What Is Youthology?

By Melissa Voelker

  • Overview

    Getting older and beginning to look your age are two prospects that can be terrifying for women and men. But the cost of surgery to remove wrinkles and tighten up fine lines is not the only barrier to fixing those signs of aging. Many people are as afraid of surgery as they are of getting older. That is why cosmetic lines have produced entire series of products aimed at making a person look younger, without having to get surgery. Youthology is just such a line of skin care products, which is advertised to make you look years younger in less than two minutes.
  • Function

    Youthology is a line of skincare products designed by the Youthology Research Institute to remove wrinkles and other signs of aging, especially from the area around the eyes. It is advertised as able to work on wrinkles, fine lines, smile lines and the bags under the eyes.
  • Types

    There are several products in the Youthology line, including their highly advertised "90 Second Wrinkle Removing Serum." This product is meant to smooth out wrinkles and crow's feet from around the eyes, by using an ingredient known as active rejuvatin. The "90 Second Lip Line Smoother" works in a similar manner on the areas around the lips that have been damaged by age and habits such as smoking. The "Daytime" and "Nighttime Nourisher" versions moisturize and hydrate the skin, and are advertised to reduce wrinkles up to 54 percent in just two months. The Youthology line also includes two different facial masks. The first is the "Rich Collagen Repairing Mask," which utilizes a collagen infusion to repair the texture of the skin. The second is the "Radiance Mask," which resurfaces and smooths the skin.

  • Features

    There are several herbal complexes used as ingredients in the Youthology product line, including echinacea angustifolia and centella asiatica. Echinacea is known in the herbal health industry as an immune system fortifier, which can help fight off viruses such as the flu. While some scientific studies have shown that it can help reduce the chances of catching an illness, other studies have shown those original results to be inconclusive. Centella asiatica has been found by scientific studies to be mildly antibacterial, anti-viral and even anti-inflammatory. It has also been shown to help soften the skin of scars so that they look more like unblemished skin. The main ingredient of Youthology is a complex developed almost solely for this product line, Active Rejuvatin. This chemical mimics the effects of a surgical face lift by shrinking the skin and pulling it so that it tightens and smooths out. It is made to work on all skin types, regardless of age, gender or ethnicity.
  • Effects

    Some people who use Youthology products find that it takes several applications and a lot of experimentation in order to achieve the proper effect. While the Wrinkle Removing Serum should last eight hours, it can fail before that time period has elapsed. If you place the serum on incorrectly, it can also cause pinching and pulling of the skin that is uncomfortable and does not provide the expected results.
  • Considerations

    Like most products that promise amazing and spectacular results, Youthology does not work the same way on everyone who uses it. According to first-hand accounts by Youthology users who posted on Internet forums about the product, some people have had great results with the products, while others have seen only a small amount or no results at all.
  • Expert Insight

    The Youthology line of products received only two and a half out of a five-star rating on the Infomercial Ratings website. With over 30 user reviews, it was found that in most cases consumers did not see results from using the product, had trouble getting the advertised refund when they were not satisfied and were billed for products they did not order but received anyway. Some users did get some results from the products, but they were not as advertised.
