Since the beginning of skin care commercials and print ads, anyone with skin was bombarded with messages from over-the-counter brands that have lead them to believe that the only way to reduce fine lines and wrinkles was with their anti-wrinkle cream. That same message is being circulated except with Instagram Stories and automated emails.
While some choose to believe over-the-counter company’s anti-wrinkle creams are 100% effective, the Mayo clinic suggests otherwise. “Over-the-counter (nonprescription) wrinkle creams aren’t classified as drugs, they’re not required to undergo scientific research to prove their effectiveness.” Further exploration of this claim, one study supports that the efficacy and ingredients of these anti-aging creams lacks rigorous testing in comparison to their anti-aging claims.
That leaves room for imagination. Is the cream 2%, 55%, or 99% effective? These over-the-counter anti-wrinkle creams hardly ever specify how effective their product is. Without any fancy percentages, how can these creams be trusted to reduce wrinkles?
Sure these creams can work, but their “effectiveness” is no match for LED light therapy for wrinkles. Since our devices are FDA cleared, we performed a clinic study with our anti-aging devices and found that 97% of users experienced a reduction of wrinkles.
You read that right, 97% of users saw improvement (or lack there of) in their wrinkles. Here’s what came out of the clinical trial in addition to reduced wrinkles:
- Minimized skin discoloration and age spots
- Enhanced complexion
- Reduced puffy eyes
- Improved skin tone and texture
- Stimulated collage and elastin to promote youthful looking skin
Can your over-the-counter anti-wrinkle cream do that? In 12 weeks, LED light therapy will stimulate your collagen to give your appearance a reduced fine line and wrinkle-free look. Put our devices to the test and shop our anti-aging line and toss out those false-promised creams. Your reduced wrinkled skin can thank us later.
