Tummy Tuck Long term results coupled with immediate smoothing effects in a silky moisturizing treatment.
Many factors contribute to dissatisfaction with the appearance of the abdominal area. Pregnancy or weight gain may have caused stretch marks. Decreased collagen production may have contributed to cellulite and sagging of the skin. Age, in general, causes skin to be looser.
Stretch marks are a form of scarring in the dermis, the layer of the skin that contains connective tissue. They are often caused by rapid stretching related to weight gain or rapid growth. The stress on the skin challenges its elasticity and disrupts the normal production of collagen. When the dermis stretches, the tissue becomes inflamed. The epidermis, the layer above the dermis, also stretches and becomes somewhat translucent, revealing the red/purple discoloration from the damaged dermis. As the stretched area heals, a scar develops in the form of a stretch mark.
Cellulite occurs in the subcutaneous layer of fat, just below the skin. Within this layer is a network of fibres, called collagen, which hold the subcutaneous layer in place. Cellulite is the result of stretching and thickening of these existing collagen fibres, allowing fat to bulge through. These bulges create the cottage cheese appearance of the affected area. This can occur in people of any weight, which is why it is assumed to be an issue of the skin rather than metabolism or weight.
As skin ages, there is a decrease in collagen and elastin, decreasing elasticity. These changes result in less support for the upper layers of skin, making scars appear more pronounced, cellulite more visible, and sagging more evident.
While many turn to cosmetic surgery for a tummy tuck, surgery is not the best option. Liposuction removes underlying fat, but does nothing to rebuild the supporting fibres and a surgical tuck may cause bruising and discomfort during recovery. Pureclinica has an alternative to these invasive procedures: Tummy Tuck. With neuropeptides, natural extracts, proteins, and caffeine, Tummy Tuck significantly improves the appearance of abdominal skin instantly while treating damaged skin for long-lasting results.

Matrixyl (palmitoyl pentapeptide-3)
This amino peptide mixed with fatty acids stimulates the production of collagen, elastin, and glucosamnoglycans. Matrixyl stimulates healing in the lower layers of the skin, increasing collagen production. This counteracts the thinning and lost elasticity of aging skin.
Darutoside (siegesbeckia orientalis)
Siegesbeckia orientalis is a plant extract that is rich in emollients. By soothing the skin, decreasing inflammation, restoring collagen and promoting collagen production, this extract helps to improve skin elasticity and surface appearance. Used for stretch mark removal, Darutoside has been shown to stimulate tissue regeneration via collagen fibres which improves skin elasticity.
Argireline (acetyl hexapeptide-3)
Argireline is a hexapeptide used to smooth the skin.
DMAE is a naturally occurring substance that has been shown to decrease skin sagging. It facilitates the firming of skin and increased elasticity, revealing toned looking skin.
This natural extract is high in Vitamin A and beta-carotene which protects cells from free radicals. It is also a wonderful exfoliator for refreshing and smoothing skin. Fig extract works with the neuropeptides to break down fatty cells and boost cell metabolism.
Caffeine works on skin in three ways: as a vasoconstrictor, an antioxidant, and a diuretic. It works by dehydrating fat cells, making the skin smoother. Recent studies have indicated that caffeine may protect against sun damage to skin cells.
This hydrolyzed protein creates a flexible network on the surface of the skin which tightens the surface.
Studies show that pomegranate extracts stimulate skin's collagen production, rebuild its outer layers, and inhibit free radicals as it helps offset daily effects of oxidation and the effects of overexposure to the sun.
Apply to cleansed skin twice daily by gently massaging into target areas. Not for use by pregnant women.
Tummy Tuck shares many of the active ingredients found in a cream produced by Rodial, but with a much smaller price tag. The richly emollient cream is filled with active peptides, vitamins, extracts, and caffeine, to restore collagen, smooth and hydrate skin, and improve overall skin condition and tone. Hydrolyzed wheat protein instantly smoothes and tightens for immediate results. Regular use of Tummy Tuck will provide maximum results with significant savings.
Clinical studies performed by Rodial on their similarly formulated product revealed a reduction of up to 2 cm in the abdominal area.
Palmitoyl pentapeptide-3 (Matrixyl) has shown an up to 117% increase in overall collagen production, an up to 327% increase in collagen IV synthesis, and an increase in hyaluronic acid synthesis by up to 267%. This peptide boost helps to smooth and tighten the skin.
Caffeine has been shown to act as a dehydrating agent for fat cells, reducing accumulated mass and smoothing the skins surface.
Results of clinical trials on the effects of darutoside indicate that after 4 weeks of use, study participants saw a 52.15% decrease in the length of streaks, 13.7% increase in surface smoothness, 55.4% reduction in indented surfaces, and 52.2% reduction in the length of irregularities.
