You need a pick-me-up for your skin, and fast. Is it out there, or will you have to go through the trouble of scheduling appointments and waiting for results that are no guarantee from expensive skin procedures?
Luckily, Dr. Perricone has found a substance that can create an “instant lift” effect that works as fast as you need it. By harnessing the power of DMAE, you can start to notice improvements within 20 minutes of application.
This article will discuss:
DMAE, or dimethylaminoethanol, is a substance that increases the production of the chemical acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter that sends signals responsible for causing the muscles to contract and tone. Since the skin is attached to muscles, better toned muscles leads to firmer skin that doesn’t sag as much.
DMAE works best in combination with other nutrients and antioxidants, since it has the unique ability to enhance the effects of other antioxidants. DMAE can incorporate itself into the cell membrane, providing an extra layer of protection to the cell. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals, and in the case of DMAE, they can add another form of defense to the cell membrane so that it doesn’t come under attack by scavenging cells.
DMAE is found naturally in fish like salmon, but it is found more often either in supplement form or in topical creams. Dr. Perricone’s line includes both a specific DMAE supplement and a range of creams that contain the substance. Since DMAE can be applied to any part of the body, it is found in creams for the face, eyes, and neck.
You can even use DMAE on other parts of the body like the thighs and buttocks. Dr. Pericone has done studies showing that in the proper concentration, DMAE can reduce dimpling in those areas. However, the effects probably won’t be as drastic if you use a face cream with DMAE to try to correct imperfections elsewhere on the body.
Since DMAE skin cream works best with other nutrients, you can find DMAE in combination with other powerful skin care ingredients like alpha lipoic acid and vitamin C ester.
Not only will you see the effects of DMAE as a proven skin firmer, but depending on the composition of the cream, you may also reap the benefits of alpha lipoic acid’s abilities to:
- Provide strong antioxidant properties
- Reduce lines and wrinkles
- Even skin tone
- Reduce imperfections and puffiness
If the product contains vitamin C ester (like the Concentrated Restorative Treatment), there are other benefits:
- Reduction of redness and inflammation
- More radiant skin
- More antioxidant properties
Creams formulated with these that include DMAE can have dramatic effects. In fact, you can start to see results in about 20 minutes. DMAE is one of the active Perricone Cold Plasma ingredients that causes muscles under the skin to tighten and provide a lifted appearance to sagging skin. In a clinical trial, Dr. Perricone applied DMAE to half of the face and neck of 17 participants. After waiting about 20 minutes, he asked a dermatologist and a cosmetic expert if they could distinguish a difference between the two sides. The results were pronounced: just one application of the cream produced noticeable effects which lasted 24 hours.
Even better, with prolonged use, creams containing DMAE can have a permanent effect on skin. Patients have even reported a lifting effect of the nose due to the tightening of the muscles in the forehead. Without going under the knife, you can see dramatic lifting effects that only take the length of a TV show to appear. So why wait weeks for swelling to go down when you could have a tighter and firmer face by the end of the half hour?
Creams with DMAE are great for any occasion, whether it’s as a part of your daily skincare routine or you need a quick lift for a major event. Bodybuilders have been spotted using DMAE before competitions in order to get a boost of acetylcholine to add definition to their muscles.
However, you don’t have to be in a competition to use DMAE. Whether you find yourself in a situation where you’re going to be in a revealing outfit or you just want to look your best for a night, DMAE is the perfect skin care ingredient to give skin an instant lift and a more youthful appearance almost instantly.
If you plan ahead of time and start on a DMAE regimen soon, your skin can also start to benefit from its permanent firming effects, giving skin a smooth and radiant appearance that is cost-effective, fast, and painless. The instant face lift does exist, and there’s no catch. By introducing just one key ingredient into your skin care regimen, you can benefit from the lifting effects of DMAE.
