A youthful-looking face is not only linked to fewer wrinkles on the skin but is also a matter of harmonious proportions and fresh-looking expressions. Over time, wrinkles appear, but the face also loses its harmony: the skin sags, the distribution of volumes changes, there is an increase in hollow areas (temples, cheeks), and the contours lose definition. Facial expressions change as well: facial features harden, expression wrinkles become permanent, eyes appear less fresh.
Cellular bio-revitalisation and dynamic lifting. The anti-ageing treatment inspired by aesthetic medicine to remodel the face oval and facial volume and to fight deep wrinkles and fine lines. Enhanced with Collalift®18, skin-sheathing protector of collagen. The innovative global anti-ageing action of the FILLIFT line is based on the synergistic use of cutting-edge active ingredients that are inspired by the new combined techniques used in aesthetic medicine.
Collalift®18. Dynamic Lifting:
Skin-sheathing protector of collagen. It stimulates the production of collagen XVIII, which is the only type of structural collagen found in all layers of the skin. The main role of collagen XVIII is to wrap, like a sheath, the support structures of the various layers of the skin, making the volumes and contours of the face more harmonious.
Unfortunately, collagen XVIII significantly decreases with age. Collalift®18 has a multi-active effect because, by stimulating the production of collagen XVIII, it acts on all the various layers of the skin, from the most superficial to the deepest.
- Epidermis: enveloping the sebaceous glands, it reduces enlarged pores and refines skin texture
- Basement Membrane (dermo-epidermal junction): it strengthens the anchoring structures between the epidermis and the dermis and combats signs of gravity, sagging skin and loss of definition of the facial contours
- Dermis: it envelops the dermal support structures and the capillary network, strengthening its biomechanical properties and improving skin tone and microcirculation (oxygenation, metabolism and drainage)
- Hypodermis: it envelops fat cells, reshaping the volumes and minimizing the appearance of hollow areas
Dermaplex peptides. Filler:
A complex of patented biomimetic peptides (acetyl tetrapeptide-9 and acetyl tetrapeptide-11), with powerful filling properties. It increases skin density and helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles. It stimulates the production of structural proteins in different skin layers.
- Epidermis: it stimulates the production of syndecans, structural proteins essential for the correct organisation and compaction of epidermal cells. They increase the skin’s resistance and resilience against external agents, the ageing process and mechanical stress.
- Basement Membrane (dermo-epidermal junction): it stimulates the production of collagen XVII which strengthens the cohesion of the dermo-epidermal junction.
- Dermis: it stimulates the production of collagen I and lumicans. Collagen I is the most common type of collagen in the dermis, essential to protect the tone and firmness of the skin and to reduce wrinkles and sagging skin. Lumicans are proteoglycans essential for the correct wrapping of the individual bundles of collagen fibrils and for their optimal three-dimensional structure. They are also fundamental to promote communication between different cells and between cells and the dermal matrix. They also help improve the skin support function of the dermis.
Amplified BTX hexapeptide-1. Botulinum Toxin-like:
Innovative neuropeptide with a powerful dermo-relaxing effect. Extremely effective to intensively counteract the continuous micro-contractions of facial mimic muscles, which cause expression wrinkles, thanks to its dual action:
- On the nerve ending (that triggers the contraction): it reduces the release of molecules that promote the contraction (similarly to what botulinum toxin does).
- Directly on muscle cells & myofibroblasts (dermal cells that can also regulate contractions): it promotes the processes of relaxation and reduces those of contraction.
Therefore, it is not only a valid cosmetic alternative to botulinum injections but also a powerful ally, as it enhances its effect and prolongs the results. Several efficacy studies have shown that Amplified BTX hexapeptide-1 is effective not only on the expression lines on the upper part of the face (wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyebrows and on the eye area) but also on the lines around the lips. Therefore, it smooths out facial features and delivers a fresher-looking and youthful appearance.
What’s in the range…
Remodelling lifting effect cream
Smoothing treatment with a “supporting” effect. Infused with Collalift®18 and Amplified BTX hexapeptide-1, it activates a dynamic cosmetic lift with a 4D reshaping effect:
- it resculpts facial contours
- it restores the volumes of cheeks and other empty facial areas
- it reduces the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles
- it smooths out expression lines
Smoothing eye and lip contour cream
The combined action of Collalift®18 and Dermaplex peptides strengthen the collagen in all the layers of the skin and provides new mechanical support to dermal tissues, reducing the appearance of droopy eyelids, crow’s feet, expression lines and vertical lip lines. Its targeted anti-dark circle and anti-puffiness active ingredients soothe your skin and diminish the look of dark areas, granting fresher and brighter-looking eyes. Day after day, the lip contour appears more defined and smooth. Fragrance-free.
30-DAYS TREATMENT – HYALU&COLLAGEN FILLER lifting and filling concentrate
R1450.00 (3 x 3.5ml)

- PLUMP & FILL, thanks to 5 different types of hyaluronic acid with plumping properties. It also acts on deeper wrinkles such as the nasolabial wrinkles;
- REPOSITIONING, thanks to the synergy of Collalift®18 and Dermaplex peptides, which stimulate the production of structural collagen in the different layers of the skin and harmonize the facial volume and contours;
- BTX-LIKE, thanks to Amplified BTX hexapeptide-1, extremely effective against expression wrinkles. Its thick and plumping texture instantly creates a thin modelling film, which shapes the facial contours by acting like a containing sheath. Firmer and smoother skin. Well-balanced facial contours.
