Ingredients

DMAE: Instant Firming

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.

Neuropeptides: Uniting Surface Cells to Fight Wrinkles

Powerful, protein-like building blocks offer the ultimate visible antidote to wrinkles, sagging, dullness, and discoloration. Neuropeptides encourage surface skin cells to work together via a unique chemical structure.

Ingredients

Aqua (Water), Dimethyl MEA (DMAE), Diglycerin, Butylene Glycol, Glycolic Acid, Magnesium Aspartate, Zinc Gluconate, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Phosphatidylcholine, Copper Gluconate, Parfum (Fragrance), Sorbic Acid, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Cetyl Hydroxyethylcellulose, Benzyl Benzoate, Rutin, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide (Neuropeptide), Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 (Neuropeptide), Phaseolus Lunatus (Green Bean) Extract.

Q&A

Is it suppose to smell horrible ? It smells like raw fish ? I bought this product but the smell is the concern. Is it normal ?

Valp

Perricone MD products are formulated with the highest quality ingredients, some having natural medicinal scents. Serum Prep contains a high amount of the firming antioxidant DMAE from a marine algae. After application we recommend you allow your skin to try, and the scent should dissipate.

Eileen

I would like know how to check cosmetics' date?that serum date is HD93195A,May I use?

Ying

We completely understand you were provided this information in the past, but due to changes in our process, we are no longer are able to decipher the date from those internal manufacturing codes. If you had purchased recently from us or authorized reseller of ours, the product would be well within the window of maximum quality and efficacy. If you bought it from an authorized seller within the last 2 years it should be fine.

Eileen

I just recently received serum prep with my order because I want to try it. My question is I am using the firming pads. Can I use both together? And if yes what order is best? Thanks!

Krissy the happy customer

Great question. Yes you can use them together or use one during the day and one at night. If you are going to use them together I would first use the DMAE pads, smooth over entire face and neck to tone, tighten and gently exfoliate and then tap the Serum Prep on top. Enjoy!

Perricone MD Skincare Specialist

if i am using Blue Plasma at night, do i apply a serum afterwards on top?

Christina

Great question! The Serum Prep should be applied before the Blue Plasma, followed by your favorite Perricone treatment and a moisturizer should always follow last. Have a nice day!

Perricone MD Customer Care Specialist

Do i use the Serum Prep after the firm facial toner or instead of the firm facial toner?

Mela

Great question! There are five steps to following the Perricone regime and they are: 1a. Cleanser 1b. Treatment Mask 2. Toner or Serum 3. Exfoliant 4. Treatment 5. Moisturizer If you have both the Serum Prep and the Firming Facial Toner it is not necessary to layer them; I would recommend alternating, use one in the AM and the other in the PM. Have a nice day!

What is the percentage of glycolic acid in this product?

Ghotsibi

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!

Hi, I just ordered the acyl-glutathione cream and received a sample bottle of the serum prep. Should I use the serum prep before the acyl-glutathione? I was planning to try the acyl-glutathione serum. Would this be better paired with the acyl-glutathione cream? Thanks!

GC

Great question! These 2 serums address different concerns: The Acyl-Glutathione Deep Crease Serum is recommended for deep lines, creases and wrinkles. The Serum Prep is recommended for tightening, toning and firming the skin. Depending on your skin concerns you will be able to determine which serum will best meet your needs; and they both can be used in combination with all of Dr. Perricone's treatments including the Acyl-Glutathione cream. Have a nice day!

Perricone MD Customer Care Specialist

After I cleanse my face with Nutritive Cleanser, then apply Serum Prep, can I also apply Deep Crease Serum, then the Face finishing moisturizer?

Barb

Great question! That is absolutely correct. You see there are five steps to following the Perricone regime and they are: 1a. Cleanser 1b. Treatment Mask 2. Toner or Serum 3. Exfoliant 4. Treatment 5. Moisturizer I hope this is helpful.

Best skincare product EVER!

5

I have used the Serum Prep for over 11 years! I am 67 and everyone guesses that I am in my late 40s. That's due to the Serum Prep which I have used morning and evening every day without fail! It has kept my skin from sagging and has provided excellent hydration. It is the foundation of my skin care routine and make up preparation. It is terrible that this product will be discontinued! The outstanding performance of this product has been a best kept secret that should have been told. I just ordered 30 bottles!!!!!

It smells like its rotten. Horrible smell!

I used it the first time and the smell was so bad I thought maybe something was wrong, maybe I hadn't shaken it enough, just wasn't sure. I have used it several more times and the smell is just atrocious. It smells like something is rotten. I bought it on sale for half price and I would like to get my money back. It must have been on sale because of its problem. I use the Preempt series of Perricone twice a day and love those products. Not sure what happened with this product!

Imperative FIRST REGIMEN

I first tried this because of some other reviews and thought the idea of PREPPING the skin for further treatments of other products was a good first step. I used it for about a year and then ran out of it for a few months and I noticed my skin didn't look as good. So after beginning its use again, I again noticed it looked much smoother. It seems to allow the other products to absorb better. I follow with Skin Conformer and use these two products morning and night plus an eye area formula.

Serum Prep is the best product of its kind I've found so far and I'm always looking for something that feels right for my skin. I start with PERRICONE Nutritive Cleanser and then use the serum prep. My face feels clean and ready for whatever regimen follows. I've been using it for over a year and in spite of the price I'm not allowed to talk about here I love it.
