25 4 Growth Factors Rahul C Mehta and Richard E Fitzpatrick BIOCHEMISTRY OF SKIN AGING AND WOUND HEALING Extensive research on skin aging in the last decade has resulted in an improved understanding of the pathophysiology of intrinsic (age-related) and extrinsic (UV-mediated photoaging) aging. Biochemical processes resulting in skin damage following exposure to UV radiation are now being identified and understood (1). A correlation between biochemical processes following photodamage and creation of wound is emerging.
In vivo and in vitro placebo-controlled cosmeceutical studies performed by the company (Lipotec) reportedly confirm efficacy at reducing neurotransmitter release and decreasing wrinkle depth as assessed by skin topography analysis of silicon imprints. The studies also showed a synergistic effect when both Leuphasyl® and Argireline® were applied together (Centerchem). ) (25), is proposed to act similarly to Walglerin-1. Walglerin-1 is a neurotoxin found in the venom of the temple viper, which causes reversible antagonism of muscular nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (mnAChR) at the postsynaptic membrane.
34). The topical neurotransmitter-affecting peptides that are currently marketed in cosmeceuticals reportedly function to decrease facial muscle contraction and thus reduce lines and wrinkles by raising the threshold for minimal muscle activity, requiring more signal to achieve movement and reducing subconscious muscle movement over time. Most of these peptides act on the soluble N-ethylmaleimide-sensitive factor attachment protein receptors (SNARE) complex, whereas others target different parts of the NMJ or certain neurotransmitters.
