      Normally I don't evaluate products but I have to say these products are great! I am a 62 year old woman and I have used one thing or another. Since my late 50's I have had more neck droop. I have only used this product for one week and love the results.

      • Q:

        If I use Wrinkle Recode serum in the AM and PM (also layer the SD Advanced over that) for wrinkles, how would I be able to incorporate a firming product. I do not want to layer too much product. Would you suggest using the Tightening serum before or after the Recode? Would I still use he SD Advanced cream, or just use the tightening serum in the AM and SD during the PM? Finally, knowing that I use the Recode, would it better to use the Tightening Serum or cream - I do NOT want pilling.

          A:

          Great question! Wrinkle Recode and SD Advanced are an excellent product combination. In order to include a firming product, we recommend using the Tightening Face Serum. Since it is thinnest, apply the Tightening Face Serum first, allow it to dry down completely, then Wrinkle Recode, also allowing it to dry down completely followed by SD Advanced. If for some reason you do experience some pilling (which you shouldn't but just in case), you could layer the two serums in the AM and the two wrinkle products in the PM.

      • Q:

        Could you please suggest which product(s) would help eliminate forehead creases and 11's between the eyes? I also have small wrinkles when I smile around my cheeks / sides of face. And if you could recommend the order in which to apply all the products. I tend to be dry but need to blot my skin a few hours after makeup application. I have recently tried the wrinkle reducing pair but dislike the greasiness of the products (however, would continue to use them if in time the effects are apparent). I do use Perricone's Cold Plasma and find that to be a staple I'd like to replace if you have a comparable product as well. Thank you in advance.

          A:

          For the forehead creases and 11s, we recommend Wrinkle Recode Line Transforming Melting Serum. Our clinicals show improvement in deep wrinkles in just 7 days! Our Advanced Retinol Collection contains a Day Treatment with SPF and Intensive Night Moisturizer which would also be great to add to customer an AM/PM regimen that will target your major skin aging concerns. Apply Wrinkle Recode by warming the product in your hands first before applying. All this product to dry down then apply the Day or Night Moisturizer on top.

          A:

          This sounds like a slight reaction to the NIA-114 technology. We would suggest backing off to only using the SD Advanced Intensive Concentrate at night, a light application. This will enable your skin to acclimate to the NIA-114 technology, as it is increases blood flow to the skin (which is good) but too quickly may cause redness or slight irritation. As you continue to use the products, gradually increase which ones you use and how much as well as how often (increase to twice a day) and the side effects should subside within 7-10 days as skin acclimates.

        Can you recommend a full regimen including this product? I have used the neck tightening cream before, but don't know what else to combine it with for the best effects/anti-aging regimen. Thanks!

        • Brand Expert

          A:

          If your sole concern is Tightening, you can build a full regimen within the Tighten & Lift Collection with the Tightening Face Serum, 360 Tightening Eye Serum and Tightening & Sculpting Face Cream (layered over). You can also include TL Advanced Tightening Neck Cream as well. Our other collections address other conditions - wrinkles, multiple signs of aging and can be used with the Tightening Face Serum also if you have those concerns.

      • Q:

        I applied this for the first time last night and experienced some redness on cheeks and neck. I am wondering if maybe it was because I had done a peel that morning. Would the peel have made my skin too sensitive to use the tightening serum that same night?

        1 answer

        • Brand Expert

          A:

          Yes, it likely is because the peel made your skin more sensitive. The patented NIA-114 molecule also increases blood flow, which can cause a flushing/redness sensation to skin upon initial use. It subsides within a week of continued use so stick with it!

      • Q:

        I am 59 and I really could use a facelift, but no surgery for me. I have a lot of facial sagging - nasolabial area, mouth and jowls. My neck could also use a lift. Targeting these sagging problems is a priority, but I also have vertical lip lines (perioral lines) that I HATE. What products would you recommend for me. Thanks!

        • Brand Expert

          A:

          For your skin concerns, we'd definitely recommend pairing our Tightening Face Serum with our Tightening Face Cream. For your lip/perioral lines, we recommend our High Potency Wrinkle Filler which was specifically designed to target that area. For your neck, if you need deep hydration we recommend our Advanced Tightening Neck Cream or if you prefer a lighter, gel texture, we recommend our Advanced Light Tightening Neck Cream which you can find here: http://www.ulta.com/tl-advanced-light-tightening-neck-cream?productId=xlsImpprod14631099

          This product will provide instant toning & tightening appearance but with continued and consistent use, it will actually help with long term effects of fortifying the skin and restoring elasticity as it firms and sculpts facial contours.

          A:

          Hi Susan,
          StriVectin SD (Advanced Intensive Concentrate) actually serves as a moisturizer. If you feel that your skin needs more hydration after that step and before makeup, you can apply our Repair & Protect Moisturizer SPF 30 which will not only hydrate and provide you sun protection but also prime your face for makeup.
