When you are making decisions about your body such as the use of skin care products it is essential that you carefully consider all aspects of the decision in order to ensure that you have made the decision that is right for you. This means that you must see beyond what you may have “heard” about a product and rather do your own research based on your particular parameters. Each person’s body is different and will respond differently to products, so you should know yourself and your tendencies toward products before you decide to try a new one.

One of the hottest new products in the anti-aging skin care market is the product Argireline. This cream is touted as a painless and injection-free alternative to Botox that significantly reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles with regular use. If you are interested in this product you are probably wondering about its safety and effectiveness. When it comes to skin care products these are two categories that make the most difference to those that use them.

As for the safety of Argireline, there have been many clinical trials and voluntary tests administered that have been made to research how the product works on a variety of different skin types. These trials were created based on the theory that it is effective in the reduction of visible lines and wrinkles in the skin caused by the consistent contraction and release of facial muscles. The results of these volunteers indicated that these theories were supported by the actual efficacy of the cream.

Particular results of these studies indicated that some users would see reduction in the appearance of their fine lines and wrinkles within just a few minutes of the application of the cream. Another showed that with consistent use over a period of thirty days volunteers showed up to a 30% reduction in the appearance of those lines and wrinkles that are said to be “mechanical” in origin, meaning that they are not the result of such influences as weather or sun, but result from the repetitive use over years of the muscles supporting the skin.

Though Argireline is a relatively new development in the skin care industry there have been clinical trials to gauge the safety of the cream. These trials suggest that when created with low concentrations of the actual chemical compound referred to as Argireline, acetyl hexapeptide-3, skin care creams are safe for most skin types.
