Dr. B noticed early on the exceptional improvement in his patient's skin condition after using glycolic acid in a standard office procedure known as the chem peel. When considering the best holistic treatment, Dr. B desired the same medically effective treatment for his patients to use safely at home. That's when the Ultra Anti-Aging Cream was developed.
Dr. B. and Dermatologist's Choice featured in WELL + GOOD, "I've been a Dermatologist for nearly 50 years, here's why I *always* recommend glycolic acid over retinol."
Featured in Byrdie "Is there a Tanning Oil that isn't bad for your Skin?"
"If you do find yourself with sun damage, Bottiglione recommends using an anti-aging cream with glycolic acid, such as the Dermatologist's Choice Ultra Anti-Aging Cream to help to regenerate the skin, rebuild the collagen, and exfoliate the top layer which removes the sun-damaged skin."
Featured in Birchbox "I've been hesitant to try new "skin clearing" or "anti-aging" creams since they all seem to over-promise and under-deliver, but this one is the real deal. It caused some initial stinging and slight redness, but once my skin got used to it (after about a week) I began to see noticeable improvements. I didn't think a guy in his 20s really needed something this strong, but looking back at pictures of myself from just a few months ago shows me just how much of a difference it's made. 100% recommend."
Next-level care. Meet the new standard in skincare. This day / night face, neck, and eye cream contains medical-strength non-neutralized glycolic acid and will bring your skincare routine to the next level. Non-neutralized glycolic acid AHA is safe but a powerful ingredient derived from sugar cane. It activates skin's cell renewal process and increases the production of collagen in the skin. It will leave your complexion clear, smooth and radiant.
*Like a traditional dermatology chemical peel treatment, skin may experience redness when treatment is first applied. Apply once a week for three weeks to start for skin to build tolerance to non-neutralized Glycolic Acid.
Derm Tip: For those who have never used non-neutralized Glycolic Acid before, start with our mild Facial Enhancement Cream daily moisturize with non-neutralized Glycolic to build tolerance to the powerful treatment ingredient. If skin comfortably tolerates the Facial Enhancement Cream it is possible to take the next step by applying the Ultra Anti-Aging Cream.

01. How often do I apply the Ultra Anti-Aging Cream?
Dr. B recommends starting off by applying a thin layer to your face and neck once a week for three weeks. Then build by adding an additional day every three weeks. For more oily skin a thicker application can be tolerated. For more sensitive dry skin a very thin layer is recommended.
02. What if I experience my skin tingle or sting after I apply the Ultra Anti-Aging Cream?
First, it is normal, don't worry. It will not burn the skin. The Ultra Anti-Aging Cream is formulated with a high percentage of active ingredients, the main one being Glycolic Acid (AHA). This cream is strong and comparable to a light Dermatology Clinic Chem Peel. For best results, when the skin tingles or stings apply moisturizer or rinse off with water a few minutes after application. This will calm tingling sensation but still deliver glycolic into the pores. The natural Glycolic Acid is derived from the sugarcane plant. It has been used for 40+ years to exfoliate the topical layer of skin while entering the pores to rebuild collagen. We have people of all skin types that use and love this product. Be patient as your skin builds up tolerance to the formulation. If irritation occurs temporarily discontinue use.
03. What if I break out after using the Ultra Anti-Aging cream?
If you breakout, temporarily pause application of Ultra Anti-Aging Cream. Use the Purifying Facial Toner and apply lotion or moisturizer for a week. When applying the Ultra Anti-Aging cream again apply a thinner layer or decrease weekly use. Increase use as skin builds tolerance.
