SYN-AKE ® is a synthetic peptide that provides a safe and effective alternative to “Botox” in the treatment of facial expression lines.
The inspiration for SYN®-AKE came from an active component in the venom of the temple viper, in its ability to inhibit muscle contractions. DSM created a synthetic peptide that mimics this property of the venom, and which is able to quickly and safely reduce the facial muscle contraction in a completely reversible manner, without the need for costly injections or clinical procedures.
In-vivo studies on crow’s feet lines and forehead wrinkles demonstrate excellent skin smoothing and anti-wrinkle effects when compared to placebo and competitor peptides. The effect is temporary and the line relaxing properties will wear off after 12 hours – a kind of Cinderella effect.
