Key Sciences

Alpha Lipoic Acid

A fatty acid found in every cell in the human body, ALA reduces the appearance of lines, wrinkles and enlarged pores over time. Fat and water-soluble, ALA is highly absorbable and works alongside the body's own antioxidant system.

DMAE

Naturally produced by the human brain, DMAE helps visibly lift sagging skin over time. Easily and quickly absorbed, it visibly plumps skin to help support skin's surface and protect against drying environmental aggressors.

  • Q:

    What is the percentage of glycolic acid in this toner?

    Thanks

      A:

      Thank you for your interest in Dr. Perricone's products.

      It is a long-standing company policy that we cannot disclose the percentage of product ingredients, as this is proprietary information. Research has shown that it is not the concentration , but rather the combination of ingredients that determines a product's effectiveness. We do list all ingredients on our website: www.perriconemd.com

      The active ingredients Dr. Perricone uses in his products are carefully combined with other ingredients to create the most effective products possible. The Alpha Lipoic Acid that Dr. Perricone uses in his products is exactly the same as the one produced by our bodies and therefore an incredibly concentrated and potent form. The DMAE is of the highest quality and is delivered by his patented NTP complex, allowing maximum penetration to the cells. The Vitamin C Ester is patented by Dr. Perricone and is fat and water soluble, giving benefits that outweigh Ascorbic Acid Concentrations.

      Keep in mind that all percentages are relative and easily manipulated since they correlate to the amount of other ingredients. I can assure you that Dr. Perricone has worked very hard to create a blend of ingredients that make the products more than the sum of their parts.

      Have a nice day!

  • Q:

    I am using the blue plasma cleanser and the firming facial toner, but do not know which to use first since the blue plasma cleanser is not to be rinsed off. Thanks for your advice.
    Asked on 8/24/2015 by Robin from SC

    1 answer

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      Great question!

      The Blue Plasma Cleansing Treatment is a cleanser and should be applied first, once absorbed into the skin, then apply the Firming Facial Toner followed with your next Perricone treatment and a moisturizer follows last.

      Have a nice day!

  • Q:

    IS THIS SAFE FOR PREGNANCY? COULD YOU RECOMMEND ANY SAFE PRODUCTS FOR PREGNANT WOMEN?
    Asked on 4/21/2015 by nancy from Canada

    1 answer

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      Thank you for your interest in Dr. Perricone's products.

      Dr. Perricone's products have not been tested on women who are pregnant or nursing. Although Dr. Perricone does not foresee any problems with this, it is important that you know that they have not been tested. If you have any concerns about product usage, we recommend that you discuss this with your physician. We do list our ingredients on our product packaging and on our website, so we recommend checking these ingredients with your personal physician.

      I hope this is helpful.

  • Q:

    I have just started using your no-make-up serum and love it. I thought about using the firming toner, but I have fair, dry sensitive skin and I was disappointed to see that alcohol is the second ingredient. Do you still think I should try this product?

      A:

      Thank you for contacting Perricone MD.

      The majority of our customers do not have a problem with Dr. Perricone's skin care line; however, everyone's skin reacts differently to different ingredients; Since you have sensitive skin we recommend performing a patch test prior to full application.

      I hope this is helpful.

  • Q:

    Could you combine firming facial toner and serum prep? If so which one should be applied first?
    Asked on 6/30/2014 by yimei from Cleveland, OH

    1 answer

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      No, it is not necessary to layer these 2 products one after another and if you have both I would recommend alternating and using the Serum Prep in the AM and the Firming Facial Toner in the PM or vice versa.

      I hope this is helpful.

I use this product at least once a day. I thought, toner--just helps thoroughly clean skin and unblock pores, right? Well, I was shocked into a new understanding. My skin was not just temporarily refined, but softened beyond belief, much clearer on the acne front, and blotchiness was greatly reduced. I believe it's because the products actually do work together even better than they work alone. Problem--some of Dr. P's stuff does smell fishy. This is one of them, but the smell in this one does dissapate eventually.
Get it!!!

While this stuff works well, I really find the smell to be quite terrible. I really dont know what is up with people saying cold plasma smells bad, because this stuff clearly takes the cake, I'm considering replacing it with the free Serum Prep I get with my autoshipments of cold plasma.

Comments about Firming Facial Toner:

I will definitely buy this again. After I use a face wipe and wash my face I use the toner and I can clearly see some dirt on the cotton ball after cleansing my face. This toner manages to clean my skin without drying or irritating my skin. The only thing I don't love about it is the faint fishy smell, thankfully the smell doesn't last long.

            It is an OK toner - no better than Dr. Hauschka or Elemis which I usually use. I have very sensitive skin and It is fine for that, but I waste toner every time I use it because too much comes out of the applicator and it is too runny. I even bought a better bottle for it, but I still have problems.
