My Review: Advanced Dermatology Skin Care (2021) – Scam Or Not?

It’s time to review Advanced Dermatology Skin Care – which is a skin care line made to combat skin aging.

But are there any chances that it is just a gimmick?

There are 6 products included in the set – which undeniably cost a lot.

But is the price and the whole package worth it?

Well, I tried to dig deep into the products’ info to give you the truth behind it.

Note: This review is based on my own experience + research on Advanced Dermatology Skin Care.

Review Summary

Full Name: 90 Day Power Anti-aging Regimen by Advanced Dermatology and Co Limited

Product Type: Anti-Aging Set

  • Cleanser
  • Serum
  • Day Cream
  • Night Treatment
  • Regeneration Cream
  • Eye Cream

Best Actual Prize: Around $285 (AUD)

Cheapest Place To Buy: Its Official Website

Designed For: Combating skin aging– it claims to:

  • reduce wrinkles
  • firm skin
  • lessen under-eye problems

My Rating: 5 out of 10

Recommended?: Not really. It’s not an awful brand, but I don’t consider it exceptional either.

There’s no guarantee that the whole set will really work as promised (given that each product has different compounds).

I personally suggest you go for the best anti-aging cream from the market instead.

 

What I Liked About It

  • It’s a full skin care routine set
  • Has a professional official website
  • Can be bought from their medical clinic

 

What I Didn’t Like About It

  • Very expensive
  • Not designed for all skin types
  • No list of ingredients given out for each product
  • Limited customer reviews
  • Products can’t be bought individually

 

 


Advanced Dermatology In A Nutshell


This brand solely focuses on skin care products.

This particular set is made for anti-aging and it includes the following products:

  1. Daily Renew Cleanser
  2. Super Youth Serum
  3. Complete Age Defense Day Cream
  4. Anti-wrinkle Firming Night Treatment
  5. Deep Cellular Regeneration Cream
  6. Youthful Boost Eye Cream

At first, this full set looks promising and seems like it covers all you needs.

However – there are some things that will make you think twice about it:

  • no official list of ingredients on their website
  • quite expensive for the 90-days supply
  • amount of the product may not last the said period of time
  • limited reviews from people who tried it
  • can cause skin irritations

One reason why there’s no list of ingredients is that the company probably wants to keep it a secret.

However –  I believe there should be at least some key ingredients listed.

Some customers may want to check out if something inside these products can cause them allergies.

So I don’t have a very good opinion on this brand, to be honest.

 


#1 – Claims & Producer


Based on the info I found on this set, here are some general facts I can give you:

  • what skin problem it targets
  • who is the company behind
  • how it works
1. Claims

This skin care set states to be sold by medical professionals.

It also claims to “give the most effective results, incomparable to most retail brands.”

According to the same promises – here’s how it claims to help:

  • recreates skin
  • lifts skin
  • creates more collagen
  • promotes skin elasticity
  • reduces wrinkles

Based on the info available – this brand aims to be sold from the clinic to the customers.

It doesn’t really sell the products through retailers and shops.

Plus – it also claims to be an alternative to cosmetic surgery and have the same results as botox.

Honestly – I’m pretty sure that’s impossible.

That’s because surgical treatment cannot be achieved by just using topical products.

So if you really want to get the lift, just spend your money on a real surgery.

2. Company Behind

This skin care set comes from the company called Advanced Dermatology and Co Limited.

It’s a brand that has different clinics in several parts of Australia.

So these are the things I found out about it:

  • sells only this set of product
  • the other treatments offered are surgical
  • based in Australia

There’s also the chance that this set is an extra product after getting their surgical treatment.

However, it’s also available for people who want to buy it alone.

Still – that’s just my guess and I can’t whether it’s true or not.

Other than that, Advanced Dermatology seems like a legit brand.

 


#2 – Formula (6 out of 10)


As I mentioned, there’s no list of ingredients for each item included.

But luckily – a higher number of ingredients are available on websites reviewing this set.

Now, here’s are its main problems:

  • products contain about the same ingredients
  • their composition is mostly effective for hydration
  • they only have a different texture

In other words – despite contains 6 products, this set doesn’t bring in various benefits.

All of its 6 products do the same thing.

That’s why they look quite disappointing, if you ask me.

So let’s take a look at each product’s key ingredients.

1. Daily Renew Cleanser

Based on the product’s website, this is the first step of the treatment.

It’s a foam cleanser meant to provide the deepest clean without stripping cells of vital moisture.

From what I read, these are the key ingredients that are probably present in this:

  • Sodium hyaluronate – provides a hydrating effect [1]
  • Plant extracts – has some anti-inflammatory properties

However, these ingredients are pretty common and can be found in almost any cleanser.

2. Super Youth Serum

This serum is the next step of this treatment.

And according to its claims, it’s meant to fight free-radicals.

It also promises to erase environmental damage and promote moisture with these compounds:

  • Hyaluronic Acid –  retains moisture
  • Lactic Acid – improves skin’s texture [2]
  • Peptides – gives younger-looking skin

These key ingredients look promising because of the amazing benefits you can get from them.

So it has one of the best formulations among the 6 products of this set.

3. Complete Age Defense Day Cream

This product should be used twice a day, according to its label.

So you obviously need to use it during daytime.

Let’s take a look at the major compounds present:

  • Hyaluronic Acid – gives smoother skin
  • Sorbitol – treats acne [3]

As written on its website, both ingredients are meant is to avoid moisture loss and boost environmental protection.

So they have some real benefits, that’s for sure.

4. Anti-Wrinkle Firming Night Treatment

As you can guess, this is the night product from Advanced Dermatology’s set.

And using this cream will boost cell renewal resulting in reduced creases and imperfections.

These benefits can be achieved with the help of these ingredients:

  • Peptides – reduces fine lines
  • Plant Stem Cells – promote cellular renewal [4]

Other benefits it claims to give include a smoother skin and a luminous glow.

5. Deep Cellular Regeneration Cream

Honestly – I don’t know when you’re going to use this product.

If the night treatment is formulated as a gel, then this could be the next step.

But there’s no exact info about it.

If you’re curious, these are the compound that can be present in this cream:

  • Squalene – provides an oil-based hydration [5]
  • Hyaluronic Acid – reduces fine lines

And according to its website, it is said to replenish moisture and strengthen the skin.

6. Youthful Boost Eye Cream

This is the last step of the skin care regimen which is said to be an ultra-light cream.

The benefit of this cream is to erase dark circles, bags and wrinkles.

All of these things are possible with the help of these compounds:

  • Plant extracts – give antioxidants
  • Peptides – boosts collagen production [6]

Usually, plant extracts are known to be part of any skin care product due to their benefits.


Conclusion

Based on all the things mentioned, I honestly think all these products are about the same.

At least in terms of benefits.

They are only formulated in different textures, that’s all.

Plus – their main purpose is to provide hydration and protect skin barrier.

But honestly – you can achieve this by just using one product.

That’s why I suggest that you look for a better alternative that is cheaper but still effective.

 


#3 – Consistency & Dosage (4 out of 10)


Since there aren’t any customer reviews available, I couldn’t really tell much about this set’s texture.

1. The Consistency

For this part, the following points are solely based on my observations:

  • it’s formulated as a serum, gel and cream
  • pretty intense scent
  • can be heavy or light

Now – the products are named as steps.

So you can get an idea about their texture based on that.

Other than that, the lack of customer reviews won’t confirm if these observations are true or not.

2. The Dosage

There’s really no solid instruction on its website regarding how to use this set.

But again, based on my observations, this is how you probably use it:

  1. Use the cleanser first.
  2. After drying the face, apply the serum.
  3. For day time, apply the day cream.
  4. For night time, apply the night treatment and then the regeneration cream.
  5. Lastly, apply the under-eye cream.

It’s true that applying the whole set may take a while.

But if you’re used to following a close skin care routine, it won’t be too hard for you.

Still – there are better alternatives out there that only require one step.

 


#4 – Results (4 out of 10)


For this chapter, I tried to look for authentic opinions from customers, but I failed to find too many.

So it’s very hard to judge it fairly, since I only found some opinions from 3rd party websites.

Note: I only consider authentic reviews, not promotional/fake ones.

1. What People Say

This product is exclusively available (only on its official website).

That’s why I expected a review from there.

Unfortunately, there aren’t any – that’s why I searched for what people say about it.

Here are the things mentioned on various websites:

  • some users noticed that their skin got smoother everyday
  • others say that their skin looks plump and healthy
  • a lot complain about poor customer service
  • the rest criticize the price 
  • a few people experienced pimples and breakouts

As much as possible, I usually don’t want to lean entirely on 3rd party websites.

But the lack of reviews from its own official website gave me no choice.

So these are the only opinions I could find about it.


Conclusion

I don’t really trust a product just because it has an official website and it comes from a legit brand.

So before really recommending it, I need to look at what people say.

And in this case, the overall opinion isn’t the most promising.

So for now, it’s not a skin product I would recommend.

 

 


#5 – Side Effects (5 out of 10)


Just like what I said in the previous chapter, it’s hard to tell if this set of products can cause side effects or not.

But judging after its potential ingredients, there are several possibilities:

  • allergic reactions to some ingredients present
  • can be very harsh to the skin
  • may not work at all
  • headache due to fragrance
  • other types of skin irritations

There’s only one thing that probably made me a little bit at ease with this product.

It is the fact that it comes from a medical clinic run by professionals (as mentioned on their website).

However, I still don’t consider this set as the safest anti-aging treatment plan.

 


#6 – Price (5 out of 10)


So far – I consider Advanced Dermatology really expensive.

Even if you consider that you’re getting 6 products, it’s still not a good deal for me.

1. The Exact Price

You can only purchase this set from their official website for now.

So here’s the deal you can get so far (prices are all in AUD):

  1. One set costs $285 ($680 normally)
  2. You can get it for $95 per month (in a 3 months installment)
  3. Also offers free shipping
  4. Comes with a 30-day money back guarantee

However – there’s a tricky thing.

The 90-day kit is not 3 times the amount you get from the 30-day trial kit.

Instead, you will only get approximately more than twice the amount:

  • ~120ml for the cleanser
  • ~15ml for the eye cream
  • ~30ml for the rest of the product

The total price of all the products (when bought individually) is equal to $680.

That’s even pricier and not reasonable at all, if you ask me.

You can’t spend that much every 90 days (unless you have an unlimited budget).

So I definitely don’t recommend going for this set, it’s simply too pricey.

2. Competitors’ Price

I only want to compare this cream with my #1 recommended anti-aging product.

I’m talking about Kollagen Intensiv:

  1. Kollagen Intensiv’s formula is one of the best by far.
  2. It’s packed with potent ingredients to combat skin aging.
  3. Advanced Dermatology has good ingredients too.
  4. But its 6 products are basically the same (in a different texture).
  5. Kollagen Intensiv costs $60 normally.
  6. In the best case, you can get it for about $36.
  7. Advanced Dermatology’s 90-day set costs $285 AUD.
  8. In my case, a jar of Kollagen Intensiv can last even 6 weeks.
  9. As for Advanced Dermatology, the set will not last 3 months (unlike its claims).

So putting these two face to face, I would surely stick to Kollagen Intensiv.

It’s cheaper but at the same time, it delivers some better anti-aging benefits.


Conclusion

Overall, this set is very expensive for its quality (and quantity).

It does come with 6 products, that’s true.

But all of them contain about the same ingredients – and they’re not anything special.

So the whole set is really overpriced, if you ask me.

 

 


#7 – Advanced Dermatology In 3 Ideas


Here’s how I would sum up my opinion on this skin care set.

1. Unknown Ingredients

This brands hides its ingredients is probably because they are quite basic.

However – they could have at least give the key ingredients.

I believe that it’s vital to know the ingredients of the products before buying them.

Also, I doubt its products are suitable for all skin types (as it claims). 

2. Limited Reviews

According to its website, this brand wants to keep the integrity of its products.

That’s probably why it doesn’t give out any customer review.

However, I rather see this as a downside:

  • people need to see how it works beforehand
  • some users may develop side effects

So I personally don’t trust products with no user opinions available.

3. Super Expensive

Lastly, this brand takes pride in offering the product for only $285 AUD (instead of $680).

But to me, that’s not a good deal at all.

Despite the fact that it contains 6 products, the final price is still huge.

So  I suggest you choose a better alternative that is worth the price.

 


My Verdict – Worth It Or Not?


Short answer: Not quite.

These are the reasons why I don’t consider this set a good choice:

  1. Unknown ingredients
  2. Super expensive
  3. Product quantity will not last for 90 days
  4. Lacks authentic customer reviews
  5. Not suitable for all skin types

I still believe that you don’t really need the set and that there are better alternatives out there.

At least I would not go for it, that’s for sure.

What do I recommend instead? An excellent cream called Kollagen Intensiv:

  • best forms of ingredients backed with clinical studies
  • complete product info
  • formulated as one product only
  • recommended by specialists
  • has authentic customer reviews
  • price is worth it

In my view, Kollagen Intensiv is far better compared to Advanced Dermatology.

It’s cheaper in price and proven effective.

So it’s clearly the alternative I would go for, at any time.
