Dr. Murad is well known in the skin care industry. He was voted by Vogue as one of the best dermatologists in the country, and is the author of “Wrinkle-Free Forever” and “The Cellulite Solution”.
Intensive Wrinkle Reducer originally debuted at the People’s Choice Awards in Los Angeles, and since then has become a hot product.
It is part of his Age Reform Intensives collection, which is his most advanced treatment collection for reversing the visible signs of aging.
How it works:
Intensive Wrinkle Reducer focuses on three factors of aging skin:
- Improving collagen production, as we lose collagen when we age.
- Increasing nutrients necessary for glycosaminoglycans (which contribute to skin density, volume, and hydration) to flourish in your skin, as they also diminish with age.
- Provides intense resurfacing of dead skin cells, as dead skin cells do not slough off our skin as frequently when we get older.
Clinical and independent test studies:
Clinical testing was done at Murad Research Labs, with eleven women between the ages of 40 and 60. The women had fine lines and wrinkles, dry skin and dull skin tone. Here are the results:
Fine lines and wrinkles: Up to a 45% reduction after 8 weeks
Skin firmness: Up to a 40% improvement within 10 minutes of application
Skin hydration: Up to a 37% increase after 8 weeks
Skin tone: Up to a 25% improvement after 8 weeks
We do think 11 women isn’t a big number for a test, however, its nice to see independent testing was also done on these factors by Barnett Products Corporation, which showed improvements in all these areas as well.
In their testing, they found a 33% reduction in appearance of fine lines and wrinkles after 4 weeks, and a 55% reduction after 12 weeks. After four weeks, they found a 44% improvement in hydration and a 45% improvement in skin smoothness.
GlycoNutrient Complex (which consists of Glycosaminoglycans, Glucosamine, marine-derived Polysaccharides, Linoleic Acid and Glycolic Acid)– to smooth appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and increase the firmness of your skin. It provides intense resurfacing without irritation.
Durian Cell Reform (their proprietary blend of durian and glycolic acid)– helps the penetration of GlycoNutrient Complex, and provides anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory protection.
Glucosamine – for increased production of hyaluronic acid to help skin keep hydrated.
Lipo Amino Acid – helps improve imperfections such as age spots, discoloration and rough texture.
We like that this is not just a quick fix, but the results keep improving with use.
In addition to fighting against wrinkles, this product works to increase your skin’s radiance, boost hydration levels, improve your skins imperfections and firm and tighten your skin.
In addition to the ingredients mentioned above, it has several great anti-oxidants, water-binding agents, and anti-irritants.
The one evident downside we see in this great product is that it contains fragrance components that can be irritating to the skin. Cinnamon bark, although having anti-oxidant properties, can also be irritating to the skin.
