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.

    I have fairly sensitive skin and am in my late twenties, I am using this more as a preventative measure. Will this be OK for my skin? If not what would you recommend for that?

      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 tried to like High Potency Face Firming Activator, I really did. I usually use the High Potency Amine Face Lift, but decided to give the Activator a chance. Ugh. I am running back to the Amine Face Lift. That product blended well into my skin. This one lays on top like an oil slick. No matter how much I pat or run it in, I have a greasy shine over my whole face, and when I pat my skin, it feels tacky. If you try to layer a sunscreen and then a foundation on top of this, you end up with a totally shiny face. I wished I'd returned it right away.

        Comments about High Potency Face Firming Activator:

        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

            I had some deep bumps on my cheeks and fairly large pores, I was starting to see lines on my forehead and my skin was overall dull. At first use my skin started to become more radiant! Over a few weeks my pores appeared smaller and my skin texture was smoother! It has made the bumps on my cheeks disappear and the lines on my forehead are much smoother! I will not go a Day with out this product! I use it every day before I leave the house!!!

                Comments about High Potency Face Firming Activator:

                It's always a surprise which products are going to stink and which aren't. I got this High Potency Face Firming Activator on a GMA promo for a good price. I hadn't tried it before and anything that might help firming for me is desirable. The first few times I used it, I kept smelling something sort of like garbage or like skunky body odor. I was horrified that maybe it was my armpits. But no. It was my face. I've tried using a more fragranced moisturizer over it but it just leaches through. And if I'm in the sun for even an instant, it really amps up the smell! It hasn't shown me any tremendous benefits so I won't subject myself to the smell again. I have noticed my pores are much smaller. My wrinkles may be too advanced for any real noticeable difference. I did notice a tiny improvement in firmness of my dreaded waddle. It does make my neck skin incredibly smooth - if only it could dissolve turkey neck LOL
                I think it's a decent enough product for finer lines. If you want to minimize pores it seems to work on those. If you can ignore the smell, then I think it's worth a try.
