Start Fresh: DMAE


Everyone loves instant gratification, whether it’s comes from sinking your teeth into a delicious meal, plunging into a cool stream on a hot day, or pampering yourself with a long, relaxing massage.  You can give your skin the same kind of quick satisfaction with DMAE, which when applied to skin can produce a visible and gratifying improvement.  If you’ve shied away from so-called treatments because the very word conjures up visions of spending days carefully applying this and dipping in that until you finally see results, DMAE will change your mind.  It’s quick, it’s easy, and it works.

DMAE is  a great little acronym that’s easier to say than the tongue twister dimethylaminoethanol. Mixed in a cocktail with other nutrients, combined with an antioxidant base, and applied topically through skin treatments, like High Potency Amine Face Lift,  or moisturizers, like Face Finishing Moisturizer, DMAE can quickly and dramatically improve the appearance of sagging skin.  As an added bonus, DMAE boosts the effects of other antioxidants, resulting in increased smoothness, brightness, and line reduction.

What, exactly, is DMAE?  Unlike the antioxidants I’ve discussed so far, DMAE is an antioxidant membrane stabilizer.  Because of its unique structure, DMAE actually intersperses and becomes part of the cell plasma membrane.  When this occurs, the membrane is more able to resist stress and therefore is stabilized.  DMAE also gives some protection from free radicals – probably by preventing the other portions of the cell membrane from being attacked by free radicals – and therefore can act as an antioxidant.  Thus, DMAE is an antioxidant membrane stabilizer.  It prevents breakdown of the cell plasma membrane and the resulting production of arachidonic acid and a bunch of pro-inflammatory mediators.  When mixed with other amino acids and nutrients, it has a dramatic firming effect on skin.

Have you tried DMAE?

  1. I love the Face Finishing Moisturizer! I’ve gotten so many of my girlfriends hooked. I’m a very satisfied customer of your products Dr Perricone and so appreciate these articles. Your products, for me, are the first that actually deliver what they promise.

  2. The Face Finishing Moisturizer was one of the first products I purchased and it’s still one of my favorite Perricone MD products. Then again, I haven’t used a product from Perricone MD that my skin hasn’t enjoyed. I look forward to using the Face Finishing Moisturizer every morning!

  3. yes! i’ve tried DMAE..and love it! (along with all the other perricone products i’ve tried!) what are your thoughts on DMAE as a supplement?
    I can’t wait to try the Face Finishing Moisturizer!
