You may be familiar with the term “free radical damage,” but what you might not know is that your skin is constantly exposed to free radicals, even if you’re not spending hours in the sun. That’s because sources of oxidative stress and damage from free radicals include much more than just UV rays, although they are a large contributor. For example, if you live in an urban setting, the air pollution that constantly bombards your skin can lead to free radical damage. Cigarette smoke and visible and infrared light also contribute to oxidative stress. Living in Arizona, especially during the summer, is extremely difficult on your skin. The skin expects at Dermacare Cosmetic Surgery are excited to have Alto Defense Serum to help their patient’s skin combat the Arizona Sun.

And while many of us believe we are taking sufficient precaution by using a daily sunscreen, that may not be enough. Sunscreens block and scatter UV rays, but are not 100% effective due to application specifics (type of sunscreen, accuracy, frequency). And, most important to consider, sunscreens do not have the ability to neutralize or short-circuit free radicals. So what can you do to help keep you protected from free radical induced damage, even when the sources of oxidative stress are difficult or even impossible to avoid? Thankfully, there is a new and innovative antioxidant serum that can help.

What Is Alto Defense Serum™?

Alto Defense Serum™ is a revolutionary new product recently launched by skinbetter science and is now available at Dermacare. It contains 19 different antioxidants to provide your skin with 360 degree support, even in the face of a variety of potential sources of free radical induced damage. This begs the question, “What is free radical induced damage, anyway, and why is it such a concern?” Free radicals are highly unstable molecules that can wreak havoc to the skin and body if left to their own devices (The International Dermal Institute). Antioxidants are able to neutralize these free radicals and prevent the oxidative stress that they can otherwise induce.

The problem with many antioxidant serums is that using just one or two antioxidants isn’t enough to give the skin the support that it needs, especially when exposed nearly 24/7 to sources of oxidative stress. Alto Defense Serum™, however, contains a proprietary blend of 19 antioxidants designed to dynamically enhances natural free radical neutralizing elements. Alto Defense Serum™ has been able to drastically improve the appearance of redness and wrinkles, even for people with sensitive skin types or rosacea.

Dermacare staff and patients are not the only ones raving about this amazing new serum. Allure Magazine has recently featured skinbetter science’s Alto Defense Serum™, explaining that “its impressive medley of antioxidants — vitamins C and E, coenzyme Q10, grape seed extract, cocoa, turmeric, green tea, coffee, superoxide dismutase and more — [work] in synergy to provide skin with a sort of blanket protection. This combination alone is considered ‘somewhat of a milestone for antioxidants,’” according to anti-aging researcher David H. McDaniel. The article goes on to explain that after just four weeks of use, Alto Defense Serum™ has been able to drastically improve the appearance of redness and wrinkles. Allure beauty experts agree that if you want 360 degree skin support which can lead to a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, redness and discoloration, Alto Defense Serum™ is a must-have in your everyday skincare routine.

If you’d like to try Alto Defense Serum™ for yourself and reap the amazing benefits of its revolutionary combination of antioxidants, come to Dermacare.
