Why the Advanced Face Firming Activator is Skin Firming

To begin, watch this overview of the Advanced Face Firming Activator:

Advanced Face Firming Activator is formulated with the following key sciences:

  • Alpha Lipoic Acid
  • DMAE
  • Sodium Hyaluronate

What is Alpha Lipoic Acid?

Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) is the ultimate antioxidant, which works to protect skin cells from skin damaging free radicals. ALA helps to diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and discoloration.

In addition, Alpha Lipoic Acid works to:

  • Refines skin texture
  • Reduces pore size, puffiness, imperfections and uneven skin tone

What is DMAE?

Dimethylaminoethanol, or DMAE, is an antioxidant membrane stabilizer. DMAE provides both long-lasting and instant “anti-aging” benefits to your skin and body, even giving an “anti-aging face lift” effect in the right concentrations.

DMAE is an anti-inflammatory that works to:

  • Provide firming and toning benefits
  • Enhance facial contours
  • Strengthen other antioxidant therapies

What is Sodium Hyaluronate?

Sodium Hyaluronate locks in moisture to help diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles while hydrating to renew suppleness in the skin.

Proper Application for Firming Skin on the Face

Ever have a long day and skip your evening skin care routine? Skin firming Advanced Face Firming Activator is a morning treatment, which works for those who forget their nightly regimen.

Dr. Perricone recommends applying in a gentle, circular motion to not only the face, but the neck as well. Be sure to massage the product up to your hairline and behind the ears to ensure the best results.

Follow with a moisturizer, like Perricone MD Face Finishing Moisturizer or Neuropeptide Firming Moisturizer; for those seeking to:

  • Correct the first signs of aging, try the Face Finishing Moisturizer, formulated with Vitamin C Ester, a powerful antioxidant that gives skin a radiant, youthful glow.
  • Restore mature skin to its natural, more youthful appearance, try the Neuropeptide Firming Moisturizer.

  1. It’s the first anti-aging firming product that I can use on my face and not break out. I am over 40 and firming is my primary concern, but I also have normal to oily acne prone skin and live in Florida where it’s very humid so for the most part I had to use products designed for 20 something skin to avoid break outs.

  2. Hello,

    I am a 35-year old woman, who is just beginning to show signs of aging in my face. I’d love to head off the dull skin my mom has, and the conspicuous bags my dad has (which I am starting to show)! I’m now living in a cold, dry climate which has been dreadful to my skin! I would like to find a line of products that I can stick with, and which addresses my skin issues– which currently are the early signs of aging, and the abuse of cold dry weather.

    I would love to assist in testing your products, and providing honest feedback about how they work for me. I enjoy educating other woman about the things I’ve found that help me to be happy, healthy, and gorgeous inside and out.


  3. Im very sceptical. Firstly every company boasts wonderful results using their products, and secondly there is no Retinol in the ingredients.

I love the idea of using advanced ingredients and products that Perricone has to offer and would love to use these in my skincare routines. I’ve bought several Deals of the Day and so far I’m loving my skins reaction to them! Thanks Doctor!!

  25. i had the same sell b4, but 1 oz for $10 only!!

  26. I try other products but always come back to Perricone. I finally ordered the Neuropeptide Cream. OH MY GOSH!! I wish I had taken picturs of the before and after. I am 56 and the lines around my mouth and chin are almost gone. All of his products are amazing.

  27. I would love to try this product and have the Perricone “Glow”. I do use the Citris Facial Wash and love the way it makes my skin feel and look. Being a tester would give me the chance to try more products so I would have a good regimen and a healthy one too.

  29. I love the age fighting ability of Dr. Perricone’s products & would like to be part of their advancements.

  30. In the last couple of years I have noticed a significant change in my skin…and not for the better. I’ve tried alot of products and spent alot of money without results, but Dr. Perricone’s products appear to be the real deal…he doesn’t try and sell his products alone, he also teaches a healthy lifestyle…I would love the opportunity to test his products.

  31. would love to use your products…don’t knwo what to use since they are a bit expensive for my budget…for eyelids and sagging jowls which should I use?

  32. I love this product and use it everyday. I have good genes and an 82 year old father who looks 70, I want to follow in his footsteps and this sure is working.

  33. This has been a product I have tried in the past and along with the gentle cleanser, I have to admit I got some wonderful feedback about how “bright” my skin looked. Despite dermatologist’s comments on the expense of Dr Perricone’s products, I have found them well worth the cost.

    I would look forward to testing any and all products. As a 56 yr old woman, I love positive feedback and it supports my belief in knowledge and research without having physicians get their cut of the pie.

    Thank you, Dr Perricone, for being available to women and men!

  34. I have used this product for almost two months and I love how my skin looks. I would love to win this product and become a tester to try more Dr P’s products.

  35. I am a Tribute Artist and would Love to test Dr. Perricones’ Skincare Line. I perform as Barbra Streisand, so if I look great, then Barbra will look great! Right? It’s like getting 2 endorsements for the price of one. And an endorsement {kind of} from Streisand herself! And who knows, maybe Babs will want to use Dr. Perricones’ skincare products! I hope to hear from you Dr. Perricone and soon. Thanks, and have a Great Labor Day Weekend!

  36. Absolutely the best product to start a Perricone prescription plan.
    No one can be too young to start.

  37. My skin has always been very finicky; it’s sensitive yet acne prone so I’ve had a lot of trouble trying to find a moisturizer that works for me.

    Over Christmas 2008, my fiance bought me the MADE FROM EARTH Vitamin Enhanced Face Firming Serum. I was skeptical due to how my skin tends to react to different products. Well, I fell in love with “Made from Earth” immediately.

    From the texture, to the way it melts into your skin and doesn’t leave that greasy feel, and the fact that it keeps my skin pretty much shine-free all day long.

    I’m now 7months pregnant, and I was worried that my skin would completely breakout from the hormones, but Made from Earth’s “Green Tea Toxin Cleanser” face wash and “3 Berry Face Serum” have kept my skin breakout free and wonderful.

    I love the Vitamin Enhanced Firming Serum – and a little bit goes a very long way, so it’s worth the money!

  38. I haven’t tried this product before, but’ve heard all good reviews. This is a good price to try AF.

  39. Great product. Performs as stated. You’ll notice a difference. Non greasy.

  40. I love AFFA – I am almost out of it and cannot be w/out it. I have combo skin that is somewhat oily and during the summer months this is all I use during the day, winter I follow with face finishing moist. I love the AFFA my pores are smaller and my face just glows, thanks for an awesome product

  41. This one is my favorite. It does exactly like it says. My pores have been reduced, skin clearer and you look like you are glowing. If I miss a day I notice the radiance isn’t there.

  42. I love how this tightens my skin the instant I put it on. It is a must have. $60 is a steal!

  43. ALA is not only good on the skin it is great for the skin inside out. It is in my vitamins that I take and has done wonders for my skin thas is on many medications due to my transplants!

  44. AFFA has become one of my favorite Perricone products. Used every morning, it makes my pores look smaller without drying out my skin or causing break-outs.

  45. It’s not smelling too great but it does work.

  46. I am on my 10th week using this product as part of my Perri-routine. I apply it every AM, and I am amazed at the way it’s addressed my pore issues. The appearance of my pores has been greatly reduced. Thank you, Dr. Perricone.

  47. I love Dr. Perricone products. I’ve ordered before and would love to win this! Thanks for the opportunity :)

  48. I would loveto try this product.I take
    some of the supplements orally that are contained in this product after watching Dr Perricone on my local PBS station and I feel it has helped my skin look more youthful.

  49. My 67 yr. old skin appreciates the way this treatment keeps my skin looking young.

  50. This is a nice lightweight product that absorbs easily into the skin and feels good.
