While some prefer to lean on the professional work of a dermatologist to smooth over pesky wrinkles, this method may not be for everyone. If you would rather stick to an anti-aging regimen from the comfort of your own home, you very well can. As it just so happens, Dr. Brandt Skincare has stepped up to the task of reversing your deepening expression lines, minus the needles. With its line of Needles No More anti-aging skincare, the brand aims to bring you doctor's office-level results through the daily use of its affordable products. While Dr. Brandt previously made waves with it’s No More Baggage Eye Depuffing gel (a personal favorite of mine), its Wrinkle Smoothing Cream has proved to be just as effective and well-loved by shoppers.
The cream specifically targets worsening forehead lines, crows feet, and frown lines, a.k.a. your expression lines. While these fine lines are the natural result of aging, the hypoallergenic formula seeks to delay the appearance of these wrinkles through continued use. The combination of neuropeptides and magnesium delivers softening and smoothing results across the areas of your face that need the most attention, providing a wrinkle-fighting complex that users say really works. The lightweight cream works well across all skin types and is fragrance-free, paraben-free, and safe for contact lens-wearers.
Many shoppers have taken to sharing their positive results across the internet and on multiple retailer sites, with some even claiming the formula reduced their wrinkles almost immediately. “I LOVE this stuff. I have always had very expressive facial movements, so those dreaded expression lines started to appear more and more within the past year,” wrote one Ulta reviewer. “You won't find me using injectables or other cosmetic procedures, so I set out to find some topical treatments and serums. Within the first day, I could already tell a difference (not to mention the double take in the mirror). My expressions no longer crease my forehead. It uses a peptide to temporarily and partially numb the muscles and smooth the lines (I think very similar to what injectables would do). You should totally check this out.”
While you may be skeptical just one cream could mirror the effects of a professional procedure, 100 percent of users in a brand-sponsored clinical study noticed a visible overall difference in their wrinkles in a matter of just four weeks, while over 90 percent reported the lines between their brows looked smoothed-over after just one hour. If that doesn’t sound intriguing enough, 100 percent of users said the skin around their eyes appeared more youthful in as little as 15 minutes.
