GHK-Cu, the primary ingredient in Restoracell's trio of copper peptide products, was first studied for wound healing in 1983. Since then, numerous studies have demonstrated that GHK-Cu improves wound healing and tissue regeneration and stimulates collagen production. Therefore, it is not surprising that Restoracell with copper peptides can be a perfect partner for aesthetic procedures.
Several medical spas are now using Restoracell products with their aesthetic procedures with very positive results. Copper peptides are often recommended after non-invasive skin procedures such as laser resurfacing, dermabrasion, chemical peels, and micro-needling.
Microneedling, also called Collagen Induction Therapy, is a minimally invasive technique. It uses very tiny needles to gently puncture the upper layer of skin and create microscopic channels within the dermal and epidermal layers of skin. This process works to rejuvenate skin by boosting collagen production, which reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines and refines the skin’s overall texture.
I spoke with Teresa Berry, RN and Managing Director of The Spa Midtown in Memphis, about her experience combining copper peptides with microneedling. "At the Spa Midtown, we apply Restoracell Serum to the skin before microneedling allowing the serum to sink into the skin by way of the microneedle. This allows the body to absorb the copper peptides while at the same time stimulating the body's naturing healing process."
"The serum is applied after the procedure to allow penetration into the skin before the channels are closed. You have 60-90 minutes after the treatment."
"We have been performing these procedures for years with good results says Berry. However, after integrating Restoracell, the results are not only better but they are achieved in almost half the time."
The before and after photos in this post show the results of microneedling with Restoracell. The results shown are after only three microneedling treatments with regular Restoracell use in between.
