Mechanisms of Action
With its tissue repair properties, GHK encourages tissue renewal and restores the biomechanical properties of the skin. It is used to fight the aging process and reduce the appearance of sagging skin, wrinkles, and other manifestations of skin aging. Skin aging is influenced by genetics, UV, mechanical stress, hormonal changes, pollution, and metabolic processes (generation of reactive chemical compounds such as activated oxygen species). These factors lead to cumulative alterations of appearance, function, and skin structure, such as modifications in the architecture of the extracellular matrix (ECM).
