Wrinkle Treatment in Redondo Beach CA

Individuals in Los Angeles should choose wrinkle treatment products and services carefully*

Loreal (who is Lancome’s parent company) received an FDA warning due to the misleading claims of a product called  Genetique Eye Youth Activating Eye Concentrate, which retails at $98 for a 1.7 ounce container.

According to Loreal’s website, the cream boosts the activity of genes and stimulates the production of youth proteins.”

A  glamorous brand combined with  with  sophisticated  scientific wording may seem compelling.  For the most part, this amounts to just a  savvy marketing tactic.

A skin cream’s  ability to change how genes function is questionable.  It would also classify Genetique as a drug. The FDA defines  a drug to be  any product that is intended to affect the function or structure of the body.

Loreal did present research findings to support their claims. But the FDA maintained the position that Genetique (and other products offered by the brand)  is not “generally recognized among qualified experts as safe and effective for the above referenced uses.”

The company was urged to correct their website to avoid product seizures and injunctions against manufacturers.

The Food and Drug Administration promotes and protects public health by regulating prescription and over the counter drugs, among other areas.  For treating facial lines, the organization has approved injections like Botox, Radiesse, Juvederm, Restylane and Belotero.
