Improve and Maintain Facial Contour with Topical Products

Sagging facial skin and loss of feature definition are normal parts of aging. There are several reasons why skin on the face loses its youthful tightness, or facial contours, over the years. One reason is that as skin ages, it loses collagen and elastin, which are both proteins that keep the skin flexible and tight. This results in skin losing its bounce back ability.

Major causes of lessened collagen and elastin levels include:

  • Ultraviolet radiation: UV radiation triggers the release of an enzyme called matrix metalloproteinases, which breaks down collagen as it is responsible for dermal photoaging in human skin
  • Free radical damage: Caused by smoke, chemical exposure, and more

Another reason the skin loses the defining facial contours it once had as it ages, is that it loses moisture in its top layers. When the skin becomes dehydrated, it can create a sagging appearance. In order to keep the skin moisturized and looking young for as long as possible, it is best to wear sunscreen and drink up to 8 glasses of water each day.

Because scientists now better understand what causes the skin to lose its contours, they have been able to create ways of protecting the skin and treating skin that has already begun to lose its elasticity.

Facial contour does not have to be lost with age if you understand what face cream ingredients work when looking for treatment.

Ingredients to look for include:

  • DMAE — Dimethylaminoethanol (DMAE) is involved with muscle activity; it helps firm the skin by working to stimulate increased tone in the muscles behind the face.
  • Neuropeptides — Small, protein-like molecules that boost collagen and elastin levels.
  • Phospholipids — Add moisture to the skin, and increases protection to the skin from free radicals.
  • Polyphenols — Powerful antioxidants that enhance the body’s immune system and protect it from free radical damage internally.
  • Alpha Lipoic Acid — The ultimate antioxidant, it is located in nearly every cell of the body and is very effective against free radical damage.

One product that is very effective in adding definition to the face is Dr. Pericone‘s Neuropeptide Facial Contour, which includes the key sciences DMAE, Neuropeptides, and Phospholipids. Cold Plasma cream incorporates DMAE and Neuropeptides as well as L-tyrosine to brighten skin and give off a youthful glow.

  2. I am 43 and have been going through the ups and downs of Fibromyalgia and all the other things that go hand in hand with that for more than 10 years now. I have also gone through menopause already. It’s seems I have aged alot in the last few years. I have been hoping to find something to help with this. I have noticed sagging in my face, and dullness in my skin, as well as dark circles under my eyes and starting to get a double eyelid on my right eye. I have always taken good care of my skin. The struggle has come with the illness and the financial strain it has unwillingly thrust upon me. I would love to be a tester for your products and show what your products are able to do for people all over the world. Thank you for you time.

  3. A facial contour that can correct my drastically sagging appearance . can you imagine being a woman of 46 yrs that has a neck looking like turtle coming out of the shell? that is why I was called Tortuga (the Hispanic name for turtle) for years. the discriminating treatment I had to endure was horrible. never have I thought that a serum could change this horrible look to a normal state. I am a student trying to transform my career into the medical field. I had lost my position due to the traumatic drop in our economy and decided to make over my career. Now, I need to make over my body also.. I started exercising, eating better and now it’s time for serious skin care! being able to become a trusted product tester would be a god send. this would be a changing point in my skin care along with my life change. thank you for this opportunity…..

  4. having gone through menopause at age 40, my skin has lost elasticity and needs a “perk me up”.
    I would love to try this product.

  5. I am 68 years old, white female, in good health, not on anything but tylenol, and bone meds. I feel I would be a good candidate for your facial products. I have used some of your products in the past, would like to try out your new products.

  6. My favorite product!

  7. [...] Facial contour does not have to be lost with age if you are aware of what skin-care ingredients work effectively when looking for treatment. [...]


  9. Again I am so glad that I received a sample of this product. This is one of those super WOW’s when after a few weeks my family thought I had a face lift. They all gave me a big WOW. It sure made me feel good. Great consistency, fast absorption, no odor, and leaves your skin like a baby’s behind. Very supple. I highly recommend this product to everyone.
