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.

  1. I would very much like to try this comment. Ever since Ive moved to LA well over ten years ago, my skin has gone from a smooth porcelain finish to well spotty/acne prone and not so porcelain. I still stay out of the sun, but seems like my age (36) is catching up with me. I have The Wrinkle Cure by Dr. Perricone, and follow it to the T, but am not able to afford his amazing products. Thus I very much hope to qualify to be a Tester! Thank you for all you do Dr. Perricone!

  2. I am another person who has tried so many different products to help with the deepening lines from the eyes along the cheekbones and around the outside corners of my eyes. The last product I tried, burned my skin and I had to walk around with what looked like a very bad sunburn for two weeks..I have sensitive skin and would like to try something with real results.

  3. I got a sample of Vitamin C Ester eye serum from Sephora and I have to say I was just AMAZED! After the very FIRST time I tried the serum I could see very clear results: my skin was smooth, tone was even and my eyes look brighter, me 10 years younger. I have tried several expensive skin care lines but I have never been this IMPRESSED!

    I am 44 years old and just got through very hard depression; last year was very tough. Now I’m feeling I’m LIVING again and life feels good. Unfortunately last year with all the stress also left marks on my face – my very first time my skin prone to under eye puffiness and fine lines…. This skin care line is not sold here in Finland, but I would love to be a Perricone tester before I mail-order it! I am convinced that Dr Perricone’s products could heal my stressed skin and boost my mind that way even more! So, yes, PLEASE, let me test them! :)

  4. I have heard many great things about your products and have recently ordered a few. Can this serum be used in conjunction with other serums I have already spent mucho dollars on?

  5. I have heard such wonderful comments about your products that I would just to be a product tester for your company. I just turned fifty-five years old. Noticing the sagging facial skin and turkey chin. Need help as soon as possible. I’m also a veteran living on fixed income. I know that I could not afford your products on my limited income.

    Thanks so much for your time.

  6. I would love to compliment your product to mant people that ask me for advise on beauty product. I am a cashier for a larger retail chain. I have many customers asking what I use. I don’t look my age ,but I notice the fine lines and my “double-chin” starting.I would love to be one of your tester!

  7. I have been trying products under the sun I work in beauty industry and can’t tell you hv tried a lot my skin condition is allways prone to break out and pigmentation and would love to hv a very clear skin as I hate wearing make up.please help

  8. I am a your perfect candidate for a Perricone tester. I am 51 and began noticing deep wrinkles at around 40. I have and am using several different products currently. I have not found one that works to my satisfaction. If your products work, I would like to share my experience on my review/giveawy blog.
    Thank you for your consideration.

  9. The Advanced Face Firming Activator is the one product I’m anxious to try that is proven to help firm the skin. I’ve tried other Perricone products that I love so I know this one must be great.

  10. i tried the dmae serum a few years ago. began to see results but unfortunatley with the economy the way it was i was unable to afford to purchase it .but i liked the product and beleive with continued use you results would be remarkable. kate

  11. I’m approaching my 40s and haven’t really taken that great care of my skin over the years! I naturally have no wrinkles but I would like more radiant, refined skin and smaller pores. This product seems to be a great option for helping me restore the effortless glow of youth.

  12. I am doing all I can to keep my face from aging. Would be willing to try a great product.

  13. I am a 40 year old caucasion female with a fair complexion. All my life I’ve been complimented on my skin but now I’m noticing tiny lines around my mouth which need some attention. I have used anti-aging products from Lancome; Estee Lauder; Clinique, a product [by an anonymous plastic surgeon] that claimed to be developed by the same labs as Perricone products; AND ultimately the Perricone line of products. I have found Perricone’s face firming activator to be the most effective of them all. I understand the importance of having a regular regimen and that is why I am a good candidate to test your products- my skin definitely responds to Perricone products.

  14. I’m currently trying a sample of this product and I LOVE it … I would love to be a Perricone tester!

  15. I took your skin quiz and this product was recommened

  16. I’m 50 years old and doing OK on the wrinkle situation but my skin is sagging and making me look old. I’d love to find a firming product that lives up to it’s claims.

  17. I am in my late 40′s and my birthday is next month. What a wonderful birthday present this would be if I was lucky enough to win this!!

  18. After applying the cold plasma & the face firming activator, I can fill the tingle & immediately my face feels & looks tighter! I love these products!

  19. After washing my face and applying face firming activator, within minutes I can see the bags reduce!! This product is a must have!!

  20. I LOVE advanced face firming… I hace terrible acne scars and have done laser genesis numreous times over the years..that laser does give you a glow.. but is very costly.. I find that I get almost the same glowing affect when I use this product. no joke.. it has faded my RED acne scars.. not completly but i noticed a HUGE improvement..

  21. i love ALL PERRICONE!!! i bought a starter kit and actually sent it back cause i thought it wasnt working.. even though people were commenting on how good my skin looked.. which is RARE cuase i have AWFUL skin with tons of craters and red acne scars.. I had to reorder it all over again.. i cant go without it..BUT i truly believe that perricone doesnt ever pick anyone to be a tester or give away products.. ive never ever read a post where someone actually got chosen… PERRICONE PLEASE PROVE ME WRONG>>>>

  26. Hello! I am in my early 30′s and have noticed a dullness in my skin and loss of firmness. wanh wanh… So far, I feel like products with AHA’s really improve my skin tone, but would love to try this product with DMAE and Alpha Lipoic Acid. I just got your book and am going to try the diet. Replaced coffee with green tea this morning! I would love to be a volunteer for this product. Thank you.

  27. I’m a young adult who has many skin problems, starting with big pores. They gather everything in the air, starting with dust (which I’m allergic to) and it gives me a hard time. No foundation can hide those imperfections, and my pores seem to be getting bigger no matter what. Hot and/or cold showers, washing my face 2-3 times a day, moisturizing, along with products for smaller pores, which I’ve tried without success. I would like to find the product out there that works for me.

  28. I have used Dr. Pericone’s produts for years. I especially love the DAME face cream in his product line. The dame dimishes the fine lines and makes my pores much smaller. Hint: after washing your face with warm water, (I don’t use soap), rinse your face with “COLD WATER”. This helps to close Pores.

  30. I’m 47 and will be returning back to shcool in the summer. Thanks to you, you’ve given me confidence in myself that I’ve never had. Since I’ve been using your $10 samples, I’ve noticed a change in me that has never happened since I’ve been looking for products (for 27 yrs) that would work for me and yours has allowed me to be just me! And not being ashamed when I go out because I feel like a freak with bad skin. With lil money I do have, I don’t have to worry anymore about buying products and praying that they will work. And if not then trying to take them back, when most of the time they don’t.

    Dr. you have answered my prayers with what you do for us women…..

    with my sincerest regards,

  32. I am 56 years old and have tried many antiaging skin care products. I bought some of your products from the Shopping Channel in Canada a few months ago and love your products. I tried the cleanser, complexion corrective, evening repair, and face finishing moisturizer. I had to order a single bottle of cleanser when I ran out. It wasn’t with a special so found it far too expensive to order again on it’s own. I am divorced after thirty years and am in a financial bind. It is difficult for me to use your products ongoing. Is there any way that I could have more access costwise – whether in a study, buying your products directly from you,or any other way? Awaiting your suggestions. I would like to try the face firming activator. A question – what do I do about sunscreen? What do you recommend in this area?

  33. I am excited to hear that this product reduces the size of pores and fine wrinkles. I have relatively good skin, but the pores in some areas are significant in size, and I have never found a product that reduces their size. This sounds great!

  34. I could really use skincare that helps with fine lines, firmness, and tone, as well as pore size and discoloration. In my late-ish 20s, both enlarged pores/oily skin and the first signs of aging are problems–I want something to deal with them both!

  37. Well, I guess the dreaded time has arrived. I have noticed a decrease in the firmness of my facial skin, particularly from the nose area down. I have gradually acquired those lines that appear from below the nose to chin on both sides. I thought they were from smiling, but they remain even when I’m not smiling! Clearly, part of the dreaded aging process. Please help me halt this aging process and smooth and firm these lines with this Face Firming product! I Thank You in advance. Sign me ~ Confident & Hopeful

  38. I am almost 43 and notice fine lines happening on my forehead, between my eyes and next to my eyes…and a bit on my neck too. I am at a loss with all the products out there with what really works. I would love the opportunity to try out your products and see for myself the amazing effects they have


  39. I have the same problem.mostly on my cheecks and nose area.I have struggled with this for several years and have yet to find a product to correct it.Thanks

  40. I am a beautiful 40 year-old American of Color___I suffer from brown spots & would love to tighten-up my face__I have tried several products, but have not been impressed____I would love to become a ‘Perricone Tester’ and prehaps a regular product user___Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter______

  41. would love to be a loyal customer, but am scared to invest in a product not knowing how my skin will react.

  42. Hi, I am 44 and I have the beginnings of turkey neck, the skin is loose and it bothers me when I look in the mirror. Everything is starting to sag. The jowl area, the droopy eyelids touching my lashes and my bust area. Another area that nothing seems to help is the marionette lines on either side of my mouth. They are deep and not budging a bit.

    Would love to test products you believe to work. I am optomistic!

  43. I am ready to opt out of aging any further. I’d like my skin to be luminous, smooth, radiant. Use me as a test subject and we can both compare and contrast the before and after condition of my skin. Sign me up as a testor! I’ve got roseacea, lines, wrinkles,and a chronic medical condition that has definitely had an impact on my skin….it would be an amazing opportunity to prove your products!

  44. I have brown discoloration along my jawline and red pigmentation on my cheeks. I have tried other products, but nothing seems to help – I think that the discoloration is there for good. My chin is actually where my pores are largest (who knew?) If I could find something to even just diminish the redness, it would help a great deal! Thank you for your consideration.

  45. i have heard of this product but never have used it

  46. [...] it as a key ingredient in many of his products. One example is the Perricone MD best selling Advanced Face Firming Activator. The Advanced Face Firming Activator also includes the ingredient alpha lipoic acid [...]

  47. This sounds like a great product. I would love smaller pores!

  48. I am usually skeptical about claims made by antiaging products, but find the willingness of this company to choose product testers from volunteers in the general population to be reassuring. I would be willing to test this product myself, and if convinced to continue to use it!

  49. I have just finished a bottle of this product. It was wonderful. I saw a change in my skin in just a few weeks.

    I look forward to useing it again and trying more Perricone products.


  50. I am wondering how this product would work on my face. I would be very interested in being a product tester. I have tried several products for my large pores and have not found a product that makes my pores appear smaller…I have tried all OTC products out there!

    I am in my “young” 30′s and do not have any wrinkles yet. I have noticed my pores appear larger and my skin continues to be oily. Is it possible that this product would correct those things?
