Dermavisu is a moisturizing, anti-aging serum that targets the visibility of facial wrinkles. Its difference to similar products is that it continuously decreases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles the longer it is used, with noticeable results in just 2 weeks. Its active ingredients are octapeptide, a wrinkle reducer, and hydronium 55, a specialised type of chemical water.
The site’s introductory blurb postulates that their product is better than Botox, and that it’s the “revolutionary new anti-aging ‘miracle serum’ that’s taking Hollywood by storm”. The main page promises an increasing reduction of fine lines and wrinkles – 37% in 2 weeks, 150% in 4 weeks and 512% in 12 weeks. The very long main page has several written testimonials along with some “after” photos, but little else in the way of a decent before/after comparison. The site’s copy is slightly pushy, and there are some bold claims in the testimonials (“the number 1-rated wrinkle treatment”) without actually providing a source or results of clinical trials.
The site’s FAQ section is fairly useful, recommending the use of sun block and advising that Dermavisu is not a substitute for a normal moisturiser. It also states that 100% of users see “significant results every month”.
Dermavisu – Product Description
The serum has 6 main active ingredients. Hydronium 55 is a chemical water which neutralises skin-damaging free radicals and helps combat anti-oxidants on the cellular level. Snap-8 (an octapeptide) is a protein that specifically targets wrinkles in a similar manner to Botox’s botulinum toxin, but is milder in its action. The formula also includes a collagen-promoting ingredient Syn-Coll and DMAE (diamethylaminoethanol), which has a firming effect on the skin. Lastly, the serum also contains frankincense and jojoba, known respectively for their anti-inflammatory and moisture-controlling properties.
The cost of Dermavisu is $249.99 per bottle (which last 3 months, although the size isn’t clearly discernible), although currently the site is offering a limited supply of bottles for $125 each. Also for sale is their microdermabrasion cloth (used to exfoliate the face), which is free if you buy two bottles of the serum. Shipping is within 2-5 business days, and sadly there is neither no trial nor a money-back guarantee: the site states that all sales are final “to keep prices as low as possible”.

Dermavisu – The Bottomline
While Dermavisu appears to be a promising anti-wrinkle treatment, there’s little impartial information on the web about positive or negative experiences with the product, and it is difficult to determine what some of the renamed ingredients (e.g. Syn-Coll) actually are. There is no information listed on clinical trials of its indecipherable ingredients. The company makes a point of stating on their site that there are no refunds for any reason to keep costs down, but yet makes bold claims of their product’s superiority over others. Without any free trial, low-cost sample or money-back guarantee, $125 (or $250 at the full price) seems too much to pay if the product does not live up to its promises.
