What is Argireline?

Argireline is actually a chemical compound that often goes by its more official name acetyl hexapeptide-3. The chemical compound of it does have some fragments of snap-25 which is a substrate of the botulinum toxin which is more commonly referred to as Botox. It is one of the many reasons why Argireline is compared to the same results as getting Botox. Argireline can be added to serums, anti-wrinkle creams, lotions, and makeup products.

How Does Argireline Work?

Argireline is very similar to the way that Botox works. It penetrates the skin which helps prevent the facial muscles from moving and creating creases. In layman’s terms, it freezes your skin in which helps to reduce the formation of wrinkles on your face and around your eyes. Argireline is made out of peptides which are a chain of amino acids that enters skin cells. This is what is responsible for causing lines and wrinkles.

Argireline Results

The facial muscles freeze causing them to become weakened and relaxed which helps prevent the formation of new wrinkles and creases. The same type of results that Argireline can produce is similar to Botox. It helps to fill in the appearance of wrinkles and smooth out fine lines for a much softer appearance.

Using Argireline VS. Botox

Many people think of Argireline as a weaker less potent version of Botox. In some ways it is. Both Botox, as well as Argireline, are derived from the same type of ingredients. Both products also work to target the same areas on your skin such as wrinkles, bags around the eye, and crow’s feet.

The major difference between the two is that Argireline penetrates the skin at a much slower rate. Since Argireline it is a face cream it will only reach the first couple layers of skin. Argireline works great for surface lines and wrinkles but it may not go much further than that. Since Botox is an injectable it can penetrate much deeper and reaches many different layers of skin.

Although the two are essentially working the same way and have the same kind of ingredients to reduce wrinkles. Each one does offer their own unique features, pros, and cons. Argireline is a topical treatment meaning there are no injections whatsoever. Individuals simply rub or pat the Argireline all over their face and eye area. The treatment will begin to take effect immediately and no other work is necessary.

Safer Alternative Than Using Botox

Botox is an injectable which means professionals will use small needles to inject the liquid into your forehead and other areas around your face. It will begin to work right away but many people will notice small areas of redness, tenderness, or bruising around the injection site. Because it is an injectable Botox can often be more effective or last for a longer amount of time than Argireline can.

Botox Injection

Botox is also more expensive (usually $500-$1,000 per injection) than Argireline. Also, it’s more time consuming since you have to have a professional inject it for you. Argireline makes it incredibly easy as you just rub the product on daily. Most people will see results fairly quickly and even better results with long term use. Botox is also not readily available online or at local retailers. It’s not possible to go to Walmart and buy Botox.

Argireline featured on Dr. Oz

Recently, Argireline became one of Dr. Oz’s recommended anti-aging creams. When Dr. Oz talked about Argireline he was very excited about how effective it is as an anti-aging cream. He wanted to show his audience how well it can work. Dr. Oz thought a demonstration of the results would be the perfect way to show how amazingly well it can remove fine lines and wrinkles.

Dr. Oz Argireline

They found a woman who agreed to be on the show. They had her picture plastered everywhere (including Times Square). Then they asked people “How old do you think this she is?“. Most people thought that she was at least 53 years old. Unfortunately, she looked much older than she actually was, in fact, she was only in her 40’s.

What happened next was amazing:

After she took Argireline she looked so much younger. She was able to get rid of her crow’s feet, remove wrinkles, and lines. Without a doubt, she had to of looked at least 10 YEARS YOUNGER. That’s some pretty amazing results to have with an anti-wrinkle cream. This is just one reason why Dr. Oz has praised Argireline.

Argireline Cream Side Effects

Most people have reported having ZERO side effects while using Argireline. According to this study, it is a much safer alternative than using Botox. Unlike Botox, you aren’t injecting a toxin (botulinum) into your skin to “freeze your muscles“.

Instead, it’s a cream that you are topically applying. You can use it almost anywhere such as your eyes or around your face. It almost begins working instantly to improve the skin. In a 2013 study, 48.9% of people found a significant reduction of wrinkles when using it on a daily basis.

There was some controversy over the long-term safety of Argireline. Some people online claimed that they had used Argireline for a while and started having negative side effects. They said it started to make their skin start to sag. This was largely dismissed and they weren’t able to replicate these claims.

For the vast majority of people, Argireline is considered to be safe. If you happen to have any adverse reactions you should immediately stop and see a health professional.

The Cost of Argireline

This really depends on a variety of factors. First, where you buy it is a huge variable of how much it’s going to cost. If you go into a store like Nordstrom and go to their skin care section expect to PAY A LOT for a product containing Argireline.
