MESOTHERAPY WITH GHK PEPTIDES
Copper peptides are among the most talked about beauty trends right now. Peptides are naturally occurring amino acids that can help produce collagen and elastin, two types of connective tissues responsible for smooth and firm skin.
Peptides are known in the scientific community as glycyl-L-histidyl-L-lysine (GHK), which can easily bind with copper enzymes. Since the symbol for copper on the periodic table of elements is Cu, this combination is called GHK-Cu
WHAT ARE GHK PEPTIDES ?
The human copper-binding peptide GHK-Cu (glycyl-l-histidyl-l-lysine) is a small, naturally occurring tri-peptide present in human plasma that also can be released from tissues in case of an injury. Since its discovery in 1973, GHK-Cu established itself as a powerful protective and regenerative ingredient, which is currently widely used in skin and hair products.
HOW DOES GHK PEPTIDE STIMULATE HAIR GROWTH ?
The tripeptide-copper complex, described as a growth factor for various kinds of differentiated cells, promotes the growth of human hair follicles, and this stimulatory effect may occur due to stimulation of the proliferation and the preclusion of the apoptosis of DPCs.
HOW IS GHK MESOTHERAPY PERFORMED ?
Mesotherapy is a non-invasive and non-surgical cosmetic medicine treatment used to restore volume and luster to thinning hair. It involves inserting micro-injections of pharmaceutical agents, amino acids, vitamins, and others into the epidermal layer of the skin. This stimulates the mesoderm layer and encourages hair growth and promotes new hair production.
