Question: I recently went to a party and an old friend of mine didn’t recognize me because I looked so much older. I really want to get rid of the wrinkles that make me look older than I really am but do not want to use any invasive procedures. I really want to use a wrinkle cream to help me restore my looks. I read about a product called Freezox in one of the magazines and would really like some info on it. Is Freezox a good wrinkle cream to use so I can get rid of my wrinkles?


Answer: As you age, you may notice the formation of wrinkles around the eyes, forehead and mouth area. The layer of skin affected is the dermis. Collagen and elastin, the main support system for the dermis loses its ability to maintain structural support. This is one of the main causes of wrinkles. The skin’s elasticity is diminished and it no longer retains moisture, making the skin look wrinkled. These factors all contribute to the development of wrinkles.

Amid hyped up marketing tactics, the maker of Freezox provides limited information about their product. It is unlikely that Freezox can deliver on the sensationalized promises made by the manufacturer although it does contain some concentration of skin conditioning ingredients commonly found in anti-wrinkle formulations.

The price of Freezox alone may turn away some potential users, which may be why the manufacturer feels compelled to make outrageous claims. Although it does not seem to be an expensive formulation to produce, it is quite costly to purchase-almost $177.79 for one bottle-with no chance of a refund. It may produce some positive effects on facial wrinkles, but without more information it is difficult to recommend users make the investment on an unknown entity.

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.
