Topical Treatments That Reduce Wrinkles
Studies show the following ingredients can reduce wrinkles. Most are found in a variety of skin-care treatments, both prescription and over-the-counter.
Alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs): These natural fruit acids lift away the top layer of dead skin cells, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, particularly around the eyes. New evidence shows that in higher concentrations, AHAs may help stimulate collagen production. Joli Visage Skincare offer two AHA's, Stop The Clock & AHA Transformation Treatment Crème.
Retinoids(including Retin A): Retinol is a natural form of Vitamin A found in many over-the-counter products. Studies show that in a stabilized formula, in high concentrations, it may be as effective as Retin A, without the side effects, such as skin burning and sensitivity. Joli Visage Skincare offers 1% Retinol Night Cream & Retinol Tube 1.5% without irritating the skin.
Topical Vitamin C 20%: Studies at Tulane University, among others, have found it can increase collagen production, protect against damage from UVA and UVB rays, correct pigmentation problems, and improve inflammatory skin conditions. The key, however, may be the type of vitamin C used. To date, most of the research points to the L-Ascorbic form with Ferulic a powerful anti-oxidant as the most potent for wrinkle relief.
Idebenone: This chemical cousin to the nutrient coenzyme Q10 (Co-Q10) is a super-powerful antioxidant. In one study published recently in the Journal of Dermatology, doctors found that with just 6 weeks of topical use, there was a 26% reduction in skin roughness and dryness, a 37% increase in Hydration, a 29% decrease in lines and wrinkles, and a 33% overall improvement in sun-damaged skin. Other studies have found similar results. Our Joli Visage Nutrient Serum, Advanced Rejuvenation SPF 36 and ALA Eye & Neck Lifting Crème our powerful Idebenone products!
