Is There an Effective Alternative to Surgery? Try Face Lift Cream

e of the sure signs of youth is tight, firm skin. As skin ages, it loses the elasticity it once had and takes on a sagging appearance. Some think surgery is the only way to remedy this, but there is a less intrusive and safer option available: the application of a face lift cream.

In order to treat sagging skin, it is best to know:

What Causes Skin to Lose its Firmness

Firmness in skin is determined by its collagen and elastin levels. When the levels of these proteins lessen, the skin begins to develop wrinkle lines, creases and takes on a sagging appearance. Why? These two proteins allow for the rubber band-like ability young skin has to bounce back after it it has been stretched. So when collagen and elastin levels decrease, so does skin’s elasticity.

In order to maintain high collagen and elastin levels for as long as possible, there are several precautionary measures that can be taken, including avoiding the sun and not smoking. This is because the ultraviolet rays from the sun and the smoke from cigarettes release enzymes, including matrix metalloproteinases which break down collagen.

Another step to take is to begin an anti-aging skin treatment regimen. One possible treatment option to include in this regimen is a face lift cream.

To choose the best face lift cream, it is important to know what ingredients to look for.

Powerful Face Lift Cream Ingredients

Do you know what face cream ingredients work? It is important to find ingredients that not only firm and lift, but add protection as well.

Ingredients to look for include:

  • Neuropeptides are small, protein-like molecules that neurons use to communicate with each other. These molecules increase production of collagen and elastin and help with circulation.
  • Alpha Lipoic Acid is a powerful antioxidant located in nearly every cell of the body. It protects the cells from damaging free radicals and increases the healing potential of other antioxidants.
  • DMAE is important in the production of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which is involved with muscle activity, so DMAE firms skin by working to stimulate increased tone in the muscles behind the face.
  • Phospholipids attract water from the environment and lock in moisture where hydration is needed.

Dr. Perricone understands the importance of products with face lift ingredients and has created many of his own face lift creams, including the Perricone MD High Potency Eye Lift Cream. This cream includes DMAE and Phospholipids to immediately lift the skin around the eye area, the area where signs of aging usually appear first.

  14. I have never tried these products (would LOVE to test them all) but if they are a valid alternative to surgery I would be willing to try them out. I have noticed the lost of elasticity around my chin, neck, face and cannot stand it!

  19. Using High Potency Eye Lift has been a real eye opener…literally! It has amazingly made a difference in the firmness of my eyes. The crepiness is gone and my eyeslook firmer, rested and younger,as well as more open. Thank yoy, Dr. Perricone.

I have the utmost respect thenCe Perricon and am looking forward to being a tester for your products. I am 54 years old and am willing to put up shard fought battle against the signs of aging!

  28. I would love to test all your products aas I can’t tell you how many that I have tested over the years and do not work. I will be 50 next week and would absolutely love to test!!

  29. This sentence is so appealing that not only firm and lift, but add protection as well. I would love to be tester.

  30. I have tried just about everything out there, and would love to compare how Perricone does against those products – thanks!

  31. I love Perricone MD products. They are really helping me fight the war against aging. And I’m winning. Thanks

  32. I would love the opportunity to test new products. I have what one would call “mature skin” and extremelly sensitive. Besides the wrinkles, fine and deep, the area around my eyes is really out of control. I have found nothing that really seems to help!

  33. I have not tried Instant Facelift by Perricone, but would love to test it. With so many anti-aging products on the market, one feels bombarded with products. I have stopped buying them unless I try it first to see if it’s works for me. Injectables are also very big with my friends and have been invited to attend a “Botox party” and am almost positive this may be the only answer. Please prove me wrong. Thank you.
