Question: I went to the spa last week for a facial and was told I should look into a good wrinkle cream. She pointed out the deep lines on my forehead and around my mouth. I definitely do not want Botox or any or Juvederm. I’ve seen how that looks in the tabloids. I read about a wrinkle cream called Dermavisu. Is this product worth the money or is it just hype?


Answer: As we age, we start to see the formation of Wrinkles. The dermis (outer layer of skin), begins to thin. The skin loses both elastin and collagen, two vital components for skin support. The skin becomes loose and begins to sag. This is one of the main causes of wrinkles. Skin also loses elasticity and moisture as we age. These factors, among others, all contribute to the development of wrinkles.

It contains following ingredients:

  • Hydronium 55
  • Snap-8
  • DMAE
  • Franckinscense
  • Jojoba

Dermavisu contains several ingredients commonly found in anti-wrinkle creams. Though popular, their effectiveness is limited and we question the ratio of effectiveness to cost for this skincare product.

If you do shop for an anti-wrinkle product in a health store, pharmacy or on the Internet, you’ll often find hundreds of different brands containing a confusing array of ingredients. You may be tempted to experiment with different products until you find one that works. But this approach may be expensive. More importantly, not all products contain the quality and quantity of necessary ingredients to positively promote long-term improvements on the appearance of wrinkles and an overall healthy complexion. That’s why you’ll need to do a little bit of research to find the best, most potent brand for your needs.
