SNAP 8, Improved Argireline to Relax Facial Muscles
Snap 8 vs. Argireline
Aging refers to many physical, emotional, and mental processes that occur, not just wrinkles on our face. Most of us think about it regarding the physical effects, especially on our faces.
Unfortunately, Wrinkles are the most common, least attractive, and hardest to disguise aspect of the physical forms of aging, which is why anti-aging skincare is a billion-dollar industry!
There are hundreds of products, all kinds of ingredients, and sometimes trying to figure out which one(s) are right for you can be mind-boggling. SNAP-8 or Acetyl Octapeptide-3, more commonly referred to simply as Snap 8, is the topic of interest.
At the most basic level, it is an un-wrinkle octapeptide. It is a wrinkle-relaxing peptide that genuinely works. From the perspective of its chemical composition, it is a newer version of a hexapeptide Argireline (we have commonly known as Argireline).
Snap 8 reduces the severity of wrinkles on your face caused by the repeat contraction of muscles. The crow's feet and tiny little lines on the forehead are usually caused by squinting or other facial expressions.
If you want to stay away from wrinkle injections, Snap is less expensive. Plus, it's a safe alternative to Botulinum Toxin (also known as Botox), which targets the same wrinkle-formation but with a topical serum.
If any of this is confusing, think of it this way. Any time you make a facial expression, a signal sent from your brain tells the muscle that's involved in contracting.
It's these movements that can leave deep lines in your face, wrinkles, or even bags under the eye. If those muscles aren't told to move, the signs of use can't appear. It's similar to a car kept in the garage; if it's never taken out on the road, there's much less chance of wear and tear.
Similarly, Snap-8 works to keep your muscles from moving, therefore softening the appearance of wrinkles you already have and preventing new ones from appearing! After the age of 30, your first lines will most likely begin to appear due to many years of muscle contractions.
Continuous research on the treatment of these wrinkles led to the discovery of Argireline and Snap-8 and products containing them.
However, a clinical study done in 2001 showed that Snap-8 slightly outperformed Argireline, but both products work the same way by restricting the muscle movement in the face.
Consequently, many products contain both of these ingredients, giving you even more effectiveness. A prime example is Skin Perfection's Expression Line Deep Wrinkle Serum.
If you want to see these incredible ingredients in action, give it a try. For just $35, you can achieve more youthful-looking skin and take years off your face. We think you're going to love it as much as we do!
