This tetrapeptide fights sagginess by enhancing key elements to the assembly of elastin and several collagens and overexpressing genes involved in cellular adhesion.
Mechanism of action
It induces the expression of proteins Fibulin 5 and Lysyl Oxidase-Like 1, contributing to the organisation of elastic fibre and upregulates key genes to cellular cohesion through focal adhesions (talin, zyxin, integrins). Moreover, it induces the synthesis of elastin and collagen I.
The dermis is significantly more structured and firmer, so it better resist the effects of aging, thus improving the quality of mature skin.
