Inhibit the synthesis of SNARE receptor.
It can reduce wrinkles caused by the contraction of facial muscles depth, especially in the forehead and around the eyes.
A safer, cheaper, moderate Botox alternatives, in very different ways for wrinkle formation mechanism of local action.
Argireline is used in attempts to decrease the visible effects of aging by reducing the deep wrinkles and lines that occur around the forehead and eyes.
Chemically, when applied as a solution to specific areas of the face, Argireline inhibits the reactions that cause muscles to move or contract– for example when forming facial expressions such as smiling or frowning.
Argireline is an anti-wrinkle peptide. Synthetically produced and considered to be highly effective, clinical studies indicate it can reduce the depth of existing wrinkles.
Argireline is just a brand name for a particular peptide, acetyl hexapeptide-3 (aka acetyl hexapeptide-8). As a quick reminder, peptides are short chains of amino acids, the foundation for proteins including collagen and elastin, making them essential for healthy, youthful skin, says Shah. While various peptides are common in skincare, this one differs in its ability to reduce muscle movement and the accompanying wrinkles that come with it; it’s the first peptide with a targeted effect on expression wrinkles, notes Shah. “Everyone is trying to mimic Botox's contenders, and so far, argireline is one of the best contenders,” adds Linkner. Argireline is a peptide that affects the nerve-to-muscle communication so that the muscles can’t adequately contract, she explains. Along with its muscle-paralyzing effects, it also stimulates collagen production, further helping to keep skin smooth and wrinkle free.
Argireline also promotes collagen production and optimizes the function of collagen, which both fight fine lines and improve moisture levels in the skin, says Shah.
