Alright, so today we’re talking about expression lines, which is really just a cute name for wrinkles. Along with the ingredient that can help get rid of them - a natural botox alternative.
When it comes to anti-aging skincare a common point of emphasis is often expression lines. What are they? Why do they become more visible with age? How can I get rid of them?What Are Expression Lines?
First of all, expression lines are what we call dynamic wrinkles, these are deep creases that form around the mouth, eyes and on the forehead. They form here because this is where the muscle and skin are attached. So, when we make an expression our facial muscles contract, which then drags the skin too (hence the name dynamic wrinkles). Over decades of smiles and frowns we cause greater impressions in the skin, making them deeper and more visible. Also, along with years of wear and tear, as we age our bodies begin to produce less collagen. Collagen production is responsible for the moisture and elasticity of the skin, therefore with less collagen these creases become even more deeply embedded and visible.
Think back to when you were a kid and you would scrunch up your face to make a friend laugh. The expression causes wrinkles to form, but then, as soon as your face goes back to neutral the wrinkles disappear. This is because in our younger years our skin has an amazing "bounce back" ability! As we age that ability weakens, causing the wrinkles to become more visible, even when we’re not making facial expressions.What Can We Do About Them?
Now to the question of how to get rid of them, many people opt for botox injections. Botox (botulinum toxin) works by blocking the signals between nerves and certain facial muscles. The injected toxin stops these muscles from contracting which then has the result of helping your wrinkles smoothen. It does work, but there are definitely significant downsides when it comes to botox.
First of all, it’s going to cost you a pretty-pretty penny. A single session can range anywhere from $500 to $1500! Also, it’s only a temporary solution, which means you’re stuck going back for more once every few months. Another issue, as we know, is that there can sometimes be complications when it comes to botox injections. The wrong facial muscles can be injected, they can become too frozen, causing other muscles to over compensate. When it comes to botox injections, it’s so important that you’re dealing with a qualified and well-trained professional because we’ve all seen the results when it does go wrong – yikes.
Luckily, there's another approach to smoothening your expression lines and tightening your skin for that fresh, youthful look: Acetyl Hexapeptide-8! Our natural Botox alternative!
Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 is a mouthful, none of you are going to remember it and I might end up with carpal tunnel if I keep having to type it. So, for the purposes of this blog we’re going to call it “Ace 6-8”.Ace 6-8: An Amazing Botox Alternative
You can think of “Ace 6-8” as your buddy, it's a powerful little peptide and products that use it can work wonders when it comes to fighting expression wrinkles! You can think of this peptide as a more natural, non-invasive expression relaxer than botox. It rests those dynamic areas of the skin, which promotes collagen production and optimizes the function of the collagen. This will allow your skin to better combat those expression lines and improve its moisture levels.Isomers "Ace 6-8" Solutions
We at Isomers Labs have two products that each have a heavy concentration of Ace 6-8, our Expression Line Solution and our Wrinkle Relaxer.

We find the idea of anti-aging skincare to be a little bit conflicting. Because on one hand, of course we all want to use products that keep our skin firm, smooth and fresh like it was in our youth. Being able to create formulas that can help people turn-back-the-clock on their skin in a natural way is a focal point of ours at Isomers Labs. What we don't believe in are anti-aging solutions that come at the cost of our distinct facial features or the ability to perform normal facial expressions.Express Yourself!
