Dr Alek Nikolic Reviews Three Important Studies
See clinical evidence that demonstrates the effectiveness of Blemish and Age Defense Serum
SkinCeuticals have revealed 3 important studies that demonstrates the skin benefits of using SkinCeuticals Blemish and Age Defense Serum and why we should all add it to our skin care regimes.
See the Before & After Photos with real people using SkinCeuticals Blemish & Age Defense Serum and Dr Alek Nikolic’s short 1 to 2 minute video reviews of the three studies demonstrating the skin benefits of Blemish & Age on ageing, acne and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
Specifically Blemish & Age has been shown to have three major skin targeting solutions:
- Adult Acne Defense
- Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation Defense
- Ageing Defense
New evidence revealed that the Blemish & Age Serum is a targeted technology skin product that is specific to ageing skin that is prone to blemishes, pigmentation, pigmented marks and acne. Interestingly acne affects 25% of all adult men and 50% of adult women. Unfortunately, our skins during these outbreaks is more prone to developing scars, ongoing blemishes, increased oiliness, and post inflammatory dark marks or hyperpigmentation.

Applying the serum with a few drops every time will dramatically improve skin tone and texture, improve fine lines and reduce the appearance and number of dark pigmented marks.”[/quote]
