The anti-aging power of proprietary peptides
Aging starts beneath the skin surface within the extracellular matrix (ECM).1 This skin structure is constantly in flux and involved in age-related skin changes, wound healing, and communication between skin cells.2,3 Just like wounds that need repair, aging skin needs a healthy ECM to support a youthful appearance.
In our research, NEOCUTIS scientists set out to address the key components of the ECM that impact the appearance of skin as it ages: collagen (especially types I, II, and VII), elastin, and hyaluronic acid. Using decades of collective expertise, our researchers developed a collection of peptides (specialized proteins) that help support these building blocks of skin.
Addresses visible signs of aging
Unretouched photos of actual study subjects. Results based on a study of 39 subjects who applied MICRO NIGHT twice daily for six months. Results may vary.
Boosts 3 types of collagen:
⇑180% Collagen I: coarse fiber allows skin to stretch without breaking
⇑120% Collagen III: finer fiber helps strengthen skin
⇑97% Collagen VII: connects the dermis to the epidermis(outer to inner layers of skin)
Enhances elastin ⇑161%
Supports hyaluronic acid production ⇑64%
These results reflect the maximum effects of proprietary peptides obtained from in vitro testing.4
