Reducing Wrinkles with Argireline

Argireline is found to be effective in reducing the degree and severity of wrinkles on the face, and is sometimes used as a treatment for preventing  wrinkle development. It’s a synthetic ingredient derived from natural protiens. Argireline is an interesting and unique peptide that is considered as a cheaper but a good alternative to Botox. 

Facial wrinkling is common as people age. Causes are physiological pathways, formation of collagen, elastin polypeptide degradation and other problems that develop in the skin.  In theory, repetitive muscle movements create lines and wrinkles; and it is believed the attenuation of muscular contractions can reduce the depth of existing wrinkles and prevent the formation of new lines. Sort, synthetic peptides are helpful in decreasing  the formation of facial wrinkles, and many people believe that this makes them look younger. 

Argireline is a common ingredient in cosmetic products including emulsions, gels, body milks, eye creams, sera and others. The recommended dosage of Argireline is about 5% or more, depending on many factors including the speed of wrinkle inhibition a person desires. 

Some of the earlier items used in wrinkle inhibition posed some long term health risks.  That was one of the reasons why Argireline was developed. Argireline was formulated and developed for consumer use through an analysis of skin topography of adult female volunteers.  Argireline is thought by many researchers to inhibit neurotransmitter release with a potency much like other products used previously, but without the negative side effects.What exactly is Argireline?  Argireline is a hexapeptide  which is six naturally occurring amino acids in combination.  It contains an active ingredient of acetyl hexapeptide 3 (AH3), known as a deep penetrating and powerful amino peptide.  This active ingredient assists in relaxation of the intensity and frequency of contractions of facial muscles.  The result of this action is sometimes referred to as a “lifting” feeling.  Argireline also seems to smooth skin through detour of the degeneration of collagen and elastin.  Many people, which using Argireline in cream form, use it around the yes, between the eyebrows, around the mouth and on the forehead, neck and the rest of the face.  Researchers believe the results to be cumulative, and in some clinical studies a reduction in facial lines up t 17%  occurred in a 15 day period, with u to 27% occurring in a 30 day period.  These studies were performed with a five percent concentration of Argireline. 

Argireline is relatively new ingredient in anti-wrinkle solutions, so its long term effects  are not known yet. Its so widely used now and is tested to be safe and effective in several tests as a part of a low formulation in a cosmetic product.
