Hydroxatone is supposed to be an anti-aging revolution that will help you to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and otherwise visible signs of aging.
The makers of Hydroxatone also claim that with this wrinkle cream, you can get rid of age spots, boost your collagen production, prevent future wrinkles from even occurring, condition skin, and protect your skin from sun damage with SPF 15.
Other skin creams like Prevera use a similar all-in-one approach to great fanfare, but Hydroxatone believes it can compete because of a powerful ingredient known as Matrixyl that provides greater results.
Who Created Hydroxatone?
Hydroxatone is a product developed by Dr. Fiorillo, a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon.
He is internationally recognized for books and publications that he has written, and he has founded the Rockland Plastic Surgery Center and Escape Medi Spa in New York.
What is in the Hydroxatone Formula?
Hydroxatone has a number of ingredients, but its official website only actually names three: matrixyl, argireline, and hyaluronic acid.
Matrixyl is the only ingredient that actually produces more collagen and elastin.
Argireline only relaxes muscles which produces fast results, but it does not sustain them for long. In addition, hyaluronic acid is merely a moisturizer.
In all honesty, I am a bit concerned that Hydroxatone lists hyaluronic acid as one of the “active” ingredients because it does not directly contribute to the results they advertise. I would prefer to see more of the effective ingredients being listed in the top three.
Since Hydroxatone does not disclose a full ingredient list, I have my doubts about whether or not this wrinkle cream includes other active ingredients–and if any of these ingredients are included in the clinically proven amounts.
Many times when a product does not list the ingredient amounts it’s because they have used too little to produce promised results.
Will Hydroxaton Cause Any Side Effects?
From consumer reviews, I have learned that Hydroxatone can–and often does–cause redness, irritation, burning, itching, flaking, burning sensations, dry skin, rash, inflammation, sensitivity to the sun, peeling, and dryness.
How Much Does Hydroxatone Cost?
On the official Hydroxatone website, this wrinkle cream sells for $79.95.
Is There a Money-Back Guarantee?
Hydroxatone does come with a 30-day money-back guarantee, calling it your “risk-free trial” period, but according to consumers, there is a major risk: apparently the company actually charges you and refuses to give you your money back if you aren’t satisfied with Hydroxatone.
I would not recommend using Hydroxatone. It doesn’t have the right ingredients, and therefore it does not help your skin.
In fact, it could very well damage your skin.
Instead, I would suggest trying a product that uses peptides in addition to moisturizers.
