Palmitoyl Oligopeptide - studies have proven that this ingredient can refuel Collagen production by 350% & Hyaluronic Acid production by 146% - amino acids Glycine, Glutamine, Proline and Arginine make up this particular form of Oligopeptide

  • Mimics skins natural trigger for accelerated collagen synthesis
  • Reduces depth of wrinkles & skin roughness
  • Deeply penetrating properties that encourage skins natural healthy function & elasticity
  • increase in Hyaluronic Acid provides plumpness from within , combating lines & deep wrinkles
  • Works synergistically with Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 promoting overall skin healing & regeneration

Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 - Compound which combines several chains of amino acids to reduce skin inflammation and related skin damage

  • Stimulates regeneration of collagen fibres in the dermis by acting as a cellular messenger
  • Increases hyaluronic acid helping to tighten skin by attracting moisture to the epidermis
  • Skin penetration enhancer
  • Decreases inflammation by suppressing Interleukin (created in response to damage) which leads to cellular deterioration
  • Accelerates healing by relieving chemical pressure on the skin
  • Induces natural collagen production for skin healing and rejuvenation
  • Symptoms of rosacea maybe alleviated
  • Reduce the appearance of uneven skin tones

Transexamic Acid

  • Research indicates it can aid the reduction of hyperpigmentation & hormonally induced melasma due to its impact on melanin production
  • Shown to strengthen the skin barrier function serving as a shield that helps retain moisture & inhibit toxin & irritant penetration thus reducing inflammatory responses
  • Assists resolution in rosacea symptoms & accelerated ageing
  • Derivative of the amino acid lysine that is used to control bleeding, helps blood to clot
  • An antifibrinolytic agent that is beneficial in treating erythematotelangiectatic rosacea, a type of rosacea that presents with facial flushing and persistent redness
  • Can helps to reduce acne & related discolourations & redness

Acetyl Tetrapeptide-2 Biomimetic Peptide (EGCG - Epigallocatechin-3-Gallate)

  • Active constituent of Green Tea - Initiates NRF-2, the master switch for anti-oxidant signalling
  • Protects ECM degradation & modulates inflammation
  • Shields DNA, membrane integrity & skin structure

                                                                                                                                                Nonapeptide–1 – skin lightening biomimetic peptide which works through the antagonism to alpha melanocyte stimulating hormone, inhibits the hormone signal that activates the melanocyte to produce melanin, thus preventing and lightening hyperpigmentation

  • Antagonist of α-MSH
  • Prevents tyrosinase activity
  • Inhibits by 33% the synthesis of melanin induced by α-MSH. Tyrosinase inhibition reduces the formation of unwanted pigmentation allowing for control over skin tone and brown spots.
  • Biomimetic peptide antagonist specific of the α-MSH. Biomimetic peptides are identical to the skin’s peptides,  and are acting on the physiological mechanisms of the skin with a high specificity. 
  • Competes against the natural ligand (a-MSH) on it’s specific receptor(MC1-R) by preventing any further activation of the tyrosinase, and thus blocking melanin synthesis

  • Moisturizes the skin
  • Improves the skin's natural moisture factor
  • Stimulates collagen renewal
  • Firms the skin
  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

Carnosine –  Natural component found in skin tissues that has potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. More precisely, carnosine is a dipeptide — a combination of two amino acids, alanine and histidine

  • Protecting against skin aging by fighting free radicals and reducing protein degradation.
  • Increasing cells lifespan.
  • Accelerating wound healing.
  • Reducing cellular damage.
  • Increasing the ability of fibroblasts (cells that can synthesize collagen) and appear to reduce the telomere shortening rate.
  • skin-soothing and antioxidant properties that allow it to protect against oxidative stress and perform anti-aging capabilities

      I am so happy i found MD. At the beginning of the year i was suffering with post pill acne for the first time in my life and felt so hopeless with my skin. I had a consult with Mel who made me feel so welcomed and hopeful about what we could do for my skin and even gut health (which was affecting my skin). I then continued to get treatments with tayla, who has been so great every single time. The ladies here are so kind, offer you knowledge about the treatments and take care of you the entire process. I recommend this place to all my friends and family, I LOVE IT. ❤️

    • Suzi Adams

      When I first came to MD Cosmetics three years ago, I wanted skin that was healthy enough to no longer feel like I needed to wear foundation. And I can honestly say that goal came true - I almost never wear make up anymore! Mel and the team always make me feel pampered and comfortable. They have totally changed my skin and I’m so grateful I found this place!

    • Emma Wallace

      I have had several treatments with Nurse Laura Barnes at MD and I am thrilled with the service I received and my fantastic results. Laura is so knowledgeable yet approachable and sweet. Thank you MD! I’ll be coming back for years!

    • Tracey Higgins

      Treated myself to visiting MD Cosmetics & I’m hooked. Can’t go past the Professional & Friendly service offered by Mel & her team. Excellent results. Very happy!!
