Synake, also seen as Syn-ake or Syn-Ake, is an anti-aging treatment developed by a Swedish company, meant to be applied topically to the skin to fight wrinkles and other visible signs of aging. The treatment mimics, and is essentially a synthetic form of, snake venom. This is presumably how it gets its name. Synake replicates the effects of Waglerin 1, a peptide found in the venom of a viper species native to Southeast Asia. Peptides can help increase collagen levels in aging skin. But, what exactly does Synake do, and what are the side effects? In this article, we will take a look at the many facets of Synake.
How Synake Works
The idea behind this anti-aging ingredient is that pronounced wrinkles are often caused or exacerbated by muscular movement in the face. For example, there are 43 facial muscles that are used in various combinations to smile, frown, and make other expressions. This can stretch out the skin and cause wrinkles to form. So, using the concept that snake venom can cause muscular paralysis, some anti-aging products use Synake (the synthetic snake venom) to deaden muscular movement in your face, temporarily. This works in a similar fashion to Botox, which also causes temporary muscle paralysis in your face to lessen wrinkles. And, these are both short-term fixes, which will require additional treatments or applications in order to prolong the effects.
Using Synake on Your Face
Some creams and serums already include Synake as an active ingredient. Because this isn’t a very common ingredient, these products might be expensive. However, if you do decide to use one of the products that does contain Synake, you should be careful about how you apply it. You should only use Synake topically (not internally) and be sure to avoid your eyes, much like with other products. Apply the product to the age-affected areas of your face and neck, including around the mouth and eyes, but not in them. If you have very sensitive skin, you might want to apply the product to a small spot of skin, like on the inside of your wrist, before putting it all over your face. If you plan to create your own product by adding Synake to another skin cream, be careful about which products you combine. Synake is water soluble so it can go in most creams, but don’t combine with other products containing Synake.
Synake Side Effects
You should certainly ask your doctor before including Synake in your daily routine, as the compound does have some fairly aggressive side effects. It is, after all, a mild paralytic that you apply to your face. Much like Botox, Synake relaxes muscles in your face. So, you may experience the kind of expressionless side effect that some Botox users get. This can affect your ability to emote as well as communicate with others. In rare cases, whole-body muscle weakness could occur if the skin absorbs the compound entirely and allows it to leak into systemic blood. This would mimic the effect of the natural snake venom, which can actually be fatal to humans. You shouldn’t necessarily be put off by this rare instance, however. As with any new routine, including supplements, you should consult your doctor to be sure that the risk for adverse side effects is low. You may find that Synake is exactly the skin care solution you need to promote smooth, younger-looking skin.
