Sheer Science FAQ's

Plexaderm

 

Q: How do I apply Plexaderm Rapid Reduction Serum?

A: Be sure to wash and dry your skin first. Slowly press down on pump to dispense a small amount of serum onto fingertip (start with about half the size of a pea). Gently apply a thin, even layer to targeted areas, being careful to avoid contact with eyes. Allow Plexaderm® Rapid Reduction Serum to set and dry (10 minutes for optimal results).

 

Q: I am having trouble dispensing Plexaderm Rapid Reduction Serum

A: During your first use you may need to press the pump 10 times or more until product begins to flow.  If you experience any difficulty please contact our Customer Care department immediately. DO NOT attempt to alter or adjust the pump as this may cause irreparable damage to the bottle. 

 

Q: How long do the Plexaderm results last?

A: In a test when image analysis was used, temporary improvement continued to be seen for up to 10 hours. Plexaderm works best when applied to clean and dry skin. Allow at least 10 minutes for Plexaderm to set before applying anything over it.

 

Q: How much solution should I use for one application?

A: We suggest using a drop about half the size of a pea, which should be enough to apply under both eyes. However, everyone’s skin is different, so if you notice the effects to be too strong, simply reduce the amount of formula to a level that works best for you. If you are using Plexaderm Rapid Reduction Serum on a larger area like the neck, 11 lines etc. more serum may be needed. 

 

Q: What is the best time of day to apply Plexaderm?

A: Plexaderm Rapid Reduction Serum can be used any time of day. Just make sure to wash and dry your skin thoroughly before applying Plexaderm.

 

Q: Why am I getting a white residue?

A: If you are getting a white residue around the application area it usually indicates that you have used too much product. Excess residue can be easily removed by gently tapping the area with a damp cloth or cotton ball.

 

Q: Can you apply makeup over this product?

A: Eyeshadows, liner, mascara and blush are all good products to use with Plexaderm. If liquid foundation is a must then first try to avoid areas where Plexaderm has been applied since many of the oils in makeup will lessen the effects. Some water-based foundations can be lightly applied over Plexaderm after it dries.

 

Q: What can I do if my foundation is not water-based?

A:  We find Plexaderm works best with makeup products that do not contain oils. Try to avoid areas where Plexaderm has been applied. Some water based foundations can be lightly applied over Plexaderm after it dries.

 

Q: Can I use a moisturizer with Plexaderm?

A: The Plex-Perfect Daily Moisturizer was developed specifically to be used with our Plexaderm Rapid Reduction Serum. The oil-free formula works to thoroughly hydrate the skin without impacting the amazing skin-tightening effects of the Serum. If you are using your own moisturizer it should be oil-free and applied at least 10-20 minutes prior to the Rapid Reduction Serum, but results can vary from product to product. 

 

Q: Does Plexaderm work on other parts of the face and neck?

A: Yes, Plexaderm Rapid Reduction Serum can be applied to all areas of the face and neck.

 

Q: Can Plexaderm be used on the sagging upper eye skin as well?

A: Caution should always be taken when using any beauty product around the eyes. That area is sensitive and we do not recommend applying Plexaderm Rapid Reduction Serum on your eyelid.

 

Q: What are the ingredients in Plexaderm?

A: Plexaderm Rapid Reduction Serum contains the following ingredients: Purified Water (Aqua), Propylene Glycol, Sodium Silicate, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, Hydrolyzed Rice Protein, Soluble Collagen, Cellulose Gum, Xanthan Gum, Titanium Dioxide, CI 77491, CI 77492, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin

 

Q: My pump doesn’t seem to be working.  Is my bottle empty?

A: If the pump has never been used before it just needs to be properly primed.  Using your thumb, slowly and firmly push the pump down until it cannot go any further. Continue pushing down the pump another 10-15 times until product begins to flow. Sometimes it can take longer, please be patient.

 

Q: How long does one bottle of product last?

A: A single bottle of Plexaderm Rapid Reduction Serum usually lasts about 30 days when using the recommended amount under each eye daily.

 

Q: Why do my wrinkles look worse?

A:  If you do not apply Plexaderm Rapid Reduction Serum evenly, or use too much in one particular area, it can overtighten the skin creating the appearance of more wrinkles.  If this happens simply wash the product off and start over.

 

Q: Why does it feel like the product is drying my skin?

A:  Plexaderm Rapid Reduction Serum works by creating a temporary tightening effect on the surface of the skin.  It is not drying the skin, but it can feel that way to some users.  Our new Rapid Reduction Serum is much more comfortable than the previous version and does not create that dry feeling on the skin.

 

Q: Why is Plexaderm irritating my skin?

A:  There are no known side effects when using Plexaderm Rapid Reduction Serum as directed.  If you are experiencing sensitivity or irritation you should discontinue use immediately. 

 

Q:  What’s the difference between Plexaderm Rapid Reduction Serum and Plexaderm Rapid Reduction Cream PLUS?

A: The new Plexaderm Rapid Reduction Serum is an advanced formula that took over a year to develop.  It applies easier, works better, is more comfortable on the skin, and lasts longer (up to 10 hours) than our previous formula Plexaderm Rapid Reduction Cream PLUS.
