FIXER ™ is a brand new product initially created as an alternative to botulinum toxin, but it actually represents the first true non-toxic muscle relaxant revitalizer able to reduce, without paralyzing, the depth of wrinkles.
- Acetyl Hexapeptide 8: is a polypeptide widely used in aesthetic medicine for its muscle relaxant characteristics. It inhibits the fusion of neurotransmitter vesicles at a pre-synaptic level causing a partial and reversible blockage of the electrical impulse.
- Acetyl Hexapeptide 30: is the isoform peptide similar to hexapeptide 8, but stronger and more efficient. Even in this case, the polypeptide sequesters calcium at the presynaptic level inhibiting the fusion of neurotransmitter vesicles.
- DMAE: has a direct tensor action on collagen fibers thanks to the partial denaturation ability of the tertiary structure of fibers, as well as a stimulating action towards dermal fibrocytes with a revitalizing effect.
- Hibiscus Esculentus extract: (INCI list: Hydrolized Hibiscus Esculentus Extract) derives from a South American plant known since ancient times for its regenerating, smoothing, and antispasmodic actions. American researchers have discovered that, when applied on the skin, it develops an effective anti-aging action. They also demonstrated in an in vitro test that, thanks to its high concentration of natural "biomimetic" oligopeptides, it inhibits muscle contraction with a cosmetic effect, which is reflected on the skin as: "reduction of expression lines." * This innovative test was performed on cell cultures that mimic facial muscle hypermobility and it was found that Hibiscus Esculentus expresses a muscle-relaxing mechanism that inhibits the frequency of contractions, mimicking the action of botulinum toxin and with an effect that lasts for hours. Hibiscus oligopeptides are small protein fractions that consist of 3-4-6 amino acids in a well predetermined sequence that reproduce important protein synthesis’s similar to those of dermis supporting structures (collagen and elastin), reinforcing them and countering the degradation due to age and environmental aggressors. Researchers have also shown that Hibiscus has a strong antioxidant activity, inhibiting the formation of free radicals and therefore increasing the skin's defenses against exogenous and endogenous aggressions.
