Reducing lines and wrinkles requires the right formula and many brands claim to have just what you need to erase lines and wrinkles forever. The approach to treating aging skin is actually more complex than you may be led to believe but, there are options available to choose from. Plastic Surgery is not necessarily a choice for some people who look to alternatives such as topical lifting treatments. Perricone MD High Potency Face Firming Activator is one product that claims to smooth out wrinkles and reduce the appearance of fine lines as an alternative to other methods.
The product is pricey but based upon the benefits that the company says it provides, it may be worth a try. What makes Perricone MD High Potency Face Firming Activator different than all of the other firming serums being being advertised, you may ask? Perricone MD boasts the patented science known as Alpha Lipoic Acid and DMAE (dimethylaminoethanol) introduced by company founder Dr. Nicholas Perricone. The science advance, the company claims provides a “non-invasive” alternative to youthful skin.
DMAE, the company suggests firms, tones, and tightens the skin to give you a more “chiseled” look. A few studies have been conducted on the risks and benefits of DMAE. Although it can be found in several different anti-aging skin care products, question in regards to the ingredient’s safety was examined in a 2007 British Journal of Dermatology study and its effectiveness in a 2004 Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology (Volume 50, Issue 3, March, 2004)
Perricone MD claims that the High Potency Face Firming Activator will reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, smooth wrinkles on the surface, smooth the texture of the skin and leave your face more radiant. The product is supposed to be based on the original formula developed by Dr. Perricone but, the active ingredients are supposed to be more highly concentrated. Clinical studies over a 4-week window produced some favorable results, with 68% of users reporting a change in the width of wrinkles and 75% reporting a change in the depth. 81% of users reported a change in the length.
