A topical cream developed by Allergan, the makers of botox, PrevageMD is available only as a prescription. It claims to protect your skin from free radicals and other pollutants such as cigarette smoke and air pollution. Its active antioxidant ingredient is idebenone, which is often referred to as coenzyme Q10.
PrevageMD boasts a strong antioxidant delivery system, and they only make one product instead of a whole line. This way they are not trying to push the idea that you need to purchase 3 or 4 products to get the one to work. The website is also forthcoming about multiple physicians who distribute PrevageMD, and the product is backed by the history of the mother company, Allergan. Allergan has developed products ranging from botox to eye drops.
PrevageMD is only distributed through physicians, and not online. So it can be somewhat difficult to find. The website also only reveals one ingredient and not a full ingredient list. While that antioxidant can affect your skin in a positive way, it is not likely to actually reverse the signs of aging already present. But PrevageMD is likely to contain a few irritants and possible allergens. The website leads the reader to believe that PrevageMD can cause a number of negative skin reactions and aggravate skin conditions caused by other products.
PrevageMD doesn’t waste any time in explaining what it is all about. It is a one step program designed for quick and efficient delivery. But overall, the website leaves me with an overwhelming question mark. We know they use Coenzyme Q10, but that’s about it. They boast quality and doctors distribute it, but there is little information available about the product itself.
