As we age, often caring for our skin becomes much more complicated. In our youth, we may have only to battle an occasional outbreak of acne. In our adult years, however, Father Time throws us a few curve balls.
Wrinkles, age spots, adult acne, blackheads… you name it, you will eventually have to deal with it. Then the trick becomes how to find the right set of products to tackle all those curve balls. Advanced Dermatology is one of those contenders claiming to help cure your skin woes…but does it? Let’s take a closer look…
Not much information can be found on Advanced Dermatology as a company, other than the fact that they seem to be a well-funded manufacturer of skin care products. Is this lack of information frustrating? You bet. It’s always nice to know as much as possible about what you’re using on your delicate skin. Could this be a red flag? Possibly, but not necessarily.
Product and claims
According to the product website:
Inspired by our deep dermatological expertise, Advanced Dermatology creates a comprehensive skin care system that deeply regenerates skin and gives you a second chance. It’s a real “Cosmetic Surgery” alternative that helps regenerate skin cells at the deepest layer of the dermis so the skin can “lift” itself from within. It turns on the cells that are responsible for collagen production and shuts down the enzyme that breaks down collagen.
The result: All signs of age, even the deepest wrinkles appear less visible. Facial contours are lifted and more youthfully defined. Lost volume is visibly restored.
From day one Advanced Dermatology lifts away past damage and aging to unveil perfect looking skin. Over time, your skin transforms to look younger, firmer and more lifted. This anti-aging phenomenon naturally fills in and smooth out wrinkles from within! Past damage succumbs to flawless, glowing skin. Each scientifically advanced product within this kit works in combination, lifting away past damage to unveil flawless, glowing skin – while continuously working to defend against future damage and aging.
Advanced Dermatology is a proven, powerful anti-aging system containing five revolutionary products: Deep Wrinkle Firming Skin Quench, Overnight Resurrection, Super Youth Serum, Healing Foam Cleanse and Daily Sun Defense. Individually, each product targets a specific skin damage issue – used together, they deliver unmatched results.
We were very frustrated with the search for ingredients in the line of products. A specific list for each product was not only not found on their website, but could not be located on any site, it seems.
Is this a red flag for potential consumers? It should be. One of the most visible, most transparent aspects of any skin care product should be the list of ingredients. Here’s the most information we could find, on the official website:
AT THE HEART OF THE FORMULA
-Age Antagonist Biomimetic Peptides, Stem Cells and Growth Factors work in combination to help naturally boost collagen, elastin and keratin.
– Bio-Concentrated Antioxidants and Vitamins work as a protective field to help neutralize free radicals and protect skin from environmental oxidation.
– Fluorocarbons provide BOTOX like improvement of fine line and wrinkles by refreshing cellular metabolism.
– A revolutionary, low molecular weight hyaluronic acid that contains smaller polymers which allow for better skin penetration. This incredibly powerful natural filler smooths, hydrates and protects the skin.
– Oligosaccharides, Phospholipids Lipids and Polysaccharides deeply hydrate, nourish and protect the face.
– Encapsulated Retinaldehyde (Better than Rx strength Retinol without the irritation) and other brightening ingredients join forces to reverse uneven skin tone and fight discolouration.
– And 20+ cutting-edge anti-aging ingredients that help bolster the skin’s defense against future damage aging.
Application and regimen recommendations
As found on the official website:
Step One: HEALING FOAM CLEANSE
The regimen begins with this foaming cleanser that provides the deepest clean without stripping cells of vital moisture. Gently heals sensitivities triggered by environmental elements while stimulating cell regeneration – supporting the structural integrity of your skin’s cells for a vibrant, healthy complexion.
Step Two: SUPER YOUTH SERUM
Think of it as a super hydrating lightweight, yet powerful free-radical fighter that reawakens the skin’s natural antioxidant network to help prevent future damage and aging. Just a few drops protects against moisture loss while promoting deep tissue repair. This innovative formulation erases signs of environmental damage and aging, while plumping, firming and repairing. Skin is left flawless, luminous and super soft.
Step Three: DEEP WRINKLE FIRMING SKIN QUENCH
This super firming moisturizer repairs and rebuilds collagen, elastin and essential proteins to reclaim the skin’s youthful appearance. Replenishing moisture while strengthening and firming, skin is renewed and visibly lifted to look its radiant best.
Step Four: OVERNIGHT RESURECTION
This clinically fortified treatment targets damage caused by daily stressors while boosting cell renewal to reduce the appearance of deep creases and skin imperfections – all while you sleep. Supercharged with retinaldehyde, wrinkles and discolouration are visibly reduced; skin is smoother, more luminous and noticeably younger.
Step Five: DAILY SUN DEFENSE
A silky, fragrant sunscreen providing long lasting, broad-spectrum coverage while protecting the skin from future damage and aging. A select blend of active ingredients provides full-spectrum sun protection by absorbing and blocking UVA/UVB rays while preventing moisture loss, keeping the skin hydrated.
Also available on the website was an optional Youthful Boost Eye Gel:
Advanced formulation of tetrapeptides and plant extracts promotes collagen production, counteracts inflammation and increases circulation. Deep tissue regeneration firms, smoothes and plumps eye tissue. Eye tissue is strengthened while bags, dark circles, crow’s feet and glabella lines are dramatically reduced. Provides immediate results with long lasting effects.
What about other Advanced Dermatology Reviews
Here too, we had a difficult time producing a wide range of reviews. In fact, the only reviews we could really find were those included on the official website, and those on TheDermReview.com.
Most were all very positive. Consumers claim to see visible results on conditions such as wrinkles, acne, and blackheads. Age spots and other hyperpigmentation were seen to diminish for some consumers, but not all. Across the board, price was mentioned, as the full system can cost upwards of $200. But, for those consumers who purchased the system, results seemed promising.
The Advanced Dermatology system itself is presented and explained logically on the website, and we like the fact that so many common skin conditions could be targeted. Of course, if price is a concern, that would indeed be a consideration with the Advanced Dermatology system.
Overall, we were disappointed by not only the lack of information on the company and the ingredients, but the lack of broad-ranging reviews found. Unless you know someone who was helped by this system first hand, you might be wise to either contact the company with specific questions before you buy…or simply look to other skin care systems to solve your skin woes.
