I’m very excited about my new and improved formula with the latest addition of Matrixyl ®synthe’6™! Matrixyl ®synthe’6™ is the new addition to the Matrixyl family of ingredients. This powerhouse Peptide dramatically smoothes and refines skin.
Matrixyl ®synthe’6™ is a deoxygenated lipopeptide that stimulates the synthesis of 6 major ingredients in the skin’s matrix and dermal-epidermal junction (collagen I,III, IV, fibronectin, hyaluronic acid). The result is that skin is rebuilt from the inside causing wrinkles to be smoothed out. It fills in wrinkles from the inside particularly on the forehead and the crow’s feet for a visibly smoother and plumper skin and even more particularly the lifting effect and the wrinkle spread.
The 6 Major Constituents that Matrixyl ®Synthe'6™ Stimulates
- Collagen I improved by 111% - Collagen 1 is the most abundant collagen in our dermis.
- Collagen III improved by 104% - Collagen III is referred to as “youth collagen” because it is produced by our young fibroblast.
- Collagen IV improved 42% - Collagen IV anchors the proteins in the deepest layers of the skin.
- Heat Shock Proteins improved by 123% - Heat Shock Proteins expression is increased when cells are exposed to elevated temperatures or other environmental stressors.
- Laminins improved 75% - Laminins are involved in the healing of damaged skin.
- Hyaluronic production improved 174% - Hyaluronic acid is a component responsible for water retention.
The starting point for how acetyl tetrapeptide-9 works is the role played by things called proteoglycans, which slow with age. These are protein-sugar (glycosaminoglycan chains) complexes that are involved with collagen fibers. Acetyl tetrapeptide-9 targets one in particular, called lumican that is involved in both the synthesis of collagen fibrils and their organization into functional fibers, ensuring the integrity of the extra-cellular matrix.
Acetyl tetrapeptide-9 boots collagen synthesis to natural levels. It has been proven both in clinical studies, as well as human trials, to help increase the amount of collagen that is naturally produced by your body, resulting in firmer and plumper skin. In clinical studies, the best results from using acetyl tetrapeptide-9 were realized after about 4 months of treatment, and participants noted a dramatic increase in the firmness of their skin, as well as its elasticity.
- Firms the skin
- Plumps the skin
- Stimulates new collagen fiber synthesis
MATRIXYL AND MATRIXYL 3000
As we age, our collagen levels dwindle. Skin becomes drier and increasingly crinklier. Matrixyl stimulates fibroblasts in aged skin to produce more collagen. It increases the collagen production level back to that comparable to young cells.
Matrixyl is associated with increases in elastin fiber density and thickness and improved regularity of collagen IV; both critical for smooth, supple skin. A clinical study showed a 68% reduction of deep surface wrinkles in 60 days. Matrixyl significantly decreased facial lines and wrinkles while the peptide formulation showed improvements in the appearance of age spots, dark circles under the eyes, eye crepiness and skin firmness. Matrixyl also has clinical studies reporting a 117% increase in collagen I synthesis, and a 357% increase in collagen IV synthesis.
When looking for a Matrixyl product, be sure to look at the ingredient list to make sure it contains Matrixyl, Matrixyl 3000 & Matrixyl Synthe'6 so you reap the benefits of all three. The addition of Acetyl Tetrapeptide-9 puts it over the top!
I dare you to compare!
