People have scars. But it’s the physical kind that they try to hide with make up and clothing.
To address this, there are scar reduction options, ranging from derma-brasion and laser surgery to steroids and filler injections that can flatten scars and make them less prominent.
Recently, the Skinception line of skin-care products has ventured into the market with a new product that capitalizes on their obviously considerable knowledge of natural active ingredients and patented peptides. Case in point, their anti-wrinkle cream, eye cream, anti-stretch mark cream and rosacea treatment.
Now Skinception offers Dermefface FX7 Scar Reduction Therapy to reduce or prevent scars and, as they claim, “fade scars like magic”. But does it deliver?
Dermefface employs natural active ingredients and moisturizers with patented peptides like their well-known Pro-Coll-One+. In that sense, you can consider Dermefface FX7 as a hybrid of natural skin care and modern skin technology.
Of the more prominent natural ingredients, in Dermefface FX7 you’ll encounter beta-glucan, bilberry and various fruit extracts. There’s also hydrolyzed soybean fiber and very notably, a biologically active form of vitamin B3 and darling of the natural skin brightening industry, niacinamide.
The beta glucan is an obvious choice because of its long history as an anti-irritant. But it’s also an effective moisturizer and proven to stimulate natural production of collagen. Beta glucan also promotes health of macrophages – the cells that destroy bacteria and remove dead or damaged skin cells.
Getting back to that Pro-Coll-One+, we shouldn’t forget that it’s clinically proven to stimulate collagen by up to 1,190%. Combine that with the Symglucan, Pentavitin and several other active ingredients and Dermefface FX7 has the goods to stimulate healthy human collagen fibroblasts, slough off dead skin cells and encourage normal, healthier skin cells to take their place.
A good set of ingredients is one thing, but it’s all for naught if they don’t work together and do what the manufacturer says it will do.
Fortunately, Dermefface FX7 comes with the Skinception name attached to its label, and as with most things Skinception, Dermefface delivers, in that it fades scars, according to the clients we’ve spoken with. And yes, it appears to work in as little as four weeks.
Dermefface FX7 markets itself as a treatment for both developing scars and those existing. Many clients using Dermefface use it for both of these reasons, and they’ve seen their scarring fade, though it tends to work better for a scar that’s still forming. It appears to work for existing scars as well, however, with visible reduction where people want it most.
The clients who’ve talked with us say they’re happy with the product – a non-greasy cream with a luxurious feel when applied to the skin.
The Skinception name offers plenty of value. As a general rule of thumb, the greatest savings with any Skinception product tend to be had with orders of three months or higher, often with gifts or extra product added as incentive to go long-term.
We think that’s wise, because skin problems like stretch marks and scarring aren’t fixed overnight. Skinception products show noticeable results in a reasonable amount of time, but the most dramatic improvements can take up to six months.
Skinception offers a one month supply of Dermefface at $59.95 . Not exactly a bargain, but when you consider the luxurious formulation of Skinception products, which most clients rave about, seems a reasonable purchase. This includes both a loofah and a microderm exfoliator.
As with most Skinception products, the best value is for a longer term commitment. The Gold Package is a three month supply of Dermefface, the two exfoliators and a $25 gift card to Natural Health Source. The cost? $129.95
