Beam Me Up, Clinique

Laser-like effectiveness in a serum.

imageFirst it was BOTOX in a bottle, now cosmetic companies are trying to capture "LASER-like effectiveness in a serum".

Mount Kisco, NY skin expert Dr. David Bank uses a great number of laser treatments for different indications: from hair removal, to sun damage, to spider veins, to tattoos, to many others. "In general, when properly performed by a highly trained individual, these treatments are both safe and highly effective," Bank says.

Today's solution for younger skin is a visit to a professional like Dr. Bank for a targeted laser treatment.

Effective yes, costly yes-siree.

Soon to be one of the hottest launches of the year- Clinique's NEW Repairwear Laser Focus Wrinkle & UV Damage Corrector touts a technology known as "molecular delivery system". Clinique didn’t just wander into the labs and whip this miracle potion up; it has been in development for over 20-years.

Clinique's Laser Focus promises success and already promotes strong clinical backing, "just three drops of this serum twice a day will achieve 63% of the visible wrinkle reducing power of a laser in 12 weeks."

Impressive, I would say and its texture is rich and creamy rather than thin and watery like many serums. You will notice skin vibrancy after application that will make you very happy indeed. And it's perfectly fine to use around the eye area.

How can this serum act like a laser?

Obviously, there is no pulsating light beaming from the bottle. The secret is within the ingredient mix. A potent blend of repair enzymes work to help visibly reverse UV damage and mend solar scars. These UV repairers are smart and know which need to work harder during the daylight hours and which enzymes are best for nighttime intensity. High-level peptides boosts natural collagen production to improve skin's firmness, and appearance of lines and wrinkles, while antioxidants are included in the mix to ward off environmental aggressors.

The big debut: August and the price is marked right at ONLY $44.50.
