The Institut DERMed products originated in the DERMed spas located in Georgia. These spas market the products through the company website, which also advertises the DERMed spa services. In addition, consumers can find the products through a number of online retailers. The product line for DERMed is a long one that includes formulas to treat acne and cellulite, as well as products to treat the effects of aging. There are also products designed to lighten the skin and specific products that are gentle enough to be used on sensitive skin.

Within the DERMed aging line, we discovered eleven different products. This many choices can be confusing to some consumers, and it makes us wonder why a company needs to offer so many products for a single purpose. Many of the anti-aging products appear too focused on antioxidant protection and moisturizing functions, but we will look more closely at one formula to see if it truly can deliver what it promises. For the purpose of this review, we chose to study the A+ Retinol Complex because it claims to support collagen and elastin production while it smoothes out the appearance of fine lines.

Product Details

We were very disappointed to find that a complete ingredient list for the DERMed products did not appear to be available on the company website. Consumers should be savvy about the skin care products that they purchase, and this includes knowing every substance that is going on their skin. This way, consumers can determine for themselves whether the product will be truly effective and if there are any possible allergies to be concerned about.

We were able to locate a complete ingredient list for the DERMed products at the website of one online retailer. The list for the DERMed Retinol Complex includes Distilled Water, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Cetyl Alcohol, Retinol, Glycolic Acid Polymer, Cetearyl Alcohol, Albumin, Olive Oil, D-alpha-tocopherol, Aloe Vera, Almond Oil, Allantoin, L-alpha lecithin, Collagen, D-beta-fructan, D-beta-glucosamine, paprika extract, essential oils, methylparaben, propylparaben. We are happy to see collagen in the formula, since this substance can plump the skin and smooth the look of fine lines. However, we are concerned that retinol and glycolic acid are potential skin irritants, particularly when used together. You’d definitely want to stay out of the sun when using this DERMed product.

The Good

  • The DERMed Retinol Complex contains collagen.
  • The products originated in a professional spa.

The Bad

  • Some of the ingredients included may be potentially irritating for some skin types.
  • Proven wrinkle ingredients like matrixyl and argireline are absent from the formula.
  • The company does not provide a complete ingredient list on the products.

The Bottom Line

While we like to see spa products come up for review, we are not convinced that the DERMed aging line will provide enough oomph for your anti-aging dollar. We would recommend looking for products that contain proven ingredients like matrixyl and argireline for best results. Also, if you have sensitive skin, retinol-based products may not be appropriate 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



Vivexin

(Optional- For Enhanced Results): Vivexin

Editor's Review: 4.6 / 5.0

We've reviewed thousands of anti-aging eye treatments, and we've never seen anything quite like this! Vivexin is an anti-aging, eye treatment formulated to lighten dark circles, lessen the appearance of bags under the eyes and minimize fine lines and crow's feet associated with premature skin aging. The three active ingredients in Vivexin - Haloxyl, Eyeliss and Matrixyl - are backed with clinical research and positive consumer testimonials. If that's not enough to convince consumers to try Vivexin, the company offers a 90-day money-back guarantee so consumers can see the changes in eye appearance with the option of returning the product if they are not convinced >> Read more about Vivexin Go
