  • The Volu-Firm™ Complex contains Tripeptide 1, a biomimetic peptide that helps support processes critical for skin repair.* This specialized peptide “mimics” skin factors which can influence skin behaviors. It is structurally similar to skin-signaling proteins that tell healthy cells to do what they already know how to do – like make more proteins or communicate with one another.
  • Strong cell communication is fundamental to skin health, since when cells stop “talking” to one another, normal skin function can become impaired.
  • This peptide also promotes the synthesis of two proteins in skin,* that are critical to its strength and support – fibronectin and laminin. Unlike collagen and elastin, proteins that can appear throughout the dermis, fibronectin and laminin are localized primarily in the area of the skin known as the dermal-epidermal junction (DEJ) which is where the epidermis connects to the dermis.
  • While collagen and elastin perform a structural role in the skin, fibronectin and laminin primarily influence the communication of cells in the DEJ as well as cellular adhesion – the process through which cells physically bind together and to the DEJ. These two processes are essential if skin is to function properly.
  • In younger skin, the fingerlike projections of the DEJ – imagine a wavy line – allow nutrients to flow from one layer to another. As skin ages, these "waves" begin to flatten. This makes the skin more fragile, decreasing the amount of nutrients available to the epidermis and interfering with the skin's normal repair process. This flattening of the DEJ can cause skin to wrinkle and sag, so anything that can be done to support this area is a good thing for aging skin.
  • Here’s an easy way to visualize what’s going on. Think of the dermis as a tripod, and each of the legs represents one of the three elements essential to healthy, young-looking skin – collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. Now imagine that the legs are attached to one another by hinges across the bottom. Just as those hinges connect the legs, fibronectin and laminin work to bind and connect other proteins and strengthen the skin’s network of support.

  • The Volu-Firm™ Complex contains a tripeptide that is shown to boost the production of hyaluronic acid,* helping to provide youthful volume and lift. While the best known components of the skin matrix are the structural proteins collagen and elastin, hyaluronic acid (HA) performs an equally vital role, providing essential cushioning and holding onto moisture that can actually plump skin from within. In fact, hyaluronic acid can bind up to 1,000 times its weight in water, which makes it an invaluable skin resource.
  • Think of the dermal matrix as skin’s foundation – just like steel beams provide the framework of a building – while hyaluronic acid provides the “padding,” filling in the empty spaces. Hyaluronic acid is to skin what water is to a sponge – without it, skin can become extremely dehydrated, leading to wrinkled, sagging, less-elastic skin.
  • Hyaluronic acid – a glycosaminoglycan – occurs naturally in the body, and over 50 percent of the total amount is found in the skin. But like so many other things, the amount of HA in skin decreases with age, accelerating more rapidly in the late 40s – early 50s. The most dramatic loss of hyaluronic acid associated with aging skin is in the epidermis. This natural process robs skin of its youthful suppleness and allows deeper wrinkles and other advanced signs of skin aging to appear.
  • The effects of HA loss can be compounded further by environmental factors, nutrition and lifestyle habits. When hyaluronic acid is diminished, skin cannot retain the water it needs at the cellular level to keep the underlying structure of the skin hydrated and healthy. Optimal levels of hyaluronic acid help provide the nutrient-transporting framework your skin needs to survive. Many skin experts agree that as far as skin rejuvenation is concerned, hyaluronic acid plays a starring role.

Hyaluronic acid, which is plentiful in young skin, has the ability to attract water molecules and to help create a “plumping” effect from the inside out. “Volume loss is a significant sign of advanced skin aging, so replenishing the hyaluronic acid that decreases with age was a critical benefit that the Volu-Firm™ Complex needed to offer,” says Dr. Lange. “Volu-Firm™ works in two ways – by helping to promote the production of hyaluronic acid** so skin can attract and collect moisture and also by helping to hold moisture in. This can help boost skin volume and create a plumping effect.”

  • The Volu-Firm™ Complex contains plant stem cells that help protect the integrity of the skin matrix, the source of skin firmness.* Skin is constantly renewing itself as older skin cells die and are replaced. But as time passes, the old cells begin to outnumber and overwhelm the new, and this declining ability of skin to repair itself plays a big role in the advanced signs of aging ultimately becoming visible. The Volu-Firm™ Complex harnesses the power of plant stem cells to help maintain skin integrity.*
  • The plant stem cells in this premium collection come from gotu kola, a botanical known for its antioxidant properties. This ingredient is prized because it can reduce the activity of hyaluronidase*, a skin matrix-degrading enzyme that can lead to a loss of skin firmness. Minimizing the activity of hyaluronidase is critical since it breaks down hyaluronic acid, a key component that acts as a “space filler” within the dermal matrix and is responsible for hydration and providing a volumizing effect in addition to impacting skin elasticity.
  • This highly prized benefit to skin can’t be overemphasized – since promoting the production of hyaluronic acid in skin without keeping current levels from degrading would be like filling a bathtub without putting a plug in the drain. The good news is that the Volu-Firm™ Complex was designed to support both.

Loss of skin volume and firmness, and deep wrinkles and sagging are some of the most visible signs of advanced skin aging. “In creating TimeWise Repair™, we wanted to ensure that each step in the regimen delivered benefits to address these key skin issues in addition to individual targeted benefits,” says Dr. Lange. “And that’s why we developed the Volu-Firm™ Complex, a unique, patent-pending blend of ingredients – including plant stem cells and peptides – that helps provide the catalyst behind the clinically proven benefits TimeWise Repair™ delivers.”

After using the TimeWise Repair™ regimen,* there was a noticeable decrease in the look of deep wrinkles (shown in red) and fine lines (shown in blue) across the forehead. In fact, based on a 12-week clinical study,** these significant changes were seen:

  • 86% of women had a decrease in the appearance of average wrinkle length.
  • 81% of women had a decrease in the appearance of average wrinkle width.
