If there is a new anti-aging ingredient that is being searched most frequently on the internet today, it is Matrixyl 3000. Most new generation anti-wrinkle creams and instant face lifts have one thing in common and this is their inclusion of Matrixyl 3000 as one of their active ingredients.
Let me clear it up first that there are two known Matrixyls in the anti-wrinkle industry—one is simply called Matrixyl (palmitoyl pentapeptide-3) while the other is the newer Matrixyl 3000 (palmitoyl tetrapeptide-3). Both versions are peptides formed by the linking of important amino acids and are essential in the formation of collagen and elastin on your skin cells.
Specifically, Matrixyl increases the overall collagen production in your skin at approximately 117% and the overall hyaluronic acid production in your skin by about 267%. These production increases will result to 50% decrease in wrinkles and fine lines appearance in just a few days after the first Matrixyl treatment.
Matrixyl 3000, while offering all the ant-aging benefits of Matrixyl, can reverse and prevent glycation damage. Glycation damage results from the linking of glucose and protein molecules together, causing skin stiffening and huge decreases in collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid production. When this happens, it is more likely for wrinkles and fine lines to appear and for skin to become saggy.
Matrixyl and Matrixyl 3000 are equally important anti-aging ingredients and have different purposes. Some anti-aging products contain only Matrixyl but have other important ingredients that can improve your skin’s condition significantly while some anti-wrinkle products may contain Matrixyl 3000 but do not contain any other important anti-aging ingredients. This is why you should always consider other active ingredients in an anti-aging cream, serum, or product instead of deciding to purchase the one with the Matrixyl 3000.
