FAQ: Prevage MD vs. Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs)

AHAs are obtained from fruits, sugar cane, and sour milk and are found in a variety of skin care products including moisturizers, cleansers, and sunscreens.

AHAs act primarily as exfoliants, helping to shed the outermost layer of the skin to make it look smoother and less wrinkled.

PREVAGE® MD anti-aging treatment works differently.

It contains idebenone, an antioxidant that scavenges harmful free radicals in the cells of your skin and protects it from damage from external environmental stressors such as UV light, air pollution, ozone, and cigarette smoke, to name a few.

PREVAGE® MD also reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as skin roughness and dryness, and evens skin tone to restore youthful-looking skin.
