Dr. Perricone

Dr. Nicholas Perricone is a board-certified Dermatologist, world renowned healthy aging expert, award winning inventor, educator and philanthropist. He was creator and host of a series of Public Television Specials and the author of several New York Times Best Sellers including The Wrinkle Cure, The Perricone Prescription, The Perricone Promise and Forever Young.

Dr. Perricone was Adjunct Professor of Medicine at Michigan State University’s College of Human Medicine. He is certified by the American Board of Dermatology, is a Fellow of the New York Academy of Sciences and a Fellow of the American College of Nutrition. He is also a Fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology. Dr. Perricone has served as Assistant Clinical Professor of Dermatology at Yale School of Medicine.

Dr. Perricone’s legacy began with his initial quest to find ways to prevent and reverse the negative effects of chronic and sub- clinical inflammation which he asserted was the cause of aging and disease. His inflammation theory was initially viewed as “radical” but Dr. Perricone’s pioneering research on the subject brought it into mainstream thinking.

Dr. Perricone’s inflammation theory inspired him to establish Perricone MD in 1997 and introduce to the world a ground- breaking approach to impede and even help repair damage to skin utilizing nutrient antioxidants in cosmeceutical formulations. These advanced anti-aging topical treatments set a new industry standard for product efficacy with results that often rival more invasive dermatological procedures.

Dr. Perricone’s initial cosmeceuticals program included Vitamin C Ester, Alpha Lipoic Acid and DMAE, all introduced in his New York Times #1 Best Seller The Wrinkle Cure. Published in April 2000, The Wrinkle Cure helped launch a revolution, changing people’s views on aging and beauty. The book became a global phenomenon and inspired a series of New York Times best sellers including The Perricone Prescription, The Perricone Promise and Forever Young. In 2001, Dr. Perricone once again broke new ground with the first award-winning Public Television Special series dedicated to the science of healthy aging and beautiful skin.

With more than 116 US and international patents for the treatment of damage to skin and systemic disease, Dr. Perricone has become the leading authority on the science of beautiful skin. His groundbreaking formulations with Cold Plasma, Acyl- Glutathione and Vitamin C Ester 15, continue to raise the bar for what people have come to expect from skincare and further cement Perricone MD as global leader in the world of prestige skincare led by innovation, research and science.

Dr. Perricone’s life long passion for science is the foundation to his dedicated commitment to unlocking the secrets to healthy aging. It continues to inspire him to introduce revolutionary technologies that will forever transform the face of skincare and get us one step closer to the fountain of youth.

  5. Hi, how can become a tester for your products?

  6. I am 51 and have started to see those signs of aging. I have always had very good skin and took advantage of the fact that I didn’t need to spend as much time and effort as others. Maybe I should have taken more time before, but I would love to start now by being a product tester. I love the idea of a holistic approach and working from the inside as well as the outside. Thank-you!

  7. I write a beauty blog where I review skincare products. I have researched many products over the years but this line has always had my respect. Dr. Perricone is a pioneer in skincare and nutrition. I also follow the Dr. Perricone diet as well. I would be honored to test his products. My followers would also love to hear my reviews on it.

  11. i have been using perricone products for about 4 months. i am going to be 40 next march and a natural redhead. didnt always wear sunblock like i should of growing up but glad i never got into the tanning bed faze. my main concerns are keeping my skin in the best condition i can and working on incorporating healthier foods into the family diet. the price of the products were intimidating at first but through research i have found some great deals!! thank you

  12. I just found this blog site and I am very interested in becoming a tester for Dr Perricone’s products. I am a 60 year old female with relatively good skin. I am starting to see some of that crepey skin under my chin and some deeper lines around my eyes. I have sensitive skin and am also prone to some adult acne. How do you treat wrinkles without thick cremes? So, yes. I’d love to be a tester!

  13. I just tried the advanced eye creme, love it! Great results! I would love to be a Perricone tester, I am at the age 52yrs, trying to keep my skin and body in good shape, so far it has been wonderful results.I love Perricone products.

  14. I tried one of the Perricone products and liked it, but I am not sure what other products would be good for me. Trying to figure it out – would love help! Thanks!

  15. I am interested in natural products and would love to try yours!

  16. Love your products, would love to become a tester!!!!!

  17. I would love to be a tester for your products. I have a Down Syndrome daughter and do not have a lot of money to pay for your products. I wanted to buy your starter kit on QVC, but cannot afford it yet.

  18. Dr. Perricone,

    I have been using your products for 12 years even before you were on QVC. I’m 62 and my face and neck look unbelievable. I do not have any wrinkles, not even on my neck and I don’t wear makeup except for a little eyeliner and lip gloss. Your products are amazing. I would be honored to participate in some testing with your products.My newest product of yours is the Neuropeptide Facial Cream. I can’t believe the glow in my face, such a healthy appearance. I know now that it is the Neuropeptides that has made the difference in my skin. Thankyou, Michele

  19. great website and can’t wait to try the products!

  20. I am very interested in becoming a tester for Perricone products.

  21. I am looking for ANYTHING that is as good as your old hand cream used to be! I have been looking and trying out different products and haven’t found anything that is even half as good as yours was. Why did you stop making it? Right now my hands are so chapped that I don’t like to put them out for people to see, let alone shake. I have even gone to my doctor to get a perscription for something but it just wasn’t as fantastic as what you sold. And I’d love to just purchase it from you. My feet are so chapped that I ruin any hose or thin socks I put on. I just can’t keep them hydrated. Please, if you ever think about making your hand cream again—I would LOVE to test it for you, along with any of your other products! Thank you and yours was the Best,

  22. I’ve been an aesthetician for over 28 years and believe me when I say I’ve tried so many products – I could open my own store. Perricone products are highly concentrated, potent products with very gentle but efficient ingredients. I find I need less make up (I’m 57 years old) and my skin appears more refreshed, firm and less lined and I’m only using 3 products at the moment. I would love to sample more since I would enjoy adding to my present array. Dr. Perricone’s philosophy is so simple and unique – it’s like he coined the adage “Less is more”.

  23. I am 54 years old and have plenty of wrinkles to show for it! owever, the time has come to turn back the clock – enough is enough! I have read the wrinkle book and improved my diet and lifestyle but would now like to go the extra step and change my cleanser, toner, moisturiser routine.

  24. I am 58 and still working. Need help with my brown spots and pigmentation on my cheeks. Look like a racoon, when I’m without makeup. I have heard so much about your products and would love to become a customer but need to test it first. Would you help me, please?

  28. I also wanted to comment for moona — the lady whose face is scarred like an icepick (I’m assuming from cystic acne). I did see something on soft gel’s site — they manufacture a hyaluronic acid that can be absorbed by the body. The market name is Injuv, and they package it and sell it for other companies. They have a video where they show great results for somebody who has a cheloid scar, and I believe there is some mention of taking 2 at a time 3 times a day really helping plump up the skin for cystic acne patients. Now, I’m sure Dr. Perricone’s products are great for the outside, but the HA is good for the inside.

  29. I am 41, and I suffered from adult acne for years. I still have the occasional breakout, but now I have the acne scars. I have used Jan Marini and have found the skin care line to be great. I have tried virtually everything else, other than your brand. I would love to become a tester if it is not too late to sign up to be one. I am also starting to notice the lack of elasticity in my skin and wrinkles under my eyes. I’m not sure how this skincare line compares to Jan Marini.

  34. I am very interested in trying your neck firming therapy, but I wanted to first ask if your company tests on animals.

  35. I am starting your diet. My face is so scarred icepick acne and red scaring all over my face that children ask their moms what happened to my face people do to they wonder if I have been in a fire. I am treated pretty bad by people and hid in my house the past four years. of course I gained alot of weight and now need to loose it for my health. I am tired of being cooped up. Its time to fight the good fight again and stop hiding. I believe in Doctor perricone with all my heart but I can’t afford the products. Testing his products just might help me.I think I could have amazing before and after photos.As for his diet I am eating the stuff he recomends I can afford at this time. Thanks to him at least I know a sound direction to take. Thanks for all your hard work Doctor Perricone.
