Skin physically ages for a number of reasons including loss of elasticity, free radical damage, and gravity. This unwanted aging causes wrinkles, sagging skin, and loss of natural facial contours along the jaw and cheek bones.
Facial conformers containing DMAE deliver similar benefits to a face lift without the risk of side effects.

Botox, short for onabotulinumtoxinA, promises to cure many physical problems like frown lines, underarm sweating, and crossed eyes. Botulinum toxin is the neurotoxic protein injected into the face with a needle. This toxin works to tighten the face and reduce wrinkles by paralyzing muscles.
Facial injections of Botox decrease nerve signals in the face, relaxing the muscles and tightening skin. The injections can come with risky side effects and can only be obtained through a prescription.
Although most people see results immediately after the swelling decreases, these short term results won’t last. Injections will be needed periodically, about every 3-4 months, to keep skin looking tight.
The severity of the Botox side effects depends on the condition being treated, other medications being taken, other medical conditions, allergies, and how bodies tolerate the Botox. If an overdose occurs, muscles can be permanently paralyzed.
Common Botox side effects include:
- Droopy eyelids
- Muscle weakness
- Facial pain
- Indigestion of heartburn
There is also the risk of botulism from the toxin spreading. Some symptoms of botulism are all-over muscle weakness, double or blurred vision, voice changes, and difficulty breathing. Some people who undergo botox injections can develop an allergic reaction.
Not everyone who decides to get botox experiences these side effects. However, the results can look unnatural and undesirable when the skin is too tight.
There are other ways to combat aging, such as a cream that contains DMAE to tighten skin.
DMAE products provide a safer alternative to Botox, because DMAE increases the body’s natural ability to produce acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that activates and tightens muscles without injections of a toxin. Along with diminishing wrinkles, DMAE also reduces age spots and other signs of aging.
The body naturally produces DMAE, but not enough to improve medical conditions. When DMAE is taken in a supplement form, the acetylcholine is increased in the brain, then spread through the body for tighter skin. DMAE supplements have been linked to improving symptoms of certain medical conditions.
DMAE can also benefit the brain with:
- Improved memory
- Better cognitive thinking
Topical creams and supplements are excellent sources of DMAE, which is naturally found in fish, such as salmon.
Renowned dermatologist Dr. Perricone helped manufacture his own line of supplements and cosmeceuticals for a healthy lifestyle.
Some anti-aging topical products formulated with DMAE include:
- Lip plumpers
- Face firmers
- Pigment correctors
High Potency Amine Complex Face Lift consists of some of the most effective ingredients to combat signs of aging like DMAE, Vitamin C Ester, and Pycnogenol in larger amounts than the original Amine Complex Face Lift. This product can help restore the facial contour to look natural without the side effects of botox. With continued use, HP Amine Complex Face Lift can have lasting results.
DMAE supplements are a fast and easy way to obtain enough DMAE for improved skin and brain function.
