|Tri-Aktiline Instant Deep Wrinkle||
Claiming to be a groundbreaking mixture that chemically erases lines from the face, Tri-Aktiline’s Instant Deep Wrinkle Filler has received national attention from anti-wrinkle experts because it claims to be Botox in a bottle. This formula is actually quite different from other anti-wrinkle creams, featuring chemically-formulated ingredients instead of natural ingredients, which really goes against the grain of the organic movement in skin care. Instead of Vitamin E and Aloe Vera, key ingredients such as Kombuchka PH Extract and Argireline replace natural ingredients. All key ingredients claim to relax muscle tissue while smoothening wrinkle-prone areas for a mimicked look similar to Botox.
The availability of Tri-Aktiline’s Instant Deep Wrinkle Filler is a plus here — it is conveniently available online and through popular retailers such as Kohl’s. Each store offers it for a moderately affordable price, and is usually priced at $39.50 per 1.0 oz bottle. Although Tri-Aktiline does not offer additional information about how it works, the buzz surrounding its formula might suggest this isn’t simply another anti-wrinkle cream making boisterous claims. Let’s see how these ingredients truly work.
Tri-Aktiline contains a key mixture of three ingredients, Gatuline Expression, Kombuchka PH Extract, and Argireline. Do these ingredients help diminish the appearance of wrinkles? Argireline, the brand name of peptide Acetyl Hexapeptide-3, does contain some cited benefits, which include inhibiting muscle movement in the face, similar to how Botox works. Scientists have discovered Argireline reduced wrinkle formation by up to 27% within a month of use, which is encouraging news for consumers. There is no evidence available about how it affects wrinkles after long term use, however. Furthermore, additional evidence shows that Argireline causes an opposite effect if used in substantial amounts. If used in amounts equaling over 10% of the total formulation, skin sag was reported as a side effect, which is obviously not an effect any consumer desires. Consumers should avoid creams that include Argireline over this amount to prevent this side effect.
- Contains Argireline, a new peptide proven to decrease wrinkle formation when applied.
- Is an affordable alternative to FDA-approved Botox or Botox alternatives.
- Argireline could cause skin sag if used in excess amounts.
- Does not contain any natural ingredients.
- Currently only available online.
The Bottom Line
Tri-Aktiline’s Instant Deep Wrinkle Filler contains a key ingredient with proven benefits, but its main side effect may actually worsen wrinkles and skin elasticity. It does not appear to contain any moisturization-rich ingredients, which could also help improve the skin’s appearance. There are definite benefits here, however, so it might be an ideal choice for consumers who desire a Botox alternative without the expensive price tag.
