As the skin ages, it loses the ability either to produce or utilization some its natural peptides. Enzymes that are designed to break down skin structures, to make way for new structures, continue to work against collagen and elastin. However, the skin cannot replace these supportive structures with new ones; the face begins to droop and sag from its original position. Also as part of the aging process, the skin becomes less able to hold on to its natural moisture. To compound this, it also produces less moisture. When cells are not adequately hydrated, they are sunken, which further worsens the look of already sagging skin.
Have you heard of SNAP-8?
SNAP-8 is an octapeptide, or the combination of 8 amino acids which are linked together to create one particular peptide. SNAP-8, created by Kinerase, is being marketed as the second generation of Argireline, and is said to be 30% more effective. According to studies (albeit published by Kinerase and not seemingly backed by any independent researchers), it can reduce the depth and appearance of wrinkles by 34.9% (Source).
What is SNAP-8?
SNAP-8 is a muscle contraction inhibitor that reduces the depth of wrinkles on the face caused by the contraction of muscles of facial expression, especially in the forehead and around the eyes.
It is thought to be a safer, more economical and milder alternative to Botox, in part because it is more powerful at lower concentrations.
Snap-8 has some benefits that help to reverse these signs of aging, by working under the skin to relax muscles and to provide the nutrients that skin needs to function properly. Under the skin of the face, we have some vital muscles, which make it possible for us to create expressions. As we repeatedly smile, blink, speak, and squint, our muscles begin to become more and more contracted under the skin. This prominently expresses itself around the mouth and eyes and on the forehead, as we mature.
These muscles become permanently contracted, causing wrinkles on the surface of the skin. Fine lines and wrinkles are so common and so widespread that we even have nicknames for them. Around the eyes, we have crow’s feet, around the mouth, parentheses, and worry lines on the forehead.
In clinical studies, Snap 8 was compared to Argireline. Both were used twice a day, but Snap-8 proved itself to be at least 30% more effective than Argireline.
– Reduces the depth of wrinkles on the face caused by the contraction of muscles of facial expression, especially in the forehead and around the eyes.
– A safer, cheaper, and milder alternative to Botulinum Toxin, topically targeting the same wrinkle-formation mechanism in a very different way.
