 33 and Nasturtium Officinale Extract.
This prevents and fights wrinkles caused by UV exposure with CM-Glucan and the biomimicking peptide Diaminopropionyl Tripeptide – 33 which stimulate the skin’s own defense mechanism. This product also increases skin elasticity and moisturisation.
How to use: Apply every day and night over face and neck as your facial anti-wrinkle cream.
Peptumax Yeux. Crow’s feet are those wrinkles which form around the eyes and are usually the first to appear. This area around the eyes is extremely sensitive. Here is a product which dramatically reduces these fine lines and wrinkles in the area around the eyes with the innovative combination of the biomimicking peptides, Palymitoyl Tetrapeptide-7, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, Acetyl Octapeptide-3 and Diaminopropionyl Tripeptide – 33.
Other ingredients are Nasturtium Officinale Extract and Phytosphigosine, which is the most effective anti-inflammatory active ingredient. This product increases skin elasticity and moisturisation.
This product is ophthalmologically tested.
How to use: Apply twice daily using light massaging motions of the area around the eyes.
