What is Flexiseq®?
Flexiseq is a gel containing nanostructures called Sequessome™ vesicles, which are able to cross the skin and target sites of pain.
Flexiseq is a pain relieving gel
Flexiseq is a topically applied gel. Flexiseq is specially formulated to combat joint pain associated with osteoarthritis. Daily application in the morning and evening is enough to start to bring about real improvement in joint pain in as little as two days.
Flexiseq ingredients have an excellent safety profile
Flexiseq does not contain any pharmaceutical drug, and consequently Flexiseq benefits from an excellent safety profile avoiding the documented risks that may be associated with many common pain medicines.
Flexiseq is clinically proven
Flexiseq is clinically proven to greatly reduce pain and restore joint function (mobility). Flexiseq was shown to be as effective as a leading oral prescription-only medicine in trials with hundreds of patients.
Flexiseq is not a pharmaceutical
Flexiseq is registered as a medical device. Flexiseq does not contain any pharmaceutically active ingredients and this means it doesn't contain any drugs that might interact with medication you may be taking for your pain or any other ailment.
What is Sequessome Technology?
Flexiseq™ is an aqueous gel packed with microscopic spheres called Sequessome™ vesicles. These spheres are made of molecules called phospholipids which naturally occur in the body and variants of which contribute to the lubricating properties of synovial fluid.
In addition, Sequessome™ vesicles are highly flexible and compressible which increases their lubricating ability.
Journey to the Joint
After Flexiseq™ is applied to the skin, the water-based gel begins to dry which triggers the activity of the Sequessome™ vesicles contained within.
A Sequessome™ loves to be surrounded by water and as the water in its surrounding gel evaporates, it seeks out the next closest source of water – below the skin. The super-flexibility of the micro-spheres allows them to squeeze easily between skin cells and travel gently along the natural spaces found between them.
A layer of Flexiseq gel contains millions of Sequessome™ vesicles and this great volume of spheres entering the skin drives those already inside even deeper. Subsequently, Sequessome™ vesicles continue travelling to beyond the skin, through underlying tissues and into joints where they populate the watery environment of the synovial fluid.
The Sequessome™ vesicles contained within the joint capsule are attracted to the cartilage and accumulate on the damaged cartilage surfaces creating a “film” of lubricating phospholipids.
Through this action, Sequessome™ vesicles replenish the depleted layer of lubricants otherwise found on healthy cartilage, resulting in proven pain relief and reduction of joint stiffness. Longer term, further deterioration of the cartilage may be slowed.
How to use Flexiseq Gel:
- Apply twice daily to the affected joint. It is recommended that you apply Flexiseq in the morning and at night to skin that is clean and dry.
- Use enough gel to evenly cover the whole joint. For example, when treating the knee, we recommend using a gel length of around 7 cm (roughly half the length of the Flexiseq 50 g tube).
- It is important to allow Flexiseq to dry before covering. Failure to do so may impair the absorption of the product. The gel should dry after no more than 15 minutes. If drying time takes longer, just use a little less next time.í¢ä‰åäó_
