The muscle movement required to laugh, smile or scowl slowly breaks down skin’s elasticity, resulting in visible creases. While expression lines are a natural part of the aging process, they don’t have to be a part of yours, or your clients!
Professional treatments and cosmetic injections are not the only solutions for smoothing away facial expression lines. Enter ExLinea® Pro Peptide Serum, new from PCA SKIN®, your clients’ non-invasive, at-home complement to in-office treatments. This advanced neuropeptide spot treatment helps deliver both an immediate and long-term reduction of visible expression lines caused by repeated muscle movements.
Featuring the proprietary technology Peptide-Pro Complex, this groundbreaking ingredient blend contains proven efficacious levels of neuropeptides, proteins, amino acids and marine extracts that work synergistically to help visibly improve the appearance of expression lines, skin roughness and laxity while increasing skin hydration. This targeted corrective can also be used full-face to help lift, tighten and firm the skin.
A deeper look into the advanced ExLinea® Pro Peptide Serum formula sheds some light on the product’s mechanism of action and enhanced efficacy:
Snap-8™ peptide (Acetyl Octapeptide-3) - A neuropeptide that helps reduce the depth of fine lines and wrinkles caused by facial muscle contractions.
Polysaccharide-Amino Acid Blend - An effective monolayer composed of proteins, algae and amino acids that boosts skin’s moisture retention and the penetration of other functional ingredients. It enhances elasticity and helps smooth, hydrate and lift skin.
Argireline® Amplified peptide (Acetyl Hexapeptide-8) - A multi-functional, next-generation peptide that helps minimize the appearance of expression lines and visible signs of aging.
Bacillus/Soybean Ferment Extract - A marine extract that provides a contouring and firming effect on loose skin, improving the overall appearance of sagging skin.
A clinical study which enrolled 31 female participants between the ages of 35 and 55 years old with Fitzpatrick types ranging from I to III evaluated the product’s effects on the skin when applied twice daily over 12 weeks. The study results were impressive with 100% of patients showing a visible reduction in fine lines and wrinkles after 12 weeks.
In addition, 100% of patients also showed a visible lifting and tightening effect and improvement in skin smoothness after just four weeks. The cumulative 12-week results can be seen in before and after photos from the clinical study on expression lines, such as crow’s feet and forehead lines.
Importantly, patient satisfaction in the clinical study was also strong:
- 97% felt their skin was smoother after four weeks
- 94% felt their skin was firmer after four weeks
- 94% felt their skin looked younger after 12 weeks
