Multi Peptide Serum
Wrinkles result from a combination of genetics, habitual facial expressions and environmental exposure. They
may signify wisdom, but they do little for your looks. They sap the radiance from the skin, and can make you
appear much older and unhealthier than you actually are.
Relax! Aesthetic Science’s Multi Peptide, Anti-Wrinkle Wonder Serum is a muscle inhibiting and collagen
building solution that uses innovative Peptide technology to help reduce wrinkles and restore a youthful
appearance in glorious anti-aging fashion.
The Peptides help achieve ultimate wrinkle reduction by inhibiting muscle contraction and signaling the
proliferation of collagen synthesis, which unlike Botox injections or other invasive treatments is a safe,
convenient and natural option.

How it works
Aesthetic Science’s Multi Peptide Serum uses 6 specific peptides to reduce muscle movement, while
stimulating Collagen synthesis. By reducing muscle movement, you alleviate tension and stress on the skin,
and by increasing Collagen synthesis; you strengthen the skin’s elasticity and suppleness. This results in
excellent wrinkle reduction.
Muscles are contracted when they receive a neurotransmitter called Acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is carried and
released from inside a synaptic vesicle, via a process known as neuronal exocytosis. During neuronal
exocytosis, the Acetylcholine carried within the vesicle require a group of proteins to mediate the fusion
between the vesicle and the muscle cells it’s carrying instructions to. These proteins are called the SNARE
complex and act as a sort of pathway over which the vesicle must cross to relay movement and information.
Our Multi Peptide Serum uses two Peptides to disrupt this information pathway, in an effort to relax the
muscles. Hexapeptide-8 and Acetyl Glutamyl Heptapeptide-1 are two peptides that mimic the N-terminal of
SNAP-25 protein. They compete for a position in the SNARE complex, which destabilizes the pathway, so that
it cannot support neurotransmitters efficiently. The vesicles struggle to even reach the neurological receptors.
Any vesicles which do manage to cross the protein pathway and reach the receptors are are hindered by
another peptide called Dipeptide Diaminobutyroyl Benzylamide Diacetate. This peptide is an antagonist of the
muscular receptor and acts by blocking the uptake of the acetylchiline released from vesicles to the mnAChR
To ensure maximum muscle relaxation, we use Pentapeptide-18. This peptide mimics the natural mechanism
of enkephalins. Enkephalins are neurotransmitters which work to suppress pain, and administer a calming
response. Pentapeptide-18 couples to the enkephalin receptors on the outside of of nerve cells initiating a
decrease of the neuron excitability. The nerve cell’s activity is ‘turned down’ and the release of acetylcholine
Finally we help strengthen the skin and increase elasticity, with the last 2 peptides called Palmitoyl
Oligopeptide and Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7. These peptides activate the neosynthesis of the extracellular matrix
macromecules. via matrikines. Matrikines are messengers of cutaneous reconstruction and repair, which carry
instructions that help increase the proliferation of collagen and rejuvenation of the skin.
