After the medical treatment, Agepeel Cream minimizes muscle contraction and thereby reduces the formation of fine lines and reduces wrinkles, thanks to the use of Argireline molecule and Caviar Extract.
MECHANISM OF ACTION ON A MUSCLE CONTRACTION
In a muscle contraction (CM) the following elements are involved:
a) Muscle fibres
b) Motor Neuron
c) Acetylcholine (ACh)
d) ACh receptors (AChRs) on the surface of muscle cells
e) SNARE complex
1. In order for a muscle to contract, you need to connect a neuron with the muscle fibres. A union of a neuron with the muscle fibres is called motor unit or motorplate.
2. The neuron stimulating muscle tissue is called motor neuron.
3. The neuromuscular junction refers to the terminal axon of a motor neuron with the motorplate in muscle. The axon contains many membrane-bound vesicles called synaptic vesicles.
4. For a muscle contraction, there must be a stimulation of the motor neuron that sends the signal and connect with the muscle fibres. Then ACh inside the vesicles is released. The process is regulated by the SNARE complex composed of three different proteins.
5. ACh binds to the muscle fibre where AChRs are and caused a series of changes that ultimately will involve the contraction of a muscle.
Once the treatment has begun at the clinic, it is advisable to do maintenance treatment at home with self-applied exfoliants with lower concentration (Pureglycopeel 5%) and serums or creams with SPF that will supply moisture and nourish to help the new skin to appear radiant and healthy.
