I love SkinPro. Having used their EliteSerum RX for two and one half months, I can tell you that my eyes look MUCH better. I have those Miami, Florida wrinkles and at 63, I hate them. I hate botox. I hate anything that isn’t natural. So when SkinPro asked me to try their new DNA Serum, I felt delighted.
After an entire month, I can say that DNA Serum works for me. The applicator allows only one dose for application, due to a new packaging system developed by SkinPro. This means that the serum has lasted me for a month – and I have lots more in the applicator. No spills, no wasted liquid. This dime size application goes under the eye and over the browline. I use it morning and evening. I could use lots of adjectives and oohs and aahs in this review; however, for me, skin care means only several things. 1) does it work? 2) Is it easy to apply? 3) Can I apply it in seconds because my mornings are busy? If a product meets these criteria, I will endorse it. If it doesn’t I won’t review it. On the SkinPro website, there is extensive information on the scientifics behind DNA Serum and their other skin line products. I will include these for those who like to research their products, as they should. Let’s face it, readers, there are so many companies and products out there, they are all expensive, and if you are like me, I am on a tight budget. I want the best products, and I want the products TO WORK.
“Dr. Ahmet Altiner, Assistant Professor of Clinical Dermatology at CornellUniversity, had this to say about DNA Serum:
“Biologically, the active ingredients make sense. The small peptides would penetrate the skin locally and work on the muscle level to weaken/ relax those areas. Since most wrinkles lines on the upper 1/3 of the face are due to expression (frown lines, crows feet etc), it would be a targeted therapy; mimicking (to a certain extent) botulinum toxin and other neurotoxins that are widely used in dermatologists’ offices.”
Scientifically designed and laboratory formulated, use of DNA Serum is intended to significantly reduce the appearance wrinkles and drastically improve skin firmness and elasticity.
Created with a special proprietary blend of four clinically proven precursor pool peptides, DNA Serum is designed to lift and firm the skin around the eyes, where an injection can not reach.
The newly released DNA Serum utilizes a revolutionary anti-wrinkle peptide derived from the venom of the TempleViper. When used regularly, this non-invasive formulation is intended to significantly lessen expression lines, as well as providing instantly noticeable results. The active ingredients included in our DNA Serum formula by our in-house cosmeceutical pharmacists include:
- Syn®-Ake is a small peptide that mimics the actions of Temple Viper Venom and has been called the new Botox without a needle. This revolutionary tri-peptide contains a protein, Walgerlin-1, which targets the neuromuscular activity which causes wrinkles. Syn®-Ake works topically and can be used daily as compared to Botox.
- Leuphasyl® , developed by world class research partner Lipotec, mimics the natural mechanism of enkephalins: it couples to the enkephalin receptor, on the outside of the nerve cells. When Leuphasyl couples to the receptor, the nerve cell’s activity is “turned down” and the release of acetylcholine is changed. Muscle contraction will be relaxed and expression wrinkles are diminished.
- Argireline® is a peptide (formerly named acetyl hexapeptide-3, now acetyl hexapeptide-8) that inhibits SNARE complex formation and catecholamine release, resulting in the reduction of the degree of existing facial wrinkles and demonstrated effectiveness against their development with regular use. In clinical studies of twice-a-day treatment, the severity of wrinkles around the eyes decreased up to 17% after 15 days and 27% following 30 days of treatment.
- Eyeseryl® is a tetrapeptide with anti-edema properties with proven efficacy in reducing puffy eyebags in as little as 15 days. It can be incorporated in cosmetic formulations such as gels, serums, and emulsions where a reduction of puffiness under the eyes is desired.”
I love SkinPro!
