Prevage MD Frequently Asked Questions

Does PREVAGE MD anti-aging treatment work better than other topical antioxidants?
Yes. Idebenone, found in PREVAGE MD [1% Idebenone], is scientifically shown to be more effective than other topical antioxidants in protecting your skin against environmental stressors known to cause skin aging. These other antioxidants include kinetin (used in Kinerase), coenzyme Q10 (Q10 Plus Wrinkle Control products from Nivea), lipoic acid (used in N.V. Perricone M.D. Cosmeceuticals), vitamin C, and vitamin E (found in many anti-aging products).

What can idebenone 1% do for my skin?
Idebenone 1% anti-aging treatment helps correct the skin damage that you already have and also protects your skin from future damage. The antioxidative power of PREVAGE MD has been clinically shown to reduce the signs of skin aging in only 4 weeks.

In a recent survey of 18 subjects with severe to moderate photodamage:

  � 72% of subjects reported reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
 
  � 78% of subjects reported reduction in roughness and dryness
 
  � 78% of subjects reported improvement in skin softness and smoothness
 
  � 61% of subjects reported improvement in firmness, tightness, and elasticity
 
  � 67% of subjects reported improvement in overall appearance
 

In addition, a majority of subjects reported an overall improvement in their skin�s healthy appearance after just 4 weeks of use.

Fine lines and wrinkles, roughness and dryness, and a lack of firmness and elasticity are generally regarded as signs of sun damage.

How is PREVAGE MD anti-aging treatment different from the products sold in the department store?
There are many different types of anti-aging treatments available. Some of them now contain antioxidants. Only PREVAGE MD has 1% idebenone. PREVAGE MD is available only from your doctor.

How do I use PREVAGE MD anti-aging treatment?
Skin reactions to PREVAGE MD anti-aging treatment may be more likely to occur within the first several days of using the product. For this reason, before beginning to use PREVAGE MD on a regular basis, apply a small amount of product (less than one pump) daily for several days to a small area of skin in the area you plan to use the product. If any itching, burning, redness, or swelling occurs during this trial period, wash the product off and discontinue use. Contact your dispensing physician to discuss your reaction and to receive a refund. If no reactions occur, follow the instructions below.

Regular usage of PREVAGE MD anti-aging treatment
If you have normal skin sensitivity, after following the Test usage of PREVAGE MD instructions and if no reactions are seen, begin using PREVAGE MD anti-aging treatment once a day for the first week, and, if tolerated, twice a day from then on. If any itching, burning, redness, or swelling occurs at any time while using the product, wash the product off, discontinue use, and consult your dispensing physician as needed. Skin reactions may be more likely in individuals with sensitive skin, eczema, or allergies to cosmetics, hair dyes (para-phenylenediamine (PPD), bleaching agents (hydroquinones), sulfa compounds, or jewelry.

Even though PREVAGE MD anti-aging treatment protects your skin against environmental stressors, it is not a substitute for sunscreen. Always use a sunscreen with a minimum of SPF 15 every day.

How much PREVAGE MD should I use?
Push the pump down once or twice to dispense a pea-size amount. Thoroughly massage PREVAGE MD anti-aging treatment into your clean, dry face and neck twice a day or as instructed by your doctor.

Can I use PREVAGE MD in combination with other products?
Skin reactions to PREVAGE MD anti-aging treatment may be more common in individuals who are using multiple skin care products. If you are currently on an aggressive skin care regimen, your skin may become more sensitive to PREVAGE MD.

In general, apply PREVAGE MD directly after cleansing your skin and before applying any other products.

Will PREVAGE MD cause any skin reactions?
Skin reactions to PREVAGE MD anti-aging treatment may be more common in individuals who have recently had certain medical skin care procedures. If you have recently undergone laser resurfacing, dermabrasion, medium to deep chemical peels, or any other aggressive skin therapies, you should wait 7 to 10 days before starting to use PREVAGE MD. It is important that you first perform the Test usage of PREVAGE MD instructions as outlined above. If you do not experience a reaction following this test, begin using PREVAGE MD once every other day for the first week of use.

During this time, if you experience any itching, burning, redness, or swelling, wash the product off, discontinue use, and consult your physician. If you do not experience any skin reactions during this one-week period, increase product usage to once a day for the next week and to twice a day the following week.

Are there any special instructions for using PREVAGE MD?
If you are using retinoids or other products dispensed or prescribed by your doctor, ask about the appropriate use of these products in combination with PREVAGE MD. And, if you are currently on an aggressive skin care regimen such as laser resurfacing, dermabrasion, or medium to deep chemical peels, your skin may become more sensitive to PREVAGE MD. Discuss with your doctor when you should begin using PREVAGE MD anti-aging treatment after your procedure. To view complete PREVAGE MD Patient Instructions, click here.

Is PREVAGE MD a sunscreen?
No, PREVAGE MD anti-aging treatment is not a sunscreen. After applying PREVAGE MD, you should also apply a sunscreen with UVA and UVB protection and an SPF of at least 15.

What is the difference between PREVAGE MD anti-aging treatment and AHAs (alpha-hydroxy acids)?
AHAs are obtained from fruits, sugar cane, and sour milk and are found in a variety of skin care products including moisturizers, cleansers, and sunscreens. AHAs act primarily as exfoliants, helping to shed the outermost layer of the skin to make it look smoother and less wrinkled.

PREVAGE MD anti-aging treatment works differently. It contains idebenone, an antioxidant that scavenges harmful free radicals in the cells of your skin and protects it from damage from external environmental stressors such as UV light, air pollution, ozone, and cigarette smoke, to name a few. PREVAGE MD also reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as skin roughness and dryness, and evens skin tone to restore youthful-looking skin.

Where can I get PREVAGE MD anti-aging treatment?
You can purchase PREVAGE MD only at selected doctors offices. You can find a physician by clicking here.

PREVAGE MD anti-aging treatment is distributed solely to doctors and should be used under physician supervision. Since PREVAGE MD is only dispensed in doctors offices, Allergan cannot authenticate any product purchased over the Internet. PREVAGE 0.5% is available at department stores and prestige retailers.

Do I need an appointment with a doctor to get PREVAGE MD anti-aging treatment?
Although PREVAGE MD is available only through doctors, most offices do not require an appointment to purchase it.
