I’m sure you’ve read some of the reviews that we’ve written on Perricone MD products. If not, then you may want to check out some of them. We’ve also written some news updates that have featured Dr. Perricone such as this one here. At any rate, if you’re interested in his products, there’s a good chance that you’ll eventually run into the Cold Plasma Sub-D neck cream. It’s a very popular product that many consumers throughout the United States like to use daily.
Why do you think it’s so widely used? Well, I’d like to start with the fact that it’s created and backed by a well-known dermatologist. It’s also a relatively expensive product that costs more than $100 for less than a 2oz container. Many people often think that the more expensive it is, the more effective it likely is. Well, that’s not always the case. Sure, it is on certain occasions but the price isn’t the only determining factor here.
There are a plethora of products on the market that make bold claims of being the best “face lift in a jar.” However, the effectiveness of this product isn’t really coming down to skin type, specific condition and a few other things such as which chemicals/ingredients work best for your skin. The good news is that it’s not all that difficult to determine this stuff. With a little bit of trial and error, testing from your dermatologist and a few other things, you’ll be able to safely and effectively fix your skin no problem. Anyway, enough about all that, let me shed some light on the main subject here, the Cold Plasma Sub-D product.
Here’s How Cold Plasma Sub-D Works
Based on some research that I did, here’s what I’ve learned about the product and how it works. Perricone MD claims that the skin cream was formulated to target the saggy neck skin that exists under your chin. They also make claims that it can help improve the shape and form within this region.
Additionally, the Cold Plasma Sub-D neck cream is said to help minimize the damage that’s been done to the skin, better tone the area, and even help reduce the presence of those fighting off a double chin. Now, I know a handful of people that would jump on that if it were 100% legit. What I’m going to personally tell you is that if you’re battling a double chin and you’re doing nothing other than applying this cream, your results will likely only be sub par at best (no pun intended).
Background Info On Perricone MD
Here’s a quick rundown of the Perricone MD company. For starters, this is a skin care company based in the United States. The company focuses on providing anti aging solutions to consumers across the globe. One of their products is the one I’m discussing today, the Cold Plasma Sub-D neck cream and it’s one of many they produce. Most of the reviews on the company are stellar. Will this neck cream get the job done and improve your sagging turkey neck skin? I don’t know, that’s for you to find out I guess.
As for company establish dates, it was started in 1997 by Dr. Perricone, who is a dermatologist living in the United States. Dr. Perricone is supposedly well-versed when it comes to inflammation and the impact it has on the aging process.
Cold Plasma Sub-D Ingredients
Before using any type of product it’s crucial to get a better understanding of the ingredients that a product contains. I’ll kick things off by confirming that this neck cream contains the following ingredients which are worth highlighting:
- alpha lipoic acid
- palm oil
- rosehip seed oil
- cranberry seed oil
- glycolic acid
Here’s a full list of all the ingredients provided by the company:
Aqua (Water), Glycerin, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, Phosphatidylcholine, Isopropyl Palmitate, L-Tyrosine, Butylene Glycol, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Oligopeptide-17, Ceteareth-20, Magnesium Aspartate, Zinc Gluconate, Dimethyl MEA (DMAE), Docosahexaenoic Acid, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Phenoxyethanol, Dimethicone, Caprylyl Glycol, Glycolic Acid, Retinyl Palmitate, Saccaromyces Ferment, Elaeis Guineensis (Palm) Oil, Carbomer, Disodium EDTA, Tocotrienols, Copper Gluconate, Polysorbate 20, Sorbic Acid, Tocopherol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Astaxanthin, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-3 (Source: perriconemd.com)
Of all those ingredients listed, the most important one is the DMAE. This ingredient is very helpful. It helps improve cell function and the communication between the skin cells. It’s an ingredient commonly found in brain supplements also known as nootropics.
Another well-known ingredient in this formula is the alpha lipoic acid. This is a chemical that’s as an antioxidant which is naturally produced. Incorporating it into a skin care product can help repair the damage that’s been done to the skin due to free radical build up.
If you take a look at the full ingredient list, you’ll also notice that the product contains caffeine. This ingredient is known for helping shrink blood cells, reduce puffiness in the under eye region and more. It’s a commonly used ingredient. You’ll find it in many of the eye creams out there. There’s a chance that the caffeine might help dehydrate the skin and shrink that double chin that you have. However, the best bet is to start eating right and working out (do chin fat exercises) if this is a big issue for you.
Another ingredient you’ll find in this product is glycolic acid. This helps better exfoliate the skin and cleanse your pores. It’s another commonly used ingredient that you’ll find on lots of skin product labels out there.
Many of the reviews published on the Cold Plasma Sub-D neck cream are unfortunately not very positive. The reason is likely due to the fact that it’s so expensive. When people buy a product that’s expensive, they expect expensive results. When the results are disappointing, it really makes them mad and that’s when they write reviews.
People have mentioned that the caffeine is ineffective in making their double chin disappear. Others have mentioned that the DMAE didn’t improve their skin the way it promised.
The only way to truly find out how it’s going to work is to give it a try. However, you don’t do that without understanding the side effects.
The Side Effects
For the most part, the main side effects reported when using the Cold Plasma Sub-D are irritation, redness of the skin, allergic reactions and a few other minor irritation issues. Before you use this neck cream, do yourself a solid and check out other neck creams that are out there. For added protection, speak with a dermatologist before doing anything.
