A wrinkle treatment like no other.

Everyone is looking for a magic elixir, or wrinkle treatment, to repair facial folds, creases, ridges, and grooves. Often referred to as crow’s feet, laughter lines, and frown lines, they all come under the broader banner of mimic wrinkles or expression lines.

We can’t prevent expression lines. These facial creases define our features and are reinforced every time we show any kind of emotion, be it laugh, cry, frown, or act surprised.

As we age and these lines become longer and deeper, many of us look for that magic elixir, ie wrinkle treatment, that will reduce their length and depth. Until recently, treating expression lines has been a tough gig.

Lines and wrinkles

There are many causes for lines and wrinkles.

Some are caused by lifestyle factors, such as smoking, drug taking, and excessive drinking. Some are related to environmental factors, eg. smog and atmospheric pollution. While others are caused by dehydration, and of course aging. The deepest wrinkles of all however are expression lines.

Expression lines are the result of repeated facial movements. Every time we laugh, for example, the muscles just below the surface of the skin contract.

As we age and our skin starts to lose its elasticity, expression lines start making deeper depressions on our faces. What were once defining facial features, start to age us. Deep furrows or frown lines appear on our foreheads, crinkles around the eyes become crow’s feet, and laughter lines become deep grooves.

Wrinkle depth in micrometres (µm)

  • Secondary lines: 5–40µm deep
  • Primary lines: 20–100µm deep)
  • Expression lines: more than 100µm deep.

Wrinkle treatment for expression lines

Invasive treatments such as Botox injections and collagen fillers are used to temporarily reverse the appearance of aging. However, these treatments are expensive, unpleasant and, anyone who has ever flipped through a woman’s glossy can attest, some results are far from ideal.

But there is an innovative, non-evasive wrinkle treatment that can help your complexion return to a younger, more natural and relaxed state.

SYN®-AKE is a cutting edge wrinkle treatment based on a synthetic tripeptide that mimics the effect of Waglerin-1, a peptide found in Temple Viper venom.

The active relaxes muscle movement by temporarily immobilising facial contractions that causes facial lines. The result is a reduction in the appearance of wrinkle size by 52% after 28 days, providing smoother and more youthful-looking skin.
