Advanced Dermatology Review

Our skin is one of the body features that can give an estimate of our age just from appearance. Aging is demonstrated by among other things wrinkles, blackheads, adult acne, age spots, and discoloration.

Advanced Dermatology is a company specializing in the production of skin care products and services. The products became an instant hit upon launch necessitating commercialization.

As the term Advanced Dermatology implies, it is supposed to be a new form of treatment. Advertisemets show it as a powerful skin care product system used to curb aging signs.

Currently, little information is available about the developers of the product. Consumers have not posted a lot of reviews on the website. Marketing speech occupies most of the space.

The marketers claim it is a skincare system which "remakes" your skin and "restores" the natural beauty. It is one of the treatment options which can successfully replace cosmetic surgery. The regimen changes the skin structure by penetrating to the deepest parts resulting in skin self-lifting mechanism.

Your skin creates more collagen reducing the rate at which it loses elasticity. Does is it sound authentic? Not at all to many experts.

The products are recommended for application to all skin areas, but you will mostly emphasize on the neck and face. The main parts to focus on are around your mouth, under the jaw, crow's feet and across the forehead.

Editor's note:- In my opinion, a better collagen regenerating cream that works to remove wrinkles both instantly and in the long term is LifeCell. Read more on comparison of LifeCell vs. Instantly Ageless.

In addition to water-binding agents, antioxidants, and anti-irritants, LifeCell contains the following active ingredients:

  • Dithiolane-3-Pentanoic Acid
  • Ascorbyl Palmitate
  • Deanol (DMAE): Firms sagging skin
  • Acetyl Hexapeptide-3 (AH3): Blocks neurotransmitters that cause facial muscles to contract
  • Fractionated Silicon Dioxide: When processed, this ingredient turns into billions of microscopic 3D nanoprisms that refract light

Advanced Dermatology Products

Advanced Dermatology brand has several products that you can use. They include;

  • a) Anti-Wrinkle Firming Night Treatment
  • b) Deep Cellular Regeneration
  • c) Cream Daily Renew Cleanser
  • d) Super Youth Serum
  • e) Complete Age Defense Day Cream

Their website has some information on the products and ingredients. The products have active ingredients such as biomimetric, cellular growth promoters and stem cells which stimulate the elastin, keratin and collagen levels. Antioxidants and vitamins get rid of free radicals and guard your skin against harsh weather conditions.

Like Botox, they reduce fine lines by refreshing metabolism in your cells. Phospholipids combine with oligosaccharides and polysaccharides to feed, hydrate and protect the face. The various layers composing the skin receive the required growth nutrients. And like any living cell which is well fed, your skin revitalizes and lights up.

Aging makes the skin lose its original color. Encapsulated Retinaldehyde in collaboration with other brightening promoters helps in bringing back the earlier look. Besides, 20 other active ingredients take part in protection against diseases and aging.

However, it is good to note as earlier stated the "Advanced Dermatology" website lacks necessary evidence of how the products work. It has been out of the sale for long to enable proper verification of their claims. The manufacturers have not given a list of the ingredients for each of the products drawing more suspicion. Consumers should have more information availed to be sure of the product they are using.

1.) Daily Renew Cleanser ingredients


Ingredients:

  • Aqua
  • Glycerin
  • Sodium Olivate
  • Rosa Rubiginosa seed oil
  • Aspalathus linearis extract
  • Ariobotrya japonica extract
  • Organic Urtica dioica extract
  • Chondrus Crispus Extract
  • Organic Camellia Sinensis Extract
  • Organic Aphanizomenon floas aquae Extract
  • Organic Stellaria media extract
  • Organic Ulmus rubras extract
  • Organic Silybum Marianum Extract
  • Organic althaea officialis extract
  • Avena Sativa Extract
  • Chamomilla Recutita Flower Extract
  • Citrus medica Limonum peel oil
  • Helianthus Annuus seel oil
  • Citrus paradise seed oil
  • Sodium PCA
  • Urea
  • Polyquaternium-51
  • Trehalose
  • Hexylene glycol
  • Capryloyl glycol
  • Sodium Hyaluronate

Daily cleanser is a cream composed of plant extracts and some oils. Among these, the ingredients we find good are Rosa rubiginosa seed oil and rosehip seed oil, and emulsifiers combined with sodium olivate. They are gentle and seem to care for the skin. All are common ingredients which you did not expect to miss from a famous formulation, but they are not present in the cream. Grapefruit seed oil and Capryllyl glycol have been used as preservatives instead.

Of all the cleansers in the market, it is one of the best. It has a gentle texture which makes your skin soft. The combination of plant extracts and several actives remain on the skin after cleansing. Together they help to enhance the activity of other actives deficient products.

2.) Super youth serum

Ingredients:

  • Aqua,
  • Dimethicone /Vinyl Dimethicone crosspolymer
  • Glycerin
  • Cyclomethicone
  • Tetradecyl Aminobutyroylvalylaminobutyric Urea trifluoroacetate
  • Palmitoyl dipeptide-5 diaminobutyroyl hydroxythreonine
  • Palmitoyl tripeptide-5
  • Hyaluronic acid
  • Sodium PCA
  • Urea
  • Trehalose
  • Hexylene glycol
  • Polyquaternium-51
  • Triacetin
  • Caprylyl Glycol
  • Sodium polyacrylate
  • Xanthan Gum
  • Ethyhexylglycerin
  • Rhododendron ferrugineum leaf cell culture extract
  • Isomalt
  • Lecithin
  • Sodium benzoate
  • Lactic acid
  • Phenoxyethanol

The serum has a light texture and is applied on the face after the cleanser. It has numerous actives. Tetra decyl Aminobutyroylvalylaminobutyric Urea Trifluoroacetate going by the trade name Syn-hycan is a synthetic tripeptide. It promotes the production of hyaluronic acid.

Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 boosts generation of collagen. Palmitoyl dipeptide-5 diaminobutyroyl hydroxythreonine encourages the production of laminin and integrin (both are proteins) that maintain dermis. Lastly, rhododendron ferrugineum leaf cell culture extract that is obtained from alpine rose leaves improves skin regeneration.

Parabens were also not used; they were replaced with phenoxyethanol, sodium benzoate and ethylhexylglycerin. It would have been better if the serum wasn't silicone based silicone it builds up on the skin causing breakouts.

Looking at the ingredients above, I believe that LifeCell has a more powerful product formula containing peptides and other wrinkle reducing ingredients.

3). Complete Age Defense Day Cream-

Ingredients:

  • Aqua
  • Simmondsia Chinensis Seed oil
  • Prunus Armeniaca Kernel Oil
  • Squalane
  • Hyaluronic acid
  • Enteromorpha Compressa Extract
  • Palmaria palmata extract
  • Ascophyllum nodosum Extract
  • Sorbitol, Laureth-7, C13-14 isoparraffin
  • Polyacrylamide
  • Argan oil
  • Leontopodium Alpinum Extract
  • Resveratrolol
  • Phenoxyethanol
  • ethylhexylglycer

Algae play a great role in protecting the skin against environmental pollutants. Edelweiss flower extract and resveratrol possess antioxidant properties.

The preservative Laureth-7, C13-14 isoparaffin, Polyacrylamide is a common feature in natural cosmetics. Incorporation of vitamin C and mineral sunscreen though would have enhanced protection while interchanging water with aloe vera would have brought the much-needed soothing and skin hydration.

4). Deep Cellular Regeneration Cream-

Ingredients:

  • Aqua
  • Caprylic Capric Triglyceride
  • Glycerin
  • Cetearyl Alcohol
  • Cyclopentasiloxane
  • Dimethicone
  • Isopropyl Myristate
  • Citrus Aurantium Dulcis Callus Culture Extract
  • Xanthan Gum
  • Sodium Benzoate
  • Gluconolactone
  • Calcium Gluconolactone
  • Calcium Gluconate
  • Hyaluronic Acid
  • Polysorbate 60
  • Squalane
  • Phenoxyethanol
  • Ethylhexylglycerin

The cream is heavier when compared to day cream but is easier to apply. Instead of high-quality oils, cheaper replacements alternatives such as isopropyl myristate, caprylic, capric triglyceride were used. Although they increase spread ability, the addition of oils of higher quality oils would have been better. The absence of natural vegetable oils in oil phase for skin revitalization and more actives was a huge disappointment.

I feel the product cannot have deep cellular regeneration effect. The formulation does not contain required ingredients. I would recommend LifeCell for better performing ingredients.

5). Anti Wrinkle Firming Night Treatment-

Ingredients:

  • Chondrus Crispus Extract
  • Aqua
  • Acetyl Tetrapeptide-2
  • Hyaluronic Acid
  • Glycerin
  • Sodium Pca
  • Urea, Trehalose
  • Hexylene Glycol
  • Polyquaternium -51
  • Triacetin
  • Caprylyl Glycol
  • Ethylglycerin
  • Phenoxyethanol

It is a gel with carrageenan which provides gel base and hyaluronic acid to hydrate the skin. The gel is sticky and lacks actives.

Ingredients only make it suitable for hydration, not anti wrinkle purpose. Just like the serum, cream, and cleanser, it does not have parabens.

Lack of more active ingredients decreases the effectiveness of the treatment. Vitamin C and several powerful peptides would have addressed the inadequacies.

6). Youthful Boost Eye Cream

Ingredients:

  • Aqua
  • Simmondsia Chinensis Seed oil
  • Prunus Armeniaca Kernel Oil
  • Squalane, Hyaluronic Acid
  • Phytonadione
  • Arnica Montana Extract
  • Oxido Reductases
  • Glycine Soja Protein
  • Hydrolyzed Rice Bran Protein
  • Laureth-7, C13- 14 Isoparaffin
  • Polyacrylamide
  • Glycerin
  • Sodium PCA
  • Urea
  • Trehalose
  • Hexylene Glycol
  • Polyquaternium-51
  • Triacetin
  • Caprylyl Glycol
  • Eriobotrya Japonica Extract
  • Steareth-20
  • Hydroxysuccinimide
  • Chrysin
  • Palmitoyl Oligopeptide
  • Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide 7
  • Phenoxyethanol
  • Ethylhexylglycerin

Arnica Montana possesses soothing and anti-inflammatory effects that treat eye bags. Hydroxysuccinimide fights dark circles though it irritates the eyes slightly. Matrixyl 3000 is a combination of two powerful peptides which can eliminate wrinkles.

What is the cost?

Initially, they issue a 30-day trial kit from which you can either choose a 6-piece with or 5-piece kit without Youthful Boost eye for $79.95 and $59.95 respectively

Replenishment Program if you wish to continue, a 90-day kit for which you either pay $59.95 or $79.95 depending on your choice Both trial and Replenishment Programs kits are good. You can order the kit of your choice. Most of the products perform well and are cheaper than some brands out there in the market. Many would have expected the 90 day supply to be triple the 30 day supply. No, it is not the case. The 30-day trial kit costing $59.95 or $79.95 contains 50 ml cleanser and 15 ml for the remaining regimen and 7.5 ml of Eye Cream.

Customers are expected to pay either $179.85 (59.95 x) or $239.85 (79.95 x3) for the 90 day kit. Commonly, the price decreases with increase in the amount of product which is not the case. Other competing brands cost reduces as weight increases. Advanced Dermatology has more active ingredients which compensate adequately for the high price. Also, other renowned brands are more expensive. Although some products perform better than others, it is quite hard to propose the best.

Another challenging scenario is that you can't buy any product individually. The two kits are meant to be used as a combination since they rely on each other to be effective. You either purchase everything or leave the regimen.

Cost and composition of the two kits are confusing. Compared to the 30-day kit, 90-day kit is stronger but with unexpectedly higher cost. That is quite uncalled for and against best practices. In fact, it could drive away some customers.

Advanced Dermatology products would be better off if more active ingredients are added and the quantity of the 90-day supply is increased without price rise. I would recommend the products if they incorporated the changes. However, there are better brands in the market offering better solutions and higher amounts of active ingredients. Alternatives also offer better prices in the long term.

Bottomline :- Is it an excellent skin care treatment?

Most likely it was 5-10 years ago, but the presence of new well-formulated brands beats it. I would advise you to purchase LifeCell or a microdermabrasion machine instead.
