Hi there folks, you may remember that a month or so ago I reviewed part of the Anti-Aging line by the folks as NeoStrata, it was called Exuviance Peel CA10. That product helped out my skin, especially lightening up some dark spots on my skin and helped my pores appear smaller.
I was contacted once again by the folks at NeoStrata for their Exuviance Line, as they introduced their newest addition to the anti-aging line their Targeted Filler. And you know this former Cosmetologist, I jump at the chance to try something new for my skin and since I had such a great experience with the first product, I was excited to try the new one.
The Targeted Filler T5 was recently mentioned in Family Circle and American Spa.
Family Circle’s October 2012 issue:
“Turn Back Time Exuviance Targeted Filler T5’s pen-like applicator lets you target deep expression lines”
American Spa, September 2012:
“For all skin types, Exuviance’s Targeted Filler T5 helps build skin’s natural volume and smoothes Laugh lines, forehead creases, and other signs of aging. This filler contains a triple-boost formula that helps stimulate collagen and provides visible results in 8 weeks.”
The Targeted Filler, is contained in a tube with a plunger and a rubber tip on the other end, made to look like an syringe like you would have used on you if you paid a fortune for a cosmetic filler (AKA: a Dermal Filler) done.
Similarly The Targeted Filler is made to help with those areas that you would have a Dermal Filler for. An example are nasal labial folds around your mouth. Also the product can help soften the lines from areas that the wrinkles would be softened by use of botox, such as the area between the brows or the forehead.
I was glad to have been offered to try this product because I noticed that the area between my brows was looking very wrinkled, when about a month or so ago when I did a video review for another product. I had done several takes on my review and while going through the takes to find the best one for the review, I noticed in one that those wrinkles were starting to really show up. In my past, not only did I love to act, but my face is very expressive (a wrinkle causation), and I had abused my skin with bad sun habits in my younger years. Add all these things together along with Chronic Pain and you have the perfect recipe for some serious lines.
My Before Picture, taken from that video taped review that I mentioned:
I have used the NeoStrata Exuviance Targeted Filler for about a month now. I have to say that the product is slightly thicker then I first thought, since I had seen it in the tube with the syringe look to it I imagined I would have a lot of control over how much I get out of the tube at once when depressing the plunger. For the longest time while using it I’ve gotten more out then I intended to. Now I have figured out what works for me is a bit of a quick tapping of the plunger and then I can get less out all at once. Granted part of the problem is with my hands and arms as they are weak with some injuries so I was unaware that I was squeezing hard, since anything with squeezing seems hard to me. lol
Although the recommended usage time to really see the results is 8 weeks, here (below) are my results after only 4 weeks of using Exuviance Targeted Filler T5… I think you will agree with me that 4 weeks has made a noticeable difference in those lines (never mind the fact that I didn’t neaten up my brows for this picture though… lol):
I broke out with the first few uses of the product, I tend to be sensitive to some products due in part to the Lupus SLE and the sensitive skin it can cause. But with a couple of days rest between those first few applications, I found my skin adjusting well to the product.
The results? I have noticed that the lines are less noticeable than they were before, even more obvious to me now as I took a picture and can see the difference! I am impressed! Why these results? The ingredients in the product help to stimulate your own collagen and build your own skins volume below your wrinkles. This, just like all skin surface applications of products, the results will not be as dramatic as if you went to have a procedure done in-office, but it’s easy and painless, less expensive and of course less evasive.
Exuviance Targeted Filler contains a ingredient called CitraFill™ and the other 2 ingredients that make up this “triple boost” formula are NeoGlucosamine® and Matrixyl® Peptides.. together these three help with the collagen stimulation. And with the help of the applicator you can target the areas that you need to see the improvement in. The only problem with the applicator, for me, is that thickness of the lotion as it comes out thicker then the lines I was trying to target, so I am getting the product on the surrounding skin as well, however one would still get the product on surrounding tissues when you go to lightly rub it in anyway, so no big deal at all.
Do I like what the Exuviance Targeted Filler T5 has done for me? Oh yes, it helps to soften the lines, making them less noticeable. And when you are sick with an autoimmune illness, like I am with Lupus SLE, you don’t want the evasive treatments that you would have done with an in office procedure… who wants to risk making themselves worse by adding something more to their bodies that would possibly make your illnesses worse or activate an illness that has been in remission?
In conclusion nothing is going to do as much as an in office procedure for those wrinkles, but why pay the price for in office procedures and risk to your health when you can buy Exuviance Targeted Filler T5 instead. With the Targeted Filler you can soften those lines and feel better about your appearance without an appointment, without pain, without healing time either. And for me the convenience of using the product at home was well worth it… and I even saw results in half their recommended time (I saw results in just 4 weeks).
Thank you NeoStrata for yet another wonderful product for review! I love your Exuviance Line!
