AlphaDerm CE is an anti wrinkle product that claims to work quickly with lasting results. It bases its abilities on DMAE, argireline, vitamin c, alpha lipoic acid, elastin, collagen, and soy. In addition, it uses a UV-A/B SPF 15 to protect your skin from sun damage. By doing this it not only claims to eliminate wrinkles, but also to reduce the appearance of and prevent scars and stretch marks.
Price: $109/4 oz bottle
AlphaDerm has some popularly used ingredients. DMAE for example has often been called the “facelift in a jar.” It has been shown to be the first ingredient found yet that actually has a positive effect on the sagging of facial skin. In addition, elastin is used, which helps the skin to retain its elasticity and therefore prevent stretch marks. Collagen is one of the main substances in the body responsible for elasticity in the skin and therefore the prevention of wrinkles, stretch marks, etc. Soy has been shown to protect and heal some sun damage in the body. Many customer reviews have noted that it absorbs well into the skin.
While many of the ingredients in AlphaDerm have been popularly used in many anti-wrinkle serums and creams, they have not been shown to produce dramatic results as the average user would hope. For example, DMAE slows the progress of wrinkles and sagging of the skin. However it does not reverse the process, nor does it completely stop it. But most of them, soy as an example, have been shown to be effective in the reduction of wrinkles, stretch marks, etc when ingested orally, not when topically applied. The reviews stating that it absorbed well as was effective came mostly from younger users with normal to oily skin. Those who had dry skin or already had wrinkles have often reported no results at all.
AlphaDerm has a studied list of ingredients. But they are also ingredients that have often been orally ingested when studied rather than used in topical creams. If you are hoping for dramatic results, you would be better served going for an actual surgical face lift as this product and most others of its kind are likely to produce noticeable, but not dramatic, results. It has a 30 day money back guarantee, but it also costs $109 for a 4 oz bottle and seems only to work for a select group of people. I would suggest this product for preventative care, but not if you already have wrinkles you would like to get rid of.
