GHK-Cu (Copper Peptides) is a type of skincare ingredient with several benefits for the skin, including wound healing, collagen production, and anti-aging. It can also help reduce inflammation and hyperpigmentation.

For these reasons, Copper Peptides can benefit skincare routines before and after non-invasive procedures, such as laser treatments, micro-needling, dermabrasion, and chemical peels. These procedures can cause temporary damage to the skin, and Copper Peptides, the great wound healer, can help to speed up the healing process and reduce the risk of scarring.

In addition, Copper Peptides can help improve the skin's overall appearance after non-invasive procedures. They can help reduce redness, uneven pigmentation, fine lines, and wrinkles.

Here are some of the benefits of using Copper Peptides after non-invasive procedures:

  • Speed up healing time
  • Reduce the risk of scarring
  • Improve skin texture and tone
  • Reduce redness and inflammation
  • Fade hyperpigmentation
  • Boost collagen production
  • Promote skin cell regeneration

According to Joshua Zeichner, Director of Cosmetic and Clinical Research at Mount Sinai's Department of Dermatology in New York, "Copper Peptides have antibacterial and anti-fungal properties, which help prevent infections. That is why it has been used in wound care since the 60s."

 If you want to enhance the results of your non-invasive skincare procedures, a high-quality Copper Peptide product can be a great option.

Vitali's Skin Cell Restorative Serum is perfect for use before, during and after aesthetic procedures. In addition to high-quality GHK-Cu, Vitali Serum is formulated with hyaluronic acid, an excellent humectant that can help to reduce inflammation and keep the skin hydrated. Hydrating the skin is important for healing because dehydrated skin is more prone to inflammation and scarring. The serum's Giant Sea Kelp (brown algae) contains Fucoidan, which also has anti-inflammatory properties and can help reduce inflammation and swelling, speeding up the healing process.

Consider adding the Vitali’s Hydration Boost (100% Organic Squalane Oil)which is a very soothing oil that can help to calm the skin after a procedure. It can help reduce itchiness, burning, and pain. It also aids the skin by forming a protective barrier that can help reduce damage from the sun, wind, and pollution. That is important because the skin is more vulnerable to injury after an esthetic procedure.

I spoke with Teresa Berry, RN and Managing Director of The Spa Midtown in Memphis, about her experience combining Vitali Restorative Serum with micro-needling. "At the Spa Midtown, we apply Vitali Serum to the skin before micro-needling, allowing the serum to sink into the skin through the microneedle. Apply before micro-needling enable the body to absorb the peptides while simultaneously 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 Vitali Serum with Copper Peptides, the results are better and achieved in almost half the time."

The before and after photos show the results of micro needling with Vitali Serum.  The results shown are after only three micro needling treatments with regular Vitali Serum use in between.

Topical GHK-Cu can penetrate the stratum corneum, which ensures its activity in skincare formulations. Because of its ability to improve wound healing, it is recommended after plastic surgery, chemical peels, dermabrasion, laser treatment, etc.
