There’s good news for those of us that are not overly excited about the use of Botox. If you’re like us, then you are really careful about what you put into your body. You still want options when it comes to treating lines, wrinkles and signs of aging, but without the use of injections. Your health is number one, and you don’t want the paralyzed appearance that often accompanies the use of over injected botox.
Have you heard of Acetyl Hexapeptide-8? Known by the trade name “Argireline”, this peptide has been shown to be effective at reducing the depth and appearance of wrinkles by at least 30% when used over the course of 28 days. My own experience confirmed this result, as I used the Glow Rescue “intensive super serum” which contains a high concentration of Argireline to target the deep wrinkle between my eyebrows, as well as some wrinkling around the outer edges of my eyes. Initially not much happened, but over the course of a few weeks, I definitely noticed a softening of the dynamic lines and a reduction in the depth of the wrinkles. After about 4-5 weeks, I really had to look hard to see the remnant of the line between my brows as it had almost completely disappeared. Needless to say, this is a product I continue to use on a daily basis.
So how does it work? Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 (Argireline) limits the ability of neurotransmitters to tell your muscles to move. By subtly limiting the tendency to use the muscles that encourage the wrinkling, we relax the skin and facial tension, resulting in a reduction in the appearance and depth of the wrinkle (much like botox). Unlike botox, Argireline doesn’t paralyze the muscle, but merely reduces the reliance on a particular movement, so you will always look natural and never frozen and unnatural.
What’s the best way to use Argireline? We recommend applying the intensive super serum to the area between the brows, around the edges of the eyes, nasolabial folds, and anywhere movement causes the appearance of wrinkles. Apply after cleansing the skin to allow maximum penetration of the peptides.
Key benefits I noticed:
- significant reduction in the wrinkles between my eyebrows and around edge of eyes.
- reduced depth of wrinkles
- subtle reduction in ability to use targeted muscles (but not paralyzed)
- Benefits really kicked in around 4-5 weeks.
