LA PEAU SKINCARE is packed with hexapeptide – a peptide composed of the amino acids alanine, arginine, histidine, leucine, phenylalanine and tryptophan.
What Are the Benefits of Acetyl Hexapeptide 8?
Argireline may have the potential to help stimulate the production of collagen in the skin. Collagen production reduces as we age and is responsible for the elasticity and firmness in the skin.
The hydrating abilities of Argireline is proposed to come from its collagen stimulating capability. Dehydration is a sign of aging, the skin loses its ability to produce hyaluronic acid as we age which is a molecule in the skin responsible for holding moisture in the skin. Exfoliation and the use of occlusive moisturizers can help to keep water in the skin but the use of a humectant such as hyaluronic acid or an ingredient such as Argireline can help to draw the moisture into the skin.
Dynamic wrinkle formation
This is the main effect of Argireline. It works by inhibiting a receptor that is in part responsible for muscle movements, reducing the ability of the muscles to contract. This reduces the underlying cause of fines line and wrinkles, reducing their appearance.
Application of anti aging serums and creams can also be done at home and requires no appointments with a dermatologist or time away from a busy schedule. If you’re using a product that contains the peptide and are not doing so under the care of a doctor, you should watch closely for the development of side effects, as the ingredient doesn’t just work on the surface of the skin, but affects neurological impulses.
