Nanotechnology in Cosmetic Applications-Part 2

SpecialChem / Nancy Jeffries – Oct 19, 2006

According to prevailing trends in anti-aging treatments, consumers are more apt to try topical alternatives first, rather than invasive procedures. This accounts for a growing interest in and increased understanding of the wrinkle formation process and appropriate treatment. Increasingly, technologies address wrinkles and their formation due to facial expressions, repetitive motions, environmental damage and natural aging. According to Salvona, who offers HydroSal™ Lift, as a gentle alternative to Botox®, expressive and repetitive motion wrinkles form because of lingering skin tension produced when excessive chemical signals stimulate facial muscles. These types of wrinkles can form each time you smile, frown, laugh or cry. Over time this results in brow lines, forehead creases, crow's feet, laugh lines, and overall aging in the appearance of the skin. Nerve toxins, like Botox,® for example, prevent the nerve from signaling the muscle to contract by severely impairing one or more of these essential mechanisms.
