The Father of The Inflammation Theory
Dr. Perricone's legacy began with his initial quest to find ways to prevent and reverse the negative effects of chronic and sub-clinical inflammation which he asserted was the cause of aging and disease. His inflammation theory was initially viewed as “radical” but Dr. Perricone’s pioneering research on the subject brought it into mainstream thinking.
The Birth Of Cosmeceuticals
Dr. Perricone's inflammation theory inspired him to establish Perricone MD in 1997 and introduce to the world a ground-breaking approach to impede and even help repair damage to skin utilizing nutrient antioxidants in cosmeceutical formulations. These advanced anti-aging topical treatments set a new industry standard for product efficacy with results that often rival more invasive dermatological procedures.
The Wrinkle Cure
Dr. Perricone's initial cosmeceuticals program included Vitamin C Ester, Alpha Lipoic Acid and DMAE, all introduced in his New York Times #1 Best Seller The Wrinkle Cure. Published in April 2000, The Wrinkle Cure helped launch a revolution, changing people’s views on aging and beauty. The book became a global phenomenon and inspired a series of New York Times best sellers including The Perricone Prescription, The Perricone Promise and Forever Young. In 2001, Dr. Perricone once again broke new ground with the first award-winning Public Television Special series dedicated to the science of healthy aging and beautiful skin.
