STUDY OBJECTIVE To evaluate the role of skin care products that contain a copper tripeptide complex,
(GHK-Cu), in treating carbon dioxide (CO2) laser–resurfaced skin post procedure.
STUDY DESIGN Patients underwent skin resurfacing using a CO2 laser at standard settings. They were then randomized to receive posttreatment skin regimens with or without GHK-Cu.
Evaluations for erythema throughout the posttreatment period were performed using computer software and blinded evaluators. In addition, overall improvement in wrinkles and overall improvement in skin appearance 12 weeks after treatment were assessed. Patients completed a validated questionnaire before and 12 weeks after treatment.
STUDY SIGNIFICANCE The patient evaluations were important to because the other measures were based on isolated assessments, which may not consider all variables essential to an excellent outcome.
RESULTS & CONCLUSIONS Copper tripeptide complex (GHK-Cu) skin care products placed on CO2 laser–resurfaced skin produced patient satisfaction that was significantly higher than it was for those who were not treated with GHK-Cu skin care products after CO2 laser skin resurfacing.
The data suggest that copper tripeptide complexes may provide a superior overall result and improvement in preoperative vs postoperative wrinkle scores in Fitzpatrick wrinkle classes II and III.
