Understand the Science Behind Perricone DMAE

DMAE can have dramatic anti-aging effects on the skin. DMAE allows for face lift-like benefits as well as other long lasting anti-aging contributions when applied to the face or taken as a supplement.

To understand how DMAE is capable of delivering results, it is important to understand what causes skin to sag, and the science behind DMAE that allows it restore tone and tightness in Perricone DMAE products.


The Science Behind DMAE Bitartrate

DMAE occurs naturally in small amounts in the brain and is important in the process that creates the neurotransmitter acetylcholine from choline and acetyl coenzyme A. Acetylcholine was one of the earliest neurotransmitters discovered, and allows for the communication between nerves and muscles. This important chemical sends the message from the nerves to the muscles to allow them to contract.



Unfortunately, as the body ages, the effects and production of acetylcholine diminish. The effect this has on the muscles behind the face is that they begin to lose their tone, causing skin to appear to sag.

When DMAE is applied to the skin in a cream or treatment, DMAE can combat these signs of aging. This is because the acetylcholine that DMAE produces, works to increase muscle activity, thereby toning and strengthening the muscles behind the face.


Perricone Products with DMAE Bitartrate

Dr. Perricone understands the power of DMAE and has included it as a key science in many of his anti-aging products. One example is the Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation. This product not only includes DMAE, but alpha lipoic acid (ALA). ALA is a powerful antioxidant that protects skin at the cellular level from damage associated with free radicals. Because of this, ALA can help reduce wrinkles, fine lines, pore size, puffiness, and discoloration.

DMAE is not only face firming, but helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, simply by being added to the skin.
