Do Anti-Aging Products Actually Work?

Take one look around the makeup & skincare department at a department store, or even at your local drugstore, and you’ll see all kinds of anti-aging products with miraculous claims. You’ll see everything from Kiehl’s ‘Powerful Wrinkle-Reducing Cream’, to Lancôme’s ‘Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate Serum’, to Neutrogena’s ‘Rapid Wrinkle Repair Cream’. Naturally, we want to believe these claims and we’ll buy these products “just in case.”

Cosmeceuticals & Miraculous Claims

The fact of the matter is, these products are often unsubstantiated by medical research, but customers don’t necessarily know that. Furthermore, these anti-aging products and their claims can be deceiving because they often sound like real medical treatments, when they are really only cosmetics. The trouble is, consumers take these claims at face value, and they will pay hundreds—even thousands—of dollars to get their hands on the latest fountain of youth products. In fact, the Food and Drug Administration recently stated, “FDA is concerned about drug claims made for products marketed as cosmetics, such as skin care products with anti-wrinkle or anti-aging claims that involve supposed effects on the structure or function of the skin.”

Anti-Aging Treatments—The Verdict

The moral of the story is, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. For real wrinkle treatment that works, you just have to visit your dermatologist to explore professional options such as those from Truly effective wrinkle-reducing and anti-aging treatments include anti-aging dermal fillers; botox injections such as Botox in Cary, NC or Botox injectables in LA; Cosmetic; Dysport; and Juvéderm Injectable Gel. Dermal fillers like dermal fillers – Glam Aesthetics Medspa can help combat skin aging by reducing fine lines and increasing skin volume. That’s not to say that these skincare products aren’t good for you—in fact, we highly recommend using a daily moisturizer, especially one with sunscreen.
