What Is BPC-157 Peptide & Why It's Great For The Skin

BPC-157 is a peptide best known for its properties in wound healing and muscle building, BPC-157 also brings healing properties outside the gym. The same attributes that enable BPC-157 to build healthy muscle tissue can also serve to repair damaged or ailing skin. 

That same restorative and anti-aging process also happens at the skin surface and BPC-157 can catalyze that recovery as wellIn this article, we will explore what BPC-157 peptide is and how it can benefit your skin.

What is the BPC-157 peptide and how does it benefit the skin? 

BPC 157 also known as the healing peptide stands for Body Protective Compound composed of 15 amino acids which creates a process called angiogenesis, the formation of new blood vessels. This in turn creates more oxygen, nutrients, and minerals to tissues thus accelerating healing. BPC is an anti-inflammatory peptide, when placed on the skin it works on hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and most importantly increases collagen production. As we age, our body produces less collagen which causes wrinkles and loose skin. BPC 157 has been scientifically studied to reverse skin aging.

Is BPC-157 peptide safe to use in skincare products?

BPC 157 is safe to use in skincare products and even safe for pregnant women, unlike compounds like retinol. BPC is found naturally in the body in our gastric juice.

Can BPC-157 peptide help with skin aging and wrinkles?

BPC 157 can absolutely target skin aging and diminish wrinkles. BPC 157 also targets the formation of fibroblasts, which are vital for creating the structural protein of skin, bones, and connective tissue. Wrinkles are caused by diminished collagen levels. BPC is shown to potentiate the formation of new collagen.

How does BPC-157 peptide compare to other peptides in skincare?

BPC 157 is a unique skincare ingredient as it is proven to reduce inflammation, redness, and pigmentation. By stimulating angiogenesis, more oxygen and nutrients can reach the skin, thus enhancing the formation of collagen which reduces as we age, thus reversing the aging process.

What are the recommended usage instructions for BPC-157 peptide skincare products?

BPC-157 may be used twice daily applied to the face, neck, or hands. Even if you are recovering from a burn, scratch, or skin injury, BPC is vital for a faster recovery. To keep BPC lasting longer, it is recommended to refrigerate if possible especially if you do not think you will use the product within 30 days.

What types of skincare products contain BPC-157 peptide?

Doctor formulated peptide beauty lines such as Regen Labs Liquid Facelift are one of the innovators including BPC 157 in their skincare line. BPC 157 will only be found in high end products with proven results.

We specifically recommend the Liquid Facelift® from Regen Labs, because the formula is backed by years of research, created by world renowned Regenerative board certified Dr. Mark Ghalili, with customer testimonials showing transformative results!

How does BPC-157 peptide work on a cellular level to improve skin health and appearance?

BPC 157 is responsible for stimulating the production of angiogenic cytokines like Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor which creates the formation of new blood vessels. Fibroblast Growth Factors are increased leading to cell differentiation and proliferation. Studies have shown BPC can increase growth hormone levels in tendons and fibroblasts which may be the mechanism for its enhanced cellular skin repair capabilities.

BPC-157 is particularly strong at cell survival and cell migration, both integral to the healing process of human tissue. In scientific studies, BPC-157 was found to be instrumental in healing tissue. The researchers sought to measure the elements thought to be of greatest importance in the process of healing, which are formation of granulation tissue, angiogenesis and production of collagen. Their findings were thatin all experiments, significant differences …were found, showing a strong, promoting involvement of BPC in the healing process.

How long does it take to see results from using BPC-157 peptide on the skin?

The effects of BPC 157 on the skin can be immediate within one day. Anti-inflammatory effects are immediate, noticeable results should be seen within 30 days.
