I’m writing this Idrotherapy review after just a month of application.
I’m hugely excited about the future of anti wrinkle technology, especially when you consider the progress we have made in the last 5 years.
For example do you recall when botox first came into the limelight? Now instead of injecting needles directly into the areas most affected by wrinkles, there are creams like Natox available where you can get similar results only without the pain.
Idrotherapy is one of the latest anti wrinkle creams to be released onto the market.
I heard about this cream through a friend of mine who just turned 40 and no I won’t say her name! I just call her Wonder Woman because she doesn’t look a day over 30.
Anyway Wonder Woman first mentioned Idrotherapy to me about a month back and it’s something I’ve been trialing since then.
You’re about to read my official Idrotherapy review, so remember to take into consideration – this is only after a month of application.
How Does Idrotherapy Work?
When it comes to reducing the appearance of wrinkles, right now we basically have three methods available to us:
- Muscle contraction technology like Botox or Natox that hold our muscles in place, flattening out wrinkles in the process.
- Light reflecting technology like LifeCell, that prevent light from creating the shadows that cause of the appearance of deep wrinkles.
- Skin density technology that thickens skin, filling in fine lines and wrinkles in the process.
Idrotherapy is a product that sits in the third category mentioned above and according to a study which I assume was conducted by their team, showed the ability to increase skin thickness by “as much as 9%”.
It does this through two primary ingredients:
According to the company who first designed this compound, Matrixyl works by stimulating the cells necessary in the production process of collagen and elastin.
Collagen and elastin are the building blocks of new cell development, which makes up all the layers of our skin. The theory is, if you increase the production of collagen and elastin, you should technically be able to develop more cells. This would then of course lead to thicker and firmer skin, filling in wrinkles and fine lines in the process.
I don’t think they mention this on their site, but it’s actually a synthetic antioxidant, who’s purpose is to increase the longevity of cell life. Antioxidants are important for skin as they remove free radicals that could potentially lead to the break down of collagen and elastin.
Free radicals normally come from outside influences in either the form of diet or dermal absorption(when something is absorbed through your skin pores). They carry an extra oxygen molecule that binds to collagen and elastin, breaking them down in the process.
Sounds kinda technical, but try and think of it in the same way that rust happens to break down metal.
What You Can Expect From Idrotherapy
To the right you can see an actual before and after pic of the kind of results you can expect to get after using Idrotherapy.
Now it’s unlikely everyone will see the same level of results, but it’s certainly exciting to see pictures like this.
Now I don’t have many deep set wrinkles (yet), but I certainly would like to see a change in my fine lines.
Using a cream like this before going to bed is likely to have the largest effect on flattening them out.
This seems to be the case when you look closely at the picture on the right.
What I Didn’t Like
There was one thing I didn’t like about Idrotherapy and that was it did tend to cause my skin to become more oily then normal. I have combination skin regularly so it can become oily from time to time, but never this much.
Thank god Wonder Woman came to my rescue once again recommending that I try combining treatment with argan oil to help regulate the oil production in my skin.
Not surprisingly it worked really, really well.
The other thing I should mention is that I was happier with the results I saw from using Natox as far as both of the products ability to reduce the appearance of wrinkles goes.
It’s hard to say, which one is actually better because although Natox worked almost immediately, I can imagine for those women with deeper set wrinkles long term application of Idrotherapy may offer better results.
Overall it isn’t the ‘best’ anti wrinkle cream I’ve ever tried, but that could be because I’ve only been applying it for a month. I’m going to keep using it for another 4 weeks and hopefully see an ever greater improvement in the reduction of my fine lines and wrinkles.
If I do see more progress, I may consider using it as my primary cream.
If you’re the kinda girl looking for a long term solution to the problem of fine lines and wrinkles, then certainly Idrotherapy can offer you some relief.
