Pentapeptide-18,Acetyl hexapeptide-3 (reference: Argirelox)
While waiting for the next injection
It fights expression wrinkles by modulating muscle contraction in the pre-synaptic pathway and is specially addressed to topical formulations claiming to complementthe injections of Botulinum Toxin Type A for enhanced anti-aging results. Recently awarded with bronze at In-Cosmetics inHamburg.
Mechanism of action
It targets two fundamental factors for relaxing muscle contraction and thus attenuating expression wrinkles: reduction of Acetylcholine release while blocking the entrance from calcium ion.
Almost 3 times greater wrinkle reductions when the injection of Botulinum Toxin Type A was complemented with the peptide cream, compared to placebo. Noticeable effect even after 6 months, the recommended time between sessions.
