Okay cool science, how does it work?

In a nutshell a peptide is a short chain of amino acids that are ‘building blocks’ of proteins such as collagen and elastin. There are different types of peptides that affect and assist in building different kinds of proteins within our bodies and synthetic ones can be created to mimic these natural peptides and target specific types of protein development. How Argireline differs from other peptides is its targeted effect on expression wrinkles by reducing muscle movement much like Botox. Although Argireline is not a toxin it does have a similar mechanism of action to Botox.

Botox vs Argireline

Due to the peptide’s effect on nerve to muscle communication the muscles cannot sufficiently contract reducing the formation of wrinkles. Additionally, Argireline also stimulates collagen production needed to smooth out and fill in existing lines and produce firm healthy skin. A bonus effect of Argireline is its ability to retain moisture within the skin. Hydrated skin is healthy and youthful looking skin!

I’m convinced, where can I get some??
