J-E-L-L-O®

The dermis is like a Jello® mold strewn with pretzel sticks. Yes, a food analogy for the architecture of this all-important structural portion of our skin.

The pretzel sticks represent collagen fibers. These strong little strands hold up the skin like a tent pole. As we age, the skin loses 1% of its collagen fibers each year after the age of 40. This is why fine wrinkle lines appear.

Collagen fibers don’t exist in a vacuum, though. They live within the Jello® of the Jello® mold. Here, other important structures such as blood vessels, nerve endings and oil glands, amongst others, reside. What no one talks about is that as we age, the Jello of the Jello® mold begins to “melt”. This is why the face “falls”, deep crease lines develop (especially on the lower face) and jowls form.

Cosmetic surgery buzz words today are “lift” and “volume”. Rather than pulling the face tight in wind tunnel-like appearance reminiscent of the old fashioned face lift, injectable fillers are used to lift and revolumize sagging cheeks, nasolabial folds and marionette lines.

DERMAdoctor Wrinkle Revenge Serum fosters the “Jello®’s” overall health and structure, encouraging lift and volume of the aging face. Paired with a collagen builder such as Photodynamic Therapy, the pretzel Jello mold is complete, the face refreshed and a healthy appearance restored.

  • What do you recommend as a daily regime for day and night? There are so many products. How do you know which ones you should use and how to use them together to achieve the best results? I am 44 years old with combination skin. I also have rosacea but it has been under control for several years now - no meds. I have a few crows feet around my eyes and I am bothered by the beginning of turkey neck under my chin. I recently purchased 3 of your products - the serum, the wrinkle revenge moisturizer and eye cream. I love the way they make my skin feel, but at night, I'm not sure that I'm doing enough. My skin feels a bit dry.
    I would really be interested in the recommended - complete regime - both day and night.
    Thank you - Kelley
