Additional Information

Product Details

What It Is

High Potency Face Firming Activator, previously available only through dermatologists, is designed with the highest potency active ingredients to minimize the length, depth and width of a wrinkle while delivering a luminous, vibrant, fresh complexion. Alpha lipoic acid is a powerful and water-soluble antioxidant that helps to increase levels of other antioxidants in the skin. It improves the appearance of the depth of a wrinkle by addressing micro-scars. DMAE tackles the length and width of a wrinkle by lifting and firming the look of skin. It works synergistically with Alpha Lipoic Acid—both proprietary to Perricone MD— and the NTP Complex Delivery System works to ensures optimal results by driving actives deep within the skin.

What It Does
  • Minimizes the appearance of the length, width and depth of a wrinkle.
  • Refines the look of enlarged pores.
  • Improves the appearance of skin texture while imparting radiance and glow.

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.

Vitamin C Ester

A more potent, highly stable and less irritating form of antioxidant-rich Vitamin C, Vitamin C Ester gives the appearance of collagen-rich skin by visibly smoothing, brightening and minimizing discoloration over time. Unlike traditional Vitamin C, Vitamin C Ester is fat-soluble and easily absorbable for maximum antioxidant benefits.

      Hi there.
      We might suggest you start with Cold Plasma - especially as you state your skin is a bit on the sensitive side..

      Cold Plasma represents Dr. Perricone's most comprehensive research to date and is the result of five years of development. Formulated with Dr. Perricone's proprietary delivery system, Cold Plasma offers the skin all it needs for optimal health, while helping address the ten visible signs of aging: wrinkles, enlarged pores, dryness, redness, discoloration, uneven skin tone, impurities, loss of firmness, loss of smoothness, and loss of radiance.
      For your concern - wanting to hold-off the aging process..

I've used this serum for two months and I have seen no positive result. To be honest, after years of working for plastic surgeons, I don't believe any skincare product that says it will firm my skin. It's not physically possible to achieve the tightening effect that the word "firming" makes me hope for. That said, I expect smoother texture and a more even skin tone. A slightly more supple, "plumped" feel is a bonus. I've gotten those results with serums at higher and lower price points.

The serum has an unpleasantly strong herbal/essential oil scent, but it fades quickly, so that wasn't a barrier to using it. It takes a couple minutes to dry before I can apply a moisturizer. That's okay too. It didn' make me break out.

I don't want to be one of those women who just says something vague about a product not working, but that's the extent of it: no better, no worse. With the amazingly effective ingredients available today and the cachet of the Perricone brand, that is not good enough. I put in the money, the time and the hope for a realistic improvement that isn't easy to achieve but is possible. It didn't deliver on any promise. I'm a completionist so I'll finish it, but I will not buy it again.

                    I have been using High Potency Face Firming Activator (it called back then Formula15) ever since I was introduced to Perricone MD April 2014. From day one I could see the change. I was 45 and looked old (usually i look 25, so it was a real blow and needed a quick change): my face started going down, pigmentation everywhere...in less than a month, my face was on its way back to the way it was. I am using Perricone MD cleanser, firmer cold plasma (currently moved to Cold Plasma plus) and then High Potency Face Firming Activator Always finish with Photo Plasma morning or Face Finishing Moisturizer at night. High Potency Face Firming Activator - smells great, well absorbed and does the work - keep my face moisturized, helps a great deal with lowering pigmentation and acne level - Highly recommended
