The increased presence of wrinkles is one of the
most characteristic signs of skin aging and can be caused by many factors: – advancing age – constant repetitive movement from the contraction of facial expression muscles and constant pressure on facial skin (such as during sleep).
The molecular mechanism in face aging is directly connected to structural changes in collagen’s triple helix, the degradation of elastin polypeptides, and the compacting of the skin’s lipid matrix. Studies have shown that regular application of products containing the anti-wrinkle agent hexapeptide considerably
reduces the contraction of muscles, preventing the formation of wrinkles. It has also been clearly shown that overlapping catecholamines (which also affects wrinkle formation and expression lines) can be avoided with synthetic short-chain peptides. In conclusion, we have found that after a 30-day period of twice-daily applications, the product resulted in the following obvious changes: – reduction of facial wrinkles caused by the contraction of expression muscles, especially on the forehead and around the eyes. – reduction of skin aging induced by repeated facial movements caused by excessive catecholamines. This progressive and reversible action provides the benefits of botox-like action in complete safety without the risk of injections.
