Neuropeptide Technology: Delivering the Luxury of Firmer-Looking Skin

Too firm, too soft, just right. We’re all bound to have different preferences when it comes to the firmness level of, say, a mattress, a pillow, even a piece of fruit. But when it comes to our skin, there’s one thing we can likely agree on—the firmer its appearance, the better. While healthy lifestyle decisions are certainly a major contributing factor to the health and appearance of your skin, the right topical skincare products can have a huge impact as well. After all, we don’t call it the Three-Tiered Solution for nothing; our targeted skincare solutions play a role too, using advanced ingredients to help restore your skin’s appearance. So if it’s firmer-looking skin you want, it’s firmer looking skin you’ll get thanks to Dr. Perricone’s proprietary Neuropeptide technology which helps firm, lift and tone the appearance of sagging skin. But first, let’s start with the most obvious question...

What are Neuropeptides?

Neuropeptides are small, protein-like molecules in the body that play a number of roles. When released by brain cells, they communicate with other molecules and act as either neurotransmitters or hormones:
  • Neurotransmitters are able to stop or start signals to specific parts of the body
  • Hormones affect the functions of organs and tissues
Aside from being responsible for a number of physical and emotional processes—controlling pain, pleasure, mood, body weight, providing energy, forming memories, aiding in immune system regulation, and allowing for the ability to problem solve—neuropeptides also serve as the activation point for cellular function in your skin. As you might have already guessed, that whole “cellular function” piece is what’s most important in the science of aging.

What Can Neuropeptide Technology Do for My Skin?

Among all the specialized ingredients and sciences in our Perricone MD skincare collections, Neuropeptide technology in particular plays a key role in topical skin renewal, working to help energize and tone your skin for visible face-firming effects and to regain a more vibrant texture and glow. Since the levels of neuropeptides within our bodies naturally diminish as we age, there’s a pretty good chance our skin could benefit from complementing natural neuropeptide activity. When applied on the surface, neuropeptides can help revive dullness, minimize discoloration, reduce the appearance of under eye circles and fine lines and wrinkles and firm skin.

A Neuropeptide Solution to Fit Your Needs

The neuropeptides in our skincare treatments provide anti-aging technology that—particularly when combined with other potent (yet non-invasive) ingredients—can deliver visible results, ultimately enhancing the overall appearance of healthy, beautiful skin. Two of the most important of these ingredients are Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) and DMAE, which help correct visible loss of firmness, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and more. Whether working alone or alongside neuropeptides, these powerful ingredients play a role in yielding a more youthful-looking complexion.
