Anti-fine-lines

[Rua] + [Rub] + [Ruc]

  • Presentation

    Reduces micro-contractions of facial muscles to instantly smooth expression lines and prevent first signs of aging.

  • Mechanisms of action

    --> Mechanical action : inhibits contraction of superficial facial muscles to preventively reduce and correct expression lines for an immediate lifting effect. 

    --> Bio-stimulating action : protects skin and boosts collagen and glycosaminoglycan synthesis, plumping skin from the inside. 
    --> Sensory action : stimulates pro-endorphin synthesis to alleviate the perception of unpleasant sensations and reduce muscular contractions. 
    --> Protective action : antioxidant action helps prevent skin ageing.
  • Clinical results

    [Rua] : Biomimetic tripeptide of a molecule contained in viper venom that prevents muscular contraction.

    • -36% contractions after 1 minute.
    • -82% contractions after 2 hours.
    • -67% contractions after 2 days.

    In vivo:

    • -52% average wrinkle size.
    • -20% fine lines for 73% of test subjects.
    • +21% smoothing effect for 80% of test subjects.

    Our faces allow us to express our emotions every day, particularly through involuntary micro-contractions of the facial muscles. Young skin is sufficiently supple to immediately firm up again, leaving no trace of our expressions on our faces. However, with age, skin loses its elasticity and it isn’t long before the first small wrinkles appear (starting at the age of 25-30 years). These fine lines eventually turn into expression lines, and then deep wrinkles, as a result of the repeated movements of our faces over time. As a result, it is essential to start preventing and fighting the appearance of these first small wrinkles as early as possible (starting at the age of 25 years), even if they aren’t visible yet, to limit their development over the years.

    More specifically, to reduce and prevent the appearance of small wrinkles and expression lines, on the one hand it’s important to limit involuntary micro-contractions of the facial muscles as much as possible. On the other, the skin’s building blocks must be protected and their synthesis stimulated to maintain skin density and elasticity as long as possible.
