Explaining the Science Behind Peptides

Q:  What are peptides?

A:  Peptides are short chains of amino acids or protein fragments that act in a similar way to to a key and a lock. Peptides are the keys that carry a specific message to produce collagen, reduce pigmentation or renew cells while they unlock receptors' pathways to that activity in the skin.


Q: Why are peptides so important for skin?

A: Peptides offer your skincare a scientifically backed way of rebuilding skin tissues from the inside out, the most efficient way possible. By applying certain topical peptides to your skin, you're nourishing the skin with a protein-rich diet that strengthens and realigns the building blocks of the skin.


Q: Which products do Refined Day Spa estheticians recommend?

PCA SKIN uses next generation peptides, meaning they are the most up-to-date, scientifically engineered and backed by research.

ExLinea® Peptide Smoothing Serum is the only PCA product that features the peptide Argireline that actively works for 12 hours to visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles upon application.

Perfecting Neck & Décolleté and Total Strength Serum both contain palmitoyl tripeptide-38, which increases the production of three different types of collagen, among other skin components, to strengthen skin, leading to a smoother, more youthful appearance.
