Hi, I have not noticed a significant difference but I have only been using it for 2 days. I began with the CP but that was not strong enough for me so I advanced to the super and super COP. I am also using a 30% AHA cream because I want to eliminate some scarring on my face (I am an ex picker!). I am also using the 8% AHA around my eyes along with the copper to eliminate fine lines. I will try it for a few months and post a response. Allyssa

Hi all. I just wanted to give you an update on my progress with the CP Serum. Well, at first I noticed such a drastic difference in my skin. I mean I noticed a dramatic difference within a few days. Well, I've been using it for a couple of months now & it seems like it isn't working anymore. Either that or my skin has just gotten used to it.
Are you supposed to take a break or anything (apply it in cycles?) Has anyone else experienced this? I'm so bummed. :( I was so excited that I saw such fast improvements, but now.....nothing.

It seems to work for me in cycles, too. I use vitamin and retinoids in the interim.

Do you mean that your skin has reverted to its initial condition, or that you kept your initial improvement but stopped improving further?

Oh, no...my skin did improve. It still looks better than before I started on the CP. But it seems like it is not improving any further. It seemed like it's plateaued (sp?) Maybe I should stop using it for a while & then start again?

Nothing provides endless improvement. Even the most effective ingredients palteau after a while, although some plateau later than others. Keep in mind that since you are swimming against the tide, i.e. the aging process, getting some improvement and then keeping it is already a good result. That said, you can switch to a product with another mechanism of action for a while and see how it goes, and then return to CP only, or to CP + another product.

Based on a few comments on this string...I've been using copPep for like 6 weeks now, I too noticed that it's not so good to put right on top of a wound when it's still open...I put hydrogen peroxide on the newly open wound (an extracted pimple for example) then let it begin to heal (over night for example) when there is a scab but it's a new one...That's when I put on the CopPep I've had really smooth results of any blemishes I've had since starting this method. You can tell it won't leave a scar in the future at all!

So far I like the copPeptides, I'm hoping that they'll just improve my skin a little and then keep me at the level of skin health I'm at now for years longer than I would have otherwise...

I just started using IS Clinical Super Serum Advance +, which contains 15% l-ascorbic and copper tripeptide growth factor...and wouod love your thoughts on this product. I replaced it with the Ckinceutical Phloretin and CE Ferulic. Apparently, an ion was removed from the "c" molecule, thus rendering it "stable" and compatible with copper....

Ingredients:

Water/ Aqua/ Eau, Ascorbic Acid, Hyaluronic Acid, Pentylene Glycol, Urea, Glucose, Guanidine, Tripeptide-1, Arbutin, Polyporus Umbellatus (Mushroom) Extract, Calcium Pentothenate, Asiaticoside, Asiatic Acid, Zinc Sulfate, Glycerin, Phenoxyethanol.
