When it comes to beautiful people, there is one place in the world that sticks out: Beverly Hills. That is why a product line developed there by two prominent dermatologists has instant appeal. Alpha Max is the product created by Jeffery Marmelzat and Richard Salit, both MD’s and they claim to have done facial peels for some of the most beautiful people in the world. This peel was so popular with their clients they decided to make an at home version for everyone.
These creators of Alpha Max now live and work in New York with the Institute for Advanced skin care. The Alpha Max official site claims that the product was created with only the best ingredients and will increase skin tone, reduce fine lines, give you a healthy complexion, more radiant skin and even lighten dark spots from over exposure to the sun. There are only three products in the Alpha Max skin care line and the company suggests you purchase all three and save money.
In order to get the full benefit of the anti-aging and skin rejuvenation you need to use the three Alpha Max products together. These products are Alpha Max Weekly Intensive Exfoliate Pads, Alpha Max Antioxidant Moisturizer and Alpha Max Daily Renewal Lotion with SPF15.
The exfoliate pads from Alpha Max are soaked with hydroxyl acids; they basically “peel” the top layer of skin to reveal the healthy tissue beneath. The Alpha Max moisturizer was created to help prevent damage from free radicals to the skin, it does this by incorporating antioxidant vitamins like A, C and D. In addition, this moisturizer also contains various other plant extracts and essential oils. Finally, the Alpha Max renewal lotion has a mix of ingredients from the previous two products. It contains alpha hydroxyl acids, vitamins and plant extracts. This finishing lotion also offers a small amount of protection from the sun; the SPF15 is a mild blocker that will prevent some damage from the suns UV rays.

The Bottom Line
Alpha Max has definitely hit the mark on cost; if you are looking for an inexpensive facial peel product then $40 is a reasonable cost. There is no reason to believe this product has any ingredients that make it better than other competing products, the price for three separate products seems to be the defining factor. Of course, if you are looking for anti-aging products or more specifically wrinkle reducers you should know that facial peels are not generally the way to go. You would be better served with skin care products containing hyaluronic acid, collagen and other anti-aging agents. Facial peels are only good for an instant fix before an important engagement, not long-term wrinkle reduction.
