ARGIRELINE

Argireline is a peptide, a sequence of amino acids linked together to form a chain. Peptides have the ability to direct cells and tell them what to do. Because of their ability to affect skin cell function, peptides are popular in skin care products.

Argireline is known in skin care products. It can direct cells to produce more collagen. Collagen is a protein that gives skin support and helps to prevent sagging and skin wrinkling. When applied topically, it alters biochemical pathways involved in muscle contraction so that facial muscles can’t contract with as much force. By doing this, it reduces the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. Wrinkles that are visible when smiling or frowning become less noticeable.

Argireline is best for relaxing facial muscles. Some experts express concern that relaxing facial muscles could cause skin sagging over time since the muscle may not support the overlying skin as well. Still, there’s little evidence to suggest this is a problem at the current time

Even though the cream gives similar result with Botox, it has no significant side effect.

According to a study published in the International Journal of Cosmetic Science Argireline appears to be safe even at high doses.
