CSN Anti-Wrinkle Cream has been formulated based on research conducted 20 years ago, which showed improvement in the appearance of frown lines and the reduction of rhytids (fine lines and wrinkles). The research proved the efficacy of a homeopathic preparation of Botulinum toxin in the reduction of frown line length as well as the reduced appearance of rhytids. CSN Anti-Wrinkle Cream contains 2 strengths of homeopathic Botulinum toxin (24D and 200CH), together with Provitamin B5, Collagen and peptides.
Facial lines and wrinkles (rhytids) form because of the following factors:
- Ageing processes
- Sun damage
- Muscle movement
- Skin tension
- Other skin diseases with a tendency to scar (e.g. discoid lupus erythematosus)
Fine lines and wrinkles arise because of irregular thickening of the dermis and because of a decrease in the amount of water held by the epidermis. This is mainly caused by sun damage and exposure to environmental toxins particularly tobacco smoke.
Deeper lines or furrows are classified as dynamic or static. Dynamic lines appear with movement i.e. the activity of facial muscles. Static lines are unchanged with muscle movement. Eventually, dynamic lines become static.
Crow’s feet around the eyes are due to smiling and activity of the eyelid muscles (orbicularis oculi). Worry lines on the forehead are due to contraction of the frontalis muscle when raising the eyebrows. Frown lines between the eyebrows are due to contraction of corrugator supercilii muscles and procerus muscle when concentrating or angry.
