Avage is a product from Allergan, a global health care company that provides a variety of treatment options in the fields of eye care, neurosciences, urology, obesity, aesthetics and medical dermatology. Avage is available by prescription only, so you will need to talk to your doctor or dermatologist to find out if this product is right for you. However, we will look at the characteristics and ingredients in Avage to determine whether the product will be able to follow through on its anti-aging claims.

Avage is touted on the Allergan website as a topical treatment for fine wrinkling, hypo- and hyperpigmentation and benign lentigines, which are flat patches of color on the skin. The website also states that this product will not be effective on deep lines and wrinkles, and will not be able to repair sun damage or restore a more youthful appearance to the user’s complexion. It is recommended that this product be used with a complete skin care program and sunlight avoidance to maximize the benefits. While the website does provide information in regards to research and clinical trials, we were unable to find customer testimonials for Avage.

Product Details

The main ingredient in Avage is tazarotene, which is a substance with similar properties to vitamin A. the main function of this ingredient is to allow the skin to renew itself more quickly and effectively, and there is the possibility that it will improve the overall look and texture of the skin. However, we were unable to find evidence that this ingredient is particularly effective against wrinkling. Because it is similar to vitamin A, it can make your skin more sensitive to the sun. Make sure that you use a sunscreen at all times when you are using the Avage cream.

There are also warnings about the use of Avage cream. If you are pregnant, tazarotene can harm the unborn baby. Some doctors will require women to take a pregnancy test before beginning use of this product, and may encourage patients to use birth control during the time that Avage is in use. Other possible side effects of this medication include peeling, redness, burning, drying and irritation. If you experience any of these side effects, you are advised to discontinue use and call your doctor. In rare instances, serious allergies can occur that require prompt medical attention.

The Good

  • Tazarotene has been proven to effectively treat pigmentation issues and fine lines.

The Bad

  • This product is prescription only.
  • There are potentially serious side effects from use of Avage.
  • Avage has not been proven to diminish deep lines and wrinkles and will not result in younger looking skin.
  • The product may be expensive if it is not covered by insurance.

The Bottom Line

For some, skin care under a doctor’s supervision is the right way to go. If you have age spots or another pigmentation issue that really bothers you, you could do worse than ask your dermatologist about Avage. For others, there are many good anti-aging products found over the counter that can offer the results that you desire, especially if pigmentation is not a concern of yours. Your best bet is to talk to your doctor about whether Avage is the right choice for you.

Top Wrinkle Cream for 2014: Revivasol

Editor's Review: 4.9 / 5.0

After looking at literally hundreds of wrinkle reduction and prevention treatments, Revivasol is our top choice. This product offers customers a Risk-Free Trial, and makes sure to both repair and protect the skin without using harmful chemicals like paragons or fragrances. No other formula that we've seen takes such a holistic approach to skin care. By recommending lifestyle changes like diet and exercise, Revivasol has firmly placed their customers health first. We never see skin care companies doing this sort of marketing. In addition, scientifically-proven results on how the formula works says it all, and the Revivasol website provides ample proof. When you factor in the trial offer, the potent formula, and the clinical studies posted on the official site, it's easy to see why Revivasol is our top anti-aging pick. >> Read more about Revivasol Go
