Just came from the dermatologist. She suggested adding Prevage to my skin care regimine. I decided to think about it when she told me the price. $150 per bottle which lasts about 6 weeks. To add that to my Retin-A is gonna' cut into my margarita madness money
Magnolia - that is really expensive. Unless you have an underlying skin condition that requires you to use that product, i think that you could do with something else. Is that a product that your dermo sells in the office? If so, she might be getting a commission on the the sales.
The ugly truth is that you cannot prevent wrinkles- you can make them less noticeable and you can make them go away with lasers, injections peels,facelifts etc.
beenie - thanks for the tip. I do know that when you go to Prevage's web site they have a disclaimer of any of the products sold outside of physican's offices. Guess they may be hot or counterfeit. Who knows.
MB yes I know...but for what its worth, so do all the professional haircare products that you buy from your hairdresser as well. Its a way of trying to preserve the hairdresser and M.D.'s revenue stream, as well as guaranteeing a quality product to consumers...but probably more of the former and less of the latter. But never the less I figure it may be worth a shot if you're a risk taker.
Check with your pharmacist and see if it's sold or held behind the counter as a non-prescription product. I would be very leery of any non-prescription product that is sold through the doctor as a non-prescription product. There is definitely a monetary incentive for doing this.
I have psoriasis and my previous dermatologist tried to sell me Amlactin XP for $70 and you can buy it at Costco Pharmacy for $28.
