What is TriHex technology?

Have you heard of TriHex technology? It’s used in skin care products to rejuvenate your skin. Keep reading to learn more.

Changes in your skin over time

There are many changes in your skin that happen over time. Some of the most dramatic ones include loose skin, fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, and dullness. These all happen because of changes in the structure of your skin. Your skin has certain proteins called collagen and elastin which help maintain its structure. Collagen and elastin keep your skin firm and tight. Over time the amount of collagen and elastin your body makes slows down. At the same time, the sun damages collagen and elastin. When your skin loses collagen and elastin, its structure gets weaker and the visible signs are loose, saggy skin, fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, and dullness.

TriHex technology

TriHex technology is a blend of peptides and other ingredients unique to Alastin Skin care products. It’s called TriHex technology because it uses two peptides: one is called a tripeptide (three peptides) and the other is called a hexapeptide (six peptides). Together, these perform specific functions in your skin. First the TriHex technology stimulates your body to get rid of the damaged collagen and elastin in your skin. At the same time, the TriHex technology stimulates your body to make your own natural, new, fresh, and healthy collagen and elastin. This will jump start your skin’s rejuvenation process.

Alastin products with TriHex technology

The Alastin skin care line is best known for its TriHex technology. The first and most popular product is the Alastin Skin Nectar. The Alastin Skin Nectar contains the TriHex technology and is used in combination with treatments that stimulate collagen such as laser skin tightening, Ultra Microneedling, and Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing. You can start using the Alastin Skin Nectar twice daily starting two weeks before your treatment and continue it for two to four weeks after your treatment. When you do this, not only will you get better results, but you’ll have a faster recovery time. When you’re done with your series of treatments, you can switch to the Alastin Restorative Complex. The Alastin Restorative Complex includes other ingredients such as other peptides and antioxidants that provide benefits to your skin. You’ll see an improvement in fine lines and wrinkles and an improvement in your skin tone. The Alastin Transform Body Treatment is a product designed for your body. It contains TriHex technology and other ingredients to help with things like stretch marks. It also helps your body get rid of fat when combined with Kybella to remove stubborn fat under your chin and in other areas. The Alastin Inhance Post Injection serum is another product that contains TriHex technology. It also contains arnica, which helps with bruising after injections like Botox, Voluma, Vollure, and Volbella.

 All of the Alastin skin care products are available on our online store.
