It is the first peptide to be developed with Botox-like activity, but, what is a peptide?
It is nothing more than a tiny protein made up of a few amino acids. In the case of Argireline six, in other words, it is a Hexapeptide. Argireline acts in a similar way to botox, relaxing the features and smoothing the skin.
✓ Acts similar to botox, but softer and more reversible.
✓ Reduces the number and depth of skin wrinkles.
Argireline acts in the same place as botox with a similar result, although softer and more reversible. To understand this we must know that in the skin we find nerve endings, where there is a protein complex responsible for releasing a messenger molecule, or "neurotransmitter", responsible for the contraction of the muscles when we gesture.
What happens if we inhibit the release of these molecules? The muscle relaxes. This is where botox and argireline come into play. The former irreversibly blocks the protein responsible for the release of the neurotransmitter, while the latter "tricks" it and binds to it in a reversible way. In the end, we achieve a reduction in the number and depth of skin wrinkles.
