We all know that there are a category of wrinkles called expression wrinkles, that are caused by repeated facial movements. Whether our expression lines are from laughing, smiling, crying, or frowning, the repeated facial movements leave us with wrinkles. Imagine if you were to fold a piece of paper in half over and over and over. Eventually the fold in the piece of paper will be permanent. This is the same manner in which expression wrinkles are formed.
The Inyline Solution for Wrinkles
Lipotec, created Inyline, a solution to treat those pesky expression lines and wrinkles. Inyline works by restricting muscle contraction. There are two main methods to minimize muscle contraction. They are described as follows
Pre-synaptic strategy involves different mechanisms that restrain or inhibit the release of the neurotransmitter (acetylcholine) from the motor neuron. The most known example of this is Botulinum Toxin, which inhibits ACh release into the synapse from the vesicles in such a dramatic way that it paralyses the muscle. Examples of well-known peptide products that utilize this method of action include Argireline, SNAP-8 and SNAP-7 by Lipotec. These are safer, cheaper and milder alternatives to Botulinum Toxin.
Post-synaptic avoids or diminishes the ligand (ACh) – receptor (AChR) binding responsible for the formation of the action potential. In this strategy, although the neurotransmitter is released into the synapse, the post-synaptic apparatus does not respond to it.
InylineTM Solution targets this second strategy by blocking the agrin binding site in MuSK and its mechanism of action causing modulation of muscle contraction leading to muscle relaxation. From a cosmetic point of view, in the treatment of expression wrinkles, its pathway is critical in the contraction process and therefore its blockage results in muscle relaxation, with the skin surface appearing smoother and line depth decreasing.
Inyline can be found in a multitude of anti-aging creams and serums, but we recommend Elite Serum Rx. Elite Serum Rx contains not only Inyline, but also Syn-Tc and Argireline. This powerhouse of ingredients is why SkinPro is one of the most talked about skin care companies in the industry.
