Argireline is a synthetic hexapeptide similar to the (weaker) botulinum toxin, which reduces and prevents lines muscle contraction.
Argireline acts directly on the mechanism of wrinkle formation. It is an alternative to Botox for those who do not want to lose maximum facial expression.
Another important aspect is that by reducing muscle contraction on the scalp, the resulting relaxation promotes local microcirculation and, therefore, hair growth.
The Leuphasyl pentapeptide is shown to powerfully increase the efficiency of Argireline.
