You can think of the skin as an intricate network of collagen fibers, all intertwined and woven to form a protective barrier against the outside world. As we get older, the network of Collagen fibers become more disorganized and degraded, losing elasticity like a deflating balloon. When you’re younger, the body naturally replenishes and reorganizes the Collagen fibers that support the skin, but as you age, restoration becomes less and less.
Loss of support and poor Collagen levels culminate in the appearance of wrinkles. Mieux Dermas' C-Beta Collagen Restore is a volume building wonder serum that uses a combination of peptides and proteins, designed to boost your skins’ Collagen levels via a comprehensive 3 stage Collagen cycle. Restoring levels to that of younger skin effectively reduces wrinkles for a more youthful appearance.
• Restore types I, III and IV Collagen
• Structures and organizes Collagen fibrils
• Prevent the natural breakdown of Collagen
• Increases skin suppleness and elasticity
• Reduces wrinkles and fine lines
• Moisturizes and rehydrates
Mieux Dermas' C-Beta Collagen Restore works
with 3 key stages:
1. The synthesis of new Collagen
2. The control of Collagen fibril dimensions and
3. The inhibition of enzymatic destruction to avoid the
natural degrading process
Types I & IV Collagen fibrils have excellent tensile strength and elastic resistance. To promote this type of Collagen growth we use Pseudoalteromonas Ferment Extract. This ingenious ingredient is derived from elemental resistant bacteria discovered in Antarctica. The fermentation of this Bacterium contains a protein peptide composed of glycine, histidine and lysine
(chemically known as GHK). In nature, GHK functions by protecting the bacteria against the harsh Antarctic conditions. When delivered to the skin, these same properties are applied,
resulting in Collagen synthesis and skin regeneration.
In Vitro studies have shown this remarkable ingredient to produce up to 128% increase in Types I Collagen and up to 81% increase in Types IV Collagen synthesis.
To boost Collagen Type III we use Hydrolyzed Soy Protein (HSP) and Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein (HWP). By hydrolyzing, these natural proteins, they are broken down into key amino acids. These amino acids help boost the proliferation of Type III Collagen. Young skin contains a predominance of Type III Collagen, but it is slowly lost as you get older. This boost helps compensate for the youthful levels of collagen lost to aging.
To organize and arrange Collagen for better cohesion and stability, we use Tripeptide-10 Citrulline. This incredible peptide has proven to regulate fibrillogenesis and control fibril growth and size. With a more organized and uniform arrangement of Collagen fibers, the skin becomes more supple. This provides a higher resilience to stretching and helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
