Everything you need to know about Argireline® peptide. *Sponsored*
Many beauty and skin-care mavens are turning to Argireline® peptide: one of the gold standard compounds for both brands and dermatologists alike as a Botulinum Toxin alternative for its anti-aging and wrinkle-erasing properties. There are hundreds of products in the market that aim to deliver the skin firming and wrinkle-reducing results of Botulinum Toxin and Argireline® peptide is without a doubt the best competitor, as the first peptide to really focus on reducing expression lines.
For the uninitiated (and perhaps you remember hearing about them in your high school science class), peptides are compounds of between two and 50 amino acids, which are integral in proteins like elastin and collagen. In short, healthy, buoyant skin can’t exist without them. Thus, in scientific terms, Argireline® peptide (hexapeptyl 8) safely destabilizes and interrupts the formation and strength of the SNARE complex—an integral process for muscle contraction. This is in contrast to Botulinum Toxin, which paralyzes the complex and needs to be applied regularly to maintain that paralysis.
Argireline® peptide specifically targets your expression lines which form around the 11s (elevens) between your eyes, horizontal lines on your forehead, and smile lines around the mouth as a result of both recurrent muscular contractions in your face and the pressure on your muscles to hold those positions, which causes skin tension. These start to form in both women and men in our 30s.
These outcomes are among the reasons why Argireline® peptide is so widely used in the skin-care industry all across the globe, among dermatologists and brands alike. Beauty juggernauts like La Mer, Estee Lauder, M.A.C., Peter Thomas Roth, Clinique, Dr. Jart+, and the Ordinary all feature the peptide in their products.
Here are some products you can add to your skin-care routine right now to get Argireline working for you and to say goodbye to your wrinkles for good.
