Questions & Answers for Dr. Brandt Skincare dr brandt® collagen booster™

Question
When should I start using this?
I got a sample of this, and I'm wondering if 27 is too young to start using this. I have some fine lines appearing under the eyes. I just worry, if I start using this now, will I be hooked and will the lines reappear once I stop using it?

My friend works for Dr. Brandt and he is a skin genius! I'm 28 years old and I started using anti-aging products at 25. I use this product and I love it. In fact most of his products are truly amazing! I always think it's best to prevent than try and treat after the wrinkles appear.

I'd wait till you hit 30 and then you'll have to use it and yes, you'll have to use to prevent the lines from appearing again, don't kid yourself about it.

The Sephora rep told my daughter (21) that she really didn't need products like this at her age. She recommended keeping her skin care routine simple. I really appreciated the sound advice given to her.

I'm 24 and been using this product because of the fine lines under my eyes and laughing lines. Personally, my opinion is the sooner you take care of something the better. I won't lie I am addicted to the product and use is exactly as directed and I haven't been disappointed with the results. Hope this responses helps!

I don't think 27 is too young! Your body's production of collagen starts slowing down at age 20, so anyone 20+ would benefit from anti-aging products. But if you stop using it, then yes the lines will reappear. The problem with fine lines and wrinkles is that there really is no way to get rid of them permanently. Even the best products will only minimize the appearance of wrinkles, not eliminate them for good - otherwise we'd all look young forever! So if you want to keep your skin looking as young as possible, it will be necessary to keep using anti-aging products, though it wouldn't necessarily have to be this one if you don't like it.

I don't notice any extra oiliness on my face with this product. I can't speak for breakouts, I (luckily) have not had too much of a problem with them. This product does seem to balance my skin better ie; oiliness vs. being too dry.

I tend to prefer oil-free products because of my oily skin, but I have found lavender oil and sunflower seed oil to be very beneficial for my skin. Even though there are oils in this, it doesn't have an oily feel. Natural oils can be great for your skin as opposed to synthetic oils which tend to be the stuff that causes acne. I haven't broken out using this, so I think you would be okay unless your skin is extremely sensitive.

The product itself has definitely helped diminish the signs of some slight scarring I have left over from acne. Ever since first starting usage, i've noticed immediate improvement in my skin and it has definitely helped to boost my confidence level. I wouldn't say it gets rid of the scars completely but it helps SIGNIFICANTLY in evening out the texture; the product provides visible results. Co-workers and friends alike have also noticed my skin look much more supple and smooth. I would recommend it even over a dermabrasion product - especially for those who have sensitive skin and can't use harsh scrubs.

If you are concerned with texture changes in your skin, you can use collagen booster twice daily along with a broad spectrum SPF of at least level 30 to protect your damaged skin from daily UV damage to help provide the best results.

If you also have dark spots left from acne, you should also use a brightening serum like flaws no more - flaws no more® lightening serum up to twice daily before collagen booster.

Many of our clients also use dr brandt microdermabrasion and/or laser a-peel to use weekly to help speed up cell renewal and bring more visible results sooner.

It's very possible that it could. I haven't personally been using this product long enough to tell, but because it stimulates collagen production, and collagen is one of the main proteins which keeps skin strong and promotes tissue development, it might be beneficial to scarring. It probably won't noticeably impact the visibility of scarring, but over time, it may help the skin to recover what it can in those areas.

Question
How does this compare to other collagen or Vitamin-C/peptide serums?
I've just finished my Philosophy serum, Hope is Not Enough, with Vitamin C and peptides, and I was wondering how this compares to both Philosophy and the Ole Hendrickson Truth Serum? Does anyone have comparative experience?

Also, I saw that the Dr. Brandt product has something that seems to be like a Vitamin C compound, but from my reading, it doesn't actually seem to be Vitamin C itself. How does this make a difference.

Just as an FYI, I'm 41 with combination skin and I use a lot of Dr. Brandt products, but this one seems a wee bit high in cost as compared to, say, the Ole Henrikson, so I was hoping to see what other peoples' experiences have been so that I could decide. I'd be grateful for any insights or stories about your experiences with any of these collagen-boosting type serums.

I'm just over 30 but I've used Ole Henrikson products before but they're a little bit milder than this one and I like that this collagen booster is a little bit stronger, works faster and produces the results as well. The bottle is not big at all but not small either and yes, it's pricey but I think it's worth it. Besides, a little goes a long way.

I have used both WHINE with the Vitamin C powder and the Truth Serum. Both of those serums outperform Collagen Booster hands down. They plump up skin and provide deep moisture. Also, both of those serums seem to brighten my face and to make it look more awake. Collagen Booster did the opposite by making me look tired. I would definitely pick Philosophy's or Henricksen's serums over this.

I have not tried the Ole Henrikson Truth Serum, but I use Philosophy When Hope is Not Enough and it is my favorite serum. I like it better than the Dr. Brandt Collagen Booster because I notice immediate effects, it is lightweight and non-sticky, it lightly moisturizes, and it has a pleasant smell. Plus, it's far less expensive. The Dr. Brandt Collagen Booster feels a little heavier on my skin and smells odd to me. It is a good product, but just not worth the extra cost in my opinion.

I think the vitamin C compound in the Collagen Booster you mentioned is Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate in the ingredients list. It is a derivative of vitamin C, which they use because vitamin C can be a little irritating. It is also more stable than vitamin C, which oxidizes when exposed to air and becomes less effective. The vitamin C compound in When Hope is Not Enough is also not vitamin C itself - it's a combination of vitamin C and E (Potassium Ascorbyl Tocopheryl Phosphate in the ingredients list). Generally, skin care products will probably contain a vitamin C compound rather than pure vitamin C itself, since it is more stable, more effective, and less irritating.

I hope this helps!

I don't know about this product helping with pock marks but someone told me that glycolic acid and peels help get rid of pock marks and it really is true (this product doesn't contain any such ingredients). I have some small pock marks on my temples on both sides of my face and one big one right by my nose ( its from a huge zit that took me forever to get rid of and once i did it left a pock mark). I've been using REN's resufacing AHA concentrate and then when im not using the concentrate i use either REN's glycol lactic radiance renewal mask or the dr. dennis gross alpha beta original peel packets. Using all these together have made my pock marks less visible and almost none existent. It does depend on how deep your scars are and how often you use your products. Also i don't use the concentrate religiously like is advised on here. I probably use it for 7 days once a month and the peels once a week (and i don't use the peels or the concentrate on the same day because it would be too much for my skin). ive been doing this for 6 months or so and my skin is so much better. Also don't forget sunscreen if you use peels or anything with acids in them as they make your skin sensitive to the sun.

Since the Dr. Brandt Glow serum is to be applied at night, we suggest applying this serum in the AM before your moisturizer.
