Not quite ready for the needle? Here’s a topical treatment that targets the same lines, wrinkles and signs of aging minimized by filler injections. Exuviance Targeted Filler T5 ($75) works to stimulate your own natural collagen directly beneath deep lines.
Formulated to help smooth out lines, even nasolabial folds (the creases running from your nose to mouth), Targeted Filler T5 features three key ingredients – CitraFill, NeoGlucosamine and Matrixyl Peptides. Laboratory research shows that CitraFill significantly increases collagen synthesis, while NeoGlucosamine boosts hyaluronic acid production.
“Exuviance Targeted Filler T5 is a high performance product that contains a triple boost formula with CitraFill to help stimulate your own natural collagen and build your skin’s volume directly beneath the wrinkle,” stated Dr. Julie K. Karen, a board certified dermatologist at the Laser and Skin Surgery Center of New York. “While not as dramatic as an in-office procedure, it’s an easy and painless alternative to more invasive procedures such as injectables or lasers.”
According to company sponsored studies, 93% of users reported that overall signs of aging were significantly less noticeable after just 8 weeks. As it helps build natural volume of the skin, Targeted Filler T5 strengthens the support structure under wrinkles such as laugh lines, forehead creases and crow’s feet.
A special applicator tip guarantees that it is applied where most needed, like deep expression lines around the eyes, nasolabial folds, frown lines, forehead creases or wherever volume loss has occurred.
Launching in August, Targeted Filler T5 will be sold nationwide at Ulta and Exuviance .com.

For example, components of facial aging include pigment changes, loss of elasticity, muscle sagging and bone and fat loss, explained dermatologist Dr. Heidi Waldorf at last Saturday’s presentation entitled, “The Aging Face: Looking Beyond the Wrinkles,” part of the Face Forward Program held in New York City.
With age, the structural support of the face changes and diminishes. The supporting structures are no longer there so the skin hangs. This is where fillers can help, but there is a lot to know before jumping into treatment. For example there are at leas
BOTOX is what the ‘Housewives” of BRAVO swear by and what some celebrities admit to when they are suspected of having had much more work done. It is best known for its ability to erase frown lines and crow’s feet, although there is a growing list of other areas that it can treat from migraines to sweaty palms. Botulinum toxins work by blocking the nerve impulses to the wrinkle producing muscles to soften contractions. The result is that skin appears smoother and lines and wrinkles are reduced temporarily. The treatment is simple, effective with almost no discomfort, and you can go back to the office or dinner immediately. The effects lasts from three to six months in mo
