Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 is an anti-aging skincare product that claims to reduce lines and wrinkles. It's meant to be another option for those who want younger-looking skin, but do not want to go through Botox injections, face-lifts, or other more invasive procedures. In addition, Acetyl hexapeptide-3 is much less expensive than those more widely used techniques.
Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 is a unique new peptide that both reduces the degree of existing facial wrinkles and has been demonstrated effective against their development. It's been shown to inhibit the formation of the SNARE complex ( a core of membrane proteins that mediates neuronal exocytosis) as well as catecholamine release. These inhibitions confer anti-aging activity of Acetyl Hexapeptide-8; they closely relate to the basic biochemical mechanisms of winkle formation.Controlled studies have also demonstrated that facial winkle depth can be reduced, especially in the forehead and around he eyes, and that Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 can prevent apparent facial skin ageing.
