Argireline, also known as Acetyl heyxapeptide-3, is a peptide patented by the Barcelona-based research laboratory Lipotec. ARGIRELINE® peptide solution is the first anti-wrinkle hexapeptide with a Botulinum Toxin-like mechanism of action. It has the effect of Botox but without the risk of direct injection. It reduces the depth of the wrinkles on the face caused by the contraction of muscles of facial expression, especially in the forehead and around the eyes. ARGIRELINE® is a safer, cheaper, and milder alternative to Botulinum Toxin, topically targeting the same wrinkle-formation mechanism in a very different way. Clinical studies have demonstrated that Argireline solution reduced the depth of wrinkles up to 17% after 15 days and 27% following 30 days of treatment.
