Agireline peptide is produced by the company Lipotec, which is a cosmetics giant in Barcelona, Spain. Agireline peptide mimics the wrinkle-reducing and rejuvenating effects of other anti-aging products. However, it contains a peptide acid complex, which is formed from natural proteins. This acid complex essentially forms from hexapeptide, which is a long amino acid chain formed from six elements.

Agireline, like many anti-aging products, comes in the form of a topical cream. Authors at the Lipotec website laud Agireline as a safer alternative to many dermal fillers, including a similar product called botulinum toxin. Once applied to the skin, Agireline begins softening and smoothing lines and wrinkles. At a sub dermal level, it relaxes muscles in the face, which prevent contractions and therefore stop the production of wrinkles and creases. Skin with Agireline, according to Lipotec, visibly tightens and softens by as much as 17 percent after 15 days of use.
