frequently asked questions
Do I replace my anti-wrinkle serum and moisturizer with RELASTYL?
RELASTYL is an all-in-one product, combining moisturizing and anti-aging benefits. The active ingredient is a lipopeptide that stimulates the matrix molecules in the skin, particularly collagen and fibronectin, enabling it to significantly reduce the appearance of wrinkles. In a six-month, double-blind study utilizing eye zone skin tissue marred by distinct “crow’s feet,” the active “MATRIXIL” ingredient in RELASTYL™ achieved outstanding results when compared with a brand name product containing vitamin C, and a placebo. The researchers reported a decrease in surface wrinkles by an average of 68% -- and up to 90% in some subjects. Deep furrows were reduced by 47%, and moderate wrinkles were diminished by 51%.
For facial applications, the combination of Serum C used as a base (topical vitamin C plus botanicals) with RELASTYL is a synergistic enhancement for facial care and highly recommended.*
My friend is pregnant for the second time and swears that RELASTYL prevents stretch marks. Can I use it for stretch marks?
RELASTYL can be used anywhere your skin needs help with damage prevention or rejuvenation. It continuously renews and repairs your skin 24/7 by restoring vital moisture loss and preventing destruction of vital collagen. Use it on hips, butt, stomach and thighs.
Does RELASTYL work the same way as Botox?
The peptides in RELASTYL act to relax muscle tissue and moisturize the skin, stimulating and maintaining the skin’s natural production of collagen. Botox (Botulinum) is an injectible toxin that causes facial muscles not to contract, thereby reducing wrinkles, but also reducing the ability of facial muscles to respond.
