If you’re looking for proven, fast-acting wrinkle-reducing results, then Liquid Peptides is your new go-to formula. Used in professional treatments and loved by skincare experts across the globe, this advanced daily peptide serum boasts an innovative take on traditional peptide technology, to deliver maximum age-defying results in a matter of days. ‘How?’ we hear you ask.
To truly appreciate the unique formula that is Liquid Peptides, we first need to understand what peptides are and what they do for the skin. So, let’s dive into the science.
WHAT ARE PEPTIDES?
Peptides are short chains of amino acids, linked together by peptide bonds. There are 20 individual, naturally-occurring amino acids which can be linked together in any order to give millions of different peptide combinations - each helping to tackle different skin concerns. Peptides are also the building blocks of proteins. Our skin is naturally overflowing with different kinds of proteins and peptides, including some of the most important; collagen and elastin (which are both responsible for retaining the skin’s natural strength and resilience). When applied to the skin, peptides can act as communicators, triggering particular responses in certain skin cells. In doing so they give your skin a specific instruction to do ‘something’, and that ‘something’ entirely depends on what order the amino acids are in. Every peptide has a unique superpower to target different skin concerns.
SO WHAT MAKES LIQUID PEPTIDES DIFFERENT?
Recognising that different peptide combinations pose endless age-defying abilities (and do so much more for the skin than simply boost collagen production), Medik8 has taken traditional peptide technology to the next level with Liquid Peptides. Formulated with 10 distinct peptides (a collection of our favourites), the crystal-clear serum uses a pioneering drone-targeted delivery system to ensure that each potent peptide can dive deep into the skin - to where it’s needed most - to deliver its specific youth-boosting action. Working across multiple pathways, our 10 chosen peptides deliver maximum visible results on the look of fine lines, wrinkles and skin volume. This peptide serum ultimately helps to both slow and prevent the appearance of expression lines and deep-set wrinkles. Its 30% peptide blend also works to instantly hydrate the skin, making this multifaceted peptide cocktail the ideal formula for ageing, dry and dehydrated skin types.
THE FORMULA SPECIFICS
With Medik8’s unique blend of 10 potent peptides and innovative delivery technology, Liquid Peptides works to support the skin’s natural age-defying functions in tackling and preventing multiple visible signs of ageing - all at once. The formula stars:
MATRIXYL™ 3000: Fragments of collagen which help to promote visibly firmer, plumper skin where the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles is reduced.
Drone-Targeted Copper Peptide: Encapsulated in a polymer system, it dives through the layers of the skin to where it’s needed most to specifically support collagen-producing cells. It also works to help improve the feel of skin elasticity while offering antioxidant protection against external stressors.
Expression Line Peptide: An innovative peptide which works to visibly minimise the appearance of expression lines. This helps to leave the skin with a smoother, more youthful-looking appearance.
Carnosine: An anti-A.G.E. protective peptide that is naturally produced in the body. Carnosine helps to block skin-damaging sugars from binding to collagen in the skin, therefore helping to prevent the appearance of wrinkles.
Multi-Weight Hyaluronic Acid: With a unique ability to attract and retain more than 1,000x its own weight in water, hyaluronic acid draws moisture from the lower layers of the skin into the upper layers, leaving the complexion both nourished and supple.
Liquid Peptides is proven to improve the look of skin plumpness and firmness in just 7 days as well as visibly reduce fine lines, expression lines and wrinkles in 4 weeks.
The formula also delivers instant skin hydration which further aids in preventing the formation of visible wrinkles. Liquid Peptides is tested on all skin tones and is proven to be gentle on the skin.
