TightenylTM: A cosmetic alternative to facelift surgery
The architecture of skin relies on the fibers of the extracellular matrix (ECM) structure, which physically supports the epidermis, and gives skin its unique biomechanical properties. In baby skin, these structural fibers are abundant and organized thanks to 3 proteoglycans: perlecan, decorin and versican. Upon aging, the abundance of these proteoglycans decreases, due to a lower production of their sulfated sugar chains: chondroitin sulfate and heparan sulfate.
Tightenyl™ is the result of a scientific research to specifically reactivate the synthesis of S- glycosa-minoglycans (S-GAG) in skin. Exhaustive scientific experiments including electron transmission and biphotonic microscopy have shown that Tightenyl™ gives better results than retinol to tighten and re-organize the fibers of the ECM, without any irritation.
A clinical test (double blind versus placebo) made on aged volunteers has shown the fast bio ... ...
