DMAE Serum Prep: A Facelift in a Jar?

Dimethylaminoethanol (DMAE), a chemical that occurs in the brain, is crucial to muscle activity.

When used as an ingredient in a facial serum prep, DMAE provides instant, yet long-lasting, benefits that help skin age less.

Looking for a facelift in a jar?

Read on:

DMAE promotes the brain’s production of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that carries messages from nerves to muscles. Acetylcholine is created from choline and acetyl coenzyme A.

Choline is critical for liver and muscle function, and acetyl coenzyme A interacts with other enzymes to build glucose and fatty acids. Acetylcholine is therefore an essential part of communication between nerves and muscles.

Since DMAE boosts production of acetylcholine, which is essential to muscle function, including DMAE in your skin care routine will help firm and tone your facial muscles.

DMAE serum firms the skin and combats sagging by stimulating increased tone in the muscles behind the face. When applied to the skin, DMAE serum renews skin and maintains a healthy moisture balance. DMAE serum also improves skin’s elasticity as the DMAE renews and restores skin cells.

Serum Prep, specially formulated by Pericone MD combines the key sciences of DMAE and Phospholipids, which repair, moisturize, and treat dry, fragile skin, for a more youthful appearance.

Specifically, DMAE:

  • Re-contours skin that is losing elasticity
  • Lifts, tightens, and tones skin
  • Minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

To get the optimum benefits of this DMAE serum prep, use both morning and evening. To apply, saturate a cotton pad and smooth over a cleansed face and neck.

  1. Perricone MD customer base can be older women with very young children. Iam that customer who needs to look younger for my son. As a passionate customer of your products IAM ALREADY AN ADVOCATE.


  2. I have inherited pretty good skin but then I have used Perricone products for many years now. However I am seeing a jowly neckline develop and would love to test the Perricone products that address this problem and the lines between the nose and mouth. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated, I would love to continue promoting your products among friends and acquaintances. Thanks!

  3. I am 55 and haven’t age to bad, but seeing more wrinkles then I would like and my jaw line is drooping more and more each month. My mom has this with her jaw line also and I do not like the looks of it now and I don’t want it to get as bad as hers. I would love to be a tester for wrinkles and firmness. I’ve tried so many different things THAT DO NOT WORK that I hesitate about spending any more money unless I know it works.Thank you

  4. Ok, so I’m 36 and I’m not in love with my skin. I’ve struggled with breakouts (not a ton just always 2 or 3)since my mid-20′s. I was told to try the green line 1st which I love. I didn’t see the anti-aging benefits so I added the serum prep a week ago. I also use the peptide complex after then moisturizer (green jar). I don’t really trust the beauty counter folks anymore. The breakouts and dryness are super uncomfortable especially now the cooler/drying weather is here. Can anyone help? Advice PLEASE?!?! Thanks.

  12. I am a 51 these old woman, I recently lost over 200 pound s and became engaged. I saw you on a real tv program and loved your 3 day diet and total health concepts. My fiance is interested also. We have health issues you address.

  13. I love Dr. Perricone’s products. They have helped me with my lips, neck and tone
    thank you

  14. I’am 35 years and I would like to start using Dr. Perricone products because I heard a lot of good things. I would like to try the anti-aging and vitamin C ester products.

  15. I have heard so much about your products, but before i lay out any more money trying things, I would like to be able to test them.

  16. I am 63, three grown daughters and five grandbabies!! My youngest daughter is getting married soon and I would love to be a beauiful Mother of the Bride. I have always taken care of my skin, been on HRT but now am seeing sagging skin, line and wrinkles and don’t feel as young as I use to feel. I am retired, work part-time in retail and try to make women feel special in their clothing choices. I want to look great too while helping them. I would love to test Dr. Perricone’s products. Thank you for considering me. Barbara

  17. I have quoted Dr. P for years saying salmon like face lift. However I am not using the products that I need because of the cost now that I am on a fixed retirement income. My boyfriend looks young and so would I like to look young. My garden center career left me with sun damage and I have jowls and other sags. I would LOVE to be a Perricone tester. Now off to read the Perricone blog….

  18. I am soon to be 69 and my doctor tells me I look like I would be in my early 50s
    I have “peaches and cream” complextion since I recall and would like to maintain my current complection. I have never been a sun person, I wear a wide brim hat when I go out. When I use a cream it will cause a break out on my face because my poors are so small. This product appears to be perfect for my complextion. I am looking for ward to it use.

  19. I have used the Perricone No Foundation Foundation and continue to use it and love it. I’ve also recently ourchased the “Best of” which contains 7 different products. I love to look natural which is why I prefer the “No foundation Foundation” and at almost 59 yrs. of age my skin is in need of more moisture and whatever products will aid in stopping, correcting and preventing wrinkles and other signs of aging. I’d love to be a tester for any Dr. Perricone products. I’d also love to know more about the supplements and how to know what to buy. Thank you for any consideration you may give.

  20. I am turning 50 this year, and I have signs of aging, such as less supple skin, crow’s feet, and lines between my eyebrows. I would love to look a little younger, or at least a little less wrinkly. I would love to try your product!

  21. I am a 59 year old lady and have taken
    care of my skin all my life. As I am
    ageing my face has sage and wrinkles.
    At the moment I am using Rentinol A
    and would love a try a tester of your

  22. I just turned 54, and have been hunting for new skin care products for about a year. I have been a committed user of another well known line, but am fighting brown spots, losing youthful luster and have dryer skin. Not much in the way of wrinkles, and want to keep it that way. My mother (76) has gorgeous skin and has used Perricone. I would love to try it as well, and have skin like her at 76.

  23. I have always wanted to try these products but they are too expensive!
    I have read some of Dr. Perricones books and loved them. I am quite interested in foods that affect the body.
    I would love to be a product tester;)

    Yours truly

  24. I just turned 60!!! I feel great but so many wrinkles. I inherited skin that just does not age well. I have used many over the counter products hich I have seen a difference but have heard so much about this product i want to test it. I want to find something and stick with it!. I do not want to look my age!

  25. I am mother of two childrens and recently i started loosing weight face seems it looks saggy especially near the nose and mouth area.i want to get rid of this i hope that your product would be the solution of my problem…

    Thank you and more power..

  26. very interesting product, i love to try this

  27. I’m fast approaching 50 and my skin is starting to look rather dull. I want to look as young as I feel. I take care of my body and I also want to take care of my skin and look younger. I would love to become a tester for Perricone. These products sound wonderful! Time is fleeting so choose me quickly! You won’t be sorry.

  28. I’m 56 years young and have tried so many different products to help keep my skin looking great. I am currently using DMAE serum that I found at a health store and now I’m learning of your product. I’m not sure if it’s doing anything for my skin, but would love to become a Perricone tester after reading the reviews about this product. Please consider me as a tester.

  29. I’m turning 43 soon and just starting to notice the effects of 40 plus, just enough so I think something like DMAE serum would really help renew and lift my skin. I’d really love to be a Perricone tester!

  30. I have to say that I have been researching for hours today, and a lot of other days on the different skin care aging processes, their prices, their expected results, even the face exercise program. Although hydroxazine has a big hipe, I think it is because they gave it away at the Oscar’s or something they keep telling everyone. For me, I am 58 and I went back to school. I do not look 58. Everyone guesses me at about 45, so I am looking for something that really works, and with everything out there, I cannot afford to pick one and another until I find one that works. With the Perricone, do you need to also use the DMAE, is this serum just a prep for that? Please let me know, as I would love to try one or the other, but there are so many just on your list alone, it will take me hours to go through this. I would love to be a tester for this, as I feel we could really get a good reading, as I am just beginning to notice a little sagging above my eyes, and smile wrinkles and just a little dullness on my actual face. It would be interesting to see what this serum or DMAE + serum combined resulted in? Thank you and please get back to me before I wind up buying something~~

  31. I am turning 54 this year. I am always told I do not look my age, which is awesome to hear! I just moved my mother and a paralyzed aunt in with me and my husband in September 2010 and the stress is starting to bring me down. I just ordered Derma E Toner and cream to see if it will perk me up a little. I will see if their product works but if not I would love to try to be a PERRICONE TESTER. I have to watch every penny now so the higher price PERRICONE will have to wait for now…unless… you make me your NEW PERRICONE TESTER.

  32. I would love to try DMAE Serum to help keep my skin looking youthful.

  33. would love to try the product….doin research on DMAE…hard to choose which product to buy

  34. Hi… I am 53 but everyone says I look 10 years younger than I am. I never leave the house without my sun block. I try to eat well and always take my vitamins. I am always looking for that one product that will help keep my skin looking youthful. I would love to try your product so that “Father Time” does not catch up to me.

  35. I am a 43 yr.old mother of 3 who has no time to herself. I am a single mother who has seen my face age fast these past few years. I hate to look at myself in any mirror and would love to look better to help me feel better for myself and my children. If I could only find something that could be done to help would truly be a blessing.

  36. I would love to participate in the Facelift in a Jar trials! I am 58, I have fair skin and have been told that my skin is in great shape. I would like to keep it that way!

  37. Sounds wonderful, please let me try it, I will be a forever faithful friend to find something that works and will promote it forever……..

  38. Would love a product that does what it ssys it will do. Let’s face it, if your be yond help then no creams will work. If you have taken care of your skin, even thru trial and error, then I would like to try this one, and stick with it. I too have a little cosmetic store in my bathroom, I would like to just have one product that I am consistent with.

  39. I would love to try this! I just turned 40 years old, and can definitely tell that the skin around my jawline appears to be ‘sagging’ a bit, and I am starting with some fine lines and wrinkles. This sounds like an amazing product!

  40. I always feel so discouraged b/c I feel like my skin looks so bland… I would love to test this product in hopes of feeling pretty again.

  41. I have read the specifics on this product, and a few reviews. I would love to test this product to see if it really will work for me. I have tried numerous products from other skin care lines, and am tired of investing money into products that don’t deliver on their claims.

  42. I just purchased a sample of this and wow does my skin look brighter. I can tell it boosted the affects of my other Perricone products.

  43. i would love to be a tester i’m a mother of 3 and grandmother i’m 43 years young

  44. I would love to become a Perricone tester and host giveaways!

  45. I’d love to try this product. I just turned 58, do not use HRT, and I’m retired…Why all the wrinkles, lines between the brow are deepening, and eye lids are droppy? I’ve got more products on my counter that guarantee in 4 days that MY skin will look and feel younger…Olay, Mychelle, Avalon Organics, Suki, and many more……Is this product better? I can test and we’ll see.

  46. I would love a chance to test this product. I spend alot of money on useless products that are stacking up in my bathroom. If it works I will gladly spend my money on your products.

  47. this sounds great!!

  48. I must try this product! It is my life goal to find a product like this! If this is true I would love to find out and have so many people to recommend it to!!!!!!!!!
